First Car Rental Wins Four 2017 ACSA Feather Awards

December 2017 - First Car Rental is proud to announce that four of its airport branches have been named 'Best Medium Car Rental Operator' in 2017 by the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).

The branches are: First Car Rental Bloemfontein Airport, First Car Rental Kimberley Airport, First Car Rental Upington Airport, and First Car Rental King Shaka International Airport.

The annual ACSA Feather Awards recognise top performing airport members for outstanding customer service rendered throughout the year. The awards are based entirely on customer feedback, which is collected through surveys, face-to-face interviews and "mystery shopper" appraisals. This data is then analysed by two independent organisations, the Transport Research Laboratory based in the UK and the Airports Council based in Switzerland.
