Melbic car hire

Hi,

Has anyone ever heared of Melbic car hire in Windhoek?

This should be a new 4x4 hire company since 2015 and I want to know if this is an approved company and what the experiences are with them?

Kind regards,

Absolutely high class rental company. Just back from Namibia and I hired a 4wd with camping equipment. Everything was perfect. New car with good equipment. Great s rvice from the people in the office. I could not rate them highly enough.

Hi,

We had 3 week with melbic car rental, just coming back now, and I can not advice this company.

We had a very very bad experience,! At the check out, they are really not fair and will charge a lot, even for a very small bump as the official quotation for fixing the price is done by a garage which belongs to....Melbic Manager brother! (600 euros for a 10 cm bump at the back of the trunck for example) And thus even if we took the most expensive insurance for the 3 weeks renting ! The manager Servaas will directly threntened you agressively to call the airport customs to block you if you dare discuss the price.

Don 't make our mistake!

We rented two 4x4 Toyota Hilux cars for a 3 weeks trip in Namibia in July/August this year. As we didn’t follow only the classical routes, we wanted to be fully equipped. Melbic didn’t disappoint us : our 2 cars (out of which one was brand new) were in perfect state, we had no problem whatsoever (even not a flat tyre although we did the Van Zyl’s Pass!), with each car equipped with 2 spare tyres, 2 petrol jerry cans, tents on the roof, full camping equipment, satellite phone, maps, … They picked us up at the airport, all administrative questions about insurance were swiftly handled as well when we took the cars as when we left them. Very professional and pleasant service.

We rent a 4x4 Toyota Hilux cars for 2 weeks trip in Namibia in August this year. the car was in perfect state so we felt that whatsoever difficult situations we would find along the road we can trust on the car to overcome it. They picked us up at the airport, and vice versa. Very professional and pleasant service.

We, a Dutch couple, rented a Toyota Hillux Double for 3 weeks in Oct 2017. We had a wonderful time! The car was great, very comfortable and had better tires than most car companies we saw on the way. Had no flat tires on our trip. The tent on top was very easiy to set up, within 10min we were ready to leave of sleep. Good cooking/ braai gear and had a very pleasant stay with the vehicle and tent! Two tumbs up for the service and truck!

We rented a 4x4 for 4 weeks in August/September. We had a great journey and we would recommend Melbic car rental. We traveled with a baby 4 months old and the owner of Melbic took care of arranging a baby car seat for us. The approach is very personal, very friendly people. We had no problems whatsoever.

Très bonne agence. Alida est venue nous chercher à l'aéroport. Présentation très complète du 4x4 et de la tente. Contrat très détaillé. Prix très honorable. Équipement au top. Tout est bien pensé. Réactif au mail. Important : prendre le téléphone satellite car très peu de réseau en cas de problème. Assurance pour 0€ de franchise (sauf quelques centaines d'euros pour négligence). Très sympa au retour. Je conseille Melbic. Si je retourne en Namibie, je recontacterai Melbic.

Jeroen,

We rented a 4X4 car at Melbic from 30 oktober till 13 november 2017. The 4 X 4 car was new, all equipments compleet! The best experience ever. Very good and professional company and a very kind owner.

Book at Melbic and you have a great time in Namibia. Have fun! And enjoy!

Carine
