Letter of the Month

On the 18 March 2014, Franz Horber wrote, “I would like to bring to everyone's attention, the excellent employee you have in Bob. When returning our rental car to Cape Town Airport branch, we accidentally returned the car to the collection point. We had unloaded all our suitcases but we couldn't leave the car there. At this point Bob, your star employee stepped forward and said "don't worry Sir, I will return it for you’. In my opinion he is an outstanding employee and a credit to your company.” Thank you for taking the time to write to us. In our opinion, Bob is definitely worthy of the Letter of the Month award!
