Johannesburg, Pomona, Friday, 9 MARCH 2012 – First Car Rental wishes to inform all present, past and future customers that Velvet Sky is our airline partner, and that our partnership agreement is the only association we have with Velvet Sky. The low cost airline’s current predicament does not affect First Car Rental or CMH operations and we are carrying on as per usual.

We are honouring all First Car Rental bookings made via the Velvet Sky website. Customers are able to amend or cancel bookings by means of the links provided on their voucher confirmation or via our Call CentreWe will also refund prepaid rentals done via the Velvet Sky website due to flight delays and/or cancellations.

First Car Rental will not penalise customers for cancellations. Payments will be refunded in full should customers wish to cancel pre-paid reservations since operational issues were announced by the airline on 20 February 2012.
