Обращался только по поводу аренды внедорожников - два раза. Мне важно быть уверенным в автомобиле. Машины у ребят профессионально подготовленные на собственной ремонтной базе. Цены приемлемые, без стоимости пробега. Доброжелательная поддержка.

I rented a car with Travel Land 3 times and each time I was satisfied ! Artyom and Denis are nice and really helpful. The Nissan March and Mazda Demio I rented were reliable, easy to drive and not too expensive. I higly recommend this company for your car rental in Kyrgyzstan !
