Everything went well
Everything went well. Order was lodged on line, a couple of emails followed indicating when the cash could be collected from the Perth airport. I turned up with the appropriate paperwork and the girl behind the counter pleasantly assisted me. She checked my documentation, credit card and handed over the cash in a complimentary 'purse'. Smooth and professional throughout. Thank you.Coral Mary Pepper
