2.0 MediocreMay 18 2022
I had a horrible experience. The first thing you need to know is that easirent is no where near the airport. All other major carriers are. It was about a ten minute wait for the van, then another 10 minutes to the location. The rental office is a sketchy trailer with a single person working the desk. I was third in line and waited 30 minutes, only to be told my car was given away. I will admit I was 45 minutes late to pick up the car. They gave me a choice to rent a manual, which I could not do. I then scrambled, found a car on Enterprise ($400 more), and had them drive me back to the airport. All told: I lost an hour plus, missed a distillery tour ($100), and had one of the most frustrating experiences while traveling. In sum, pay the extra money, go to a known carrier on the airport premises.

I was overcharged on the rental. Easirent did not release car to me until I paid more than the price I was quoted by Kayak (via Priceline). I am disputing this overcharge. Please contact me regarding how to get this refund. My email is Faith.Pettis@PacificaLawGroup.com

Service was great, very friendly staff and quick check in and check out… wish they had a better car park as entering and exiting was very bunny and pothole filled… a larger sign would help location accuracy, and if the car park was paved then it would look much more inviting and appealing.

Cancelled due to price being effectively doubled when CDW insurance was to be applied. Also, zero help and flexibility on pick up time
8.0 ExcellentApr 5 2022
Liked- Used Easirent many times. They have never tried to extort or rob me. Avis/Budget are very bad for this. People are nice and polite. The process is straight forward. Pick-up/drop-off is quick and easy. Could have been better- The outside of the car had a lot of scratches but this was listed when we collected and they didn't try to get extra revenue when we dropped it off. Tyre level warning light on, couldn't reset even after putting air in. Interior was dirty, bought some cleaner and a cloth fixed that. The price was high, but this was due to my credit card expired so had to use my debit card. Credit card arrived 2 days into the rental :(
2.0 MediocreApr 5 2022
The car rental was was not completed. I booked through a third party broker Priceline via Kayak) and upon arrival at the Easirent depot in Glasgow was told that because I had booked through a third party, the booking would only be honoured if I took out additional insurance to reduce the collision damage waiver to £1500. As I have a separate "car insurance excess" policy this would not be necessary. The attendant at the desk then asked me to prove I had such a policy so I took out my phone and showed him the policy certificate which showed that the policy covered damages up to £50,000. He then told me that Easirent only accept policies that cover damages up to £60,000. I found this statement bizarre given that even without the additional payment he was demanding (which would have nearly doubled the original quoted cost of the car hire), I would only have been liable to the "non-insured" part of the car up to a maximum of £2500 which would have been taken from my credit card at the beginning of the rental period. As I was unwilling to agree to the extra payment I returned to the airport and the other car rental desks and made alternative arrangements. There is nothing in the T&Cs that state that this extra payment is Easirent policy but the attendant stated that there were. In retrospect I should have asked him to show them to me but by that point, and having observed the "up-selling" tactics that were being used on other customers ahead of me in the queue I had decided that it was probably best to use a more reputable car hire company than Easirent. My conclusion was that f they were going to be like that at the outset of the trip, what tricks would they pull upon the return of the car to gauge even more from the agreement. In short, on this evidence, I would not use Easirent again. Most of the car rental broker website show them to have the cheapest on-line quotes but the business model is one of up-selling add-ons to the customer upon arrival when most travelers are stressed and most likely to cave in to the pressure brought to bear by the person at the desk.
2.0 MediocreApr 4 2022
The Glasgow site is full of potholes. The exterior of the car was dirty. I was charged £30.00 more for the hire than my original invoice with no explanation. I will try not to use this company again.
10.0 ExcellentApr 2 2022
It's off airport property but the pick up and drop offs were on time and easy.
2.0 MediocreMar 31 2022
Took me nearly 2 hours to find the office. Was very disappointed to find out they wanted to block GBP1500 on my credit card and then charge additional GBP 150 for Collision damage waiver for a 1 week hire. The car was advertised at $300 when I booked it on line. This was not clear or advised when I booked the car on line. I did not take the car.

Being charged 1400£ for the tiniest tire tread tearComfortable new car that was reliable. But...Upon return they point out a tiny tear in the drivers side tire. I'm talking 1cm deep and 3cm wide, in the tread (not side wall). Was told it would be a discussion but by the time I got off my flight home I had been charged $2000CAD and was only left a 30 second voicemail. Unbelievable.

Debit card use challengesWhen you use a debit card you have to provide two recent utility bills or other prrof of address. That can be challenging for someone from abroad. Was resolved through use of internet and electronic bills, but caused a delay.

It took us 90 minutes to get the car. There were only two people in front of us in line, but there was only one person working and for some reason it took him a very long time to process them. Then the car wasn't even on the lot and we had to track him down. The worker was very nice and helpful and I don't think it was his fault.

Steven at pickup was great and very helpful. He did not try a hard upsell, which has often happened to me. At drop off, Kristian was wonderful; there was a small bit of damage and he was comforting and helpful. He was very clear about the process.When we had to change the time of pickup because the airline cancelled our early flight it was very difficult to work it out; office hours were sketchy (no 24/7 service from Sixt on the phone) and the communication among the staff seemed less than perfectly effective. In the end it worked out though

First time hirerThe friendly, helpful manager and staff made the entire process painless. I was shown round the car and advised on its controls etc. before driving off. Quick pick up and return. I was completely satisfied with the car's condition and, as suggested, it was perfect for my needs. I'll definitely use the Glasgow office again, and would recommend them with out reserve.The only issue with the car (a Jaguar xe) was the low roof as I, and a passenger, banged our heads exiting the car.

They can decide based on an in person questionnaire whether to rent you a car or not. I was stuck in another country scrambling for 2 hours trying to find another rental cat because the clerk ay the desk decided not to rent me three car because I'd never driven there before. They denied me a refund for the rental and are fighting the chargeback from my credit card company.

4.0 OkayNov 26 2017
Ripped off again in Scotland.I was ripped off again. The second time this has happened to me in Glasgow, UK. At the end of the rental, I was charged for scratches on the wheel rim which I did not cause. All of the wheels had scrapes and scratches on them. The person checking me in only looked at ONE rim and pointed out several scratches which he said "looked new". They charged me GBP 120.00 for the scratches, and a GBP 55.00 fee for "damage processing". How ridiculous. I am going to contest these charges, because I did not drive up on curbs or otherwise damage this rim. I only parked in the hotel parking lot and at the COSTCO parking lot, both of which had parking slots and no curbs.
8.0 ExcellentOct 9 2017
The car itself was great.The site says the office is in the terminal. It was not. Just a Hirt walk. But still misleading. The wait to pick up the car was long. It cost way more than the original quote. And the directions for drop off were easily missed. I found it more by luck than by following the roadside directions.

I called Hertz 2x before I picked up the car, the 1st time to let them know that my flight was delayed 12 hours, and I was told they would still have my car available. The 2nd time I called to extend my rental a day, and they were very helpful, and extended the reservation at very little cost.Economy Car was not held for me, despite me having called beforehand to confirm it would be. No real effort was made to provide a smaller car when I expressed concern over the huge replacement vehicle I was given (Scotland has tiny roads and they gave me a Volkswagon Caddy). No personnel at drop-off

The staff member who helped me with pickup was so kind and helpful! I really appreciate her patience. (I think her name was Anne, but I don't remember.) Thank you for the free upgrade!!!I wish the Oxford office had been open when I arrived. I felt a little nervous leaving the car.
9.6 ExcellentMay 12 2019
The car, a brand we had never even heard of (a Seat Leon), was comfortable, compact, thoughtfully designed, quiet, and a pleasure to drive.They could have given us a manual or instructions on the Infotainment system. It was not easy to work out what all the functions were and how to use them, and we didn't even find the CD player (in the glove compartment) until near the end of our trip.

Not as AdvertisedI chose this company because it was listed as at the terminal. It wasn't. I had to call them three times to be picked up. It took 45 minutes after discovering they weren't at the airport. No floor mats and they were going to charge a cleaning fee if the carpets weren't clean upon return. It was bloody raining all week. That's why you have floor mats.

Without doubt the worst car hire company I’ve ever dealt with. Ignorant people who plainly set out to take money from me. Lied about condition of the vehicle! Would not check the car over with me when I pointed there was a lot more damage than they said, including damage to a wheel. And on returning the car they tried to blame me for the very same wheel being damaged and now there was a blister on that tyre. Considering they service an international airport there hours don’t suit everyone and you will need to return the car to suit their schedule which means booking a hotel at Glasgow airport if you have an early flight next day. But from start to finish it was terrible. To the point I’d use public transport before I’d use them again. Now I need to deal with them not stealing money from my credit card as I refused to sign their paperwork admitting I damaged their car. Even though I have pictures to back me up. So beyond not happy.
1.9 HorribleJul 24 2021
If this really mattered someone would call me. Scott Thiessen 206 686-7474. Covid -19 caused me to cancel. Icelandic air canceled my into Scotland. I notified Green Motion and Car Rentals .com ahead of time and tried to contact kayak and Expedia by phone and website to no avail—please credit my money back because I canceled and never used a car
6.0 GoodMay 11 2021
Drop off was super easy. The person that handled the drop off/shuttle was super friendly and nice. They also picked us up from the airport, which is like a 2 minute drive so that was cool too. -The car was amazing! Massage drivers seat and a lot of fun features that I've never seen before.- Worth keeping in mind when looking around that you'll have to put down an above average deposit if you choose to go with your own credit card insurance (over 2,500gbp). If you choose to go with one of their options for insurance it will add a couple hundred to your bill. So if you think this is the more inexpensive option, you may be wrong with all the extras you'll have to get. -Make sure on pick up to take pictures of everything (even scratches and dents under 4cm or whatever they suggest) We were asked on drop off if we had a picture of a dent that we were told we didn't have to document on pickup. Luckily we had figured as much and had video/pics of it. -They had the tank filled just over half which I thought was odd, usually rental cars start with a full tank but that could just be my preference.

Nothing. I did not get the car at all. I paid $203 for full rental and they tried to charge me 700 pounds on pick up and charge more costs. Awful experience and awful car rental company. I eventually walked away from the car rental due to what they were trying to charge me in addition, when clearly the confirmation said 0 due at pick up.Stay away from Green Motion Car Rental at all costs. Awful experience, awful customer service. Downright lies spewed at pick up. Saying I needed a passport to rent car, but would waive requirement if I paid 300 pounds. Would not accept my credit card, but would take my Debit card for an extra charge per day. Very rude to me when all of this was questioned saying it was in the small print of their terms. Please remove this car rental company from your advertising.
4.8 OkayOct 29 2019
Staff was helpful, but found many other issues having going though a 3rd party for reservation, requiring a very high hold on our CC.They gave me a truck instead of the car I reserved, given this when the tail gate support came off, I got charged for the dysfunction with the tailgate.

Top tips for renting a car in Glasgow

  • Being Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow has really great public transportation which includes both buses and a subway system. However, you’ll appreciate having a rental car to get to the rural areas and countryside to enjoy towns like Loch Lomond, Houston (known for its brewing companies), and Stirling (a great place for history buffs).
  • Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland. Renting a car from the Glasgow Airport is both easy and convenient. The rental car center is a short walk from both the main terminal and terminal 2. With over seven rental companies to choose from, you can rent everything from a compact car to an SUV or luxury vehicle for your business trip or vacation.
  • Along with getting used to driving on the left side of the road, you should be aware of bus lanes when driving in Glasgow and other cities in Scotland. Watch for designated bus lane markings and note that these lanes are designated for buses only during certain hours of the day. Note that cameras monitor the bus lanes looking for law breakers.
  • When driving around Glasgow, you’ll find that it gets busiest between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., and in the early morning from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. it can be just as congested. During these hours you’ll especially want to avoid driving around the city center. Additionally, you’ll want to stay off of the City Bypass and highway M8. Watch the news for traffic reports regarding accidents and construction projects for specific updates.
