Cons: was lured in by low online rate but then aggressively upsold into insurance that I didn't need, such that I ended up paying three times the amount I was originally quoted. I would not use them again.

After long wait at counter, company would not honor arranged price
Cons: Company required purchase of insurance which would more than double rental price. Declined to rent and rented instead from National at adjacent counter with no problems and lower price. Will not rent from Europcar again. Was fortunate to find and available car, in same class, at a good price during holiday week..

Mixed, but generally good.
Pros: Nice clean cars and helpful staff.
Cons: Had to wait 45 min for pickup, and bill was £20 more than it should have been - but they were quick to address when I pointed it out.

Cons: They double charged me for insurance. I paid you for insurance and then they told me they did not recognize it, and they wouldnt give me the car unless I bought theirs. Their insurance cost two times more than the whole rental.

Avoid this company-Big Scam
Cons: The hidden charges and fraudulent practices
Jul 5 2017
Pros: The car itself was decent, full size + luxury as described (although Volvo not Mercedes). No sign of any Mercs on the lot either, so not sure if they actually have any.
Cons: The worst service EVER upon pick up from Easirent. No routine shuttle bus from airport, apparently you have to phone for a pick up but no contact number was given. Jumped in a cab to rental center but it has moved & Kayak has incorrect address. Eventually arranged pick up, took 1 hr 30 mins for the shuttle bus to arrive after I managed to speak to them + everyone was totally unapologetic and basically complaining about how hard they were working. There were 2 customers ahead of me in the queue when I finally arrived at rental center but it took an hour to process them + me. The woman in front of me was in tears because of the standard "you need to take our premium insurance" line which left her an additional $600 out of pocket. Of course, I got gouged as well an additional $100... "we cannot let you take this car without additional insurance, you're not legal on the road without it" despite the fact my US credit card covers this and I don't have a problem elsewhere. Companies like this should NOT be in business, and thankfully the service is so bad that they won't be for long, there is no way they can survive when they are so appallingly bad.
Cons: Hertz refused to release the car at the price quoted by Kayak. Even though I had pre-paid the insurance.
I hired a car from Avis at a lot less.
Also it seems I am unable to reclaim the pre-paid insurance.

Quick & Easy
Pros: Attendant came right over. Great attitude considering it was before 7 am on a Saturday. No hassles on the turn in checklist. Asked which airline I was flying - told me the terminal - and which shuttle bus to board. That's service !

Pros: Dropoff was very smooth.

Why is car rental at British airports so awful?
Pros: Car was fine, but lacked any frills.
Cons: Heathrow and Manchester seem designed to give the worst possible first impression of the country, and the car rental facilities are the worst of the worst. Have the designers never traveled to a half-decent airport in the US, Asia or Europe? Poor signage (also at Gatwick); lousy shuttles; complacent service by people who clearly don't care. This trip was capped by a ridiculous charge for an invisible "dent". The car rental has a veneer of efficiency (e.g. Electronic check-in), but this was a poor and sloppy experience through-and-through.
