10.0 ExcellentApr 1 2019
The staff member upon pick-up and drop-off was extremely helpful and kind. He took the time to make sure I knew all the features of the car and that I understood any differences from a typical car I might drive in the US. I was very pleased with the service I received.N/a

6.8 GoodMay 1 2019
They state up front that there is a 10 euro fee for cars returned with extremely dirty interior. I returned a car with some dirt on the driver floor mat, nothing anywhere else. That qualified as extremely dirty.

We were upgraded to a larger, diesel car to save us some gas moneyWe were upgraded to a larger car that made me nervous on the very narrow, winding roads.

2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
It was not possible to rent a car through them. Because they confirmed that the car booked is not possible to rent with debit card. Then they ensured that they have other cars that can be rented with debit card, but when we asked what offers they have, they did not respond. Whereas we easily rented a car through ANZ with a debit card.

4.4 OkayJun 18 2019
It wasn’t clear to me that the pickup/drop off are not at the airport and you have to get a minibus to take you there. Also they didn’t come to meet me at the allotted time - they came an hour later. It ended up taking two hours to hire a car - not good enough when I only hired for three days.
