Cons: I don't know why but the price was duble.
Pros: No issue with the car and we drove about 850 miles
Cons: Waited in line for 30 minutes to pick up the car Inside front windshield was not cleaned well before pickup
Plan for some major extra costs
Pros: The car was clean and ran well, and they were very friendly on pickup and drop off.
Cons: Your Canadian insurance is not applicable in Europe. Only in North America. Well, remember when you get extra insurance in Canada, and it’s $10 a day? Not in Europe. The first quote from the attendant was 42 pounds a day (that’s $70 CAD!!!). Yes. A day. When we started asking questions, it got better. Roadside assistance removed. 12 pounds. Our $200 quote for a rental turned into $550. However, all said and done, they treated us well, and the car was clean and comfortable (although check for a spare - we had none). When we talked to our friends who rented in Ireland, they made all the arrangements to rent from Canada, and the cost was identical. So the warning is, the cost you see is for the rental. Multiply it by 150 to 200% for the real cost.
Deceptive. Will rip you off
Pros: The car was clean. That's about it. Everything else is wrong with this agency.
Cons: They don't advertise they will force you to buy insurance at 20 pounds a day or you won't be able to take the car! In addition, when you pay with a non-UK credit card (which of course accepts pounds) they will convert themselves to pound sterling and rob another 3.5% of the total. Avoid them if you have the chance.
Theft insurance is mandatory, and different than c
Pros: The car was fine. The folks in the car lot were friendly.
Cons: During check-in, they told me I needed to either pay 10 pounds a day for theft insurance, or allow them to put 1,000 pounds on my car for deductible. They told me it was separate and different than coverage from my insurance provided by my airline credit card. It seemed wrong, but I was in a hurry. I have never paid "theft" insurance on a car rented in the UK, or anywhere else in Europe.
