Overcrowded but relatively efficientPros:The person taking the car back noticed an incorrect extra charge and removed it. The drop-off process was quick and efficient once I got to the front of the line, and they called me a cab back to my hotel.Cons:The reception area was small and line was spilling out into the street. But it moved relatively quickly. Also, there weren't enough places on the street to leave cars, so several people were double parked.Reviewed 21 Apr. 2017

Mediocre Premium Class and Lots of Up-Selling at PickupPros:The car was fine mechanically. Very clean when we picked it up. Drop off was quick and easy.Cons:This was the least luxurious Premium class we've ever rented. No heated seats and the car had navigation but they had taken out the memory card so it didn't work. They didn't have our quoted rate at check-in and had to put in a discount to match the rate. Check-in took 40 minutes so they could try to up-sell us to Luxury class and CDW, etc.Reviewed 19 Apr. 2017

Good service but weird carPros:We picked up and a Citroen wagon at Edinburgh airport. The paperwork was reasonably fast for a car rental. When returning the car to the airport, a staff member promptly handled the return in the parking lot, handed me my receipt and on I went. I would rate the service as good to very good.Cons:The Citroen had an unusual instrument layout that was an ergonomic problem and a pain in the neck. The car was an automatic, but the shift lever was at the top and behind the steering wheel. To reach it was awkward and I frequently hit the windshield wiper stalk when reaching for the shift lever. Folding down the back seat to add storage was also difficult. It might have helped if the staff explained the layout of the car when I picked it up. Instead, I was given the keys and pointed to where I could pick up the car.Reviewed 24 Apr. 2016

Cons:Online booking doesn't indicate insurance coverage is compulsory. You are left with no choice to pay for the insurance when you pick up your car. This is totally unfair because if it is indicated in the website, that may change my choice.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2016

Difficulties with reservationPros:Making a reservation was easy, prices quoted looked great.Cons:I couldn't change the name on my reservation, and had to cancel the original and make a new reservation in order to accomplish this. My confirmation email was never sent to me, and the actual price at the counter appeared to be more than my reservation price. I also tried to reserve a midsize SUV, but ended up getting a Volkswagen golf (which is supposedly a size larger than what I reserved.Reviewed 10 Jun. 2018
