Pros:Nothing good.Cons:Staff are not friendly and slow in response, the operating hour is very short during weekend and holiday, that make car return become extremely difficult. Staff did not explain the ZTL thing at all, luckily we did research ourselves in advance, otherwise it's very high chance to get fine in Italy.Reviewed 22 Apr. 2019

Cons:Many of Italy's cities have restrictions about areas where you can drive within the city. Violating these rules can lead to serious fines. Therefore, as international traveler,s we would have appreciated more information from our car rental agency- with maps, for example, that would have let us know about the exact areas where we are allowed to drive or not. We did not get this information and felt like sitting ducks for fines. Also, we were rather stressed that we might be breaking rules without really knowing that we were doing so.Reviewed 17 Oct. 2016

Site allowed reservation at closing timePros:Price was greatCons:I specifically needed to pick up a car near the train station in Florence rather than the airport, so I searched a few sites and Kayak finally had one in the right area for a great price. My reservation was at 6pm except the store closed right at 6pm (when I showed up exactly on time). Then the automatic help system was not useful calling from Italy and I couldn’t actual reach a person who could help me. If I had known that the store closed right at 6pm, I would have known that I couldn’t have gotten there early and not made the reservation.Reviewed 2 Jun. 2018

Worst Car Rental Experience Ever!Pros:Once all of the hassle was through and I was finally able to speak with the manager, he was able to find a solution for me. While it was not what I ordered and didn't not fulfill all of my needs, it got me to my destination.Cons:I arrived at the Budget rental office for my scheduled 9am appointment. I had to take a number and wait. I had number 96 and they were on 80 when I arrived. I didn't think it would take that long, but soon I realized each number took between 15 to 30 minutes and they only had two people working the counter. After two and a half hours of waiting, my number was called. I went up and started the process. I had reserved an automatic car in the range of what they called "luxury." I was told in order to pick up this car, I would need to give two credit cards with my name on them, but I only travel with one. I was never told that this was required (I have triple checked everything they sent me). So I was basically out of luck. They had no other car available for me. After another 15 minutes of waiting, the worker found a manual car for me. I wanted to accept, but this was not worth the hassle of driving the city streets of Florence. I then found the manager in the garage and explained the situation. He actually wanted to find a solution for me. It took him a little time, but he was able to find a car for me. Not what I ordered, but it worked. In the end, I had lost over three hours of my day that was meant to be spent visiting wineries in Tuscany. And I was not alone with this. Most of the other people renting cars had two to three hours waits, even if they had a reservation. I will never again rent a car from Budget or Avis, even if the price is better.Reviewed 20 Sep. 2016

Pros:Staff here was more helpful than Milan. At Florence out Reserved luxury class of vehicle was not available but they offered a higher class vs. being downgraded & given a manual shifter by Budget in Milan the prior week.Cons:Faster service would be nice - wait was < 30 min vs. 3+ hrs experience in Milan even with a reservation.Reviewed 28 Jul. 2019

Rental in Florence, ItalyPros:Everything about the experience was great other than there are very long lines at the office. We probably were in the office for almost an hour the day we picked up our car. Otherwise the experience was great and we would highly recommend!Reviewed 26 May 2018

Pros:Dropping it back off.Cons:I could have gotten the car i reserved (Mercedes A class or similar) or a nicer one, rather than a Fiat 500 which was awful, dented and scratched, and didn’t even have a rear windshield wiper.Reviewed 11 Sep. 2019

Good car, good service, but upsell took timePros:Local team was professional and efficient, car was good, overall experience was good.Cons:At pick-up, there were several up-sell attempts, additional drivers, additional insurance, etc... added time to picking up the vehicle and I had already turned down those options when I booked the car.Reviewed 27 Aug. 2018

Pros:Clean car easy drop offCons:I made the res but my husband went to get the car because I broke my arm right before our trip. They said they needed to cancel my res completely and make a new res, charged us 340 euro for a smaller cheaper car instead of my original 150$.Reviewed 25 Jun. 2018

Reserved convertible and got a suv???Pros:Easy pick up, the car was clean and no damage.Cons:Reserved a convertible and got a Jeep, driving a Jeep in Europe let alone Italy is extremely tough. Plus there was a convertible next to the Jeep we were taking and they said they’re PLATINUM member was taking it. On top of all that, they didn’t reduce the price or anything like that. Will be contacting my credit card to get money back.Reviewed 13 Jun. 2018
