Great car at a great price, helpful friendly staff. A great hire car company.

Wij hadden een peugeot 308 SW besteld en ter plaatse kregen we te horen dat we een VW I bus 100 % elektrisch kregen. We schrokken in de eerste plaats omdat we nog nooit elektrisch gereden hadden en geen ander model kregen. Gelukkig is Corsica heel goed voorzien van laadpunten en hebben we genoten van onze ritjes door het mooie Corse.

I'd recommend to read the Google reviews. The staff should be replaced asap. "Rude and arrogant" are the nicer descriptions....

The car was good However, we were charged 50€ more with no explanation. Hertz was not able to explain why this extra cost is applied when asked. The car rented to us without prior cleaning

When we picked up the car we specifically asked if we needed to fill up the gas tank and the representative at the desk said no. We also used google translate to make sure our communication was understood correctly. When we dropped off the car the representative said we needed to fill the car up with gas when dropping off. We did not receive a written or emailed contract stating that we needed to fill up. We were charged an exorbitant amount without prior warning. This was a horrible experience. I would like to be credited for this outrageous charge.

The local rental office did not accepted the reservation we made with Priceline/Kayak. Instead they offered a more expensive contract. Very upsetting.

1.9 Poor

Aug. 2021

KAYAK
The price indicated on Kayak and Priceline is significantly different from the price you will have to pay at the counter. Car was clean, but please remember to take pictures of every scratch as their own way of keeping track is rather shady and ambiguous.
