Cons:

The office cancelled my reservation without calling me, and claimed they called me. It’s absurd that I was able to make one even though they claimed no cars were available.

Pros:

Great price, car was extremely clean, and although larger than what we requested it got very good gas mileage.

Cons:

The surcharge for taking the car to France (while very minimal 5 Euro/day) seemed arbitrary.

2.0 Poor

May 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was friendly.

Cons:

Car was not ready. We had to wait 5 hours for the car. Most of the communication with the branch had to be initiated by us. We were left with a feeling that we were mislead by the staff and definitely given low priority. Upon returning car, they had no one available to return us to train station. They finally offered to call a cab for us. My wife demanded a credit on the bill for the cab ride which was rellunctantly tendered. As usual with Interprise, their fuel tank policy is a nuisance.

Station in Freiburg did not have the car I requested and charged me extra to take one of a different class. At the return station in Berlin I was given no confirmation of receipt of the vehicle for three days and was illegitimately charged for an extra day of rental.

The pick-up time was able to be set for 1pm despite the car rental agency being closed from 12-2pm and we could only collect our car after 2pm. We had selected a pick-up time of 1pm because the car rental agency was supposed to be opened from 8am-2pm only. Other than that, the process was smooth.

I prepaid for an automatic car and there was no automatic car for me at pickup. They gave it away to someone else. So now I have paid for a car I never drove. I need my money back. I had to rent from Europcar.
