KAYAK

Cons:

I ordered the car rental for Gronigen Airport at a fee of £60. Kayak booking system then failed to confirm car rental at airport. Which required me to catch a taxi into the city at a cost of £40. Furthermore, I did not receive a booking confirmation for 7 days which also failed to precisely specify the car hire location as confirmed by Sixt. What originally had been a good deal ended up being more expensive, time consuming and hassle than had I taken the most expensive option. I will not again use Kayak to book car hire.
