The car was spotless and in a great condition in general. The staff was brilliant, very helpful and polite. Explained everything from how and where to pick the car to the a way of handing it back. I had a small mishap by leaving the car with an open window in the parking bay in front of my residence. The member of public spotted that and called the Police. Police have protected car by towing it away. The Alamo company was perfectly fine by that and after recovering the car the next day from the Police, they've decided not to charge me anything extra. Would recommend Alamo and its crew to everyone, they are an excellent team who care about their good name and the name of their company. Definitely a breathtaking experience you won't see everyday!

5.6 Fair

May 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off super easy

Cons:

The insurance is way too high and cost more than the car rental itself! Also the car selection is always a mess because there is no standard rule for the car group or at least the front desk won’t really give options just go directly with his pickup option.

4.4 Mediocre

Cons:

Very slow at the pick up and given the wrong size car. Still waiting on the deposit to be paid back.

KAYAK

Pros:

Very friendly staff (Kevin Zeitler) at pick-up - Coffee supplied for four and everything explained. Again at drop-off same staff very helpful..

Cons:

The only disappointment was that quoted rental charge furnished on line did not include any damage cover to car (I would have been liable for up to €26,000). I accept that here is always a basic excess of €1.000/€2,000. Therefore I consider that your quoted rates are misleading.

Will not be hiring a vehicle through avis again. Hired 2 vehicles whilst in Europe and both times was overcharged. They have not sent me the rental documents for the final rental so I don't even know what I have been charged for. Very poor company not happy at all.

Pros:

Great guys at station

Cons:

Your staff needs to know if the car they are renting me has a CD player or not. Several times I've been told the car has on e, and it does not. Basically, creates a hassle and wasted time sink to switch out for another rental car that has one. Thx

Pros:

I rarely rent from Sixt since they came up expensive usually, but I had this great offer and it was not listed as Sixt but rather FLIZZR. The car war new and clean, No issues with picking up the car, very helpful customer service as I had experienced in former encounters with Sixt. Also the customer service representative hinted clearly on all and any pre-conditions (scratches, small dents), which I would have never been able to detect, since the rental place at the Cologne airport is rather a dark parking garage. I was even able to get an automatic for a small additional charge ($5 a day).

Cons:

The car, an Opel (Vauxhaul or General Motors), was supposed to be an automatic, but felt like a hybrid manual and had a very strange way to shift. Didn't shift smoothly, but I was stagnantly shifting, at least I did not have to shift manually.
