The place is a total scam. PLEASE be very careful if you deal with them, especially at the moment of signing where they will try to distract you In Order to lock you into some crazy extras. Do yourself a favor and bring your business somewhere else. Feel free to read their google reviews and you will see dozens of clients like me that were duped by a very dishonest sales team.Reviewed 1 Jun. 2024

Need to know exactly what car is allocated before the paperwork. Clarify and itemise all types of insurance cover being offered and get agreement from the customer. Refrain from upselling to another category of carReviewed 30 May 2024

Everything was great from start to finish. We got a nice new SUV as requested, drop and pickup were easy and we got our $250 deposit back with no issues a few days later. Credit card was enough for insurance and we were warned about the risk of not getting additional insurance but not forced to actually take it. Overall amazing experience!Reviewed 28 Mar. 2024

Even though we had coverage from a 3rd part insurance provider they insisted that we left with their basic cover package at $40 extra a day. I sent a few emails and they removed the charge 48hours later and refunded for the 2 days.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2023

Pros:Kayak and carrentals were providing incomplete information about car rental process and cost. Quotation was given without insurance cost which once added inflated the overall cost to become very expensive and noncompetitive. This may be good for US residents with the right credit card.Cons:You must provide clear guidance on insurance issue and whether it is included or not. I paid four times the quoted price for half the period and my main concern was to return the vehicle ASAP rather than getting on with my trip. The trick of small print was not expected from big providers like you.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2019

Pros:Pick-up was slow; they could have done with more staff. The ones who were there coped very well. The duty manager kept us all informed as to the progress of the queue, which was much appreciated. Dorota (Dorothy) checked me in and provided excellent customer service.Cons:See above.Reviewed 2 Mar. 2019

Plan for some major extra costsPros:The car was clean and ran well, and they were very friendly on pickup and drop off.Cons:Your Canadian insurance is not applicable in Europe. Only in North America. Well, remember when you get extra insurance in Canada, and it’s $10 a day? Not in Europe. The first quote from the attendant was 42 pounds a day (that’s $70 CAD!!!). Yes. A day. When we started asking questions, it got better. Roadside assistance removed. 12 pounds. Our $200 quote for a rental turned into $550. However, all said and done, they treated us well, and the car was clean and comfortable (although check for a spare - we had none). When we talked to our friends who rented in Ireland, they made all the arrangements to rent from Canada, and the cost was identical. So the warning is, the cost you see is for the rental. Multiply it by 150 to 200% for the real cost.Reviewed 6 Aug. 2018

Deceptive. Will rip you offPros:The car was clean. That's about it. Everything else is wrong with this agency.Cons:They don't advertise they will force you to buy insurance at 20 pounds a day or you won't be able to take the car! In addition, when you pay with a non-UK credit card (which of course accepts pounds) they will convert themselves to pound sterling and rob another 3.5% of the total. Avoid them if you have the chance.Reviewed 22 Mar. 2017
