“Maggiore Bari Car Rental”

Written on: 31/10/2014 by lsWatkins212 (1 review written)

We have to wait 1,5 hours to getting "allmost" a rental car. And there was only 4 customers in front of us. The staff was most of the time talking on the phone with other staff at the parking place outside and with staff coming in. On the counters of the other companies they need 7 minutes per customer. When I try to get my car the staff was very harshly. I try all my 3 Creditcards which (I double check it at home) was moneywise all able to fit the caution. But they say it was not working. And… Read Full Review

“AVOID THIS COMPANY!”

Written on: 29/10/2014 by FelixH (1 review written)

Unhelpful and unfriendly staff. We had to an additional insurance otherwise we would have had to leave a 1800 Euro guarantee although we already paid for that insurance in Germany. They do not care about the customer. They are only interested in making some extra money! Stay away from them! Billiger-mietwagen.de please drop this company! You can't rust them! AVOID MAGGIORE CAR RENTAL!… Read Full Review

“The worse company !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by mzMcLain163 (1 review written)

I had the worse experience in my life with Maggiore Rent in Italy. The car was not ready in time for which we reserved it and paid in advance. After waiting, we were told to sign a contract. We had to wait another 35 minutes to get the car that had only about 20% of the tank full. When we gave it back, we were charged an extra full day the month after for not having put enough fuel in the tank (we did add more) and to have brought it back 30 minutes too late from the time we signed the… Read Full Review

“Be careful with maggiore Catania”

Written on: 15/10/2014

We got the car at Catania airport at midnight. Nobody was there and there was no light. It seemed the car was ok. When we returned it, they told us we would have to pay for a bump on the floor of the vehicle. But we have not caused a bump and it was not even visible to us. Nevertheless maggiore has charged euro 300 to our credit card… Read Full Review

“Avoid this company”

Written on: 12/10/2014 by Harrisonir321 (1 review written)

Sorry for my poor english, i'm french ;-)). I needed a car one week (check-in Palermo, Check-out Trapani). Among other offerings, the company "Maggiore" had the most attractive price. On the check-in, they only give me the keys of the car and indicate a park-number on the parking without any explanation. I make by myself a inspection before leaving and i found a damage not reported on the contract: a small scratch on the right rear bumper. I ask an employee who doesn't want to add it to the… Read Full Review

“Unhelpful!!!!!!!”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by 100McKenna (1 review written)

We had a car booked to travel around Italy, when we arrive at Rome Training Station we had to wait 20+ minutes because the sales assistant was slow! When we were finally served he refused to let us have the car because we didn't have a credit card, the information we had (from easycar.com) said we needed the bank card paid that was used to pay (which was a debit). I found the sales assistant rude and unhelpful, he clearly didn't care. We called easycar and they refunded us the full amount for… Read Full Review

Rented a car from Maggiore at Treviso Airport in July.Car was dirty, not cleaned out.

“Naples Aug 2014”

Written on: 18/09/2014

We hired a Citroen Picasso from Naples Airport. I was dubious booking with Maggiore as I had read some reviews that slated the service, I chose them purely because of cost - they were over half the price of the well known car hire companies. Well - I couldn't have been happier. The gentleman on the desk when we arrived gave us a discounted rate - we had a brand new very clean Picasso, for 5 persons. Car was great during out 2 1/2 week stay, un limited mileage meant we were able to do lots of… Read Full Review

“Rental robbery Maggiore!”

Written on: 18/09/2014 by AyaanRobles (1 review written)

Apparently due to being late delivering back my rental car by 30 minutes due to traffic jam I was charged €100. At no time was this communicated by the representative or that they had a policy of doing this. The total charge for 10 days car hire was £256. I feel this was disproportionate, unfair and disappointingly disrespectful to me their client. Seems like Maggiore is just out to make a quick buck and not look after there customers, lack of information and bad communication. The worst… Read Full Review

I had exactly the same issue. Rented a car at Pisa for 10 days for 400 canadian dollars. I was charged 172 canadian dollars for returning the car 1 hour late. The worse is that I was only informed by email 3 days after I left Italy. Pure Robbery

Written on: 15/09/2014 by MartinStev (1 review written)

Hired a mid sized car for 2 weeks from them based on good price and their so called "fair fuel policy". Car rental was trouble free until return day. Fully filled car at petrol station 100m from car hire return car park. Returned car was inspected by Maggiore rep who told us all was okay. Upon return home we had an invoice for re-fueling the car! 6 liters of fuel, that's 12% empty. Despite having a return slip that shows the car being 100% full! Contacting them about the issue took 8 days… Read Full Review

“Do not hire a car from this company”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by Middleton500 (1 review written)

Booked a car from Bergamo airport. Arrived 1hour 45 minutes later than I had indicated. Was informed the car had been re-hired because I had not phoned to say I was delayed. The car was pre-paid so my view is that it should have remained available to me. Staff were very rude;unhelpful and couldn't care less. Not able to offer me any car-we were left stuck.DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY-THEY ARE NOT RELIABLE,HAVE NO CONCEPT OF CUSTOMER SERVICE AND DESERVE TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS… Read Full Review

“Avoid, avoid, avoid”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by TimRCR (3 reviews written)

We picked up the car and it was filthy on the outside and clean inside. We dropped it off 1 week later at Catania airport and it was still filthy on the outside but had some sand inside - as would be expected for a family holiday at the beach. Ver very dirt said the man - we must pay extra for it to be special clean. He would not say how much it would cost but tried to assure me that it would not be hundreds of euros. He was unpleasant and a little threatening. Of course all it needs is a… Read Full Review

“Risk of unfair extra costs”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by ixZiegler196 (1 review written)

@Brindisi airport, 8 days rent. Standard check in procedure with a couple of good points: no queue, no hard selling of extra insurance, quick procedure. Good car, Fiat 500L, one segment higher than my choice. Very bad experience at car return: unpleasant employees and i was asked for 150€ extra to wash the car because there was too much sand in there. I drove to the nearest Oil Station and with 1€ (one Euro, yes...) it was ok. … Read Full Review

The service at Pisa was OK, but there seemed to some issue over the fact that we'd taken out separate insurance. No one to check car on return, a worry! Then a charge on our credit card 3 months later. Won't be using Maggiore again… Read Full Review
