“Evitate Maggiore”

Written on: 01/05/2016 by AliceUK (2 reviews written)

Pessima esperienza a Maggiore di Brindisi. Siamo stati obbligati a comprare l'opzione casco (chiedevano un deposito su cc di 2500 euro per una Panda!!!!), quindi abbiamo pagato il doppio! Il costumer service del broker auroeurope era molto stupito del fatto ma non poteva fare nulla. Il customer service di Maggiore è risultato essere INEFFICIENTE (mi hanno risposto dopo piu di 6 mesi) e INUTILE! State alla lontana da questo rental! Worse experience ever at Maggiore in Brindisi. We ended paying… Read Full Review

“Unbelievably bad customer service”

Written on: 20/04/2016 by ColinBradley (1 review written)

Rented a car from Maggiore in Ancona to drop off in Rome last August. On the last day woke up to find the windscreen cracked. When I returned the car I told them the front windscreen had cracked even though there had been no apparent incident to cause this. I was told that this was not covered by insurance. I had to fill in a damage form which I duly did. I was then charged €450 damage plus an additional €65 damaging processing fee. I have never had to pay anything like this for a… Read Full Review

“Choose another rental company”

Written on: 27/03/2016 by rlWarren380 (1 review written)

Booked a car from Bergamo airport. Collected the documentation from the airport office easily enough.... then told to go to the bus-stop! Went to the bus stop, and waited and waited and waited.... the website says 'on-airport' but it is a bus ride away - which is a pain when there are 4 of you with bags and skis.... Got to the rental carpark office... nobody there. Wandered around looking - nobody. Tried the other offices - just a shrug. Eventually, someone turned up, nonchalantly smoking a… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2016 by emmanouil887 (1 review written)

I' ve been there 9 o' clock, and there was this hilarious man, who was slower than my grandma...!! we waited 1 hour there, he was just talking italian andd laughing around with other italians..! we had rent the car for one day, so as u understand we were in a big hurry. We told this to him but he said he had to print some documents. Furthermore, we had to use a gps, and they just gave it to us, without any instructions, so we used the other half hour, into the traffic, trying to regulate it… Read Full Review

“Flat Tyres and daily charge for snow chains- in Winter!!”

Written on: 12/02/2016 by Fernandez1978 (1 review written)

Collected a car from Venice Airport in December with family of 4. No winter tyres but told they would provide chains for tyres (container in boot). Computer on board said two tyres were flat. When tyres were checked, ALL 4 were flat- Dangerous- I would think so but not them apparently when I informed them on handing car back. Returned the car and got invoiced for chains 33 Euros!!!! -they even advertise price of car rental on internet with chains included. When my agent argued that chains… Read Full Review

“Harrowing, life-threatening, intimidating”

Written on: 22/01/2016

8 Day Tuscany Fly & Drive with Milan, January 2016. I just returned and will warn all unsuspecting travelers to NEVER EVER book a trip with Gate 1 or rent a car from Maggiore. Dealing with Maggiore Car Rental was a nightmare, driving the car was life-threatening, and Gate 1 provided no assistance to us whatsoever. Our first car had mechanical trouble and had to be towed away from our hotel costing us an afternoon waiting for the flat bed truck. Plus we had just fueled up the car at the cost of… Read Full Review

“AVOID- No stars”

Written on: 14/01/2016

Please listen to everyone writing these reviews. The company is a terrible rip off. We booked a certain type of car and paid the deposit, only to get there for pick up and the car type wasn't available. We got down graded to the type below but didn't get any sort of discount! We then had to pay extra for insurance as their machine would accept any of our credit cards for the 1800 euro guarantee - yes 1800 euro, this wasn't because of our card limit, the cards were usable. The extra insurance… Read Full Review

We have just received the same extra charge of €42 with no explanation on a rental in October which was finished off with them signing that we did NOT owe anything. This is an unauthorized charge, we have contacted Eurocard.

“Do not choose Maggiore”

Written on: 27/12/2015 by MariaAngo (1 review written)

We rented a car at Maggiore sept 2015. Trappani Sicily. They forced us te buy an extra insuranace. Told us our deposit on the credit card was insufficient. This was not correct: we increased ouR deposit in advance. But this guy, a don-corleone-wanna-be just said: computer does not accept. So we were forced to take another insurance, extra costs €420. Afterwards they additionaly charged us for €170 damage, but there was no damage, not even at our mutual inspection!!! We protested and… Read Full Review

“extra charge of a day”

Written on: 16/11/2015

I delivered my rental at Pisa airport at the end of our holiday, early in the morning at 7.15 because of an early flight. The Maggiore office was still closed so I dropped the carkeys in the keybox in time according to the contract. On the invoice I received after several requests there was an extra charge for a day (100 euro!!) because they found the key in the afternoon while I was already home. Although I mailed them a foto with time stamp of the car from the spot where I dropped it as well… Read Full Review

There is no reason to use the name of organized crime that has destroyed the luves of thousands of families. The use of that word is Xenophobic and hateful and hurtful. I find your remarks distasteful. Your review may be fair but not your racial slurs.

“Maggiore car rental- warning !!! be ware !!!”

Written on: 02/10/2015 by liorkaz1 (1 review written)

We rented a Van from Maggiore car rental in Venice airport. Our smallest problem was waiting almost an hour in the airport to receive the car: a poor maintained 70,000km Peugeot Boxer. Two days after renting the car, the side door broke. We had to drive 40km from Garda to Verona to replace the car, with a similar bad maintained Van. 3 days later, at 17:30, when driving on the mountains from Garda to the Dolomites, 8 passengers with our suitcases, the car brakes failed and we had to stop on the… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for a compensation decision”

Written on: 30/09/2015 by PeterSuta (1 review written)

We hired a car in Naples in July. The car broke down 5 miles outside of naples airport. It was 37 degrees, we were stuck on a highway, we have a son aged 4, a daughter aged 18 months, and my wife was 6 months pregnant at the time. Maggiore charged me for the repairs and I was not at fault with the car breaking down. I did not have comprehensive insurance however I do not believe I should be liable for a fault to the car I hired when I am not responsible for it. The car hire was organised by… Read Full Review

“Rip off”

Written on: 28/09/2015 by hunterr (1 review written)

Car hire was fine but they tried to rip me off when I got home by making up spurious extra charges totalling over £100 and charging them to my credit card without warning. This has never happened to me with any other car hire company. AVOID!… Read Full Review

“Never rent a car here!”

Written on: 28/09/2015 by 300Crabtree (1 review written)

I booked a car with full insurance via the internet but my credit card was not accepted, so I was charged 18 euro extra for cash payment WITH THE SAME card! Arriving at the airport the full insurance was not a full insurance and I had to pay extra (nice sales trick !) Arriving at the car there were more dents and scratches than were stated on the paper and the full tank was not full. The people at the desk were very unfriendly and I had to force them to write down my findings. Contacted the… Read Full Review

“Unacceptable (Rubbish Customer Service)”

Written on: 25/09/2015 by Abagailq351 (1 review written)

Car rented out from Bergamo airport. Drove all the way to Garda (90 kms) and on arrival noticed that car tail gate was faulty (unable to lock). Phoned Maggiore at Bergamo immediately to get car changed at nearest office. Desk official (a certain Claudia) was arrogant and rude. Told me to phone Verona myself for a possible change. In the process gave me wrong Verona office number and refused to give me correct number (she said I had to wait as she was seeing to another customer). Found number… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague”

Written on: 22/09/2015 by Confidential101 (1 review written)

In brief, car broke down after 1 day. Maggiore refused to supply a replacement and insisted we had to make our own way back to the original hire point. We had no car and were stranded in our bungalow deep in the countryside for two days. It was an awful experience. I could not believe a car hire company could behave so badly. Our car brokers (Economy Car Hire, can't praise them enough) couldn't get a car from Maggiore either and ended up using another car hire firm! All in all an astonishing… Read Full Review

“Extra fees, car not available, no response to complaint”

Written on: 22/09/2015

Car hire from Milan station through Maggiore car hire. Car 3 hours late, not what we ordered. Ended up with tiny Smart car instead of 4 seater car (we had lots of luggage. Booked to drop car off at Bergamo Airport. Paid up front with Easyterra. Charged another £50 after the event fro the drop off fee. No response to 3 emails to Easyterra. No contact phone numbers so can't even phone them… Read Full Review

“Worst Car Rental Company Ever”

Written on: 21/09/2015 by MacDonaldpu336 (1 review written)

Maggiore are the WORST car rental company I have ever rented with and I would give them 0 stars if possible. We rented a car with them in Napoli, our car broke down as the engine failed, after a very expensive taxi trip back to Napoli airport and a missed flight, we were told that they would be in 'contact' with us. We are now back in the UK and I have being trying to contact them only to be met with RUDEST and most unhelpful staff I have ever come across. One of the staff in the Napoli branch… Read Full Review

“Rental from Pisa Airport”

Written on: 13/09/2015 by Devinq346 (1 review written)

Having read many bad reviews about Maggiore, we were not expecting a good service, but they could not have been more helpful. There were no queues at Pisa airport pick up, the staff were friendly and quick, and drop off back at the airport was informal and speedy. We didn't check the petrol tank level on pick up (will do this in future) but I suspect it was not totally full, as when we did check after only a couple of days, it was just above half full, but otherwise the car was good, clean… Read Full Review
