“Visit from London-LA”

Written on: 06/02/2016 by DarionKent (1 review written)

I was very pleased to find the great price online before my trip to LA from London. I pre-paid for the rental and was pleasantly surprised that the que at LAX was quick. When checking in with Alamo, they said they couldn't give me the online pre-paid price as my driver's license was Canadian, even though I live in the UK. This was unexpected and ended up costing me an additional $399.00 on top of what I had already pre-paid online. I was not happy with that as that was an unexpected expense to… Read Full Review

“Disappointed”

Written on: 04/02/2016 by CristianLondon (1 review written)

I've used Autoeurope to hire a car in Poprad, Slovakia. By mistake I've picked up the wrong airport, for which I will take all the blame. What happen afterwards is a different story. It was 17.00PM local time, and Autoeurope said first they will get the car to me in 1 hour ( it was just 70km away), at 18.00 they said it will take another 2 hours. At 20.00 we got kicked out of the airport ( they were closing) and because there was -14 outside we decided to take a taxi to the hotel and asked for… Read Full Review

“Upgrade and extra driver insurance”

Written on: 03/02/2016

I hired 2 cars in Geneva from Hertz, fortunately both were 4 wheel drive as there had been a massive snow fall in our resort, and one car had to be upgraded due to a shortage of vehicles (at no cost to us). The driver of one car injured his shoulder on the last day of our holiday and after a few calls in France and Switzerland I was able to email a copy of the license for our driver's wife and we were all able to get to the airport that evening. So far, there has been no charge for the extra… Read Full Review

“Easy pick up and drop off. Good value.”

Written on: 03/02/2016 by JimmyHarrington (1 review written)

I didn't go for the smallest car possible, but it was still pretty small. Not Auto Europe's fault, of course! I didn't realise 2015 vignette (swiss motorway sticker) was valid so kept off the motorways. Again not Auto Europe's fault. I didn't like the way they try to sell excess insurance. That really is expensive - if you hired for a year it would work out at almost £1,300 to cover you for £1,500 excess. But pick up and drop off easy… Read Full Review

“Good car but confused service ”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by Trazu (1 review written)

We arrived at Poprad airport but could not find a Budget desk, we then called them to be told they would deliver shortly, this was done within 5 minutes, the same in return, we had to call and leave the keys in a box. We were however concerned with the 40 euro each way charge for airport Coll/delivery which was not mentioned throughout the booking process, only when we had paid and printed the voucher, be aware! All in all a good car but not as reasonably priced as expected… Read Full Review

“Excellent car hir in Florida”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by mcwilliammay (1 review written)

Hired our Alamo car through auto Europe for a seven week trip to Florida. The car was competitively priced and there were no additional add one when I collected the car. Alamo was excellent. We could choose our own car from the class we had booked. We had booked a Full Size car and selected a Chevvy Impala with only 2000 miles on the clock. Alamo's collection and drop off at Orlando airport were easy and efficient. Will use auto Europe next year as well, if they remain competitive… Read Full Review

“Very efficient and reasonably priced”

Written on: 01/02/2016 by Cobbvt259 (1 review written)

We picked up the car in Auckland and were out on the road within 20 minutes. The car rep was helpful and clear about the car and its hire. The car was better than we expected and we had a wonderful drive around the north island of New Zealand. The return of the car was a different story. We parked at Wellington ferry terminal in the last Europcar space an hour earlier than expected and posted the keys as requested in the drop off box in the ferry terminal. Since then, we have heard nothing, not… Read Full Review

Very slow service , never seems to be enough staff on duty. We never get the car advertised VW always results in a Skida for example . When you have a great deal of luggage a smaller car isn't ideal . Disappointing… Read Full Review

Dear Client

Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to learn that your overall car hire experience was not a pleasurable one.

Suppliers often use a vehicle to describe the group that you are booked, for example a 'Compact' size vehicle group may be described as a 'VW Golf or Similar'; this does not guarantee a VW Golf will be provided. However you should still receive a vehicle of this size.

Please do contact our Customer Service Team and they will check with the local supplier on the vehicle group you were provided with.

Many Thanks
Melanie

Very easy - no different to hiring from a main stream car hire company - but saves money! Only thing I would be wary of is insurance as I think if you take our excess policy you have to go through Auto Europe and not the hire company. Recommended though!… Read Full Review

“Poor insurance service ”

Written on: 26/01/2016 by Coyle1981 (1 review written)

Purchased over priced insurance waiver, which I know is available on some deals not others. At airport was offered upgrade but did not dare take it as I didn't know if insurance would be honoured. (my default understanding is that insurance will wriggle if they can so don't risk it). No way to check easily when you're at the desk. Hideous customer service. … Read Full Review
