Pros:Good gas mileage, easy to park and maneuver due to size.Cons:Being up front regarding the cost of insurance, which adds, at minimum, an additional $1000. Also, being scolded for arriving late to pick up was unacceptable.Reviewed 28 Sep. 2019

Price not even close to our quotePros:It was cleanCons:We were told by kayak the rental would be 114 euro, but the rental actually cost us a little over 1000.00. This is a rediculous price for a standard / stick rental. We were hot over the head with extra costs at the counter... and had no choice but to pay. I amputating in a dispute with our credit.Reviewed 1 Jul. 2018

Beware the hidden costsPros:Car was comfortableCons:Final price came in nearly double what we were originally quoted due to additional services (roadside assistance, personal insurance, etc.) being added by the agent at pickup. We specifically stated that we required no insurance (we have our own) & were not asked or informed about any of the other services/charges that were added. When we inquired about these charges at drop-off we were told it was too late to protest or receive a refund. Absolute rip-off.Reviewed 1 Aug. 2017

Great valuePros:Very good price, even though it was a very basic car.Reviewed 3 Jun. 2017

Added costsPros:The car itself was decent. Very basic, no special features like power anything or Bluetooth but it was decent on gas and fairly comfortable. The gentleman that returned my car was ex excellent and very helpful making sure I made my flight on time after checking my car back in.Cons:When I reserved the car I added the coverage and was given one price with no information about a deductible or additional cost. When I picked it up I was charged twice the reservation price because they said I needed to pay the deductible of $1500 or select the more expensive insurance coverage. Costs aren't very clear when reserving and I specifically looked for the information about insurance before I made the reservation. Took a big chunk of my vacation money I hadn't planned on over what I set aside for the rentalReviewed 20 May 2017
