Rented car in France to visit D-Day beachesStaff was friendly and helpful, and offered advice about driving in France, since they could tell I was not a "native.". Car was fairly new and in good working order.It would be very helpful to have a "Rules of the road" pamphlet or something, to help prepare foreign drivers. But overall, we managed just fine.

INCORRECT FINAL CHARGES!The car was great. Economical, clean, efficient and the Dollar Rep was friendly and informative.Originally I reserved a car for 5-days, but plans changed before I picked up the car. When I picked up the car I changed the reservation to 4-days which was entered into the computer and confirmed by the Dollar Representative. When I dropped off the car, 4-day later, I was still charged for the full 5-days.

NothingWhen we made the reservation it was written all over the website that it was free cancellation, but when we cancelled we were charged $125 cancellation fee.

Both Sixt team members were very helpful and check-in and out was VERY quick and easy. Just remember to remind non-French renters about the "reverse" idiosyncrasies". :)

The counter was open but not staffed even after I waited for more than an hour so I had to get a car from another company.
10.0 Excellent2 Aug. 2019
There was just one staffer at the Caen rental office, but he was extremely friendly and solicitous. We had to wait only a few minutes while he got the customer ahead of us sorted out, someone who seemed slightly baffled by the process. As soon as he returned, we were on our way in minutes.2 things: The contract had "0 kilometres" not "unlimited kilometres" & I was concerned when I read the e-mailed form next am. 2: I'd rather the counter people not be required to try to sell upgrades. I'd chosen the car I wanted and required and didn't want to be pressured about upgrading.

Car was new and cleanWe had a problem and needed to pick up the car 4 hours later than the time reserved. Called several numbers. No one could help me. No one spoke English. Finally someone said I would have to cancel my reservation and create a new one and it would be more money. I did not do that. Got to the Car rental place and my car was there. It wasn’t s problem. Put me through a lot of unnecessary aggravation. Will not be using kayak again .

All in All a Really Good Rental ExperienceRental office very convenient to train station in Caen. Clearly marked with signage. Rental agent very nice and seemed to know his job. We speak French but still his excellent English was helpful and for non French speakers, would be a huge plus. Car was very nice and exactly as described. Paperwork was clear except for key return and location of return lot. The rental was expensive but comparable to other companies in Caen so cannot really complain, they all seem expensive compared to other rentals in other places. We drove the car for 2.5 days, and it was a big car by French standards, for less than 15 euros worth of diesel fuel. We have rented in Caen many times. Avis is far and away the best. It is an American company with American service standards, which helps a lot.The car was 20 minutes late getting there and we were waiting. Also, we really wanted to take an earlier train from Paris but the rental office closes for several hours in the middle of the day. This has been the case for years. People are coming on a train from Paris that arrives around noon and you find the rental office dark and locked. There is nothing that warns you when you rent the car. We were victims of this before so knew to watch for it with Avis but it is really annoying. For the return, the instructions to return the key were to go to lost and found on platform 1. There is no platform 1. After a 10 minute search, during which the Caen train station information desk was unmanned, we asked an attendant at the hot dog stand where lost and found is and were directed to platform A. The lot to return the car is a substantial walk to the train station, which is not told either on the contract or verbally. So we walked all that distance with a lot of luggage when we could have dropped all that off ahead of the return and sent one person to this lot, not 4. The location of the return lot is VERY obscure. We had a GPS and even so found the entrance to the lot to be extremely hard to find. A map and some verbal directions instead of just an address would have been helpful. We found it but almost didn't, even though we have been there before and I recall a LOT of driving around the first time.

Limited customer serviceThe interior of car was comfortable. Location of car rental to train station was greatCustomer service. First, I was not completely sure of the terms based on conversation at checkout. Two: after finding car on street, we noticed Big ding on front right corner and several scratches on side panel. Agent was not aware. Three: returning car to lot and turning in keys to information person at train station did not seem like a good business.

How to cancel!I had miscalculated the dates, so, wanted to delay by a week. I could not cancel on line. I tried by email, but the given email kept being rejected. Eventually I called my phone and canceled. Not very convenient. I had canceled hotels before thru kyak and that was much easier.

I was supposed to get a Citroen Berlingo or similar vehicle per my reservation but the only vehicle they had available was a large cargo van so I had to get a car with another company.
2.0 Mediocre14 Mar. 2019
The enterprise did not have the car I reserved available so I wasn’t able to rent a car after traveling to Caen by train that morning. I had to completely change my trip as I no longer had a car to drive. The employee at the dealership was not helpful or remorseful at all. Terrible experience.Literally everything. They could have not lied and accepted my reservation. The deal offered was too good so they gave my car away to someone who paid more.

Not the vehicle I had reservedOffice staff was ok, dealt with the situation politely and promptly issued me a refund.I had reserved a Citroen Berlina, which can be used as a car or small utility vehicle that has windows all around and can seat up to five people. I arrived to the Enterprise rental place and they did not have such vehicle, so they wanted to give me a large, windowless van, econoline style. I refused since it’s was not what I had reserved. They did not have other vehicles or cars available so I cancelled the rental and went next door to Avis.
3.6 Mediocre27 Jul. 2017
Both ladies in the check in and out where very nice and accommodating.When we got the car the reverse didn't seem quite right and the day we were returning the vehicle the reverse quit working entirely. So we had to put it in neutral and push it, to back it up. Thank God it was the last day of the rental and we weren't miles away from the rental drop off location, however, it was very challenging trying to get it there and parallel parked.

Enterprise met expectations with the type of car (automatic) and the car was in a good shape, plus people were very helpfulAs this was a European rental, the hours of operations were not as good as US offices with typically a 1-2 hour break during lunch. Plus there was only one person at the counter and I was unable to return the car since the counter person was helping others and took off for her lunch break. In addition, parking was not available. All of which made it difficult to return the car. I had to wait an hour and a half for a new person to show up after the lunch break.

Car hire excess insurance in Caen

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Caen car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Caen.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Caen car rental.
