Beware! Be ready to get ripped off!The car itself was OK.The staff at Granada rental office ripped me off with extra charges. I refused all the extra charges for additional driver and various insurance options since I purchased a comprehensive insurance in advance, but later I found out she added additional driver charges. She didn't even give me a detail receipt in English saying that the computer system didn't allow her to print detail receipt in English and gave me a strange receipt in German language only showing the total amount. The receipt didn't show any detailed charges and the total amount was 80 euros more than the amount I booked for. She said the computer system added security deposit and gas charge in advance automatically which will be reduced at drop off. I knew that something was not right and, of course, I ended up paying 40 euros more than the amount I booked the car for. Very sneaky business. I don't recommend Budget rental at Granada office. They will rip you off.

Used food containers in back, terrible pickup/dropWhen we first picked up the car, the paper was marked with no damages but when we got it it had serious damage to bumpers (front and back). Manager fixed it but then we found used food containers later so it clearly wasn't cleaned either. The dropoff/pickup locations is tiny and terrible. I would not rent from here again.Trash, outside damage, poor location

3.2 Mediocre1 May 2018
Worst car rental experience everNothingPickup was a horrendous experience. I've always been able to grab a car earlier than my reservation time. I understand it’s ultimately based off availability, so when the front desk attendant told me I couldn't get it sooner than one hour before my reservation time, I was okay with that. That was until I was assigned a car which had been clearly sitting on the lot before I arrived - a complete waste of my time. I usually pay for car rental insurance through 3rd party vendors, which is always fine. But for some reason, the front desk attendant told me I wasn't insured. I said I was and just paid it through Kayak (at $27), and he said that my file says I did not pay and had to pay Avis if I wanted the car insured. I dug through my emails and showed him the receipt proving I was insured through the reservation, and he tells me that it only covers changing the reservation. When I downloaded the PDF and showed that I was actually insured for damages to the vehicle up to $40,000, he said they didn't accept Allianz anyways and I had to cancel with them and pay Avis 90 euros to protect my car against damages. I told him that it didn’t make sense for Kayak to offer insurance that Avis wouldn’t accept and asked if he could tell me about their policies with 3rd party rentals. He said he doesn't have that information (could be true but still a reflection on Avis having terrible training policies - insurance is a big/complicated deal and their front desk attendants should understand the ins and outs of it) and goes on to say the car is only protected if I purchase through Avis. I obliged as I was tired of going back and forth and trusted that he knew more than I did being that he is an actual Avis employee. After doing some research, it sounds like I would have been fine through Allianz. This is incredibly disappointing as I feel I was manipulated through scare tactics to fork over more money for an already overpriced reservation. He also knew I was traveling into Portugal, and offered no help or assistance in regards to potential tolls, bridge fees, etc. All he seemed to car about was making me pay more and trying to spend as little time as possible providing actual customer service.

1.9 Horrible27 Aug. 2021
You’ve got to be kidding me. What an absolute pathetic joke of a rental car company. Where do I even begin… First upon arrival for our 3 PM reservation we walked in at 2:15pm. We were immediately told by a rude clerk that the rental was not ready - we thought this was interesting given that our reservation time was 45 minutes from our arrival. Still though, all she said was to go away and come back for our reservation. She never said specifically when, but that the reservation wouldn’t be ready until 3pm. We went to lunch - In Spain, lunches are traditionally longer than expected we were not finished until 330 and immediately walked over to the rental car station. It was then where we were told by a different rude clerk that The car we had reserved was no longer available and that we needed to have been they are to pick it up within 15 MINUTES of the reservation time. She stated that because we weren’t, the reservation had been completely CANCELED. As you can imagine this was a complete surprise to us a because A) that is an absolutely absurd expectation for individuals traveling, and B) because we were never told this the first time we visited this location—NOR WAS IT STATED IN THE CONFIRMATION EMAIL. Because our reservation was canceled we tried to rebook from a different location with a car available the next day; somehow the story gets even better. Upon arrival for our 9 AM reservation the next morning we sat there and waited until 9:15am and no one even showed up to the store. We called the number posted on the front door and an individual actually told us that the reason no one was at the store was because we hadn’t completed a detail on the reservation that stated we had an international drivers license. We were never even told we needed an international drivers license. Apparently this is an expectation for Enterprise, but IT IS NOT for several of their competitors (Six car rental, Hertz, Avis). The happy ending is that we were able to book a car with Six and not have to miss the rest of our trip. Enterprise rental nearly made us miss the wedding we were planning to attend. If you are looking for a reliable affordable communicative rental car service I do not recommend enterprise rental car with any fiber of my being. My suggestion is to book with Hertz, Avis, or Six car rental first and foremost.

Drop-off after hours was straighforwardPick up took 30 minutes. It could have been 5 minutes, if one member of staff had been in the car park and the other membver of staff had dealt with the minimal paperwork and left the customer to walk with the car keys from the office to the car park

you pay if they don't have the car you rentedStaff were very friendly.Did not have the car I reserved so I was forced to get a bigger car and they made me pay for the difference. Did not explain anything about the drop off procedure even though they knew I would return car after closing hour.

I reserved a Mercedes Benz and was given a Ford Focus instead. How's that for a "bait and switch!" Being in a foreign country that left me little choice. That's not how business should be done.
9.2 Excellent17 Aug. 2019
the staff was very helpful and courteous at all times. The overall rental experience was easy and with no hidden costs. We paid exactly what was quoted in the website. Very pleased.The pick-up was convenient for us, as close to our accommodation but it would be helpful to offer drop off at the airport, or at least provide directions how to get there. We got lost trying to find the bus stop to catch the bus to the airport. Other than that, very good service!

Online offer was just a bait.Car was clean and in good condition.Once we came to pick up the car, they only had more expensive cars available than advertised. Also, when we returned the car, it had a scratch for which they charged us 130 Euro damage fee (absolutely fair) plus 60 Euro administration fee which was not covered by our insurance. The employee literally just filled out one form. We felt ripped off.

Staff was friendly. Pick up location was convenient. Car was ready and clean and easy to drive.At pick-up we were charged an extra 69 euro fees on top of the $72 in fees already paid. Adding up to about $150 to the base car rental fee for a 4 day rental. (Base rate was $120. We actually paid closer to $300 total) The break down apparently was a 40 euro fee to drop off at a different location. Plus some 21% tax that added up to 29 euro. The other $72 was a $18 “taxes and fees” per day. I found it to be deceptive pricing on Hertz’s part.

Top tips for hiring a car in Granada

  • Granada has many amazing attractions to offer, from very old ones like the Alhambra to very new ones like the Parque de las Ciencias (a science park). Spread all over the city, the best way to explore each of the many sights is by renting your own four wheels. Don’t rely on the timetables of public transport and discover the beauty of Granada on your own terms. The Cumbres Verdes and Sierra Nevada are also not far away, only a 30-minute or 50-minute car ride, respectively.
  • Granada International Airport is located about 11 miles from Granada’s center, which is why it is best to pick up a car directly from the airport’s onsite agencies. Via the A-92, travelers will be in Granada in half an hour by car. The hire service desks are located in the main arrivals hall and include companies like Europcar, Avis, and Budget.
  • The old center of Granada is made up of narrow roads and, unless you have a special permit from your hotel, the old center is only accessible to locals and public transport. Inquire at the hire agency and your hotel to make sure you don’t enter the zones accidentally, as cameras are in place and fines can be enforced. Since the street system can be confusing in Granada with ring roads circulating around the city, renting a GPS system with your car is recommended.
  • Unlike many other European countries, most of the freeways in Spain and around Granada are toll-free, and drivers can use them to quickly get around, which makes Spain the perfect country for a road trip. There are a few toll freeways, but they are around bigger cities like Madrid or Malaga and marked with a “P” after the usual “A,” which designates a freeway. The A-92 around Granada is free, for example, but the AP-36 has tolls.

  • On average hiring a car in Granada costs $487 per week ($70 per day).

  • As the city consists of many narrow roads, it is recommendable to opt for a compact car, as well as a convertible to get the most out of the Spanish sunshine. As petrol is very expensive in Europe compared to in the US, a compact car is also a good choice, as it will require less gas. Parking can also be a difficult undertaking in Granada and a small car can squeeze into more spots.

  • Adhere to the posted speed limits at all times and keep in mind that Spain states the limit in kilometers per hour. Within the city borders, generally 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted, but many smaller side roads only permit 20-30 km/h (12-18 mph). On rural highways, 90 km/h (55 mph) is allowed and up to 120 km/h (74 mph) is permitted on freeways.

  • Petrol prices are pretty high in Europe, and Granada is no exception. One liter will cost around €1.20 ($1.36, which is around $5.44 per gallon). Almost all petrol stations in Spain are self-service and you pay at the counter inside. Cash and cards are accepted, but remember that in Europe a 4-digit PIN (personal identification number) is required to authorize the transfer.

  • Finding a parking space in Granada can be a bit of a hassle, so, if possible, try to find a hotel which has a parking space included. Alternatively there are parking garages around the city, such as the Parking Arabial or Traumatologia, which charge around €1.60 per hour.
