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 Newcastle upon Tyne car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them.

Pros: Great service, very accommodating. Easirent was the best experience I've had renting a car. Their overall reviews seem lackluster, so I don't know if it was the location I was at (Newcastle) or if they've stepped their game up. I would definitely use Easirent again, and would definitely recommend them.Cons: My old qualm is that automatic costs a lot more than manual. I can drive manual, but my buddy couldn't. I was designated driver, which is a bit tiring when you're driving long distances.

10.0 Excellent6 Dec. 2020
Pros: The lady at Newcastle was extremely helpful and very friendly. Although the Lexus was smaller than I expected, the vehicle itself was comfortable, extremely clean and made my journey very pleasant. The drop off was very straight forward, although there wasn't any staff when I dropped the vehicle off in Aberdeen, and left the keys at the drop off letter box. Overall, I'd recommend Enterprise for hiring a vehicle in the future.Cons: The vehicle category I had rented was the full size SUV, which states a Volvo XC60 or similar. The Lexus is much smaller than an XC60 and not a full size SUV. I think the vehicle categories should be described much more clearer.

4.8 Okay21 Oct. 2018
Not what I expected - very unprofessional.Pros: The car was OK and met my expectationsCons: I agreed a hire cost with Kayak from the USA. When I picked-up the car I was told I had to pay an extra £21. When I argued that I had a contract they somewhat reluctantly said that an adjustment would be made when I returned the car. But when I returned the car the office was closed because of flooding problem according to the notice on the door! When I called the number I was told to just put the keys through the letterbox! Now I am very uncomfortable that the contract has been concluded in an appropriate and professional manner.
