10.0 Excellent16 Apr. 2017
a great rental experiencePros: Renting a car in Japan is a little adventurous, if only because one drives on the left and directions in Japanese are not so easy to follow if one doesn't speak and read that language. That is why having the rental car company switch the built-in GPS to English without extra cost and even without getting asked is a significant customer service achievement! The vehicle was ready at the appointed time, it took very little time to complete the paperwork (I had done this before, and the agent spoke just enough English for everything but to be smooth), and the return was equally unproblematic. I can highly recommend Times Car Rental.Cons: There were no problems of any kind.

6.0 Good7 Feb. 2018
Got lost, called in via international roaming and they still insistedPros: The car is good for cityCons: I called in using an international mobile to mention i will be 30mins late as the GPS (in Japanese) took me to another route and they said yes yes and ok on the phone but when we arrived they insisted to charge me for 30 mins. This is a first for me with Hertz.

Top tips for hiring a car in Osaka

  • Hire a car in Osaka to escape the city rush at your discretion and visit rural destinations in the Kansai region, as well as make your transport from and to the airport more smooth. Trains are busy throughout the day in Osaka and it can be stressful navigating crowded carriages if you are travelling with lots of luggage. It’s possible to drive to the peak of Mount Kongō in roughly 1h 15min; however, to reach it by public transport, you must changeover in Kawachinagano and set aside around 1h 45min. The Tōdai-ji temple is another attraction best accessed with a hire car, as trains and buses require about 1h 30min while driving directly takes only 40min.
  • The reception desks of Nippon Rent-A-Car, Nissan Rent-A-Car and Times are located in the Aeroplaza at Kansai International Airport (KIX).
