Cons:BEWARE DONT EVER USE THEMReviewed 24 Feb. 2017

Cons:We waited 3 hours for our car to be ready at the rental place even though we showed up on time. Additionally the company made numerous charges to our credit card that we did not approve, the staff were rude and unpleasant towards customers. They took no responsibility for their shortcomings and blamed all of the issues on the customers, there were several yelling matches between customers and staff in the rental office. The actual rental car place was a 15-20 minute shuttle to the airport and it was advertised as being at the airport, and the shuttle only came every 45 minutes. I would never recommend this service to anyoneReviewed 17 Jun. 2017

London GatwickCons:Off Airport location means building an extra hour or so to journey as shuttle timetable is every 30 minutes. Queue at checkout desk due to "surprise" deposits for fuel and insurance delay rentals due to explanations/frustrations/anger at unadvertised approach - i.e .you get a good deal if you can afford to put down a lot of money first and believe it will be refunded to you - upfront rather than after rental charging is hidden in the small print.Reviewed 31 Jul. 2017

Ridiculously far from the airport ... not only distance but timeCons:The lack of information about what shuttle to get from the airport. The schedule of the shuttle from the airport once I finally found out which bus it was... it was once every HOUR. Once on the bus, seeing that you had to pay 3 GBP EACH to travel. Not taking card on the bus... because we were not informed we had to pay. Then arriving at the rental place faced with a queue of 10 people... took me 4 hours from landing to getting the car and home (7 miles away) Then being told my booking did NOT have CDW and therefore it was an extra 70 GBP. NOT IMPRESSED.Reviewed 7 Aug. 2018

Pros:The value and car were goodCons:hard pressure upselling for insurance coverage extras by easirent at the point of pick-up was annoying, the off airport pick-up and drop off location was served at 45 minute intervals which was a delay to my tripReviewed 4 Sep. 2017

insurance scammers plain and simpleCons:absolute scam .. sell you a cheap hire package then bully you into paying to reduce the excess ....95 pound charged to your card for fuel that you may get back if you are very lucky . returned my car with a small scratch and was informed well that's your 500 gone .. without even looking at the car .. add to that the 75 pound admin charge and there all round indifference and ignorance to how to treat ppl with dignity made it a horrible experience ... stay well clear from easirent scam artists whose business model is rent cheap because once we've got their card details we can rob them blind .. Steer well clearReviewed 23 Aug. 2018

Bad company policies, good employeesPros:The guy attending was really nice and helped a lot, even gave us a lift to the airport after we had some trouble when dropping off the car.Cons:The "shuttle" to the rental office is a regular bus that runs every 40', plus 15' drive. The car rental requires a deposit of 1250 pounds which most credit cards cannot support, thus having to pay a 17pounds/day extra to lower the deposit to 500 pounds. When picking up the car it was late night and there was no light and so we barely could see anything on the car since it was black. When dropping off the car we were charged with the 500 pounds deposit for things we hadn't done, fortunately we had pictures from the morning after picking it up and the guy at the office, who was a really nice guy, took those as proof. Was it not for him, the guy checking the car would have charged us with the whole deposit for things that were clearly too old to have been done by us.Reviewed 8 Mar. 2017

DissapointedCons:I arrived later due to my delayed flight and took almost 1 hour to get picked up to the rental place , on top the guy told me that somebody took my car already and then that another person cancelled my reservation so he offered he took me outdoor and try to give me another large car that apparently was the only one available with another price of course so took my bags and when to budget!Reviewed 21 Aug. 2017

Run From This Place-Bait and Switch at Its FinestPros:Avoid this place at all costs if you have arranged to purchase your own liability coverage or plan to use liability coverage provided by a credit card. This place baits you in with low rates. What is not clear is that you have to take a 20 min shuttle ride to their property. The shuttle bus lets you on for free, but if you don't complete the rental you have to fight to return to the airport on the same shuttle for free. This place was awful. They got us all the way there then told us unless we got their liability coverage for 30 pounds a day, they would have charge our credit card for $40,000. They did swipe our card and of course it was declined. Sleezy. Now I know why they aren't on the airport Hilton property. There were probably so many complaints that the Hilton didn't want to have its name associated with this sleezy company.Cons:Hated the place. I feel sorry for first time visitors to London who get bullied into buying their overpriced insurance because they don't know that there are better alternatives. We fought our way back to the airport on the shuttle, for free. We ended up renting an nice Audi sports wagon, automatic, from SIXT for more than half the price this place was going to charge after they added in all their hidden fees. Run. Do not rent from here. If you do, it's on you because you've been warned.Reviewed 5 Dec. 2016

Pros:At pickup the vehicle was given away and we had to pay for an upgrade. We also had to buy insurance, as we could not show proof that our credit card covered excess insurance laibility. Shuttle buses run every 45 minutes, so there is a long waitReviewed 27 Jan. 2020

Pros:Nothing. Do not do business with this companyCons:Long wait for shuttle and long distance to drive. Additional fees and charges plus insurance requirements applied and incorrectly stated as legal requirements for cow in UK. Then required increased rental cost as they did not have booked car available. Decided to use another company at airport as it became cheaper and much more pleasant/customer oriented. Do not honor bookings as made or requirements on their own website.Reviewed 12 Jun. 2018

Hidden costsPros:The rental car was super. Nice people at the counter. My only complaint is the hidden costs. I booked in the US, and when I got to the counter in the UK they told me of the extra, mandatory insurance costs and the hold that would be placed on my card, etc. These details should have been made clear (and handled) up front in the booking process. They told me if I had booked directly with them it would have been clear, but using Kayak the process, once I was in the UK, was more convoluted. Please make it easier in the future, and totally transparent.Reviewed 10 Dec. 2017
