Pros:Friendly and fast pickup and delivery.Cons:When the weather is cold and there is snow a tool to clean the windshield should be provided. Waking up in the morning and finding out you can not use the car for sometime is not a good surprise.Reviewed 22 Feb 2017
review fromkayak
Cons:Collection of the car was fine. The return was more problematic, the address given was not accurate and so took a while until I found the place, besides the place is dark and you can not check the vehicle properly. Reception representative vehicle passes you on the cell phone with the help of light making it difficult to see flaws you must properly. The return suddenly appears a large flashlight and checked the vehicle with surprisingly discovered almost invisible scratches appear, although I had full insurance all the time I was told that the insurance does not cover the scratch. The general feeling is that trying to trip you up. There are many rumors about similar cases, I think this issue should be handled in front of representatives in Romania.Reviewed 12 Feb 2017

Great car and servic value but the car is not in tPros:Very good car and service. Great priceCons:We had to wait 30 minutes for pickup to the carReviewed 7 Feb 2017
review fromkayak
Probably better to look elsewherePros:* The equipment seemed decent, though it might be a bit old according to Western European or US standards. Most cars in the fleet come with manual transmission, I believe.Cons:* The pickup from the airport did not go well; the place is not well marked, and no one was waiting for me (their excuse was that Kayak does not forward my reservation to them). Had a friendly security person showed me the way, and eventually someone from the shop turned up. * They upsell their insurance, which seems to have a tremendous amount of markup.Reviewed 1 Nov 2016
