KAYAK

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 wait

3.2 Poor

May 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

It was a nice day

Cons:

LGW to their location is a pain with all your bags You can’t use your own insurance so have to buy their expensive policy Quote said unlimited miles but you only get 100 per day Misleading bait & switch company. Not recommended

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Cons:

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 clear

3.2 Poor

Aug 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

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.

2.0 Poor

Jun 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing. Do not do business with this company

Cons:

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.

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Pros:

Absolutely nothing.

Cons:

Forced me to get insurance even though I had it through my credit card. Charged me a one-way fee even though my reservation said there would not be one. Did not provide me with a contract.

Most of the experience was excellent but felt like the original pick up experience was too pushy in trying to upsell us to spend money on things we didn't need. They know we've just landed from a long flight and are experiencing jet lag and it feels like they are trying to take advantage of you in that moment. Maybe that's just they're job but that part wasn't pleasant.

We landed in the North Terminal in Gatwick and had to walk for miles to pick up our car in the South Terminal. Other than that, car was great and service was excellent.

Car due for us needed a service, but after short delay, alternative was found on a busy day for them (rail strike). Courteous and option to return to north terminal without surcharge. Great.

Car rental desk was closed at the terminal I landed at. I had to catch a train to the other terminal which took about half an hour. Staff got confused sorting out the rental because it was priced in US dollars, but I was renting the car in England and paying in New Zealand dollars. That took two people about another half hour. The car I rented had an issue with the gearbox making it difficult to engage first gear sometimes, even though it only had 36,000 miles on the clock. When I returned the car there was no one at the yard to receive it. Another customer turned up at the same time and both of us spent about ten minutes trying to find staff members to take the keys and sign off the returns. Eventually, two mechanics came back to the workshop and told us we had to walk to the rental office to return the keys. Walking there and dealing with that took another ten minutes. I will not rent with Budget from Gatwick again. The price was also outrageous. I could have bought a small car for that amount.

Car was good. No information given on what to do to get through exit toll booth as non ticket was provided. No personnel present for car return. Not sure what to go except just leave the car and hope all was ok.

Upgrade to Nissan SUV was nice but it's a big vehicle for a British back roads. Everyone seemed to be getting an SUV or Mercedes- thank goodness she didn't try to give us the latter.

Cons:

Lengthy wait at pickup, no one in LGW North Terminal office at all for first 10+ min. She called for help and help came, though, and everyone was friendly.

The in person workers were pleasant enough but the car was terrible. We were told we’d have a 5 person 4 suitcase car. When we put our suitcases in the car we barely fit 3 people. The windshield wipers did not work and we had many days of scary rain. We had to hold them down while driving and it wasn’t safe. The stick shift didn’t work properly and the car pulled badly to the left. We tried many times to call customer service to exchange the car or return it to a different location because we were too scared to drive it. We were never able to get a hold of someone that could help us. One time we spoke to a person and she supposedly gave us an inside line but no one ever answered the line. We had locals try to help us, the two hotels tried but to no avail. We left the car parked at a hotel for 6 days without driving it because we couldn’t get back to where we rented it and we were too scared to drive it. The whole thing was awful and traumatizing. When we returned it we let them know about the difficulties but they didn’t seem to care. I won’t rent from them again. I hope they look it over before renting it out again but I doubt they will as they are so busy.
