Drop off with John at Avis was really great! Such courteous and friendly service. So nice to see such professionalism. Would be great to have instructions in the car for using Satnav maps. I used my iPhone but was a little confused with car screen presentation at times. Overall a fabulous experience and would definitely recommend Avis at this location.

1000 pound fine on each big scratch, unless you buy a daily costly waiver for this, is almost Blackmailing.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff engaging and helpful.

Cons:

Cigarette lighter did not work so could not use my own satnav and had to buy a map. As a rule, cars seem to be advertised as a focus / mondeo or similar and despite hiring lots of cars, I almost never receive the car that is advertised - I know the brief on this, but whole process seems a bit of a ruse. The Excess amount to be charged for a potential incident is excessive. Not very easy to see bumps / scuffs / chips etc on the car in the dark on pick-up or to be fair on drop-off.

The car was to come with a GPS but it wasn’t installed. They don’t provide portable GPS units. Fortunately we have a cell phone with us and the charge cord fits. They were very helpful in explaining the car’s features and the car manual was supplied.

Pros:

Near to my hotel, quite centralize. The car was clean and in good condition.

Cons:

The drop-off point have very limited parking place and should have informed customer on any public holiday as we were not told about it. We have encountered some issues and could not find anyone to consult with despite paying so much money.

Cons:

I had difficulty finding both the pickup location in St. Pancras, London and the dropoff location in Edinburgh. I had to walk around and ask in several buildings before I found the St. Pancras office. Then, when I used Bing to find the address of the Sixt office in Edinburgh, the first address than came up was incorrect. It was many miles from the correct location. The folks at another car rental office were good enough to direct me to the correct address.

Pros:

The guys at the agency were nice.

Cons:

The check in was a bit long I booked a peugeot 308 automatic and I got a mini The guy at the agency presented it as an upgrade as my car wasn't available. I didn't know yet what I was getting into so I agreed. If I would have known how uncomfortable this car was I would have said no!!! I booked the 308 to have a spacious and comfortable car to do our tour of Scotland. The mini didn't match our expectations in comfort at all!!!! We had to have a break every hour because of the pain on our backs and legs!!!

I was hugely disappointed overall. Just to change the pick up from city center to the airport turned out to be impossible. The location in city center is very difficult to find, even by cabbies. And to get a car big enough to accommodate our luggage, that had been fully explained in our request last September, cost an additional 500 pounds. What was a good deal turned into exploitation. Either lose all our prepaid money or pony up the extra money and drag all our luggage into the city center to get a bigger car. We’re all in our sixties— not good customer service to me! With Hertz, we spent half us much for two weeks as we spent for one week with Sixt. Kane at the airport and Adam at city center were very helpful at getting us in a larger vehicle but at a cost. On the other hand, the online assistance was non existent. Rude, extremely slow to respond and not helpful. I won’t be using Sixt again.

Our car was not available when we arrived and it took 2.5 hours for them to get a new one. The replacement car was much larger so they charged us double for the “upgrade”. Very unhappy with the experience.

The location is hard to get to, and the representative tried to upsell us to a Mercedes for an additional 500 pounds to the point of almost arguing with us that we booked the wrong car. The online insurance I bought was also not accepted either and we had no idea until I got to the counter, so I lost that money too. It cost me another 250 pounds for their insurance. The car was clean, and got us where we needed to go.

A car was available for me to drive. That was good. The bad: 1) Original quote was for £ 275 - the local Hertz desk charged me £ 691 and tried to charge me over £ 800!! 2) I requested an automatic transmission and got a stick 3) there was a huge scratch in the rear passenger door 4) There was no return sign at the Inverness airport for Hertz, all the other rental car agencies were represented but not Hertz. We had to drive around for 10 min trying to find it, and luckily saw the tiny Hertz sign upon leaving the airport. Kind of a disaster regarding the drop off.
