Cars could be better clean at a pick up. Also waiting time at Schiphol could be improved by having more counters at such busy rental place.

7.3Все хорошо кроме непонятного момента почему сняли 100€ залога и после возврата авто их не вернули?

Персонал особо не содействовал в возврате авто, пришлось 6 раз вокруг аэропорта навернуть, за то знаю досконально окрестности! Почему залог не вернули???

Counter staff was very good but perhaps you could have a person who can chat with you about the vehicle you are picking up before you pick it up. Plus accessing your drop-off garage through and off the tunnels is a nightmare.

Several items of damage were not noted on the hire paperwork. I pointed these out when I picked the car up, and although the paperwork was updated manually Budget did not update their records. When I check the car back in, I was told the car was fine and shown the way to the terminal. I was subsequently charged approx €400 for the damage I had previously pointed out. This seemed a little sneaky - no discussion at the car, no email advising the reason for the debit on my credit card. I have discussed with Budget and been advised that I should get a refund in approx 3 weeks. Disappointing.

5.72h (!) waiting line at the pick up location They charged insurance while I said we had booked it

Not satisfied with the service. 2h of waiting at the pick up location. Besides, the person in the counter sold us in a sneaky way an extra insurance, while I said we had already paid everything and we had an insurance already. She (Gaby) didn’t explain to us that we would have to pay 164 eur extra on arrival day (if she had said so, we would have noticed the mistake / trick)

8.3Great car, but not cleaned well by Europcar

The car was great but smelled very badly of stale cigarette smoke from one of the previous renters. This was confirmed by the Europcar staff at the dropoff location. This really affected our enjoyment of the car as our clothes and belongings started to stink of smoke too.

6V expensive for the car we got. Would not recommend.

Had booked Ford Focus and got Citron C4 which was smaller as such we faced problem with the luggage space. Thought the staff could have been more supportive in allocating a bigger car since the car we booked was not available. The pick-up location is to mins by shuttle. its a Hassle to carry your luggage up to the car pick-up location.

8.7Very Good

As always, you never really know if or how to do the insurance. I paid for it through the booking site and the counter denounced the insurance and sell their policy. Luckily, I have never had to test it. The deposit seems crazy, I don’t remember this from any other rental company

6.7Hidden charges such as Flex Fuel and Additional Driver

The GOLDCAR representative insisted that we were required to pay an additional charge for "Additional Driver" and "Flex Fuel" even though our Easyrentcars.com reservation said that we would owe $0.00 upon vehicle pickup. When we asked why we were required to pay this, the GOLDCAR rep told us that is how the reservation came through even though he couldn't show us on the paper.

A month after returning car and hit with an unexplained bill, just self inflicted damage, I have photos and videos before and after and no damage was inflicted. Emailed budget customer service and no response, 3 weeks and counting. Desparate behaviour by a once reputable company.

8Very Good

The process of picking up the car took too long. There was a very long queue that moved very slowly. When we were finally served the person, although very nice and helpful, answered the phone while assisting us and had a 10 min conversation with another customer. He also was interrupted by other members of staff and had to stop serving us to speak to them - not great customer service!

When I returned the car, I was asked where the back tray is, and telling me I will have to pay a fine, since it was missing. I answered it wasn't there when I picked the car and the guy said I should have mentioned it when they gave me the car. A part which you cannot see is missing. eventually they "let us go"...

Frequently asked questions

Q1.What is an insurance excess?

The excess is the amount you'll only be liable for in case of damage(under Collision Damage Waiver) or theft(under Theft Protection) of the vehicle.
Information about the excess will be clearly stated in the price inclusion when you reserve a car on EasyRentCars.

Q2. How can I add an addtional driver?

You are advised to make a request upon your arrival at the rental counter. Additional charge per day will incur unless '1 Additional Driver Included' is stipulated on the rental.
Please note that the same licence and age requirement applys to the additonal driver. The addtional driver is supposed to present the required licence document along with the main driver at pickup.

Q3.What if I want to pick up or drop off my rental car out of office hours?

EasyRentCars will show you the car offers available at your chosen time on the search results.
However, pick-up or drop-off out of general opening hours may subject to an extra fee unless self-service pick-up or drop-off is available.
After you reserve a car on EasyRentCars, we will inform you of specific policy of the car hire company by email.

Q4. Can I take the hired car to another country or cross border?

If you want to pick up your car in one country and drop it in another, your search results will show you cars you can do that with.
If you're planning to cross any borders during your trip, bear in mind:
1. You may have to pay more.
There are often extra fees, taxes or additional cover you'll pay at the car hire counter.
2.It may not be allowed.
Depending on where you're hiring, you may not be able to take your car to another country.
Please email us if you want to take your hire car into a different country during your trip, and we'll talk you through your options.

Q5. Can I pick up my car at one location and return it at different location?

Yes. You can pick up the vehicle in one place and drop it off in another. An ‘one-way fee’ will incur. Whether it is inclued in the rental price or what additional cost may arise will be clearly stated at the time of booking on EasyRentCars.
Please inform the car hire company of your drop-off location when you pick up the vehicle or contact them directly during your trip. You will find a phone number on the rental agreement you signed at pickup.
