2.0 Mediocre15 Jun 2021
Nothing.I could have been made aware that I wasn't eligible to rent a car with my US Driver's Licence BEFORE going to pick up the car.
3.6 Mediocre2 Oct 2019
Almost nothing. Service was a lie and post service was inexistent.Everything. The info provided in the booking was not the same provided during the service. The post service assistance (Mr. Sergio - representante. De servicios al cliente) was absolutely inefficient and annoying. Didn’t provide any solution, didn’t review the case. Not having a telephone numbe

Good rental car experineceI received the car I wanted at a good price. Pick up and drop off were quick and as expected. Shuttle takes you from service counter to car lot which is just off airport. Sixt has always treated me well.
2.0 Mediocre6 Oct 2017
Horrible ServiceNothingI was told at the counter that since I declined the insurance (because my credit card applied theirs) that they had to place a 4000 Euro hold on the card. They placed a 4900 euro hold on my card.
6.0 Good13 Jul 2016
Argument over state of the car upon return, otherwLocation for pick up in Bucharest Central Car was clean, but do read the comments.Casual attitude of the staff for scratches/damages when receiving the car from Sixt, not the same while returning to airport, Note to other users, please make sure that you check the car carefully, not just indication on paper on the car image for damages, but also what's written on the paper about the state of the car, we almost got caught as there was damage on the car not indicated on paper, but were told 'It is a problem' while returning. It needed a wait of 30 min for someone else to hear the same story and state 'car was ok'.

1.9 Horrible15 Sep 2021
Huge difference between published prices and final cost. Manager is very unprofessional and rude. Employees are overworked. There is no policy for early returns refund even partial. Poor management and expensive, much better options out there, they have no interest in customer fidelity. I will never rent from them again.

They didn't have a car for me
2.0 Mediocre26 Jun 2018
Bad serviceEmployees do not understand the nature of their business or their clients. They make no effort to satisfy customers. Some cars are in really bad shape. I had to wait one hour before I could get my car. They do not have an office at the airport.
4.4 Okay2 May 2018
Hidden FeesNice staff at the Bucharest PaylessWe were promised by Car rentals.com that all fees were included. when we got to Payless they made us pay another 80 Euros for a 1 way fee and 10 Euros for highway pass fees. I am working on getting refunded.
2.0 Mediocre31 Jan 2018
they have hidden tax((I paid +50% more that we agree ,when I get the car. They charge me for winter tyres 50 euros. By law in Romania they were supposed to have them on the car in the winter I'm very, very unhappy with Payless.I will never use this rental company again.

Please add a phone number for this rental location to the reservation!Great price.Unclear what number to call for shuttle to rental lot.
9.6 Excellent22 Feb 2017
Friendly and fast pickup and delivery.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.
