4.4 Mediocre

Jun 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

I don't know why but the price was duble.

2.0 Poor

Apr 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Kayak and carrentals were providing incomplete information about car rental process and cost. Quotation was given without insurance cost which once added inflated the overall cost to become very expensive and noncompetitive. This may be good for US residents with the right credit card.

Cons:

You must provide clear guidance on insurance issue and whether it is included or not. I paid four times the quoted price for half the period and my main concern was to return the vehicle ASAP rather than getting on with my trip. The trick of small print was not expected from big providers like you.

8.8 Very Good

Mar 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick-up was slow; they could have done with more staff. The ones who were there coped very well. The duty manager kept us all informed as to the progress of the queue, which was much appreciated. Dorota (Dorothy) checked me in and provided excellent customer service.

Cons:

See above.

8.4 Very Good

Sep 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

No issue with the car and we drove about 850 miles

Cons:

Waited in line for 30 minutes to pick up the car Inside front windshield was not cleaned well before pickup

6.8 Okay

Aug 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean and ran well, and they were very friendly on pickup and drop off.

Cons:

Your Canadian insurance is not applicable in Europe. Only in North America. Well, remember when you get extra insurance in Canada, and it’s $10 a day? Not in Europe. The first quote from the attendant was 42 pounds a day (that’s $70 CAD!!!). Yes. A day. When we started asking questions, it got better. Roadside assistance removed. 12 pounds. Our $200 quote for a rental turned into $550. However, all said and done, they treated us well, and the car was clean and comfortable (although check for a spare - we had none). When we talked to our friends who rented in Ireland, they made all the arrangements to rent from Canada, and the cost was identical. So the warning is, the cost you see is for the rental. Multiply it by 150 to 200% for the real cost.

4.4 Mediocre

Mar 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean. That's about it. Everything else is wrong with this agency.

Cons:

They don't advertise they will force you to buy insurance at 20 pounds a day or you won't be able to take the car! In addition, when you pay with a non-UK credit card (which of course accepts pounds) they will convert themselves to pound sterling and rob another 3.5% of the total. Avoid them if you have the chance.

5.2 Fair

Apr 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was fine and the staff was friendly.

Cons:

The rental agency is in the Crown Plaza Hotel in Crawley far from the airport. The shuttle only comes once every 45 minutes so be sure to very arrive early not to miss your flight, and be prepared for a long cold wait at the bus stop.

Excessive overcharging. Additional charges for location pick up, spurious taxes and 3 times normal fuel charges. I would not use them again at Gatwick airport.

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car.

Cons:

We picked up the car at LONDON GATWICK airport and it would have been helpful if the girl who processed our pick up could have informed us about the LONDON CONGESTION CHARGE. We learned about it after driving in to London twice. You can pay the charge before going in to London and it is A LOT CHEAPER.. now we have to pay the fines AND PAY ENTERPRISE A 35 GBP processing fee per fine. I understand it is our responsibility to be aware of things but a little heads up would have been appreciated. Especially when we dropped off the car at Stansted and were told by the young man who processed the return that we should have been advised about the London Congestion charge.

7.2 Good

Oct 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Vehicle cleanliness and overall high standard of maintenance that was obvious from the beginning.

Cons:

Salesman used fear mongering and scare tactics in order to force an upgrade on the insurance coverage, ever after they had been shown a 3rd party full coverage proof of insurance. Salesman was manipulative and overall dishonest with regard to the percentage of all rentals returned with serious or 'dead-lining' mechanical damage for drivers who did/did not purchase the additional insurance coverage from the agency.

8.8 Very Good

Sep 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Price. efficiency of pick up and drop off. Color of car. Gas mileage. Looks of car (lots of amused comments). Size for traffic and city driving. Your staff were super helpful.

Cons:

Engine size - zero power. Enough for around town but on a long trip (London to Exeter) not good. Seats were not great for long ride - was glad to get out. BUT it did the job and we'll be back.

Pros:

The staff was polite and helpful.

Cons:

We waited for the Hertz shuttle at the airport for over 25 minutes before finally just taking a cab. We try to call them and got no answer. We also tried to use their FaceTime at the kiosk inside the airport, but we're unable to reach them.

  • Popular attractions like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, and the British Museum are located in different areas of London Having a hire car lets you easily reach all of these destinations during your stay. At nighttime you’ll also definitely want to check out the hip bars and nightclubs of Soho as well.
  • Gatwick Airport serves customers traveling in and out of Southeast England. For convenience, the airport partners with several car hire agencies to provide them with offices out of the south terminal. A few of the hire car companies operating out of London Gatwick include Sixt, Avis, Budget, and Europcar.
  • While driving in Gatwick you’ll have to become comfortable with driving on the left side of the road. Be sure to drive cautiously and within the speed limits during your stay. Unbeknownst to tourists, cameras are placed all around the city to monitor drivers. Along with speeding, they will also ticket drivers for illegal turns, texting while driving, or not wearing a seatbelt.
  • Traffic jams can be a problem in London. It is especially a challenge in the city’s center from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. To minimize this problem, congestion charge zones have been established. So, if you are driving in this area during business hours, you’ll have to pay a toll.
