Great car and pricing. Very nice counter service person. Extremely helpful and good at explaining thingsThe line was too long upon arrival and the system/reservation process could’ve been much more efficient by using modern technology a little more To speed things up.

The staff was fine. See issue below...I had an approved confirmation for my reservation. When I got to the airport, I was told by the Budget staff that my account is blocked (This did not know why) and therefore, they can't rent the car per the reservation. I had to rent a car in other company which cost me double the price. Really Bad.

Our salesman was helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable. He was also a great salesman and it was good that we upgraded the car and got the insurance. On the downside, we had to stand at the window with him for a very long time and there was no chair which doesn’t work for everyone and I’m one of those people. The pick up and drop off is a little tricky but perhaps unavoidable. The really bad part was that I locked the keys in the trunk of the car and customer service with the phone number was very very poor. It was clear we weren’t going to get anything done unless we went back to the office and spoke in person to our salesman. So that’s what my husband did – – he walked back to the Sixt office and then we got help. Once he did that everything was fine. We got a tow truck and the driver was able to get into the trunk.

The drop-off was a nightmare. They insisted I had to bring back the car before 5.30 pm because I hadn’t bought extra insurance. But then the office was closed, and I had to come back the next morning... On top of it they got really rude when I complained

OverchargedGenerally liked the car (Renault Espace), but it is an experience. No visible dials, buttons, etc on the dash board. Definitely requires someone to show you how things work before driving away, but there was no one available to help.Arrived in Nice and they did not have the car I requested (Citroen C4 or similar). Said only car I could have was a van, in a different price category and that I would have to pay the difference in rates. Attendant said she was new and didn't have the ability to waive the extra cost. To me this is unacceptable and I would like to request a refund of the extra charges. At that moment, you are a prisoner, tired after the journey to get there, and with less will to fight. Drop off in Paris very difficult as drop offs, as I learned trough experience, are only in parking garages with no indication that Europcar have operations in them. Drove around for hours before finding Montparnasse.

Staff friendly and helpfulThe Lyon drop-off address we were provided was wrong. Not slightly, completely. Entirely different block, in a garage with little-to-no signage, requiring an access code that we didn't learn about until we were able to get through on the phone, which also took some trying. Put us about an hour behind schedule.

Started great with an upgrade for free. Loved the car. But real unfortunate and bad ending as the company tried to charge us €500 for a very minor scratch that we did not do. Luckily my wife was still in town and went to see the car, upon which they reduced define to 100euros.
4.4 Okay19 Oct 2017
UnreliableThe car was fine.The car was made available via Herz. They did not recognize the rental as agreed , because it was with a different company (Dollar). They did not allow a 8pm dropp-off unless I bought their insurance (more than doubling the price). I had to pay for overnght parking and bring the car the next day. I bought insurance when booking the car, but Herz still had me sign liability for €15,000. In case of damage, I would be charged by Herz and would then have te try to claim crom the insurance. The resulting argument was a very unpleasant experience for my wife and daughter.

Car size we requested was not available. We ended us with a huge van which was difficult to park and manuvere around the small streets/parking spaces.
6.0 Good23 Aug 2017
Difficult to find rental agencyThe rental car office was impossible to find. The signs are small and located on a side street. There wasn't information given to inform us of the exact location. We called Dollar several times before drop off to figure out exact location at Nice railway and no one answered. It took over an hour to locate and drop off the car and keys. Very poor experience for someone who rents cars frequently in the states. They don't walk through the car drop off with you to make sure everything is ok before you leave them the keys.

Car pickup was easy, returning was another storyMy car was ready for me when I arrived in Aix-en-Provence and it was in great shape. I was very happy with it.The return process was not so simple. The garage to return the car was difficult to find at the main train station in Nice, France. I had to circle around the train station several times. A little more information on the location of the rental garage would've been helpful.

The staff was terrible. After being intentionally left behind by the shuttle driver, I could not reach the other staff because they simply would not answer the phone for 15 minutes. When they did answer, I was told they had no car for me even though I had an emailed confirmation of my reservation.Everything went wrong. The reservation was initially sent to me as being France when I had entered Florida as my destination. After I told the customer service agent to cancel France and reserve Orlando, Florida, I still received confirmation of a France rental that I did not want. When I arrived in Florida and showed my Ace Rental Florida confirmation to the shuttle driver, I was left out in the cold, dark night because he said he would not let me board the shuttle since I was not on his hand written list. He told me to call the office then drive away. Nobody would answer the phone for 15 minutes. When I finally got through they told me they had overbooked and there were no cars. They offered no assistance. I was stranded in the airport late at night and left to fend for myself.

Car hire excess insurance in Nice

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Nice car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Nice.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Nice car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Nice

  • Renting a car makes it easy for you to see many attractions throughout France. With a hire car you’ll be able to drive along the coast to marvel at the beautiful scenery or relax on the beach on the French Riviera. Having a car will also give you access to other towns like Cannes (known for its film festival) and Monte Carlo.
  • The Nice Airport is popular with tourists looking to visit the French Riviera. Several hire car companies have locations at the airport. Once you’re off the plane, simply go to the arrival hall where you will find most of the car hire desks in Terminal 1. A shuttle is available to get to car hire agencies located in Terminal 2.
  • Nice offers tourists a well-organized and advanced highway system for travel. Still, driving in Nice can have its challenges. First, drivers in Nice have a tendency to avoid using their turn signals, which can be rather dangerous. Consequently, you will need to drive with more alertness and be ready for drivers making sudden stops or turns. Additionally, throughout France there are several automated toll booths. Therefore you should have a credit card or cash (in euros) readily available.
  • When deciding what time to travel to enjoy the surrounding sights of the French Riviera, you’ll want to consider rush hour in and around Nice. Regular commuters typically drive to work on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and return home from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. During these hours you can expect to experience congestion and traffic jams.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Nice for €23 or less
  • Book your car hire in Nice at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Nice are around 80% cheaper than other car types, on average
