Customer Ratings and Latest Reviews
Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental car. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.
Pros: Very friendly and professional.
Pros: car was in great condition, almost new, really good specs (in terms of phone connectivity ,entertainment, driving assistance, fuel efficiency), effect staff and drop-off procedure.
Cons: Although the car itself as in great shape, car type (vw t-roc) doesn't match with the Renault Kadjar model we chose. We realise it can be a similar car, but we knew the kadjar would be comfortable enough for 5 persons, the t-roc was rather small to be comfortable for 3 passengers on the back on long stretches, especially since that had to accommodate part of the luggage as well, which din't fit in the trunk (it did fit in the kadjar of our friends when we tested).
Pros: Very efficient and professional representatives.
Cons: I booked a compact category, got a station wagon. Was told it is the same category but that didn't make sense to me. Yet, I understand it was the Easter week and they looked a bit overwhelmed, yet remained polite and professional. For me it was a stressful having to drive a station wagon on the hilly narrow roads of Greek villages but I am experienced drive so all was ok. A novice driver may have found this a problem.
Pros: Polite staff, keen to engage with customers
Cons: The member of staff who conducted the pick-up check missed quite a few scratches and dents in the car. The car was delivered with a dashboard indication switched on and we were told to ignore. First-aid kit is mandatory in every developed country, yet it was missing from the car during pick-up, so we had to request one. Last, a shirt was forgotten inside the car, but we didn’t realise until the next day when packing our bags. Agent on the phone told us it was never retrieved.
Pros: Only the representatives
Cons: The car is no big deal don’t consider it safe and it’s filthy and it smells bad like an ashtray Unacceptable
Pros: Friendly and efficient. Great value for money. Great car.
Pros: Great transfer back when we got back.
Pros: Charming staff
Cons: High mileage vehicle , not as specified
Pros: Quick pick up and drop off process. No hidden or extra charges- I just paid what I had agreed on with my online reservation.I had reserved a compact car but was provided with a sedan at no extra cost. The car was clean and ran well:
Cons: The gas tank is only 1/8 full to start off. You’re charged a service fee and also the refueling fee if you return the car with less gas, but of course no refund if you have more gas. Chances are, you’d probably return the car with more than 1/8 of the tank full.
Pros: Fast and clean.
Cons: The car had eclectic malfunction. The tire pressure and oil indicators were lit all the time. This caused me to constantly check the pressure and oil
Pros: all was good
Cons: no rejects
Cons: The car had clearly been in several accidents and had not been repaired, the vehicle was old (2016 maybe), one of the headlights was burnt out, the vehicle felt unsafe over 115km/h (car would shake and vibrate) and had no power..ie acceleration was very slow with no torque. The key fob would not open the boot and the back seat had roll down windows ?!? For the cost of the rental, I could have purchased the same vehicle (Peugeot 301) in better condition and have money left over.
Pros: Easy to check out and in.
Cons: Not sure if the car should have had AC or not, but it didn't seem to work.
Pros: Friendly and efficient.
Cons: The crappiest car I've ever driven.
Pros: Everything was smooth and quick. Car was clean, new and people in Avance were nice and polite.
