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: At pickup at Catania airport they were initially very insistent on selling me more insurance. Described the insurance I had with you as "having no meaning." Wanted me to take insurance from them and get a reimbursement from you. After I politely refused several times, a more pleasant woman took over and insurance was not mentioned again. The car was not cleaned and was beaten up, but did the job. Drop off in Palermo was easy and efficient.
Cons: See above.
Cons: Arrived 2 hours prior to booked time due to flight time change and car was not available. The the car they did make available after coming back had many dents and scratches plus approx 70,000 km on the clock; it sounded very ropey but it do the job and was not problem for the trip. Hence Im marking them down for lack of flexibility on pick up and condition of car
Cons: Hard to find the office , first car had a broken usb port which meant no device charging and map reading etc. But upgraded for reasonable extra rate
Pros: Very efficient and did not push extra insurance or try to charge for any damages on return...
Cons: Price to reset the deductible costs not specified at the moment of the booking. I paid 27€/day to get a full insurance, I wish I had known earlier all the detailed costs and decide in advance.
Pros: Everything was smooth! Car was new (just 7500km).
Cons: Regulation is outdated when it comes to deposit on credit cards. There are other payment methods and with a free co-driver on the contract it is difficult to understand why not both drivers should be able to pay for a car.
Pros: Agents at Lamezia Terme airport and on Catania airport on dropping off
Cons: Online support. Car sometimes behaves weird when accelerating, not reacting to commands, needs to much time to speed up etc.
Pros: Was generally smooth service.
Cons: Took their opportunity to bend me over when presented.
Cons: I came 9:30 -car was ordered to 8:00. Ecovia said my order is canceled because I was late more then 2 hours..... which was a lie . Then asked for more money to get a car . Said "Call your broker if you are not satisfied ". You don't have a phone to call so I paid more money. It was very bad experience.
Cons: The time it took to process on pick up was nearly an hour;we were required to sign a contract that we hadn't seen before they would release car; and no-one accompanied us to find the allocated car which was blocked in rather than ready for us to drive away.It was like we had just turned up without any prior booking.Returning the car was almost as bad with nowhere to park.
Cons: The fuel policies must be full to full. We received a 3/4 and deliver back almost full :(
Pros: Very pleasant and kind agents.
Cons: Too long waiting for car due to some technical issues. But it was compensated by a great upgraded car at the same cost. So a great service anyway. Thanks a lot!!!
Pros: highly recommended: very helpful staff, the car was in perfect condition. fast pick up and drop off
Pros: Overall good experience
Cons: GPS did not work well, but that maybe simply be a reflection of outdated technology. We ended up using Google maps.
Cons: Charged for late pick up. Charged for additional insurance.
Pros: Easy picking up and droppping off. Quick check of the status of the car and immediate restitution of the caution fee
Cons: Attente à la livraison
Cons: For an 'eco' car rental company it's quite odd to give people a diesel car... The car was gross - it had not been cleaned. There was a lot of damage to the car.
Cons: Ecovia refused to accept my debit card for the full coverage (but could use it for 50% of it, which I still dont understand) and I had to buy an extra insurance for 339EUR (9 days). Basically this insurance cost more than the car rental itself (264EUR). Discovercars presented this credit card condition in a really hided place of the website (they promoted their own insurance which I bought for 30eur in a half page size, highlighted box. 30 vs 339. Really?
Cons: Although we had taken full cover insurance out with discover car, ecovia tried to sell more insurance and we found this quite disconcerting. On collection The car was full of dents and scratches , no water in window wash, tyre needed pumping up, unclean but apparently we were given a free upgrade! Received no instructions on cars gadgets and cars navigator which we paid extra for needs an update
Pros: It was efficient and fairly quick, especially the drop-off.
Cons: We didn’t like being made to pay extra for breakdown. This should have been covered as standard.
Cons: Personell not helpful
Pros: Good car, for good value for money.
Cons: Very slow security depot hold release.
Pros: Car cleanliness. Quite new car in good conditions so we didnt have any concerns of breakdown.
Cons: Whatever was written in the web sites, finaly they convinced us to buy zero deductible car insurance, so finaly the price was as in all the others. And we did not received the ordered car brand/model, but we expected that.
Pros: The engine heat lamp came on when I got to Mount Athena, I had to go back to the company, she asked me to go to the gas station to refuel and they changed my car. I wasted almost a whole day of the trip
Pros: It's very simple to find, very helpful and excellent car
Cons: When I return the car the process of checking took much more time without needed because they had not signed a search and they discovered then. Thanks God I had taken a photograph of the car once I picked up.
Cons: they claimed that i scratched the car, while i didnt. they used a 2.0 cm scratch on the left rear door to send me a claim of 156.40 Euros
Pros: Friendly staff, very new car which was also an upgrade, clear communication
Pros: The car was good so far, however the motor sounded unusual
Cons: Transparency during rental process. I ended up significant more expensive than announced. I don't see why I should pay 10% on the internet and then the full price + extras (which seemed to be included in the offer on the internet) again at the desk. Looks like scam.
Pros: The agents were friendly and responsive, and tried to make the process as smooth as possible.
Cons: It was a bit difficult finding and getting to the rental car outlet from the airport terminal exit, especially carrying heavy luggage. The location is awkward for walking.
Pros: Service at Ecovia Fontarosa (Catania) Airport was efficient and the staff friendly. We got a nice car
Pros: upgraded me to a better car
Cons: upon return, demanded 20 euros to clean a car that was clean. Said the renting office should have told me the car had to be car washed before return. It had 5 days on no rain and no off road driving. just bug splats. renting office never told me. could have cleaned myself for 3 euros.

Pros: Дадоха ни кола автоматик и по голяма от поръчанот.
Cons: The car was without AdBlu, for which we had to charge. The tire pressure sensor was constantly lit without any problems.
Pros: Agents was nice and followed the case quickly. They didn’t nudge for extra insurance.
Cons: They should change google maps pin of their location.
