Pros: Service, price , quality of car
Cons: All good
Pros: The agent told me 2 different numbers for the tolls. He lowered the number when I told him I was paying by credit card. He did not give me a receipt for the tolls. When picking up the car the agent asked for extra insurance when he knew everything was paid for. Also, he said he would email the rental documents but I received it 8 days later only when I messaged asking for them.

I bought full insurance but when i want tonget the car ,they tried to sell insurance to me again ,so be careful. I dropped the car to the guy from office and everything was ok and he said no paper needs ,the day after that ,they send massage that the windshield is broken and i have to pay 4000 lira for that,just like that and i have to accept that

Pros: The whole process was easy
Cons: The agent doesn't know English The insurance deposit amount was lager than what we have in the contract (currency exchange) The agent told me that he will charge me 100 turkish Lira because I returned the car unclean I was a tourist and the weather was rainy during my stay in Istanbul how can return the car washed and clean!
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Everything was good
Cons: The best
Pros: First of all he doesn’t know English, I was struggling to find the I was help less when I call him he started to ask my credit card driving license etc some one a local girl helped me talk him after 2 hours of I came out from airport he brought the car then he took us at his office which was about 10 kilometres he doesn’t know English no contract been given just he got my signs on his mobile phone. Before he handed over car repeatedly he asked tip in pounds or dollars.
Cons: Car was new but very basic no A/C and no gps built in and it was completely dirty car inside
Pros: Professional staff. Timely pick up.
Cons: The car was unclean with awful smell. The fuel was almost zero. We had to fill the tank at the airport itself.
Pros: Nothing at all they were Unprofessional people
Pros: I liked nothing. They wanted to force me to take not one,but two insurances even though insurance is not obligated. In the end I refused to take the car ,but they took my money anyway. They are bunch of thieves. Don't rent a car from them
Pros: Easy drop-off, done in two minutes directly at the terminal. Gentle people overall, no bad feelings despite the issues encountered. Maybe we were just unlucky, I wouldn't say to avoid them, the price was good.
Cons: I had booked a sedan (Aegea or similar) and they tried to give me a compact (Clio). After much insisting (and a call to DiscoverCars) they agreed on giving another car, which had an issue with left rear tyre losing pressure. Also they insisted A LOT on selling the extra insurance despite me repeating that I was already covered by DiscoverCars additional coverage (which I had already paid for). Remark: no documentation given, or receipt for the money paid. Not a great experience.
Cons: It was hard to find the representative in the airport
Pros: Very bad customer service
