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: FAST AND HONEST
Cons: The fiat 500 was not available, but there were 2 at the parking space
Pros: Was ok!
Cons: I expect to unlock the depozit.
Pros: Nothing. They didn’t have the car we ordered and they claimed discover cars had cancelled it because we were “late”. Eventually they gave us an inferior car and charged us an extra €25 per day as our credit card expired in 5 months, despite us already buying insurance. A complete scam
Cons: I didn’t like anything about them. I would warn everyone to stay clear of this outfit. They clearly didn’t stick to a contract of what has been booked.
Pros: Returning is very easy, and the female staff is very kind.
Cons: The desk is quite a walk from the airport. There is no mention of that in the rental contract. Also, the male staff only gave us bad suggestions
Cons: Awful company
Cons: Picking car take longer, 'cose staff not focus on you, they trying to fix other customers problems.
Pros: Costumer services and car options
Pros: It was a smooth check in, they did offer further insurance but we already had the comprehensive through discover cars. The car was close to new and very clean. The check out process was very easy.
Cons: The desk was hard to find at catania airport.
Pros: New car, well cleaned, fast pickup, staff at counter very polite and explained everything.Had to return the car to another location due to flight cancellation and extend the rental time, no problem at all, everything went smoothly
Cons: It took exactly 2.5 hours to pick up the car from the rental desk at the airport. There was no where to wait inside, so we had to wait outside under the sun at the peak heat of the day. Also, They accidentally charged me EUR 250 by card, then they apparently reimbursed me, and then they charged me approx 550 again after but in two separate payments. Overall, very confusing experience, and when i tried to get an explanation of why im making so many payments - they would get very frustrated.
Pros: ECCELLENTE NOLEGGIO. Grazie
Pros: macchina ok
Cons: non possibilità di pagare con Amex
Pros: It was OK
Cons: we would have had to wait over an hour to get someone to look at the car when we returned it because there was only one person dealing with returns and there were 6 people in front of us - two days later and I have received no communication from Viaggiare and my deposit remains blocked
Pros: Nice staff, quick pick-up, drop-off
Pros: New clean car
Cons: The time I spend waiting for the pick up and also the policy of the company about the deposit.
Cons: they tried to scam me and weren't so kind to us
Pros: waiting in line for an hour to pick up a reserved car. Out of three staff, one is working. That's what I call Italian comfort, relaxed, not overworked.
Cons: the need to pay the deposit by credit card in the driver's name is total nonsense. My wife has a credit card and you can't use it, you don't want cash. you offer to pay with a debit card but with meaningless extra insurance, the price is doubled. You're thieves.
Pros: great service
Cons: check in took to long
Pros: Value was ok
Cons: Online check in collection was not provided. Possible scam attempted by agent when dropping off vehicle . (I will email discovery cars and explain)
Cons: Absolutely terribly slow service and huge issues with checkin in with not concern for helping us what So ever
Cons: Little bit slow due to clients not having correct information, not companies fault
Cons: Horrible service, summarized in "if you don't like it, go somewhere else"
Cons: Viaggiare car rental agency has extremely poor service. The staff is unfriendly, they don't answer emails or phone calls, they speak English very poorly. They claimed that their agency was at the airport in Pelermo, but it wasn't. The agency is several kilometers from the airport.The baby seat was full of ants and we got a very dirty car inside (seats).They changed our baby seat.At the end they said we had to pay for the car clean.Fortunately, we took pictures of of the car when we picked it up.
Cons: They did'nt accept the full coverage i had paid to discover car,their broker, and they charged 260euro more only for insurance ,so it costed to me 500euro to rent a small car for 7 days.SHAME on everybody!!
Cons: very poor - unable to contact them by phone for hours when the car developed a fault. on returning the car they were extremely rude not accepting there was a fault and then we waited over 3 hours for a replacement car, even though when we had eventually got through on the phone they said they would have another car waiting. check in takes over 40 minutes per person and only 2 agents who chat constantly. drop off was the same.hired many cars and never has it taken 40 minutes to give it back.
Cons: Cancelled my car rental as my flight was delayed as were all flights into Catania that morning due to volcanic activity on Mt Etna
Pros: Bad experience !
Cons: The staff was very not helpful , we was requested to come back in 1 hour to pick up the car ..even if it was 8 AM and the car was available . very bad experience . Actually i did option for other company . who gave me the car in 10 min .

Cons: you did not mention that if you are late on picking the car you have to pay
Pros: Car was great (Opel Corsa), very economic. 1100 km for only 1.5 tanks (€100 gas)

Cons: I was late about 1h25min due to the flight delay. For this I was imposed a penalty of 50 EUR, even though I was present in the normal working hours of the office.

Cons: Van broke down
Pros: The representatives were very helpful and friendly.
Pros: Good prices, new cars and friendly staff
Cons: Nothing to complain
Cons: Was led to believe I had full insurance coverage to which I paid extra for but upon pick up of car it cost me about the same price of the hire of the car Also had to put up with 2 people in front of me arguing about the same thing
Pros: Not much, they solved my need and that's about it.
Cons: 1. Hard to find office 2. Incapable agents at the desk, even with web check-in it took 1.5hours to take my car. They didn't even explain where to drop-off the keys when the rent is over, or how to get in touch and were very unresponssive (didn't answer at all) when I contacted them about issues on the road via whatsapp. 3. Car was not washed, had a malfunctioned dashboard which they promised they would solve by sending me a password and they didn't, so I didn't even have radio or A/C controls...
Pros: Easy return
Cons: Didn't get the right car, got a smaller one. "you can have this one or none, we don't have what you asked for in stock"
Pros: Nice car we were upgraded
Cons: It says that the pi k up is from the terminal and it is not! Very hard to find outside of the terminal
Cons: The service was terrible.
Cons: They spent so long checking us in, were on the phone to other people for 15 mins. While we waited. Then they charged us a penalty because our plane was late. They may be cheap to start with but you pay for it in the end.
Pros: Clean car in good condition. Staff was friendly. Convinced us to get full insurance coverage- glad we did because we got scraped in a parking lot. Verbally fine
Cons: Rental office wasn’t easy to find. Took 1 1/2 hours to rent the car with 2 renters in front of us. Return was fine
Pros: Cleanliness of the car.
Cons: 1. Office IS NOT in terminal! It's outside the airport. 2. Long pick-up time. 3. Not the same car as reserved. 4. Staff was not friendly.
Cons: the take 61 EURO just because I receive a fine.
Pros: I was very satisfied with car and provided services.
Cons: Rude and lazily staff who served us. Never again
Pros: The car was cheap.
Cons: The car had damage that was not indicated. The windows were dirty, there was no window washer fluid in the tank.
Pros: The Car is new
Cons: Good service
Pros: Very low price for a good small car. Easy pick-up and drop-off.
Cons: Quite a lot of paperwork at the desk as everything could already be checked out online, so we had to wait some time at pick-up.
Pros: Viaggiare were helpful and straightforward during the picking up. Not much time spent there.
Cons: 1) I couldn't easily find the office. 2) They gave me the key and they send me to find the car at the parking (small parking though but not very easy to find) 3) That maybe is not Viaggiare's fault but I asked for full insurance via Discover Cars, I had to pay another 200 Euros to have the full insurance. No one told me that.. And in a place like Sicily its important to know these things.
Pros: Size of the car
Cons: It was extremely disorganised, took a very long time. On return the agent said we had put a scratch on it but we were able to prove otherwise with a video we took at the start.
Cons: Only one clerk on reception
Pros: Very,very slow pick up. Even the were few representatives in the office and only 3 clients in the queue. Dirty cars with lots of scratches and damages. Make sure you mark all of the existing scratches. And some cars were missing aerials. So make sure you point out everything. Drop off again. No one at the spot. When ask been told..leave the car and make pictures!!! Didn't like the service.
Cons: Hybrid car!
Cons: A cheating agency.
Pros: pleasant people - patient
Cons: Catania airport Viaggiare were incredibly slow both at check in and at return! they were the slowest car hire desk I've ever come across, and unfortunately (maybe because of their keen pricing) had many customers fuming in a long queue waiting to be dealt with. Their slow computer system didn't help.
Pros: Good price
Cons: Really poor signs at the airport for returning car, no one designated for checking cars back in. The staff on the desk had no concern for the long queue and people had flights to catch - really really poor service returning the car.
Pros: Il personale molto professionale
Cons: I tempi di attesa per il ritiro dell'auto
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: The whole process took 1,5 hours to pick up the car. You had to take a number and then i turned out they didnt work with a number, so we kept waiting while others skipped the line. We had to pay for a carseat for our baby, that turned out to be broken. And they also didn’t want to help fixing it in the car or even bothered explaining how it works to fix it. In the end another car rental company helped us. It was a absolute disaster. Dont even get me started about giving the car back.
Pros: The car was in good condition and fuel efficient. But....
Cons: I supposed to pay an extra 150 euros from the total of 220 which was the rental agreement. Instead i paid 400 euros extra. The reason was i didnt had a credit card (They knew from before I am only having a debit card). They should not sign the agreement and i would find other way to rent a car. I didnt had time to argue because they would destroy my trip and unfortunately paid the price. What is more is they kept a 250 euro deposit which i still waiting to be released. Not again in viaggiare...
Pros: Poor customer service attitude
Cons: Information was difficult to find
Pros: The car was very near the desk. The agent was clear with the options
Cons: It took more than one hour to take the car. The queue was long because not all stands were populated. Every client was handled long time
Pros: Friendly and helpful team
Cons: I can’t fault them. Lovely service
Pros: very comfortable car
Cons: increase of refundable security deposit without giving a reason
Pros: Hi I hade a very bed expireance with the rental.. Start by this that the change my program wile I was there. I hade to pay more them what you estimated. Discover rent car charge me and the rent car didn't diduct it from the total price. I hade to pay more then what I was apouse to pay.
Pros: The agents have been very kind and professional
Cons: The price was to high, the time at the car pick up has been too long and the insurance guidelines are not clear at the moment i rent the car online, only the agents showed me clearly how the condition really were
Pros: Car upgrade

Pros: They very nice and friendly

Pros: Personnel incompétents
Cons: rude staff, zero helpfull, trying to tell me a fist panda is an upgrade from a fiat 500
Pros: Very efficient and polite.
Pros: Antonella was very sweet and effective! Great service.
Cons: The usual sale pitch that all car rental firms do on extra insurance
Pros: Sehr netter Kontakt, sehr zuvorkommend und informativ. Das Auto hat für unseren Zweck optimal gepasst. Gerne wieder.
Cons: Unfortunatelly our plane was late, so we didn''t get till planned pick up time. Viaggiare canceled our reservation, didn't want to find compromise. In the end, they offered to make new reservation through them, what was more expensier, we didn't got full coveregare as it was offered through Discovercar. Unfortunately, we got to pay more. Please make a note with a big bolt letters, if you are late more than 2 hours for pick up, this service provider will cancel your booking.
Pros: Kind helpful staff.
Cons: International license requirements should not be sprung on you for the first time at car pick-up!
Pros: Rental staff was helpful.
Cons: Gave me an underpowered Fiat Panda Hybrid that was inadequate for climbing hills anywhere and dangerous for highway travel.
Pros: La simpatia degli addetti
Cons: La riconsegna frettolosa e la pressione per fare l'ulteriore polizza casco.
Pros: Nothing . From start they push you to buy things that you don't need using scaring techniques.
Cons: The contract ,their lies and the fact that they tried to scam me with the petrol . Wrote on the contract that the car had half tank when I picked the car up the tank was empty. And as you well know I left a lot of petrol when I returned the car but they refused to give me my money back . Scammers !!!!
Pros: When they knew we would arrive post closing time they kept open for us. Very helpful staff
Pros: I have lost all faith in car rental industry. I would not use Viaggiare again. Dishonest staff trying to get more money from me.
Cons: Dishonest staff trying to take more money from a hardworking doctor on holiday with his family and friends. I would not use Viaggiare.
Pros: Sadly I have lost faith in the car rental business because of Viaggiare
Cons: As above. Dishonest team who have charged me extra money.
Cons: Aggressive and intimidating. We were totally ripped off and forced to pay more than double
Pros: Very helpful
Pros: Cleanliness of the car
Cons: Absolutely difficult to find!!! Performance of the agent and time spent in the office - 45 min!!!
Cons: Very slow check in. Forced to pay for full insurance.
Pros: quick service
Cons: all the extra charges in order to bring down the excess even though I had previoulsy bought a cover on discover cars website
Cons: extra pay for cleaning and insurance extremely expensive
Pros: Not much
Cons: I was forced to pay a substantial amount for an additional full insurance as they don’t accept AMEX credit cards, and were not willing to take the deposit from my debit card which had sufficient funds. They rental desk was difficult to find and the car was the most basic one I have ever rented.
Cons: no asistance on insurance procedure. Just pick up the money was everything done from your side.
Cons: De motor van de auto was versleten de communicatie was heel slecht en we moesten daar opnieuw reserveren omdat alleen de naam van de bestuurder een creditcard moest hebben we hebben honderdeb euro’s meer moeten betalen dan dat we vooraf dachten
Pros: Nice car
Cons: Hidden charges, double price if you don't have a credit card while discover cars allows your reservation with a debit card only
Cons: The conditions on the insurance coverage was not clear at all. We had an incident and we had to pay for the one day that the car was stopped, and we had to clean full of glasses and take the car back to the airport.
Pros: they gave us a bigger car for the same money and the waiting time for the pick-up was a little too much (possibly because we were 3 drivers)~30 minutes
Cons: the car was dirty inside and outside, but in the end it was ok, because we were at the seaside and there was some sand in the car, but it didn't matter too much
Pros: quick delivery
Cons: I was insistently asked to subscribe an additional insurance for car damages. The desk person insisted on saying that damages to car (i.e. when left at park) were not covered by the DiscoverC insurance I subscribed. I tried to contact Disovercars for clarifications but it was not available. 6 days later I received an email from Discovercars helpdesk, explaining that car damages were actually covered by the insurance I subscribed with DC. I find the atttitude of Viaggiare simply unfair
Pros: the only thing was, that i had no problem with car.
Cons: Te service, the lady lady behaving in an absolutely unacceptable way, rude, disturbing, screaming. I complaing to another person when I was returning the car. She explained "maybe she nad bad Day". So I hale question if you care more about your Staff ten about clients. I come to Italy every year and rent a car. How you are going to assure me that next time the service will be polite and professional
