I didn’t like that they want you to take their insurance even though I bought insurance through Kayak. They pressure me on it for about 5 mins trying to convince me to pay more. I didn’t get the size car I paid for

It was nice to have a Wifi option, could be a bit less expensive however.staff was corteous and efficient.Lower cost options for the WiFi accessory would be nice, however a convenient option for sure.

2 hours to get the car!We did an upgrade to an Audi A3 cabrio. Excellent car! Giving the car back after was very fast and simple. Quick inspection and handed the key back. took less than 7 minutes!We had to wait 2 hours from when we arrived at the Europecar to finally get the car. The car they first wanted to give us had extremely wet seats like someone left eh roof opened while it rained for a long time. They said it would take 30 mins to change to another car as they needed to wash it, fill it with fuel. We got the car and it was night time so we couldn't really see. But the next morning we realised the car was very dirty, not washed at all. I took some photos and sent them an email. Never got a reply. We also had a problem with the roof and tried to call them once and was on hold for 30 mins and no-one answered.

The staff in the car park where more accommodating and helpful than the staff at front desk.The sales pitch that goes on even after booking for extra insurance meant a simple pick up lasted almost an hour. The impression that I would have to cover the first 800 Euro's, even though I had requested extra insurance, the statement that I would still be charged for paperwork, and that I should invest in extra insurances. They also did not offer any flexibility in the drop off time.

On the rental location I was in line for more the a hour, I did the pre check on pick up on line, The was no directions to avoid the line and pick, After 23 hours of travel you need to go home not one more hour of line.

Making up additional chargesI made a reservation with Goldcar because they came up on Kayak as the cheapest option. Soon after arriving at the front desk in Catania, Sicily, I understood why: their business model is to make up for a low initial quote with additional charges. Their first step is to relentlessly push for you to buy extra insurance covering damages, which would have double the initial cost. The lady at the counter could not stop insisting on how crucial it was for me to buy this extra insurance, 'because you know, things here do happen -it's particularly bad to go around with a car in Sicily...'. If you arrive at the pick-up station without additional insurance, they move to step two: your car will be found with scratches and you will be charged extra. When I arrived, I found a guy returning his car who was extremely frustrated, staring at his car and shaking his head in disbelief. A Goldcar employee insisted that there were scratches on the front of the car, however, I could not possibly detect any. A supervisor called for verification only reinforced the claim. It was a surreal situation: four people staring at the car, with the employee filling up forms and charging the renter 250 Euro for a phantom damage that no picture could possibly document. I offered the renter to be a witness in future court proceedings. Only then the employee relented and dropped the case, but at that point, I was very worry about my own rental. I was given a paper recording no scratches on my car, so i spent the next 30 minutes scrutinising the car and found a few faint traces that no doubt would have turned into charges. Then I spent the rest of the holiday worrying about the moment I would return the car. Never again.

Rental car counter added insurance and other charges we didn’t ask for. After a lengthy delay to return the car in Palermo, they charged us for an additional day.

No one answered the phone at Hertz in Catania for two days (these were weekdays). Another set of friends had the same experience. Our third couple waited over 3 hours for their car in Catania. I rented from Avis instead. Never again Hertz.

Long queues but good serviceVery efficient and helpful staff- 5 star people-Admin fee for small damage was appalling. A 45 EUR problem had a 50EUR Euro admin fee= crazy /rip off -poor stock levels for automatics; forced to take a 7 seater
3.6 Mediocre2017 May 28
Terrible ExperienceWe had to wait hours at the rental counter just to get our car because the Hertz employees worked incredibly slow and didn't care at all about customer service.
3.2 Mediocre2017 May 19
The pick location did not have computer service so hand wrote everything which took us over an hour just to get the car. Then apparently they wrote in and later entered into the system that our pick up time was an 1.5hrs earlier then we actually picked up the car (e.g. they indicated we picked up the car at 0930 which was before our plane even landed). We didn't realize this until we dropped off which then put us outside of the 24hr range. At the drop off location we also had to wait in line over a half an hour for them to check out the car. By the time we got to the counter we were showing a drop off time of 11 am. Since we were showing dropping off the car 1.5 hr past the 24 cut off, the drop off location (dif from pick up) decided to charge us an extra day. HOWEVER a DAYs rental would've only been about $10 somehow they managed to charge us an extra $70 and after an hour of disputing the charge at the counter and almost missing our outbound flights we were told there was nothing they could do.

Could have been a little friendlier and explain more nicely. The charged me twice the rate of the insurance and whatever budget office told me in the us didn’t Applied in the airport. They could have been more Accommodated and helpful
5.2 Okay2019 Aug 31
Waited in line about 3 hour, and then, budget manager, simply deceived me, twice, hidding taxes, fees and surchages and misled me on payment saying that this twice big amount is not a rental cost, but only an insurance deposit for the duration of the car rental.
9.2 Excellent2019 May 15
No problems in actual car collection or drop off.It was difficult to find the Budget collection area as there are many companies on top of each other.
6.4 Good2018 Apr 09
The chaos of Catania airport. There were a gazillion people there. The price was substantially more than I had expected to pay and the car was much larger as well (a real van!) which made driving in some areas a bit stressful.
4.0 Okay2016 Sep 18
Having rented many cars in the US, this was by far the slowest and overly complicated experience. It took over an hour and a half from arriving at the desk to finally receive car. They would only let the person who's name is on the reservation be the primary driver and pay for the car. Once I explained I made the reservation for my father who was standing with me with a valid driver's license and I would not be driving, they finally added him as a secondary driver for a $250 euro fee (which we got down to $125 and just accepted because we just wanted to get out of there). She kept taking the time to upsell us and not tell us the price impact until asked. Overall, it was just an extremely painful and slow process to just receive a car I had reserved weeks prior. I will not be returning or recommending Budget for future car rental needs in Catania.

As it is a major airport there are many car hire companies for you to choose from. The service desks are located very close to the airport terminal with vehicles on-site. Additionally, most companies are open between 08:00 and 11:00 and have after-hours pickup and returns.

  • During your time in Sicily you may wish to travel to some of the surrounding islands. Various providers will have different rules around whether you can take your Catania Fontanarossa Airport car hire onto the ferries or not. It may differ depending on which island you are travelling to and could require extra insurance. Hertz, for example, allows all its vehicles onto ferries. If extra insurance is not required, make sure you know which type of cover includes ferry travel so you know if you are covered.
  • Numerous providers will have different policies regarding returning your car hire to Catania Fontanarossa Airport. Read through your agreement carefully and ask any questions when you pick up your vehicle. Most companies will allow you to drop off your vehicle outside of their opening hours by placing the keys and paperwork in a drop box. However, some will need you to return the car during opening hours so they can check it for any damages. Larger companies may allow you to return your vehicle at a different location if you are leaving via an alternative airport or ferry.
