Car broken and perfect service.I liked two things about Avis 1) Originally I booked car via Rentalcars.com. They had confirmed my booking and 1 day before pick up they cancelled it without even sending me email or letting me know! I chat with their support and they said: Sorry, we cannot help you. WTF?! So I had to arrange everything after arrival - at Avis counter there was very nice guy with fluent English that helped us a lot finding a good deal that would be similar to original booking. Thanks again Mr. Francisco P.! Great help! 2) Our car got some engine issue by the end of our trip in the middle of the national park. Avis call center was helpful and they brought us new (much bigger car) in several ours with no question or extra charge. So: Avis rulez - I will use it again next time Rentalcars.com sucks - never more

Wont take a debit cardRefused me service even though I agreed to a $5000 hold on my debit card. Had to take a 6 hour cab ride for $275. Thanks for leaving me stranded at the Quito airport at 4 AM Avis!

Bait and switchNothing about this experience to likeAvis does not honor rentals done through Kayak. Avis don't recognize the car size that Kayak gave me or the insurance I signed up for through Kayak. I ended up spending almost 3 times the amount that quoted through Kayak. I will never do business with neither Avis nor Kayak again. The burrito with a competitive market place is that I choices. I will do what I can to spread the word so other people don't need to experience the same

Car was nice and employees were friendly.More expensive than the estimated total. Insurance and unlimited miles added 30% on top of the expected cost.

Staff were very accommodating, considering our late drop off after the office was closed.Drop off location was difficult to find, though close to the airport (no road signage).

Extorted for car price when we landed in QuitoThe SUV was clean and comfortable.We had reserved a car for $197.43 and few months prior to the trip and had received an email confirmation two days prior to our trip, however when we landed in Quito we were told at the counter that the price of our car was in fact over $1,300. It was too late to change our plans and book a flight instead of drive, thus we we forced to rent the car for only a few days for around $600 and then figure out public transportation for the rest of our trip.

Did not end up renting a car. Still got charged for insurance. Many fees and credit card holds that were never mentioned until I was at their desk. Very shady operation.
8.4 Excellent2016 Dec 30
Service was good and the car was clean and adequate.There is a choice between $15 per day insurance or a $5,000 security deposit that is not returned for two weeks following rental.

Reservation was pointless.The state of the car, cleanliness, size for our needs.When we arrived, there was no car available and we had to come back to the airport 6 hours later, spending more money on the taxi and inconvenience of returning. In general, it was expensive.
4.4 Okay2018 Dec 09
Dissappointed.See dislikes.Where do I start? Of all the available rental companies, I chose Enterprise for its brand recognition because i understand that you get what you pay for. In this case, paying top dollar did me no good. First, I reserved an automatic transmission SUV. They did not have an automatic vehicle nor an SUV available. All they had was one manual pick up truck. I haven’t driven stickshift in nearly a decade, let alone in a mountainous region. That made me very nervous during our road trip from Quito to Guayaquil and the three cities between. Second, I wanted an SUV to keep my surfboard bag inside the vehicle for security purposes as well as shielding it from the rain. So now at every stop we made, I had to take a drenched surfboard coffin and put it inside the vehicle which created a moldy smelling bag and musty scented truck cab. Next, the vehicle had no windshield wiper fluid. Imagine driving at night around winding roads along mountains with cliffs that drop off well over 300 yards and trying to clean the windshield covered in dust/dirt/debris mixed with rain; not a pleasant experience as using the wipers merely blurred our vision. Lastly, I paid an extra $90 for the week for a GPS device. One would expect that this device would be updated...clearly my expectations were too high for a simple task. We tried routing to commonly visited locations like Baños but the GPS had no idea how to get us there. I am extremely disappointed that our HONEYMOON adventure was hindered by this rental experience as we genuinely had concerns for our safety, security and well being.

Unadvertised super-expensive insurance. Charged for extra day even though they said they wouldn't. Couldn't get their 'satellites' to unlock our car. Car locked keys inside it.

Staff was very friendly and efficient.When I picked a category it showed Ford Edge or equivalent. I got Nissan Kicks, which is definitely not comparable. The car was very sluggish on the hilly highways in Ecuador where I vacationed. The price was the same, though.

Clean & Nice Car, but watch hidden fees.The car was nice and exactly as we had reserved. Great customer service. Easy to get to from the airport by shuttle.Required insurance and would not accept the prepaid insurance we bought through Kayak. You also only get 100KM per day, so extra charges can add up.

When dropping off the car at the Budget lot there wasn’t an employee working. The doors were locked and it was only 8am. We were told to wait five minutes and after 30 we brought the car to the airport departures area and had to leave the keys with the Budget desk. Who also had employee working.

HERTZ is by far the Worst & Most Pathetic Customer Service.From the begging of the rental, it was a disaster. Two hours into the trip the AC went out in he car. I called their support number only to be made to wait 2 hours so they could send a guy without tools to put his hand infront of the vent and confirm that the AC did not work. Then to be told they dis not have another car to give me. When I finally arrived at Guayaquil (where they had another car for me 240 miles away) the people at the counter had left more than 10 minutes early and forced me to lose an extra day. But the best part was the way Ivan Quillupangi (fleet manager), tried blaming me for scratches on a car that were marked on the paperwork pre-rental and for three tire blow outs due to low air pressure (that was also marked on the paperwork). Not only that but questioning why I changed out the tires intead of calling, even after I advised that the tires blew in an area with no reception at 11:00pm on the side of a mountain. I liked the way that when I told them the brakes in the car were pulsating the response from them was that it was impossible because they had just changed them; however, they left the old brake rotors that were warped and caused the pulsating and lack of stopping power. I liked that once I got back to their Guayaquil office and showed them all this they said that although they can see what I am telling them, the guy on the phone 250 miles away that can't see says different that the proof of pictures, paperwork and items present. When I claimed the scratches were on the paperwork, they said that it was a "misprint" when I showed them the warpage on he brake rotors they pretended not to understand telling me the brakes had been changed. when speak My if the tires they said well you could have hit something and when I asked them to show me what exactly makes them say that or to show me on the tire or rim any impact point, they simply shrugged and said that that is what the guy from Quito (who'd never seen me or the car) said. Last but not least they expected me to provide good customer service by taking the car to and from the airport for inspections. Lastly when I got to the airport they did not have a comparable vehicle for me (7 passenger SUV) and merely had a compact, and expected me to provide a new deposit (after having given $2,400.00 on the current car). In short I was left at the airport stranded without a car. To add insult to injury Hertz ecuador has nothing to do with Hertz US.

Car broke down in 20 minutes of pick up and ridiculed in spanishNothingEverything was horrible. Service, the quality of cars were miserable. the first car that I got broke down within 20 minutes in the middle of the highway and the replacement refused to go above 40 km/hr. The customer care giggled throughout my panic stricken phone call when the car broke down in the middle lane of a highway when cars were moving at 90km/hr. The engine started emitting smoke. The local agency officials giggled and ridiculed me, in Spanish language assuming that I do not understand anything, for being a women driver. I had to ask them to stop and remind them that I do understand the language even if I do not speak it. Then the giggling and smiling stopped. They refused to return the car before the contract was up. But I could not drive the car cause it was in such a bad condition. They have sexists employees who spent more time making fun of me than trying to solve the problem. I had to leave the car at the location without any written acknowledgement for the return and file an official complain with both Thrifty and better business bureau to get my money back including the deposit which should have been returned with the car. I finally went to Avis who gave me a car in a perfect condition which could easily be driven even in mountainous roads.

Thrifty at Quito airport is a rip off!!The size of the Chevy Spark makes it very easy to park.The insurance price was double the price of the car. That and I already have car insurance, Geico, that covers my driving in other countries. I did not want the Thrifty Insurance but the agent would not negotiate. Said that I had to take Thrifty's. The 100k per day mileage limit is ridiculous. I ended up driving 660km in five days so they charged me an extra $40, 25 cents a km, such a rip off. Also the car they gave me, Chevy Spark, was terribly on hills. Almost had two different accidents sliding downhill. My advice rent an automatic in Quito from a more reputable rental agent like Hertz.
4.0 Okay2017 Mar 31
Worst car rental ever!!!1) There was no address for the various Thrifty agencies in Quito on the rental agreement, we couldn't get in touch with anyone, so we spent an hour and lots of taxi dollars trying to find an office. Then, 2) when we finally found one, they said, "Oh, the $72 you paid Kayak for insurance is INTERNATIONAL insurance, which we don't accept (here in Ecuador, presumably), so we had to pay of new insurance to the tune of $150 or so. 3) Then, to top it all off, they said we could only drive 800 kilometers in eight days, or we'd have to pay 25 cents a kilometer above that. A terrible experience.

Most Pathetic Rental Experience I've Ever HadVan was decent once we finally got it.Thrifty in Quito did not have the van we reserved once we showed up at the airport at 10 PM, they gave us no warning before hand. They 8 of us drive to Guayquil, 6 hours out of our way to get it. After we returned the van, they charged us $830 for the miles we put on the cars initially to go get the van. Customer service in Ecuador has been ignoring my requests for a refund. Do not use this rental service.

Check out took over an hour because the list the reservation. The car was old and in very bad shape. The windshield wipers were useless, only a few controls worked. The suspension was shot. The lights were not aimed correctly and were so dim that they were useless. When turning (like a U) the steering shook, clunked, and there was griinding. The brakes were good. The radio worked ok but it was so worn that all the markings were gone so you had to just push buttons to find what you wanted. It was clear the car had be wrecked and repainted (and not well). I called the same day to try to replace this very UNSAFE car but they refused. I had to pay for taxis because the rental car was NOT safe to drive. I tried for three days. Finally I just ran out of time, had to book a flight to get back home, and pay to have the car towed back. Also they don't tell you this but you are forced to pay for THEIR insurance regardless of whether or not you carry your own or they "hold" $7000! Even with all that they still force you to pay a $1000 "deposit". So to recap, do NOT use this company, not only are they a complete rip off but you take your life in your hands with the UNSAFE car and they will NOT help if there are any issues. You are just on your own. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!

They charge you for an extra insurance which is crazy expensive and they don’t solve your problems. Also Kayak charges you for an insurance that isn’t even valid with europcar. Worst experience ever with Europcar and Kayak
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 31
Total bait and switch scenario and outright cheats and liars. They didn’t have our car available and said come the next day. When we complied the next morning they told us since we didn’t pick up the car, our reservation was not valid and we had to pay off the street rates. When presented with the prepaid reservation and evidence of the attempted pickup the night before, they still tried to charge a late fee. Then all the add on charges came one after another. We argued for over an hour to get the agreed prepaid pricing. Then they still didn’t have the car we reserved. We waited 3 hours and were forced to take one in manual despite reserving an automatic. With help of local Ecuadorian friends, a day later and 2 days after the original reservation date an automatic car was finally delivered. We were told the fee for differed drop/pick points would be waived for our inconvenience. However at drop they not only charged us a fee but also claimed damage we didn’t cause and had different photo images taken before than after but not the same areas of the car offered as “proof” and I’m now battling it out with my credit card company as I paid for their insurance but somehow my $455 prepaid car rental resulted in an over $2000 bill! It was parked in a private, guarded and in building garage at a private residence. This has been the worst experience ever! I totally feel like they saw a white gringa and dollar signs and did all they could to try and take advantage of me. So disappointing. Supervisors and managers have been of no assistance. Awful experience start to finish and will never rent from them again and suggest you don’t either!

N/AI did not rent from them. I reserved through Kayak but when I showed up they would not recognize the car insurance that I carry through my credit card. They did not disclose that the mandatory insurance practically doubles the price of the booking. It would have been an additional $245 on top of the car rental and they would not back down. Total scam! My credit card insurance has been recognized all over the world in other rentals and I have over $20K limit available on that card in case of damages. They thought they had me over the barrel but luckily I've lived in town for a bit and was able to ask around and snag a rental from a private company for HALF the cost — all insurance and car seats included. I will never recommend Europcar to anyone because I feel that it's completely dishonest to charge MANDATORY insurance and not disclose that at time of booking.

Car booked was not available (actually turned out was never at that location- was being used as a shuttle vehicle for the employee at the airport Car was poorly maintained (engine check light on, intermittent fault with remote locking key fob that set the alarm off).

nothing!!! This place is a scam, they give you a broken beat up car then try to make you pay for all the damage that was already there!not scam people and be honest about the fact that they rent cars that are already pretty well damaged, it's literally impossible to capture every single bit of the damage that already existed on the car, so of course they can point to something that wasn't specifically photographed. Especially when they completely neglected to take photos of the ENTIRE front of the car which had by far the most damage prior to me renting it. WOW what a dishonest company!
