GreatDidn’t have the class exactly as we booked but after a little back and forth we found a good solution. Car was neatly clean and great to drive, excellent value for money.

Very easy and smooth experienceIt was a lovely car in good condition, very good value for the money. The lady at the desk was helpful and polite, picking the car up and dropping off were very easy and smooth processes.By the time the chap got to us to explain the finer details of the car's workings we had already figured it out.

Will rent with Kayak/Sixt again.The reservation, pick up and drop off process was incredibly smooth. We were greeted warmly by the rental staff and they were very helpful in answering all our questions. Upon our return I was met in the garage by a very friendly staff person who swiftly guided me through the return process which was accomplished without a hitch.

Trap!Car was not reliable. Car model is lousy and it is not good on highways. The police fined us for a lack of tag and SIXT did not warn about tags that we must have it around EU. SIXT is irresponsible careless and refused to resolve this problem.

Gave away carNothingHertz in Salzburg gave away our rental car because we arrived too late in the day. Apparently we only had an hour window period to pick car up. Had to rent another more expensive car. Also the insurence purchased through kayak did not cover anything. So had to purchase additional insurance through hertz. Terrible experience. Will be contacting hertz and kayak to formally complain.

Salzburg Hertz car rentalNice car, Opel CorsaA trainee helped me and took very long. I took insurance via you with Allianz, because it was not with Hertz, I had to give an extra €1000 hold on my credit Card which will only be released in 10 days from now....this is totally unacceptable, but there is no choice once you want to have the car.

I rented an intermediate Ford Focus or similar from the airport and was offered the BMW Mini Cooper on arrival, which turned out to be really fun to drive and comfortable. The check in process was easy. We were not gouged an exorbitant amount for required insurance. We returned the car right at closing and they let us leave the car for them to process in the morning. We were charged the correct amount without any problems.Everything was great.

They do not look out for the safety of your childrenWhen we arrived the Budget attendant saw that I had young children but did not offer booster seats for them. In the USA they would not need the seats, but in Europe apparently they do. That lesson cost us 436 Euros and loss oh half our vacation in Salzburg. The Police were even outraged that Budget would allow us to leave with out proper booster chairs. I understand that we are visitors and we should have done research on the booster seat requirements, so we do take some of the blame. I have tried to contact Budget to see if they would at least reimburse me the rental, which was half the cost of the fie, but they have denied my request. I will not rent from Budget/Avis again.

Took forever to get our rental car. There was a new person, her first time working alone, which was not problem. But it was when the computer system crashed, and lost our reservation was the problem. We were in a foreign country, trying to communicate in another language. It took almost 2 hours to get our rental.

Customer service. We wanted to shorten our reservation to 4 days with drop-off by 12:29 pm July 6. I called toll 1-800# & was told to call local # we rented from. I called there numerous times. each time the woman said she was very busy and to call back later then hung up.many more problems....

Somewhat better pricing than other car rental agencies. No problem with picking up in Salzburg and dropping off at Munich airport (i.e.: a one-way rental). Very capable and cordial rental agent in the Salzburg office.All European car rentals seem to be insanely expensive, as compared with American agencies. I don't think it's just the higher taxes. A mystery.

Insurance was included at booking time but Hert did not accept it and we need to make a new one. This was 50% of car price!!
8.0 Excellent2018 Aug 24
Nice car, fairly easy pickup and drop off. Employees were helpful and efficient, even while dealing with many other matters.As always with rentals, it actually costs so much more than is advertised with taxes and insurance, etc. Plus “Dollar” was nowhere to be seen on the building, only on the paper we signed. I’m sure there are good reasons for this but it always feels strange to me.

Nobody thereOn Saturday morning there was nobody at the drop-off location. I was supposed to key-in a code at the key drop box but none had been provided on the rental agreement that I could find so I had to e-mail their Vienna office confirming that I had, in fact, returned the car on time. I also noticed that the clock at the drop-off box was an hour fast, which would, I suppose, make it look like cars were returned late when they were returned on time.

Excellent car but terrible support serviceThe car was very good. A recent model, with low mileage on the clock and a high level of equipment.The car was booked with Alamo. The details advised me to pick up the car at the Enterprise desk at Salzburg Airport and when I arrived the car was provided by Buchbinder - confusing isn't it. The car was very good. However, I had a minor incident on the road which caused irreparable damage to a tyre . I was able to fit the spare wheel - with a "spacesaver" tyre that had a maximum speed limit of 80kph (50 mph) - and I continued my journey to my hotel. From my hotel I tried to contact the hirer, using the number given on their scanty information pack. Seeing that it was a toll-free number, which can sometimes be difficult from a cellphone, I called from the landline in my hotel room. The number did not work. I asked the hotel receptionist to try the number for me and it did not work. I even tried calling from a public telephone in the street - it did not work! From the internet I obtained the rental desk number for Enterprise and was able to get through. I had hoped to be able to arrange a local replacement of the damaged tyre. However, with my limited German and the desk clerk's limited English and even more limited knowledge of cars I had the greatest difficulty getting her to understand that I had a burst tyre. She suggested I return the car to Salzburg Airport and pick up a replacement (a round trip of about 300km) but finally offered to get someone else to call me back. A man did call, about an hour and a half later, but his English was even worse and we finally agreed that I would just return the car at the end of my stay, using the spare tyre. The journey back to Salzburg on the Austrian autobahn at speeds limited to 80kph was very harrowing, with heavy lorries frequently coming up close behind, flashing lights and sounding horns for me to speed up or get out of the way. Overall I felt very isolated and vulnerable and completely let down by the lack of service from the hire company. Thankfully the burst tyre was only a minor incident. I dread to think of the problems if the incident had been serious. This was the worst level of service I have ever experienced and I will never use Alamo/Enterprise or their associates again.
