Pros:

I got bigger car than I booked but the staff went more than beyond to offer me other option to switch for smaller car. Returning car was also very easy process.

Everything went fast and easy. I was lucky and got a car upgrade. The airport bus that took us to the rental village at arrival lasted half an hour, that was a bit annoying, but it had nothing to do with enterprise.

Pros:

Short queue, nice person behind the desk and no high pressure up-sale which I would have refused anyway.

Cons:

The car was a little basic, but I didn't really expect much more for the low price I paid.

We were warned that this company is notorious for nickle-and-diming you for minor scratches and damage to the vehicle. Thankfully we had on issues and were diligent with our pre and post rental inspections; however, I think it makes sense to warn potential renters. Additionally, note that their location is not -- in fact -- at the airport. Instead, you have to PURCHASE shuttle tickets between the nearby Novotel Hotel and the Airport, which adds time and cost to those flying in and out of Stansted Airport. Other than that, they allowed us to return the car on Saturday (some rental car businesses don't have weekend hours in this area), and everything went great. Budget rental, friendly staff. I would probably use them again?

Rental pick up is at Novotel about 15 min bus ride from Stanstead terminal. Bus pick up point is difficult to find, no signs or directions and is not with main car rental locations. Bus runs about every half hour, so could take 45 min or so to get to Greenmotion rental office which is a small trailer, staffed by indifferent people a short walk from the hotel. Took a long time to complete all their paper work, even though I had pre-paid on line. Agents try to sell you all kinds of add-ons. Car was nice, clean etc.

I am unclear about Green Motions extended hire policy. I asked about an extension a while ago and the price was in line with the weekly rate I was already paying. I enquired about an extension this time and the rate seemed to revert to the day rate i.e. two and half times more. I would like to know what the policy is to inform future trips.

Did not realise that booking through Kayak meant no insurance whatsoever. This doubled the cost! No contact from Hertz prior to pick up. Sketchy information about what was covered. Nil paperwork bar a receipt.

Never rent from them. If you do, video tape the car before you drive off. They rented me a car with pre-existing minor paint damage and accused me of creating it. They are dishonest. I've never had to deal with this before and have rented hundreds of cars. This is the only company I've encountered who does this.

Pros:

Processed rental quickly. Got on our way quickly.

Cons:

I was charged extra money because I made the reservation on kayak.com rather than a UK based website. They wouldn’t give me the keys without an additional 40 GBP charge.

This was the nightmare experience I have heard about but always thought was exaggerated. On the third day of our rental, the clutch went out on our car. They charged me $3000 and left me on the side of the road for 5 hours. No replacement rental.

Pros:

Good price!

Cons:

Absolutely terrible customer experience. We called and informed the company that due to our flights we were delayed. We asked if we needed to do anything else to confirm the rental, including paying in advance. They said no just come when you can. Upon arrival at the airport, we called to confirm how to get to their rental location - they told us that because we were not there within 5 hours of the booking, it was cancelled. The only other option was a large van at an additional three times the original price we booked. The staff were rude, were not truthful with us over the phone about holding on to our rental, and were not helpful. I'm shocked and would not recommend this company.

Cons:

Our flight was delayed coming into Stansted Airport. I called the rental car company and told them our flight was delayed and we were concerned because they would be closed by the time we got there. They told us not a problem and they would wait for us. When I landed and called them, no one picked up. They shouldn't have told us that they would wait if they couldn't. I will only use a big name car rental company from now on.

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing.

Cons:

If there were worse categories i would have used them. The customer service was 0/100 stars, the worst i have ever experienced in my life. Upon renting the car we were suggested to pay for a full tank of gas. We told the employee that we were only driving to cambridge and would not be needing a full tank. He told us something along the lines (was difficult to understand 100%) that it would be the same price, so he suggested that, thats what we should do. He did NOT tell us that we wouldnt get money refunded for unspent gas!? We agreed to buy the tank and upon returning, a second employee told us we would not be getting money back for unused gas (completely new information). He told us that we could go down and fill up the tank, return it full and he would try and change the contract for a possible refund. Upon return suddenly he was not able to do anything at all to help us, except that we could write to customer service. We did upon returning home - and ofcourse, customer service will not take any responsibility for the words of the employees at stanstead. In the end, due to ridiculously poor service we ended up paying 58 GBP for about a a quarter of gas. Needless to say we were stunned by the service we recieved at Easirent.

Top tips for renting a car at London Stansted Airport

  • Car hire at Stansted Airport offers a great starting point for a trip. It’s very close to the M11, which, heading south, will bring you straight to the heart of London or, heading north, will bring you to the historical and hallowed halls of Cambridge and its surroundings. The M11 also connects via the A14 with the M6, bringing you to England’s second city, Birmingham, in less than 2h. The same journey by train would take at least twice that amount of time requiring a connection in central London.
  • All the car hire companies at Stansted Airport have desks within the Arrivals Terminal, on the International Arrivals concourse, making car hire really straightforward, with staff on hand to advise and assist in your car choice and allowing quick comparisons of pricing between companies.
  • When you're ready to return your car you need to bring it back to the Car Hire Village, which is adjacent to the airport and is serviced by a free shuttle bus back to the terminals. On approach to the airport follow the signs for the Car Hire Village, park in the designated parking area and present at the company desk. Give yourself around 20min to complete the paperwork. It’s advised to refuel the car before you return it to save on costs.
  • Car hire at Stansted Airport operates from the Car Hire Village and is open 24h. It operates a drop box service for keys and return during out-of-office hours. Most companies operate their desks until 20:00, Monday to Friday, and until 16:00 on weekends. If you’d prefer to deal with an agent face-to-face then ensure you collect and return your car during those hours. During peak times, like August, give yourself extra time to return your car and get back to the terminal for your return flight.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at London Stansted Airport for ₪67 or less
  • Book your rental car at London Stansted Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
