Staff were EXCEPTIONAL - extremely helpful, gave us all kinds of useful information, really great attitudes and I got lost in trying to find the drop off and was going to miss my flight so one of the staff gave me a ride to the terminal and I was able to catch my flight. I couldn't be more grateful!GPS does not pick up car rental village... have BIG SIGN out on the roadway showing car rental return like they do in the USA it's so easy here. The GPS took me to an Uber waiting parking area and not one of the signs on the roundabout said CAR RENTAL VILLAGE.

The force at which additional insurance was attempted to be sold to me was appalling At one point I was told “if you have a serious accident you will be liable to pay £32,000”. Scare tactics indeed I ordered a Nissan qashqai or similar. Was offered a Hyundai i20. Which is not same class or size. Therefore I had to upgrade I will never use enterprise again based on this experience

Reservation price was different to the actual price at pick up. Original price per the booking should have been honored.
7.6 Good2019 Jan 01
Difficult to find drop off locations for rental cars- not sign posted well (for all rental returns not just Enterprise). Lobby of waiting area was clean but the seats are in really poor condition. Again a communal area not just for Enterprise customers.

Not class reservedThey didn’t have any mid-size suvs—the class we had reserved. Tried to rent us large 10 passenger van instead, which was unacceptable. Eventually manager became involved and we settled on Ford Galaxy which they told us was our only other option without paying much more.

Just okayCar rental facility, once you find it, is pretty close to the terminals, with rapid bus service.Dropoff procedure at Manchester Airport was slow (10 minutes to get car checked in, due to understaffing) and not terribly friendly.

Unpleasant drop offNo queue.Agent was nitpicking at drop off. He focused on Minor wear and tear I could not even have seen at pickup because the car park was too dark. I was not charged, but it made me feel very uncomfortable and delayed my departure.

I’m from the US and when the car was returned 30 min late because I was lost, I was charged another day’s rental. Plus, the insurance rates are too high! I will not rent from Hertz again!
4.0 Okay2017 Jul 04
Why is car rental at British airports so awful?Car was fine, but lacked any frills.Heathrow and Manchester seem designed to give the worst possible first impression of the country, and the car rental facilities are the worst of the worst. Have the designers never traveled to a half-decent airport in the US, Asia or Europe? Poor signage (also at Gatwick); lousy shuttles; complacent service by people who clearly don't care. This trip was capped by a ridiculous charge for an invisible "dent". The car rental has a veneer of efficiency (e.g. Electronic check-in), but this was a poor and sloppy experience through-and-through.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Mar 05
Don't trust KayakNothingHertz refused to release the car at the price quoted by Kayak. Even though I had pre-paid the insurance. I hired a car from Avis at a lot less. Also it seems I am unable to reclaim the pre-paid insurance. Rubbish company.

1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 07
I contracted the car for £89. I waited for 25 minutes in line to listen to a eruopcar employee talk about the weather to another customer. I was then informed that I was late (after 4pm) and would be charged an extra £60. I was then informed that I needed insurance as the quote I received did not include it. So an extra £40 was added. I ended up paying an extra £100 in total. I will;l never again use Europcar after being a loyal customer for 30 years.
4.4 Okay2018 Oct 09
Lack of transparencyI was extremely frustrated to find I *had* to purchase additional theft insurance, even though I have full coverage through my credit card. This added significantly to the daily cost of the rental in ways I had not planned on. It would be one thing if this had been communicated transparently at the point of booking, but to find this out at the point of pick up was extremely frustrating. I will be more discerning in future, and will not be choosing Europcar.

After long wait at counter, company would not honor arranged priceCompany required purchase of insurance which would more than double rental price. Declined to rent and rented instead from National at adjacent counter with no problems and lower price. Will not rent from Europcar again. Was fortunate to find and available car, in same class, at a good price during holiday week..

They did a bait and switch on me at Heathrow by claiming that as my flight arrived early they didn't have a car available in the class I booked. So what they had was 250% higher. As I was there for my mother's 100 birthday, and they are well away from all other rental companies, I had to accept it. However I will never rent from them again
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 26
No one was at the Sixt counter to collect the car, and after waiting 30 minutes, I called the Sixt helpline, only to find an automated message saying my booking had been cancelled. That meant I had to book another car with a rental company whose desk was manned at twice the cost of the original. I am absolutely disgusted with both Sixt and Kayak for not informing me of the cancellation, and leaving me in the lurch after a 10 hour flight and I will not be using either again.

Did not get final bill immediaitly after rental still waiting - 48 hrsCar was fine, pretty standardDid not get a final bill at the return -- got a copy of damage report emailed (no damage, everything in order, fuel full, etc. ), but did not get a bill. I rent a lot for business and family trips and expect to immediatly get a final bill for the rental on return -- very unsatisfactory. Will I get a surprise? I don't know?

Ease of pick up and no worried about the vehicleI don't like that you always end up spending 2x more money than the rental to cover insurance as they will not take insurance from the state's. Would like to have this disclosed.

Was told I needed to pay an extra £200 on top of the price that I had been quoted on the website. Apparently, because I had booked through a US website, insurance hadn't been included in the original quote!!

drop off at Gatwick was difficult. its at a hotel in the middle of a very confusing one way system, there are no visible signs until you get into the car park and if youre dropping it off on a sunday like I was theres no one to help you. I parked next to a van with the easirent logo on it so I assume it was the right place but the spaces had hertx written on the ground by them so I may well end up with a fine. who knows.

Easirent is a smaller rental company. At Manchester England, they are not located with the other car rental companies, so you to call them and wait for them to pick you up. When you first land, and you don’t have a phone, how are you going to call them? It took us an hour to figure out the phone situation and finally get picked up. The staff at Manchester was very nice, but way too busy. It took another 30 minutes just to talk to someone. Then once all of the paperwork was done, our car wasn’t ready. We had to wait another 10 minutes for them to clean the car. The car itself had seen better days. It had over 50,000 miles. The trim around the rear view mirror was missing. The wipers were terrible and needed to be replaced. The intermittent wiper feature didn’t work. The trunk never opened on the first try; we literally had to unlock the trunk once, then pry up the trunk with our fingers, and then release the trunk a second time. The car was littered with scrapes and dings. We constantly had a warning that the battery in the remote needed to be replaced. And the gas tank was at 3/8 full when we got it. Our final drop off was in Aberdeen Scotland. There, the drop point is in a hotel. We were there before they opened and had to use the drop box. It was a gray box with no markings that says Easirent or “night drop”. Two days later, I still don’t have confirmation that my rental is complete. I would not rent from Easirent again.

They tried to charge me double when I went to pick the car up. They said insurance was not included. There was no mention of this in the emails and agreement. I lost 5 hours and ended up walking away as I was disgusted with the situation. In fairness, the manager at the centre was polite and helpful and admitted the website was not transparent, but there was nothing he could do.

So many issues. Called for shuttle pickup at airport. Waited an hour (was told he would be there in 15 min). When we asked why he was so late, we were told he was taking his lunch break. 😳 Car was dirty…. Inside and out We were told that we had to buy the extra insurance (80£) even though we have car insurance that covers everything. They insisted that we must buy the extra insurance. We heard this same conversation with other customers as we were picking up and dropping off. Customers were mad! This is a shoddy operation. Never going to rent from them again.

The car ended up being 4 times more expensive than advertised. Personal weren’t very nice and weren’t trying to be very helpful. Would definitely not use this service again, especially not through kayak/priceline. There’s no transparency on how much the car actually costs.
2.0 Mediocre2021 Dec 23
- - AVOID AT ALL COSTS - or it WILL COST YOU! - - £150 for a small car for 6 days - GREAT it came in below all the competitors. Then.... it just gets worse.. So the rental place is Not at the Airport and you could be waiting a while to get their minibus out to the middle of nowhere, and THEN... you are in their clutches. They KNOW you are stranded with them in their secure compound, so this is where they start turning the price knife. My £150 literally doubled to £300 because I did not have my own CDW (collision damage waiver). of course I don't! Only in USA do they have the Insurance, taxes etc ON TOP of the quoted price. - But these guys behind the "My Hands are Tied My Friend" polished sales lines, will squeeze you on so many angles - with the fear of God, if anything at all happens to the vehicle wanting a whopping £1500 on your creditcard ON TOP of the fee, in case anything happens AND ….. it takes 28days to get it back (check!). so a £150 car rental - with No * Extra Costs advertised. ending up costing me over £350!!!! (NOT including the deposit holding fee). then... if you want it just one more day - the advertised day rate of £24 goes to...... Brace Yourself Seriously!!!!!! £234.00 - OMG - it was cheaper to take it back and pay a £150 UBER EXEC to be driven to my next location with my Bags. WHAT A RIP OFF!!!! YES - AVOID at all COSTS... so an advertised car @24 per day (£150) ended up costing £83 per day (£581) before costs!!!! This needs investigating - I am now collating evidence for the Advertising Standards Agency!

Staff was friendly as they charged me double the agreed-upon price.Payment due at pickup doubled from what I agreed upon when I hired the car via Kayak. I didn't have time to argue the charges because I was on vacation and had time-sensitive plans. This company seems to prey on foreigners in this type of situation. Advertise a low price, double it upon arrival.

Top tips for renting a car at Manchester Airport

  • Manchester Airport, in the north of England, is ideally located as a starting point for a road trip around the north of the UK. A car hire at Manchester Airport will give you the freedom to explore Manchester but also to venture to nearby cities such as Liverpool, Sheffield, and Leeds. It is easy to get into Manchester from the airport on the motorway (M56 and M60) and you can also access the M6, which runs north to south, and the M62, which will take you across to Leeds and from here you can head into the Yorkshire Dales and up to Scotland.
  • If you would like more freedom to travel into the Peak District National Park or some of the little villages in the countryside, then a car hire at Manchester Airport will provide many more options than the public transport available from the airport. The network of roads in England is vast and whether you want to get from A to B quickly on a motorway or enjoy the scenery on a country road, hiring a car at Manchester Airport will allow you to explore at your own pace.
  • Car hire at Manchester Airport has been made easy with the location of all the car hire offices at the Car Rental Village, which can be reached by courtesy shuttle from the terminal buildings. The shuttles run every 10min from each terminal and the journey time is less than 10min. You will be met by the agent representing your car hire company who can help process the paperwork and give you the keys to your Manchester Airport car hire.
  • Returning your car to the Car Rental Village at MAN is easy. Leave the M56 motorway at Exit 5 and follow the signs to Terminal 3, turning right into Ringway Road and making your way to the Car Rental Village. There are parking spaces for each car hire company where you can leave your car, returning the keys to the relevant desk or leaving them in the drop-box if you are returning out of hours.
