Great car and pricing. Very nice counter service person. Extremely helpful and good at explaining thingsThe line was too long upon arrival and the system/reservation process could’ve been much more efficient by using modern technology a little more To speed things up. It was extremely extremely slow

The staff was fine. See issue below...I had an approved confirmation for my reservation. When I got to the airport, I was told by the Budget staff that my account is blocked (This did not know why) and therefore, they can't rent the car per the reservation. I had to rent a car in other company which cost me double the price. Really Bad.

Difficult to NavigateEasy drop box to return your keys and car after hours.Extremely difficult to find - there are signs, but the way in which they lead you to the entrance is quite a goose chase if you are not from the area.

Drop off is so easy. Pick up takes somewhat longer than expected, perhaps due to my booking was not doen directly with Hertz/thrift. They asked me to write down typical info such as address, cell number and email which was given when booking was made.

Easy pick up and drop off. No language issues. Accommodating.Rental office difficult to find
9.2 Excellent2017 May 19
Pickup and dropoff were easy.I would have preferred a slightly smaller vehicle with decent trunk space for two large suitcases. Parallel parking a mini SUV in Europe can be challenging.

OverchargedGenerally liked the car (Renault Espace), but it is an experience. No visible dials, buttons, etc on the dash board. Definitely requires someone to show you how things work before driving away, but there was no one available to help.Arrived in Nice and they did not have the car I requested (Citroen C4 or similar). Said only car I could have was a van, in a different price category and that I would have to pay the difference in rates. Attendant said she was new and didn't have the ability to waive the extra cost. To me this is unacceptable and I would like to request a refund of the extra charges. At that moment, you are a prisoner, tired after the journey to get there, and with less will to fight. Drop off in Paris very difficult as drop offs, as I learned trough experience, are only in parking garages with no indication that Europcar have operations in them. Drove around for hours before finding Montparnasse.

Actually, we didn't return the car to Nice. We arranged to drop it off in Peripignon, where the return went fine

Staff friendly and helpfulThe Lyon drop-off address we were provided was wrong. Not slightly, completely. Entirely different block, in a garage with little-to-no signage, requiring an access code that we didn't learn about until we were able to get through on the phone, which also took some trying. Put us about an hour behind schedule.

The carMy scheduled pickup time was 11:00 am but our flight was early and ended up getting to the ticket counter at 9:30 am. They wouldn't issue me the car until 11:00 am so we had to sit there for an hour and a half waiting. There has to be a better way.

They wouldn't allow me to inspect the vehicle before. They said it was too dark. I came back, and there was a tiny scuff evaluated by a non-Hertz employee. I have outside insurance purchased, but I bet it's going to be a hassle.

Started great with an upgrade for free. Loved the car. But real unfortunate and bad ending as the company tried to charge us €500 for a very minor scratch that we did not do. Luckily my wife was still in town and went to see the car, upon which they reduced define to 100euros.

The desk agent sold me on a model upgrade, stating that the charge for my 8-day rental was 33 euros "which is less than 5 euros per day". They charged me 33 euros per day and ignored my request to correct the overcharge.

Upsell inscrupulousHad a Mercedes lined up for $500 over four days and was told we could get a van for much less with much more room. Took 15 minutes to switch the reservation around, and only at the end was I told that it was almost $290 more, despite the agents assurance it would be less.

The staff was terrible. After being intentionally left behind by the shuttle driver, I could not reach the other staff because they simply would not answer the phone for 15 minutes. When they did answer, I was told they had no car for me even though I had an emailed confirmation of my reservation.Everything went wrong. The reservation was initially sent to me as being France when I had entered Florida as my destination. After I told the customer service agent to cancel France and reserve Orlando, Florida, I still received confirmation of a France rental that I did not want. When I arrived in Florida and showed my Ace Rental Florida confirmation to the shuttle driver, I was left out in the cold, dark night because he said he would not let me board the shuttle since I was not on his hand written list. He told me to call the office then drive away. Nobody would answer the phone for 15 minutes. When I finally got through they told me they had overbooked and there were no cars. They offered no assistance. I was stranded in the airport late at night and left to fend for myself.

1. Pick-up process took 1.5 hour 2. Small car that didn't fit for 3 people and 3 bags 3. Gearbox failure even though the car had less than 1000 km millage 4. Double payment for the car (first via web-site to ACE, second at check-in to Rhodium). Luckily after several complains Rhodium paid me back.

It was not Ace. Some company goldcar rental. Horrible customer service, waited hour and a half for our turn. If you pay € 50 they can put you ahead of line. Then they threatened us for buying an additional insurance. They gave us a stick shift. Although I booked an automatic.

Top tips for renting a car at Nice Côte d'Azur Airport

  • Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE) is one of the busiest airports in France and serves several international and domestic routes. This means that Nice Airport is often crowded, especially during peak seasons and during workday rush-hour periods, such as the early mornings and mid-late afternoons. To avoid the crowds when you pick up your car hire at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, it is a good idea to arrange your collection in the mid-morning or early evening. This way you will avoid the rush-hour times for business travellers and will usually have a shorter wait time at rental counters.
  • Public transport options at Nice Airport are often very busy and passengers may have to queue for tickets. Private car hire at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport cuts back on wait times and allows you to get straight on the road as soon as you land. Driving, rather than relying on public transport, also shortens your journey time if you are travelling to Nice. While a bus or train ride to Nice takes approximately 20-25min, it is possible to arrive in Nice by car in under 10min, depending on traffic conditions. Perfect if you’re in a hurry when you arrive at the airport.
  • Nice Airport is well connected by road and is ideally situated for travelling by car. NCE is situated just off the main routes, such as the A8, which covers the whole of the French southern coast and connects with south-west destinations, such as Marseilles. From the A8, you can also join major routes, such as the A33 and the A51, which lead inland. Car hire at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport is perfect if you want to visit multiple destinations during your stay.
  • Nice Airport has great options for after-hours vehicle pick up and returns, so you can arrange your car hire to suit your travel plans. Many of their rental counters are open into the evening, with branches like Enterprise and Hertz closing after 22:00. However, if you are hiring with a branch that closes before or at 22:00, you can still pick up and return your car after-hours at the airport’s Car Rental Centre, which is located behind Terminal 2, across Car Park 5.
