3.6 Mediocre2 Oct 2019
Pros: Almost nothing. Service was a lie and post service was inexistent.Cons: Everything. The info provided in the booking was not the same provided during the service. The post service assistance (Mr. Sergio - representante. De servicios al cliente) was absolutely inefficient and annoying. Didn’t provide any solution, didn’t review the case. Not having a telephone numbe
8.0 Excellent25 Oct 2017
Good rental car experinecePros: I received the car I wanted at a good price. Pick up and drop off were quick and as expected. Shuttle takes you from service counter to car lot which is just off airport. Sixt has always treated me well.
2.0 Mediocre6 Oct 2017
Horrible ServicePros: NothingCons: I was told at the counter that since I declined the insurance (because my credit card applied theirs) that they had to place a 4000 Euro hold on the card. They placed a 4900 euro hold on my card.
6.0 Good13 Jul 2016
Argument over state of the car upon return, otherwPros: Location for pick up in Bucharest Central Car was clean, but do read the comments.Cons: Casual attitude of the staff for scratches/damages when receiving the car from Sixt, not the same while returning to airport, Note to other users, please make sure that you check the car carefully, not just indication on paper on the car image for damages, but also what's written on the paper about the state of the car, we almost got caught as there was damage on the car not indicated on paper, but were told 'It is a problem' while returning. It needed a wait of 30 min for someone else to hear the same story and state 'car was ok'.

Cons: I will not try them again ....
2.0 Mediocre10 Sep 2018
Pros: NOTHING!Cons: im usually a very positive person but i got to the rental and they did not have my reservation i called payless and they said the reservation was there and i said no cause the man at the counter said there is nothing... the man said then we do not know you need to figure it out.....SAY WHAT!!!! mind you i had been traveling all day and it was 2 am!
2.0 Mediocre10 Aug 2018
Cons: They didn't have a car for me
2.0 Mediocre26 Jun 2018
Bad serviceCons: Employees do not understand the nature of their business or their clients. They make no effort to satisfy customers. Some cars are in really bad shape. I had to wait one hour before I could get my car. They do not have an office at the airport.
4.4 Okay2 May 2018
Hidden FeesPros: Nice staff at the Bucharest PaylessCons: We were promised by Car rentals.com that all fees were included. when we got to Payless they made us pay another 80 Euros for a 1 way fee and 10 Euros for highway pass fees. I am working on getting refunded.
2.0 Mediocre31 Jan 2018
Cons: they have hidden tax((I paid +50% more that we agree ,when I get the car. They charge me for winter tyres 50 euros. By law in Romania they were supposed to have them on the car in the winter I'm very, very unhappy with Payless.I will never use this rental company again.
8.0 Excellent10 Nov 2017
Please add a phone number for this rental location to the reservation!Pros: Great price.Cons: Unclear what number to call for shuttle to rental lot.
9.6 Excellent22 Feb 2017
Pros: Friendly and fast pickup and delivery.Cons: When the weather is cold and there is snow a tool to clean the windshield should be provided. Waking up in the morning and finding out you can not use the car for sometime is not a good surprise.
6.0 Good12 Feb 2017
Cons: Collection of the car was fine. The return was more problematic, the address given was not accurate and so took a while until I found the place, besides the place is dark and you can not check the vehicle properly. Reception representative vehicle passes you on the cell phone with the help of light making it difficult to see flaws you must properly. The return suddenly appears a large flashlight and checked the vehicle with surprisingly discovered almost invisible scratches appear, although I had full insurance all the time I was told that the insurance does not cover the scratch. The general feeling is that trying to trip you up. There are many rumors about similar cases, I think this issue should be handled in front of representatives in Romania.
8.0 Excellent7 Feb 2017
Great car and servic value but the car is not in tPros: Very good car and service. Great priceCons: We had to wait 30 minutes for pickup to the car

  • Your hazard lights will be your friend while in Romania. Drivers in Bucharest and Romania as a whole use their hazard lights for a number of purposes when driving. For instance, often they will give them a quick flash to say thanks to another driver in place of a wave. Additionally, they are occasionally used when slowing down on the highway in place of a turn signal to show drivers behind that they plan to turn onto a smaller road.
  • Bucharest, like so many other cities in the world, is unfortunately afflicted with daily rush hours. Drivers can usually expect to encounter the morning rush hour from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush starts around 3:00 p.m. and lasts till 7:00 p.m.

  • By far the most common type of car in Bucharest is a compact hatchback or sedan, so if fitting in is the goal then those are the two best options. However, the streets of Bucharest are more than large enough to serve a wide range of vehicles sizes. So, even if neither of those two vehicle types suit you, there are still plenty of viable car types to choose from.

  • Speed limits in Bucharest start off at around 50 km/h (31 mph) in urban and residential areas and move up to 90 to 100 km/h (56 to 62 mph) on expressways and rural roads. For the fastest of highways the speed limit bumps up again to 130 km/h (81 mph).

  • Petrol prices in Bucharest are on average 5.25 L ($1.28) per liter of gas. To put that in gallon terms, that is around 19.87 L ($4.85) per gallon. This is much cheaper than the average prices seen in much of Europe, particularly in comparison to Athens’ average price of $6.95 and Geneva’s average price of $6.25 per gallon.

  • Looking forward to checking out the historic areas of Bucharest? Well, if you plan on driving there, it may be best to park in a nearby garage and walk from there, as there is often limited parking in the historic areas of the city. There are streetside parking spaces available, but they often fill up fast.
