1.9 Horrible16 Oct 2021
There was no one at the office in Orvieto to drop off car. Two other customers waited with us for two hours to leave car. Despite calling twice and being told that someone would be there in five minutes no one showed up. All three left keys in a broken lock box at the office.

I have returned the car in FCO airport and reviewed it together with a Hertz representative. He confirmed everything was in order and after signing a tablet said he will send a confirmation email. Weeks later I get a letter on post saying that the car, which I returned in perfect condition has marks on it *many weeks later* and despite reviewing it with a Hertz representative (there were 3 of us in the car as well we all examined the car carefully and between the 4 people seeing it no one saw anything). I didn't know these kind of scams can happen in Europe. Shocking.

Nothing.We waited in queue for about an hour/ hour half for the lady behind the desk to tell us that she gave our rental away. Worse experience.

Did not except free upgrade coupon. Quote rate was $105 final rate was was $214. Misleading. I’m a gold member with Hertz and was treaded very poorly. Said no upgrade was available and they had about 50-75 cars in the lot.Gave me the free upgrade that Hertz gave me as a reward. Charged me the quoted rate. No signage at drop off on where to park the vehicle.

Staff was fairly friendlyThey didn’t have the car we booked. So instead we ended up with a Renault Kadjar, which is by far the worst car I’ve ever drive. Bulky, uncomfortable, and the transmission was atrocious. All because they didn’t have what we actually booked.

Nothing was exceptional. Parts is the experience were d fine and other parts were terrible.I booked a Mercedes Benz and was given a FIAT!!! They said it was the same category but there is no universe where those two brands are on the same levels. Total scam. My flight got in two hours late so they apparently gave my car away. I looked on the website and the car I was given was a third of the price of the car I had booked. Very bad, very unimpressed.

Staff was helpful, car was cleanThe check in process was pretty long, I was quoted 30 minutes and it took closer to an hour an half. The car pricing was also never broken down to me and the receipt wasn't itemized so I am not sure what I was paying for. The price was different than the price I paid online so I'm not sure what the extra fees were. The price could have been warranted but I wish the receipt would tell me what I was paying for.

Only the drop off was a positive experience.Everything. They didn’t consider the rate I booked via Kayak, told me that wasn’t true and gave me a completely new rate. Staff extremely unprofessional and with a poor english. The car was disgusting, clearly they haven’t cleaned the vehicle for months. Horrible experience

Staff here was more helpful than Milan. At Florence out Reserved luxury class of vehicle was not available but they offered a higher class vs. being downgraded & given a manual shifter by Budget in Milan the prior week.Faster service would be nice - wait was < 30 min vs. 3+ hrs experience in Milan even with a reservation.

Picking up the car took almost an hour. The thrifty counter was closed and everyone had to pickup their cars at the Hertz counter. There were only two people working the desk and each rental took so long that there was a huge line out the door. It delayed our departure so we missed an appointmentMore people working, faster service

How Did They Make Money?We rented a small SUV (Fiat 500S) from Florence, Italy and dropped off in Rome, Italy. We had the car a week and the charge was 33Euros (about $40) FOR THE WEEK!!! With taxes and fees the total was 126 Euros. The vehicle had a GPS so we didn't have to pay extra for that. It was awesome having the freedom to drive through Tuscany and stop wherever we wanted and sightsee.

Upon returning the car in good condition, we were hit with 270 euros in unexpected charges, including 150 euros for a collision damage waiver we expressly declined at the outset. The rental itself was only 158 euros so that alone doubled the price. Enterprise said they had no ability to review the charges—they appear to have just licensed their name to a local company. Do not rent from here or expect that the Enterprise name means any kind of quality or accountability.

Always naaty suprisesCar was great, newish with good features and very clean.Whenever I rent a car I go in ready to have a battle over extra charges. How ever much research I do I know that when I go to pick it up there will be some sort of extra charge. On this occasion there was 2! Deluxe damage waiver cover, to avoid the ludicrously high excess €1800!!! In the event the car gets damaged. Thia cover cost almost as much as the car hire itself, I wasn't offered any options for level of cover, but I'm assuming as this was referred to as deluxe on my receipt there may have been other cheaper options that may have suited my needs, but no one mentioned these to me. Then secondly a €20 charge if I wanted to return the vehicle at 10pm ( as had been stated on my initial hire request that was quoted on - as there was a charge for returning the vehicle outside of normal working hours. I hate hate hate renting Cara, and it is because there are always hidden charges sold to me out of fear. An awfully customer experience, and as soon as a provider offers clear pricing up front with no surprise charges they will get my custom every time! Based on my previous experience with enterprise I don't expect any response to this feedback. Your adverts in the UK state, UK car hire with US customer expeeience. Well you live up to that in some respects; the US are masters of the extra hidden charges!!

1.9 Horrible20 Aug 2021
Hello. We had a very unpleasant experience returning this rental car in Naples, Italy. The information you sent us regarding the dropoff location was inaccurate, and the complete lack of signage made it impossible to find the dropoff location. As we were travelling internationally, neither of our US-based phones were able to access data, and we were relying on downloaded Google maps. The info on our reservation email says: Drop-off August 16, 2021 3:00 PM Presso Star Hotel Terminus - NP5 Pickup:Pizza Garibaldi 92 Napoli, 80142 IT (39) 081 284041 Latitude: 40.851826, Longitude: 14.271444 "Presso Star Hotel Terminus - NP5" sends us nowhere, and the Avis pin on the map is also inaccurate (see the first image. this is the taxi turnaround for the train station). "Pickup:Pizza Garibaldi 92" took us to the alley on the backside of a hotel. The coordinates point to the pedestrian-only plaza on the North side of the same hotel. When I finally parked illegally to run into the station and call the number over public wifi, the agent gave me an address that lead us to the entrance of an underground parking lot a couple of blocks North. Not only was this incredibly frustrating, but driving around for hours looking caused us to miss our train. I would like for Kayak to refund us the cost of rebooking that train, which came to 126.80 Euros-which included a substantial upcharge due to the last-minute booking.

I was expecting to rent an Audi A3 manual convertible or equivalent, but when I arrived at the pickup, the only car available was a Fiat automatic convertible. I find it a leap to say these cars are equivalent. The trip was to tour though Tuscany mountainside. The little Fiat automatic was not up to the challenge and not what I was expecting.

Had to follow a return bus from the airport to the car return location.Documents are only in Italian. Not a clear understanding f what you are signing. Sixth in US has no affiliation with the company in Italy. It is a separate franchise. Hint: pic up full coverage on the rental vehiclle, or count the scratches and photography the body before leaving the lot. Make sure someone there signs off on any damage before you leave the lot if you don't get full coverage. $20 Euro a day for full coverage. A rip off..

Pick Up/Drop Off Needs ImprovementThe car itself was in good condition.The line to check in was ridiculously long, the longest I have ever seen. It took 45 minutes to reach the counter. The line was as long when we returned the car. My father had a separate contract and wanted to pay cash, but couldn’t wait in such a long line.

A nightmareThat we actually found the rental car return lot.I would strongly suggest no one return a car to Florence as their location is difficult to find, signage is absent, and it was stressful navigating our way because car rental is not right at airport.

Car hire excess insurance in Florence

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Florence car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Florence.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Florence car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Florence

  • Florence is great as a homebase for travelers looking to visit Tuscany, especially with a hire car, as there are a plethora of day trip options available. For instance, travelers could drive to the neighboring cities of Cortona, Chianti, or Siena. Chianti is particularly great for travelers looking to drive across the Tuscan countryside to enjoy some of Italy’s most famous wine country.
  • Need to pick up a hire car before you start your journey in Italy? If you flight lands at Florence Airport, you will find the majority of the hire car companies just outside, adjacent to the airport’s main terminal. There are a number of hire car counters in the airport’s lobby as well.
  • One of the particular traits of Italian cities is the Limited Traffic Zones (ZTLs in Italian). These zones are not open for normal traffic and are, for the most part, only accessible to residents who live and work there. Drivers should keep this in mind when deciding upon hotels and travel itineraries in the city.
  • Morning rush hour typically lasts from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Florence, and travelers are highly advised to avoid it if possible. There is also an evening rush hour that goes from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and largely affects drivers leaving the downtown area. Other areas to avoid during rush hour include the streets surrounding the Giardino della Fortezza, as this area in particular is plagued with traffic.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Florence for £18 or less
  • Book your car hire in Florence at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Economy car hires in Florence are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average
