7.6 Good23 Sep 2017
Cons: We were not offered any map or other information when we picked up the car in Lugano.
2.0 Mediocre14 Nov 2016
Cons: I couldn't purchase the insurance online so I had to buy it in person. They charged me triple the amount It had said online.. I was not happy. Next time I will choose another rental company...
2.8 Mediocre3 Dec 2015
Cons: stranded at the airport for three hours. had everyone in the tiny airport looking for the Budget person. no one answers the phone. had others call. no email address. finally someoe appeared but for another swiss who just got off the plane. hauled into Lugano proper. given a car which had been utilized by a very heavy smoker despite asking for a non-smoking car. complained to the states who turned it over to zurich. they "spoke" to the franchise owner. no apology, no refund for time lost, no sorry you missed your appts. ma'am. to add insult to injury charged airport taxes despite doing everything in lugano. price was not what was quoted. kayak and budget need to investigate this bait and switch routine. budget needs to provide lessons in customer service. worst car rental agency in the world.

2.0 Mediocre26 Jul 2018
They would not work with us on renting a car.Cons: We had our drivers licenses stolen and went to the police and called back to the US to get verification that we were valid drivers but they would not work with us in renting a car. We went to another agency who rented us a car! I would never use Sixt again!!
