Odin helped us!Supplying the car, which was promised! Not to wait for at least 1 hour at the que for picking up! A guy should deliver to us! He just gave the key and say OK! The price for renting and the extras (insurance) was invoiced higher than it was mentioned on the Rental Agreement form and reservation form.

they didnt have a car for us, although the fact that we had a reservation. they told us things like "it's not your fault", "what do you want me to do". they told us to call the customer service for finding a solution but the customer service told us that we need to speak with the people in the store. because we already booked hotels in different places we had to find a car, a day after christmas day when all the companies are almost fully booked. it took us 4 hours until we found one, in a different company of course. don't order Budget/Avis (they work together) if you want agood experience.

Good experienceLocation at the train station/city center rather than having to go the airport. Fair value. Would rent again from BudgetDirections back to the actual train station were a bit sketchy. I lucked out after two wrong turns and did find the right street into the parking garage. Also, I didn't know, for too long, where the key drop-off was. Perhaps better briefing before leaving, or update the written map with the key drop.

Convenient location, good rates, good vehicles. Person who worked with us was very helpful and efficient.Drop off takes long because there is only one person in the office. We had to wait because he was busy with other customers, after that we went back to the garage to inspect the car, and back to the office to finalize paperwork. It took about 40 minutes. A couple of chairs for customers in the office would have been nice.

I liked the convenient location pick up . I did not liked the long waiting on the phone when I wanted to extend the rental and also did not liked the high price of 120 Euro for one additional day … This was NOT what I was told when I picked the car . They told me it will be less than 80 euro ( I paid 310 for 4 days !!! - they said it will be pro rated !! In fact you charged me 50 % more for one day !! This is not the way to treat a customer !!!!

Absolutely horrible. I was told to pickup the vehicle at noon and the center was closed. We had to pay well over our budget to rent another car from a different sixt location that was open. Sixt customer service told me I could return the vehicle early and receive a refund of the difference. When canceling plans and rushing around to do so, the center and customer service told me this could never be offered…further, that o could receive a fee for early return…no one could help us and worst car rental experience I’ve ever had…

The car even though it was new, has two annoying problems: 1; front parking sensor buzzing most the time and 2; blocked control remote key opening.This is because of Opel, not Sixt, but anyway the performance of the work is not finally good for us the customers.

Terrible companyHurts doesn't let you cancel car rentals unless you call them. While travelling, without an international data plan this was impossible. I have made and cancelled other car reservations by email or on the website without issue. The only reason they would make it so complicated is to make it harder for their customers to get their money back. The price was also misleading. It said at The end it was charging me $43 on my credit card, but when I paid my receipt was for over $100. I'm not sure how that can be legal. I will never rent from Hertz again.

EUR 52 for crossing a border to the country where the car comes from??Terminal pick up CleanlinessIt may have been in the small print which I didn't notice, the rental company in Vienna, Austria gave me a car registered in Slovakia with Slovakian plates and then charged me EUR 52 to drive to Slovakia??? In addition, they blocked EUR 100 from my credit card to secure this fee... and the manager was not there when I asked for explanation and only got "because the manager told us to..." Staff poorly trained in customer service and fees not making sense... I rented the car for a weekend with my family in Slovakia but when I opposed the fee o was told that "the fee is actually really convenient because I. An cross the border as many times I want and still only pay the one fee...."?!?! The total rental fee for 2 days was about 100 and the cross border fee made in 50% more expensive Not good at all, will make sure to avoid and spread the word...

I declined car rental by arrival as there were lots of hidden feesInitial price was 97€ which raised up to 220€ at the rental office (Due to insurance). When I refused to buy insurance i was informed that 2000€ of deposit will be blocked. So I refused to rent car at your company at all. Unfair and not transparent price policy.

Misleading descriptionThe workers were helpful and courteous at check out and check in.I paid for a car that would seat seven people and have room for two sit cases. However, the car I got had a tiny rear seat that my seven year old couldn't fit her legs in unless we moved the middle seat forward to where the others passengers had their knees pressed up against the front seats. With the third row seat open, we couldn't fit any luggage in the tiny space behind the rear seat.
6.4 Good9 Jul 2018
Although I purchased a full protection insurance they asked me to block on my card 2000 euros provisionally and some another 150 provisionally in case i dont deliver the car on the date and the gas tank empty. for a transaction of 47 euros they blocked additional 2150 euros! imagine if i didnt have availability on my card. Also, when I delivered the car it was in an open plot without a person to receive the car. Imagine if anyone would vandalize the car over night! Too many unknowns and worries for a day rental with full protection, isnt it?

Terrible experienceThe guy at the rental agency was very irritating, thats the first thing.

Worst service everThe kayak website offers insurance with alliance so you don’t have to pay the extra fees of insurance with your rental company. I have rented with other car companies as budget and sixt and they have been fine with it, placing a $300 dollar deposit on the credit card. Dollar rental wanted a $2000 deposit on the car if I didn’t get the insurance with them for $14. When I agreed they told me I would have to leave a $1350 deposit because that insurance is not the complete one that the full insurance would cost a total of $35 extra a day. I also rent with enterprise and they charge $19/day, they don’t accept alliance insurance and have the $200 deposit. At that point I left the office whent to sixt rental, next to them, and they accepted the alliance insurance and just have to leave the $300 deposit on the car. Never going to even think of renting with dollar again, also the gentleman at the counter was super angry and rude from the start.

Hidden charges...The pick up location was close to my house and the quality of the car was good.The price quoted to us was misleadingly low. We had to purchase various forms of insurance to prevent a huge amount being 'blocked' on our credit cards. Also, if we wanted to drive to Hungary (which is the next country bordering Austria and part of its former empire for God's sake) we had to pay an additional amount. All in all, we spend about €300 more than we bargained for in renting this car and I am furious. Car rental companies and Hertz in particular have a nasty habit of nailing you with hidden costs. I will definitely not be using Dollar again!

Horrible experience, bad communication-location hard to find- it's inside Hertz balcony with no signs whatsoever. -Price was good, but I was asked for 2000euros of deposit (first 1000, after a mistake from the employee, then he apologized and said 2000) -I understand it's Hertz policy, but a rent a car costs 41.92euros, and the insurance 92 euros??? -left without renting the car, tried to cancel the reservation, but internet site very bad organised. -Kayak so far amazing experiences.

Experience was awful simply because they didn’t give me a car with the reasoning that my driving license wasn’t issued in EU, however it is international and I am using it in Europe for many years. I think the reason was different! They simply didn’t have car because of the New Year overbooking however they have sold the rent via Kayak. The manager was rude! So I didn’t get car from them. Thanks to SIXT they still had cars and I finally could take it and continue my trip. There was also big problem to contact Kayak afterwards in order to return money. My phone was in roaming and I had to call to US call center from Europe to cancel this booking. I had to talk 10 minutes to stupid automatic computer voice before operator picked up a phone. And then she was asking me the same questions which robot has already asked 5 times. And with such experience instead of timely returning my money to my account and apologizing for negative case, Kayak is sending me a questionnaire asking if I am satisfied with service?! I am in shock with this approach! And please return my money and inform me respectively, otherwise I will have to make other relative posts in different sources.

We Ubered it to the location (20 min drive from the airport), and when we got there and asked the staff how we were supposed to contact them, they said by phone. When said we had tried, he just shrugged. The staff who was there when we dropped off the car was a lot nicer, but the overall experience with Greenmotion was not great.

Car hire excess insurance in Vienna

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 Vienna 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 Vienna.

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 Vienna car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Vienna

  • Vienna is not only a wonderful city overflowing with architectural significance and unrivaled musical heritage, it is also nestled in an incredible landscape close to Austria’s most amazing mountains and countryside. Choosing to rent a car during your stay in Vienna will allow you to explore the celebrated vineyards surrounding the capital, nearby rustic rural villages, or even Slovakia’s capital of Bratislava, which is only a one-hour drive eastward.
  • Vienna International Airport is located 18 km (11 miles) from the center of the city, a drive that normally takes approximately 30 minutes. Assess the best options using KAYAK today and organize your hire car in advance, making arrival and pickup of your keys an easy process. Major global hire companies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Sixt have counters located on the ground floor (Level 0) of the P4 parking lot, a short underground walk from the baggage claim area.
  • Ensure that you have an International Driver's Permit (IDP) before traveling to Vienna and renting a car. The IDP is a translation of your US license and can be acquired at any American Automobile Association (AAA) branch office or via an online application.
