Not getting what I booked forCons:After my extra effort to email and chat with your customer service and was assured that I would get the car I booked, I still received something not suitable and different to what I booked. My subsequent complaint fell on deaf ears as well.Reviewed 23 Jul 2017

At drop off they tried to charge me for previous damageCons:At the Sydney drop off they tried to charge me for previous damage. They wouldn't resolve it, so I cancelled the second rental in Cairns with them. I took video when I picked up and dropped off the car , and I told them I had the video. So far they haven't tried billing me for the damage. I recommend you us a more reputable company.Reviewed 21 Jun 2017

Pros:Convenient pickup location near arrivals Friendly and helpful staff Dropoff was quick and easy once we had descended into the depths of the underground car park (Pullman Hotel in central Sydney) Car was clean and mobile - although small even after our upgradeCons:Very slow pickup - took over half an hour to complete paperwork although there was no queue. For us, it was a big comparison with Launceston (Tasmania) Europcar where we had rented the week before and where pickup was almost instantaneous (to be fair, Launceston is a much smaller airport). Price increased more than expected over original booking - 30% (of total car price) extra charge was applied for picking up at Sydney airport.Reviewed 16 Jan 2017

Top tips for hiring a car from Europcar in Sydney

  • If you choose Europcar car hire in Sydney, whether at the airport or at one of the inner city branches, you'll be able to select the type of model you want. You'll be given a car that fits into that category, although you can't choose the exact make. There's plenty of variety though, from compact and economy cars through to high-end luxury saloons and sports cars. And with Australia being rich in varied terrains to explore, including countryside and coastlines, you'll also find a wide range of SUVs and MPVs.
  • If you initially decided not to book Europcar car hire in Sydney and you change your mind when you arrive, there's no need to worry. You can make use of Europcar's urgent car service, which will arrange one for you within a couple of hours at the Sydney Airport branch. This doesn't guarantee a particular model, so you can also opt to take public transport into Sydney itself and choose your model from the Europcar branch in the city. It will take about 48 hours to be ready for you.
