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 at Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport

  • Although Sydney has an excellent public transport system, it's so much more convenient to book Europcar car rentals at Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport.
