ProVery cheap, new cars, easy online booking

ConsInflexible rules, possible unavailability of car, ...

We needed a car for our family of four (two adults and two long-legged teenage boys), plus a fair amount of luggage, for four weeks in September. Previously we'd used Ichthus Motors, a small firm in a rather inaccessible place in London which do cut-price rentals of donated cars for people in my...

Before hiring from easycar, I read many reviews which were mostly very negative! However I also read reviews for many other companies and every company seemed to have negative reviews so I decided to go ahead anyway. I booked online and paid a small deposit (decided not to pay the full amount...

“Easy as is should be”

ProReasonable renting charges. New cars

ConsLimited mileage. Too many rules for some

Recently it became necessary for me to take a trip from London up to Wrexham for an interview. However, after pricing up the cost of train tickets during peak times in the morning and evening I nearly had a heart attack. It was at this point that I decided to look around at the idea of hiring a...

“Easycar rentals...”

ProNice New Cars, Cheap

ConsToo Many to list here

Hired a car from Easycar earlier this year, between the 5th and 19th of March 2004 to be exact. I normally rent from Avis but I decided to give Easycar a go since they had opened an office at Heathrow and the price seemed very competitive. The 1st problem I had was trying to find their office...

Consawful customer service

I recently had the misfourtune of booking with this hire car company. I have used Easy rentacar before at Glasgow airport and had no problems. They appear to have since changed names to easycar and this time we found them to be appaling. I had done an internet search for hirecar companies at the...

My advice is that you NEVER rent a car to Easycar. I rented a car for a week this summer in Geneve. When I reached the airport the instructions were to contact to Alamo Desk. When I reached Alamo desk, they told me that there were no reservation in their reservations system. I have to call back...

Satisfactory

Good, tidy cars but we rented in Dublin for 2 days (2006) when we were there for a quick visit, unfortunately we were caught out on a piece of small print that we missed when booking online. When we collected the car we were made to pay €50 for a full tank of fuel before leaving the office, we didn't use the full tank in the two days and had to the return the car with over half the tank still remaining. We lost out... In my opinion that cars are ok, service is a little crap and the staff mostly don't care... Just read the small print

If there was a zero star rating for Easycar, that's what I'd give them. Eight of us needed to hire a car in Bristol over New Year so we plumped for 2 four seater cars as their max. size was for 7 people in a people carrier. We were told when we picked up the car that we had to return it with an empty tank. How environmentally friendly is that? This was because we were in the UK for five days. We returned both cars almost 3/4 full, so were over-charged £70 and Easycar will not reimburse. I think this is disgusting. DO NOT USE EASYCAR! They are not the cheapest. There are hidden charges. They are rogues and don't care about the customer.

previously had no problems with easy car which was good because only my wife has a credit card and only I can drive. Not this time - the firm they sent us to wouldn't accept this and advised that we contact easy car for refend - guess what - "no refund". We are awaing a list of all the succesful rentals we have had from them where they have clearly broken their own policy and I will be on them to break the another policy - I want my money back! Trading standards here we come!

do not rent a car abroad through easy car as they contract the hire out to a local company and if something goes wrong easy car will do bugger all to help you out even though they take the initial payment.I have been trying for 4 months to get a £380 deposit back from a spanish company and easy car have washed their hands of it saying I should read the small print BEWARE.

We hired out a van with Easycar, via internet, to pick up the van at Standsted airport.We had paid a bill of 600 L. and took an extra insurance of 56 L.to get what they call 0 risk. Great mistake. We wasted the 56 L. At Standsted airport, Easy car just does not exist. As they tell us, they are...
