Could Choose Car

No Club Membership

I normally rent my cars through Hertz due to my membership with them and various other things. (See my 'op' on Hertz) On this occasion I needed to rent a car during the last bank holiday weekend. As this was for a personal trip rather than business, I asked my girlfriend to sort me out a car, she...

Queue at arrival and return desk

My mission was to organize the transport of 6 people (4 adults and 2 children) from our rural Glasgow retreat to the Costwolds for a wedding via London to pick up another passenger without spending a second mortgage or requiring 2 days to sleep off the effects of a 7 hour drive ? The second part...

“Renting a car without hassle”

My company is renting all their cars through National Car Rental. And recently I made use of them quite frequently, so I thought, I tell you about them. They offer a very good booking service. We for example have an online booking system integrated in our Intranet - you simply fill in the data...

Airport Surcharges & International Rates

Being a frequent renter I recently swapped my contract from Europcar (who are possibly the worst mainstream car rental provider) to National and Alamo Car Rental. The staff at this company are exceptional and have done everything from paying for my taxi fare to the rental location, to providing...

Don't use National! I booked a car online for the weekend using the internet pre pay facility, the rate was £45. When I came to collect the car I was told that there was a rental extension charge, even though the pickup and drop off times were exactly the same as I requested online. The rental...

We rented a National rental car in Switzerland. On returning their car we tried to fill up at their nominated automated service station. The machine ATE our credit card, there was no contact phone or anyone to call out, so we lost our card (we had to fly out that day.) National charged us a premium for not filling it up, and ontop of that, they charged an extra $50 service charge!! Stay clear of the slime!

Do not use National car hire. They have tried to overcharge us both times we used them. When we phoned up to complain regarding the overcharge no explanation was given. If we hadn't checked our credit card bill this would have gone unnoticed!
