Great experienceClean vehicle, fuel efficient, easy to book same day, short walk from terminal to pick up the car. Purchase the middle rate insurance for piece of mind and the price from 4 days was reasonable. Ended up having to add an additional day which was easily done by calling the rental counter at the airport.The only thing I can complain about is the entrance into the rental car return is VERY poorly marked. This isn't hertz's fault, but rather the airport's fault.

The car was clean and worked well. The signage of the airport 'office' is not visible enough. One of the staff didn't seem to know everything about his job, however the others were very friendly and professional.

Lady at the desk was helpful , initially the rates were sky high whe we just walked up but after booking via Kayak we got the same car from the same lady at more than half the price !!Use Kayak to get good hire car rates and avoid just hiring in person at the airport car hire desk.

Check in staff were friendly and helpful. Wasn't happy about being charged a fee for an additional driver - have not been charged this with other car hire companies. Car was new and clean. Overall good service
8.0 ExcellentApr 18 2022
I had booked an SUV, but on arrival was offered a Camry Hybrid instead. After explaining my husband would have difficulty getting in and out of a sedan, I was then offered a Mitsubishi SUV. Staff were professional. The car was clean, performed well with no issues. I was, however, a little peeved that I was charged over $23 international transaction fees by my credit card provider for the payment I made when booking the car online.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 10 2022
Value for Money. Quick and easy check-in and check-out of the vehicle.
10.0 ExcellentJan 13 2022
The vehicle was clean, a pleasure to drive, staff explained the Toyota hybrid drive well, including traps for young players. When I returned the vehicle, there was a long line which was not a good look for them. I think that they should consider prioritising the returns, as new rentals were taking ages, while returns were flying through once they got served.

6.0 GoodAug 10 2018
Fair serviceStaff were friendly and proffessional.Given my recent full hip replacement, I got a manual but had every expectation that I was getting an automatic. I managed through it, because I had to. Else, if I had time and opportunity to argue and go elseware I would have. I will not get stuck like this ever again. Also, I reported that the small car pulled to the left and the rear disc callipers were scraping loudly.
4.0 OkayMay 31 2018
Beware of hidden chargesLower priced than the more well known rental companies.They charged my credit card a mysterious fee with no explanation more than 3 weeks after I had returned the rental, on top of the rental costs already incurred.

I had to cancell within 40 hours of the hire date due to unforeseen circumstances. Your 48 hour cancellation policy is out of step with industry standards and blatantly unfair. I will never use your company again.
6.0 GoodMay 6 2022
Very disappointed that I had to make arrangements to return the hire car the day prior to expected (prior to 4.45pm) as there is no after-hours key return. My flight was 7.10am and I was advised I could not drop off until after 9am.

Child car seat was left in vehicle, had us questioning the cleaning element.. $200 deposit required which was not stated in the paperwork.
2.0 MediocreDec 21 2021
I booked the car using kayak, which was good! The car was good too, however Europcar has charged me for the car (which I had already paid for) and the fuel (which we filled full tank while returning) out of my deposit. I have personally gone to their store in Adelaide city and spoken about it, they asked me to call and e-mail customer care which I did. I have provided proof of my payments and haven't heard back from them yet!

Very cheap car hire. Unfortunately pick up/drop off not located at the airport. Was a bit of a mission to organise shuttle pick up unable to get through on number provided on website. Man was quite rude when we returned the car, we advised that the tyre pressure was low as came up on the dash, he was quick to say we must have popped the tyre. Didn’t appreciate his manner, however no issues during handover.
2.0 MediocreJan 11 2022
retty poor for an airport rental company. Should have read reviews first as I wouldn’t have booked with them if I had. Arrived at Adelaide airport and called for the shuttle bus and was told that the last one had left, they were about to close and I wouldn’t be able to collect the car until the next day!? WTF Nowhere during the booking process did I see that you need to be at the shuttle LATEST 5:30pm If that happens go to, I suggest going to the Budget rentals office at the airport. They had the best price and vehicles compared to Avis and Hertz (who wanted $500+$100 bond for 3 days small car rental) 😳
