They did not honer my first reservation. I made sure when they called me before I travel that I will be at 11:00 pm and gave them my flight number. When I came out of the arrival gate no one was at their booth. I called there number 3 times but no one answered. I had to leave by taxi at a high rate. I called from my hotel, explained the situation so they promised to keep my reservation to pick up the car at 1pm next day. When I went to the airport, I found they cancelled the reservation. Had to make another reservation at a high prices. It is really a bad situation. They were not a professional car rental. I will not go there again!!!

I have always trusted Kayak but this time disappointed me. The company refused to give me my car and refuse to refund my money. I was in Canada and nothing in terms and condition proofs that I need international driving licence. I reached to rentalcars who were rude and refused to help accusing me that was my fault not to read the terms but nothing in the terms mentioned that I need one . I tried to call the office in Egypt from Canada but they barely spoke any English and didn’t give me any details Don’t book anything that is related with Rentalcars
