Good luck getting a carCons:After 40 minutes of searching the Barcelona train station for the Dollar offices, finally found it in the Hertz offices. There's a tiny little sign under the Hertz and Thrifty signs that says "Dollar pickup here". After a very slow moving line, I'm told there's no cars. Come back in an hour. We come back in an hour, amazingly they have a car for me. They hand me the inspection of the car and say "sign this". Am I allowed to inspect the car? No. We return the car that evening after a day trip and I'm told there's a scratch on it. I see the scratch, it's a few cm in length and I've never had a car company who would have counted it. So now I'm stuck with a 2.5 hour delay in my rental, and then I'm told I have to pay for the scratches that I wasn't allowed to inspect. Oh, and expect a 650 euro charge on your credit card as a hold. I've never heard of a verification this high.Reviewed Aug 7 2016

Pros:A dangerous city and I would not rent another vehicle there.Cons:Pickup location was hard to find, with a small sign at the back of the Hertz office. The vehicle itself was fine. The rear tire was slashed by thieves while we were driving in a main tourist area of Barcelona. While we were stopped with the flat we were surrounded by the thieves. We called the rental agency, who sent someone to fix the flat, but they didn't notify police. Fortunately the thieves left within 10 or 15 minutes, and there was no violence. On return of the vehicle to the agency, I was charged for the tire, plus a C$100 service charge. I resented paying for the tire, but understand it was part of the insurance waiver; I think the service charge was unfair, given our complete lack of fault in this situation. I also think the agency should have called/notified police, given it was their property at risk, and we were their clients at the time.Reviewed Oct 4 2016

Cons:the pick up office was an hertz office. At moment of pick up i was informed that neither the basic insurance was included, it was not so clear at moment of reservation, so luckilyi have a eprsonal insurance covering for all damage but if I would have not, i would have refused the renting as the risk is too much. The lady at reception was aggressive when I was trying to say anything, she was right, I was wrong, stop discussion. so excellent skill in managing customers. The car was evry dirty inside and not washed outside, but was almost new so was running well. The address of pick up oint was not clear and I arrived 3 hours late as lost in the city and they were not answering the phone, when I asked her why they were not answering the phone she said "you ahve all info, we are busy, we cannot answer always to the phone"Reviewed May 5 2016

Worst rent a car everCons:On the spot, when added insurance price was 2.2x more than initially communicated Car given was not the one reserved,but Hyundai that had some strange features that caused flat battery and left us without the car for half a day ( of course when most needed) Emergency service from Hertz that was the actual provider behind the Dollar, acted very slowly and fairly unprofessionally. End result was waiting for 3 hours in the garage for them to come with cables and start the engine. At that time they gave us instructions that should be initially communicated.Reviewed Mar 4 2017

Not much to like about the dollar / hertz / thrifty rental in BarcelonaPros:The car I received was nice.Cons:First, the rental in the Barcelona train station is not in the station but down the street. It is a Hertz Thrifty location worth no Dollar signage outside the store. It does not appear on any maps as a dollar location. The store was hot and crowded. There were 3 people handling a handful of customers, but 2 went on break. It took over an hour to get the car rental agreement. The cars are parked in a garage about a block away, but they told us the wrong floor, so it took another 20 minutes to find the car. It is in a rough neighborhood, so be careful.Reviewed May 13 2017

Terrible service in person as well - they were no help.Reviewed Jun 27 2016

Charged extra day for 10 minutes of 'delay'Pros:The car was ok, but dirty.Cons:I was charged for another day for ten minutes of 'delay' ,the lady at the counter did not mention this and as the rental agreement was from 10 to 10, and the car was returned at 10, honestly I did not expect this. Sorry i will think twice before using this service again.Reviewed May 6 2016

Very confusing pick up and drop off, poor customerPros:The car was good. Clean, performed well, seemed almost new. And the price was very good.Cons:Dollar seems to be a subsidiary of either Hertz or Thrifty. And a secret one at that, since it seems that at least some Hertz/Thrifty employees don't know about it either. When picking up the car, we looked for a Dollar dealer at the designated location. It did not exist, and no one knew anything about it. After some Googling (for which we had to access roaming data) we established that we had to go to a Thrifty location. When dropping off, we knew to look either for a Thrifty or Dollar location. Nope. We had to call customer service about 4 times. The first two times I was hung up on during a transfer. The 3rd time I was transferred at least 3 times: From the initial reception to customer service, then to a "specialist", who transferred me to a "Directions specialist" (who turned out to specialize in the wrong continent), who finally transferred me to what might have been the correct "Directions specialist", although I'll never know since I was hung up on at that point. We called one last time, and managed to establish that we were not to look for a Thrifty or Dollar location, but Hertz. The drop off process took between 3-4 hours, between driving to multiple locations and calling through customer service. I have never had such difficulty in dealing with a company. All that being said, if you are armed with the knowledge that Dollar=Thrifty=Hertz, one might be forgiven for still renting from them. My fear, however, would be that a company that prioritizes the customer's experience so low might have other surprises in store. I will probably not deal with Dollar (or Thrifty/Hertz) again.Reviewed Jun 22 2016

Car was good, insurance insane.Pros:Not hard to rent a car, car was in good condition, but the rear seat was very wet.Cons:The insurance offers. It wasn't clear what was required for insurance in Spain and they just wanted me to pay more than the rental price for insurance that I may not need. There was also a sign on the desk about it being widespread that crooks slash tires on rental cars. Why isn't there a very simple basic insurance that the company already includes in their rental price to protect their customers - they know it's a problem an are making us pay for insurance individually. The insurance is much more than the car rental, anyone renting a car should do just about anything but buy that insurance.Reviewed Oct 3 2017
