Pros:The car was brand new and very nice, but I had to wait an hour in line. Also they were not at the rental car village with the rest of the airport car rental places, you had to go to the bus terminal for a shuttle as it is off-site from the airport.Cons:I was charged 170 pounds ($220 USD) for just scratching on the hubcaps on one side. No cracks, still perfectly fine and could just be polished up. So they way overcharged for something small. You could entirely replace them for that amount, but they even said it was only for 'refurbishing'. Also waiReviewed Apr 24 2019

The service was poorPros:The car worked fine. The people at pickup were nice.Cons:We ended up paying a lot more for insurance. They drop off experience was terrible. We were standing in line for a long time. They someone acknowledged that and said they would help us, they told us to sit down. We did and then no one came back. When we saw the second shuttle come up we didn't want to miss it. We asked the people at they desk and our paperwork was just sitting there. They let us sign it and go, but I am sure we would have mummified before they would have helped us without prompting. The pickup and drop off locations are satellite locations and that wasn't mentioned so it took us a long time and a shuttle ride to all the car rental placed to find they weren't there. We had to shuttle back to the airport then take a bus to their location. We waisted a lot of our sight seen no time and did get to go to bath because of all the delays. It was a negative for me.Reviewed Jul 22 2016

These are bait and switch bandits, avoid like theCons:I booked a car online for 13 pounds a day for 10 days. On arrival I was told I would have to pay an additional 13.25 per day basic insurance. As it was nearly midnight I told them I would take the car for 1 day. When I returned the car I heard them doing the same con on another customer. I rented a better car for less at Europecar just down the road.Reviewed Aug 8 2016

Pickup in London is a bit oddPros:The car was great. Hyundai i30. Drop off in Edinburgh was a breeze.Cons:As an offsite location, it was a bit awkward. The agent kept trying to upgrade me, but wasn't pushy so I guess that wasn't really a problem. It just wasn't as smooth as I expect. Stick to your guns and get the car you booked with no upgrades or price changes.Reviewed Apr 11 2016
