Our bill was incredibly complicated due different currency and the split rental (we reserved all the way to Queenstown via carrentals.com but Europcar splits the rental in 2 as you don’t take the car via the ferry.) It was very difficult to figure out the charges and ended up being way more than the quote until we got it fixed. Had we not been vigilant, we would’ve paid twice what we were quoted. The staff were very nice, the car was perfect and the drop off was easy. Besides the initial difficulties with the bill, it was seamless.

Pick up was closed when arriving due as flight was delayed. Nil instructions given when collecting the car which was a hybrid, had to read the manual to find out the electric recharging and fuel system. Found packet's of food under the front seats No offer of less price when collecting.

When I picked up my car at Auckland airport, booked through Blenheim Marlborough, I was informed that I could not take the car on the ferry from Wellington to Picton. I had to drop the car in Wellington, take the ferry as a foot passenger and pick up a new car in Picton. I would make sense to informed customers of this procedure at the time of the initial reservation.

Had quite a wait before being served. One person at the desk, problems with two customers in front. Took a while for us to get sorted and by the time we were done a very big backlog of customers. nonetheless service counter person was pleasant and the car upgrade was very much appreciated.Actual reservation and booking paperwork was all ok.

I didn't realise until I paid that my booking was in USA dollars! so very surprised when my hire cost double that first thought. Unacceptable marketing. No one at the desk on arrival - waited 15 mins for assistant to show up. The car groomers stayed in the office very concerned we were waiting - they at least tried to help us. When the girl returned to the desk - no apology for keeping us waiting, no customer service whatsoever, surly and disinterested. Answered telephone calls in the middle of our pick up further delaying us. When I returned the car at the end of the day - no one at the desk again, no instructions as to where to put keys. Totally unsatisfactory experience. I won't use Europcar ever again.
