They picked me up. Easy and pleasant transaction. Drop off was also quick and easy. I was a few hours late and they thankfully waived the late charge. Most appreciated.

Transaction was very straightforward and efficient. The rep also did not try to sell me extra insurance or other items like some other car rental companies I’ve dealt with. Very professional. Also loved the rental vehicle.

Everything went perfectly well with this provider, apart from picking up the vehicle where it was necessary to insist because the person claimed that we were not in the right place and the restitution where we had just refueled and where the person Asked us 10 euros in cash because the full was supposedly not complete.

First of all, Keddy does not have an own agency, so they go through Europcar. And their name is not noted on the front. In addition the address noted is wrong, they are at 49 rue Syggrou. After these past difficulties, welcome and support perfect. Car very well. Small flat, she was given the empty tank, uncommon and impractical.
