The process is completely digital, straightforward and fast. However, when I was picked up I was asked if I wanted an upgrade, then I would only have to pay for the navigation system (around € 10). With all the fees that was 33 €. The lady at the counter could have said that from the start. In the car, Bluetooth and Apple / Googlemaps were deactivated, I don't know why - that doesn't make sense in a car with top equipment. Car well equipped and very clean. Quasi new car. No problems with collection and return.

The pick up was quick and easy at the airport, the vehicle as described. Just as easy was the levy, took only a little longer, because more was going on. Can not complain about anything.

The Billigableger the well-known landlords are indeed cheaper in the basic price, but that turns quickly when extras are added. So many providers take additional fees of up to 50 euros for trips abroad. This is not the case with Avis, but should be previously registered through the broker. Additional services we paid upgrades or insurance are also offered here, but not persistent.

I had a really good experience with the staff, plus they have a digital PDF where you sign your lease contract and it's sent by email, which is a big plus from me. I liked that the counter stuff did not tried to sell me any extra insurance, usually it's extremely annoying when they do that, if I need extra insurance I will book in advance and not the super expensive at the counter. I had difficulties to find the vehicle in the parking lot, but that is on me. The stuff in the parking could be a little more friendly.

Contrary to the information on pickup at the counter of the car was not fully fueled but only 3/4 full. In addition, the central locking was broken so you could not close the vehicle.
