My only problem was I found out after I rented the car, I was not allowed to take it to Kangaroo Island. That was one of the top things on my list of things to do, and I didn't get to do it.

There are always those hidden charges, I booked through CarRentals.com with a rate that i expected to pay only to pick up car at Europcars and find all these extra charges. You pay insurance at time of booking only to find that this has nothing to do with Europcar and risk the battle if you did require the service. If Europcars are going to use these sites for bookings why can't they get together and advertise correct rates

The final price was not just higher but 50% higher!!! due to an unexpected extra fees ( and I am not talking about insurance but basic price). Booster was unsafe to use. Bad smell in the car on the pick up that was hard to get rid of.

Very happy with the car, reasonably priced, easy registration/paper work, no charge for extra driver, and friendly staff.
