Pick-up was not optimal, since the pick-up switch is insufficiently marked. Vehicle was very good and reasonably priced. Windscreen was not clean inside.

The deposit to be paid locally was 20% higher than stated in the offer (about 2400 EUR instead of 2000 EUR). This should be calculated by additional "taxes" (although all prices include taxes). Since the credit card available to me only had a limit of just over 2000 EUR "free" I could not pick up the car without compulsory insurance of "additional insurance". Rental car thus over 250 EUR has been more expensive!

Positive: Recent vehicle. Arranging company. Take and remove the fast vehicle. Very competitive price if you do it in advance. Negative: As in many agencies a waiting time at the counter too long (45 mins) The Dollar agency was not posted anywhere in the airport: it was asked the information point. We were charged extra mileage (we had not read the limit but it was relatively low - 400 km for a week).

We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, find a gas station before you bring it back.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
