Very little waiting (few guests for a Saturday morning 10am surprisingly). Very pro, fast and efficient. What could be better ? I rented a minibus one way.

I wasn’t happy with the drop off method they use. There’s no one at the car park and I had to carry my luggage to the car rental office to return the car key and parking ticket. Also they try to sell me insurance coverage even though I bought damage protection from the site online

Rental services provided by Hertz (Dollar partner in France). Pickup at Nice airport easy.Friendly staff and car in great condition.Had to agree to $13k deductible due to car insurance coverage by credit card but understood that it was the process. Different story for return at Marseille St Charles around 1:15pm.Office was open.I asked for someone to come with me to check the car and release final bill.Only one person at the counter and unavailable to come outside.Had to wait 30 mn for someone else to be available.Not acceptable ...

It is a good renter. The only negative is that according to the person at the counter my insurance contract with Autoescape did not appear on the booking. For the benefit of the doubt, having no time to contact Autoescape, I took out additional insurance. I will now check with Autoescape the clauses of the contract.

Long lines and slow pickup at the airport counter. Of course, the person behind the counter will upsell you another car unscrupulously for extra money pretending that the car you booked isn't available. Then the car you pick up is dirty with bird feces all over it. One of the tires looks like it needs to be inflated... Overall, not a good experience. I will look elsewhere next time.

What kind of rental car should I get for Nice?
Having your own car in Nice will give you more flexibility to go where you want, when you want. Maybe you can’t wait to leave the big city behind, hit the highway, and go wherever the wind takes you. If so, grab the keys to one of our full-size or mid-size SUVs and explore the beautiful sandy shores in the surrounding area. If you’d rather experience the bright city lights, take to the wheel of something small. Dashing around busy streets will be a whole lot easier with a mini or compact car.

Sometimes it’s all about the journey, which makes choosing the right car important. If you’re about to embark on an unforgettable road trip around Nice, a robust and stylish SUV could be the answer.
