bus to car hire village not very clear instructions
JanetSeptember 5, 2017
Raj, the agent was friendly and provided excellent customer service.
The recent relocation of rental car offices to a car park made it a little difficult to find. Google maps incorrectly directed me to a car park where I had to pay £3 to get out after a minute!

Everything. Both gentleman that helped me during my pickup and drop off were very helpful, I don't usually say it but they definitely "went the extra mile"

Manny and Tom were super helpful, and on return of the car they even had someone drop us off close the the departure terminal. First class service.
Didn't like the fact the counter within the terminal wasn't staffed, we found it difficult to establish exactly where we had to go.
JohnAugust 29, 2017
Nice car , good service.
JohnJuly 31, 2017
Friendly staff.
Staff were over helpful and too pushy to sell excess insurance even though I explained three times that I had separate cover.

I booked a manual and ended up with an automatic. No real issue but I prefer a manual gearbox

the comfort in the hyundai was not as good as the seat
CarolineMarch 28, 2017
Staff: Emma, Tom and Sam/Ben(?) all really professional and friendly. I also liked the car they gave me (boy-racer style Ford Fiesta!)
The 10 minute walk from Arrivals to the hut in the car park. Badly signposted. Also, car had 2 faults. Tyre pressure warning light came on one night. Not fun for solo female. Next a.m. checked pressures - all were correct. And battery was flat on morning of departure. I got it sorted and caught flight on time.

Nothing really - my husband found it a long walk from the terminal

The car was fine for our needs as we were visiting Loughborough University and really did very little mileage.
Didn't experience any problems but a bit amazed when told our deposit would be back into our bank within a few weeks.

speed and excellent service
CarolineJuly 27, 2015
always book through rental cars .com very easy to do
on this occasion I didn't get the car I was told so we had to pay extra for a bigger one which I was not happy with I always book through the same company and have never been disappointed before.
July 27, 2015
The overall process of booking was very straight forward and the value for money excellent. The Alamo Representative offered additional purchases but without any pressure to purchase same and their fuel policy was most acceptable. We experienced nothing less than a very courteous service.
RobertJuly 27, 2015
Service and car was good although it wasn't the car I was expecting.
Not the car I was expecting.

I could rent the car for another 2 weeks, which was sorted out over the phone without any hassle

Fantastic value car and exactly what we booked; outstanding price for a 2 week hire...
Location of car park not well marked at East Midlands; colleague on the desk not very friendly; pre-booked car seat wasn't ready or the correct model

We had already taken out CDW excess cover with you. The Alamo rep tried to get us to buy this cover again.

Location of service desk, ease of locating service desk. Cleanliness of car, friendliness of staff.
Time taken to process the paper work given the fact I had stated my flight number and therefore when I would be there to pick the vehicle up.
AnneAugust 3, 2014
very easy to collect/drop off. this is important when you have had or about to fly
unfortunately the car engine was a little noisy. clanking sounds
July 28, 2014
ease of pick up and drop off. Overall the service was very good perhaps a better description on the size of car would have been useful
Car was smaller than I expected - hired 7 seater as have two small children, 4 suitcases and hand luggage to take to birmingham airport but was a very tight squeeze and not safe for the children travelling with all the luggage around them
