Roger Cologne Train Station 29 January 2018
Drop off difficult finding the car park and a space
Anonymous Cologne-Bonn Airport 10 August 2017
The receiving staff were not cooperative.
Richard Cologne Downtown 30 June 2017
Took some use to getting the GPS up functioning the way we wanted it to go. Despite selecting the shortest route it took us on the most science route. We got this sorted when tolls was allowed to be selected. Overall a great car to drive and park and did all we needed it to do.

Anonymous Cologne Train Station 17 October 2016
Ease of booking on the web and good prices Budget tried to sell me more insurance even though I had bought it from you!
Alessandro Cologne-Bonn Airport 17 October 2016
The kindness of the lady at the counter, she was very kind, friendly and helpful. She gave me a voucher for a free upgrade the car next time i book and the GPS for free, because i had to wait long time to pick up the car. Apparently the system did not work properly and i have to wait more than 30 min to pick up the car.
MIRIAM Cologne Train Station 04 June 2016
The quality of the car and the reception of the staff The drop off. It was may/29th, a sunday, 3:45 pm, and there was nobody to receive the car at the park station. I had to go to the office at main train station in Frankfurt with my luggage and there was nobody at the office, while the others players at the office were still there.
Sandra Cologne-Bonn Airport 08 May 2016
Liked the service from the office Picking the car up was a nightmare. I was told it would take 5 mins but the whole inspection and car park exit took an hour. I had to retutn to tge office to report a fault. All very time consuming
