Potential nsurance excess costs

The closeness of the garage to the car hire office, and the condition of the car. The booklet that came with the car was misleading. It stated "on returning the car do not give the keys to anyone, bring them to office" When we returned car an attended asked for the keys, he did accompany us to the office When we insisted.

Ease of collection and friendliness of staff at drop off. Expected fiat 500 got fiat panda - not a good replacement. I was disappointed with this. At pick up the staff member was not very friendly

I paid 26 Euro to rent a (very tiny Fiat) for two days. It honestly cost me more to park it. My flight was a little early, but the desk attendant would not begin my "check-in" process until the time stated on my reservation. The desk was not empty, so this was quite irritating. The drop-off process was also quite unclear.

Easy, hassle free, cheap. Wanted a small car (fiat 500 or similar) car supplied was much larger (Zafira) which was not ideal for narrow streets etc.
