size of the car, air condition

PhilMay 17, 2017
Having the choice of an upgrade at a very discounted price, the car was excellent and the lovely lady who served us at Bologna who was brilliant, very friendly and extremely helpful.
The car-park was very tight to get out of, too many cars blocking parked vehicles in.

Decent experience
I was encouraged not to return the car with a full tank, they would fill it at a reasonable rate. I await the charge...

Overall cost was too high.

Front and back park assist
Very small boot. I was told i was getting an upgrade and then I got a downgrade. I am not familiar with the names of the volkswagen range.

I would have preferred the car I booked and not a similar model

Ease of collection
Finding the car and the budget kiosk in car park was very difficult. Better signposting would help

Adequate room.
Fiat 500 l is weazy. The gear shift was notchy. Not a looker. Fit and finish inferior and lots of creaks. Happy to hand it back. The L is not an attractive looking car.

Nice little car, easy drop off with polite young man.
Attitude on main car rentals desk, difficulty locating car due to poor explanation of location.
MichaelSeptember 16, 2014
Efficiency was good. Car was in a good condition and clean. Easily accessable
Car had a non- functioning cigarette lighter which meant that we could not use the GPS. Another thing is that you book one make and end up getting another make --- a smaller one.
August 24, 2014
Efficiency and professionnalism of the commercial staff Efficiency and professionnalism of the assitance staff
Hard to contact the agency [phone often busy] Disappointed of FIAT : One car with electric problem changed with an other car with an other electric problem
IanAugust 22, 2014
Very easy to hire
Not taken to the car, not given advice on controls or the vehicle checked before we left.
OyvindJuly 21, 2014
Quick and efficient delivery and redelivery. Car ran well.
The car was dirty, had quite a few scratches. The concern I had, if any, was that the redelivery process was very sketchy, just drop the car and leave the keys, no checking. One is somewhat concerned to be left open to claims for damage or even low fuel that is very difficult to protect against. Trust is good, checking is better!
July 3, 2014
Great service and car, will definitely use you again. Thank you.
ReniJune 23, 2014
So far so good. Budget seems to be working really hard to serve customers and differ from the "other" companies. I just really hope there will be no other hidden charges in the months ahead.
MichaelJune 9, 2014
Very good service at a fair price.
New location of parking for hire cars at Bologna airport whilst easy enough to find is all very tight for space. Everyone is squeezed in. This is a comment not a complaint.
MatthewMay 27, 2014
Only issue I had was the car was not washed on the outside, everything else was great Matt O'Dwyer
LloydMay 25, 2014
Efficient staff
Long walk to the car. If it was raining you would be soaked. There is no cover at all. Car collection area is very dismal and tight to get out of.
DariuszMay 19, 2014
The car was new (below 1 year of use) and fully enough for my needs.
I had a problem with 12V lighter socket supply - the fuse were broken (nr 85 on diagram at user manual). For this reason I had a trouble to use my GPS receiver / auto navigation.
JohnApril 23, 2014
Fantastic. Bit of a wait to pick up as only one person on desk dealing with cars in and out. That said lovely helpful staff and fantastic car, even got a couple of restaurant recommendations ! Would use again and recommend to anyone flying to Bologna !
Should have drop off in car park it would be much easier.
April 12, 2014
ordered a panda type car got a lovely vw polo fantastic on diesel
January 27, 2014
Although there were signs to the rental carpark, it was not easy to find the car because there were no specific signs were one find the budget/avis cars. That took some time. Nevertheless, I was very satisfied.
