Good value for money. Did the job the car was very basic but it was the cheapest available so no complaints. It was very clean but smelt of smoke. dropped off at heathrow was a bit hard to find.
Brian Southend Airport 30 August 2017
Was able to book a hire car from you at last minute for a wedding in Norfolk as mine had broken down. Liked all the technology in the Mercedes hired and push button hatch back was great. Air con good as weather was warm and a comfortable ride. Good tone on radio and c.d. channels. Excellent for rear view parking from internal screen N/a

Very good experience and great staff Few scratches on the car
Anonymous Southend Airport 05 August 2017
There was no damage check with a member of staff when I picked the car up or dropped it off - this worried me considerably. However the rental overall was fine and I seem to have had the deposit unblocked so it was no real issue in the end.

Europ car staff were very helpful. I hadn't sorted out my share code for my licence and managed to leave my keys in the glove box. The staff cheerfully helped to sort these problems out for me. The Peugeot 308 I was given isn't as user friendly as the Hyundai i30 that was used as an example of the class.

transaction was very good over the phone ordering the inside had been cleaned but dashboard looked like it had been wiped with a damp cloth as smears everywhere.
Anonymous Southend Airport 01 October 2014
Car having scratches and dent from previous hires and then when being checked back in I was asked about them. Why wasn't the original checklist used? I showed the member of staff my checkout list. I certainly wasn't going to have the damage attached to me. Also I filled the car up and then got asked if I had done it. The dial was exactly as I found it and the fuel pump wouldn't let me put anymore in. Dial was showing max so comment not needed.
Patrick Southend-on-Sea Downtown 24 September 2014
very good service from start to finish, I will hire from them again

The Europcar staff at Southend Airport are all so friendly and helpful. It does make hiring a car from there a pleasant experience.

Just so efficient and helpful.
Susan Southend Airport 05 May 2014
Good price and excellent car. Staff didn't take time to check vehicle with us when we collected so when we noticed a couple of scratches we had to go back to the desk to let her know. She then wasn't there and it caused a little delay for our onward journey. We were concerned that it wasn't checked with a staff member before driving off as this has been rage case wherever we have hired a car before.
Joanne Southend Airport 27 April 2014
staff was lovely and helpful.. apologetic as car wasnt the one originally booked.. would recommend using this company again was looking forward to having a fiat 500 but unfortunatley the car wasnt availabe. would of liked intructions for car. and also just for piece of mind someone when dropping car off to go over confirming no damage whilst i was hiring .
Timothy Southend Airport 16 April 2014
Quick and easy to pick up, counter staff excellent Nothing
Anonymous Southend Airport 15 March 2014
The rental desk was easy to find at the airport. I would definitely hire a car from there again. The back seats of the model of the car I hired did not fold back which was very disappointing as I needed to transport a push bike in the back. It also delayed my journey. I subsequently reported this to the desk and it was down to the model of the car I hired.
Anonymous Southend Airport 13 February 2014
the free upgrade to a Mariva definitely did not like the new style 'handbrake' system i.e. a 'P' switch. There was nothing on the instructions to help with applying it! Cuts out pretty easily too.
Anonymous Southend Airport 05 February 2014
Staff were very helpful, the vehicle was clean and in excellent condition The car was supposed to be full of fuel but when I got to it it was not, I had to follow one of your staff to a petrol station to have the fuel topped up, this wasted a good half hour of my time which meant I was late in getting to my destination. The car was not physically checked when I returned it, this could have led to a problem if there was a disagreement about it's condition on return, thankfully no issue occurred.

We thought we were getting a Renault Megane and were offered a Fiat 500L which we thought was a small car however after looking at it, it was fine. Car fuel showed only 7/8 full we phoned europ car and they said to only fill it up to that level on return, very difficult to judge so we gave them a full tank of fuel on return !!!
Anonymous Southend Airport 28 January 2014
The young man on the desk was very polite and helpful The car had not been cleaned, but luckily it was not too bad.
