I would definitely recommend Argus Car Hire. I have been using them for years now, and I have never been disappointed. The best rates, the best selection of cars, all of the airports!
Booking and the actual rental was easy
The rental guy picked us up at the airport and we were at the depot and on the road within half an hour. Yes we had to pay a bitextra for an early morning drop off (5.30am)
All in all it was good service and a nice tidy car
Very quick and easy to book a vehicle and to compare to get the best price.
Would have liked to have know the rental company though when looking at the comparisons as I only found out this once I had completed the booking and I know that Enterprise do not have good cars so I would not have booked with them. I asked for Golf or equivalent and the cars offered were Honda Civic or Hyundai - not great and definitely not as good as the Golf so I was dissapointed and will not use Enterprise again.
We flew to Sydney for 11 days to stay with family. Argus has now for the fourth time supplied us with the best deal for a car hire, twice in Europe and twice in Australia.
There is obviously always some sort of catch which was the location of the hire car company, but their shuttle service was excellent and very convenient. Our only grumble was the procedure of checking the car for damage: the employee took us to the car and asked us to check it; this is not the right way of doing it, in my opinion they should first point out all the damages that they are already aware of and then ask us if we can find anything else that they may not know about. Returning the vehicle was easy, a quick check and we were on our way again. The company was East Coast Car Rentals. A few months earlier we hired a minivan in Perth from Avis; our first quote was from Avis direct at $170 for one day; we then contacted Argus and we paid $130 for one day, ironically also from Avis. Same company, same car, just $40 cheaper via Argus!
Arguscarhire are a great car trawler site. Although my last experience with the car hire company was OK, I only stayed for four days, and had to pay for a full tank of petrol at 89 euros, having only used approximately one quarter of the tank. I wish that the car hire companies would change their policy to leave back full.
I experienced a flat tire and when I reported it the representative said the repair man was on another call and it may be an hour to an hour and a half. He was there in 30 minutes and changed the tire! Truly exceeded my expectations.
Excellent way to find cheap car rentals. If you go on the airports' website you can only see part of the car rentals in the premises, with Argus car hire you can be sure that all of them are considered. It cuts the comparison costs - without fine lines, late fees or hidden commissions.
Definetely not impressed with waiting for over 1 hour in a queue at rental desk to be attended to. Only 1 person dealing with customers and so very slow.
Cuased further delay on my onward journey.
So easy to book online and pay exactly for what was needed. Pick-up and collection was painless and drop-off was just as easy - even when I left my bag in the car - they had it back to the airport in minutes !! Very good value and service. Thank you CarTrawler.
The only downside was that the hire agreement included refueling by the rental company which was hefty.
I rented my 8th or 9th car from Argus recently, and was just awestruck. On comparison to other rental sites, Argus does the same thing as others but without drama, pretension or nonsense.
Travel is hard enough. Dont' look anywhere else. Argus is by far the easiest most reliable.
I wasnt too impressed with the staff at the avis office in Eindhoven we had pre booked a car suitable for four people only to be told there wasnt one available,he then tried to get us to upgrade at extra cost but i refused to pay more,after messing about on his computer for 20 minutes he finally had to give in.
I hired a car from 62 Euro, but I have paid 220 Euro when I just arrived to car rental office! Everytime I got the best price from the Argushire but this is the first time that I surprised so much. Why do you need such kind of tricks? I felt like to be deceived. I hope this will be the last.
just perfect, the staff which pick up and take us were very friendly and helpfull, we had a very early flight back and it was not a problem to delivery the car even though was 5am, they call us through the rental period asking us how we wanted to do and we decide we would be easier if we meet them at the office in center of krakow and if they wouldnt mind to drive us to the aiport the delivery point and was not a problem, the car very neat and brand new. well done to Panek rental car in krakow definitly will use it again.
I have been using Argus car hire for a number of years now and to date I have been very satisfied with the excellent service they have provided me with.
Keep up the good work Argus and thankyou.
The service is efficient, and the providers echo this.
Simply the easiest way to find affordable car rental quickly
I was very happy with the advice from the staff member. The whole process was organised and efficient. The car however having only 15000 km approximately and 131 registration was very tatty on the outside. I was worried in case I might get the blame for something that was not my fault even though I had highlighted all the previous damage. Overall a very good experience.
Delayed at reception for 30 minutes. Queue and slow ability of staff. Car very grubby inside and out.
No water in windscreen washer.
Booking details referred to returning car with full tank, but told to bring vehicle back empty. This is impossible during such a short period. Dishonesty of Thrifty Car Hire as they get spare fuel left in tank, BUT also charge for refuelling.
Will NOT book with Thrifty or Hertz again.
