Great car and servic value but the car is not in t
Pros: Very good car and service. Great price
Cons: We had to wait 30 minutes for pickup to the car
6.0 Good
12 Feb 2017
Cons: Collection of the car was fine. The return was more problematic, the address given was not accurate and so took a while until I found the place, besides the place is dark and you can not check the vehicle properly. Reception representative vehicle passes you on the cell phone with the help of light making it difficult to see flaws you must properly. The return suddenly appears a large flashlight and checked the vehicle with surprisingly discovered almost invisible scratches appear, although I had full insurance all the time I was told that the insurance does not cover the scratch. The general feeling is that trying to trip you up. There are many rumors about similar cases, I think this issue should be handled in front of representatives in Romania.
9.6 Excellent
22 Feb 2017
Pros: Friendly and fast pickup and delivery.
Cons: When the weather is cold and there is snow a tool to clean the windshield should be provided. Waking up in the morning and finding out you can not use the car for sometime is not a good surprise.

Hidden Fees
Pros: Nice staff at the Bucharest Payless
Cons: We were promised by Car rentals.com that all fees were included. when we got to Payless they made us pay another 80 Euros for a 1 way fee and 10 Euros for highway pass fees. I am working on getting refunded.

Bad service
Cons: Employees do not understand the nature of their business or their clients. They make no effort to satisfy customers. Some cars are in really bad shape. I had to wait one hour before I could get my car. They do not have an office at the airport.

Horrible Experince
Pros: Burn that place down
Cons: The company does not have an office at the airport (like it was stated on the website). I had to look around for "a guy with a payless t-shirt". We waited for 15 minutes to get a ride to some parking lot outside the airport. The fare went from 170 euros to over 400. There were fares added for unexplainable things... Turned out they lied to me about the border crossing. The car was 10 years old, it had multiple problems such as violent shaking of the steering wheel and whole car, window wipers didn't work, blinkers had an electrical issue, the transmission was really worn out... There were pieces of plastic hanging from underneath the fender scratching on the tire... Upon pick up the car was dirty and not fueled up all the way with gas. The staff wanted to put a 1000 Euro hold on my credit card, which of course my bank denied. FYI the company is on my bank's list of fraud investigations. When I tried to cancel the reservation, I was told I'd have to pay my initial 170 euros plus a cancellation fee.. aaand find my own ride back to the airport. I was constantly told that I don't understand how the process works. Never again from Payless and my company has already started the refund process.

Probably better to look elsewhere
Pros: * The equipment seemed decent, though it might be a bit old according to Western European or US standards. Most cars in the fleet come with manual transmission, I believe.
Cons: * The pickup from the airport did not go well; the place is not well marked, and no one was waiting for me (their excuse was that Kayak does not forward my reservation to them). Had a friendly security person showed me the way, and eventually someone from the shop turned up. * They upsell their insurance, which seems to have a tremendous amount of markup.

Top tips for renting a car in Bucharest

  • One major thing to look out for when driving in Romania is that drivers will pass you on the road at any given moment. This may be particularly surprising and even worrisome for drivers from other nations as they won’t expect it to happen. In fact, overtaking other cars even during a turn is simply the norm in Romania, so just stay wary and drive defensively.
  • Hoping to embark on a road trip during your time Romania? Well, an easy to start to that is to pick up a rental car at Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport. Visitors will find the airport’s rental car counters in the passageway between the Arrivals Terminal and the Departure Terminal.
  • Your hazard lights will be your friend while in Romania. Drivers in Bucharest and Romania as a whole use their hazard lights for a number of purposes when driving. For instance, often they will give them a quick flash to say thanks to another driver in place of a wave. Additionally, they are occasionally used when slowing down on the highway in place of a turn signal to show drivers behind that they plan to turn onto a smaller road.
  • Bucharest, like so many other cities in the world, is unfortunately afflicted with daily rush hours. Drivers can usually expect to encounter the morning rush hour from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush starts around 3:00 p.m. and lasts till 7:00 p.m.
  • Book your rental car in Bucharest at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
