“Stay away... stay away... stay away from Easirent!”

Jennifer S.
2/27/20

Be extremely vigilant when dealing with Sunny Cars as you may end up with Easirent who will scam you. They tell customers that their card does not cover the excess amount so that they then HAVE TO pay extortionate additional insurance cover charges! OTHERWISE THEY WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO HIRE THE CAR! When I queried the non-return of my deposit' (as I was led to believe!) by Easirent with Sunny Cars they told me that I had opted' to take out unnecessary additional full' insurance cover when I could have been refunded by them for any amounts deducted by Easirent from my deposit in the event of any damage having been caused! Nothing 'optional' about any of what occurred however when I tried to procure the vehicle! None of this excess/additional insurance cover was explained by the Easirent representative with any degree of clarity at the time of collection. I was told that my credit card 'did not work' and that I would thus have to pay an additional 'deposit' of £126 in order to PROCURE the vehicle. The 'credit card' in question is a corporate American Express so to claim it would not work for the excess amount of £1,500 is ludicrous. Given that this occurred late at night in the middle of an industrial estate and that my young daughter was present I agreed to the deposit' charge in order to procure the vehicle and get my family out of there. Had I thought for one moment however that this enormous sum in excess of 150 (and termed 'deposit') would not be refunded upon return of the vehicle in pristine condition I would never have gone ahead with the hire. I have hired many many cars over the years and have NEVER had an issue such as this. The car rental price including insurance has always been just that... the car rental cost including insurance! To think it normal to pay an additional insurance cover charge of 151.97 on a car hire of 62 quite frankly beggars belief! This entire experience has been below board and shady but I see from other conned customers that this is par for the course for this company. I only wish I had read those reviews prior to dealing with this shady operation and known that I would end up paying minimum 4 times the amount I assumed! Why is it that no other car hire company I have ever dealt with has insisted upon payment of insurance cover 3 times the cost of hiring the car in the first place?! THIS IS A SCAM!

They are misleading and unethical and take advantage of foreign travelers. Traveling from the US to the UK in October 2021 I rented a vehicle through them. It was clearly indicated in the quote that the fee included insurance. We paid in full and left for England thinking everything was in order. Upon arrival I went to the location in Manchester. I was told I would have to pay an additional 957 GBP for insurance. I explained that the quote clearly stated that it was included. There was no full explanation but a vague indication that the additional fee would be refunded when I returned the car undamaged - which I did. Well, no more damage that the poor thing already had as it had several dents, scratches and long gouges along the sides. Nevertheless, none of that damage was incurred while I was driving it. When I returned the vehicle in December, I tried to reason with the manager about the addition insurance coverage. He explained to me that this fee was charged only to US and Canadian drivers and that the extra insurance charge would not show up on their site if we had booked in our perspective countries. He did say that if I could prove that the quote stated insurance was covered that he would refund it. I had someone in the US get on-line as though they were making a booking and send me the screenshot. It clearly showed insurance was included. I forwarded this to the manager a few hours later and still have heard nothing. I tried to reason with their customer service and found out that since my booking is complete, they will not refund me the additional cost. This is fraudulent in every possible way. They clearly take advantage for foreign travelers. What are you supposed to do once you get there and realize their unethical additional charge? Shameful. I would never recommend this business - ever. I gave them a chance to make it right, but they have made it clear they do not intend to be decent and courteous and to do the right thing. I will seek further action as no one should ever be deceived in this way.

I returned my hire car to Easirent on 29th June 2020. Today is 29th December 2020 and I still haven't received my £1,600 deposit back from the company - 6 months later! When customer services answer their phone, which is rare, I'm told I'm at the top of the list and will be repaid within days. They've been saying this for 6 months. It's absolutely appalling behaviour and surely amounts to theft. Don't hire from Easirent. Life is stressful enough at the moment dealing with coronavirus, please don't add to your stressors by renting from this dishonest company.
