Pros: Great service, very accommodating. Easirent was the best experience I've had renting a car. Their overall reviews seem lackluster, so I don't know if it was the location I was at (Newcastle) or if they've stepped their game up. I would definitely use Easirent again, and would definitely recommend them.
Cons: My old qualm is that automatic costs a lot more than manual. I can drive manual, but my buddy couldn't. I was designated driver, which is a bit tiring when you're driving long distances.

Not what I expected - very unprofessional.
Pros: The car was OK and met my expectations
Cons: I agreed a hire cost with Kayak from the USA. When I picked-up the car I was told I had to pay an extra £21. When I argued that I had a contract they somewhat reluctantly said that an adjustment would be made when I returned the car. But when I returned the car the office was closed because of flooding problem according to the notice on the door! When I called the number I was told to just put the keys through the letterbox! Now I am very uncomfortable that the contract has been concluded in an appropriate and professional manner.

Perfect car pick up and drop off, and for all my needs.
Pros: the Fiat 500 - so sweet for buzzing about visiting family
