Business overview

Auto Europe is one of the leading car hire brokers on the market today. Our unique policy is the price of booking. We strive to have the most competitive prices in the industry.

Our story began in 1954; the company was founded in the USA with the main idea of renting a VW Beetle to fellow Americans who visited their children stationed in Europe. From that point on our concept has developed significantly. To ensure an excellent service, Auto Europe cooperates with international car rental suppliers such as Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Hertz as well as with a great number of national and regional suppliers.

Here at Auto Europe, our philosophy focuses on our customers and the quality we have to offer. It is our 60 years of experience that sets us apart from other car hire companies.

Today we are one of the leading car hire brokers on the market, providing you with rentals at over 20.000 worldwide locations. You will find centrally located pick-up spots for your convenience, including airports and rail station as well as downtown locations.

Working with well-known car hire suppliers as well as national brands means that you can easily compare car hire categories and prices online to suit your travels, and that you can take advantage of special offers and promotions and enjoy perks like a free additional driver, a GPS or an upgrade at no extra cost.

Very poor and uncaring customer service

Very poor customer service in this difficult time.

I have lost £150 for a car-hire that I was unable to take during the COVID lockdown. I have contacted the customer support numerous times and they simply point me to their T&Cs stating they can do nothing about it.

Given that my travel has been rearranged for 1 year later, I was actually after a credit note to use again for the following year as has been arranged with many other travel oriented businesses, but alas this seems to be too much like customer service for Auto-Europe.

Suffice to say that although I have found them to be good in the past, I have now lost so much money that their competitive rates are no longer attractive.

Terrible experience. Partnered with shady local rental companies

The price of our hire car trebbled on arrival due to the insistence that we take our their 'super insurance' because they would not accept American express, or cash, or visa debit for the security deposit. After a very frustrating exchange i was referred to (you couldn't make it up) page 6 of the contractual small print, stating that a visa or mastercard credit card in the name of the main driver would be required on collection. Complete dismissal from the staff 'well sir, it's all there in your contract. You should have read it in a bit more detail...' hopefully the generation of the google review will see off companies like this. Desperately frustrating. Felt like if it hadnt been this there would have been some other sham too....
