Honest Car rental companies in Bucharest

Hi everyone

I was alerted by another forumer (thank you!) re the 'scams' that car rental companies use to pocket the deposit amount of about 300euros.

Basically they claim a few extra dents on the car, a few scratches, mud on the underside etc, and they pocket the deposit.

So far, thru online research, these come up with bad reviews:

eurocars.ro & the partner NBG leasing, rentacarholiday.ro, masini-de-inchiriat.org, Thrifty / Dollar.

Is it normal to also ask for a deposit for the GPS when renting it? How much is it usually?

And - anyone can really recommend an honest, reliable rental co in Bucharest please? We'll self drive up North and back.

I saw dvtouring.ro mentioned somewhere. Are they honest / decent?

Thanks very much

Regardless of company, when you pick up the car make a written note of all visible defects the vehicle has (small scratches, dents, whatever - check thoroughly) and have someone from the company sign the note. Preferably use a card, don't make the deposit in cash.

Hi alterme,

Thank you for the information.

Hi ion t,

When u said it was ok, meant that they didnt try to fleece you out of the deposit?

And any idea how much they charge for an english gps rental per day?

Thank you.

Okay, we will note all flaws, take photos, get an agent to sign our description upon pick-up, use a credit card, etc. But does anyone know a company that is generally thought to be reliable at the Bucharest airport?

Thanks for your advice!
