Car-hire.net offered the best price for car hire in Nice. I got a car from Alamo which was in top condition.

I will definitely book here again. The customer representatives in Gran Canaria were friendly. No fuel rip off when renting through Europcar.
Anabelle Conolly
We rented a car at Franfurt Airport through Europcar. The process of getting the car was quick and easy. The price was much lower than booking directly through Europcar.
Christopher Chase
The rates are similar to that of other websites, however we prefer renting on this website as we can choose which company to hire from ourselves.
