Car rental companies - why so many negative reviews?

Jump to last reply

On the spur of the moment, I booked air tickets to Iceland for 8 days in early July.

Excited, I started looking into booking a car, and first, I got a sticker shock :), and second, I was so surprised to see a huge number of negative reviews basically for each car rental company.
We have rented cars all over the world, and I have never seen anything like this, and never experienced any issues booking a car.
All I see is that - DO NOT RENT WITH HERTZ! DO NOT RENT WITH AVIS! DO NOT RENT WITH BUDGET!... and so on... whom do I rent with?

I did read some blogs suggesting to rent with local companies, but those have negative reviews as well (old cars, bad handling if something goes wrong, etc.)

For now, I booked with SIXT, because they have the cheapest prices, but they get very mixed reviews as well.

Could you please share your experiences, and whom you rented your car with?

Thank you so much for your help!
