AutoEurope also isn't a rental company.

It is a marketing concept/ consolidator. They don't own just sell slots (very well).

I always seem receive the best deal thought them for rentals around the world. The also some now also seem to have lots of good zero excess deals with I love.

Did I mention I also love AE.

Aren't they based in Portland, Maine?

Possible, but highly unlikely I would have posted anything at all about Munich since it's been 30 years since I've been there.

AutoEurope is in Portland, Maine.

People confuse it often with Europcar,IME.

or is it only AutoEurope? is the sister company which I often post instead of Autoeurope because of the potential confusion with rentals companies that have similar names, including its European equivalents, e.g., which I have never found to offer as good deals as the U.S. based company.

Others mention Sixt and Gemut, but I have had no luck with them. I have had better pricing with in Sicily, Turkey and Poland, but not in France and not when doing one-way rentals.

>>I thought you posted some Munich address recently on another thread where you said most people rent from Auto Europe rather than Hertz -

I'm another highly satisfied AutoEurope customer. We've been renting in Europe through AE since the early 1990s and have found they offer not only the best prices, but also the best customer service. I always find their telephone people friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Many people who post here could give you examples of AE's strong points. I had the same experience as StCirq where AE refunded immediately some charges Avis in the UK charged to our CC when we returned the car. If you live in the US, it's nice to have these issues dealt with by a helpful person at a toll-free number rather than having to try to clear things up with someone in Europe.

At the end of another rental, when we returned a car in Perpignan, there was a problem with the agent wanting to charge a very big drop charge on the spot. Because we had a toll-free number for AE that is answered 24/7, the agent agreed to call and the problem was solved.

Another time we found a better rate through Hertz, and AE lowered the rate for our rental.

So it's not just price, but before,during and after rental service that keeps us with AE and now, also, Kemwel.
