Maggiore Car rental Company - DO NOT USE

Magiorre is the ABSOLUTE WORST CAR RENTAL COMPANY.

I usually don't complain but beware and don't rent from them!!! When I rented the car I prepaid it, €130 for two days including insurance, but when I arrived at the counter, the guy said he was closed for the next two hours and if I wanted to take the car at that time he would charge me €30 more. I think this was like a bribe but didn't completely understand. Finally after he reopened (He was closed between 12:30 and 2:30 pm, completely normal working hours) he gave me the car.

Then when I returned the car they where also on a break and I left the keys at the quick drop off. However, they charged me an extra day alleging that the car was dropped off after the time I picked it up. I cannot believe National could associate themselves with this crooks. Apparently from my experience and from others I see here, they will do whatever they can to charge an extra buck.

I also had a horrible experience with Maggiore. I had the misfortune of getting a flat tire. Not only could I get no help from them, they had the nerve to charge me an additional 500 Euros! I challenged the charge with my credit card company and they agreed that the charge was bogus. Maggiore then sent the charge to a collection agency! Do no rent from these crooks!!!!

I have used Maggiore three times and have had great service from the office at the Rome Termini location. As far as the original posters complaint, just like in Mexico, many businesses in Italy close for a couple of hours for lunch.

Aulla, Italy
