Hyundai i20 in Albania

On the first day, I am contacted by Aldi and told that the red i20 (pictured) has an air conditioning problem and so they will give me a Fiat Panda as a replacement. The Fiat Panda is on reserve. I take the Panda, supply it with 2000 lek and head to the hotel. The Fiat Panda in question is not capable of traveling long distances, so I stay at the hotel until the next day, waiting for a red Yiunday i20. It should be emphasized that the contact was not in Albania, but in Italy, so I had to communicate with people who did not even speak English. - On the second day, the staff assigned by Aldi delivered the red i20 to my hotel and I immediately noted that 4 very worn tires were installed, which are not suitable for a rental car. So Aldi from Italy promises me that someone will come the next day and change the tires. So for the second day I can't get it out of the hotel In the evening of the second day I also notice the lights off like in the photo At this point I get very angry and ask Aldi to be more serious about service because I wasted my vacation at the hotel. On the third day, which was even more serious, only the two front tires were replaced. I immediately called Aldi to get an explanation as to why the staff in Albania could not be contacted. I tell him I want a refund for the rental, even if only partially, but he refuses, apologizing for the inconvenience. As for the car's headlight, only the low beam has been replaced today. In fact, on the fourth day I drove over 500 km without high beam headlights. The only proper thing your partner in Aldi did was to refund me the 2000 lek of gasoline spent on the panda returned on the second day. I now ask your company in charge of Aldi to report this as soon as possible and get a refund, even a partial refund. The service was not suitable as road safety was not guaranteed. In addition, I paid full insurance to avoid this inconvenience. I paid 434€ for a non-guaranteed service I REQUEST a refund, even a partial refund, otherwise I will be forced to take legal action as provided for by the legislation in force.

Ford C-Max in Albania

The truth is that it was not the best of sensations...to begin with, I seem to remember that we chose the Full-full fuel option and they delivered it to us with only a few km and to return we had to adjust the quantity; It also had a bad reverse gear and it was very difficult to put it in, which was not very safe and then we did not know that they managed private vehicles. For the rest, they tried to make the management as good as possible and after other difficulties in understanding each other, everything was arranged well. Overall good, but I would like more transparency from the beginning... Thank you.

Hyundai i10 in Albania

All perfect. Not only did he upgrade the category of the rented car, but he came to pick us up at the hotel and on the day of the return he accompanied us to the airport. The car in perfect condition. The unbeatable quality-price ratio. I would repeat without hesitation. Totally recommended.

Chevrolet Captiva in Albania

The site itself is convenient, but does not contain complete information about the condition of the rented car. It starts for 10-15 minutes (either the battery is old or the spark plugs need to be cleaned). Hollowed steering rack. I have no complaints about the site. I was very disappointed with the condition of the car, and had trouble.

Volkswagen Golf 6 in Albania

Old car with many miles and check engine light on. Door not working and windows that would barely roll down. After a few days of rental the car would not accelerate anymore and no assistance was provided and the owners never answered calls and messages. Upon delivery of the car we were charged 5€ for washing and another 15€ because according to them the fuel level was not the same as it was when the car was delivered to us. High rental price. Embarrassing. Highly not recommended.
