Documents for renting a car

Suzuki Celerio in Bulgaria

The car was booked for 10 days, there were no complaints about the car or the company during this period. We took the car at the Sofia airport; by our arrival it was already in the parking lot. The car is new !!! Very economical and compact, which is important for parking in the city. The price, booking conditions and condition of the car were pleasantly different from other rental companies. We rented a car in an office near the center of Sofia.

Toyota Yaris in Bulgaria

Once again I was satisfied with the car rental. Getting a car at the airport was organized at the highest level. Documentation took a minimum of time. The technical condition of the car did not cause any complaints. There were no problems during the entire rental period. The return process was also quick and hassle-free. I recommend car rental from this company to everyone. Next time I will also use the services of this landlord!

Toyota Aygo in Bulgaria

Everything was very easy and they are super flexible. I arrived and picked up the car later, and later returned it later and then went to fill it up, all was okay. The staff was very good. Definitely recommend! The only thing I made a remark about is the child seat. It is old and not very cozy. Not critical, but in Bulgaria everything is cheap, you can buy something new for sure. Thanks!

Toyota Yaris in Bulgaria

We rented a car from 20.10.21 13:00 to 23.10.21 17:00 (4 days). Exceptionally positive emotions: - quick pick-up at the airport, the ability to return in another place (returned to the parking lot of the hotel where they stayed before the flight to Burgas) - very fast confirmation (booked at 8am on the day of arrival) - the car is fully consistent with the photo (not an analogue) - favorable rental conditions (we additionally took insurance on the spot) - the deposit of 200 euros was returned immediately after the car was returned - a hybrid car, which is a huge plus, tk. gasoline consumption is very economical - the condition of the new car (very good equipment, many security systems)

Citroen C3 in Bulgaria

All in all, everything is good. But the landlord for the last 3 days of the rental changed the car to another, older and on gasoline, not diesel. He explained it by the fact that Citroen C3 had to be transferred to another client. Well and the car broke down for about 4 days in the middle of the lease, the replacement was given an older and gasoline, not diesel.
