After reading reviews on various travel blogs, I confirm that you have to go through a local agency and not through traditional rental companies. EuroDollar offered the best vehicles at the best prices, fast service, friendly staff and no hidden fees at the end, highly recommend!

Great ! We rented an Audi Q2 for 1 week. The car was clean and well maintained. I would like to point out that we reserved the vehicle the same evening, that we arrived at 1:00 am and we were still very well received. For the return, no bad surprise, no additional cost, everything was done quickly and simply. The proposed price takes everything into account, insurance etc etc.
