    The car was smaller than expected as we ordered a 5 door and were given a small 2 door. The wait for the shuttle service was so long (over 1 hour) that we got a taxi from the airport to the car hire location. We then waited over 40 minutes at the service counter to be seen by a member of their bit so helpful staff. Overall a poor service from Centauro

    Terrible service and will not be booking with them again. We arrived around 11pm and it took nearly 1.5 hours to be served, we had a 2 year old who had to wait there whilst he was really tired. I do not expect to have service like this.

    We booked with Centauro because the ratings were pretty good, but our pickup experience was terrible. Be aware that the location is off-site and farther than the other rental car companies. The conditions of the pick-up building were very sparse (no soap in the bathroom, for instance) and we were given an extremely beat up vehicle. We were worried about having issues with all the existing scratches when we returned the car, but thankfully my husband took pictures of the pre-existing damage and we were able to return the car without issue. Also be aware that you will be charged over 1,000 euros as a deposit if you decline their coverage.

    Took FOUR HOURS too pick up the car. 1 hour line to catch the shuttle to the offsite location 3 hours line at the counter to pick up the car, due to extremely high demand and poor pre-check process

    We had to get a taxi to the pick up location due to the number of people waiting at airport for the bus and then had to queue for 2.5 hours to pick up the car. It was terrible!

    Agence de location à fuir absolument. Attente de 2h pour finalement repartir sans voiture. Arrivés à l'agence avec un taxi que nous avons payé car la navette était pleine. Personnel à l'accueil de l'agence catastrophique mal aimable et inhumain.
