Although I am very happy with Auto Europe in general, there are some daily charges that accumulate and make it expensive to hire a car as opposed to taking a train. I usually hire a car for 7 days for a ski trip, and only use the car to get from airport to destination and return. This year I stayed an extra couple of days, and the daily charge for SatNav and new charge for travelling to another country (Germany to Austria) meant it was much cheaper to get train (I hired a car for one day to pick up my kids from Munich Airport, so only had to pay for SatNav and cross border charge for one day as opposed to ten days).
About the service from the local car rental company - EUROPCAR
Car was terrific (had booked compact class and got Fiat 500L). Staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful.
