Maggiore Car Rental in Rome

Rating: 1/51

ROME -- I DON'T RECOMMEND! We had made a rental agreement from Maggiore Rome Fiumicino airport for Mercedes or similar and had paid for it. We got a Ford Fiesta that was in a very poor shape! Tires were so worn out that it was dangerous to drive in rain. The man on desk just said that there is no other car. We had paid for full insurance... and are sure there was no accident at all. As we returned the car, the guy who came to check it, walked straight to front and kicked the bumper - which was loose but you could only tell when kicking under it... OMG. What a scam! It was clear they used the full paid insurance to fix previous damage.

PALERMO -- MAGGIORE RENT: DREADFUL INCOMPETENT STUPID. Dreadful. Hired a car in Palermo in August 2017. Was forced to take extra protection. When back in UK they charged me illegally €436. Complained via email, Messenger, tweets for 6 months without joy since they even refused to answer my emails after 5 months!

Incompetent. I contacted ECRCS (European Car Rental Conciliation Service) who forced them to refund me the money! Stupid. I reckon that during my campaign in Twitter, national press, Facebook and contacting friends and associates, they must have lost at least 40 bookings. I told them many times about it and they still refused to pay until forced. Very clever management!!! AVOID THESE CLOWNS AT ALL COST!!!

Try to Scam for Damage on a Rental Car Through Maggiore

MILAN -- At first they charge your credit card for €1800,00 and we have to pay a deposit of €250,00. Arriving at the rental car deck no staff was available. The car was damaged and no damage form was there to check. Also snow chains were missing as promised in their advertisement.

Returning the car after a few days, the one member of their staff claims we caused the damage at the bottom below the door. We repeatedly asked for the damage form where all the damages are noted, but there wasn't any. So we refused to sign a new form, claiming we have caused the old damages. Be warned not to rent through Maggiore or do a extremely careful check up and make sure any scratch is noted and photographed.

VENICE -- We waited for over 40 minutes to get our car. There were lots of desk front helpers. But they spended hours on a few customers. We were sent back and forth to another desk with no result. So we fly one and a half hour and stand in line for a car for half of the flight time.

LA MEZIA TERME -- Arrived at rental desk and was told I had to buy additional insurance despite having paid for this with the rental agency. Staff were rude and threatened to call police! Vehicle was not clean, central locking broken, tyres were just about legal. Vehicle not filled with fuel and I was told it was but that the fuel gauge was broken. First thing they asked and checked when I returned was the car filled with fuel! I would not rent from this company ever again and I rent cars on a weekly basis!! Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Others be warned!!! Do not rent from these crooks!!!

Poor Customer Service and Unauthorized Charges !!!!

MILAN, ITALY -- We rented a car through Maggiore in Italy. There were multiple issues:

  1. Horn was not working. They offered us to drive the car for an exchange to Milan (2 hours away). This is unfair since it would be at our own expense and wasting our time.
  2. We received the car with 3/4 fuel tank and return it in the same way. When returned the car in Malpensa (Milan Airport) we were told it was fine, but then Maggiore sent me the bill and completed an unauthorized charge for extra fuel and the service of adding that fuel (together over 50 Euros).

We called and complained, but Maggiore does not seem to care about customers. We would NOT rent from them in the future. Other companies seem to care more about customers than Maggiore.

Maggiore Are Scammers - Avoid at All Costs

MILAN -- Tried to scam me for fuel, said the needle was broken. I picked the car up and got me to sign to say tank was full and no damage on the car. Had to walk 10 minutes to then get the car, discovered it was a shed. Made the idiot handing it over sign to say it was damaged while his monkey of a friend made silly noises at my girlfriend. After first refuel found out needle wasn't broken (obviously), called Maggiore who put the phone down 3 times and on the fourth said they were too busy and then tried to pretend the line was breaking up.

Eventually one of them said, "Just fill it to where it was when you got it." When I handed it back I was sent a bill for £103 including a load of taxes, fees and made up charges, two of them being for fuel. Avoid Maggiore at all costs and just go with a reputable company, you'll save time and effort and lots of money in the long run. (P.S. thankfully rentalcars.com listened and refunded me the money for fuel).

ROME -- The Maggiore staff will try to cheat you in any way they can. Be sure to check the agreement carefully. Also, inspect the car extremely carefully and make sure that any little scratch is in the agreement. Do not accept a "pen correction", they will not accept that as valid on return inspection. If scratches/damages are not in the original agreement you will end up paying for it. They will also try to send "evidence" of damages long after your return of the car and with that argument they will charge your credit card and you will have no chance whatsoever to get your money back no matter how right you are.

ROME, ITALY -- In advanced booked car, filled in flight on the form (they say "they check it for delays"). When I arrived to the Rome Fiumicino office few minutes before closing (because of the delay), they were long gone. No response to my emails, no communication at all. I do not recommend to use Maggiore services at all. I borrowed cars before but this was by far the worst experience I have ever had.
