August 18, 2020

Pros: Very helpful and friendly staff, brand new car, ease of leaving the airport and returning the car.

Cons: The queue to be served was ridiculous. It took nearly 90 minutes to collect our car. There has to be a better way. We were fortunate that the weather was overcast otherwise we'd have been sunburnt.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
March 15, 2020

Pros: Car was covered in multiple dents and scratches/scuffs. They were x on the rental agreement but how you would know which ones were which is beyond me

Cons: Gold car is company. Maybe they will get back to me on why they’ve taken this amount without informing me once I’ve put this poor review on line

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
March 2, 2020

Pros: Very well priced

Cons: I tried to extend my reservation but could not over the phone or online - most unimpressed. I had to go to the nearest office to do so, which is a 4.5 hour round trip, probably costing me about £50 in fuel and tolls.

January 23, 2020

Pros: Friendly staff

November 22, 2019

Pros: The original vehicle had a broken light when I picked it up for which the rep was very apologetic.

Cons: Nothing.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
October 26, 2019

Pros: Had to run around the airport looking for ace, when they are actually gold cars!!! Queued for one and half hours!!! Wish we hadn’t booked online and gone with another well known car hire provider

Cons: Nobody knew what they were doing - more interested in getting the add ons at the check in desk

United Kingdom
Opel Astra
August 18, 2019

Cons: Attitude of staff to excess insurance cover at desk Car was covered with scratches - too many to check all were on sheet Staff at car was reluctant to add more crosses to form where car was parked when identified Staff on return rejected offer to check car with me. They were not with customers simply chatting. Added £260 - the same as excess to final bill once we had gone through security so no recourse Multiple scratches made it impossible to say I had added one - which I had not.

Pros: Good price and good service

Ireland
Opel Astra
February 17, 2019

Pros: It was a great price for a good car. Staff were easy to deal with.

Cons: The pick up was quite involved. There was a hard sell of the extra cover and when you didn't take it (even when you had excess cover off another supplier) it was seen as an issue. On returning the car two people did a check just to be sure they could catch anything.even when the car given out had damage all around it and on three wheels. That said, the car was good, just a bit older and marked. I would use them again because of value for money.

France
Opel Adam
January 14, 2019

Cons: Goldencar onsist on you buying extra insurance even though we have an annual policy.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
January 2, 2019

Cons: The very hit and miss process and accuracy of identifying any previous damage to the car. There were several very large marks/dents that were not already marked on the diagram of the vehicle. If we had not had been diligent enough and patient enough to return to the desk we would have most likely been held responsible. This would imply that one of the previous check-ins had not been performed properly or more cynically they were not marked on purpose.

United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
December 31, 2018

Cons: I wished the tyres pressure were checked before we picked up the car as one of them were very low (0.9 instead of 2.3) as we were travelled at night for a long distance, it was a bit stressful. But apart from the experience was positive.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
December 17, 2018

Pros: The car was good.

Cons: Goldcar are a liability. They lied about our 3rd party insurance being invalid, in a lame attempt to sell us theirs in addition. They took a larger deposit than we were expecting, and are STILL clinging onto it a full 2 weeks after we dropped the car off (undamaged and fully-fueled). Their own contract states that they keep it a maximum of 8 working days! Basically it's a week before Xmas and these idiots have blocked over 1200 Euros on my credit card!!

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
November 28, 2018

Pros: Efficient

Cons: Trying to find desk at airport

Switzerland
Opel Adam
November 25, 2018

Cons: Don't push people to buy CDW insurance! If they have a credit card that covers it, they're not going to be convinced!

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
November 12, 2018

Cons: Although the ACE booking confirmation stated the vehicle would be provided by Rhodium the counter staff were all from Goldcar. The agent was extremely aggressive & pushy re taking there upgraded insurance. I stated I didn't require as I have my own excess insurance but I got all the usual rubbish about not inclusive etc. When it came to processing the balance of the bill for hire and security deposit rather than blocking my credit card with the deposit the full amount had been charged.

United Kingdom
Fiat 500
November 10, 2018

Pros: Representatives friendly

Cons: Undisclosed added insurance of €95 to cover damage which could have been up to €1200. Impression that all damage... Seen or unseen at time of collection including previous damage would be charged to us so felt had to pay high premium to avoid even higher costs which might not have been our fault. Not obvious where desk in terminal was with tiny sign saying Ace

Spain
Opel Adam
November 9, 2018

Pros: Agent in charge of the parking lot and who handled my drop off was very efficient

Cons: Although the desk assured me the vat had been checked and was with no scratches and bumps, i found 2 by myself that where big enough to be notified. I may have been made responsible for those and charged if i had not doubled checked. Feels wrong.

United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
November 7, 2018

Cons: when booking online I paid for the car hire, extra full coverage insurance plus an additional driver. When collecting the car I was told that booking online doesn't count and I need to re-buy the insurance which was actually more than 5 times the price of the additional policy I had already bought when booking, then they re-charged me for additional driver as they said I shouldn't do that via the website (but I had as it was offered!) - second duplicate charge!!! totally DISHONEST!!!!!!!!!!!

United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
November 3, 2018

Pros: Good car.

Cons: Couldnt take deposit by amex or any card outside booking name. Meant we paid much more than expexted to gwt full insurance so i didnt need to exchnage throusands of pounds for a deposit. It was still good value but left a poor experiance.

Israel
Volkswagen Polo
November 2, 2018

Cons: I paid in advance for full insurance with full coverge, without self payment. When i arrived i paid another 107 euro for the same insurance!!! Ao that everything will be covered. Felt decived and would advice not to use this agency.

United Kingdom
Opel Astra
October 18, 2018

Pros: Nothing, I wouldn’t use them again

Cons: Forced to put an enormous amount on our card or pay £120. The car was dented, scraped and the gear box was very hard to drive

United Kingdom
Opel Astra
October 11, 2018

Pros: The car was fine, nice to drive and no problems there

Cons: Ace wasnt Ace - couldnt find the desk on pick-up because you are broker and the actual company was Goldcar We had already bought insurance but were sold more insurance, its just unneccssary and causes us to have to stand at the desk for an extra 10 minutes listening to the spiel

Belgium
Opel Adam
September 19, 2018

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Lots of paperwork, more than with other car rental companies I'm used to work with.

United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
September 19, 2018

Cons: upsold insurance as a complete con, otherwise had to give them £1100 on my credit card that they may refund in 8 days and was told any scratch would be £500 charge. Absolute con for the £90 insurance, would never use them again and would tell everyone else to avoid them

United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
August 2, 2018

Cons: It wasn’t great. I arrived at 23:32 as my flight was late and was told that as it was after 23:30 I’d have to pay another £40. Having already paid extra for insurance with discovery I was told that if I wanted to be fully covered I’d need to pay another £108. Car was fine as was hand back but the initial experience was poor.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
August 2, 2018

Cons: Returns agents were incredibly rude, got stung with and extra £108 charge when picking up the car.
