MG HS
July 7, 2024

Pros: Quick and efficient.

Cons: The car broke down on the day after being collected, and I had to use taxis to get to important meetings! An RACQ mechanic was sent out to assist and got the car going for the rest of the rental period, but I was very nervous about it breaking down again, which really took the shine off my trip. I collected taxi receipts and handed them over when I returned the car, but it remains to be seen whether the costs will be refunded to me… I certainly hope so!

April 19, 2024

Pros: The airport shuttle to and from was efficient

Cons: I didn’t appreciate being ‘scared’ into buying more insurance. I didn’t expect it and so felt blindsided as I thought the insurance was covered already. I also didn’t like all the possible scenarios that were presented to me to encourage more insurance purchase for instance - “are you going to the theme parks cos they’re a great place to pick up dents n scratches” etc etc. I would expect that the operators should know the insurance policy that ‘Discover Cars’ has in place for that deal

Pros: It was good price. We went from A to B except some issues mentioned. The overall value would have been 10/10 if we did not face those issues.

Cons: There were three main issues with the car. First, the light inside the car was not working. We had to use mobile phones at night inside the car. Second, the tire pressure symbol was always on for some reason. I checked the tire pressure in a servo and kept an eye the whole journey. But not sure what happened. Third, last day of the trip, we had issues locking the car. Not sure what happened. I checked if the doors were blocked or something but could not find out the problem.

Cons: They said they dont know who Discovery Car is. they said you should refund the insurance money I paid Discovery Cars. Disc Cars don't have cars but Bargain Car Rental does. I paid for two insurances. WHY !!!!

Pros: They accommate all our needs. Including our last-minute requests. The had our best interests in mind the entire time. Incredibly friendly service, including the shuttle bus driver and the reception desk during pick up and drop off.

Cons: If possible, it would be more beneficial if the navigation option was built-in to the car's existing screen rather than a mobile unit (accessory). That said, the unit that was provided did the job.

When I took the car back, I parked it next minute one of the staff came over grabbed the keys out my hand not knowing if I had to sign any papers before going. I overheard a lady asking the question the answer was no

MG HS
July 16, 2023

Pros: The car was clean and tidy and as expected. The assistants were friendly. My husband, however, said he felt harassed at the depot on pick up to make a quick decision about liability insurance due to the large queue of customers also waiting. If I had been there at the depot on pick up, I would have been able to clarify our payments. Instead, he paid for Bargain Car Rentals liability cover and now we are significantly out of pocket, ironic as we went with Discover Cars as you were cheaper.

Cons: High volume at the airport + only 1 shuttle meant confusion and frustration and big queues for waiting customers, us included. Bargain Rental Cars made a quick decision to transport only 1 member of each family to their depot so only my husband went. He then had to backtrack to the airport to pick up the rest of us and we had to navigate a lot of traffic and other passengers waiting to be picked up. Bargain Car Rentals should better plan their shuttle service as they know numbers in advance.

Pros: The service was thorough and complete and looked after every detail.

Cons: The issue wasn't with the rental company itself but the third party service provider 'Discovery' who required us to purchase a third party insurance cover we didn't want but the transaction couldn't continue until we did. That was $60 that we wasted and led us to buying the additional insurance through the car rental company itself.

We also had to pump up the tires 2 days into our rental.

In light of these exceptional circumstances surrounding the global pandemic, Bargain Car Rentals should be ashamed of themselves. Future customers be warned and AVOID using this company.

But the service is what i would go back for - so please look at some updated vehicles :)
