Switzerland
Kia Carnival
October 17, 2023

Pros: The thoroughness and helpfulness of the agent

Cons: The mess created by Discover Cars.

Australia
Toyota Fortuner
May 10, 2023

Cons: i sense i received a vehicle which was lower cost to BLUU and the vehicle i booked was rented out at higher cost to others. I selected a SUV for ease of travel, movement within the cabin whenever required, especially in the Kruger park where you can't exit your vehicle to access something in the back of the vehicle. I had a double cab, and to access anything in the back you have to leave the vehicle.

New Zealand
Audi A4
March 17, 2023

Pros: The service manager/supervisor was friendly.

Cons: Did not receive the class of vehicle booked.

United Kingdom
Toyota Fortuner
February 13, 2023

Pros: Efficient.

Cons: Car was very basic. Underpowered and low level of equipment. For example there wasn't the normal three indicators when you touch the indicator stick. No controls on the steering wheel. No cruise control etc.

United Kingdom
Toyota Fortuner
February 13, 2023

Pros: Easy to return the car.

Cons: Extremely Poor service at pick-up.

Thailand
Toyota Rav4
January 8, 2023

Pros: Car was fine, clean etc. No complaints

Cons: I was not asked if I wanted loads of extra insurance add one. I would have declined and it wasn't clear from the contract when I signed. But my own fault. Should have been more on the ball. Still feel it was underhanded though.

Australia
Audi A4
January 1, 2023

Pros: Initially I Did not get the equivalent of the Audi A4 I was promised instead was offered an A3 on arrival and my luggage at hand could not fit in the A3. Requesting for an equivalent class meant I was charged extra which is annoying as it was considered as an upgrade.

Cons: Service was fantastic and the representative was very friendly and accommodative and did an exceptional job to rectify the above-mentioned problem.

United Kingdom
Audi A4
December 28, 2022

Pros: All personnel were friendly and professional

United Kingdom
Toyota Fortuner
September 24, 2022

Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful

Cons: I had booked a Toyota Fortuner or similar but when I picked the car up I was given a Mahindra XUV, which I definitely do not think is even close to being in the same class as a Toyota Fortuner . On my booking it said Full to Full for the fuel, but upon picking up the car I was advised to not fill the car up and Bluu would charge my card later and also charge me R40 to refuel the car.

United Kingdom
Audi A3
September 8, 2022

Pros: Honesty: iPad returned to us

United Kingdom
Toyota Fortuner
September 1, 2022

Pros: I have been charged 3x the amount quoted and pre-paid, in error. I was charged as a local instead of international, for mileage, which is not acceptable and now I have to spend days following up to rectify.

Cons: Appalling error, resulting in time consuming AND EXPENSIVE administration FROM LONDON.

France
Audi A3
April 12, 2022

Pros: The Friendliness of the staff and providing total information

Cons: Due to the lack of electricity cuts and not the fault of BLUU, a backup system to speed up the process of checking out would make a smooth and short time waiting at the airport

United Kingdom
Kia Picanto
March 9, 2022

Pros: Nothing really because I wasn't allowed to take the car with me hence refund request which I was denied and told to contact the third party to request it

Cons: Fact that they refused to hand me the car because I was using a TTD which wouldn't make any difference because I had all the other relevant documents eg Full UK drivers licence

United Kingdom

South Africa
Kia Picanto
April 15, 2020

Toyota Avanza
November 7, 2018

Cons: We filled the car at the on airport fuel station and drove straight to Bidvest On arrival their operative explained that they had no luggage trolleys so he would drive us to departures - seemed very kind Until we got home and reviewed a bill for 3.9 litres of fuel plus a refuelling charge This is a scam and will not use bidvest again

United Kingdom
Toyota Avanza
September 15, 2018

Pros: When we realised that the car was too small for us, we returned to the office and the supervisor and new customer service agent were very helpful.

Cons: The first customer service agent was rude and spoke to us like idiots when we queried all the documentation. Having had a hassle free rental in Cape Town with another company, we didn’t understand why things were different and he was unhelpful and impatient!

Ireland
Ford Fiesta
September 11, 2018

Pros: Financial benefit

Cons: Lack of ease to get counter

Zambia
Toyota Corolla
August 20, 2018

Cons: Even though I paid for full insurance with DicoverCarHire, when i arrived to collect my car I was told that in the event of an accident or theft i would have to pay some huge amount and then try to reclaim it from you. not and ideal situation and one that is not made clear when book with you. then Bidvest kept telling me that in future I should book direct with them and to forget about DiscoverCarHire. they were not interested in the fact that i had paid fill insurance with DiscoverCarHire.

Botswana
Toyota Corolla
July 24, 2018

Pros: The Manager was understanding

Cons: no comment

United Kingdom
Ford Fiesta
January 2, 2018

Pros: Nothing stands out other than standard SA friendliness, which is nice.

Cons: The friendly young agent did well, but knew little about road maps or the roads to a popular destination, Kruger. The fault lies with TRAINING. Secondly the drop sign for BIdvest is small and poorly located at Oliver Tambo, so that we missed it and had to re-circuit around. The actual drop once reached was very efficient
