Pros: A good car and was clean. Good drop off.

Cons: The pickup process with Centauro was stressful. The agent aggressively pushed additional insurance, despite my existing coverage and preference to leave a deposit. They warned my insurance might not cover repairs, causing anxiety throughout my trip. I wouldn't recommend Centauro due to this unpleasant experience.

Pros: Car was great, drop off service super quick.

Cons: Took a little while to get the car at the desk. I gave advanced booking notice of licence and passport details so the keys would be ready. I tried the express lane but was told I had to queue like everyone else, bit confusing. Apart from that, it was a good service.

Cons: You get asked to pay upfront for petrol when you ask for a full/full service….they then do not return the full amount of what you have paid….they are nothing but thieves and bandits….will never use either discover cars or centauro again. Absolutely disgusting and disgraceful corporate behaviour!!!!!

February 23, 2024

Cons: Trying to pressurise you to buy there insurance when already bought the full insurance with discovery cars.

Fiat 500
October 17, 2023

Pros: Car was as described. Few marks here and there, but they were reported in the contract. I made sure I reported an additional mark on the left wing and they accepted it.

Cons: There's an additional charge for fuel you have to pay in advance even though you intend to return the car with full tank. In my case of the little Fiat 500, it was £89. Not had this with any other hiring company. The charge was refunded when I returned the car with full fuel, although in my case they refunded me £6 less for some reason.

United Kingdom
Fiat Panda
October 16, 2023

Pros: Quick and efficient pick up and return. The car was very clean and a pleasure to drive.

Cons: Trying to enforce you buy their excess protection insurance which was extortionately priced. Didn't listen when I said I had a policy already and tried to say that it wasn't as good and this is the only way to be properly covered

United Kingdom

United Kingdom
Fiat 500
August 13, 2023

Pros: It was quick and easy to drop off the car but the collection process was very long winded with lots of cost and lack of understanding from both parties on what was required vs optional

Cons: The booking of the car I was not advised of certain costs which probably would have swayed my decision in booking a car in the first place. I only booked the car as was cheaper than taxi but after all the added costs this did not work out as planned. The car after one day also would not start considering it was brand new. I thought trouble shooting such as shutting the door putting your seatbelt on and making sure all the windows were shut was not really a great trouble shooting process

United Kingdom
Kia Sportage
July 6, 2023

Pros: Tania served us at Alicante airport and we already paid for the car and extra insurance but she said it was invalid so she made us pay an extra £240+ . She was very rude. Hopefully I get the £140 back but from leaving it with a full tank but still paid an extra £100+ when I already paid...

Cons: Tania served us at Alicante airport and we already paid for the car and extra insurance but she said it was invalid so she made us pay an extra £240+ . She was very rude. Hopefully I get the £140 back but from leaving it with a full tank but still paid an extra £100+ when I already paid...

Cons: Nothing

United Kingdom
Toyota C-HR
March 16, 2023

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Staff rude and unhelpful. Definitely a bias against English speaking customers. I will never use them again. We regularly rent cars from alicante Airport and there is plenty of choice. Staff patronising, rude and treated us with contempt. They clear think that us stupid English people don't speak any Spanish and therefore we don't understand when they are being rude. How wrong they were.

United Kingdom

Fiat Panda
January 30, 2023

Pros: The agent was friendly and the process was very quick. I had a difficult time returning the car after hours, but the agents at the desk agreed to help me out, which I appreciate.

Cons: I felt pressured, almost threatened, to buy the insurance, which I didn't need due to my own insurance already being in place. I also had a terrible time returning the car - no one had suggested smart key and I couldn't find any "box" to just drop the key into, so I was caught with no time to return the car after the kiosk opened.

United Kingdom
Opel Corsa
December 27, 2022

Pros: They provide very good condition cars at a cheap rate

Cons: The agent was a bit pushy on trying to get us to buy their own insurance which was very expensive and would have trebled the rental cost from £65 to £185 for 6 days. That made me feel anxious and doubt the cover given by Discover cars

United Kingdom
Toyota C-HR
December 24, 2022

Pros: Based at the airport,very easy pick up and drop off.

Cons: Charging extra €40 for arriving after 11pm which was not mentioned. The full cover front centauro cost more than the rental itself €20/day.

April 4, 2022

Pros: I liked the efficency, and the car was in decent condition.

Cons: I did not like the fact that I had handed over the voucher to the agent, explaining I'd full insurance. The agent did not seem to have listened to this and charged me for full insurance again, this time through Centauro. I presummed this was the damage deposit not extra insurance cover. I was not shown a breakdown of costs at the desk and told it would be sent via email. When I received the email I realised I'd paid for full insurance twice. I emailed back right away complaining. A scam !!

January 25, 2022

Cons: The first car I was given had a really dirty drivers seat like someone had been eating and drinking and dropping on the seat. Horrible stains. Centauro swopped for another vehicle that was a little better.

Moldova
Toyota CH-R
December 22, 2021

Cons: Watch out for the possible trick. The company insistently offers you full insurance, but after you return the car, they can freely detect the lack of any element inside. Without notifying you and without being real, they will charge you. Maybe it's the branch's policy to make money out of nothing, or it's an employee's intention to make you pay for his mistake. But in any case, I don't recommend it, unless you take pictures of the whole interior.

August 2, 2021

Cons: Once I had finished with the girl at the desk she sent me over to the car park to pick up the car, I had ordered a child’s car seat so had to get this from the man in th me car park office. He was no where to be seen. After 10 hours travelling I had 2 screaming children and i was stuck in the car park as I could not find anyone for over 30 minutes. Luckily another customer was dropping his car off and sent his son over to the deck within the airport to get someone. This caused a lot of stress

United Kingdom
Ford Focus
August 22, 2019

Pros: Nothing. Service was appalling

Cons: Took us over an hour just to be seen at the desk when we arrived, tried selling numerous add ons and had no interest in helping us with the child car seat. Damage report doesn’t match what they state on paperwork and try charging you for everything

United Kingdom
Ford Focus
August 21, 2019

Pros: nothing

Cons: The staff were rude. Hugging and puffing when we pointed out that we had already paid all the extras for full cover to the broker. Rolled her eyes and said ‘read the terms and conditions more carefully when you book with a broker’ ... since read lots of reviews suggesting this is a scam operated but centauro. Would never, ever use them again.

United Kingdom
Ford Fiesta
August 16, 2019

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I found Centaura very unsatisfactory when we declined their offer of insurance (we had already taken up insurance with Duscover). Be very careful when collecting a car from Centaura - check it thoroughly for existing damage. We paid the price and were charged for damage we know we did not cause. I will NEVER use Centaura again

Cons: We were given the wrong car keys so had to return to the desk. We were issued with a different car and paperwork but they made a further admin error and gave us someone else’s car so has to call us to correct the error, however after returning the car they have not refunded our fuel costs despite us returning the car full. I expect this is due to the admin error. I have issued a complaint and am waiting to hear back but no response yet after 48 hours

Pros: Nice car, reasonable price.

Cons: We waited in the airport in a queue for the rental desk for almost 2 hours. Then to only require the agent to input my passport and driving license details onto the system and take payment. All of which could have been done online beforehand. I was then charged a late service fee as the flight was delayed and there was the massive queue.

July 23, 2019

Pros: Although I booked with everything covered they wanted either 154 euros to cover any other damage or they woud take 1200 euro on my credit card until it was returned and even with a scratch on the car they would not give me back my 1200 euro, this is just a scam as I already had cover from the UK insurance, the lady said either you want to pay 154 Euro or 1200 its up to you. I shall spread this to all social media and to money saving expert UK

May 7, 2019

Pros: Drop off was quick but they failed to inform me about what they considered to be insufficient fuel. Car was very good

Cons: Despite specifically rejecting extra insurance when I booked and telling the agent st the desk that I didn’t want or need extra insurance We were subjected to 10 mins sales spiel. Because I was getting annoyed he said I was rude.I was annoyed that although I thought I had booked full/full I was told that I had to take half/half. He said full/ full was an option but they hadn’t got any. I took the car as half full and returned it half full but was charged for refuelling and extra fuel. Rip off!

April 20, 2019

Pros: nothing

Cons: I was scammed out of €126 by Centauro. I called Centauro after making the booking on +34966360360 to see if it was ok to use the secondary driver's credit card for the booking as the primary driver does not have a credit card. I was told this was absolutely fine. Upon arriving at the desk to collect the car I was told they could only accept a credit card in the first drivers name. They only way they would accept the secondary drivers credit card was if we added the Smart Cover.

May 29, 2018

Cons: hire agreement was full/full petrol. I was told the car was 3/4 full of petrol at the desk when signing up for the car. When I got to it, it wasn't even 3/4 full. It should have been full as per hire agreement. I took the car back with nearly full of petrol, Centauro would not refund the difference when I asked for it.This is very unfair as nowhere in the terms and conditions does it say they will not refund the difference.If I had taken the car back under 3/4 they add charges. very Unhappy!
