Pros: Awful

Cons: Everything

United States of America (USA)
Renault Clio
April 4, 2024

Pros: The size of the car was accurate to what DiscoverCars said we were going to get. The car was in good condition. I liked that the mileage was unlimited and the drop-off after we were serviced, was quick. The shuttle to the airport was also quick and appreciated. The agent at the Funchal office spoke good English so the communication was easy.

Cons: The offices should have more agents at the desk. When picking up the wait wasn't too bad because we were the only ones there, but when dropping off we had to wait for a couple to finish up their whole process before we got to ours

Switzerland

Pros: zu wenig PS für die Insel

United Kingdom
Fiat 500
January 4, 2024

Pros: Actually surprised how pleasant the experience was considering the google reviews. I thought I would be scammed for damage

Cons: I don’t think there was anything

Portugal
Fiat 500
November 24, 2023

Pros: Staff was friendly at pickup. Just be aware that they will scrutinize the car for any possible damage. I ended up getting the extra insurance from them $20E per day so not cheap. I think that is where they make there money as the car rental price was very cheap through Discovery Cars but I don't thinknthe actual car rental company makes much on it so they do push the extra coverage hard. If you don't get it be sure to get very good pictures of car as they try and get you on anything they can

Cons: No confirmation of car returning - no mail, no paper, 7 days after returning of car - deposit (1100 EUR) is still not returned

July 31, 2023

Pros: Everything about the service was great. the car itself had very little power, but that isn't their fault. They don't build the cars

Cons: Everything about the service was great. the car itself had very little power, but that isn't their fault. They don't build the cars

July 25, 2023

Pros: Great recommendation for car

United Kingdom
Fiat Panda
June 20, 2023

Pros: Nothing - all they were interest in was selling their insurance and when we didn’t take it out, they were looking for any reasons to make a claim for damage

Cons: Total rip off. €175 charged for the most minor of scratches to the lower rear plastic bumper that is on “wear & tear”. Only reason this was done was because we didn’t take out their own insurance. Never use this company again, Apauling customer service.. see photo of damaged bumper below. We now have to try and claim the €175 back from the insurance we took out.

Lithuania
Kia Picanto
May 8, 2023

Pros: Some consultants were very friendly and eager to help

Cons: Some consultants were rude, the car was not in good technical condition (we had problems with brake pads, the brakes did not work well) and we had to change a car the next day, therefore the plans for the day had to be changed. Some consultants were rude.

Lithuania

April 24, 2023

Pros: Service was good

Cons: Location is a little bit too far from town center

Latvia
Fiat Panda
April 10, 2023

Pros: easy process, efficient, helpful team.

Cons: when I was booking the car, I checked specifically if debit card was accepted. When I arrived - it turned out that I can pay with debit card only if I take full insurance. It has to be more explicit at the point of booking. The team was very helpful and understanding and we found an amicable solution, but it does create additional stress for the customers.

United Kingdom

Belgium
Fiat 500
September 20, 2022

Pros: Very friendly personnel that even offered to drive us to our accommodation after returning the car. Moreover, they can easily be contacted via Whatsapp with a quick response time. Picking up and dropping off the car was easy and quick, the car and documentation were ready.

Cons: They don't take prepaid visa cards to pay the deposit, meaning that it is obligated to take a quite expensive premium insurance (afterwards we were quite happy with the premium insurance though given the difficult roads).

Portugal
Renault Clio
September 5, 2022

Pros: .

Cons: No alternatives for the credit card. I had a credit card number with my name, a card with the name of my wife, a debit card to pay the rental fee... but the only alternative they gave me was to pay a daily insurance of more than 50% the price of the rental!

Cons: Nothing

Belgium
Fiat 500
May 22, 2022

Cons: CDW was more expensive compared to booked fee, at return they promissed to bring us back downtown but they did not, the car was different then the booked one and had not enough horsepower for the hills in Madeira but the worst was they accussed us incorrectly from damage to the car that we did not do! We had the full CDW and they said we did nog need to pay for it, but they should not have said we did damage, that was not the case!
