Cons: I didn't like that after paying full in advance for a $ 380 rental agreement, I end paying $ 700 extra for a SUV because they said was the only car available as I the car I reserved was no longer available due to a flight change. It was a ripped off.

Pros: Nice office and professional service. Car was ready for the pick-up time.
Cons: I wish one would have explained the operation of the car as there was no operation manual in the car. Also I had to ask what to do in case of a flat as there was no spare car. One instruction sheet for the operation of the vehicle would be handy.
Cons: Car was provided with 7/8 fuel and I was told this is full it will not read full as it is a problem with the gauge, I experienced the same issue filling up when returning it will click the pump and not allow more fuel and only shows 7/8 the car was dropped and the rep said I would be charged for my toll usage but never mentioned fuel as I assumed he was aware of the issue that was raised to me when collecting, upon reviewing my email billl they have charged me for 1/8 fuel..

Pros: the quality of the cars.
Cons: after 15 days that we returned the car we received some charges in our card related to tolls. They could inform us that it was missing this so we would be aware.
Pros: The car was good
Cons: Most rental services charge the credit card after dropping off you on the other hand charge upfront which was well in access of the eventual cost and I must now await the next credit card statement to see how much is actually credited to my account. When travelling for business I would not use your service again and for vacation travel, I will study the savings vs the competition and the extra hassle . I will be using a rent a car 3 - 4 months this a year depending .
Pros: The price is good. When we were dropping the car on October 21, 2021, another gentleman who accepted the car was nice to deal with, kind, polite and efficient, unlike of our pick-up.

Pros: went smooth
Cons: nothing in particular

Cons: took 30min in the line
Pros: If I could, I would give a rate of -1
Cons: The price, the service, the material. First, they charged me 50€ because the flight was late, but that’s not our fault is it? And then, they say the insurance I made online wasn’t the good one, we were forced to do another one… and the big finish: we traveled with a baby, they didn’t come pick us prepared, because they put a seat for the baby, so, the baby traveled on my knees… and then, at the end, they gave us a baby seat that was into pieces!! 40€ for a seat like that! I don’t think its ok
Pros: everything service quality of the car Audi Q2 and most the nice Price......Before rate the next question i say yes if you give the same car for the same price in April to end of May ...if not have to say NO DC-1968615

Pros: as per above
Pros: You get a shuttle service to the rental place and the car was in perfect condition
Cons: The deposit was very high. Toll monitor should be included in the car already.
Pros: Excellent Service
Pros: No stress, competent rental car operator, no attempt to cross sell what i did not ask for.
Pros: Ease, speed, efficiency
Cons: Hidden fees
Cons: 1- the guy showed everyone to their car and showed them how to get gas etc. He didn't offer it to me at all. I had to ask him to come out with me 2 - also was charged for insurance I already had purchased online for the car.
Pros: La voiture
Cons: Le service, les agents lors du retour de la voiture et le service après retour de la voiture !
Pros: Cars spotles clean and brand new
Pros: Diogo Gomes provided excellent help
Cons: The Shuttle on drop off was slow and reliant on other travellers dropping off their cars. At the airport the Shuttle driver didn't indicate that there was Terminal 1 or a Terminal 2 drop off point. resulting in some panic when we realised we were in the wrong terminal. The car rental is cheaper but if you want smooth fast transition I wouldn't recommend them. Also we paid for the full insurance package and there was sand from the beach in the drivers side and the staff make a remark about it
Pros: No fuss either way, fair conditions, Great location
Cons: No such feature
Cons: My plane was delayed so they made me upgrade the car saying the one i booked was not available. I had no choice but to pay triple what i originally booked. I had given them the number of my flight while booking for this exact reason and they said they dont care it is not their problem. What a bad customer service. Aside from that everything was okay, car was good and service was ok. I would not go there again just for the fact that they made me pay more and it wasnt my fault.
Pros: It was cheap
Cons: Slow service to pick up and return the car.
Pros: Nothing. We got taken advantage of period!
Cons: We were scammed into paying double simply due to our flight being delayed
Pros: Well organised.
Cons: Short wait for bus both ends. Large deposit and overpriced deposit insurance (which we did not take).
Pros: The kindness and professionalism of the staff
Pros: Good quality but too slow
Cons: Good quality but too slow
Cons: No, you should pay my money back
Pros: The desk agent was very accommodating and polite, and ultimately only charged an additional 10 Euros for the car in a higher category. We felt this was a fair resolution and appreciated how understanding she was. She also shared her charging cord when my phone was dying.
Cons: The airport greeter was a terrible impression, telling us we had to pay an upcharge and there was no option and just very unhelpful, leading us to fear the worst on what the charge would be
Pros: First class service.
Cons: Long pick up queue.
Cons: Charged me a much higher rate than was agreed, tried to sell me into taking even more expensive car.
Pros: Very easy to use. Friendly service, Good quality car. Overall 10 out of 10 for Global.
Pros: very good car
Cons: The car was not very clean and didn't have fluid to clean the windshield
Cons: That I had to insure the car through Global even though I took up insurance with Discover Cars otherwise they took a hold on my card and if there were damages they would deduct from the card hold and I would have to then claim from Discover Cars which would be a process
Pros: Cars all very new
Pros: Not a lot
Cons: Very very very slow
Pros: I liked everything, from selecting the car online, to pick to dropoff. also communication was straightforward and I was not hasseld at the pickup or dropoff sites. very smooth transaction.
Cons: Nothing at all, no complains.
Cons: Communication is bad. Takes time to get in contact. Also car pick up was badly communicated and organized.
Pros: The rental agents have been very friendly. I would rent a car again from Global Rent a Car, new car, very clean, very good price but is to long waiting time.
Cons: Was to long waitng time, to wait more than an hour is not I what I wanted.
Cons: Forced to take insurance when I specifically didn't want it. I feel cheated.
Cons: So very slow at check-in and checkout. Although lots of staff few seemed to know what to do. Stood in line and then agents brought in new clients directly to a desk and processed them before me. Waited too long at the airport for someone eventually turned up after ringing the office three times. They kept saying just five minutes which turned into thirty.
Pros: We couldn’t find the office so they sent location straight away
Cons: Had to extend by phone due to Covid and they totally ripped us off charging us for a 5 door automatic as they said they had given us a free upgrade at pick up! There was no mention of this at pick up, we still had a 3 door Fiat 500 but it had a gearbox that could be switched to automatic
Pros: Once at the station the staff was really helpful
Cons: The pick up at the airport was not great because we came in earlier than the reservation and the person you meet at the airport was not very helpful.
Pros: Very good car for a very good price.
Cons: Office is a fair distance from the airport and fairly difficult to find when returning the car.
Cons: Car was not cleaned on the inside when we picked it up. Car was also not the car we reserved, but a smaller version of what we selected and made a deposit on.
Pros: not so well
Cons: the procedure for getting the car. Cost me more than 1,5 hours
Cons: Where it’s located inside the city
Pros: Serviço de limpeza do carro
Cons: Espera para pegar o carro, mas de umama hora
Pros: One person was trying to be helpful and wasn't rude.
Cons: The rental is an improvised setup in a public garage in the middle of Lisbon. Mostly rude staff, however one was friendly trying to help with the situation. The car wasnt ready, they tried to give me a car with different specs. That didn't work. Eventually got a car more than 3 hours after booking. Wait at the airport and wait at the rental for transfers is considerable.
Pros: I didn’t like the service at all. It took us over an hour to check in and we still didn’t get a car that it was ready to be rented. The tank wasn’t full and they didn’t have a compatible or big enough to fit our luggages.
Cons: It takes very long to check in and check out plus the car rental is outside the airport.
Pros: the price was great, the car was new
Cons: the pick up time was over 2 hours, the line is not observed, locals get in without a standing in line,
Cons: not answering the phone
Pros: Great selection of cars, nice transfer to/from the airport, short time spent getting the car, car itself was brand new so was in perfect condition, staff seemed great.
Cons: Finding the representative at the airport wasn’t easy. We ended up wandering around and then asking the airport information desk where the representative usually is, which was beside the Vodafone store. No bathroom at the rental location was a bit inconvenient.
Pros: friendly and the swift drive to the airport after drop-off
Cons: the upsell/scam of the already bought complete coverage
Pros: Not at all!
Cons: See above
Pros: The speedy service
Cons: The fact that they were hard to find and had to insist by calling them. Also their address is nowhere
Pros: The car worked out perfectly. Thanks
Cons: The drop off took a little time. Conditions were unusual so this can be somewhat overlooked.
Cons: Took over 1 hour to get from airport to car pick up.
Pros: Everything was very good Professional and nice team
Pros: Staff was friendly
