January 20, 2022

Pros: clean and good condition of the car

Poland
Citroen C1
January 19, 2022

Pros: Fast drop off

Cons: Roadside assistance is provided only after additional charge. The car wasn't in the best mechanical condition, therefore it is possible to pay for roadside assistance to send it back to the rental company if any issue appear.

Fiat 500
November 23, 2021

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The Goldcar employee charged us for insurance incorrectly. We filed a request for a refund and they have avoided responding for six weeks. This is completely unacceptable.

United Kingdom
Citroen C1
August 18, 2020

Pros: No inspection

Cons: After booking and "checking in" online, I discovered there was almost double the price to pay when I arrived. I was pressured to pay for extra insurance which shouldn't have been necessary after paying for "full coverage" online. When I returned the car, I was rushed into the airport bus without being given any kind of receipt. Overall service was rude and caused a lot of stress. Finally, I am still waiting to be reimbursed for a full tank of petrol, several days after having returned the car.

United Kingdom
Opel Adam
November 20, 2018

Pros: Quick service and good between car hire center and airport

Cons: The hidden costs of a 19Euro admin fee and the agents pressuring us to buy more insurance to cover accident and breakdown with them when we had already paid this with discover car. They did not recognize our purchase already made by discover car to cover insurance on their car and were persistent in getting their insurance cover (which tripled the price of our original booking). They required us to accept we had to pay for any damages in the return of the car. Highly disappointing company.

VW Golf
September 27, 2018

Pros: Most of the people are very pleasant and nice to deal with.

Cons: The guy who was handing me the keys was arrogant and rude and after I refused his attempts to push the extra insurance, was unhelpful and basically said we're not a proper customer so he couldn't be bothered to give us a good service! Shame as the others I've dealt with here in the past and this time in dropping off have been great. Always one idiot!

United States of America (USA)
Kia Ceed
June 22, 2018

Cons: Our experience was horrible. First of all it took 1.5 hours to get from the airport to the center. The pick up point was confusing, there was no signs, the van didn't come for 45 minutes and there was no phone number listed to the Athens office that we could call to figure things out. We accidentally reserved two cars under one name. Okay, it's our fault but the person helping us was beyond rude. At one point yelling at us. Constantly telling us that there was nothing that they could do and they

Pros: The kid who picked us up from the airport. He was really nice and talked to my husband about NYC.

Cons: Hidden insurance costs that we had to pay or have $1000 held on credit card yet they don’t even take American Express which I used to book the car! Also the female agent was rude.

United States of America (USA)
VW Polo
October 17, 2017

Pros: Either your or Goldcar scammed us and I intend to pursue legal action if we don't get an immediate refund on the insurance we were forced to purchase twice! And I will be making several social media posts to alert the public to the scam.

Cons: already answered.

Netherlands
VW Polo
October 4, 2017

Pros: It was a good car

Cons: We thought we would find the car at the airport, but there was a transfer. The people at the desk were unfriendly. A 1100 euro deposit was requested. They tried to sell extra insurance. 95 euro deposit was requested for the gas.

United States of America (USA)
VW Golf
September 21, 2017

Cons: The fact that they do not take American Express. They cover my car insurance at no charge to me. I will never ever rent from them again because it costs me more.

Netherlands
Opel Adam
September 11, 2017

Cons: *The car was smelly when we picked it up. *Higher cost was asked from us for the full coverage at the counter and since we had already planned our vacation there was not much we could do. *When we picked it up the employee told us we will get back 89 euros if we bring it back full and I was returned only 63. After I called they explained me that I had chosen the flex return option which I had not. How come they asked me about the rest of the options at the counter and not about this one?

United States of America (USA)
Opel Adam
August 17, 2017

Pros: Great service and quick to check in and check out. Was running late to the airport and decided to take me with a rental car to the terminal. Provided me with a car on the spot without a problem when my rental needed to be replaced.

Switzerland
VW Polo
June 28, 2017

Pros: clean, new car, polite staff

United States of America (USA)
VW Polo
June 19, 2017

Pros: Great car.

Cons: No signs at airport. Shuttle took 30minutes to arrive at airport. Checking out the car took 30 minutes!!! Company put a $1000 hold on my credit card (rented cars 3 other times in Greece - none did this). But, car was great.

Israel
VW Polo
June 7, 2017

Pros: The car was new ready and clean and the agent was efficient

Cons: The issue with the insurance is not clear enough, although you sent an explanation. In order to avoid misunderstandings you fill you have to pay additional coverage offered by the agent, making the whole deal much more expensive than others. The fact that you need a shuttle from the airport consumes time and patient. To sum up- NA: Never Again

Netherlands
Ford Focus Universal
May 13, 2017

Pros: The car. it had only 4,000 km. Practically brand new.

Cons: The extras I paid for in advance were for some reason not valid. They wanted me to pay for extras which I had already paid for. I refused. Bad service.
