COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Pros: Searched for the best solutions for Discovercars inconsistencies

Cons: ---

Ukraine
Fiat 500
August 24, 2021

Pros: Agent was nice Easy to find rental spot in the airport

Cons: The airport charge was paid 2 times, also we had to pay extra 150$ for the full coverage because agent from Goldcar said that your coverage is not alligable, also we had to pay extra for the young driver and license under 3 years - why can't you notify cliens about it while booking?

Opel Corsa
July 14, 2021

Cons: Per avere la Casco sottoscritta in fase di contratto col broker, avrei dovuto fare un'altra assicurazione. Il personale che mi ha consegnato l'auto non era particolarmente gentile. I segni dei danni dell''auto non erano aggiornati. Ho ridato l'auto e non c'era personale per verificarla (questo alle 8.30 in un aeroporto). La cauzione per la benzina era troppo alta

Bulgaria
Fiat Panda
January 4, 2021

Pros: Generally Goldcar is one of the most problematic companies, not to say the most terrible from the big ones.I had so many problems with them, for example in Spain at multiple locations.But when not having much choice now for this last minute rental, considering the very high pruces of the other companies and the bad experience with Centauro at OPO I had in June, plus the quite good service in the Portugese islands I had in general, I decided to risk and test Goldcar Portugal.And it was OK overall

Cons: The lady at checkin was quite unfriendly(especialy at the begining when realized that I booked online around 5times cheaper than what she offered me at the counter 20min earlier).She was refusing that I've a booking stating that they dont have availability.She was insisting that Idont have booking even when I show her the Goldcar booking number and even while on the Goldcar car center confirmed that I have perfectly OK one,she was still refusing it for 5 more min! After she kept me waiting 40min

Opel Astra
March 19, 2020

Cons: Depois de ter feito uma reserva com a Discovery Cars, onde aluguei uma viatura com Seguro Full Coverage, a GoldCar recusou a entrega da viatura e o pagamento do valor remanescente em falta, tendo obrigado ao pagamento suplementar de 242,34€ que foi feito pelo facto de não ter alternativa e estar com familiares a meu cargo (uma pessoa idosa e a minha esposa grávida). Aluguei um carro de 5 lugares a gasolina, tendo me sido entregue um carro a diesel e cobrado uma taxa de 24.59€.

Opel Corsa
March 4, 2020

Pros: Nothing! I feel we were totally ripped off and overcharged. The car was dangerous due to brakes that juddered every time you used them and on our 3rd day of use the red warning light came on saying STOP because there was no water left in it.

Cons: Everything! We were ripped off because we were charged on our credit card for things we never asked for by someone Portuguese who spoke little English and we spoke no Portuguese. Very bad experience will never use GOLDCAR again .
