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).

Pick-up instructions
After collecting the luggage, the customers have to go outside the arrivals hall and go to the right through a small gate. The customers will be on a street opposite the Rent-a-car Car Parks. The customers will have to walk on the left side for about 65 m and they will see on the right side of the road a private car park area. They will have to go through the check in booth of the car park and on the left side of the booth, the customers can wait there for the Goldcar shuttle bus. This bus will take them directly to our off airport office located very close to the airport. Clients must also return their cars to the rental office, prior to being taken back to the airport.

Belgium
Opel Corsa
November 10, 2018

Pros: Nothing, unpleasant people.

Cons: Not flexible

United Kingdom
Opel Corsa
November 9, 2018

Pros: Goldcar had the best deal for renting a car for over a week (around 55 euros!). The car was in perfect condition and they provide extra services if you need (such as insurance, baby car seat). They provide a free transport from/to the airport to/from their office.

Cons: The free shuttle transports you from a car park near the airport. It is very close but not easy to find (need to ask another kiosk around). And there is only a sign with a number to call in order for someone to pick you up within 15/20min.

United Kingdom
Renault Clio
November 2, 2018

Pros: Nice vehicle, quick return.

Cons: Hidden extras, Flexi fuel costs, full tank cost, etc

United Kingdom
Fiat Panda
October 1, 2018

Pros: We were unable to collect our car as the rental office was closed when we got there. We were delayed getting out of the terminal by passport control and they had shut up shop and gone home. Leaving us stranded at the airport. We had to hire a car through a different agency who even drove us down to the Goldcar office to see if anyone was there but in the 15 mins we were delayed they had just gone.

Cons: They were not there to collect the car. They had shut up shop and gone home.

Germany
Fiat 500 2 doors
September 18, 2018

Pros: car was clean and nearly new

Cons: I had bought online a full coverage discover car hire insurance for 139.94 euros but i was told by the agent that this insurance was completely useless and offered a new insurance from them which I refused. I was also told that I had agreed to pay a tank service for 25 euros and they added them to my bill.

United States of America (USA)
Opel Mokka
September 3, 2018

Cons: The agents lied about the reason the gas tank was not full when I was picking up the car. The office was not open when I dropped off the car; I had a ferry to catch and could not wait. I called the office several times after drop-off and no one ever answered the phone. Lastly, I just checked my credit card and have a random $530 charge that I now have to dispute.

Pros: I liked that you are all pieces of garbage

Cons: I didn't like that you are all pieces of garbage

July 22, 2018

Pros: see below

Cons: Made reservation on Kayak while travelling. Arrived and very rude and unhelpful attendant informed me I could not rent without international license. I had just rented for a week in Athens with no mention of international license. He pointed to the email that I had signed in the "small print" showing I must have an international license. And then went on to say also we were supposed to have arrived earlier in the day as our contract stated. We were charged deposit. I feel it should be returned

Cons: Only 1 person was in line in front of me, yet I waited for almost 20 minutes before anyone helped me.

Australia

Cons: Sales staff were confusing and rude

United States of America (USA)
Fiat 500 2 doors
May 19, 2018

Pros: Not much, and because I can only type so much below this is an extension of what I disliked. No contract provided before the charge of my card all of which was in Greek. No sign documents provided upon providing a full gas tank on drop-off - we will likely never see this $180 hold.

Cons: Where do I begin? Agreed to their low quote of $79, but we’re essentially forced by fear to pay over $400 for a five day rental. Representative stated that they would not accept my Alaska Airlines rental car coverage and had to pay for their full insurance instead. When I say “fear” he alluded that if there was a small scratch we would have to shell out more than $300 upon drop-off of the car. Another $180 was put on hold in case we didn’t fill the entire gas tank up. We still have a hold.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Evrything

Fiat 500
August 4, 2017

Pros: Easy to extend the car rental another day. However, it was very pricey.

Cons: The car rental agents were a little stiff. Expensive rentals and did not get an explanation of how to pick up the car, we were searching the airport for a while before realizing there was a shuttle to the rental agency.

VW Polo
July 16, 2017

Pros: Nice people

Cons: The pickup station - you have to geuss where it is. They should put a big sign at the airport and at the Pick up station

United States of America (USA)
Opel Adam
July 12, 2017

Pros: The driver, George, who dropped us off at the airport was friendly. Only worker who was pleasant. The others were not at all.

Cons: 1) Unclear fees for purchasing insurance online. We took the insurance online but was told at pick-up that the online insurance we ordered wasn't travel insurance. 2) Operational costs were not mentioned online. Paid triple. 3) We picked up our car at 15:30 on Friday. We found out the next day that our flight was delayed. We called twice to see if we could drop off the car at 15:00 on Sunday (not over 24hrs). Representative told us it was impossible. Very unaccommodating. *Will never use again.

Cons: Deceptive business practices

United States of America (USA)
VW Polo
June 27, 2017

Pros: the only positive experience was the personality of the Goldcar representative when picking up the car

Cons: condition of car: various autobody damages but no report from Goldcar listing / showing the damages service / insurance flexibility no responses on 2 mails sent to them requesting to be charged in CHF and not in EUR >> consequence: Goldcar seems not to be trustworthy and therefore it will be my last Goldcar rental
