Customer Ratings and Latest Reviews
Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental car. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.
Pros: suggested for full coverage of car insurance
Cons: The girl was rude The manager was nice
Cons: The pressure to increase the insurance was overwhelming and all I wanted to do was get out of there. I should have used my credit card for Third party, fire and theft on reflection.
Pros: Excellent car. Very helpful staff.
Cons: Getting to the rental location. Need more specific directions on finding and using the hotel hopper. We brought car back 1 day early. Sent email request for cost adjustment. Waiting for reply.
Pros: 1. Friendly staff 2. New car
Cons: 1. Don't like the collection/return location 2. Prefer collect/return car with full tank
Cons: Our electric car was given to us with only 20 miles of range so we had to urgently find a place to charge it. We were unable to get in contact with green motion as they have no customer service number, it is only automated.
Pros: the guy at the reception desk
Cons: shuttle bus service kia rio scary road holding
Pros: Dropping the car
Cons: Picking up the car .
Pros: Price the best we could get
Cons: Difficult to find the place to drop off the car
Pros: Friendly, polite staff. The price of the rental vehicle was the best I could find.
Cons: The tiny office in a shed-like little building hidden away in the car park at the back of a run down hotel miles from the airport doesn't inspire confidence in the company. The car had surface marks in many places, particularly all along the driver's side. I noted as much as I could on the rental form but I still worried for the week I had it. Luckily it was OK in the end.
Pros: Not much
Cons: Waiting 6hrs for transfer buses
Pros: Nice car. Needed interior cleaning.
Cons: Had to wait over 30 mins for the shuttle bus, for a 20 min ride. Then stood in line for 45 mins to start the process. Was given the hard sell for extra insurance even though i had full coverage and my rental document clearly stated i should not accept extra coverage. Despite the extra coverage they held a huge security deposit, $2,000 ish. Had to walk to the other side of the hotel to pick up the car with 3 cases, why can't the staff bring the car to the counter? More to say but no room!
Pros: Friendly staff, ease of pick up and drop off.
Cons: The location was not the easiest to navigate, however the proximity to the M4 was great!
Pros: Efficient, friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Shuttle service info incorrect (the service they told me wasn't running and you have to pay for the one that was) and an hour between shuttles getting back to Heathrow, so i had to take a taxi each way. Plus they don't take visa debit unless you upgrade your insurance at huge cost.
Pros: Agent was very friendly and helpful - a highlight of the service!
Pros: Finding green motion was hard as it’s at a quarantine hotel… But don’t let that you put you off. The service by the team on collection (we changed car by choice during the rental) and online via email direct to heathrow site was very good. Speedy quick and helpful
Cons: Make sure you double check the car for faults as a wheel was scratched but as we didn’t have a photo we had to pay (not an issue as we have discover cars insurance) but a bit of an admin pain
Cons: They clearly needed more staff to help customers. They were busy with only one dedicated desk agent.
Cons: should be phone holder for gps. we had to buy one
Pros: Good price
Cons: everything else
Pros: I did t collect the car as they wanted £1,200 deposit on my credit card. Only found this out after the car was booked and they refused to give me the deposit back! Never ever again!!!!!
Pros: not in the best condition for a car a year old but did the job
Cons: Greenmotion explained everything very clearly and well
Pros: New car
Cons: Had to pay for hoppa shuttle, which wasted 1 hour
Pros: Customer service
Pros: Slavik in the heathrow office was perfect. The two in Gatwick are the most incompetent, idiotic unhelpful people you could ever meet.
Pros: Very professional staff and very efficient. Very easy to rent with GreenMotion.
Cons: The rental office is quite far away from airport terminals/train stations. Quite a task to get there.
Pros: Friendly, upgrade of car
Cons: No documentation after handing back the keys, email is difficult to find, no phone number. Why so hidden?
Pros: Easy to extend the rental period
Cons: Couldn’t buy out the excess with the extension. Understand why but would be good to work out how this could be done.
Pros: very little
Cons: attitude and additional unseen costs which turned it from a good value hire to very expensive
Cons: I suggest that all the cars are cleaned and washed before leasing. It is difficult to differentiate dirt and scratches when picking the car.
Cons: I am a disabled person & the access to Greenmotion is not wheelchair accessable, nor have they even one chair for elderly to dit on - disgraceful! Besides the above complaint, the car was not all that clean & one wheel under-inflated
Pros: The rental desk is providing a good service
Cons: We selected the Toyota RAV from your site, of which host 4 pax and 3 big luggages. It was informed that they did not have the type of car. The selected car type will map to a Countryman. How could you imagine a Countryman can host 4 pax and then 3 luggages? They upgraded us to a Mercedes with 30 pounds per day but with the insurance of 40+ per day. In addition, when returned car, we asked how we should handle tickets, they informed that cs will take care, end up charged us 84@ for handling.
Cons: Potentially some of the worst and rudest customer service I have ever known. Decided not to take the car in protest at poor service.
Pros: despite the initial hard sell on insurance and being hit w/a large damage deposit for refusing (Our discover car hire said we had coverage) we were treated fairly upon return w/damage to one wheel questioned for which we had pictures to prove pre-existed. The final inspection was fair and fast. car was great and handled 5 people plus luggage. skoda wagon.
Cons: i got the impression that they make their money on damages not covered by insurance..which caused some anxiety. They were all about taking photos of existing damage before getting behind the wheel for the first time to document condition. I had the car for 2 weeks logged over 725 miles and fortunately despite being from the states and dealing w/uk's narrow streets and garages etc...i didn't put a mark on the car. Initial impression-bad final impression-good! overall quick and fair.
Cons: Took around one and half hours queing and then finalizing rental before getting the car.
Pros: I reserved a BMW X3. When I arrived the Greenmotion office, the staff told me they have no X3. The similar is citroen c4
Pros: Relatively easy process, handing back the car was very easy. Could be better by having more staff at the Heathrow branch as it is very busy
Cons: When handing over the keys, no information was prided to me. Had to learn as I went. Didn’t even know if the tank was petroleum or diesel
Pros: The representatives were extremely helpful and couldn't have done more for me.
Cons: The location and size of the office is the only criticism I have. It would be ideal if there was a free shuttle bus for Green Motion customers from each terminal especially at busy times and the office needs to have more staff. It was fine for me because I picked up my car at a quiet time of day but when I returned it, there was a huge queue to pick up cars.
Pros: Car was fine
Cons: Staff use scare tactics to make you pay more for insurance.
Cons: Car choice limited
Pros: Absolutely nothing, this was the worst service I've ever had
Cons: - Huge queues that staff made no effort to reduce - Difficult to reach location, there is no bus from terminal 4 as stated online - Constant upselling by staff - Ridiculous extra costs of insurance
Cons: I queued for 3 hours to collect the car. This is absolutely unacceptable.
Pros: Efficient friendly and prompt
Pros: Clear details for car return
Cons: Not been able to finalise the promised refund for the shuttle service between airport and green motion
Pros: Manager. He was very understanding and quick to react
Cons: Desk agent didn’t explain insurance properly, and fooled me into buying insurance when I didn’t want the upgraded options. Gave me two options of insurance, and having come off a long haul flight (44 hours) I was fooled into purchasing one. I however did get a refund which was much appreciated from the manager
Pros: Always good.
Cons: everything I got ripped off and had to pay again at the rental kiosk and I had to pay for the shuttle bus
Cons: Rude and unhelpful staff refused to do DVLA check and wasted my precious time on paperwork
Pros: Rude staff / Unhelpful
Cons: Everything / Rude Staff and all they want to do is get as much money out of you as possible
Pros: The guy I spoke to in Heathrow was very honest. Very fast service. Quick to communicate via email. Very nice car and was very clean.
Cons: Heathrow office never answers the phone. Was told they are so cheap because they make their money charging for scratches etc out of the deposit. However, I didn't experience this as a problem when I dropped the car off and the inspection wasn't pedantically close. Hard to actually find the office and where to collect the car. The entrance/ exit of the car collection is through some very thin width restriction bollards.
Pros: The desk staff are very helpful and quick to clarify concerns.
Cons: The people handling the vehicles on both acceptance and return are very aloof and unhelpful.
Pros: I have always received excellent service from all the Team at Green Motion Heathrow Airport
Cons: Getting to the place was a nightmare, waited over an hour for the bus, really need your own transportation to holiday inn. Seevice agents are slow, trying to sell you all sorts of add ons, I would of booked them online if i had wanted them, when youve travelled all night to fet there, all you want is effiency in getting car,
Pros: No service provided
Pros: It was very easy and straight forward when collecting/returning the car. The staff who give you the car are very pleasant.
Cons: The staff member at reception/desk wasn't too friendly.
Pros: new vehicle
Cons: everything else. The vehicle check-out process and drop off, in particular, was a joke. Plus I incurred huge charges for minor damage which I don't believe I was responsible for.
Pros: Always helpful staff and value for money.
Cons: Very inefficient when picking up the car. Only one staff member on duty initially, several customers waiting. The process also takes too long, despite all documentation being in order. An additional wait for the car to be ready. Took nearly two hours in total.
Pros: The vehicle provided was suitable for purpose
Cons: Ridiculous time spent queuing to pick up the car because all the agents were trying to persuade every customer to take out Greenmotion's own insurance policy (at excessive cost) and then cancel existing cover after leaving the offices, and to increase daily mileage limits. Took over 1.5 hours from arriving to collect the car and driving off the property.
Cons: No shuttle to car; very expensive.
Pros: Friendly, helpful, efficient.
Cons: Distance from T4 (train and bus to get to pickup point)
Pros: Friendly and courteous front desk staff
Cons: Queue to get the car was long.
Cons: We tried to point out marks on the car at pick up but the staff told us not to worry and that the marks were not significan. At return we were charged for a 'scratch' that had been there at pick up. It was clear to us that this was a profit making exercise. We were extremely unhappy and will recommend to family and friends that they avoid Green Motion. We will also leave feedback on social media warning people against using this company as I wouldn't want anyone else to suffer like we did.
Pros: Excellent service, very professional and very helpful
Pros: when you found them the staff were good
Cons: i spent over 3 hours trying to find location where to drop car and i can speak english and even went to police station, there is nothing on paperwork and phone number is answering service which gives you wrong post code
Pros: Very friendly and they gave us a free upgrade
Cons: Hidden extra charges (insurance and deposit)
Pros: Nothing, they are a scam.
Pros: Precise and competent staff
Pros: Very inexpensive and drop off was hassle free, despite my fear of having additional costs, after checking feedback.
Cons: The £1250 deposit hold....seemed very high
Cons: Sales scheme to up sell. Sales agent was not clear in how he was charging more, what we were getting exactly. Seems shady.
Pros: The price and recent vehicle in very good condition.
Cons: It always takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to pick-up the car with a queue all the way outside of the office, waiting in the cold/wind.
Cons: I have a problem where you had charged my credit card more then you are supposed to. There were additional charge on the credit card STANDARD CHARTERED from ac **4684 @ 17oct 18 at Green Motion MYR 319.42 and another similar charge on the same date and amount. Appreciate for your confirmation if the charges were from you.
Pros: Nothing. They take pride in scamming you out of money, they are all part of it. The reason they charge you so little in hiring the car is so they get you to take out their insurance which adds about minimum of £40/day. If you use your own travel insurance, they will get you back by giving you a car which already has damage on it (which you can hardly see, unless you squint your eyes and look at various angles, you might just be able to make it out)
Cons: EUROPCAR ALL THE WAY! Wouldn't mind paying extra for a better car services which is actually on the airport.
Pros: Great pick up experience. Helpful and kind. Did not have to wait an unreasonable amount of time, and everything was explained to me clearly and well.
Cons: Drop off. Things were unclear and uncertain. The guy a the counter was both rude and condescending, both of which were unwarranted in the situation (as I was not rude, condescending, or demanding to him).
Pros: Cheaper than the "big" guys
Cons: Additional time to get to the depot from the airport An hour waiting in the queue to pick up the car Confusion about the deposit and insurance option paid through Discover car hire I asked for a Mercedes C Class and I called a couple of days before to confirm it would be available and was told it was. however I was give a massive Peugeot with 3 rows of seats!
Pros: Dreadful experience - green motion office was closed when I arrived to collect my car and I spent the night On a sofa in local hotel reception. Car was filthy, dented and scratched in more places than not and I was given an “upgrade” I didn’t want and it cost me more money.
Cons: When raising a complaint I was referred to contract small print and basically told it wasn’t their problem. Customer service and customer care is non- existent. If this is your standard for your chosen partners then you’ll soon have no business
Pros: Free upgrade
Cons: I didn't appreciate the hard-sell and the car had a slow puncture.
Pros: Simple and efficient process
Cons: Service was good but the shuttle bus service only goes to Terminal 5 so the return journey to the airport was an expensive taxi ride.
Pros: They were very honest and helpful.
Cons: Having to get the bus was a bit of a pain, as I had to factor this in to the time before my return flight.
Pros: Nothing really
Cons: The place is a scam and this is going to get ugly, You will be tagged in the social media as well
Cons: la entrega , la recojida
Pros: The drop off was quick and easy. Nothing like the over an hour to pick up the car.
Cons: The price. The time spent getting the car. The bait and switch that went on throughout the discussions. The comment that I could get into a “larger car” with GPS for the same price as my original offer with GPS separate to only then discover that the car we were “up-sold” to had no GPS.
Cons: Pain to get to and from the airport, and car a bit of a banger
Pros: Worst service ever. They promised they would deliver another car but refuse to deliver when their car was faulty
Cons: You sell an insurance package on your website which the green motion representative told me was rubbish when I commented that surely as they were represented by your website they should approve this product and why was it offered to me he said "well that's the problem with booking on line you are offered insurance products that aren't good ! I'd love to know how anyone would even know about green motion if they weren't on your website. In the end he persuaded me to cancel your insurance .
Pros: Car itself was in very good condition
Cons: Very long wait to pick the car up - about 50 minutes in the queue - not what you want at any time let along after a 24 hour trip from Australia. On return a tiny dent (almost invisible) was found on the car and so a "dent charge" was made. This may or may not have been justified. The dent was so small that it could have been there when I picked the car up - I wouldn't have seen it at the level of inspection I made at pickup time
Cons: Picked up car and the service lite was on. I drove back in to show them and he stated it was fine. On the 2nd day of the trip It said Blue needed to be added. Was never told or showed where diesel and blue were to be added
Pros: terrible customer service ... nothing to like!
Cons: They refused to give me the car I had booked ... they are renowned for ripping off customers with claims of damage to the car
Pros: A bit slow process to pick up car. However, the car was really good and they were very flexible and fast when I wanted to extend the rental for a day. Excellent value for money.
Pros: Patient agent.
Cons: Transportation to and from airport is not convenience at all and the bus fee that we have to pay. Lucky us that we have small money from overseas. Timing for pick up is not convenience at all (Need to be afternoon??). Our flight arrived earlier but have to wait for the car then we arrived our destination super late!!!! Size of the car, we traveled from overseas with big suitcases and they almost could not fit in to the car.
Pros: Very POOR and UNPROFESSIONAL SERVICE.
Pros: Not alot. Pick up guy was very helpful but knew nothing about the car.
Cons: Each person in the queue took 20 mins to be processed and I was there for 1 hour before going to the car. The discussion re the cdw was awfull. I was informed that unless i took out the extra insurance I would be liable for the full value of the car. The explanation was terrible and I nearly gave up and left without the car. I have hired many cars in many countries and this was the worst experience ever.
Pros: Good value
Cons: Leaky tire that I needed to fill a few times and dirty windows on the inside and outside which were a problem when driving into the sun.
Pros: The car that we ultimately paid up to get was in good condition.
Cons: The service, the price, the misleading information regarding insurance and mileage limitations, observing unhappy customers fighting with staff about damage to their car, additional fees, length to pick up the car.
Pros: The rep at the desk was friendly.
Cons: However, I waited in line over 1.25 hrs to be served. This was not planned or appreciated.
Cons: 2 hours in queue to pick up vehicle
Pros: The speed of return and cleanliness of car
Cons: Not giving me the standard size car I booked and wouldn't upgrade for free due to their shortcoming, resulting in changes to my trip due to luggage space.
Pros: I did not pick up the car
Pros: Good value for money quick & efficient staff
Pros: Most staff was very friendly and courteous.
Cons: I was aggressively upsold a luxury upgrade by an agent who refused to take no for an answer. I would not use the company again. It took about three hours to pick up the car because the agent would not give me the option to rent the standard card I had reserved. Then the car he upgraded me to was far too large for me and I had to return it and rent a smaller car.
Cons: Trying to catch us out with non existant damage.
Pros: Absolutely positively nothing
Cons: Everything, including the car selection which was substantially larger then what was ordered.
Cons: The company did not have the size of car reserved available. The first alternate they provided was defective Service was very poor when the vehicle broke down They have charged foe an alleged scratch which was probably there upon pick up but not visible due to the car being wet and has not even broken the paintwork. They clearly operate a business model based upon maximising revenue through bogus claims. I do not believe that you should offer them as a provider as they are clearly not reputable
Pros: Overall the people were friendly
Cons: Car was dirty on the inside and has no petrol upon pick-up. Not enough attendees when I dropped the car off - one person trying to serve 5 or 6 people. Off-airport location is not very convenient, and for that reason alone I will likely book with a company that is physically at the airport next time.
Cons: Extortionists - charged me 348 pounds for a hairline scratch that was on the care when i picked i up. They knew it was there and went to it immediately. I have created a complaint with the UK fraud office
Cons: We arrived 1/2 hour late to pick up rental car due to traffic congestion only to find that the car we had hired was no longer available as we were late. After much haggling we managed to secure another vehicle. The vehicle had only just been returned by another hirer and had not been serviced or checked over. Upon us receipting the vehicle the hirer did not go around and check the vehicle for any damage /cleanliness etc so we were forced to take as is. Our bond has still not been refunded.
Pros: Very little
Cons: Over-charging and erroneous charges. Atrocious customer service when difficulties arose. Even though I provided photos to refute charges there was no refund of money. Total intransigence and lengthy delays in responding to queries while ignoring any issue raised regarding my dissatisfaction. Their lack of response has resulted in unwarranted delays in enabling me to address matters with other parties in a timely fashion.
Pros: Customer service
Pros: Good quality of vehicle and 'can do' service of rental team.
Cons: Extra signage too rental premises as we had to ask the adjacent hotel where the rental premises were.
Cons: 1. Car was filthy inside. 2. Advertised as golf or similar, but gave a Peugeot (cheeky) 3. staff rude when returning car...
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Queue takes too long
Pros: The office was in a convenient location
Cons: The fact that there did not seem to be a good level of understanding between DiscoverCar Hire and Green motion regarding the costs that would be applied
Pros: Fast and easy
Cons: The car was a bit scruffy, plus the clutch pedal rubber was missing, which made clutch control more difficult - especillay when shoew were wet.
