January 16, 2024

Pros: Handing the keys back.

Cons: Everything. It was run by a bunch of amateurs. The rental company suggested we lower the air pressure in the tyres to get more grip because the tyres were bald and had less than minimum tread. Would recommend anyone and everyone to steer clear of this rental company

Cons: UNQUALIFIABLE!!!! Not having any type of dissatisfaction with Discovery Cars, I hereby come to speak out and express my total disgust with the Magic Islands employee (Alex) who attacked, mistreated and humiliated us.  Until the momen I have not yet received the refund of the deposit I made on December 15, 2023.

Italy
Fiat Tipo
December 12, 2023

Pros: They gave us a great car at pick-up, an upgrade compared to what we booked. As I did not feel comfortable with automatic transmission, they exchanged the car for one with manual transmission next day. Their phone line worked and the employees spoke well English. The employees could be trusted. Their price was slightly lower than the one offered by competitors.

Cons: They do not have a rental office at the airport so you need to call them when you arrive. Also drop-off could be a bit longer, as they need to come to the airport.

December 5, 2023

Pros: Just the price and car condition, and easy, fast dropping.

Cons: The car was not ready for collection at the reservation time, it was delivered with a two-hour delay. Customer service from an open car trunk, no any desk, very unprofessional service, general mess. In the instructions You delivered to customers, you write about the location of the service in the right corner of the parking after leaving the airport. They serve on the left side, you imbeciles!

Pros: Very poor service

Cons: We rang them when we arrived and were told to go to a sign and someone would come to us in 10mins. 30 mins later we went to the carpark to find them (no sign or airport office). They told us to sit and wait on a bench and they'd be with us shortly. An hour later we went to find them again. They said they'd forgotten us but could give us someone else's car. Young lads with a 'don't care' attitude. They took the full deposit (not just held) and we had to ring them 3 weeks later to get it back.

Mercedes-Benz B Class
November 10, 2023

Cons: Pick and drop off were not convenient. We waited 30 minutes once we arrived to find the company’s representatives. It’s only after we called 2 times that they looked for us. For drop off we arranged a time and nobody was there to pick up the car. We ended up having to leave the keys otherwise we would have missed our flight.

United Kingdom
Volkswagen T-Cross
November 7, 2023

Pros: The friendly staff and relaxed hand over. So easy to do!

Cons: The only slight niggle was finding where the car pick up point was. Coming out of Funchal airport, we weren’t sure where to pick up the car. The discovery rental instructions say to look for your representative in the arrivals area, but there was no one there. However once we rang the help number provided we were straight away directed to meeting point outside in the car park. And someone arrived within just a few minutes to help us! I just think maybe the instructions could be updated

October 29, 2023

Pros: Drop-off worked fine with friendly staff.

Cons: We got a tiny car (clio) instead of the ordered SUV. The car arrived one hour too late and the staff was very unfriendly and impolite. Other customers didn't reveive a car at all. Finally, we had to take that car - although we insisted to get a bigger one - and with 5 persons and a lot of luggage this wa quite a challenge . We had to visit the shop the other day to receive a bigger car. There, the staff was friendly.

October 25, 2023

Pros: The only thing that was without complications was the drop-off of the car.

Cons: We almost did not get the car, as they told us to wait for 20 minutes, than didn't show up. After an hour and a half of waiting on the spot they told us to be at, we stumbled upon them by chance on the parking, then had to wait for another hour or more to actually get the car, since they had problems with other costumers and had to solve them first. So overall, we waited for 3 hours to get the car, and the employees were very rude and not at all sorry for the inconveniece.

October 23, 2023

Pros: There is no dedicated desk like other providers like Gold Car, EuropCar so finding the agents is hard as they are not always present at the arrival terminal. However, once you get a hold of them it is pretty smooth.

Cons: Clean Car, Got a free upgrade to a nicer car but the service could have been much better as the agents are not readily available. You have to call on their office number and inform them of sending someone to you. It is quite irksome but when the agent is available he gets the job done.

October 20, 2023

Cons: No clear system for car pickup. Had to ask random people on a parking lot if they worked for Magic island. Once I found the person, they angrily told me I had to wait but didn’t indicate where. Took forever for my turn in “line” - also unclear which customers were actually next since there was no real line. It even took longer to leave the parking lot because the card they gave me has expired and it took the guy another 10 minutes to pay the parking fee that would allow the car to leave.

Canada
Fiat 500X
October 17, 2023

Cons: The only issue is that since Magic Islands is a smaller operation, they are not located at the area with the other rental companies and to determine their location of the pick up / drop off was not easy despite this information being mentioned on our booking. Once found, great job, but have a sign or representative located in rental car area in the airport to guide customers to their location.

October 16, 2023

Pros: The car was great and we received an upgrade.

Cons: The guy at pick up were a lot nice from the guys at drop off, so just beware, that they will go all around the car and find something. You absolutely have to take photos and videos of the car right at pick up, because if the guys at pickup don't mark the scratched and you have no photos/videos of the car from before you got it, they will make you pay for the damages. Take good photos, I would recommend from above and bellow each side of the car. Plus, we made a video as well.

September 28, 2023

Pros: Easy simple car hire- as it should be

Cons: Torn with this review. Car hire experience fine, no issues with service or car we received/ process. Only issue was the fact they don't HOLD the deposit on the credit card they actually take the money, first time this has ever happened to me. This means (for me) the money leaves my account and then an extra non sterling transaction is applied. So, aside from this fact, I'd go 5star, I'm a seasoned car hire user and I prefer the battered well used cars, just uncomfortable having money deducted fr

September 27, 2023

Pros: The service of Magic islands is completely uncoordinated, borderline unprofessional; they do not know what they are doing other than completing tasks ; the refund process of their 1500 EUR deposit took weeks to be returned; you have to chase them down to have them send it to you

Cons: I would not use Magic Islands

Fiat Panda
September 27, 2023

Cons: Some instruments did not light up from the first day. Car died in the middle of the road on the third day. Almost lost control because automatic steering froze. Took over 2 hours for them to send a tow truck. Initially asked me to try and restart the battery which is ridiculous. Had to go all the way back to the airport to pick a new car wasting another 2 hours. Initially they wanted me to pay for the taxi to pick up the new car. Overall a bad experience, would not recommend at all.

September 15, 2023

Pros: Absolutely nothing

Cons: Company is a scam. Their location on Google Maps is no where near the actual office, not even a 5 km radius. There are no signs at all around the airport to indicate where the office is and there are no pick up instructions on the rental voucher! Funny thing is, if you check Google Reviews you’ll find that countless people have the same experience. Never ever again am I using this website.

Pros: Expectation of quick and easy pick up was met.

Cons: Not all damage to bodywork were documented so at drop-off was a little struggle. Fortunately we had a foto randomly taken right after pick up so we had a proof that damage was already there. After showing the foto, drop-off staff was much more friendly I guess.

Cons: 1.5 hours late dropping the vehicle off. Car had multiple damages on and the inspection was done in the dark. I was pointing damage out to the employee and he didn’t circle them all. On drop off they tried to say I had done damage to the car that was there when I collected it.

Cons: I could not locate them when we arrived. They said they would be there with a sign w/ name and they were not. I looked around for 45 mins finally found them. They said they didn’t even have us on their list. Finally figured it out. I tried emailing them a bunch and had my Airbnb host even call them to let them know our flight was delayed. They didn’t just put a hold on the card. They actually took the full $1500 deposit. They are not responsive they don’t answer on WhatsApp.

Pros: The car was new and good.

Cons: At the first rent I ask about the refund on CC, at the pickup & on drop off; it should be "immediate" after return the said. When I get the second car I haven't the refund done (3 business days later). So I had to choose, loose the rent and the payment or update to the full insurance without fund on CC. The charged 50 €/day for full cover, the cost of the rent was 40€/day; total 90 €/day for small car(as Fiat Panda). It wasn't write on the contract and it is UNFAIR, no mediation from both rents!

August 17, 2023

Pros: I was using the new car, the mileage of the car when I picked up was only 650km.

Cons: The rental company charged (not blocked) a deposit of 1500 euros from my debit card, which I can understand because the car was new and rented for 11 days, but I returned the car without any damage on August 13 at 2PM and today is 2PM on August 17th and I still haven't received my deposit back - this is a strange form of business for this rental company, I don't know why they are using my money when we are no longer bound by any contract.

We had a problem with security deposit payment when picking the car and with baby seat stuck in place when dropping the car. Agents were patient and helped us with both issues. - Support by phone is reactive, polite and efficient.

Cons: I'd love to have an option to pay security deposit online. My stupid bank blocked a money transfer between my accounts because I was in Portugal; getting money to pay the deposit was quite a pain. Also I don't understand why I specifically need a credit card to pay the deposit.

In the end, I had to leave the car keys with a friend as I would have been late for my flight. The office told me I could not leave the car so I had to choose between possibly losing my deposit of 1200 or missing my flight.

Cons: I feel like breaks could've been newer, especially on an island like Madeira. Other than that, no complains. Don't want to affect overall score because the car was absolutely driveable without any issues and they don't deserve lower score than that, but if that was my private car I'd definitely exchange the breaks or look into it

Volkswagen T-Cross
March 6, 2023

Pros: The car was making a metal on metal noise while using the brakes and when turning. We called magic island and they first tried to blame it on us. They literally said, we’ve just had it checked out, it was fine before you took it. You might have used the brake to much (well have you seen Madeira? It’s al steep roads and mountains). They advised to leave the car a bit, it might have been because it’s to hot outside. When after a heavenly argument they agreed to send a mechanic with towtruck.

Cons: The machanic states that the brake pad on the front right was missing!!!! He said it is life threatening to drive without. As magic island crew first wanted.we took pictures of it. We’ve waited a few hours before the taxi came. They didn’t want to make a compensation for the trouble. Kind of a weird thing. It cost more than have a day of our Holliday. From start the car was missing a back windshield, very inconvenient driving in the rain. As well they were 20 min lates a the pick up at night.

March 3, 2023

Cons: Our flight was early so we were hanging about in the car park area for ages despite calling. I ordered a small car due to narrow roads on much of the island but received a much larger one. On return there was a suggestion that the bad scrape on the wing was down to us despite his squiggles on the rental agreement. He asked if we had photos, luckily we did. Did not like the fact that they took 1200 euros as a deposit during pick up. We did receive this back at drop off but cost us £18 in charge

Cons: Magic Island didn’t turn up for over an hour for our collection and seemed to have lost our booking. The car was quite dirty and had a fair few scratches. On return they clearly tried to scam us for rim damage and wouldn’t even back down when we showed them photos we’d taken at collection clearly showing the damage! They did eventually give up when they realised they wouldn’t win in court but the whole thing was totally unnecessary. It’s an obvious scam and I wouldn’t recommend anyone use them.

Pros: Easy to find car rental representative, whole process was easygoing, very polite car guy, he pointed out for few minor scratches on car, but also advised us to take a video of car, to avoid any misunderstanding on returning. Credit card deposit reserved very quickly, and all returned on spot, after return of the car.

Cons: We both missed that rear windscreen viper was missing. Since the car was VW Taigo, rear windscreen is pretty much flat and you do need that viper. Because of video taken before accepting the car, it was clearly visible that viper was missing, and he didn't even try to charge it on my account.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: They r definitely cheaters. They didn't show me small defect on the car body that is almost not visible and then during drop off they "found" it and pressed me to sign papers. Finally they charged 270€ from my account for this defect that they will never fix. So, I absolutely not recommend Magic Islands on Madeira. Hope this company will loose all their dirty money as soon as possible 👹

Pros: Good price and perfect car.

Cons: Long waiting for pickup the car. I prefer call via whatsapp, but I had to call by international call. The same when dropping off the car. The deposit was deducted from my credit card!! It shouldn't be. It should be just blocked.

Cons: Everything! The whole pick up and drop off process was a nightmare. One of the staff left there wallet and bag with all there personal documents in the car and we had to go out of our way to get it back to them which was a massive inconvenience. When dropping off the vehicle we had a staff member be very rude and obnoxious and tell us multiple times they had to cut their lunch break short to come and collect the car. I would not recommend this company to anyone moving forward.
