August 11, 2023

Pros: The car was outstanding.

Cons: It took a long time to get in touch with the front desk to get our pick up organized from the airport. The guy who drove the van was quite rude to us, especially my partner. The car was given to us with a full tank, however the gauge went down a quarter of a tank after a short drive to the hotel. When returning the vehicle, was overheard the couple ahead of us reporting a similar issue but the representative they spoke to was quite rude and dismissive so we did not push the issue.

August 2, 2023

Cons: Magic Island is a company that is well organized - all operations and transfers run smoothly. However, it seems to be their side business to rip off the customers. When returning the car, 2 other customers were confronted at the same time with the same problem as us: As soon as you drive up, the employee stands there with a cleaning rag and looks for paint damage, which he then also finds. Damage that you have neither caused, nor can prove that they were already there. Apart from that, the c

United Kingdom
Mercedes-Benz A Class
August 1, 2023

Pros: Car was great, clean and in perfect condition. Check in was fairly smooth once we were picked up. Location is off premise, and we had to call to inform them we were there so make sure you can make international calls.

Cons: You have to pay a €35 extra fee to drop off the car outside of regular hours. I don't mind the fee but it was as much as a days rental, which felt excessive. Unfortunately, someone hit our car while we were parked. Luckily, I'd purchased full coverage so wasn't worried about it. When I emailed Magic Island to discuss, their response was rude and condescending. When I asked if they could clarify their response, they were even more rude and condescending.

Spain
Volkswagen T-Cross
August 1, 2023

Pros: -Price and service

Cons: -In terms of defects of the car. They take note of every single spot or mini mark (almost you need a magnifying glass to see it) and therefore it is impossible to control if you have been the responsible for that. It generates distrust.

June 18, 2023

Cons: Onestly, they're villains, unfair. When i picked the car, they let me check just the car body without giving a look to the bumper or under the car. When i dropped the car, they didn't look at car body, they were waiting for us to look only to the bumper where they found scratches (in my opinion they were already there and they knew it. this justifies why they didn't let me check under when giving me the car). Really bad experience

December 10, 2022

Cons: After we picked up the car one of the employees of Magic Island car rental used the information from the car form to look my friend (women) up on Facebook and started sending her messages multiple times. I’m sure this is against the European privacy laws for company’s. When we delivered the car back he brought us to the drop of point at the airport but he drove really fast and unsafe.

November 28, 2022

Pros: The company didn't accept my card to pay the deposit (1200 euros) and, as it was 8pm, the person who managed the reservation was rushing us and didn't propose alternatives, other than paying 80 euros per person and per day to enable one of my friends to make the reservation and drive the car instead of me. We couldn't get back our reservation money (~140 euros). We went to another car renting company in the airport, which let us pay easily the deposit (only 100 euros) and where very helpful.

Cons: The rush, the absence of help and understanding and the very high deposit.

Cons: As others have noted, when dropping off the vehicle magically damage is found on the tire of all places. We were not told to inspect the tire at our initial pickup because who would think to?

Volkswagen Polo
September 17, 2022

Pros: The girl at pickup was prompt and gave us a good car, the best we had in the Azores.

Cons: The bearded guy at drop-off was the most thorough person I've ever seen in car hire. He checked every inch of that car, even underneath. He even tried to charge us for a tank that was 99% full at drop-off, the same as we had picked up. Then, after half an hour of stress trying to find our photo of proof, he tried to pretend to be nice. He wasn't. He also wouldn't allow us to drop off the car at the same time we picked it up.

July 6, 2022

Pros: Fast communication

Cons: They charged big amount of money for a negligible (almost invisible) bend of doors. Not sure, if it didn't exist when a car was rented. They also charged additional 2 days rental cost for "Vehicle stoppage to repair the damage". Lucky me, I had an insurance at DiscoverCars

Pros: Upon our arrival at the airport we had to go to Lost and Found to report our baby seat which stayed behind at the airport we took off . In result, we were a bit late for the pick up and explained our unfortunate situation, and reason for the delay . In response , Magic Island Team offered us a free of charge baby seat during our rental period and also waited patiently for us despite the delay.

Pros: Fast and friendly service. The car was brand new, excelent.

Cons: There was a miss comunication between Discovery car and Magic Islands. I asked for a delay in pick up for Discovery cars, it was confirmed (was only recorded in vaucher by my request, should be by defaut ...) and Magic Islands pick up service was not aware of this change .. Aynway we was able to quit at initial hour from airport. The return of deposit is slow .. After 1 week i do not received it yet.

Pros: By far, the worst experience I have ever had renting a car. Staff were unwilling to helpe find a solution to leave with a rental car. I ended up paying for a rent I couldn't even use.

Cons: Staff were horrible. Coordination between Discovery Cars and Magic Cars was terrible. The rental ended up failing and I lost $100... Because Magic cars wouldn't let my place a deposit with the car I used to book the rental. Terrible. Just terrible.

Cons: Magical Islands provided a very bad service: when I returned the car, they went to the maximum detail when checking the car and charged me for damages that are related to normal usage (which weren't even checked when I picked up the car). Besides that, the staff was not polite and not professional.

Smart For Four
October 28, 2020

Pros: Nothing. They provided a filthy car and refused to take any responsibility for it. The importance of cleanliness during the pandemic seems to have passed them by. They are the most unprofessional car company I’ve ever dealt with.

Cons: Dirty car and charged me an extortionate amount for a tiny scratch on the wheel. I asked to show me the price list and they couldn’t. They are a scam.
