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. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.
Pros: Havde intet med surprice at gøre
Pros: Very cordial. Very efficient. Picked us up from the airport within 5 minutes of calling,
Cons: The van available was too high and not in line with what we booked. With that type of van, you cannot park in an underground parking. Also we had to be very careful in country roads because of trees.
Pros: Car we hired was not available but was clean and new.
Cons: Confusing and inefficient. We paid for a 7 seater but didn’t get discount. Car wasn’t there that we had paid for and ordered.
Pros: Like I mentioned above the information I was given about the office was incorrect, it was not at the airport and we had to wait a long time to be picked up from the airport which wasn't great but I do appreciate it was busy and you only had so many people to deal with rental but after traveling with three children and a elderly lady it wasn't great waiting a hour to be picked up to collect car and then it took around 1 hour 45 minutes after this to actually sign paperwork and get the car
Cons: Information about the office being at airport was wrong Needed more people working so pick up would be faster
Pros: The people working in the bureau
Pros: They were helpful and made the process smooth and easy. It seems like a small company that provides personal care.
Cons: You have to call them to get a shuttle from the airport, but all of the pay phoned there are broken. There was no way of getting in touch with them so I had to walk 2 miles to the depot with my bags
Pros: Low price but very unsure and risky…
Cons: CAR dirty. Not possible to check on damage. Discussions about insurance. Heigh deposit.
Cons: poor communication with customer Wrong information about pick-up location Long wait for collection of vehicle Inefficient staff and under-resourced (not enough staff to deal with long queues of customers) Long collection process Antiquated paperwork system - lack of IT system Similar experience when returning car.. ie slow, lack of staff, long paperwork process, no technology, etc.
Pros: Good value for money
Cons: We wait a lot for picking the car
Pros: Good car
Cons: They were difficult at pick-up trying to solicit upgrades and very expensive insurance, even after I explained that I already had full cover. I had to phone DiscoverCars (Chris) to leave a note of protest, obviously at a cost, as they were saying that DiscoverCars will not reimburse me should I have an accident.
Pros: good price, efficiency of the lady at the desk, cool car for Sicily (Smart) which is easy to drive in the narrow streets and to park
Cons: Waiting time at the airport to be picked up, lack of information which car/who will pick me up (no Surprice but Go Parking), the driver didn't know neither who he has to pick up. Didn't ask for an automatic but had one, time to take some habits ! Indicated in the announce 'full tank' / 'full tank', it was not (2/8), not cool
Pros: Very pleasant to deal with, will definitely booked another car with them
Cons: No seating in the waiting area or outside. The van was not cleaned from previous rental...I think is bad service
Cons: It was very unclear that the car would be given away after 2 hours. Due to a delayed flight, we were left stranded in the airport and ended up spending 3 times the fee to get another car
Pros: The company accepted Amex for a hold, and the car was clean. Drop-off was also easy. The representative was friendly but clearly overworked as the sole person dealing with customers.
Cons: Extremely slow and tiring collection experience - took us several hours. The company misrepresented the cars it had available on the website - we had booked 2 Audi A3s (or similar) and received a Fiat 500x & VW Golf (both had been priced at a cheaper rate online, but we did not receive any refund for the difference - the rep claimed they were 'similar cars'). The car was in terrible condition - the right wing mirror was severely damaged (which is dangerous on Italy's narrow roads).
Pros: Very fast service, friendly, no long waiting times for shuttle, good new car, easy to find
Pros: kindness and problem solving capacities of the staff
Cons: the initial difficulties in getting the car, notwithstanding the regular confirmation of the reservation by DiscoverCars.
Cons: Bad management, bad customer service, location further away from airport...
Cons: Disorganized. Did not have the car ordered. Got one with the service warning permanent on!! Was told “10 minutes” to get car. But was one hour!!
Pros: The car was cancelled!! I was left stranded with my family
Cons: Our flight was rescheduled to an early morning (6:30 AM). We drove through the night from another city to leave the car at the agency before the flight , but there was no transfer from the agency to the terminal building (about 2.5 km away) although it was advertised that it's working 24/7 so we had to get a taxy.
Pros: It was not good
Cons: Nothing it was not good, we did not get the car and the service was poor. Where is our refund? Also the hotline was not available
Pros: Good car efficient pickup
Cons: Finding the the shuttle was very diffucult . ended taking a taxi
Cons: They have no system whatsoever to keep track of the cars. They answer the phone while talking to you and leave you waiting. The cars were marked with strange numbers on the windshield and have a huge autoone logo as publicity. The place in the airport where the shuttle is supposed to pick you up is not marked. I waited 30mins and other people waited an hour. Never again!
