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: Quick and painless
Pros: it was fast
Cons: we didn't know where to leave the key
Cons: Staff did not remind me to picture the car and afterward there apparently a dent on the wheel which I need to pay for
Pros: extra special customer service
Cons: Maybe could have been something to indicate how to fill up with petrol, and how to wash soft top. A quick summary of driving in madeira would have been cool also.
Pros: No queue at checkout (big queue at other companies). Friendly staff. No pushy sales of extra insurance. Efficient. Really nice car (VW Golf auto). Would definitely use them again.
Cons: Was disappointed to find the car had a big scrape down side after paying so much. But car was almost new, used only twice and previous driver had returned it with damage, so not much they could do. Staff encouraged us to take photos of damage to reassure us we would have no issues.
Pros: Excellent car. Did not charge extra for dropping off car at 6 am before office was open. All very easy.
Pros: Friendly efficient staff
Pros: Good communication service
Pros: The highlights were the ease of pick up and drop off and the choice of cars when I went to pick mine up was good (although they did not have the model I chose at the time of renting). The car was in good condition and reasonably modern.
Cons: We ended up with a VW T-Cross with some sort of small three cylinder engine (1.2 litre at a guess) and it was under-powered for the hills around Madeira. It was also manual without any form of hill assist. I knew Madeira is very hilly and you have to be a reasonable driver to cope, so we survived, but with 4 people going up 25-30% inclines on narrow roads, I was often in first gear. You have to do a lot of hill starts, so an automatic with hill assist would have been useful.
Pros: No time wasting and quick service to point of drive off.
Pros: In Airport
Cons: They did not make clear how to exit the rental car compound by way of using a card at the barrier which was in the glove compartment and was also required to leave the car back. Additional charg for out of hours return when they just expect you to put the key in a box which costs them nothing
Pros: Speed of service, minimal fuss, clean and well equipped car.
Cons: The man at the desk offered us to pay cash to cover all excess fees in case of an accident, however he was aware we didn't need it as we already paid for comprehensive cover, so he was being cheeky. But I fully expected him to say that as they always try. He didn't have an issue when I said 'no'.
Pros: Best value out of all rental car offers and ease of picking up and dropping off.
Pros: Great service and easy to collect and return
Cons: Helpfulness of staff
Pros: Friendly and no hard sell of extra insurance
Cons: All good
Pros: Very friendly and easy to find.
Cons: The representative tried to persuade us to hire a larger car that would be easier to drive on the mountainous roads, but the declined. No issues driving the car we hired.
Pros: Excellent friendly staff. Great car.
Pros: Rychlé bezproblémové vyzvednutí i odevzdání vozu. Auto čisté v dobrém stavu. Doporučuji.
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff all spoke great English.
Cons: Not much. The £2,500 deposit only payable by credit card was a big problem. I had to get a credit card just for this car hire.
Pros: Friendly courteous staff. No long queue. Easy access to car
Cons: Wished we had a better knowledge of getting back to drop off- a sketch would have helped. Also didn't know about exit card in glove compartment after we collected car.

Pros: Car rental prices to high. Comper to other locations.

Pros: Good new car, clean and nice, easy quick drop off!

Pros: Courtious and professional.
Cons: Long queue and waiting time.
Pros: Friendly greeting and politeness from staff located inside the office at the Arrivals terminal. Economy class provided was better than expected. Drop off was quick. Car was very clean. Drop off was straightforward

Pros: Quick and efficient service, everything was ready when I arrived to pick up the car. The member of staff was helpful and explained everything in details.

Pros: Price and helpful staff
Cons: Could be better/ more prominent directions to Madeira cars
