“Great service from Sado Rent Porto”

Written on: 15/11/2014 by EmilioKelleher478 (1 review written)

We booked our hire car with Sado Rent Porto in advance through our villa rental company at a very competitive price. They collected us at the airport and took us to their office to complete the paperwork and pick up the car. The car was just over a year old, in good condition and the same as described in the booking information, although they don't guarantee to be able to give you the exact car. We had to agree to an amount being 'blocked' on our credit card as the deposit - 1500 euros. This is… Read Full Review

“good price, no problems”

Written on: 04/11/2014 by agolovenko (1 review written)

I was really worried after reading all the reviews but I thought that mostly bad reviews usually get posted so here is my good one as a Karma payback. We rented a car on discovercarhire and the actual service provider was Sado rent. We got a fiat 500c for really good price in lisbon airport. I was met by their guy in arrival hall and was transferred to the office which is 5 minutes away. They gave me the car I was expecting in a good condition and checked very thoroughly for all the micro… Read Full Review

“Everything was perfect, as agreed upon”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by Ngarzon (1 review written)

Everything went well and smoothly. We booked through Atlas Choice and after booking, we saw the local supplier was Sado rent and did not have good reviews, so we were a bit worried. Not needed at all! The lady at the Sado rent office in Porto was super nice and friendly. The car was also very clean, no damage, exactly what we wanted, so everything perfect!!! The drop off in Lisbon went smoothly too. The person helping us was not as warm as her, but I think it was more a language issue. There… Read Full Review

“BEWARE - scrupulously check car before driving away”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by ManuelLindsey (1 review written)

Picked up a Fiat 500 from Sado Rent downtown Lisbon office. Friendly assistant who only made a cursory check of the car with me - I had to point out the few dints and chips which she recorded. Unfortunately I forgot to check the hubcaps. On returning the car to Lisbon Airport, the rep made the most thorough check of a rental car I've ever seen, including running her finger down the edge of each door. She noted a tiny scuff on the hubcap and immediately blamed me for causing this, pointing out… Read Full Review

“Sado Rent - If you read the small print, no surprises.”

Written on: 08/06/2014

Just got back from Portugal and after being uncertain about renting from them after bad reviews I went ahead and did so as they had the best price by far. I read the small print and was fully aware of their, admittedly, high deposit. I took out the Excess Cover Insurance for an extra £28.00 for the week just in case. We were over 30 mins late to meet the rep at the airport and he was still waiting for us and very accomodating. I was ready to throughly inspect the car for scratches and damage… Read Full Review

“The worst company in the world”

Written on: 25/09/2013 by Pothead098 (1 review written)

Guys heads up I just came back from Portugal and this car rental is so rubbish I know first they change you a 1900euros for a deposit which already shows signs trouble. When we came back to the rental shop to return the car they went straight for the back of the car put there hand under the bumper and claimed we caused damage. They wanted an unreasonable amount for a so called scratch the we cause. We refused to pay and canceled our visa immediately travellers beware this company … Read Full Review

“Poor location and communication, lower spec vehicle”

Written on: 09/08/2013 by bigshiney (1 review written)

The first problem was a wait at the airport, waiting for the rep to turn up and a general lack of communication as to his whereabouts. Although to be fair our flight was late by an hour so he must have returned to their office. The Sado Rent office is off site from Lisbon airport, about a 7 minute drive. The service was ok, my contact spoke excellent English and was efficient. We checked the car out for damage before leaving. All fine, any minor details were noted. After a couple of days I… Read Full Review

“worst car rental in Portugal - sorry to call them...”

Written on: 26/06/2013 by NPinto (2 reviews written)

we have booked a car classed as class A for what we thought was the best price on offer. What the website forgets to mention is the "additional costs" that are only mentioned when you receive the reservation. we were charged an extra 30€ for an "out of hours service" even considering that the rental service is based at an airport and they mention to be open on national holidays and weekends on their website. How can you then expect to choose the best price? When we get there, the car rental… Read Full Review

“SADO Rent - unprofessional business...”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by villepaul (1 review written)

I rented through atlaschoice.com and got a car from SADO rent. Car was great, but service was horrible. This is how it went: I'm waiting at Lisbon airport to get the car, the guy comes half an hour late. The guy is wearing dirty clothes and I'm worried already now.. Then totally unexpected he tells me I have to confirm a 2000e additional fee which is only gonna be reserved, not billed actually, in case there will be some damages for the car. I consider but agree to do that. Then he says there… Read Full Review

“Sado Rental and VIP Cars SCAM”

Written on: 01/10/2012

Sado Rental and VIP Cars: They are scamming tourists by not making us aware of the requirements upfront. I had booked a car well in advance with highest avalabel insurance. When I reach lisbon airport to pick up my car they suddenly ask for 3000 Eu blocked on the credit card against deductible. This amount was quite high. Hence we pressed for options. They informed us 22 Eu per day additional for Super CDW coverage. then the deductible would go down to 300 eu. But they still asked for 1500 Eu… Read Full Review

“Possible scam / fraud”

Written on: 10/05/2012

When we picked up the car from Lisbon Airport it was given the regular once-over, not finding any damages. When we returned it though, they went over it with a loupe, finding several minor 'damages', charging us an additional €150. With a flight waiting we had no time to argue this, no doubt something they counted on. … Read Full Review

“Bad experience with SADO RENT”

Written on: 16/04/2012 by soleil2012 (1 review written)

Sado Rent offers competitive prices and nice cars (Fiat 500 cabrio) and I am sure that people can have good expiences with SADORENT (Sado Carrental) In our case we regret our booking an can not recommend them for car rental in Portugal (Lisbon) - You have to wait until they bring the car to the airport (no counter at the airport) - Checking the car on the street with chaotic traffic, rain and depending on the time in the dark. - We received a standard car and not a convertable/cabrio as we… Read Full Review
