“Quick and efficient service and the type of car I wanted”

Written on: 02/05/2016 by Spencerm242 (1 review written)

Bournemouth car hire is more convenient than many UK large airports as it is very conveniently located near terminal. So it is easy to collect car and be on the way quickly as proved to be the case. The rental was expected so also speedy and because I like to drive a small car was very happy to be allocated a nearly new Twingo. All good… Read Full Review

Car wasn't available when we arrived & we were told we would need to wait 4-5 hrs for car. (Not what you want to hear after 20+ hrs travelling. ) They offered to take us to city hotel but we were going very 2.5 hrs south to my sister. Gave us a free upgrade& car was fantastic… Read Full Review

“Great Car Hire”

Written on: 02/04/2016 by MarquesWaugh (1 review written)

Great Car Hire. Only problem was at the airport to collect, they wanted the Visa Card I used to charge a large deposit and another for the fuel. Unfortunately I have a Visa card contactless and could not remember the PIN! Tried to get a wifi signal on phone then had to wait for EE to give me a 3G signal… Read Full Review

“Alamp 3 day hire Las Vegas airport”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by pgHampton1984 (1 review written)

The Alamo desk was well staffed so I had a very short wait. By comparison the Dollar desk had a 1hr long queue. There was a choice of upgrade cars which was a nice surprise so I took my pick of a new Jeep model. Returning with the tank FULL was easy due to several nearby gas stations. On return they just read the fuel gauge and give you a receipt. You are meant to keep your own fuel receipt from a garage within 10 miles to prove you actually filled it up - that's if you are asked to prove it -… Read Full Review

“Good deal”

Written on: 05/01/2016 by Ray127 (1 review written)

Easy to use website and value for money. The car we got was clean and tidy and the walk to the pickup and drop-off points was just a few minutes. The service give over phone and at the pick up counter was good and customer friendly. No problems with the car during the rented period. I would use eCarz in the near-future again in case I needed a car again. plus point was that there were no hidden costs during booking and collecting the car. Keep up the good service and value for money. Keep up… Read Full Review

“Scruffy car but cheap”

Written on: 07/11/2015 by Oxter (2 reviews written)

First car given the cig. lighter socket was fused so our sat nav was no good. Discovered before leaving. Immediate exchange given. Bodywork was scruffy - a Europcar one but it drove ok for a 1 litre. Very little power as expected but economical. No hassle at all at desk. Quick check on return and signed off as full and undamaged. … Read Full Review

“Car hire in Scotland”

Written on: 13/09/2015

I collected my rental car from Thrifty at Inverness Airport. It was meet and greet so I was quickly transferred to the hire depot and quickly completed the paperwork. All was very efficient and staff were friendly. I chose the cheapest hire available and paid well in advance and was very pleased to be given a free upgrade. I would use this company again… Read Full Review

I love the way this service works, especially the way it found me proper car and let me make a reservation effortlessly. The service itself was very good and I would recommend it with no hesitation.

“super service”

Written on: 05/08/2015

A last minute booking -less than twelve hours before needing to pick up the car. We made a late night phone call to the 24 hr call centre to check if a car would be available as the booking email said they needed 72 hrs to confirm the booking. We were told to go to europcar on arrival at the airport. By the time we left Manchester, we had no idea if the car booking would have gone through. On arrival in Corsica we were able to log on to email using the free airport wifi and sure enough the… Read Full Review

Ecarz.co.uk567's Response to Pryor-peach's Review

Written on: 16/07/2015

Hi there

Thank you for your review of Ecarz.co.uk.

We are very sorry to hear you are not happy with the service you have received and we would like to apologise on behalf of the supplier for any inconvenience caused by the car not being available when you arrived at your pick up location. Unfortunately, when suppliers are not aware of circumstances and customers do not arrive on the flight number provided with their booking details, the rental car can be given to another customer as the booking is presumed to be a "no show". If you contacted us regarding the delays you experienced, it is likely that any emails did not get passed on quickly as being a broker, our customer support is not open 24/7. The best thing to do in this situation is to contact the supplier directly using the contact details on your rental voucher.

However, if you have already contacted us and we have confirmed your case is being looked in to, please rest assured we will do everything we can to help. The 20 days response guide-time is because the supplier will need to be contacted and we have to wait for a response while they look in to this for you.

If the suppliers decision is not to refund you for your rental booking, the only thing we can suggest is that you contact your Travel Insurance company or Credit Card company (if you paid for your car hire booking with a Credit Card) to find out if you are covered by them, though please note this will depend on the type of cover provided by your policy.

Once again, we are very sorry that your experience of Ecarz.co.uk is not positive and we hope this does not deter you from using us to find your future car hire.

Kind regards,

Ecarz.co.uk

“A curate's egg ( good in parts)”

Written on: 10/07/2015 by ypShepherd167 (1 review written)

Booking was a quick and easy affair and if you find no problems, they are as competitive as anyone. However, should you subsequently find a problem with your booking, their support strategy is to put you off in the hopes the problem will go away. A case of hanging the customer out to dry… Read Full Review

Well, it's now the 18th and no response ( again) to my reply to the above. It would appear that personnel in your organisation are not all on the same wavelength.

“Easy!”

Everything was easy from booking to collecting the car. Normal upsell from the provider once you get to the rental place (in my case Hertz), but no problems at all. Would definitely recommend using this site for your car hire needs… Read Full Review

“A great experience”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by markydavis (1 review written)

Used this for 8 days car hire in Italy and found that they offered the best spread of cars at the best prices using many of the known rental companies. It was all very clear what I was getting and what I wasn't and the voucher was issued to me by email with no problems. The actual car hire experience was the best I have had with collection and drop off being very easy not to mention the fact that they upgraded our car so we were more than satisfied… Read Full Review

“Does what it says on the tin”

Written on: 12/06/2015 by Kaia341 (1 review written)

Reasonably priced rental with no hassle on booking or collection. We had the usual annoyance of having to pay for an expensive full tank of petrol regardless of what we used with a fill up charge, but this was the policy of the hire company & eCarz voucher did warn us of this… Read Full Review

“Warning ”

Written on: 08/06/2015 by Moonpig123 (1 review written)

Maybe a cheap insurance company! HOWEVER!! Within less then 30 minutes of registering with the company, I had "have you a accident recently" company ringing,messaging and emailing, And every day since registering so it was clear that my contact details had been sold to multiple company's! Avoid giving the company any telephone details at all!!!… Read Full Review
