“Dubious business practice - almost looks fraud”

Written on: 07/11/2013 by arian_sk (1 review written)

I booked using economy bookings and when I booked a car, it clearly told that I need not pay anything at the time of pickup. It again sent a confirmation mail which said the same thing - nothing to pay at pickup of the car. And then when I went to pick up the car, I had to pay 40% more as taxes at pick up. I called up the customer service and they said that in the coupon voucher in a small section at the corner, it is written that you may have to pay taxes at pickup. Dhhh... it looks like… Read Full Review

“Better than expected”

Written on: 29/10/2013 by SUSAN.S (1 review written)

I found out about economybookings surfing the web. I have rented cars via rental suppliers directly before that but this time I wanted to try my luck with an online broker – and chose economybookings because they seemed to provide better rates than similar websites. Before making a reservation I tried to find out how trustworthy they are by reading reviews online. Despite quite a few users gave a negative response to their services there were pretty much positive reviews as well. Most of… Read Full Review

“Great value for money”

Written on: 21/10/2013 by Charles.Tr (2 reviews written)

Before going on holiday to Florence, Italy this summer we were searching a car for a rental and compared rates on various websites. economybookings.com was the one that provided the best deals of all. So we made a booking there and had no regrets afterwards. We were into luck with the welcoming and friendly staff of their partner Avis at the Florence Airport, that provided us Citroen C4 Picasso – nice fuel-efficient vehicle, capacious enough for three people. Booking process on the website… Read Full Review

“Satisfying rental”

Written on: 19/10/2013 by Kolyada (3 reviews written)

Used economybookings.com for a car rental several times and I don't doubt that will definitely book with them again. Their range of cars and value for money are exceptional. Most of my rental were at Faro Airport, Portugal, with Avis and I've never had issues with them. On my last rental I got a new car clean inside, even better than I expected. Besides, I've even have not been imposed for the extra charge for returning the car 2 hours later than I supposed to. No complaints whatsoever. … Read Full Review

“Left me hanging”

Written on: 15/10/2013 by jbyrne24 (1 review written)

I booked a vehicle through Economy Bookings. I checked the "Total Rental Price" and confirmed the booking and paid by credit card. When I arrived at the car rental agency to pick up the car I was informed by the rental service that I owed and additional $130 in fees and taxes. That was not expected nor was I explicitly informed that this was the case. I contacted these guys by phone and email to inform them and to ask for a refund. I have received numerous emails requesting information and… Read Full Review

Please provide your reservation number. We will find all previous correspondence and find some solution.

Kind refards,

“Check the car before you drive away!”

Written on: 14/10/2013

We rented a car that clearly said on the agreement that it would seat 5 people. It was small but that was ok. The 2 of us jumped in the car and headed to our destination, an hour away. When we picked up our 3 friends there, we realized that the car only had 4 seat belts. The fifth person had to sit on a cupholder in the back with no seat belt. When we returned the car we told the person who checked our car in. She said 'that's too bad'. Then when we told the person who issued our receipt, he… Read Full Review

“correct car not provided”

Written on: 14/10/2013

In mid-July we booked a convertible car for our 1 week vacation starting in late August. This was a big deal for us: a driving vacation in a beautiful part of the world. At Seattle airport Fox Rental Car couldn't tell us when they would have a convertible available. In order to get to our ferry boat and island hotel that night we had to leave -- after waiting an hour at the car facility. We never did get our convertible. WE DID pay for it. We reported this to you via email during the trip. We… Read Full Review

“SCAM SCAM”

Written on: 12/10/2013 by Jshels (1 review written)

Here it is. You go on any search engine and they quote you the cost of the rental.IF there are other charges,they tell the consumer IMMEDIATELY before the booking. Now let's compare these guys. They show you the cost of the rental. The also include in large letters that upon picking up the vehicle, 0 dollars are needed.HOWEVER, when you pick up the car, in the small print it says that taxes and other charges are extra. My sense is that we are so comfortable in dealing with the other types of… Read Full Review

“Did NOT DELIVER a car!! NO REFUND!!”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by Neverbookagain (1 review written)

Arrived in Gatwick and try to find the car. Did not. Asked at Sixt where to find the renal car if they know. The had got my booking transferred to them by the company easycar. Easycar has cancelled the rental without informing me or refuded my money. Sixt arranged a car for me in a moment which I of course had to pay since Economybookings had not transferred the rental cost to them. The staff at Sixt gave me an exellent service Thanks. They informed me later when I returned the car that there… Read Full Review

Hi,

Thank You for your feedback.
We apologising for inconvenience You have had. Booking Group provide booking services honestly. In your case, some problems accured in car rental company at the pick up location. We would like to inform, that your case was sold and car rental company have made you the refund on your provided bank account.

Please, see below the reply from car rental company Easirent:

Looking into this case I can confirm that unfortunately we did have an issue with availability and was unable to provide the client with their pre-booked vehicle. However as a gesture of good will we had searched across the car hire market for the best possible price for an alternative rental for the client.

We had booked them with Sixt at the basic rental cost of and therefore the client is due back the difference between the two basic rental costs, please see my calculations below:

Easirent > Pre-booked > MDMV/A group @ £55.44 for the 4 days.

Alternative supplier’s basic rental cost: £82.96

Therefore the difference equates too: £27.52

“Nice service and great price in Faro”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by Michaele.P (2 reviews written)

Fast and cost-efficient online booking service from economybookings.com. Supplier in Faro, Portugal (Europcar) did great as well, friendly staff was very helpful. The car, Nissan Qashqai, was well-serviced, clean and had an excellent condition. Europcar booth is located just within the perimeters of the airport. For an extra tax the car may be delivered to any location outside Faro Airport. There was a large deposit taken from our credit card at once but it was returned in full in a few days… Read Full Review
