“Fuel policy”

The main reason I choose Economy Car Hire is because of the fuel policy- only pay for the fuel you use… Read Full Review

“I Book With Confidence”

Written on: 30/09/2014 by merlinonline (1 review written)

Firstly, In the past I've been ripped off with unfair fuel policies, like the time I spent a few days over Christmas in Spain and had to purchase a full tank with no refund when I handed the car back with 3/4 remaining. With Economy I know that I will always only pay for what I use. Secondy, for a small extra fee I can have, and always take, insurance cover for all the circumstances that even a full Crash Damage Waiver insurance doesn't cover, like damaged tyres and underbody (easily done in… Read Full Review

“Car hire at Faro, Portugal”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by McDougallsa352 (1 review written)

As our flight to Faro was delayed by 30 minutes and it was already a late flight scheduled to land at 11.25pm I was concerned that after passport and baggage control etc by the time I got to the car hire collection point within the airport parking area the staff would not be there. Thankfully the staff of Travelrent were waiting and extremely obliging. The handover was quick a few scratches on the car which had already been noted and we were on our way. We left with a full tank and returned it… Read Full Review

“Excellent value rental service”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by vzBarrett356 (1 review written)

Rented a car at Faro airport through Economy Car Hire and chose Luzcar. Pick up and drop off were very straight forward and they even fitted the free child seat for me. The car was scratched on the outside so I took photos but as full insurance was included I was not over-worried. The interior was very clean and we had no problems at all. Would recommend this company… Read Full Review

“Fantastic, cheap, worry free care hire!”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by Halford48 (1 review written)

Excellent price and service from both the UK and Lagorent in Portugal. I extended the hire for another week without any problem. The car was ideal. After being warned of massive extra charges when hiring a car in Portugal I was very wary. Economy Car Hire is exactly what it says, cheap, honest and fair, I could not have asked for more, and will certainly use them every time from now on. The only down side was the 20€ out of hours feeI had to pay as I left the car at 04 .00 Thank you for a… Read Full Review

“The one stop start place”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by Downey321 (1 review written)

This was the third year that I booked through ECH. Everything was as I expected with no hidden surprises at the holiday destination. The option of choosing insurance cover for excess was new and very useful, as \I believe when you take this insurance at the destination, then it may be more expensive. Also, I liked the feature of the hire car location (airport or off-site. If you arrive at a good time of day, then you can opt for the most suitable choice. I will book again and again through… Read Full Review

“excellent car rental”

Written on: 27/09/2014

we rented this car through Economy at the air port in Malaga, it was just wonderful. landed in Malaga, met by a representative, just walked 2 minutes to the bus to take us to the car rental. No problem when picking up the car, just had to wait about 20 minutes in line, no pressure on taking any extra insurance (which I had done anyway), given the keys, and off we went. Also same with dropping off the car after two weeks, wonderful service, dropped off car and keys, and taken back to airport… Read Full Review

“Nice car, great service”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by RonfromNotts (1 review written)

I booked a car through Economy Car Hire with Green Motion from Schipol Airport in Amsterdam. Important factors were the comprehensive insurance cover (I did not feel that I had to pay for further insurance when picking up the car) and the free second driver (so I could share the driving). Picking up yhe car involved getting a courtesy bus to the Ibis Hotel but this was easily done. We were able to get some lunch at the Ibis. The Green Motion staff were helpful and efficient. The car (a Toyota)… Read Full Review

Economy Car Hire's Response to bonnett's Review

Written on: 29/09/2014

Thank you for your comments and apologies for any inconvenience that the above situation has caused you.

All of our prices include car hire with full collision damage waiver and theft waiver, with either no insurance excess or excess reimbursement insurance included. All of the car hire suppliers that we work with require a security deposit to be authorised upon collection of the vehicle. This covers damage to un-insured parts of the vehicle, fuel charges if applicable, and in the unlikely event that a claim is made when the insurance has been invalidated. This information can be found on the quote results pages, as well as step 1 and 2 of the booking process, as well as on your pre-paid car hire voucher.

We do also allow customers to purchase optional top-up insurance which covers damage to the tyres, glass parts and underside of the vehicle. This is a reimbursement policy, meaning you must pay the supplier for the damage, then submit a claim when you return home. Many car hire suppliers also offer similar insurances locally, however you are under no obligation to purchase this.

We can only apologise about the issues with the vehicle with which you were provided. Unfortunately, we cannot resolve issues such as these retrospectively. We would request that as soon as problems such as this occur on the rental, that you tell the car hire supplier and request a replacement vehicle. Should they fail to assist, then please call us and we will endeavour to resolve the situation for you at the time.

Once again, we would like to apologise and do hope that despite your disappointment on this occasion that you will book with us in the future.

“2nd time of booking - not the last”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by Alexandria292 (1 review written)

Very efficient service. Helpful and friendly. Pick-up and return of the vehicle took a minimum of time. No pressure to try and sell extra insurance etc; Will definately use again as you see the whole price before you pay and all excess and damage is covered. Free additional driver is great and although not needed this time it's reassuring to have… Read Full Review

“Great car hire experience -relief!”

Written on: 24/09/2014 by bwleigh (2 reviews written)

Having had poor car hire experiences with other companies in the past and reading poor reviews of many companies I am nervous of hiring cars but this experience was a pleasant relief. We booked through Economy Car hire and having used them before you can see the name of the car hire companies they use in the online quote. Having researched the companies thoroughly I opted for Drive4Fun as they had received good reviews. Our flight to Faro with Easyjet was delayed 2 1/2 hours so I phoned… Read Full Review

“full tank of petrol ”

Written on: 13/09/2014 by Elizabeth41 (1 review written)

I do feel it would be better to only put half tank of petrol in the car the weather for us was so good we only used half a tank and therefore left a good half left in tank having paid for a full tank this does seem rather excessive. I realise you need to make a profit but I do feel a little aggrieved to say the least. However apart from this it was an excellent service… Read Full Review

“Great no-fuss service”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by Pennington109 (1 review written)

I needed to rent a vacation car on Madeira and read some horror stories about low price operator scams with fuel and fake accident claims. I wanted a no-fuss service and knew that by booking with Economy that I'd get the weight of their purchasing power behind me. The deal with Rodavante was good and no-nonsense. I was upgraded to a Corsa and the rental was executed with great efficiency and no messing. Cars on Madeira have a hard life with knocks and scuffs common so I didn't mind that the car… Read Full Review

“Very Professional service from Economy Car Hire ”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by vkColeman277 (1 review written)

It was so easy to book and change booking (if necessary) via Economy Car Hire web site or via phone call. The guy I spoke to was very professional and helpful. Initially I booked our rental car from Car Supplier: Rent Car 4 Less. But then changed my mind and selected Car Supplier: Luz car rental. Luz car rental is a very good and all inclusive company and recommended by almost all Trip advisor members. Economy Car Hire made the necessary change without any fuss. Recommend: YES… Read Full Review

“Good Service”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Flynn237 (1 review written)

I was anxious about hiring a car. The competitve price and the free additional driver sealed the deal for me. Paying for a full tank of fuel knowing we would not use it all, wasnt something we particluarly wanted to do. We hired the car in Ibiza, the shuttle bus service was good and quick. We were served quickly at the check in desk, on returning the car we received the same service. I would use this cmpnay again… Read Full Review

“Excellent car hire experience at Turkey's Dalaman airport!”

Written on: 08/09/2014 by Edward4 (1 review written)

We were met at airport arrivals by the friendly agent holding an ID card with my name. We were then taken to the nearby airport car park and given the keys to a spacious Fiat sedan. No choice of vehicles obviously but we were happy with the roominess of the car. At the end of our trip the agent also met us on the airport departure ramp (at 1:45am!!). After a quick check over the car after unloading our bags, we handed over the keys and he drove off the car. Altogether a brilliant car hire… Read Full Review
