“No fuss rentals”

Written on: 22/07/2014

The car rentals site was super quick, brought up several different car hire companies to choose from, all at very competitive rates. Loved the fact i the site had an easy to read layout and all the details were clear to understand. Contact numbers are easy to find too. I would definitely recommend this site to all… Read Full Review

“Easy peasy”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Rory419 (1 review written)

Tried two other different rentals, national uk and europcar before having success with 121. National uk return ridiculous pricing, order of 900, justified in the banner as it was a busy weekend. Eurocar wouldn't let me purchase because I didn't have a promotion code eh! I just want to give someone some reasonable amount of money for 3 days hire. 121 understood this...well done, a keep it simple web site that works. No need to click an options button for no excess insurance and very reasonable… Read Full Review

“Bordeaux car hire”

Written on: 16/07/2014

I liked carrentals.co.uk because it allowed me to be quite specific about the model of car being hired. Although the group initially came up as Volkswagen Golf I was then offered a Citroen Berlingo at no extra cost - this is the car I was trying to get to. Often these sites can only point you to 'Compact car' and you don't know what you are going to get… Read Full Review

“Re question about insurance”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by Portstephens (2 reviews written)

Have been asked (as a reviewer) if the collision waiver insurance is necessary & what did I do. Yes it is necessary especially in foreign countries where they may not see things like we do, or different rules apply. Because I use a Mastercard - Platinum level to book my cars , hotels, trips etc whilst overseas , that card gives me coverage for collision waver damage, think it covers $3000 to $4000 , but is clear on the Mastercard Platinum website. Never had any need to call on it but it is… Read Full Review

“Quick, Easy, Functional”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by richardpettit (1 review written)

The website was easy to use and provided a clear breakdown of prices, except the excess coverage which was an additional 20%. I liked the way the website flows through the relevant information and each of the decisions are clearly explained. I don't like the fact it claims no hidden fees, but steers you towards the excess insurance at the last minute… Read Full Review

“Misleading website”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Peter572014 (1 review written)

I mistakenly decided to use the Carrentals.com website instead of going directly to Hertz to book a car at Edinburgh Airport. Have completed the search and being offered a £29 deal I then noticed they had added their own insurance to the deal taking the total over £53. It was informed I could cancel this additional £24 if I found the car hire cover better. Due to a change of plan I decided to cancel my reservation within their 48 window using the on-line cancellation feature. The small… Read Full Review

Carrentals01's Response to Peter572014's Review

Written on: 07/07/2014

Hi there.

We are very sorry for the confusion while making your booking.

Firstly, please check that you booked through us Carrentals.co.uk and not Carrentals.com as they are a separate company.

The insurance we offer at the time of booking is through a third party, Questor, and so the supplier would not have been able to cancel this for you.

The Questor Insurance product is offered in two places during the booking process so if I could just take a minute to explain how our site works, this may help explain to you how you purchased by mistake.

First of all, the insurance is offered on the booking form where customers are required to tick a box to agree to the insurance terms and conditions. If customers do not wish to include the insurance with their booking, they need to select this option and continue their booking without the insurance. The booking will not go through unless one of these two actions is taken.

If a customer does not select insurance on the booking form, we present an overlay page to customers after they have clicked "book now". The overlay page double checks that the customer did not want insurance and the reason for this is because it is a very important part of car hire and we want to be sure that people are aware of what they have said no to.

Again, the option to include this insurance is not pre-selected and the customer must tick a box to select this product and agree to the T&Cs of the insurance. If a customer does not want to include the insurance, they can click the large box which says "continue without Insurance".

At no point do we try to sell this product without a customer’s knowledge. It is not in our interest or that of Questor's to take money without customers knowing exactly what they are paying for. Please rest assured our aim is to provide good value car hire and good customer service.

I do hope that this clarifies the situation for you. You can cancel this insurance directly with Questor by using the contact details found in the insurance confirmation email you should have received after booking. If you cannot find Questors contact details or have any other queries, you can contact our customer support team who will pass your cancellation request onto Questor for you.

Kind regards

Written on: 05/06/2014 by Wyatt435 (1 review written)

Good site to find and search vehicles but when the booking process breaks down and you get charged more money they do not want to know. I contacted them and explained my dilemma and they declined to refund their error and I book cars with them in the US for 6 months each year. Using Ebookers now. Enough Said… Read Full Review

Carrentals01's Comment

Written on: 09/06/2014

Hi,

Thank you for your review.

We're very sorry to hear you are not happy with the service you have received.

As we are mainly a comparison site, we do not supply any car hire ourselves so the issue may have been with one of the suppliers we work with.

However, if you booked through our booking engine (powered by the broker Holiday Autos) and would like us to look in to this again, please contact us.

Kind regards,

Carrentals.co.uk
