“Absolute disgrace! AVOID!”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by tux130582 (2 reviews written)

Hello I booked a car hire months ago for portugal through affordable car hire. Today I receive an email, saying that due to a "technical error" in the pricing and availability the booking has been cancelled. Whilst I understand this could happen after a day or two after the booking to cancel after such a long period is very annoying and unprofessional. I wasnt offered any alternative transport or a proper explanation as to why this had happened. In the meantime the price of car hire has… Read Full Review

“Waste of money”

Written on: 28/12/2013 by brandane (1 review written)

Looks OK at first, till you agree the rental then the hidden terms appear. They have a hidden £250 deposit charge, which "can take up to 14 days to refund" and state that the contract will not even be with them, but another car hire company they will advise you of later. I rang to cancel, to the number they gave me to use when I arrived (you have to phone them on arrival, only then will they tell you where to find the car) and there was no reply. So...what if I had arrived and they didn't… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Book with trust and confidence as a logo? Shame then that we got charged extra for basic insurance supposidly included in the deal.

“Great Service!”

Written on: 11/09/2013

Plain sailing using Affordable Car Hire. With everything sorted before we left the UK we had confidence when landing in Spain that we would have no problem and we were right. From the time we picked the car up to when we dropped it off we felt happy with the staff and the efficiency that we witnessed. Great Service!… Read Full Review

“Friendly and efficient service”

Written on: 17/07/2013

I use Affordable every time i come back to the UK to visit family and friends. I can always find a great price online and can pick up directly from the airport. This time around i flew into Edinburgh airport and booked a small corsa. When i arrived at the check in desk the customer service advisor/sales rep advised that they needed to upgrade my booking. I was given an Astra with only delivery miles on the clock. Easy to use service with no hassle. I would definately recommend… Read Full Review

“Hidden charges - avoid”

Written on: 01/05/2013 by TSpiel (1 review written)

I used Affordable Car Rental to book a car with Sixt in Israel in April 2013 - when I arrived, I had to wait 1.5 hours to collect car, had to put up with incredibly rude staff (using foul language to complain about their boss), got a car with 75,000k on the clock, and to top it all off was charged an additional 27UDS airport charge even though on the voucher it clearly stated that it was ALL INCLUSIVE. On complaining about this charge and the generally appalling service, I was told that the… Read Full Review

“Assistance abroad”

Written on: 19/06/2012 by clairetrevis (1 review written)

I booked car hire in Palma, Majorca through Affordable Car rental who used Sixt. When I made the reservation, a helpful sales agent confirmed a convertible (VW Golf) for 4 adults and luggage and also persuaded me to take their top -up insurance which I was assured would be accepted by Sixt. The paperwork, including the Insurance certificate was all emailed to me and I printed it out to take with me. When I arrived in Palma, the Sixt desk was extremely busy with 3 agents on duty. I queued for… Read Full Review
