“WASTE OF MONEY!!!”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Tilley118 (1 review written)

As with most of the other genuine reviews on here dont hire anything from these! The unit I recieved didnt work at all, should have checked before really but when I came to use it in Italy it would not turn on causing problems and delays. As mentioned on other reviews, they have not replied to any emails/messages left and there is no contact number..surprise surprise! Also return postage costs are the hirer's responsibility which is stated, but when that is taken into account, most other places… Read Full Review

“Do not bother”

Written on: 31/03/2014 by CaroleA49 (1 review written)

Unfortunately this equipment was of no use to us at all because the in car charger did not connect properly to the unit. Although the unit was switching on and we were able to programme in our destination, as soon as the unit was attached to the window screen the pull of gravity on the charger meant that the connection became faulty and the unit was not charging up whilst in use and was therefore switching off before we arrived at our destination. When I held the unit and had the charger cable… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 21/11/2013

I ordered a sat nav for hire which was guaranteed delivery before 1pm, on the day of the delivery it didn't show. I searched the website for a telephone number which I then realised they don't have! I decided to send an email and ask for an update as I needed the sat nav for the next day, no reply even after 24 hours which they state in their website. The sat nav turned up the next day, but it was too late. I've since sent 4 more emails and nothing. I posted the sat nav back with a letter of… Read Full Review

“no support at all”

Written on: 18/07/2013

I was initally impressed all was delivered on time etc. Howeer when i was in italy the sat nav stopped working and locked on the owner screen. I worte when on holiday and copied it to the return address i've also written to them through their contacts page (interesting that you cant call anyone) to ask for a refund as the sat nav didn't work. No response, no commuication they obviously don't care about customers - so my advice hire from someone else they don't deserve to be recommended… Read Full Review

“This is the first time I've hired a sat nav, so had a...”

Written on: 21/09/2011

This is the first time I've hired a sat nav, so had a few reservations as to how well the process would work and whether I'd receive the required sat nav. I have a sat nav covering Europe but needed to hire one for driving across the US. The cost of the hire was a lot cheaper than downloading the relevant maps for my own device and well worth the money. Finding and ordering the best product on the website was very easy, the site is very user friendly and booking the sat nav took just a few… Read Full Review

“Sat Nav hire”

Written on: 21/07/2011 by Justin67 (1 review written)

I'm normally a bit dubious of Sat Nav's being old school and preferring maps! I don't like the way people seem to be transfixed by the screen either, I've lost count how many times I've been cut up on my motorbike by a car driver as they veered across a lane whilst gawping at the screen. However, I swallowed my pride and hired one for a trip to Germany just for the convenience and peace of mind knowing if I went off course, or intentionally wanted to do something off route, I knew it would… Read Full Review

“Great value and wonderful customer service”

Written on: 18/07/2011

I highly recommend this service to everyone, especially for the people who will rent a car there. We reserved a Tom tom from USA (before visiting UK), when we found out the rental car company charges an outrageous price for an optional Sat Nav rental. 12 days rental fee from this company was cheaper than one day rental from the rental car company. Turned out it was a good call, they delivered the Sat Nav to our hotel in London on time, the device was new with the newest version of software… Read Full Review

From start to finish the whole process was simple & effective. The delivery/return service works well & having a Sat Nav when visiting the USA is essential. The TomTom XL USA we had was excellent. The price I paid was very good value for money.I would highly recommend this Company to my friends & family… Read Full Review

“Really good Service”

Written on: 29/06/2011 by caski3 (1 review written)

Loath to spend money on a Sat Nav we would only use once, I thought there maybe a hire service we could use. I Googled Sat Nav hire and found this company. We needed to struggle from Vancouver International airport to Chilliwack among miles for roadworks and diversions. Avis wanted to charge $19 a day which I felt we could purchase one at this rate. Cheap Sat Nav hire is anything but cheap. Should be called supreme Satnav hire. Service was brilliant the Tom Tom worked perfectly and got… Read Full Review

“GPS SatNav Review”

Written on: 27/06/2011 by m1sere (1 review written)

I was going to the UK for 3 weeks holidays and I wanted a good Sat Nav. I didn't want to pay around 70 quid ($110 Aus) for the relevant maps for my Tom Tom Go. The rental car companys wanted anywhere from 6 to 14 quid per day (capped at 140 pounds max). This company offered a cheap and reliable alternative for about $2 per day. I got a Tomtom Start unit, which was adequate, and had all the speed radar camera locations pre-loaded. There are thousands of these all over the UK waiting for you… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2011

Hi,

I work for cheapsatnavhire.co.uk and dealt with this customer on thsi particular issue. He had used our company continuously for several years due to the fact he was so happy with the service.

On this occasion he had gone to order a particular model sat nav which we had just decided to stop providing so had removed it from the one of the list of products on our website but it was still available as selectable from our list of products. In the short term we had increased the price to an extortionate price (all other sat navs were still at same low price) to make sure no one would order this model.

The customer got a quote for this model and saw how high it was and automatically assumed that we had increased the prices and decided to complain to us without even giving us chance to explain. As this review is dated the same date he complained to us I expect he wrote this review before we had even had chance to reply to him!

We did email him back and explain the situation but he had already made his mind up by then. Some people prefer to think the worst rather than assume there is a reason or it is a mistake.

Obviously innocent until proven guilty wasn't the case with this person.

Written on: 29/10/2009

I have hired a TomTom 1 unit from this company for 2 weeks holiday in France and Spain.
Booking was easy and efficient, delivery very quick.
But not only did the unit repeatedly send us the wrong way, it also lost its position more and more as the days went by , especially when we needed it most, which is when exiting motorways. The journey back from northern Spain to London saw us relying only on our maps as the unit never found its position for more than a few minutes at a time, although we… Read Full Review

I would have been very stressed on holiday without this sat nav from cheap sat nav hire. As I couldn't afford to purchase one right before my holiday this hire service was ideal; arrived on time, packaged well, good instructions for return, worked perfectly. Unbelievable value for money, great equipment and service. Very pleased! A great way of avoiding an expensive purchase if you only need it for a one off purpose. Also a great way of testing out an item before you buy it (I will be… Read Full Review

Even though the sat nav arrived on time when i used it in portugal it ran out of charge and the charger was not working. Therefore had to guess my way to my villa and not able to use on return journey.
When told Cheap Sat Nav Hire they stated that it was working perfectly and i must have a dodgy car lighter.This was not the case and it was a complete waste of money. Will use different company next time!… Read Full Review
