“good car renting company”

Written on: 23/09/2016 by GiancarloCoyne (1 review written)

That was our first experience with amoita. And it was a good one. We arrived to the Faro airport very late, a man from Amoita (shame, I forgot his name) came to the Faro airport meeting point and together we went to Amoita car parking place. It was not far away, about 10 minutes walk from the airport. He filled all the documents, mark all the scratches on the car and did his job very quickly. We were a bit late so need to pay additional 20euros, which was fine. And he didn’t insist us to buy… Read Full Review

have used Amoita for many years now & mainly because of the exceptional service we have always received.

“Absolutely excellent car hire experience”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by BobNorm (1 review written)

Hired from Amoita July/August 2016, excellent in every way. Brand new vehicle, booked smallest car size but was given next size up at no extra cost. Very helpful and friendly service at Lisbon airport, no pressure to pay for extras. Thoroughly recommended and would use this company again without a doubt. A great relief to find people who take great pride in honesty and excellent customer care, in a market where many people experience the opposite… Read Full Review

“Nice car rental company in Lisbon airport”

Written on: 19/02/2016 by mrmatrixmusic (1 review written)

I rented a car last January with Amoita and was very pleased with the warm attitude of the staff. Very helpful people. The car was a recent Ibiza in nice conditions, clean and safe. They didn't try to push me to buy extra insurance which was surprising to me. Returned the vehicle one week later and it was as fast as picking it up. All so simple and friendly. The motorway tolls was a bit confusing with two different systems, but only paid what I used. Highly recommended!… Read Full Review

“Wrong car chosen on the internet - Amoita doesn`t refund!”

Written on: 07/12/2015 by alexrentingacar (1 review written)

In octobre 2015,I made a online booking with Amoita for 995 Euro for two weeks. I thought I had booked a station wagon and was therefore ready to pay such a high price. When we arrived in Lissabon, an assistant welcomed us and made us (fully packed with boards) walk around 10 minutes to a fuel station. there she showed us the car which has been reserved for us. It was no station wagon and there was no way to get our boards in the car. we asked for another bigger model, which was not available… Read Full Review

Amoita's Response to alexrentingacar's Review

Written on: 19/02/2016

Client booked a type of vehicle online and received a confirmation with examples of vehicles and specifications. Note Amoita did not select the vehicle. The Client choose from a wide selection available.
Upon delivery Client asked for a larger vehicle which he could have booked online weeks before, but unfortunately and at last minute on peak summer was not available. The Client threatened with bad reviews on the Internet.
Client refused to collect the booked vehicle. This car was left standing, and if it was not booked by this customer if could have been rented to someone else.
Client filled a complaint to his credit card Company and even them didn't entitled him for a refund.

“Beware the "Refundable" Toll Deposit”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by 1969Lake (1 review written)

Booked a car for a week through Economy Car Hire brokers. Had a problem trying to locate them and Car Park 4 at Faro Airport. Eventually found the car park, but their "office" was a van parked on the far side with a couple of cars. The car was a rather old Citroen C2 rather than the Seat Mii we were expecting, but it drove very well despite being in the usual battered state. Had to leave 20 EUR Credit Card deposit on the Toll Transponder, which was supposed to be refundable within 48 hours of… Read Full Review

Amoita's Comment

Written on: 05/01/2015

The valuable Customer,

Unfortunately the tolls system (which Amoita reproves but is forced to use by the Portuguese Government) is far from perfect.
The details from tolls passages are not live real time and have a delay of 48 hours. The fact is most of the time the details are only live after 7 days, and that's why we changed already long time ago the information on the terms & conditions sent to all Customers. If you have booked long ago, probably you have not updated information, specially if you booked through an Internet Car Hire Broker (which you did). We trust you must have already received your 20€ deposit, if you have not used the Tolls after all, something we cannot confirm with an anonymous post. We would appreciate you to contact us direct to be able to provide immediate assistance.
Regarding the vehicle model, please note most of the Internet Car Rental Brokers mention a make and model, but as an example, just for Customers to have an idea of the size and type of vehicle. Similar or higher class may be provided. Note an specific make/model/color is never guaranteed as it's virtually impossible. No company blocks an specific vehicle for a booking taking place 6 months from now. Even for tomorrow, many things can happen. Rental extensions, return delays, maintenance to do, sales, etc. To may variables to guarantee a vehicle. Just the same with hotel rooms.
Hope to be able to serve you in a near future and prove why we are Customers preferable choice.

Yes I have had the deposit refunded but it took a lot of chasing and only came after I posted the review and that was three and a half weeks after the car was returned. Regarding the specific car offered I have no argument with that however your own website states that the fleet is renewed every year and all the cars are new. The Citroen C2 has not been manufactured since 2009 and the car provided was I think 2008 thus not anywhere near new but at least 6 years old!
