“Great car”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by Damarionq185 (1 review written)

Very slick company, pick up and driver excellent, really pleased with the car, great runner. One thing we were disappointed with was the additional cost of insurance that we were not expecting as we thought we had paid this but this was only fir minor issues such as scratched paintwork and not things like damaged wing mirrors and major collisions!! Although it wasn't a great amount, we weren't expecting it. The operator obviously had a script that was repeated to customers in front of us, none… Read Full Review

“Everything fine”

Written on: 24/08/2014

Everything went smoothly - the booking process, collecting the car and returning the car. The price was good. The car was relatively new and enjoyable to drive. Excellent to have additional driver included at no extra cost. The representative explained everything clearly when we picked up the car. Have used them before as the broker and will definitely use them again. Have had no problems with either of the rental companies that they sold us the car rental with… Read Full Review

“Excellent car hire”

We are sorry to learn of the difficulties which you encountered during your rental. We do not expect our customers to be provided with poor levels of service by the suppliers who we operate with. Please be assured your comments have been forwarded to management at Sixt to prevent situations such as this from occurring again in the future.

We do recommend that customers check their vehicle before driving away (Lights, indicators, all tyres including the spare wheel, etc.) and if you are not completely satisfied with any part of the vehicle, this is the time to say so and, if necessary, ask the supplier for a different vehicle.

In future, we would advise that you contact us at the time you encountered difficulties. We would have been able to liaise with the supplier and request that you were provided with assistance at the time, as well as requesting a replacement vehicle. Unfortunately it is always much harder for us to rectify a situation like this retrospectively. Without notification of the problems at the time we are not in a position whereby we are able to offer you our assistance.

Having approached Sixt on your behalf they have informed us that upon the vehicle’s return, the new tyre was damaged as there was a thorn in the tyre. However, the supplier has not passed the cost of the repair onto you.

I do hope that despite any disappointment caused on this occasion, Economy Car Hire can be of assistance to you again in the future.

“Good Company with Reliability”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by Postmark (1 review written)

I have used this company many times over the years when I go to Cyprus to make use of our holiday apartment there. I always shop around to get what I believe to be the most competitive quote for the most appropriate car. I rarely get another company to beat them for price. If there is one thing I think they could improve on though, would be to have the authority to pick up the client from nearer to the arrival entrance rather than having to push all your luggage to the far end of the car park… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service - Gerona airport”

Written on: 18/08/2014

I booked with economy car hire because I had originally booked with another company and was not happy with customer services and had no telephone contact so I cancelled. I liked that I had the choice of provider and also a free driver. Everything went very smoothly from start to finish and Solmar Car hire at Gerona airport were excellent. Will definitely use economy car hire in the future… Read Full Review

“Hire car for Almeria Spain”

Written on: 03/08/2014 by SDG333 (1 review written)

Excellent all round service, Simple to book online. Booked the car from ATESA. Great price £217 all in for a weeks car hire at the end of July 14. Quick and easy on arrival and departure at the airport. Brand new Ford C Max vehicle. No hard selling on picking up the car for extras , went for the pick up full return full on the fuel, which was a good call as a 3/4 refuel on the car on return was only €47 which is a lot cheaper then other companies charging over €100 for a full to empty… Read Full Review

“Best hire car experience in Spain”

Written on: 02/08/2014 by zeCrawford492 (1 review written)

Swift transfer from airport. Quick collection of car- no queues and good waiting facilities. Our vehicle was upgraded and as clear on the site there was no attempt to try and sell us additional insurance or charge for fuel- it was simply a full tank to start and this was how it needed to be returned. Staff were very friendly and interested in us being satisfied. When we returned the vehicle there were no issues and again we were dealt with quickly and taken back to the airport- would recommend… Read Full Review

“Poor customer service”

Written on: 01/08/2014 by djdazzy (1 review written)

After hiring a car through Economy Car Hire with Budget in May I am still unable to get a refund for 400 euro charges on my card over 8 weeks ago. I am currently stuck in limbo as I have full CDW plus excess insurance but because no one know what I have been charged for I cannot evoke the insurance or get a refund out of Budget. Very poor ! … Read Full Review

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I am very sorry to learn of your disappointment but would like to assure you we are doing everything possible to resolve this matter.

We have queried the charge with Budget who are currently investigating it, and we hope to reach an outcome as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

Yes, that was 4 weeks tomorrow so I don't really think this is a timely response.

“car hire”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by fi50 (1 review written)

Car was very clean and in excellent condition. I left a pair of glasses in the car and had a phone call from the rental company company letting me know. The very big negative is having to pay €120 upfront for the petrol and only using just over half a tank.No reimbursement. So they make a lot of money this way… Read Full Review

“Can't be beaten”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by pgChurchill192 (1 review written)

Don't venture abroad very often and fret a little about what to expect, but do like to get value for money. Very easy and straightforward booking procedure, works well for us to pay as we booked it. At the last moment husband realised that we needed a booster seat for 10 yo daughter so I emailed rental service immediately to arrange one - easiest thing in the world, response almost by return in English confirming availability and cost. A bit tricky to locate collection point at Faro airport… Read Full Review

“Worry-free holiday motoring”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by ukpixel (3 reviews written)

I've used Economy for a few years now (apart from one time when I made the dreadful mistake of using a firm that looked more economical-it wasn't!) the all-inclusive and top-up insurance offered is cheaper than others and allows you to go on holiday without worrying about what would happen in an emergency. The range of companies are some of the biggest holiday rental experts and their cars are usually of an almost new condition. The on line booking is very easy and is completed within… Read Full Review
