“Shocking experience never to be repeated”

Written on: 30/08/2017 by McWilliams476 (1 review written)

The car was great, the quoted price was good and competitive.
The woman who served me at Faro airport was horrendous. She was rude, rolling her eyes at me, refusing to serve me unless I bought additional insurance and paid 100's of additional euros unless I purchased fuel, paid taxes, additional insurance, prepaid tolls, extra cost for airport pick up and more. I am skilled at working with challenging people in high pressure situations and it took all my assertiveness, patience, reasoning, distraction, avoidance and energy for over 30 minutes to manage the process.

I will never use goldcar again and if you are reading this review and considering it then I very strongly suggest you avoid them like the plague. I have siad the same to all my friends and family and trust that if this is common practice or company policy that they will be shut down before they destroy peoples holidays.
