“Awful experience with Goldcar Valencia”

Written on: 08/10/2017 by Richgl1953 (1 review written)

Booked via Holiday Autos: Arrived at the Goldcar desk which had 2 guys working on it. The queues got bigger and bigger then one of the guys, stood up grabbed his jacket and walked off! It took an hour to get the car. I booked a Nissan Juke, and the said no you have an Opel Astra, when he showed me the paperwork the diagram of the car was covered in crosses indicating damage,I explained that I wasn’t happy he said that is the car you have. He then said he would need my credit card for a… Read Full Review

Dear Richgl1953,

Thanks for your comment.

Richgl1953's Response to Richgl1953's Review

Written on: 18/10/2017

Just as a follow up GoldCar have taken €250 for the damage I did not cause, plus €173 for the hire (which I had already prepaid in the uk) plus €38 for who knows what and haven’t given me my fuel refund. They don’t respond to the incident I have logged online, and after emailing customer service, I received an email that basically said I’m stuffed. So going to have to take it higher.

Written on: 04/10/2017 by Swifty18200000 (1 review written)

Hired a car from Gold Car via a U.K. based booking company. Palma airport. August 2017. Good points: Car was new & clean. Company is located within the airport terminal building. Bad points: Long wait / queue to pick up the car. I handed my voucher over to the desk clerk which clearly showed that I had paid for additional collision waver insurance already. (Paid approximately £10 extra for 4 days cover). The extra cover is a claim back system whereby if damage is caused during the… Read Full Review

Hello Swifty,

Thanks for your comment.

We're trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.
On the issue you described, you have to know that our policy contemplates the requirement to leave a deposit in order to pick the car and start using our services. However, we always offer additional cover (Super Relax Cover), because it already includes an excess and it exempts you of this requirement. If customers have third party coverage, they can request a refund from them in case of damages, but our additional coverage is always offered as an alternative to blocking a deposit on a credit card.

We understand that you booked a third party's coverage from home.

However, I'd like to explain you how our coverage policy works. We always make the customer choose from two different options: you can purchase our additional coverage or you can leave a deposit in which you'll be liable of any damage made to the car, as our agent explained you at the counter. However, as you did not ask expressly to block a deposit on your cc, we had no option but to charge you our additional coverage.

We are aware that third parties offer customers their own coverage, as in your case, but it should be explained that this coverage is only applied when a charge is debited from the deposit left by the customer to the rent-a-car company - this is how the third party's coverage policy works. As you didn’t leave deposit you’ll have to contact with your broker in order to ask them for a refund of this coverage you ended not using, because we're not aware of the conditions of the third party's coverage refund.

Please note that our additional coverage is a non-refundable service, as you did accept it and consumed it already, we cannot do any refunds now.

I hope this information helped you clear your concerns.

Kind regards.

“Escroquerie / don't understand gold car”

Written on: 02/10/2017 by sdRichards162 (1 review written)

I can only recommend to not use gold car. We had my boyfriend and I did twice. They delivered us the wrong car, for the same price, charge us more for an insurance we took already but they told us it wasn't good enough. The customer service is bad, you can just read their answers on the website, they just copy the 3same text to each customer. They pretend to be cheap, but they will ask you for more money at the end. Otherwise you don't get your car. Worst company ever. Never again. Just Google… Read Full Review

“Ripped off by Goldcar”

Written on: 30/09/2017 by mammothd (4 reviews written)

I rented a car from 6-16th sept 2017 at Nice Airport. I paid £1135deposit for damage to car and fuel. I returned the car with a full tank and no damage. When I returned the car I asked the agent to sign it was all ok but he refused, saying they didn’t do that. I was refunded only £1068. That is £77 less than I should have got. I’ve had no invoice or anything saying why they have short changed me. I am a lawyer. I will be reporting this to my credit card company in the morning… Read Full Review

Dear mammothd,

Thanks for your comment.

We're trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.

We believe that the amount you are missing should be related to any unnoticed extra cost by yourself or it could also be related to currency exchange rate fees. Please check that with your bank.

Also refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website, that’s our normal way to proceed on these cases, because our agents can’t support any e-mails at the moment. After that they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

“I regularly rent cars in Santander Spain and Goldcar...”

Written on: 27/09/2017 by FergusStone (1 review written)

I regularly rent cars in Santander Spain and Goldcar is the only company I have had issues with. I recently picked up a car from their office and when I checked it, found loads of unrecorded damage (this rang alarm bells immediately). I got this corrected and continued on my trip. I found out later that the insurance excess I had specifically stated I did not want, had been charged to my credit card in excess of 100 euros. Upon returning the car, i made sure to wait for the staff to check the… Read Full Review

Dear FergusStone,
Thanks for your comment.
We're trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.
On the issue you described, you have to take into consideration that provision number 6.2 of our General T&C establishes: “charge for 'special cleaning' for the costs incurred from an additional valeting service arising from the clearly inadequate state of the vehicle at the time of its return, with a maximum charge of €150.” This was stated on your contract as well. According to it, we expect our customers to valet the vehicle before returning if needed and if our agents couldn’t do anything about it on your case it may be needed.
Please refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website, that’s our normal way to proceed on these cases, because our agents can’t support any e-mails at the moment. After that they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

My experience in the Fiumicino (Rome) airport was: No matter what you booked and from which site you did it, if comes that is Goldcar the hire car company they will try to make extra charges for everything as well as an extra insurance.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your comment. We're always trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.

After reading your comment, we understand that you booked a third party's coverage.
Therefore, we'd like to explain you how our coverage policy works. We always make the customer choose from two different options: you can purchase our additional coverage or you can leave a deposit in which you'll be liable of any damage made to the car, as our agent explained you at the counter.

We are aware that third parties offer customers their own coverage, as in your case, but it should be explained that this coverage is only applied when a charge is debited from the deposit left by the customer to the rent-a-car company, this is how the third party's coverage policy works. This information must be given by your broker.

We always recommend our additional coverage to customers for their peace of mind because thanks to it, they will be fully protected in case of an accident and we won't be liable if any damage is made to the car.

On the issue you described, please let us explain that fuel policy is clearly indicated on our website.

In the first place, you can choose Flex Fuel system, with which you leave a deposit for a full fuel tank the day you pick the car up, and when you return it, the amount of used fuel will be charged by Goldcar and your deposit will be refunded. This rate has management costs due to several advantages attached to the own service, and they are specified on our website.

On the other hand, you also can choose Full Fuel system, with which you leave a deposit for full tank, receive the car full of fuel and you have to return the same way, with the full tank. If the fuel tank is not full, the amount of missing liters will be deducted from money you initially left as a deposit.

Please refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website. That way, they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

Dear customer,
We’re very surprised with your comment. Our staff is trained to offer an efficient, personalized, satisfactory and polite customer's attention. Furthermore, we have one of the youngest and most extensive fleets in Europe with over 50,000 vehicles which, on average, are less than one year old.

On the issue you described, please let us explain our clients have two options of coverage. Both appear clearly detailed during the booking process, in FAQ section of our website and in Terms and Conditions of the contract you accepted.

First of all, you can choose a basic rental. With this rate it is needed to leave a deposit that remains blocked in your credit card until the day you return the car. If, unfortunately, the car has any damage, amount of repair costs will be deducted from the excess fee initially blocked.

On the other hand you have Super Relax coverage, with which you don't have to worry about anything because all incidents may happen are covered.

We always recommend our clients to take out Super Relax cover for their own safe and tranquility on the road, but they're completely free to decide about it.

Please note that in order to pick up a car it is compulsory to block a deposit on a valid credit card. Our staff will always inspect the cars after each use and will mark the damages on the check-out sheet, however, we always ask customers to double check this since the cars can receive damage during their stay in the parking lot. This way both parties are aware of the damage that the car has on it before departing. On return, if our agents find damages that were not marked, they proceed to investigate and if it's considered that it occurred during this rental period, the customer will be charged for it.

Please refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website. That way, they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

The Goldcar Nice office have been appalling since I had an accident in one of their vehicles six weeks ago. As I decided not to take their extortionate insurance, I was made to pay a deposit of over £1000. Unpalatable, but so far standard practice. After the accident, I went through all proper channels, filled out the relevant paperwork and was assured everything was fine. They told me they would be in contact regarding a receipt for the repair costs of the vehicle, and would then refund the… Read Full Review

Do yourself a favour and book with anyone but this outfit. We booked a family estate online for what seemed like a decent price. After a thirty minute wait to get to the counter ("why is this taking so long?", we're thinking), we were curtly informed that family estates are one of the highest groups and that they are all diesels and that diesels have a €35 surcharge. "We didn't order a diesel", we protested. "Read the T & Cs", came the curt response. Next up was insurance - they gave us the… Read Full Review

Dear customer,
Thank you for your comment. We're always trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.
On the issue you described, please let us explain that initial prices on our website are for basic rentals. Then, our customers are free to add as many services as they need, with the consequent increase of the price. But it any case the decision of adding an extra depends only on them.
Also I would like to tell you our prices and conditions are clearly detailed during the booking process as well as in Terms in Conditions our clients accept.

We make daily arrival plannings but, unfortunately, there are mishaps out of our control, such as a delay of a flight for example.
Also we offer a personalized customer service, and for that reason some customers need more attention time than others.

Nevertheless, we’re happy to tell you we're working hard to open new branch offices to reduce waiting time of our customers and inconvenience due to it.

Also, we would like to explain you we have a Priority Check-in service you can add during the booking process. With this service you don't need to worry about queues, because there is an exclusive desk for it.

We offer customers a choice of petrol and diesel vehicles. There is, however, an extra charge for diesel, which reflects additional benefits as lower fuel consumption, lower fuel price and usually a more powerful engine. The cost of a Diesel vehicle is 4.00€/day.

Please let us explain our clients have two options of coverage. Both appear clearly detailed during the booking process, in FAQ section of our website and in Terms and Conditions of the contract you accepted.

First of all, you can choose a basic rental. With this rate it is needed to leave a deposit that remains blocked in your credit card until the day you return the car. If, unfortunately, the car has any damage, amount of repair costs will be deducted from the excess fee initially blocked.

Don't expect to get any of the €120 back for the fuel. I returned a full tank of fuel and they still charge you as if the vehicle was returned empty.

I cannot believe any reputable rental comparison sites still work with Goldcar. I rented through Rentalcars.com and will never use either company again.

I rented a car from Goldcar at Malaga Airport through Rentalcars.com. They gave us a car with a flat tyre and it had to be returned immediately. They swapped it for another and then proceeded to bombard me with texts all week asking me to return the first car! I spent days trying to resolve it. They charged €113 for a tank full of petrol and we returned the car full - so their full to full policy is rubbish. I tried several times to sort out the issue during our holiday to no avail.

“I was charged 150Euros for cleaning, only left sand...”

Written on: 13/09/2017

I was charged 150Euros for cleaning, only left sand and normal dirt from two weeks hire. I've never had such a scratched, beaten up car, so because they couldn't charge me for more damage, they charged for cleaning instead. Disgraceful. This is a despicable company. They repeated more than five times that I had to take their excess insurance despite getting my own, which they clearly didn't like. PLEASE avoid this company. it may start off cheap, but by the time you pay their extra costs, so… Read Full Review

Dear customer,

We’re very surprised with your comment. Our staff is trained to offer an efficient, personalized, satisfactory and polite customer's attention. Furthermore, we have one of the youngest and most extensive fleets in Europe with over 50,000 vehicles which, on average, are less than one year old.

On the issue you described, please note that vehicles are seldom returned to us in a spotless condition but we do expect them to be reasonably clean. Where additional cleaning is required an extra charge is incurred. This is in line with our Terms & Conditions.

Please refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website. That way, they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

“Car rental ripoff”

Written on: 08/09/2017

I booked a car for 1 month through DoYouSpain and was given Goldcar as the supplier. I have used the site before with no problems, but this time was different. When we arrived at the airport, we were made to queue for over an hour and then our troubles began. The man serving us was rude and very abrupt. He told us we had to pay 65 Euros for the car being filled with petrol and then began to try and sell us further insurance. I showed him my Allianz policy that covered me for car hire but he… Read Full Review

Dear customer,
Thank you for your comment. We're always trying to improve our services and your opinion is essential to do so.
On the issue you described, please let us explain that we make daily arrival plannings but, unfortunately, there are mishaps out of our control, such as a delay of a flight for example.
Also we offer a personalized customer service, and for that reason some customers need more attention time than others.

Nevertheless, we’re happy to tell you we're working hard to open new branch offices to reduce waiting time of our customers and inconvenience due to it.

Also, we would like to explain you we have a Priority Check-in service you can add during the booking process. With this service you don't need to worry about queues, because there is an exclusive desk for it.

Please let us explain our clients have two options of coverage. Both appear clearly detailed during the booking process, in FAQ section of our website and in Terms and Conditions of the contract you accepted.

First of all, you can choose a basic rental. With this rate it is needed to leave a deposit that remains blocked in your credit card until the day you return the car. If, unfortunately, the car has any damage, amount of repair costs will be deducted from the excess fee initially blocked.

On the other hand you have Super Relax coverage, with which you don't have to worry about anything because all incidents may happen are covered.

We always recommend our clients to take out Super Relax cover for their own safe and tranquility on the road, but they're completely free to decide about it.

Please let us explain that fuel policy is clearly indicated on our website.

In the first place, you can choose Flex Fuel system, with which you leave a deposit for a full fuel tank the day you pick the car up, and when you return it, the amount of used fuel will be charged by Goldcar and your deposit will be refunded. This rate has management costs due to several advantages attached to the own service.

On the other hand, you also can choose Full Fuel system, with which you leave a deposit for full tank, receive the car full of fuel and you have to return the same way, with the full tank. If the fuel tank is not full, the amount of missing liters will be deducted from money you initially left as a deposit.

Please refer your case to our Customer Service department by opening a query through our website. That way, they’ll get in touch with you and manage your case ASAP in order to clarify this matter.

Kind regards.

We always recommend our clients to take out Super Relax cover for their own safe and tranquility on the road, but they're completely free to decide about it.

Our staff will always inspect the cars after each use and will mark the damages on the check-out sheet, however, we always ask customers to double check this since the cars can receive damage during their stay in the parking lot. This way both parties are aware of the damage that the car has on it before departing. On return, if our agents find damages that were not marked, they proceed to investigate and if it's considered that it occurred during this rental period, the customer will be charged for it.
