“Car rental with Discovery cars and others”

Written on: 15/08/2020 by BTreacy (2 reviews written)

Gold car are allowing agents like Discover Cars and YOU Do Spain to make so called bookings on their car fleet. Customers complete and pay on these "agent" websites and get directed to collect the cars from Gold Car destinations at (eg) airports.
However when customers turn up for their car they get asked to pay massive extra amounts in bogus insurance additions and airport or other surcharges. Gold Car are fully aware of what is going on and are making heaps of money from it as customers often arrive with families or no alternative options but too pay up and get fleeced.

I booke through Discover for a weeks car hire - a bargain at Euro 56 and the website said it included everything I needed. At the Gold car counter however, they wanted a extra Euro 393! I am local so I told them where to go but the person next to me had just come from the UK and was forced tp ay an additional Euro 400. He gave me a lift into town.

Avoid GOLD.
