“Rented off these guys 10 times +”

Written on: 27/08/2011 by ste6085 (1 review written)

I have rented off these guys on and off for the last 5 years, maybe 10 rentals in total. They are cheap in comparison to the other companies and still offer FULL/FULL fuel arrange anent. I use the car to travel from the airport to my house , occasional trips to the supermarket, gym and beach and then return. In a week's holiday I generally need o put 10-20 Euro's of fuel to return the car full (in comparison to a Full/Empty arrangement which would cost 40-60 Euros). The cars are all Kia… Read Full Review

“Awful company. ”

Written on: 29/04/2011

Awful company.

We booked a car with econorent through hirecarsinspain.com. We booked a child seat and website stated free second driver and return car half full.

All lies, Econorent wanted to charge extra for second driver, wanted us to return the car full of petrol and worst of all didn't even offer child seats!

Paid extra for a tatty old child seat from a different car rental company which took ages.

Contacted hirecarsinspain on our return and chased up but only ever was told 'we're… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2010

We were provided a appaling service via carhire 3000 who continue to use the cheapest and worst car hire company in the WORLD. (And I've driven in a few on Earth).
We lost everything inc car keys overboard the ensuing domino effect ruined our holiday. Auriga Crown hire apparently has a history of not giving any help to there customers. If you give them a credit card you may as well burn it, as they will put any unGreen friendly fuel charge on it they can. Without informing you, they will lie to… Read Full Review

An absolute con! They provide you with a useless car and after you arrive home after your holiday they deduct money off your card! They took about £150 off mine, and are completely uncontactable afterwards! YOU WOULD BE AN ABSOLUT MUG TO USE THESE GUYS!!!!!!!!

Any 5 star reviews must have been when the other owners had the company, as these guys (a mother and son) are absolute bandits… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2009

I hired a car from Econorent in July, picked it up at the airport, nice car. Dropped it off and put keys in the box as instructed. Two months later, £154 was taken from my bank account by Econorent. After several calls to spain, I was told this was taken as I had scratched the car. After several more phone calls and arguments I was refunded half of my money. Beware!… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2009

Found the Econorent website by trawling the web and found them to be very competitive. When you see the name you have reservations but the service was very good, even a personal call prior to departure confirming your current requirements. I'd requested a 7 seater to carry 5 adults and luggage, specifying a VW Touran or similar vehicle. Arrived at Alicante to find the meeting point had moved from the van in the car park to a small office on the upper level and that I'd been allocated a Chrysler… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2009

We rented through arguscarhire.com and chose Econrent on value. We had heard that ALL car hire companies on the Costas were having trouble supplying vehicle because they had not been able obtain new inventory due to banks not lending, so we called and asked them to confirm that we would get the sought of vehicle we wanted e.g 7 seater. They confirme that there was no problem and rang us a few weeks before our trip to ensure that we still wanted the vehicle and once again confirmed that there… Read Full Review

Used Econorent in Alicante and Murcia and been looked after very well, availability of an Automatic had been important. However, almost every rental car we've used hasn't had a full supply of water for the windscreen. Overall I remain satisfied with Econorent and to their staff's respectfullness… Read Full Review

“The good points were the return car and full policy....”

Written on: 30/07/2008

The good points were the return car and full policy. The bad points, The car needed a service (spanner sign constantly on on the dashboard) and the alternator bearing was going so the car made a constant whine. This problem was from the start of the rental (so not a new development). Request for a replacement car was turned down as they were sold out. We saved a bit by using Econorent but not enough to make up for the constant whine. The car should not have been sent out like this. We won't… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2008 by katrinachesney (2 reviews written)

Having just returned home from Alicante I thought I would let people know that with a company called Econorent that I booked through hirecarsinspain.com you can return your car full of fuel which I know from reading other reviews is an important point in car hire in Spain.
Hire Cars in Spain and Econorent were really helpful from booking the car too collecting and returning the car.
Many thanks … Read Full Review
