“DONT USE THIS RENTAL BROKER....WORST SERVICE EVER”

Written on: 02/10/2018 by egBlevins317 (1 review written)

Forget to use their service....not only they are cheating on the booking procedures (not clear), but they dont provide any service and if you are in toruble or experience issue while taking the car, they will not help you. I would suggest to check the prices in their website (or others one) and then go directly to the Rental Car company. I have experienced an horrible service. Lack of help, no professionalism ect...AVOID THEM… Read Full Review

“Hire Car in Papthos”

Written on: 28/09/2018 by Westont59 (1 review written)

Do not use this company. We booked and paid for a car but upon arrival at Papthos Airport the car had damage that was not included on the form and the car had no spare wheel. The staff were unhelpful and left us stranded. What was worse is that you have to wait until you return to the UK for a refund and then its at least a 2 week wait. Awful service go elsewhere… Read Full Review

“lousy customer service”

Written on: 27/09/2018 by IgnacioBradford32 (1 review written)

For starters, the web page is slow and heavily bugged - amending the booking was possible only after refreshing the page for the fifth time. It is further impossible to cancel a booking online. One needs to call a number with an unspecified country-prefix which leaves one with more guesswork than necessary and possibly unpredictable costs. The side further invites you to leave a review but there is no send button to actually submit the review. The page is unfit for customer service. … Read Full Review

“Sad and inhumane”

Written on: 13/09/2018 by Alexzander379 (1 review written)

Due to Rentalcars lack of respect and professionalism me and my pregnant wife were left stranded a whole night at the Athens airport. Rentalcars and Goldcars failed to keep professional and ethical standards and refused to compensate us after we had lost hotel, ferry and spent a night at the airport. Please do not hire cars from them, as there is nothing human and their modus operandi, and the lack of professionalism is evident. It is very sad that we got to the point in which this companies… Read Full Review

“Satisfactory ”

Written on: 06/09/2018

Overall, very satisfied with the whole thing. Paper work was done quick enough, and picking up the car was nearer then i would have thought. Car was in very good condition and newer then I expected. Even though I can get a cheaper car outside the airport by myself. But by renting from rentalcars.com that gives me an assurance from getting a good decent car and saving me alot of time and convenient. A good experience for the 1st time to rent from rentalcars.com. Will rent from you all again… Read Full Review

“fully paid up and refused car”

Written on: 25/08/2018 by johnboy07921 (2 reviews written)

I use the web site to purchase a car rental in Tenerife. I chose every optional extra of cover so that I could simply collect and drive. On arrival I found very poor and slow service and ahead of me many unhappy customers. After an incredible long wait I was treated badly and final refused rental. Because I refused to accept the disgusting attitude of their rep. I complained on line showed evidence of their cancelation and have not received a refund or apology. TOPCAR provided a better car… Read Full Review

I booked a car ahead of time thru them / but did not look at the reviews. Got to the Orlando airport Green motion was the rental car company. To get that pre-booked price, I had to show Proof of full coverage insurance! I gave them my insurance company name my agents name and all information including my insurance policy #. They wanted to see my insurance contract to get that price! I left and went next door to another rental car company with no problem. Days later after my phone call, they… Read Full Review

“Rentalcars insurance sold, but not accepted at the rental”

Written on: 13/08/2018 by Zsolt09 (1 review written)

After making a Rentalcars reservation with "full insurance" in Barcelona for a Goldcar vehicle I have checked the details with Goldcar locally. They said they simply do not accept the insurance from Rentalcars, I have to buy the full insurance of Goldcar. I had spent time and money for this useless insurance with Rentalcars, then spend time for asking payback and I am far from being sure that my money will be refunded. :(… Read Full Review

“opodo Booking experience”

Written on: 31/07/2018 by Jacko1968 (1 review written)

I was quite disappointed that even though the system asked for a promotional code which was put on the discount was not carried through to the system so the offer of £20.00 off was not taken into consideration and I could find nowhere on the web site to ask why. In addition the cost of the protection cover and subsequently the screen price almost doubled which was not clear until this had been debited from my credit card. This is a little mis-leading and subsequently the experience of booking… Read Full Review

“Poor if amending booking”

Written on: 31/07/2018

Tried to change drop-off location for my existing booking. First started with their web site. Followed 'manage my booking' instructions went into indefinite loop of pushing new search and message 'no changes have been made'. Installed their app to amend booking, to no avail. Things got even worse because app wanted to change price for the rental. The fact is that both web site and app pushed a new search for a car instead amending booking, increasing price of the existing rental. Wanted also to… Read Full Review

“Worst car rental company”

Written on: 28/07/2018 by eizabeth58 (1 review written)

DO NOT RENT A CAR FROM THIS COMPANY, the small print is hidden. You have to pay £1000 plus deposit for hiring a car. Booked for my son aged 25 arriving at Gatwick, thought it was a good price at £52, but hidden costs far outweigh the value. My son did not have enough credit on his credit car to pay and he was reluctant to anyway as he felt they might find a way to keep this "deposit" of £1000 plus. They do not care about their clients,  other people in Gatwick walked away from their… Read Full Review

“Incompetent ”

Written on: 25/07/2018

We used Rentalcars.com to book a car at Ajaccio Airport, Corsica, from 3rd-17th June 2018, with Alamo. On the return of the car, Alamo, with clear incompetence/unreliability/or worse added a hidden charge of £74 for a supposed lack of fuel. Apart from the fact that their assertions were simply untrue, Alamo's own figures demonstrated without any doubt an attempt to grossly overcharge. Clearly we are unhappy with Alamo. We are also very concerned about the behaviour of Rentalcars.com. We have… Read Full Review
