“Good reliable company”

Written on: 16/10/2018 by NadiaVogel75 (1 review written)

It was an easy process to select a hire company and choose a car. The prices quoted by Argus were at least as good as other providers - mostly better - for the same class of car. All paperwork was clear and easy to understand; although the details about what documents the hire company would require when picking up the vehicle were more than they actually wanted to see on the day. We've used Argus before - and will most likely use them again in future… Read Full Review

“Need to improve the service time and the quality of...”

Written on: 15/10/2018 by Perkins1984 (1 review written)

The pick up was somewhat removed from the airport proper so this delayed us in getting to our final destination. The actual pickup process OK with minimum documents and paperwork. I agreed to an upgrade, but in retrospect this was a mistake. When the final agreed car was shown to us we were told that there was some prior damage to the car. As all the documentation was completed and we were under pressure I agreed to proceed. While the damage was noted on the documentation the details of the… Read Full Review

“Good service”

Written on: 28/09/2018 by guHood51 (1 review written)

Arrived at the desk and I was seen within a few mins. The staff member was friendly and helpful, she explained everything simply. We walked to the car garage (just a short walk even with suitcases) and the lady in the kiosk dealt with us efficiently and directed us to where our class of vehicle was situated. We had booked a Chevrolet Spark type vehicle and we chose a Nissan Versa, which I think is bigger and was comfortable able to hold our luggage in the trunk. Exiting the airport was… Read Full Review

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

Brand new car. And in excellent condition. Staff was very nice and profficional, he even helped us with the luggage. He was expaining everything regarding the rental and insurance, gave technical details about the car and advices about the roads. Then he gave us the gps navigation system for free. Drop off was very smooth and quick. Took less than 5min. And they dropped us from the parking to the terminal with the car, so the we wont have to move the luggage… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2018 by lorna15 (1 review written)

Was a quick and easy service, but the insurance you buy with Argus doesn't take any affect with the actual company you are renting the car from. When I arrived in Alicante was hit with a big deposit of 1050 euros from centauro which I think should have been said on the website before I considered renting the car… Read Full Review

“Don’t book with Argus”

Written on: 25/09/2018 by neilmanders (1 review written)

Car hire introductory service who deceive you in both the product and the service they offer. A company that washes their hands of you when things go wrong (excess charges,) and hide behind the claim of being an introductory service. Stick to booking direct with reputable international car hire companies, it WILL cost you less in time, money and aggravation. I urge you to put companies like this out of business by not being seduced by their low cost claims, if it’s too good to be true then it… Read Full Review

“RIP off ”

Written on: 24/09/2018 by Michellethole (1 review written)

Off site lication was hard to find, poorly lit and remote. Car provided was old and scratched. Key fob broken. Staff were rude and agressive enough in front of our two young children to make me feel anxious. Ended up paying an additional €75 for a polish that they were going to do anyway. Would not recommend ever. Feel like I have been completely ripped off. Transfer bus was a poor standard too. Rear seat belts were broken… Read Full Review

“Great Car”

Written on: 20/09/2018 by dmez (2 reviews written)

The car was exactly the right car, fuel efficient and a dream to drive. No one was at the designated spot for meeting at the airport. Had to call. However they were there in only 5 minutes after that. The person at the desk was a bit pushy on getting extra insurance coverage. After that had a great experience with the car. Drop off was very smooth and fast… Read Full Review

“Friendly and efficient service”

Written on: 10/09/2018 by Mirandayu349 (1 review written)

Enterprise is easy to locate and near the arrivals hall in Nantes airport. No queue at the admin desk. Paperwork process was speedy. At the car handover point, the staff member was very friendly and very clear on what classed as damage and went through existing scratches on the car and pointed out all the features specific to our hire car. He even gave us advice on places to visit which we greatly appreciated. The car was new and in great condition. Similarly we had a very positive and speedy… Read Full Review

“Ruined holiday”

Written on: 06/09/2018 by hobgoblin47 (1 review written)

Very recently my husband and I took a trip to Ireland, booking a hire car through Argus well in advance. When we got to the airport we then had to ring a number to arrange transport to where the car was to be collected from. It took half an hour to finally get through and that was going through their city branch and the call being transferred. At times the number was engaged, sometime unavailable or just not answered. When I finally got through I was told very bluntly there was no car for me. I… Read Full Review

“Beware of Argus and avoid dealing with them! ”

Written on: 04/09/2018 by JekaS (1 review written)

Beware, avoid! I had a terrible experience with this company, Argus Car Hire, this August. I had a reservation to pick up my car in an airport with plans to make family vacation travelling quite long distances. Hotels and places to visit on the road were already booked as well. When I approached rental's company office, they refused to provide a car saying my driving license is not an "international". That was completely not true since it was printed with Roman letters and my country is on… Read Full Review

“Fast and efficient.”

Written on: 31/08/2018 by givit1 (1 review written)

Good prices for the car hire. The only problem is that, “as usual”, when you pick up the car, the employee at the desk claims that the insurance you subscribed to on line is no good and that it would be better and safer for you to subscribe an insurance policy at the desk. They almost convinced me but....when I saw that the insurance they proposed costed 25 euro per day, whilst the online insurance policy costed me about 35 euro for 6 days...so I refused it and kept my online insurance. … Read Full Review
