“Terrible experience”

Written on: 15/11/2019 by brearleys (1 review written)

Awful experience. I hired a car from Goldcar through Argus in Italy in Sept. When we arrived at the car rental counter I was told they couldnt let me have the car because I have an old fashioned driving license without a photo. The confirmatory emailfrom Argus hadn't mentioned this as an issue. I then had to spend £500 hiring a car from Avis. Goldcar said they hadn't received my payment from Argus so when I got back to the UK I asked for a refund. They have refused saying it was in the terms… Read Full Review

“Easy Process”

Written on: 29/10/2019 by Nala1504 (1 review written)

I would use Argus again to search for a car hire but I would not again select Hertz as our car provider. The car we received had a very loud exhaust like there was a hole in it and the car would violently shake when we reached 100km/ph which at only 60mph is a problem with the car! The Argus website was easy to use and quick to book, the confirmation emails and vouchers also came straight through … Read Full Review

“Terrible Company - Avoid at all Costs”

Written on: 28/10/2019 by RichardOrtyl (1 review written)

Terrible Company Avoid at all costs. Booked a car at Gatwick Airport and the hire office was in Crawley and took me 1hr 30 mins to get there as I had to wait for a bus that then made multiple stops. Got to the office which was just a seedy room in a run down hotel and was refused the rental as needed to provide two forms of address ID which was not in the booking email. Staff couldnt care less. Heard the staff arguing with another customer about an excess charge for fuel. Made a complaint… Read Full Review

“It works fine”

Written on: 07/10/2019 by Brown488 (1 review written)

Good price and selection of cars. Easy booking & payment process. Good information and supportive emails. We then received the car for second time in two years from GeenMotion and all went well. We have trust in this company, which is very important for careless vacations. The car was spacious for 4 adults with luggage (VW Caddy). We were fine with the fact that it was a bit ragged car (113000km on the clock) as road conditions on Crete are not the best. It took us virtually everywhere. Will… Read Full Review

“I’ve just this company three times, amazing every time!”

Written on: 23/09/2019 by Reviewermummy (1 review written)

I’ve used a lot of comparison sites in the past and none come even close. Argus Carhire have a great selection of well know hire companies, and their prices are way cheaper than going direct. I’ve no idea why this is as it seems insane, but I’m coming back to Argus for all my carhire needs, as every experience has been fantastic to date. The cars we’ve had have been nice and clean, and the service has been good all around. I’ve also purchased the insurance via Argus, this saving… Read Full Review

“Won’t be using Goldcar again.”

Written on: 02/09/2019 by Uptongw246 (1 review written)

Goldcar staff were polite and friendly on arrival at the desk and then proceeded to use pressure sales and scare tactics in an attempt to take out their insurance at £200 plus (the couple next to us paid £400) even though we had already purchased our own insurance. After a 2 hour drive, 2 hour wait at the airport and the a 2 and a half hour flight arriving late at night with two young children it is very difficult to be able to make the right decision on the spot that could potentially cost… Read Full Review

“Car hire in Canada”

Written on: 31/08/2019 by Burton474 (1 review written)

We arrived late in the evening and we located the car hire company very easily. Just a short walk across the road. The lady at the service desk was very polite and helpful. She was very quick and efficient and clearly explained everything with no fuss even though I had lots of questions for her. It was also great to find out the I could have added a further driver if required. On the return of the car the girl taking the car from me was very polite and looked after us very quickly with no… Read Full Review

“Cheap and good”

Written on: 25/08/2019 by micheldeligt (1 review written)

First time rent with Argus. Selected because of the reasonable price for the rental. Also very clear what was included in the price and what not. We also selected the extra insurance to prevent costs when we should have damaged the car in an accident. Good information by email and online. The rental company Budget was good, short waiting time when getting and retuning the car… Read Full Review
