Hi with faro airport it is so easy to find car desks
like all foreign rental desks they try and sell you something you don't need
DanieleMay 21, 2017
Nice car - did the job as expected.
People at the counter were slow and disengaged.

Helpfulness of staff and speed of service
Computer problem with car telling us that rear tyre needed air - when we returned car and told them about message they seemed to be aware of fault
RobertMay 19, 2017

The Car
RussellMay 19, 2017
Happy with the service but took over an hour to pick car up . There was only 1 person in front of me but he took soooooo long. My check in took 20 mins but overall very happy with service and car. I booked a Ford Focal and was given a Fiat 500 x and was happy. Would recommend and use again. The drop off was exceptionally quick and easy. Thankyou

AhmedMay 6, 2017
The friendly staff, the price/quality ratio.
The high fee for Insurance
May 6, 2017
Car oke, personnel friendly.
Find the office. and afterwards the car mentioned in the contract was already hired, so the contract needed to be changed.Also the amount of guarantee had to be changed. These two facts made me loose some time.
joseMay 5, 2017
Staff helpful and simpatic
My personal opinion The car shouldn't be with scratches out side looks bad for the one who rent If for some reason there was a client that had accident before should be fixed before rent again
JeanMay 4, 2017
Good service
Nothing, all good
PhilipMay 4, 2017
I really appreciated the face to face discussion in the purpose built rental building which is easy to find. The car itself was modern and comfortable. The counter staff took me to my car as the parking number was not on the key - this is a little service enhancement (taking customer to the car) that you might want to consider.
The wait / que after arrivals to get the car.
stephenMay 4, 2017
Very good and promptservice
VictoriaApril 30, 2017
Staff were very helpful. Especially Joao Oliveira who was fantastic on our return. He dropped us at the airport hotel because we had a small child with us......fabulous act of kindness and great customer service for your brand.

This was one of the best best experiences of hiring a car I've ever had. The staff were great. Really helpful, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. It was busy when we arrived but we didn't seem to be waiting too long. The car was immaculate and well maintained. Top marks for Budget.

Financial aspects excellent - refund on credit card deposit returned within 3 days of return to UK

The service once we got to the counter
The very long wait and the fact we had to wait to get the car as well.
JoseApril 16, 2017
That the car got replaced for another car.
That the car given to me had a malfunction.
April 7, 2017
As wife of creditcard owner had to pay extra for driving the car.!
VictorMarch 29, 2017
Offered us a Peugeot 108 which did not serve our purpose. However when we told the clerk that this was not in accordance with the booking that we made with Rental Cars, he was very co-operative. He checked to see what was available and he came back and told us that if we could wait for 15 minutes he can get us a new Renault Captur.
VickiMarch 27, 2017

Great to have an upgrade. Nice young man served us when collecting.
March 10, 2017
Speedy pick up and drop off.
No information provided concerning the controls of the car. We had to change it because a warning light came on - again no info re controls. I have no idea what I have been charged for as there was no itemised bill.
KennethMarch 8, 2017
The Counter Staff were very efficient and explained everything in great detail
MarkFebruary 26, 2017
Friendly, helpful staff, easy to find desk. Good English spoken. :-) Car was clean and tidy, reliable, big enough and fuel efficient.
The instructions about getting out of the airport car park (swipe card/where/how to swipe) could have been clearer. The car was underpowered for those Madeiran hills! No wheeltrims made the car look a bit naff.
DavidFebruary 23, 2017
excellent efficent and friendly staff
JohnFebruary 8, 2017
Good and valuable advice from the Lady at the desk.Very nice young Lady receive the car on return with a courteous service.
