the car was nice, the price was good.
the way the stuff tried to convince me to buy an extra package (full insurance) was too aggressive and a bit rude. I would say it affected the mood that I had during my holiday (a bit, but still was dissapointing)

Hassle free and extremely friendly service. This is exactly what you need when you are on a vacation.

Sara, helpdesk costumer assistan in Funchal Airport, was amazing.
When you get full insurance they give you a car whois not in the best condition.

helpfulness Staff
Time waiting to drop car off, because I don't make car secure
TerryNovember 3, 2016
I liked being upgraded without any fuss. The car was immaculate. Easy to drive (after finding out to press the start twice.
Nothing really.
October 17, 2016
The good advice from the staff at the airport
November 12, 2015
Generally the car was good - comfortable and clean.
The car was far far too weak. The engine of the car was simply not strong enough for driving on Madeira. This island is full of big slopes, hills and so on. It's really dangerous to drive such a car there. It will be safier if cars would have more power.

The ease of service ,great helpful staff. The car was spotless and a dream to drive. It was our honeymoon and between the hire car, hotel and Madeira it was perfect thank you
CAJALNovember 5, 2015
Nos encantó el modelo, un Juke, por eso lo contratamos.
Que el coche tenía bollos. Y quizá un poquito más limpio.
EdmundoOctober 29, 2015
I am happy it was comfortable
I did not like that was hole in tyre
August 20, 2015
See above
Car was underpowered for the hilly terrain on Madeira. Would not have coped with any more than a couple in it (only a 1000cc engine).

May 15, 2015
No worry about fuel, when receiving the car and drop it. No worry to leave the car keys.
the clean was just fine.
May 6, 2015
The return of the car was very easy.
The car Nissan Juke was technically not in full order, the hand break was too loose. Check in was very complicated and time consuming although the pre check in.

It 's a pitty about their fuel policy, it is giving a wrong impression .
March 19, 2015
All, except pick up ( but because of us to).
SallyMarch 17, 2015
Full tank of petrol too much for size of island and expensive. Would rather return full. Also rather gutless(underpowered) for terrain.

KENNETHJune 15, 2014
Efficiency of the counter staff and the way I was treated due to having to wait so long, The girl who issued me the car is a credit to your company I recommended Goldcar to everyone I spoke to. Unfortuneatly I was unable to talk to her in person on my return her customer relationship was impeccable please forward these comments on my behalf. Thanks again Kenny C craig.
You could do with more staff to reduce the waiting time.
