Prompt attention from Bravacar when needed.
AlanMarch 22, 2017
Got the car we ordered and when a minor fault (cigarette lighter) was found they swopped us to an identical model with no fuss.
Car was meant to have a full tank, turned out to be about a qtr which makes it difficult to return with the same amount. Had to wait at the airport for pickup and unable to contact office to check they knew we had arrived.
KevinMarch 10, 2017
Staff very good and accommodating. Car was an older car which we expected but was very good value for money and we had no problems at all with it.
davidFebruary 21, 2017
The pick up on time,the time it took to pick up and drop off car and taken to airport all very good.
The car was very old and very scraped and not very good on the steep hills of Madeira.
January 4, 2017
All of it
StuartDecember 13, 2016
The people at the Hire Centre and how easily it was all done especially as I had to use a debit card and not a credit card as thanks to my wonderful EX wife I can no longer get credit so well done Bravacar. I'll be using you in the future for sure
There was nothing to dislike !
ThomasDecember 5, 2016
Off Airport and they don't try to sell you extra insurance.
Booked a Ford Ka and as usual got a 6 year old Fiat Panda.
KamilAugust 26, 2016
Everything was perfect, when we returned the car we just left the key at the reception of our hotel and they picked it up :-)
July 11, 2016
The paperwork
Bad directions to drop off at Santa Cruz branch. No road signs off highway.Pity they dont have a branch in the airport.
MichaelJuly 5, 2016
The staff were friendly and as we were delayed I thought the driver who waited at the airport for us was very patient and welcomed us with a smile which made up for the pressure of our delayed arrival
The car was an old model and it did not have enough power for the hills.
April 24, 2016
It's close to the airport and the cheapest company around. Very fast service.
The quality of the car provided was poor, the back doors wouldn't open unless you went inside the car, reached into the back to open. To open the boot you had to press a button inside and there was no handle outside so had to have small fingers to get in the gap. The boot cover wouldn't go down with the boot. The buttons on the key didnt work.
March 25, 2016
Changed First Car after one day due to vehicle not performing properly.
peterFebruary 23, 2016
We had a puncture, informed Bravacars who came out to fetch us, then gave us a replacement car with minimal delay on a dark , wet and windy evening. Both cars were excellent and exactly met our needs.
January 17, 2016
When we drop off the car the gentleman took us to the airport in the same car, was very kind of him.
??? 7, 2015
Excellent service, no hidden costs. The time shown above for pick up is because Bravacar is off-site, but we were met at the airport within a few minutes and taken to their office.
PeterAugust 24, 2015
No fuss and no problems about the car rental
We were in the arrivals hall quickly after landing and waited about 15 minutes for the Bravacar representative to turn up
July 20, 2015
Good value and pleasant staff
I would suggest in Madeira people get a more powerful car than the basic as hills are tricky!
July 5, 2015
best price I could find
car had little power, site long way from airport, trouble finding it, child seat very old and hard to fit.
June 25, 2015
the price are good
the state of the car was really bad
StephenJune 24, 2015
The ease of transfer to and from the airport.
The chaotic condition of the rental site. Lack of good/large identification on the transfer bus.
May 31, 2015
Picked the car up from the hotel without previously asking. Nice staff.
Car quite battered and making a few noises, didn't have a manual so unable to find out what warning signs meant
MargaretMay 26, 2015
Everything was good, very friendly staff
Maybe you could explain bit better about where to meet the representative from your company .
PeterMay 23, 2015
Efficient, friendly staff and the vehicle was good value for the money paid.
Not easy to know where to go to get picked up from the airport (the rep was not in the arrival area) iTherefor a noticeboard displaying Bravacar and explaining where the pick up point was would be useful, especially if the representative is not available
JanApril 9, 2015
Car in good condition, no troubles
Fuel tank nearly emty, I would expect full tank, and return with full tank, it is more comfortable and for sure better for me as a customer
March 17, 2015
We were given a lift back to our Ship we didn't need to find a taxi
Car had quite a few knocks
February 24, 2015
Arrangements for pickup
January 13, 2015
no signs in the airport to guide us to bravocar we had to ask the travelguides what to do, as the Company was represented by one person coming and leaving the airport with new customers. Luckily he came back after 10 min and we found him
JohnJanuary 5, 2015
The car was OK didn't let us down, we got what we paid for. This is the 2nd time we have used them, the cars are old.
The breaks needed a lot of attention. There was a very bad vibration when breaking when coming dowm a hill. I mentioned it to the repesentative when I dropped the car back.
ChristopherDecember 9, 2014
I got the hotel reception to ask for the car to be delivered and it was done without question
If I was going to Madeira again I'd hire something with a bigger engine. It was supposed to be hired with the tank full, but it was empty so I ended up leaving half a tank of fuel which I feel is a bit naughty.
Simon??? 27, 2014
Condition of car not good. Clutch/Gearbox in bad condition - very difficult to change gears!
??? 25, 2014
Easiness and low price.
Once the car had trouble starting the engine.
AlanJune 17, 2014
The thorough walk round the vehicle before departing.
Not knowing how to make contact with Brava Cars at the airport as they are off site, we had to ring them to arrange for some one to meet us. The car was so underpowered for the hilly terrain of Madeira would suggest anyone wishing to extensively explore the Island to upgrade to a 1600cc car.
April 29, 2014
Everything was just fine
KristiinaApril 16, 2014
depreciated cars
charlesApril 6, 2014
Car was covered in dents and scratches .
April 4, 2014
Everything was OK !
April 1, 2014
freedom to drive around where we wanted
the car was a wreck and very tatty
SvendMarch 27, 2014
The engine size of Nissan Micra is to small for a place like Madeira - and the car had a rather high milage.
March 27, 2014
quick administration
the car was powerless
PetrMarch 19, 2014
The rental car company is close to the hotel area in Funchal, easy to find. The price of the rental in Madeira is overally much lower than in Europe.
The car was older than expected, litlle bit bumped form both rear sides. But running fine, low consuption.
March 18, 2014
no easy to find...
March 10, 2014
