The whole experience (except the one thing I didn't like) was fine. OK, another hire car experience, little different from the hundreds of others, in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, but the car suited our purpose, was reliable, economical and didn't let us down. The lad at the Budget return kiosk was brilliant, polite, efficient. The wait at the desk getting the car. After an early morning start and a 4-hour flight, having to wait half an hour for a member of staff,was tiresome. But over and above that nothing to complain about.
Paul Funchal Airport 20 February 2018
The customer service at pick up and return were first class. The car was very clean One very visible area of damage was not itemised for us. I do not believe the fuel tank was completely full on recipt.

Reception when I arrived and a polite and friendly lady, did all paperwork quickly and efficiently When dropping car off - only one attendant in place, it was windy and raining and no decent facility to take refuge from "the elements"!!

Anonymous Funchal Airport 13 October 2017
Nice car. Very friendly and courteous representative at desk. Difficult to find car in large dark car park.
Adrian Funchal Airport 25 September 2017
Polite efficient staff.No hard sell to get excess insurance (which I have) or upgrade. Easy pick-up drop off procedure. Clean interior. Good value for money. SAT-NAV was very inefficient and it was easier to use map. Car was fairly high mileage for a rental. Quite a few minor external scratches from previous hirers. Engine was a bit under-powered for mountainous terrain but it was the car I had chosen.
Philip Funchal Airport 23 September 2017
Service. Car. Value I couldn't extend the hire without completing the contract and starting another one.
ROBERT Funchal Airport 13 September 2017
Very few people in the queue at check in The car offered was a Citroen and I found being a tall guy more difficult to get into than the CLEO which has a larger cabin entry
Penelope Funchal Airport 29 July 2017
Getting the car we booked Wait at airport - only 3 people ahead of us but took an hour The car had an American style handbrake which had not encountered before - no notification of this/how to use it which as unusual in Europe Should have been highlighted as could cause an accident especially in Madeira which is so hilly!
Michael Funchal Airport 26 July 2017
Various unexpected charges on final invoice. Gearbox on the car (Citron C4 auto) was awful (design issue I think)
Barry Funchal Airport 19 June 2017
Great service from the friendly reception staff.A short walk from the airport to collect the car - a pedestrianised bridge takes you directly to the rental car park. Good value rental car and an easy drop off when departing. Can't think of anything - you get what you pay for, in this case it was good value for the money. Well done.

Good car well presented Time taken at the rental desk only one person on duty and we were in a queue
jose Funchal Airport 05 May 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
chris Funchal Airport 28 April 2017
Easy to use no hassle good price Counter a little slow. Drop off staff arrived 10Minutes late and a queue had formed so return was too slow
Anonymous Funchal Airport 17 April 2017
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.
Roger Funchal Airport 25 March 2017
Nice car which suited my needs
Mark Funchal Airport 26 February 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.
John Funchal Airport 08 February 2017
Good and valuable advice from the Lady at the desk.Very nice young Lady receive the car on return with a courteous service.

very pleased with the vehicle Had problems with the sat nav the staff member didnt know how to use it and we could not get it to accept the town or post code it seemed to be in prescriptive mode so we had to turn it off in the end.
Richard Funchal Airport 16 April 2016
The friendliness and efficiency of the staff plus the make and model of the car which was perfect for my needs. I was not able to keep the car!!! (It was such a good vehicle).
