The fuel warning light came on after 5 minutes of driving. Had we collected the car late at night, we would have been stranded with an empty tank. Rentalcars have passed us on to a couple of people who are intent on supplying old ex- rental cars Cars4U and they are simply trying to take money from holiday makers.
From my 20 years of holiday car rentals , they are without doubt THE worst. Go to a major reputable company - it will give you peace of mind and put these crooks out of business. I had a similar situation with these guys Cars4U booked through Car Del Mar using travel supermarket website.
We arrived and were told we didn't have full insurance. When we got the car it was in a bad state too so I suspect they would have tried to charge us for at least one of the bumps and scratches broken wing mirror etc. I received no receipt of this insurance payment they would only accept cash as they claimed they couldn't take card payments. The man told me 'the insurance covers everything' using that exact phrase.
When I returned the car I had to inform them that we had broken the key an unfortunate incident at the beach involving a wave and a badly placed rucksack The remote no longer functioned. I was told that I would have to pay a fine as the insurance did not cover the keys. The man the same one as before claimed he tells all customers that the insurance doesn't cover the keys. I know that he didn't say this to me so can only assume he was not telling the truth.
I accepted that the key breaking was my fault so prepared to pay a fine. I told them I didn't have any cash on me but they said it wasn't a problem, I could pay by card a previously absent card machine now appeared to be available.
I didn't want to pay this fine so I asked them to send me an itemised invoice which I could contest. They took my email address and then my card details the woman wrote down my card number and security number as she said she didn't trust me to pay. I asked her directly not to take any money until I had been sent an invoice, she agreed.
On the way to the airport to drop us off, the man told me that they would take the money out of my account not send me an invoice. By now I didn't feel comfortable at all with the whole set-up.
So far I have not been charged and they have not emailed me to clam the money, I suspect this is because they would have to officially write down what the charge was for.
Either way, the whole thing felt very bad from start to finish, the car was bad and the service was bad. I would not use Car Del Mar or Cars4U again I usually make a policy of not using anyone who uses the whole 4U thing in their name, but in this case it was don't without my knowledge.
I would use a known dealer or at least someone that previous customers have said are good. These guys have a lot of bad reviews online, people being charged for bringing back cars with full tanks and the company taking random mounts of money for unknown charges. Sorry to hear that you fell foul of these crooks too. I have written to Trip Advisor asking them to place car rental companies onto their website.
They cover hotels, restaurants and attractions, so why not? Many people go on holiday and hire a car and this is a considerable expense without cheap shysters muscling in and sticking their grubby hand into our pockets. Sadly, they had no plans to add car rental , which is a shame as it would help shut some of these crooks down by starving them of business. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers.
