Pros: Everything was really simple and easy from pick-up to drop-off. I would definitely use them again especially because they have the most affordable rates! Really happy with everything. Budget Aeropuerto De Palma. Budget not so budget minded. Nice roomy car to drive. Good site lines. Good fuel economy.
Cons: I was charged many add one that I told the budget attendant I did not want, repeatedly. I had to return before car pick up and demand they take the extra charges off, which they did. Would not use Budget Mallorca again basedo on my experience. Pros: The staff was very friendly and the car was mostly in good shape. Cons: There was some trash left in the car and the line to get to an agent took forever.
Ingeniero Gabriel Roca, 19 Bajo. Son San Juan Airport. Overcharged at return. Disseminat Aeropuerto. Cons: The rental did not say what rental car company. I assumed Ace was the company - but it was Goldcar. Not shown anywhere on the reservation. Cons: Our reservation time upon booking through priceline defaulted to 12 pm, but our flight didn't get in until 6 pm. I had called priceline and they said not to worry about it, but when we got there, they said our rental had expired and they couldn't find us in the system.
Now we had to book a brand new rental, which was of course much more expensive and included insurance we could not decline. Where the heck is ACE? Pros: Car size Have to ask where to go for ACE. Was not scheduled to pay for insurance. Our credit card covered that. But agent insisted that if we didn't take insurance the euros charged for a 'hold' would not be returned when car was returned, but a month later and we would have to ask the credit card company for that euros.
You have to pay additional insurance. Even if you had one. The only thing is the fiat , but i think i need to thank fiat for that. Cons: First i couldnt take car without additional insurance, even if i had one. Then, i couldnt pay with my eur card as it was mastercard.
They wanted visa. There were 4 of us, so i had to discuss additional insurance amount with my tripmates. When we agreed for that eur more, there were noone to help us as this guy i was talking to went for a break. I dont even know if i get deposit back, on the parking lot there was noone to help us. Nobody cheked the car. But its one hour left and i dont think so Pros: Cheap car, worked, no issues, Bluetooth audio on lowest priced car. Cons: The check-in clerk tried to sell me their insurance with "I hope you read the conditions" for more than the price of rental.
I said I already have an insurance from Kayak where I booked it. She started that first of all they do not work with Allianz which is the provider and that it's not possible because Allianz could not know what car they are renting me. On the insurance conditions of Allianz, which was quarter the price they offered, there was a line that said that I should call them if the checkin clerk explains that it's not valid, I started dialling and suddenly it was possible to leave a deposit as a credit card authorization, don't get another insurance.
The car smelled of cigarettes when I got it, but it was probably cleaned and it was a residual smell. It was quite difficult to find ace at the airport. The information said it's operated by Rhodium. Which in turn is operated at the airport by goldcar. So after getting an ace car, I had to find Goldcar which was not mentioned, but I figured. Pros: The car was nice and a good price. The staff at "Goldcar" were professional. Cons: I wasn't told that I needed to pick up my Ace car at Goldcar. Had to make an international call in Mallorca airport to help line to find out.
Bought Allianz ins. Had to buy another much higher priced insurance at the counter. Then had to make 2 more international calls to find out what insurance I did purchase so I could cancel it. Not what you want to do when you are overseas. Cons: it was horrible. Aeropuerto de Mallorca. Avenida 'Ingeniero Gabriel Roca', Cons: Unclear upsell of insurances. Never ever in my life and I hope for you too.
Cons: I've been renting many cars in my life and this is absolutely the worst company on the planet and it's also a scam. Let's start from the end, after I dropped the car I received an email with two pictures of the front seat's floors with normal dust on it.
They witholded Euro 30 from the gasoline deposit to vacuum it. Infact when collecting the car they charged Euro 86 for gasoline and they were supposed to return it at return if car was returned full.
So they took the freedom to keep Euro 30 form my deposit for the gasoline to vacuum the car. Anyway, they will pay for it, dearly.
Also if you don't want insurance they charge you with a Euro deposit. Overall it is a scamming company.
