    Great car, price and service. The bad reviews on here are from people who didn’t do their research up front. If you don’t buy Surprice insurance, they will require a hold of a couple thousand euros on your credit card. They will charge extra for “off-hours” pickup/drop. Understand these conditions and you won’t find a better deal in Faro.

Au comptoir un dimanche midi face à une personne qui refuse de parler un minimum anglais et qui vous propose comme seule solution le paiement de leur assurance magique qui permet de baisser considérablement le prix de la caution à 400€. Le prix de départ de 44,90 € imbattable s'est transformé à 190€ ce qui pour le coup faisait cher pour les prestations offertes (obligation de prendre une navette pour prendre la voiture)!!

Surprice wasn't bothered about this though I had booked a larger vehicle. I only excepted the fiat panda due to having 3 children with me and it being late at night.

    Hired a Seat Ibiza or similar - received a Toyota Yaris, which is more of a budget model than I would have expected. The car was brand new though so that was a plus. Initial pickup was fine, but car was experiencing major faults when idling - twice the engine fully cutting out at busy roundabouts. Decided car was not fit to drive so once we finally got the car going again we drove back to the pickup point. Service centre were very quick to identify a loose battery connection, and also told us (then!) as to a trick with the Yaris that needs a double-pump of the clutch. Can't fault the service staff, as quickly resolved the issue. Annoying not to be told about the clutch particular though, as that should have been mentioned at collection of the car. Car was ok for the rest of the trip. Most annoying part has been communication with the head office since, where I have asked for some compensation to cover fuel and road tolls we incurred as a result of going back to the collection point to have the car fixed. Very little understanding and no empathy whatsoever. Really disappointed with this and won't recommend this company as a result.

    Well, first of all they never answered the phone when we tried to call to inform them that our flight had been changed and that we would arrive earlier. So when we actually arrived, they were not quite happy. Still, we got the car. But then, they asked for a credit card, which we had, but didnt want OUR credit cards so they made us pay an insurance to cover the "risk" of not having a credit card. Anyways, the car was fine and we were pretty satisfied with it. Just the employees were a bit off.

    Only comment is as the rental office is off airport need clear direction /assistance on how get car back to rental site and useful if client asks for help on arrival for onward travel. Staff were not helpful, I was told there was sat nav in the car , but found it a nightmare to use and I had no proper address for return journey to input . Something as simple as having the rental site saved as a favourite on the sat nav ? Or if client has address for onward location , shown how to use dat nav if going to use it when travelling ...It dies cause me some worry while I was away ., but good car , price and general service. It has made me think I’d rather have an on-site pickup at airport , no stress on getting lost and motorway fines.

    Worst experience in the past 10 years. I was refused to pay by debit card and given no option but to buy again the insurance at double the price I already paid online- €15/day because I didn't have a credit card. Charged an out of hours fee for dropping off the car before 8:00. Pushed into hiring a tag for motorway at €1.85/day when I had to pay the tolls anyway and could have done without it as you could pay with cash or card at pay points. I felt bullied and ripped off. Only had a Toyota Aygo with no cruise control, no parking sensors no key remote lock, but I paid the price for a large premium car. Never ever will use this company nor reccomend to anyone.

    The car was very basic. Collection was long, we had to pay for a toll road box in the car and they held my credt card details incase there was any damage they could take up to €1500 which was a worry as my card was empty for my holiday. Also we took out insurance with another company which they told us was not really the right thing to do. The car had alot of marks and scratches and we was told we will be charged for any imperfection no matter how small. On the third day the engine management light, anti skid break and exclamation warning lights all came on. I contacted them and emailed images they said 'oh don't worry as the lights are yellow its ok if they change to red then they will collect it and we will have to go to the office by taxi and get another car" so it was a worry to be driving it with all the lights on. The whole experience was not nice, I would never use this company again.

But it was a shame that when the car was returned, the petrol meter was broken and that the lady of the rental company did not believe that the tank was full. She didn't want to see the receipt, while the gas station is across the street from this rental company. It still feels annoying how the handing went.

    The car was new but the gear box had been clearly ragged about and reverse was easy to slip in to, few marks and scuffs but generally a good, large estate. The baby child seat that we paid over €50 for the week was useless. It was not secure using seatbelts and it was well used, it had no isofix base. The shuttle on collection did not have a car seat either and my baby had to sit on my knee. The pick up process was slow and painful. On both occasions (pick up and drop off) I heard many complaints about extra charges. We were also charged extra as the credit card was in my partner’s name and we had to add her as a driver, even though the t&c’s said if the cc was in the name of someone else, further ID may be required. Overall I think I will pay more in the future for collection at the airport, Surprice clearly need more staff and a smoother more streamlined pick up process.

    I advise not to rent from this company, although the prices are attractive. Between 8 p.m. and 8 p.m., a € 35 surcharge is requested to pick-up or bring the car. This while they advertise as a rental company for Faro Airport! Picking up after 8 p.m. is a real problem because they have 1 employee at the office. In my case there was a waiting time for more than an hour and a half. They give me a different car than ordered and the car was parked in a dark corner and the gas tank was not full. The car had to be inspected in the dark, so that a small scratch on the bumper was not noticed. When returning the car a few days later, the employee immediately walked up to the almost invisible scratch on the bumper and said that this would cost € 215,-. There was nothing to argue against this because the damage was not mentioned on the form! The car rental for 5 days actually came to € 300. It's better to rent at a famous brand such as Herts or Europcar, to prevent disappointments afterwards

    Getting to the pick up location was difficult. We had specified that we wanted a car that was at the airport, not offsite. This was disappointing and added an hour to the pick up time. There were not many signs, and only a small shuttle from the airport which meant a long wait. Once there, there was many additional costs that were not outlined in the original rental. Including a €35 fee for late pick up, which was really the company’s fault for taking so long to shuttle all the customers. Staff at the check in desk were rude, and short tempered when we asked them to repeat the details of the overage charges. They must understand in their line of work there will be a language barrier. The car itself was great, but would never rent from this company again. It ended up being just as much if not more than renting from a nicer company in the airport terminal, and not worth wasting time with rude staff and lugging bags across the airport.

    The staff where putting pressure on us spending more money on all sorts. This was not said when we booked. We ended up paying 171.95 Euros, was disgusting as we had our own insurance they said it didn't cover but it 100% did. As they said they didn't understand my argument they said is this amount or nothing. Then they charged huge amount on the credit card which I still wait to get back. Awful would never book again. We book cars at least 10 times a year and this was the worst yet due to adding money on top.
