    Like: Hired the car for 5 day trip. Persuaded to take additional insurance as usual. No Gas station on main road into Alicante airport to refill before return so had to exit terminal and find gas in town.

    Seller tried to force me to buy additional insurance. He was trying to threaten my about what bad could happen. I refused to pay, tried to put 1000 euro cover on my credit card in case of possibly demage but my credit card had limit below this amount. I resigned and didn't pick up the car, afterall this was my vacation and I didn't want to bother myself about additional expenses or thinking what bad could happen to the car.

    They did try to hard sell extra insurance cover even when we refused, they tried hard to sell to us. Made us feel quite uncomfortable.

    Hiring the car was really easy. The only issue was a really long wait to do the paperwork before car. The counter staff were very helpful but there weren’t enough of them to cope with the numbers waiting to collect. They also spent too long on the hard sell of additional insurance, which did slow things considerably. We already had additional insurance but the staff member still tried to sell us more.

    after telling the counter staff I had excess cover and wouldn't be taking the €154 cover they were aggressive, threatening and rude. saying if there was the smallest scratch I would be charged some ridiculous charge. I agreed to the breakdown cover but did ask why I needed breakdown cover and was told I just need it. I will never use them again!

    All went very smoothly although very disappointed with the amount of time spent at collection desk, this was running at full capacity, just not enough employees to handle the volume of customers.

    The delay to pick up was shocking. I had to wait ages. And missed a dinner date with friends because of it. There was no apology when I eventually got to speak to the Centauro staff.

    The actual car was lovely and a pleasure to drive. They had a quick pick up system and drop off was in early hours (outside of office hours) so there was a key drop system and no charge for this. My excess fee was automatically returned to me once the office opened. My only issue was a fuel fee, despite having a full to full tank hire agreement. They required deposit of £51 which I was assured would be returned once the car was returned with a full tank....this has not occurred despite me having a receipt (time/date/address) from the petrol station and time stamped photos of the fuel gauge showing a full tank! Currently chasing this up with Centauro!

    The counter staff were pushy for insurance as I had it already the lady was then dismissive and failed to give me clear directions to the cars location. The car was eventually found after a lot of walking around with luggage and children. The car would not open so once I managed to find a helpful agent, they arranged a replacement. The replacement was rather tatty with slight damage on all panels, however it did run well. The return process was easy although the refund took a few days.

    Long queue to pick up (30mins) Scaremongering to upsell additional insurance which was more expensive than the rental! Because I didn't take insurance, didn't even tell me where to find the car just got given keys. Picked up during a storm and the car was missing a wiper! (known damage)

    Although I’d purchased the upgrade insurance I was slightly perplexed by the woman at the counter who seemed to suggest my insurance wasn’t for full cover. The language barrier was difficult at particular times almost to confuse me more!

    A very long wait at collection. A really long queue. We took photos when we got the car, which we were told had no damage but on return they informed us of a mark near the front bumper. Luckily we had taken the photo so we got it all signed off. I do feel that this has now become normal procedure for a lot of companies.
