Once again I am sorry to say that I have to have a go at Europcar.

 

Having spent a week in Madeira over the New Year period I called into their Funchal Office on the Estrada Monumental and enquired how much they would charge me for a car in the smallest Mini class.

 

After I bit of thumping around on the computer I was told that this would be Euros 118.00 for the two days which I thought was rather expensive.

 

I left it and went back to my hotel which was literally next door and logged onto the Internet with my Nexus Tablet and the result which came back from Rentalcars.com was Euros 57.00 , virtually half price.

At this stage, if you book with one of the hire car search engine they don’t tell you the Car Hire Provider but they show you a little map of their location which was the same as Europcar.

 

I consequently booked it and paid for it online and when the confirmation arrived by email it shown that it was indeed Europcar who had just quoted me 118.00 Euros.

 

The next day I collected the car without any problems.

 

The moral of the story is quite simple – Don’t accept any quote they give you when you walk into these car hire places; just get a price and go back to your hotel or an Internet cafe and book it online.

 

 

 

 

I guarantee it’s a lot cheaper

 

What I saved paid for a lunchtime meal  and all the petrol I used.

 

 

My recommendation

 

 

 

 

Book it online and save yourself over 50 %
