Gold Car Hire

Hi,

Has anyone else experienced a problem with Gold Car hire at Valencia airport?

I have been severely overcharged by Gold Car but cannot get any refund from them.

If you search for Goldcar on the Spain forum (or any city with a Goldcar office) you will see hundreds of people have had problems with them.

same experience - Online price £130 turned into £260 when the car was collected. Extra 75 for licence being issued 2 years ago, extra 35 for diesel, extra 20 airport charge. When I argued that all of these were hidden charges I was ashamed for not reading terms and conditions.

Just google Goldcar scams and there are literally thousands of complaints about this disreputable company.

It is how they do business .

They draw people in with low upfront prices and then add huge extras such as insurance . anybody who doesn`t take their overpriced insurance will almost certainly get charged for damage that will be " found " when the vehicle is returned .

The staff are paid commission based on how much they can screw out of clients .

Oh dear - the trick is to check first (search tripadvisor) and book afterwards.
