As expected, since I read the reviews here, the staff in the agency tried to sell me an upgrade (even though I booked an SUV, which appeared to be a small City-SUV Renault Captur) to a stronger vehicle and a fuel service because as the vendor said: "There is no gas station around here and I have to pay a lot more if I don't bring it back completely full". He also tried to scare me with a very high retention in case of any damage "even if I don't cause it" although this was already covered by another company, as I told him multiple times.

Not the nicest start into vacations but could be worse.

At least he went through the contract with me in detail.


By picking up the car it turned out that the car was brand new (not even 5000km done) and didn't have any larger scratches. It worked well and could also climb easily even the steepest roads we've found during our time on Madeira. To be fair: A more powerful car would be nice, but is no necessary.


The employees at the returning point were very nice and confirmed me via email that the car didn't get any new damages. So I expect and I hope that I will not hear anything from them.


So at the bottom line:

The car was appropriate and the staff nice but vendor-vice a bit immoral.


(Translated by Google) Great service and great staff. I had a problem with the car I rented and it was promptly resolved with exceptional service from two employees, Marco Santos and Marco Vasconcelos, at Madeira Airport. Excellent customer service. Although it was already night, there was no failure in the service of these employees. If it were possible to give more stars I would give. Many thanks for the service provided!



Excelente serviço e excelentes funcionários. Tive um problema com o carro que aluguei e foi prontamente resolvido com um serviço excecional da parte de dois funcionários, Marco Santos e Marco Vasconcelos, no aeroporto da Madeira. Excelente atendimento ao público. Apesar de já ser de noite não houve qualquer falha no serviço destes funcionários. Se fosse possível dar mais estrelas eu dava. Muito obrigado pelo serviço prestado!
