Great service, good prices and nice cars!


(Translated by Google) The girls at the Santander airport pick-up and drop-off point are very professional, friendly and diligent. The excellent and flawless car inside and out.


The rent, contract and conditions, I made it through a portal that then seems that the contracted does not coincide with what you actually collect. But I think I will repeat.


Despite the problems, satisfied. The very professional and educated employees. Just for them, possibly repeat rental with this company.



Las chicas del punto de entrega y recogida del aeropuerto de Santander muy profesionales, amables y diligentes. El coche excelente e impecable por dentro y por fuera.


El alquiler, contrato y condiciones, lo realicé por medio de un portal que luego parece que no coincide lo contratado con lo que realmente recoges. Pero creo que repetiré.


A pesar de los problemillas, satisfecho. Las empleadas muy profesionales y educadas. Solo por ellas posiblemente repita alquiler con esta compañía.


(Translated by Google) The truth, I do not understand negative opinions. The service has been impeccable. The attention from the girls at the airport has been very good, the condition of the car was very good and it was super fine. We have not had any problems when returning it nor have we had to pay any extra. It is true that we add a lot of insurance for fear of doing something to them, since I am under 25. But hey, I will certainly repeat with them.



La verdad, no entiendo las opiniones negativas. El servicio ha sido impecable. La atención por parte de las chicas de la aeropuerto ha sido muy buena, el estado del coche era muy bueno e iba super fino. No hemos tenido ningún problema a la hora de devolverlo ni hemos tenido que pagar ningún extra. Es cierto que añadimos bastantes seguros por miedo a hacerle algo, ya que soy menor de 25. Pero vaya, que sin duda repetiré con ellos.
