Confused between the excess and deposit?

Over the past few days we've had a couple of customers who seem a little confused between the deposit that will be held on their payment card on arrival, and the excess on the vehicle. These 2 topics are completely separate but can sometimes come together, so it can be a little confusing. Basically,...

Re: Wanting to return out of hours at Porto?

The majority of them are based in the terminal, but not GoldCar unfortunately!

Looking to hire on your temporary license?

We had a customer the other day turn up for his hire car at Milan Malpensa Airport with their temporary US license, passport, return flight details and payment card. Unfortunately they had not informed us that the license they had, wasn't their original license, but a temporary license instead. If y...

Wanting to return out of hours at Porto?

The large majority of suppliers at Porto Airport will allow you to return a vehicle out of hours, due to them having a desk in the terminal building, however GoldCar are based off-site from the airport, a 5 minute driver from the airport. The branch are open from 07:00 - 23:00 7 days a week, but if ...

Re: Debit card and low deposit - double whammy!

Also, we can do this in France as well at Nice Airport. We've recently found a supplier there who can accept a debit card, and have a pretty low deposit of just 250-350 euros depending on the size of vehicle, even if it's a 7 seater. Usually the full excess would be blocked on a credit card, that ca...

Want to take a vehicle from Spain to Gibraltar and Portugal?

After looking for quite at a while at the many different suppliers that we have at Madrid Airport, we've finally found one who can allow you to drive into Portugal and Gibraltar, and who can also accept a debit card, so two brilliant finds in one. Taking the vehicle cross border does incur an extra ...

Re: Key drop boxes - ingenious invention

At some random locations, suppliers also charge extra for this or simply don't allow it. At airport locations this is always free of charge, but for example in Liverpool at the Avis branch, you either have to return the vehicle back to the airport on the next day it is open by 08:30, or return the v...

New Heathrow Airport T2

The newly opened Heathrow T2 is now up and running, and strange things are happening in the toilets. They've installed a system that counts how many people use each toilet, which then directs the cleaners to the toilets that need cleaning, and directs customers to the toilets that are empty. Is this...

Re: Becoming harder to cover your excess

Hi guys, We can now do excess reimbursement even if you don't live in the EU, thanks to a new insurance company, and depending on how long you want the vehicle for, this can sometimes work out cheaper than the £3.99 option. I've just arranged one for 5 days for an American customer, for just £12.00 ...
