- Alicante car hire
We booked with doyouspain a few weeks ago and was given a car through sol-mar it was very cheap but the car was awful – booked as an ibiza or similar, got a chevrolet aveo with 95k on the clock, every panel was damaged it misfired at 3k rpm when the engine was hot and it had a horrible wobble at 100kmh.Posted 4 years ago
Friends we went with also used doyouspain but their car came from gold car and was a brand new toyota yaris with less than 5k on it for about £25 more over the 10 days.
Holidaying in Altea in August and we have been to the area a few times for family holidays and hired cars before we left and picked them up at the airport.
Really just wanted a hire car company that the hive mind could recommend above the rest?
We have used a different one on 3 occasions over the last few years with pros and cons for each, just wondered if anyone had used one they think stood out?
Many thanksPosted 4 years agopiemonsterMember
Used GoldCar a month or so ago, car looked like it had been used down the fair on the dodgems. Never really encountered a hire car company that I’d go so far to recommend to be honest.
Cheap enough Gold Car, I liked the sales pitch on the insurance. “Take the insurance and you can do what you like to the car”Posted 4 years agoDougDMember
Got family out there and my parents have used solmar before without a hitch, Mike’s experience doesn’t seem great though and definitely not what you want when you arrive.
Also for when you’re there, Altea has got a bike rental scheme like the Boris Bikes, 3 EUR for a day or 10 for a week, loads of bike stations from Albir through Altea, then up past Cap Negret, l’Olla and Altea La Vella. Used them to get about when I was out there in May and they were great.Posted 4 years agonorthernmattMember
We flew into Murcia a couple of weeks back. I’d booked with Centauro via economycarhire.com
Got given a Fiesta 1.25 with 16k km on it and asked to pay for a full tank up front. Not too bad as the whole cost for 9 days with a kiddy seat but not including petrol was about £160. Fuel charge was obviously made up as it was about £60 for a full tank.Posted 4 years ago

Thanks Dougd I’ll look into that when we are there!Posted 4 years ago
