Car hire ...best company on the Island ..add your score

After reading neumerous car hire questions and reviews its about time that good ones are judged fairly ,and the not so good ones named and shamed .

Keep it simple not long winded horror stories please...just a number

On a scale 1-10 lets rate them . Company name then your score .

1-2 ...poor and never again .overcharging on fuel and Insurance..bad cars

3-4 ...average. delays, poor quality cars and no on site pickup

5-6 ...good ,reasonable cars with airport pickup

7-8 ...very good with new cars with airport pickup

9-10 .Ex with great service and new cars with airport pickup

When we go to the canaries we always get a car from Payless, they are very reasonable and you don't have to pay by credit or debit card, just good old fashioned cash. I would give them 9/10 also.

Just booked with CICAR. Great price and had a roof rack option for my surfboards. I'll let you know how it goes.

Payless - 80 euros for a week for their cheapest group - all-in - no excess. 10/10.

Posh Cars 1-2

Went to "Posh Cars" on advice of an expat. Glossy leaflet, which amongst bullet points, stated "Brand New Cars."

The owner was very polite and friendly and we booked a Opel Corsa, insurance all inclusive for 2 days for a total of €75.

Young man came to apartment on morning of rental and we completed contract. Invited me to have a look around car as he left, and there did not appear to be any major damage, so the lad walked off.

When I looked closer at the car and subsequently drove it, my observations were as follows. NB. I have photographic proof of the following.

1. The car was a Citroen C3 which was registered with Posh Cars in 01/06/2007, so was nearly 6 years old.

2. The mileage was just over 105,000kms

3. The gear box was problematic when, for example changing from 5th to 3rd.

4. There were roof rails fitted, which were rusty to the point that one of the struts was loose and vibrated during normal driving when the breeze got up.

5. The suspension was dire! Every little bump seemed like a pot hole.

6. The inside edges of both front tyres were bordering on legal - as there was obviously an issue with regards to tracking.

7. Although very minor, the doors all creaked when opening and shutting and steering wheel trim was actually wearing out.

Be warned

I always book with cicar and have the roof rack for my boards as well don't expect a brand new car though as they know if you're having a roof rack you're possibly going to be going off the beaten track (not that I would mind you !)hehe

Hello,

Maybe it's not exactly the right forum but I think that somebody could help me here.

I'm having a holiday in Fuerteventura on 18th of May for a week.

Now I'm looking for a car hire company who could rent a car for me.

I know there are many Car hire companies in Fuertoventura, but most of it don't allow to drive them cars to non asphalted roads.

During the holiday we want to visit COFETE beautiful beach and as I saw from the GoogleView there is a gravel roads down there.

So thats why I'm asking for your help to find any car hire company who let us drive there.

Maybe, could you suggest for me any car hire company who allow to drive to non asphalted roads?
