Car Hire from San Javier Airport

Does anyone have an opinion on which car hire company would be a reliable one to choose. I need 2 weeks worth of hire car in July, pick up and drop off at the airport and I have no clue which one to choose?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I have used do you spain in the past however I recently hired a car through interrent europcar, I had to pay for a full tank of fuel ( which is normal) however they charged 75 euros plus iva for a tiny hyundai which I thought was a complete rip off also they didn't tell you how much the fuel was until you returned the vehicle so please beware.

Hi arrived back yesterday, we hired a car through Jet2 who passed us onto Goldcar one of three companies seen in the airport, the other two being Centauro and Eurocar, easily found by the luggage reclaim. As read earlier followed the tip to send wife and son to collect bags while I joined the long queue for Goldcar, 55 minute wait before arriving at counter.

Had to pay for petrol up front(rip off about £70 took back with still 1/4 tank) and also taking the extra insurance(good move, some nasty driver took off my passenger side mirror while I was parked) So overall experience ok.

Hi just come back from murcia, hired a car with solmar, office a 10 min bus drive away. A pain. Centauro has an office in the airport, will try them next time.

We always use Coys Rent A Car and have found them excellent! They meet you at the airport and as most of the booking form has been done online, you're on your way in 5 minutes - no queues!! Fuel policy is very good as well - you pay for 12 euros of fuel (more if you want) and return as empty as possible. On returning to the airport, leave the car in the car park, post the keys through the partly open window and you're on your way, Simples :)

Update for anyone hiring a car at Murcia airport ! I read all the reviews about long Q`s for car hire,and the local tax you get hit with, and the rip off price they charge for fuel....but thought ...It wont happen to me !! Wrong !! I used Holiday autos, who use Goldstar at Murcia !! Nightmare !! Arrived at 11.15 on 1st July...not really a busy day,or really the busy part of the season....but stood in a Q for 50 minutes to be served !! Only two people serving,trying their best,but not really giving a dam kind of attitude !! So if you are arriving at the height of the season ......beware !!!! Kids will be climbing the wall !!! Was ready to refuse the local tax, as I had already taken out additional insurance waiver on the rental.....but as soon as he took my details, he quoted this 6euros a day charge.....and to be honest....I thought ....just do it....I want out of here !! Then he asks for my card(debit card)....and he casually mentions that the tank is full, bring it back as close to empty as you can !!! I hand over card, he hands me folded up paperwork, keys....tells me to have a good holiday......its only when I look at the paperwork later....I have been charged £109 on my debit card for local tax and rip off fuel charge !!! So from my original "all in" quote on holiday autos of £124 for a weeks hire of the cheapest available car......its actually cost £233 !!! Why the hell are they just not honest enough to tell you the real actual cost on the original booking??? So.....there are three car rental firms at Murcia.....Goldstar, had the longest Q.....Europcar, Q was half the length...(no idea about costs and taxes,etc....but at least they are reputable !! Then there was Centauro car hire....no Q....people were walking straight up and renting....but again i dony know about costs or taxes,etc....must admit I was wondering why they were not busy???? But a friend used them and said they were excellent !! Anyway my Toyota Yaris fuel lasted me all week, I stuck ten Euros in second last day, and made sure I took it back running on fumes !!!! Car was brand new.....no worries there !! Hope this helps you lucky people renting at San Javier......Good Luck !!!!
