I would warn all travelers to Spain to avoid the car rental agency Pepe Car. I have had a humilliating and very expensive experience with PepeCar. Simply put, they are scam artists. The webpages seems efficient, but they don’t reveal real prices there, and the “small print” is on some other page. I rented with PepeCar, which turned out to be distributed by GoldCar (I therefore hold Goldcar responsible as well for associating with such an unethical company).
1) The apparent 20 € / day turned out to be substantially more with all the surprise extras, and then in order to pick up the vehicle at the GoldCar desk, I was forced to pay more than 240 € more for things like a different insurance policy, especially because I was unable to/unwilling to put a lock on a 1400 € deposit.
2) There was also a fee for gas, which was certainly not at cost–they shave off money for themselves with that too. I was also charged 150 € to leave the car at another airport. And though this is normal with rental car companies, but I arrived to that desk unaware that I would have to pay roughly 3.5 times the amount I had planned on paying. None of these costs are communicated well, since my complaints are mirrored in many other traveler’s descriptions of their own debacles.
3) When complaining, the man at the GoldCar desk in Granada said something like “well at this point it would be just as expensive in any other company …” Of course it would, and that’s the scam. You are now captive: pay up or no car.
At no time have I been able to find a detailed invoice with these costs in the emails I received before confirming the purchase. I thought I was going to pay 166€. Indignant, from the phlegmatic deskman I got the number of CarTrawler, which controls GoldCar or works for them, based in England. I could complain there he said. Well, they did little more than take more than a week and a half to respond very kindly, with cut and pasted paragraphs that they could do nothing. And at this point of course no one takes responsibility or has the power to do anything. They hope my anger becomes muffled in the bureaucracy. But it doesn’t of course.BOICOT PepeCar: it is not professional, as they do not have the courage or integrity to clearly report costs up front. BOICOT companies that work with PepeCar. These scam schemes prefer to hide behind some half-hidden “disclaimer” and then charge you in person when you pick up the cars and when you no longer have any choice since renting anything anywhere on the spot will cost you dearly. They know a lawyer will cost you more money and years of time, so they continue ripping us all off.
