Avoid using Goldcar at Alicante airport. at all costs I have been totally scammed this week for fake damage to a vehicle I hired from them for 3 nights over Christmas.. a) this damage (shown on the pictures they sent to me), was not on the car when I picked it up or dropped it back and yet they have taken over £500 from my Visa card and I feel that I don’t have a leg to stand on. The worst thing is that when I returned the car and asked the man to come and check it, he said he would do it later and that I should just give him the key. He also asked if I had filled up the petrol (which I said I had done). Stupidly I did as he asked and went to the departure terminal in the airport. I was horrified to find two days later that I had been charged £534 for damage (to 3 areas of the car)…which is complete rubbish. Other than for the airport transfer to my relatives house one hour away, the car had not been used and was kept safely on their drive, behind locked gates. There was no way the car had been damaged by me or anyone else during this time. I have read so many similar reviews about Goldcar. Why on earth are they even still allowed to trade. I have also read that the people that work for them are paid commission for finding damage to cars. From the pictures they sent to me I am convinced these scratches could have been drawn on to the car…as they are similar lines on both sides….ridiculous! I would appreciate any advice from anyone who has found a way out of this situation as I know I am far from the only one?
