When we arrived at 4 our car was booked from 12 for a week, they informed us that they had given away our car, and had no car available for us, This left us stranded at airport , they did not care, that we had no car for the week, it certainly spoiled our holiday, we could not get another car at airport, and we were staying in Viverio which is a two hour drive, i intent to put a claim into this company, their service was appalling, their service was appalling, they just said ( tough) we have no car , so go away, Never in all my years travelling have i ever been trear

The staff was very helpful and considerate. The car was excellent, a better option than what I was expecting.The fact that the full insurance for the five days cost me as much as the car itself but I accepted this because I wanted to drive as relaxed as possible, considering it was my first driving experience on the roads of Spain.

Good experience with EuropcarGreat value by reserving online ahead of time rather than walking up to the gate. Very friendly and multi-lingual clerks for the most part!The GPS we paid to rent powered up it didnt' actually connect with any satellites, so we had to navigate ourselves. It cost us a few minutes along the way. I wish they had taken the time to verify it was actually working before sending us out with the faulty unit.

We made reservations for a rental in Santiago de Compostella but the desk was closed. We sent a email about this but no response. Finally we rented another much exspensive car at Europcar. I can understand that things go wrong, we all make mistakes, but I would appreciate a respons at tielbekedevries@gmail.com

Hidden charges B.S.My plane was late and I was picking up a car 3 hours after agreed time. To my surprise I was that Hertz only keeps your car - for which you paid for - for two hours after agreed time. Apparently somewhere there is a small print saying so. I was told that my car was already rented and it was the last one in my category, and I had two choices - either wait until someone returns a car in my category and the car gets clean and becomes available for me - which could take 3, 5, 8 hours or Gods knows how long. Or my second option was to pay for an upgrade. So, given the lousy choice I had to pay for an upgrade 20 Euros.

Rolling lemon.GPSThe car motor stopped every time the car stopped - every stop sign, every time the car stopped in line. The car also had very little power, so these types of stops were multiplied. When I complained about this situation, the agents tried to pretend that all cars in Spain are that way.

Great small car for driving in Spain. Buena coche por manejar en EspañVery compact, great gas mileage. Muy chicita, cuesta menos por milla.Los sientos fueron incómodos. The seats were uncomfortable.
4.4 Okay24 Jul 2016
Not as advertised!I feel scammed by Hertz! The price at the airport was 75% more than kayak listed and confirmed by email despite declining additional features. When i returned the car there was no one to accept it despite intentionally returning it during their stated business hours. I used the key drop and receive an email adding an additional 168 eruos for "damages". I checked the car carefully before and after the rental and there was no new damage. This is the second time this has happened to me renting a car in europe through Kayak. I've rented a hundred different vehicles on four different continents over the years and I've only had a problem when I rent through Kayak in Europe.

insuranceI liked that I was able to contract an insurance through the your web page, with Jefferson insurance company, and covered in Spain with ALLIANZ. and at a reasonable rate of $ 135 for 14 days of useWhen I got to Santiago Budget informed me that with the insurance that I had, if I had an accident I would have to pay them for whatever damages and then I would have to be refunded my ALLIANZ. Obviously this was not an option, so I had to get the insurance that they provided which was far more expensive $ 415,85. I think this is very poor on behalf of budget, and the customer in your web page needs to be informed of this. We also filled the car in a gas station that was about 1 kilometer from the drop off before returning it, but was charged 21 euros for gas. Very strange.

unexpected charges"office location" and "one way" fee charges unexpected as I booked specifying clearly pickup and dropoff locations. Also, I was informed that CDW was 24 euros and total coverage 28 euros, so I took total. But later in the invoice I noticed that CDW was indeed 11 euros. That is, I was misinformed intentionally to sell me the more expensive option. Also, both, pickup (Pontevedra) and dropoff (Santiago) representatives were plain rude.

Not what we orderedThe guy at the counter was very friendly.We needed a van. We paid (through the nose) for a van. We got a wagon, albeit a nice one, that was not big enough for what we needed. We were still charged for the van.

Need a compensation from Katay.nothingKayak showed a van with 7 passenger with 3 bags rented with Budget. Actual reservation made by Kayak to Budget is a 5 passenger car + 3 bags or 7 passenger with no bag. Given that we were 7 passenger + bags we had no choice of renting a van with Europcar costing double the price of my reservation made 8 months in advance. Need a comensation.

Top tips for renting a car at Santiago de Compostela Airport

  • Although many people come to Santiago to walk and cycle the famous pilgrim’s route, car hires at Santiago de Compostela Airport (SCQ) are very popular. As well as being near Santiago itself, it is also on or near a series of major motorways that deliver you to some stunning destinations including A Coruña, Vigo and Ferrol. The landscape is incredibly varied in this part of northern Spain and offers lots of opportunity to get into nature and explore the mountains and valleys of this exciting location. To access the best of this part of Spain, a car is a great way to travel and saves so much more time and effort than if you were trying to use public transport.
  • There is one petrol station on the airport campus at Santiago and a number of others on the main approach road. If you plan to refuel your car before returning it then one of these will be ideal.
  • Returning your car to Santiago Airport is relatively easy. You’ll see signs for vehicle hire parking on approach to the airport. Follow these and find a parking bay. After you remove your personal belongings, simply return to the car hire desk and exchange paperwork and keys. Your car will receive a quick check by staff and you can depart.
  • Most of the car hire firms operate from 08:00 to 22:00, seven days a week. A number of them, such as Hertz, operate reduced hours on weekends and midweek. They finish on these days at 16:30. If you want to liaise with staff face-to-face you should arrange to collect or return your car during these hours. If you do arrive during out-of-hours there will be a drop-box for your keys.
  • Book your rental car at Santiago de Compostela Airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
