What is the best car hire company from Murcia airport?

I've read many conflicting reviews so just want some ideas of car hire names to look into where I can get good value. Just looking for a cheap, cheerful car and service with no dodgy hidden extras!!!

Hi emjharts,

That's a judgement only you can make based on your requirements.

If you've not already done so, have a read of this forum thread on the topic: tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g736856-i12756-k…

There's plenty of excellent advice in that thread.

Just do as much as possible to protect yourself.

Make sure you've read the firm's T&Cs, specifically fuel policy, 'top-up' insurance, additional drivers, whether just 'blocking' or actually taking funds from your cc.

Inspect the car thoroughly.

Note every scratch, chip, dink, dent on the rental form.

Check that everything that should be in or on the vehicle (that includes aerials, manuals, hub-caps/wheel covers, etc) is present. If not, point it out to the rental company staff and note it on the rental form.

Take lots of photos and/or video of the vehicle on collection.

Take lots of photos and/or video of the vehicle on return.

Consider the time of day you are due to land at Murcia San Javier and if you're travelling in a peak holiday period. You could have a longish wait in a queue for service.

Don't be afraid to request a different company if you book through a screen-scraper/broker website and it turns out to be one you'd rather not deal with.

If something sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Good luck and remember to come back and add to the knowledge base with how you got on.

Cheers!

DD
