My experience was great. Although we got sent an invalid phone number to the staff immediately from our delay to share, we could call the German hotline number, which the staff then could notify. On site, the car then waited for us without complications.

Although the company does not have an office directly at the airport, we took over the car there. A very nice employee welcomed us in the arrival hall and took care of the formalities there. Together we looked closely at the car parked outside. All scratches were noted, all important details for use explained. The return was also straightforward and conveniently directly at the airport building. Perfect!

Although there was only one person in front of me at the check-in counter, the paperwork at the handover took a very long time - on the one hand because of apparently existing computer problems, on the other hand I also had the impression that the agent did much more than the exchange of calls necessary for the rental of the rental car would have. After all, no attempt was made to sell me unnecessary insurance. The car was good (almost new) and it was easy to return.

Friendly staff, quick collection and return of car. The car was clean and in good condition. I found it to be a car before going to work. With other rental companies, I was given a key and on the way back to the car. Very happy with the service, price and car.

Everything great: vehicle in good condition and fast vehicle pickup / take back. It is advisable to have the existing body damage recorded when picking up the vehicle, because I was asked at an earlier vehicle rental at Keddy / Europcar in Madeira for an existing, barely perceptible damage, which I had considered not recordable, to checkout.

Two small cars (Peugeot 208) rented with 6 people, these were fine. Europcar desk clerk (working together with Keddy) tried to get us rather pushy into larger diesel cars at an additional cost. Motivation: capacity of our cars lacks capacity on steep winding roads of Madeira. When we asked why these Peugeots are being rented out, it remained silent and the employee bound. Europcar also uses a numbering system whereby direct Europcar tenants seem to be given priority. We as Keddy tenants had to wait quite a long time while others, who later joined the line, came earlier ... strange.
