ADAC hire car test 2009: Very mixed results for car rentals on Fuerteventura

04.07.2009 - Kategorie: Hire cars

ADAC (German Automobile Association) tested different hire cars in 2009, amongst others on Fuerteventura. The results were very mixed. Twice good, three times average, twice alarming and once bad were the results in Corralejo on Fuerteventura. According to the ADAC chart (infos in German!), they tested six hire car companies in Corralejo.

This result surprises us because the probably best-known car rental of the six tested ones got the rating "bad"! The hire car company Hertz shows great deficits concerning security. Examples are a front tyre without any profile or too low air pressure in another tyre. 

All tested car rentals showed deficits in the communication with the customers. The staff explained too little or left customers in the dark.  

These sorts of problems were also experienced by our visitors who participated in the Car rental ratings on our website. But we have to say that the car rental Hertz came off far better in our ratings than in the ADAC test.
