“Excellent company. Easy to book. Great prices. Met at airport with a spotless/almost new car. No need to queue, no need to leave a large deposit. On our return we were met by the same friendly gentleman; just handed over the keys and straight into the departures area. Full-Full fuel policy, so we refilled the car just down the road from the airport. Will definitely be using regularly and recommending to others in our group.“

“Excellent company. Forget searching for the cheapest car hire. They never are what with hidden charges, insurance and deposits. Flamenca cars offer good cars at a guaranteed price. You are met in the arrival lounge, escorted to your car and you’re away in minutes. Just as simple on the return trip. Highly recommended“

“This was our first time using flamenca cars. The whole process was straight forward and very easy from booking, to collecting the car and then returning it. All of the paperwork was clear and easy to understand. The car was clean and in excellent condition. During our stay we had a delay to our flight, the Flamenca cars representative was very accommodating in allowing us to amend our drop off day and time at very short notice. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again the next time.“

Beth reviewed Flamenca Cars
“Cannot speak highly enough of this car hire company. The service we received was second to none. Excellent customer service that helped with every aspect of our hire car requirements even down to helping with my specifications for car seats for my 2 children. So so helpful. Get back to you straight away with any questions. Everything included in the price so no concerns about being ripped off with insurance excesses that other companies charge. We had a few flight time changes and it was no issue. We will definitely use Flamenca Cars again and will recommend to others.“

“Very impressed, first time hired a car abroad and I thought it would take ages doing paperwork and the car would be basic. Really happy how friendly your staff where and how easy it was to pick up the car, get the keys and off you go. The car was well above the standard we were expecting (and the Sat Nav helped a lot). We will be coming out quite regularly now, so will friends and family and this is the only company we will recommend. Cheers.“

This company is FANTASTIC having read some of the dreadful reviews of the other companies at Corvera airport I cancelled a booking I had made and trusted the positive reviews that Flamenca cars had. It cost more than the previous booking but my goodness it was worth it. Apart from tyres all insurance is included in the price, no add ons at the airport. Flamenca representative was waiting and we were out of the airport 5 minutes later in our SEAT car, all was well until the last day of our visit… Read Full Review

what a breath of fresh air... Having young children, we always prepare ourselves for the nightmare of collecting hire cars at Alicante, we couldn’t have asked for a better service with Flamenca Cars. The price we were quoted was the actual price, inclusive of insurance and child seat. Such a change from the usual hidden extras. No messing about when we arrived, contacted the number at baggage claim and the car was waiting for us. Exactly the same high standard of service when we… Read Full Review
