It comes as no surprise to anybody who knows them or have used their services, but Al Andalus Car Hire has been going from strength to strength over the last few years, so much so they are about to celebrate their 4,000th booking.
For one lucky person, the one who is that 4,000th, you will get a week’s car hire for free in celebration, although with such competitively priced hire services, everybody is already a winner.
As a supporter of the N332 project from day 1, we know all too well of owner David Baxter´s commitment. Whenever we are involved in one of our charity campaigns, it is guaranteed that David pulls out all the stops to make sure he is there supporting us in any way that he and his team can.
David started Al Andalus Car Hire in 2010 with the intention of providing a service to a number of urbanisations in the local area. However very early on one client gave such a great review on www.eyeonspain.com, the result was a rapid expansion of the business.
They are based in Vera, Almeria, but operate from all of the popular airports across Almeria, Murcia and Alicante, as well as their local area. At Alicante-Elche and Murcia-San Javier airports they work with Seguro Parking who meet the clients just outside the terminal building with their car, so there is no running around and queuing for hours on end just to find out where to pick up a car.
All the paperwork is done before the clients arrive, so that too means less time at the airport when you get off the plane and typically you will be on your way to your holiday within 10 minutes of collecting your luggage. All vehicles set off with a full fuel tank, they ask that you return it full too, so there is no excessive premiums to pay for filling the car and the hire includes one main and one additional driver, so you can share the holiday drive experience. Plus, they don´t take large deposits on credit cards like some other companies and are happy to accept standalone excess waiver policies.
As for the vehicles, the fleet is made up of quality, reliable vehicles, such as Seat Ibizas, Skoda Fabias and Dacia Sanderos, but they also have Ford Focus size cars and the 7-seater Opel Zafiras. Make sure you take a look at their website for more information but when you do keep one thing in mind.
Although they will never beat the headline prices offered by the large car hire companies, the difference is that the price they quote is the price you pay, there are no hidden extras or supplements. Make the comparison with that in mind and the final price offered by other companies and you will soon see where to find value for your money, Al Andalus Car Hire.
The entire team are very friendly and approachable, and their level of service is impeccable with all emails usually answered the same day, but always within 24 hours, and everyone is personal, not a computer generated automatic reply. By the way, they can also provide baby, child and booster seats at a small additional cost. They can also accommodate collection and delivery at different airports subject to a one way drop off fee, and of course availability.
You don´t have to take our word for it though, have a read of some of the genuine comments they have had from their clients so far.
Just a quick message to say thank you for arranging the car hire for us. The car was fab and we met Dave in Vera Playa on Monday to settle up with him. Everything really good and the guys were there at Murcia to return the car. Thanks very much – take care and we will certainly use you again when next in Spain. (Julie S)
Just wanted to say what a joy the car hire was. It was true how quick and easy picking up the car was with no queuing, not having to get all documents out and most of all getting out of the airport and on our way to the apartment also, no hidden extras!!!! We would DEFINENTLY use your service again. (Dorothy R)
I just wanted to say what excellent service we received from your company when hiring the hire car in Alicante recently. The pick up and drop off couldn’t have been easier or smoother and was such a treat! The car was great, and dealing with you has been a pleasure. We will certainly be contacting you again for next year and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. (Debbie O)
Just a quick message to say thank you very much for the car hire & information. The collection & drop off of the car was excellent, also meet Dave who was very helpful If we return to that area we will certainly use you again (Philip C)
I would just like to say how delighted we were with the car hire arrangements. It was wonderful to be able to drive away within minutes of landing and with no paperwork to complete. The return was even easier with Seguro Parking waving us down as we arrived at the airport. We will certainly be using you again on our next visit! Well done for a super service! (Allan S)
