Bidvest Car Rental – YEI member reviews

I’ve used the Bidvest website on many occasions to book car rental and I always get the pensioners rate. Their website is easy and user friendly.  You can initiate a booking and get the results/quote thereby getting the cost without having to commit to an actual booking. I really find Bidvest to be as good if not better than their competitors and their counter staff at the collection and drop off points are always so helpful and efficient. Thank you Bidvest for this offer to pensioners, it really makes my breakaways so much more affordable. And thanks to YEI for all you do in securing pensioners’ discounts.

It was the first time we’ve used the services of Bidvest Car Rental. I’m subscribed to You’ve Earned It and was notified through them that Bidvest offers a Pensioner’s Discount which is highly appreciated especially at this time of our lives. It was a pleasure dealing with your staff at the Phalaborwa Airport branch and we will most definitely make use of your services again. Thank you for considering the pensioners!  B. Turnbull

 

Personal recommendation from the YEI Editor

My family and I went to a wedding in Durban.  I decided to try the services of Bidvest Car Rental.  The feedback is such that everything went incredibly smoothly with the hire and the car, and I would, on a personal level, highly recommend Bidvest Car Hire.  Very friendly, efficient service.  No hitches.  No waiting.  Very professional.  Exactly the way things should be (but often are not!).

    Can this pensioner special include a vehicle from group I? My son and his family is visiting from the abroad and they are 5 in the family. We therefore need a vehicle with a 7 seat capacity.
    Tank you

    This is all very well to have designed an alluring advert but what is the point if to find out the cost of hiring a car we have to phone the car rental office. Come on Bidvest you can do better than this most irritating hand forcing manoeuvre!At least I would then know what to expect and decide to go ahead with the fore knowledge that I can afford it. You missed the boat guys.

      Dear Mr Maurel

      Just to clarify – You can click on the “Book Now” button above which takes you directly to a place on the Bidvest Car Hire website where you can put in all the necessary details and get a quote. Alternatively, if you read the Ts and Cs above, you will see that you can get quotes/reservations through the website (using the “Book Now” button mentioned above) as well as through the call centre on 086 101 7722, or via email: reservations@bidvestcarrental.co.za or any of the Bidvest Car Rental locations.

      Postscript:

      Mr Maurel very graciously sent us this response after we had sorted out his query with Bidvest Car Rental:

      Thank you for your prompt reply. It looks like I owe all and sundry an apology – obviously I did not give the advert the time and consideration I should have.

    Hi there
    thanks for your helpful newsletters. I sent an enquiry directly to the email address mentioned. Was this the correct idea?

    • Marilynh

      Morning Lynette

      Thanks for your enquiry. Sending an email enquiry is fine – don’t forget to mention you are a pensioner (we will double-check with Bidvest Car Hire). In our experience, we have found that clicking on the “Book Now” link above is very, very efficient in terms of finding out what is available and what is not, then requesting a quote, and making a booking if you are happy with the quote.

      Hope that helps.

      Kind regards
      Marilyn, YEI
