The history of Goldcar Rental goes back to 1985 when two brothers Juan and Pedro Alcaraz founded small car hire business in San Juan de Alicante. Initially they offered for rent only five Fords. In 1988 they gave the name Europa Rent a Car to their company and continued to expand their business activity. The growth was steady, every year Europa Rent a Car replenished the fleet of cars and added new important locations to the list of existing offices. In 2006 the company changed its name to Goldcar.
For several decades the car rental company accumulated valuable experience, gained reputation and recognition among partners and clients and currently it is considered to be one of the leaders of car hire in Spain and the largest vehicle rental agency in the Mediterranean area.
Today Goldcar Rental is proud to be car hire number one in such popular among holiday-makers places as Alicante, Majorca and Malaga. Today the company offers its services at 34 offices located in major airports and principal tourist destinations of the Iberian Peninsula, Balearic Islands and Canary Islands.
The impressive fleet of Goldcar consists of more than 20,000 cars of diverse categories – from economy, compact and family cars to convertibles and luxury vehicles. More than 70% of the cars are renewed every year because providing utmost safety and comfort to the clients is the main mission of Goldcar Rental. Highly professional multilingual staff, reasonable pricing, excellent reviews, wide choice of cars – all these aspects combined explain impressive numbers – in average more than 1.5 million travellers from all over the world use the services of Goldcar every year and this figure continues to grow.
Recent opening of Goldcar Rental offices in Portugal (near Oporto airport) and Italy (in the airports of Pisa and Bologna) shows that the company is determined to continue its expansion and to strengthen its position on the highly competitive car hire market of the region.
