Goldcar Rental, formerly known as Europa Rent A Car, was founded in 1985 in San Juan de Alicante by two brothers, Juan and Pedro Alcaraz. Between 1985 and 2011, Goldcar expanded and opened many branches throughout the Spanish mainland and islands and today is one of the leading car rental companies. In 2012, Goldcar continued their expansion into other countries in Europe.
Goldcar Rental has broadened its services by creating a new brand Rhodium Car Rental, through which they can offer their premium services.
The premium service includes priority at the Goldcar counter. This VIP service includes a separate area at the counter for Rhodium customers only and allows you to skip the queue so that your wait time is minimal. In addition, your rental paperwork is fast-tracked and will be finalised faster.
Another benefit is that Rhodium Car Rental offers two packages to suit the needs of all our customers.
- The Basic Protection package includes theft protection, unlimited mileage, mandatory taxes & fees and CDW insurance with excess responsibility.
- The Super Protection package includes all of the above and an additional insurance with reduces the excess responsibility to zero.
And for customers whose focus is on vehicle comfort, Rhodium also offers vehicles with more spacious interiors.
Rhodium Car Rental operates through 43 offices, conveniently based mostly in the airports and train stations across Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Greece and Andorra.
