I've used Intercar twice with no problems, and others have recently recommended Mike's. They are more or less opposite one another, on the road behind the island hotel. Mike's is almost next door to Medusa tavern, Intercar is in the same building as the bar with 2 'Olympic torches' by the entrance.

most of the prices are roughly the same, expect to pay around 30/32 euros for a fiat panda to around 50e for a Suzuki 4x4, free insurance and mileage inc. leave the fuel as you found it, i.e. pick up half a tank, leave it with half a tank.

if you are going to hire one for 3 days then haggle, you will get it cheaper

your road map is the same everywhere, tourist map that is very misleading and minor roads are a nightmare.

we hired 2 cars, separate days and found Mikes marginally better, we used the one by the Pella restaurant, which by the way if you want a good meal then I would recommend it to anyone

Hi zippy,

Read post no. 1 I did on stedebben's duplicate post:

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g655745-i11898-k…

I've always hired from resort, so sorry I can't help you about airport pick-up. I know they do it though because I did ask last year.

No hidden charges, most importantly full insurance with €0 excess - make sure they write €0 in on the appropriate place on the contract - shouldn't be a problem, they did it without asking on mine.

Fuel was take it back at the same level as you took it, none of this pay for a full tank and bring back empty nonsense.

I wasn't particularly bothered by the type of car, as long as it was in good nick and had a wheel at each corner lol, but it was fine - clean, tidy, unmarked, not new but not an old banger either.

9. Re: car hire in gouves

Just got back from a 10 day vist to Crete.

A month or so before going I booked a jeep for 8 days from a company called EUROCAR (not to be confused with the closely named and good company Europcar) the car was booked and booking confirmation sent to me.

The car was not delivered at the pre arranged 9am, at 10am I rang them and was told that the car would be with me at 5pm , at 5.30pm I rang them again. I was told that they could not get me the car, but could provide me with one for 6 days at a higher price than they had confirmed with me for 8 days. After getting nowhere talking to the man in charge Myron Schinarakis he told me " tough take it or leave it" . I gave up and went to hoilday autos instead (who atleast turned up)

I notice EUROCAR advertise on this site , I advise anyone and everyone to steer a very very wide path.

I have also talked to Europcar who are now doing their own investigation into the Eurocar company due to the closeness or their names.

We looked all over the net and the one I would recommend is Intercars they are located in Gouves and I found them to be very reasonable and communications by e-mail we excellent. No problems and will certainly use them again.
