We hired a Nissan Note for two adults and one 12 Yr old. The car was perfect for what we needed. It was an automatic so simple to drive, and light on fuel.

The car was delivered by Simon who went through the paper work smoothly and quickly.
All our questions were answered honestly and without hesitation. The drop of at our hotel was on time and the pick up , we left the keys at the hotel reception as agreed and all went very smoothly.

Simon made sure that we were familiar with the car controls and explained the insurance details clearly. And the type of fuel explained.

The car was imaculate inside with no dents or damage on the outside.

Paying was easy, To start nothing was hidden no hidden charges or security deposits and no card holding.

I have hired before in Cyprus and wish I had known of Simila.

My first experience was driving towards the gate at Enterprise to discover the clutch was shot, the second car had no speedo and would not lock , the third car had no spare tyre. We were assured on booking that we had paid for everything only to be told they needed a £1500 card hold before we got the keys.

I cannot recommend Simon and Simila enough , friendly honest and straight forward. Simon even gave us discount for various excursions and good sound advice on various cons others use.

Thanks team Simila we will be back soon

Thanks Alistair and Laura

We booked in advance to avoid disappointment as its peak season
Very quick and easy transaction
Low deposit and balance in cash on collection of the car which was dropped off and picked up on the time agreed at our hotel
I highly recommend Simila for a no faff, no fuss seamless service
No extortionate holding deposit either. What you see is what you pay.
This is a good, honest family run business and I will definitely use again in the future

This is the second time we have used Simila for our car hire.
We were met at Paphos Airport by Simon who was waiting for us to arrive.
Communication was great during the collection of the Vehicle through WhatsApp so we knew where to wait for him to drop the car off.

Simon offers great advice and gave us directions on how to exit the airport and where we needed to go to get to our hotel.

There is no big deposit required with Simila Cars or pressure to take out extra expensive Insurance that isn't really needed

We would highly recommend and wont hesitate to use again when we are next in Cyprus

Thank you

Simila make car hire in Cyprus easy and hassle free. Everything fully explained prior to the hire, no hidden costs and a good insurance package included. The car was perfect for our needs (7 seater) with fully working air conditioning, essential for Cyprus in high season. In addition, the money off vouchers included saved us over 70 euros alone and included the zoo, cruise and wine tasting.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Paphos and hired a car from Simila car hire.
We chose Simila this time based on other reviews we had read.
We had excellent service from start to finish, and at a reasonable price.
All correspondence was up to the minute when contacting them on WhatsApp, as soon as we came through baggage claim and walked outside we were met by Simon with our hire car.
We paid cash at the airport to save processing time and card fee’s.
All of the paperwork was explained and sorted on minutes and after a few tips on places to see we were on our way.
Simon even gave recommendations to various places where could get discounted prices just by mentioning Simila car hire, particularly we received -15% off Latchi speed boat hire which we had pre planned to book anyway.

The whole car hire experience was so simple and a lot less stressful the the main stream companies in the airport which I have used previously, and no hard sell with the excess insurance either.

In summary, try it !

Having hire cars in Cyprus on a number of previous occasions our experience had not been a good one.
We hired a Toyota Aygo for 3 days at short notice from Simila Cyprus. The car was delivered to our hotel on time as promised. The car was immaculate inside and out and following the user demonstration, Simon provided us with maps and suggested tour routes and eateries. The link to the Cyprus Maps.me satnav app was terrific and worked a treat. (As good as Tom Tom). Car ran faultlessly and the hire cost very competitive, even against the economy end of the car hire market but the customer service, quality, time and attention was as good as it gets. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We would highly recommend to anyone and we will use Simila Cyprus again.

Saw the reviews and decided to go with Similar and was GLAD We did. Sent Simon a text on a Saturday evening, expecting to get response on Monday. To my joy I had a reply in 10 minutes!! What a lovely no fuss operation, we agreed a price (great price too) for 2 weeks rental of a Ford Focus type vehicle and when we arrived we where given a BIG Mazda 2 Litre Automatic, with automatic rear door and shed load of boot space, as a free upgrade. The car was spot on and great on the roads round Paphos and further afield (Troodos, Polis, Latchi ) On the Day we picked up the car Simon went through some “hidden gems” for us to try and even provided an electronic route for us to download which was great even though we thought we new the area well (nice touch!)

Had a great 2 weeks out an about around the Paphos area and some REALLY great days out a little further out.

Highly recommend this no fuss, friendly team!! Brilliant from start to finish 👍👍👍👍

Excellent company, car and people. A fantastic hassle free experience and would definitely use again and recommend to anyone. We initially booked the first week before we got to Cyprus but once we were there enjoying the use of the car and realised how easy the roads were we extended for the second week. Similar easily extended this for us via WhatsApp. The communication was amazing. They dropped off the car to our hotel and picked it up. Everything was on time. No hold was taken on our credit card and only a small deposit was taken before we arrived and cash was paid on drop off.
They even provided us with maps of the local area and discount codes for activities which really saved us money on boat trips.

We rented a small Nissan from Simon for 5 days in Cyprus. Right from the beginning, Simon provided great advice on.places to vist snd those to avoid. He even provided some route maps to follow for day trips which we did.
The car we had was valeted upon collection with half a tank of petrol which we replicated when returning the car.
Other car rentals screw you on price & hidden costs but with Simila everything is transparent. Overall, we were really pleased with the friendly service provided by Simon. Simila cars were recommended to us and we were not disappointed. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again & recommend them highly.

This was the third time I have hired a car from Simon. I keep returning because Simila continues to be honest, reliable and always helpful. Their prices are very good and I have never had a problem with the car. They don't tie you up in knots with paperwork and insurance bonds. I understand that for people coming from the UK and EU Simila's insurance provides good coverage. I'm Australian, and that just means I make sure that car rental excess is well covered by my travel insurance. Also, it's not some painful and impersonal online booking process. You communicate directly with the owners. They streamline their service - picking you up and collecting the car right at the airport (so no long hike dragging your baggage with you to a rental office).
