    Top class
    I hired this Nissan note automatic car for me and my partner to help us travel around for our holiday sight seeing. From start to finish the service was great as handed over all money on the day of arrival which was great! from when the driver Simon picked us up from the airport and happily drove us to our hotel. Simon was very helpful with information and discounts on places to visit etc and the country itself as never been to Cyprus. sent me the company chat link, if I needed any help, To agreeing a time to drop off the car in a different town. Top class service!

    Reliable, friendly and convenient.
    We booked and paid in advance with all communication simple to transact. Similia delivered and collected direct from our hotel which saved us time and was very convenient. The Suzuki Swift was a great car, reliable and excellent AC. Ludmila and Simon were lovely and very friendly. Would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of supporting a small local business. Thank you.

    From start to finish the car rental was fantastic, no unnecessary messing about. Simon dropped the car at our hotel, the same on collection. I have never been given as much information about different places to visit as I have from Simila. We got discount on boat hire in latchi, there is lots of other discounts too. Our named driver decided to do half day golfing, it was no hassle at all to add another driver within minutes. I can’t recommend this company enough, they are brilliant. ⭐️

    reliable drop off and a very clean car
    Just handed back our trusty Nissan Note to Simila car rentals after a week of driving around the Troodos mountains and beaches around Paphos. the car was very clean when it was dropped off at our hotel and very much more dusty when we dropped it off again this evening. nice, reliable car, good aircon and fine to drive around the island. Thanks Simon and Julia

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

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

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.

I personally don't have a credit card or like the idea of 1000 to 1500 deposit being held against me whilst trying to enjoy myself on holiday abroad, so was advised to try local car hire companies in the area instead of the well known hire companies. Came across simila which was 5 star recommended. I had left car hire waaaay late (the day before flying) and managed to call him through WhatsApp and explain my situation. He had us sorted with a car within a few hours. Website was easy to use. Had a problem with the deposit bank rejected sending the money to Cyprus but this wasn't an issue either as was able to just pay deposit with hire when we arrived with cash. We sent a message when we landed (we were 30 minutes early) and by the time we made it out of arrivals we only waited 5 mins for Simon to arrive with the car. Simon is an absolute gentleman help us with our bags, quickly ran through the car and documents and we were on our way. Car served its purpose well over the week as we stayed in a villa so was handy to go shopping/out an about. Drop off was as easy as pick up. Just a message for drop off time and we were met in the exact same spot we picked the car up from when we arrive. Nice and easy hassle free service. Full insurance and booster seat were included in hire. No hidden costs or deposits. Thanks again Simon and simila car hire. Would 100% recommend and use again 👍

Booked with Simila and dealt with Simon throughout. Great guy, met us right outside the terminal at Paphos Airport and the same when we we dropped off. Booked a Citroen Grand Picasso to cater for golf clubs and luggage and it served its purpose really well. Thoroughly recommend booking with these people for car rental in Cyprus and we will definitely be using them again when we return. Thanks again Simon.

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

Easy booking in a day, you pay only the renting cost (no additional funds required or asked), no additional charges for fuel required, pick up to and from the airport (flexible via texting to the owner the evening before our departure), helpful tips for our short stay. All in all the best car rental agency ever experienced. Highly recommended. Well done Simon!

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 !

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 👍👍👍👍

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.
