I'm normally very suspicious of car rental companies trying to scan me, but with Pentaras I felt relaxed from the moment I met their guy at Paphos Airport. I paid up front and was handed the keys. There was no deposit of credit card details and they didn't need a copy of my passport, they just took my hotel and licence details and I was on my way. I even extended my holiday by 2 days so I needed the car for longer and this was done with a simple phone text and then I paid the difference when I returned the car. I only wish all car rental companies were like Pentaras, their attitude added to the enjoyment of my holiday.

I've rented a lot of cars in lots of "premium" car rental companies, mostly because of peace of mind.

This time I decided to do things differently and chose a small family based car rental company, that advertised "no hidden fees".

I'll be a repeat customer for sure. These guys go the extra mile for their customers. You get peace of mind because Michalis and Jack have lots of common sense and you know they'll do their best for you, in order to reach a fair deal.

I had a flat tire and in less than 10 minutes Michalis was there, putting the spare. The next day they switched the tire under 15 minutes.

I paid a fair price for what I got. It was a great deal for both parties and it was the first time I got that feeling when dealing with car rental companies.

Booked a 4x4 Subaru online from UK via email. All communications were prompt and picking the car up from the rental shop was very simple and straight forward. No hidden charges, very up front about damage deposits (which are not excessive) overall made hiring a car simple and easy. I would recommend to Pentaras Rentals to anyone visiting Cyprus who wants to get out and about to explore some of the beautiful mountain villages, or other coastal spots. If a return visit Cyprus happened, I would definitely use their car hire services again.

Michael at shop1 is a top man. Always manages a smile and delivers precisely what he says he will. No sneaky extras on arrival or scary charges on return. Overall his prices are way better than with some of the big boys and you never have that holidaying-ruining feeling of being ripped off.

I have used this hire Company a few times now when visiting Paphos, this year I emailed in advance to Michael and arranged both the right and the higher dates and the car all in advance of arrival. We had a fabulous rate for a Suzuki chimney which was perfect for exploring. The car was clean and came with enough petrol to see us through the first couple of days before we had to refill. Car was ready At 9:30 am which was the agreed pickup time and when we had finished we just left the keys with our hotel reception and the team came and collected it. The right that we were quoted was what we paid there were no hidden extras or heavy sales pitch for additional add-ons. I cannot recommend this car rental company enough. Testament to their great service is the fact that many years after I first use them they are still going

Don't rent scooters here. Even when we are staying in their accommodation and we got promised a good price, price here (45Euro for 125 cc scooter for one day) is 2* higher than other rental places in Pafos ( I found other places for 19euro). Check prices online first, and you will find other places that cost just half. I am very sad I trusted the owner.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us yet another review, (yes we have read your google one), under normal circumstances we do not normally respond to reviews, as we like to think our service speaks for itself. However, when a review is left which is completely inaccurate and misleading for our future customers to read, it is deemed necessary. You actually hired a Piaggio Carnaby which is a 300cc scooter NOT a 125cc like you have stated. We charge 60 euro for a 24 hour hire on our price list for a 300cc and you were given a discount and paid 40 Euro. Also, just to clarify you inaccuracies, our 125cc is 25 euro for a 24 hour hire. When you hired the scooter, if you remember you hired a larger engine a 300cc as you wanted to travel beyond our 15km limit. It is always disheartening when customers are asked was everything ok and we are told yes to our faces, but then choose to go on the internet and write a negative review, and we mustn't forget you also spoke to the owner two days after your rental, to confirm your free transfer to the airport, and once again no comments were made by yourself. For future reference, maybe you should inform the company you are dealing with of any problems or queries you may have at the time, as in this case had you mentioned the above that you thought you had hired a smaller engine scooter to us we would have instantly explained your error.

OK, we shouldnt have accepted it. It looked raggedy, but was mechanically unsafe. All locks looked like they had been jimmied, the gear box was shot and the accelerator didnt bite until it jumped. The engine was so crap that we were told to return it for an oil top up if we drove it a lot. Used Pentaras as good reviews - big mistake

Book early as several people who dropped in when I was there didn't get a hire as nothing was available at short notice, 2-3 days. I didn't have my UK license but he sorted it all out for me using my national insurance number.
I got a Citroen C4 for 3 days (€110) plus a €350 deposit which he'd return to my account at the end of the hotel. I've just returned the car and will check my bank account shortly.
Having been burned in Spain I took lots of pictures but he was so relaxed and said he didn't need to do that ... but if it made me feel better. I took pics of odometer and fuel level but again he didn't even check that I'd refilled it as required, I had. It was unlimited mileage but we didn't do that many.
Recommend going to agios georgios. Take swimming gear. There's a wee cafe on the beach that does basics but take water etc in case it's closed.
Also recommend Atlantida Fish Tavern. Google it, it's lovely.
Strongly recommend hiring from this car hire company. It was an unexpected pleasure and nothing like the Spanish ones.

We found Pentaras after trying several other car hire offices who were unhelpful to say the least . Ok ... it was a bank holiday but other offices just seemed to have a can't be bothered attitude.
Kerry at Pentaras Shop 2 was a breath of fresh air , literally in 5 mins had our perfect car {VW Tiguan} sorted and within 10 mins it was outside all ready for us !. She explained everything clearly and simply and gave us some great tips on places to go .
Easy , efficient and good value too , so all the things you want when hiring a car .
We'll be back !!!.

We hired a large family car for our party (4 adults and a toddler) for 3 days. The service was excellent at Pentaras rentals shop 2 which was near our hotel. We will definitely rent again from them when we’re next in Cyprus.

The price was very reasonable, we weren’t expected to fill the tank up to return the car, and the car was collected from our hotel which was very handy.
