After trying a couple of other rental places, none are safe and feel as secure as Elephant. They also have the best/ newest quads, bikes and buggies we could see around the Faliraki area. This is also one of the only places we found which did 24 hour rental which is really handy.

Zia provided us with a map with all tourist attractions pin pointed where you could scan on your phone and it would automatically put it in to your google maps nav.

Me and my Partner hired a 450 quad for 2 days, which we used to travel to Rhodes old town and around all the beaches between Faliraki and Rhodes town. We also used Zia’s advice and went up to the 7 Springs in the mountains! The quad was brand new and had enough speed in it, it would do about 75kmh, which is plenty for the roads around there. The quad also has a back rest for the passenger which makes it so much safer for your partner to be on. And a BIG storage area on the back for helmets, bags etc.

Secondly we hired the big Polaris RZR1000 for a day, this is more expensive than the quad but 100% worth it. So much fun, power and noise from that 1000cc engine! And a proper head turner, everyone turned to look at it when we drove past. We used this to travel down to Lindos in, noisy but so much fun! It was one of them things you didnt want to get out of.

When we return to Rhodes, Elephant will be the only company I will use.

I would like to thank Zia and Konnos for excellent customer service, and making us feel safe when hiring as I am usually a bit skeptical with some companies abroad.

Right from the start the experience dealing with Elephant Moto rental was First Class. The communication I had from the team was really clear and the prices we paid were very competitive.
We were collected and driven from our villa in Afandou to the office in Faliraki and were given brand new bikes that had less than 20km on them - the manager, Konnos made sure we knew where to go and visit on the island and we used his Google map routes to find some awesome spots down in the south.

We've now connected through social media as we share the same biking passion -this is not just any old normal bike rental place that you'll find in a holiday resort but a place and business that is managed impeccably by a team of experts.

All in all it was excellent and I will return and hire from them again.
Thank you for looking after us on Rhodes.
Have a great season guys

And you should rent it at Elephant! The people here love motorcycling, and are full of advice about what to do on the island. Just ask Konnos anything, talking about what experience to get on a motorcycle is not about his job, it's his passion.

I had a fantastic time riding in Rhodes, there is so much to explore and every path you take brings you to more breathtaking sights. I'll never forget heading out of the village of Mesanagros for the first time, the road to the monastery in Skiadi feels like it's suspended in the skies, my partner and I were speechless when we stopped to take in the view.

Elephant also managed to rescue me from my own stupidity when I got the bike stuck in the sand (don't do this, I'm an idiot). I fully expected to need a tow, but Elephant got me an Enduro champion instead! Shout-out to Spiros, who only needed a cigarette, 20 minutes, a little bit of dragging, a good bit of pushing (probably could have done without, but he had to teach me a lesson) to get me back on the road.

Cannot recommend them enough, thank you Konnos, Tasos and of course the Champion, Spiros, for everyting!

Elephant Rent A Moto are rip-off artists. When we showed up at their cruise port location, on October 11th 2021 for the car rental we made, (Type : CAR, Brand : Volkswagen Group : GROUP P Price : 85.00 €) they told me that I could not have a car because I didn't have an "international" driver's license (nothing in the Elephant rental confirmation document said it was needed). They then offered to help me get one for $300+ . On top of that, they would not refund me the $30 deposit (I have a claim in process with Mastercard). They said they called the manager and he said that they shouldn't refund the deposit.
I was furious and said that I would be writing a review on Facebook about this incident. .
We left and went next door to Port Rental where we were immediately provided with a VW bug for only 40 Euros (compared to the 85 Euros Elephant stated) and sent on our way. I told the Port Rental people what happened and they nodded, smiled and said : "they don't have a car to give you and they don't want to admit it".
I tried to post this warning/review sooner but they had shut down their Facebook page (temporarily?).

Dear Mr, We are sorry your experience did not match your expectations and for any miscommunication caused. As you can see on all other reviews, we are known as a rental company caring deeply about our customers and all our services are provided into a frame of Clients' Safety and the Greek Rental Law. Answering on the basic points of your negative review we would like to mention: 1) Till the 5th of November 2021, the Greek Rental Law did not permit the rental to drivers with a US, Canadian or Australian driving license unless it was presented together with an International Drivers Permit. The relevant issue of the Gazette (in Greek) is available to visit here: Link: https://m.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=4802719913095497&id=972572999443560&_rdr So correctly the Elephant Rent a Moto assistants, did not provide you with the rental service because it was against the rental law and the insurance would also not be valid. If any other rental company provided you with a rental service, that does not mean it was legal. 2) It costs 29$ to get an International Driver’s Permit in digital Bundle not 300$. Link: https://e-ita.org/international-drivers-license-apply-online/ 3) The price of an Electric Golf (e-Golf) 2020 model (85€ per day, which is 30% cheaper than all the other rental companies pricelist in whole Greece) is not comparable with a VW Beetle 10 years old for the price of €40. 4) Our Electric Golf was totally available, waiting outside of our rental office according to your reservation. All of our bookings are connected to our availability and booking platform automatically. 5) Our Facebook page has never been shut down (even temporarily) from day one. 6) Elephant Rent a Moto did not keep your rental deposit but it has been fully refunded to your transaction card because we did not provide you with any rental services. We apologize once more that our rental assistants could not convince or explain enough the whole facts of why we could not provide you with our services and left you with absolutely false impressions on which your review is based on and do not comply with the principles advocated by Elephant Rent a Moto. For any other questions feel free to contact me at elephant.mng@xenakisautos.gr

We hired 2 x Red automatic buggies with Exan who was very happy to help with our WhatsApp messages and calls. We were picked up on one as a free transfer from our hotel and our buggies were sat waiting for us when we got there. The paperwork only took 10 minutes and he spent time showing best places to visit. The buggies were clean and drove very well and we we dropped off the next morning and deposit was refunded within 5 minutes to our credit card and we were then taken back to the hotel. Absolutely amazing service and all with a smiley face from Exan

Kind and cooperating team working there. We rented 4 quads for 24 hours, and drove down the east-coast of Rhodes. I had trouble with my ATV drove back and changed it immediately with no further charge. We enjoyed our trip and would definitely recommend this place for renting any kinds of vehicles.

Amazing service both on the initial visit/rental and return of the vehicles. We rented a CForce 450 and Yamaha Tricity 155 for one week, During this time we visited many locations around Rhodes as well as circumnavigating the island and venturing over the highest mountians with some amazing drives through Bee country, wine roads and butterfly canyon. Not once did the vehicles cause us any concern or trouble. Venturing through the various villages and random sights throughout the island, the vehicles confortabally handled anything we threw at them.
Service from Zia and Chris was fantastic, with full instructions and guidence given before handing over the keys. It was a friendly and relaxed transaction with no pushy aditional insurances or alike. Overall one of the best experiences I have had with rental companies.

We have hired the 450 quad in Faliraki. Tasol en Mimiel where great guides. The company gives you different options for the highlights of Rhodos that you want to visit. The quads are in great condition and the crew tells you everything you need to know. Another great thing is that the deposit was back on my bank account in 2 minutes (Rabobank NL, Apple Pay).

First of all, the vehicle was new, in a high quality, and It had a big cabin to store all our baggage (we took the powerful ATV). It was a great experience to ride on it through Rhodes. The staff was professional, very kind, and helped us with a lot of tips for our traveling - thanks for Chris and Exan! Great guys!

We hired an Embuggy in Rhodes which was an amazing experience. When reserving at the rental office, we were asked what our plans were and the team took time to go through suggestions on where we should visit, what routes we should take and where we should eat etc.

The car itself is definitely the way to explore the sights of Rhodes. We look forward to hiring from them again for our next trip
