Hi there

There are numerous good local car hire companies and we all have our favourites, two excellent companies that I have used are Anna cars, and for the last six years we have used the Best Car Hire, we are lucky to visit Crete 6/7 times each year...so that’s over 40 bookings now with them and we really wouldn’t use anyone else :-)

We use Dimitris at Autorentals who offers a fantastic service, full insurance with no excess, new/low mileage cars, no hidden extras and great value for money http://www.autorentals-crete.gr/en/index.html

Other companies that get good feedback on forum include Athens and Anna Cars.

p.s. for more feedback on Autorentals have a look at this thread https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g189…

I rented a car from Athens car hire 2 weeks ago from heraklion. They dropped it off and picked up again from my hotel. Very competitive and flexible, dare I say honest too. Flip side is the fiat panda we got had seen better days and was pretty beaten up.

That is in line with the general feedback on the forum Henrik in as much as Athens can be cheaper than Autorentals and Anna Cars but their cars although well maintained are older and this is reflected in the price.

I have being using Athens cars for several years and can say that the last three years I have rented from

https://www.athenscars.gr/1/1.html and all cars were very new with low mileage.

Not all 'their cars although well maintained are older'. I bit too broad a statement I believe.

Perhaps they should say when they give a price if the car is one of their older cars then bobo so that the customer can make an informed choice.
