I want to share with you my experience with Spiros and his son the owners of the Rent a Car agencies in Paleokastritsa.
The name is George Michalas - rent a car.
I viewed the prices that they published next to the Alipa port - they have a brunch over there. They indicated 22 Euros for a car per day class A.
It was cheaper than the offer I had in my hotel so I went in. I spoke with Spiros's wife who was very nice and she phoned Spiros who came shortly after.
He decided that he needs to take my girlfriend and I to the second brunch that is about 2.5 km from Alipa - next to Aris supermarket.
We set down and ask for a car for 3 days. The price went up to 115 Euros instead of 3X22 = 66. double!!
Spiros explained that it is the taxes and insurance. There is no option to lower he price with no insurance.
By law of any western country this is not allowed and ilegal.
We asked for a lower price and he asked for cash.
He then lowered the price for 105.
The returning time was 3 days + 6 H. For the extra 6 H he asked for 18 more Euros.
He than went to bring a car which had no fuel in it. No fuel means that the little light was on and i can die any second now.
I asked for the money back and refused for the kind offer for a lift back to the port area.
The interacion with this person was my only dispointment during my 1 month island hopping in Greece.
Problem is that he own what seems to be the only rent a car agency in Paleokastritsa.
I suggest to ask the hotel to order it on your behalf - I got the same deal for 80 Euros for 3 days.
