5/5 service, support. Always a reliable place to rent a cat, especially for business trips.
Thom A.
Great car rental experience. Very friendly and helpful staff when collecting. Drop off was quick and easy. No problems at all.
Thibaud L.
Great experience in general, though communication before departure and before return could be better, like a simple email with precise informations. But still, it was great, the car was perfect and the return went totally smoothly thanks to Evangelina (sorry if I misspelled !)
Kramlif A.
Rented a car at athens airport last Oct 2, and the staff was friendly and gave us a brand new car. Everything was good and even the staff at the parking was friendly enough to tell us how to drive to our first destination. I highly recommend this company.
Francis A.
All well done. The registration check-in was a bit long waiting + process but done by very pleasant personal. New parking location functional and well indicated
Henk van E.
Electric car for very fair price, Peugeot 208 for 28 EUR a day ex. VAT. Intake: go to desk at airport first and only then pick up the car. Friendly personal gives relevant instructions. Collecting the car was fast and friendly. No hidden costs , no hidden extras
Diethelm R.
Friendly service! Pick up was taking longer than expected due to high demand, hence only 4 stars. The rental car was good. The return was easy and very quick.
