No problem, and personnal with rise.

(Translated by Google) The strong points: the reception of the agency in the airport, obtaining and fast return of the vehicle. Multilingual Staff (En / Fr / De / Greek). After more than 700km traveled the car had no problem.


The weak points: car ordered at the start Nissan Micra for the final Fiat Panda or otherwise the choice with a Twingo and a Volkswagen (fortunately we were only two and it was all the same). The car does not have very good reports for Cretan roads (almost often in 3rd, foot to the floor, in the ribs for a downhill pace).


The fuzzy points: the choice of all risk insurance of € 95 to be paid directly and returned at the end or otherwise the € 800 blocked by footprint that are supposed to be returned if no bp of statement. I opted for the first choice and I still have not been refunded yet no pb to the vehicle.



Les points forts : l'accueil de l'agence dans l'aéroport, obtention et retour rapide du véhicule. Personnel polyglotte (En/Fr/De/Greek). Après plus de 700km parcourus la voiture n'a eu aucun souci.


Les points faibles : voiture commandée au départ Nissan Micra pour au final une Fiat Panda ou sinon le choix avec une Twingo et une Volkswagen (heureusement nous n'étions que deux et ça convenait tout de même). La voiture n'a pas de très bons rapports pour les routes crétoises (presque souvent en 3eme, pied au plancher, dans les côtes pour une allure descente).


Les points flous : le choix de l'assurance tout risque de 95€ à payer directement et rendus à la fin ou sinon celle à 800€ de bloqués par empreinte qui sont censés être rendus si aucun pb de relevé. J'ai opté pour le premier choix et je n'ai toujours pas été remboursé pourtant aucun pb au véhicule.
