We were recommended elephant by friends and have now rented from them on our last four trips to Cyprus. The cars, though not the latest, are clean and reliable and the cost and level of insurance cover, with no hidden extras, represent excellent value. We recommend this company with no hesitation (read more)

Hired October 2012. Good service booking car and rep was waiting in arrivals. Very rushed processing our documents as there were 2 other clients waiting. The vehicle was as requested, but it had virtually bald tyres and 1 windscreen wiper was U shaped, so thank God it did not rain while we were in Cyprus. Driving away from the airport the car pulled to the left and it soon became evident the car had a slow puncture in the front left tyre. On my return home I checked the credit card voucher...

Car(Honda Jazz) was clean and reliable, air con worked well and although car not brand new it was ideal for what we needed it for-boot big enough for family of five-1 case and 4x large holdalls. Hand luggage ok on knees in car. Family business- very well ran and fair price, because of this very popular. Great that everything was covered in price so no hard sell of extra insurance etc when you arrive at airport. Although no one was in arrivals to meet us I called contact number and... (read more)

After a terrible experience with Avis Cyprus last year (see our earlier review), we found this company through a villa owner. We received an absolutely excellent service. We contacted the company by e-mail and received confirmation of our booking within a day or two. They didn't require payment in advance either. As we came out of departures at Paphos airport we were met by an employee holding a card with our name on it. The handover took less than 10 minutes. We had booked a Nissan... (read more)

We used Elephant car hire paphos this July and have no complaints. We booked 2 cars as we were two family groups and the initial booking service was fantastic with excellent communication. I emailed them 2 days before we were due to fly for added confirmation which got a quick response. We were delayed 5.5 hours so arrived at 2230 instead of 1600, however the representative was there waiting for us with a sign, took us to the vehicles and quicly arranged payment and key handover.

We have been going to Cyprus for over 25 years and for the last 10 of them have used Elephant Car Hire to hire a car for our stays. We have found their services second to none with the vehicles always well presented and less than 3 years old. There are no "hidden" costs - insurance or otherwise - and I have no hesitation in recommending the company to any visitor to Cyprus. (read more)

Great company and easy to use. This is the second time I have gone to Cyprus in 4 years and both times I have ordered my car from home via the internet, plenty of choice and options for pick up & delivery. Actually had a person waiting for me at the airport, on time clearly visible and led me straight to the car, no fuss and importantly no extras. Returning the car was easy too. Able to follow up any requests directly via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also use them when... (read more)

I am pleased to say there was a man waiting for me at the airport as the confirmatory email said. I had worried he might not be and I would be stranded. The car was ready to go and the paperwork was rather quick to complete. Card payment, half tank of fuel already in and pointed in the direction of the beach. Everyone seems to be in a hired nissan note so I didn't feel left out, especially when I thought I was getting a ford focus. I thought this was a local outfit trying there best to... (read more)

We searched the internet for the best deal and was tempted to stick to the people that we have used before, but then we saw Elephant and compared the prices and were surprised at how much cheaper they were compared to others. We wanted a four wheel drive and an airport pick up and drop off. We didnt know what to expect when we arrived at Paphos airport but we were pleasantly surprised at the proffessionalism of the man that met us and the vehicle was everything that we expected.

After much trawling through reviews, driving myself mad with indecision, finally I chose Elephant Car Hire and would now highly recommend them. I booked on line, and received confirmation. You don't pay until you pick the car up, which is a big plus in case of cancellation. Just before our holiday a pleasant lady rang up to enquire as to how much luggage we would have, and whether we would like an automatic, so she could assign us a car. If you have loads of suitcases and wind surfing gear,... (read more)

I booked A Ford fiesta on line,and although it says a similar car may be offered, I ended up with a Kia Picanto which isn't even listed in the website, and certainly is not similar to a fiesta! The car was delivered to my hotel by a very pleasant guy, but did not inform me what car I was hiring until I had signed up (my fault!)The car had 72 KM on the clock, and was very underpowered, had squeaky brakes, and hard suspension not suited to Cyprus roads, not impressed at all.

If you want to hire a car in Cyprus then consider my experience. First time I reserved a car it was with one of the Larnaca airport mainstream operators. We stood in line for 30 minutes before filling in the paperwork which took another 15 minutes as they tried to sell us every additional insurance under the sun; the car was dirty and sounded several thousand miles overdue for a service. The next time before booking a car I really researched prices and service and came up with Elephant Rent... (read more)

I have submitted a car booking form from their web site and received an automatic confirmation that a member of staff would contact me. However, nobody contacted me and I decided to call them to confirm the reservation. They could not find my request for some time and after they found it, I was told that no cars were available for the period I requested. Luckily I did not rely on the automatic confirmation and called. Otherwise, I would have got a bad surprise upon arrival. (read more)

We have been hiring cars at least twice a year for the past ten years for our holidays in Paphos.
We have used national and local hire companies but after reading Elephant reviews decided to try them this time.
We were not disappointed, everything they promised they delivered and more.
A quality vehicle, no discussions regarding extras, and we were quickly on our way.
By far the best company we have ever used and will be the first we consider on our future trips to Cyprus.

Just returned from Cyprus, our flight was delayed but the Elephant rep was waiting for us, as promised. He went through the paperwork with us and we added an extra driver to the insurance, at no extra cost, we paid 30 Euros for just over half a tank of fuel - this is a much better idea than having to purchase a full tank as most car hire companies do.

Booked Elephant after reading good reviews on this site. A change from the mainly negative reviews for most companies. As arranged, they were waiting in arrivals with a board with my name on it. Formalities were completed rapidly, and pleasantly. The car was as booked. I was charged for 1/2 tank of petrol. Rate seemed reasonable compared to other companies in Cyprus such as Europcar. The instructions for return were simple. The car was in good condition, clean, and did not have any issues.... (read more)

Ordered this car by email,two months in advanced no deposit. Car turned up at my hotel on time and I had been upgraded! NO HIDDEN XTRAS! The company does state that it will charge you for any fuel in the car on delivery. My car had 3/4 of a tank and I was charged 28 Euro! The cheapest petrol I have bought in many a year. You do not get refunded for unused fuel so do some xtra miles to use it up as the island is worth the effort. I have no concerns from my experience using this company. (read more)
