arrived to collect our car which was in pretty poor shape. Needed a seven seater. Commented on all the scrapes and was careful when watching the guy complete his form. He did not open the door to look inside and so neither did we. Have never checked the inside of a hire car. On our return as soon as we pulled in the guy ran to the passenger door and looked at the underside of the chair and said that we had broken the plastic around the bottom. It was so obvious that he knew it was broken it was… Read Full Review

Our car rental was booked as part of a package and meant to be a good deal. Really wish we'd booked separately as CBR were the worst car rental company we've ever used. Car was an old Hyundai Accent with over 40k km on the clock, really uncomfortable and small and lots of faults - remote locking broken, wipers didn't clean, door hinges broken.... and no hi-vis vests as required by law. Company not interested in problems or feedback… Read Full Review

Used this company when they were affiliated with Avis and had good service. They are now independent and the service has deteriorate over time but still I have continued use them. This year had a skid on wet road ( never had a problem before in over 20 years visiting this island) not major and nobody hurt but car skidded sideways into a coppiced olive tree. It took the company two hours to pick us up and when we arrived at the rental office in Skala they attempted to threaten us into paying 500… Read Full Review

Picked up and dropped off car from Argostoli. Car was great and everything was hassle free. The service was particularly good - CBR arranged for my mobile phone which I had left in the car (Early morning drop off) to be couriered to Ireland. The phone arrived a few days later and so I was able to continue my holiday without worry. Many thanks. Will use CBR again in future… Read Full Review

We ordered a Megan online, however ended up with a Hyundai i30 without any reduction in the price. Not ideal but my preference would have been the Megan. The staff were pleasant but mildly hostile, they wouldn't offer me a no excess insurance policy and were greatly upset when I walked them outside to show them their own large sign clearly stating "NO EXCESS". Regardless we were stung by the trick that they seem to play on a lot of tourists having looked online in retrospect - underside… Read Full Review

When you turn up at the desk after your flight the last thing you want is to stand in a queue in the hot sun for 40 minutes watching the painfully slow manual list checking and form filling. They don't appear to have discovered computers yet like Herts, Avis, Alamo etc and hence the very slow service. The Car we had was a Fiat Punto although relatively new it had no power, the gearbox was useless and although they said the was wipe worked it didn't. All in all they are only marginally cheaper… Read Full Review

I got a new Fiat Panda, very nice car to go around the island. The staff was very friendly and spent half an hour letting me know about how I could spent my five days rental period. I would definately recommend it to a friend and I will back, that's for sure! … Read Full Review

I just took the kids for a cheapy week in beautiful kefalonia. Made a huge mistake by going cheap with car hire in two ways: 1) the car was advertised as 'can fit two suitcases in the boot' but in reality it was lucky we are a three person family as we needed to fold one of the chairs down in the back - and even then could only just fit one full size suitcase, and two small bags and us. 2) en route to our apartment the aerial fell off. I looked at it and the connection was completely corroded… Read Full Review

CBR-Rentacar (CBR-Rentacar.com) were one of the two companies recommended to me by the owner of the villa we rented on Kefalonia. The price they offered was good (a discount over the website booking price) and the instructions they provided for car collection were clear and precise (the office is literally at the entrance to the airport - 100 yards from the terminal). When I arrived, the car was ready for me and the lady was friendly and professional and implored me not to lose the car key… Read Full Review

Money making machine, tourists rip-off... Upon arrival to pick up my car, I saw a customer being charged for scratching his hired car underneath, I thought that was a bit odd but still hired the car anyway. For my surprise, EXACTLY the same happened to me, the first thing that the staff look when a car is being returned is underneath the car!!! I have never ever seen anything like this before in any rental car before, and I have rented cars all over Europe and rest of the world. It is… Read Full Review

I have been going to Kefalonia for 10 years now, hired a CBR car the 1st year through Olympic holidays they are great but with CBR I had worn tyres, no jack to change a flat tyre and to top it all I was in Skala and they told me they had no replacement car or new tyre,s they told me to drive to the main office 1 hours drive away which I had to do as I wanted to drive a safe car and that was most of 1 days holiday gone putting there car right.
This year I have heard that they are calling all… Read Full Review

We have been traveling to Kefalonia for 7 years now and have in the past recommended CBR even though we do not use them, this will no longer be happening. I also hope that no other holidayers are subjected to the reception that we received. If you need to rent a car in kefalonia, which you should to experience the beauty of the island look around on the internet before you go. You can find good deals with full insurance from reputable world wide rental companies. If you go to Lourdas a… Read Full Review

We have used CBR car rental in the resort of Skala for the past 8 years or so. We never consider going anywhere else as we have always been given excellent service by the team. When we did have a problem develop with a car we hired, it was exchanged swiftly with no questions (other than the obvious mechanical ones!) asked.
We look forward to using their services again in October… Read Full Review

We have been to Kefalonia twice, and both times our cars were booked by Direct Greece through CBR, and we could not have been happier.
Last year our car was delivered to our villa at our request, but this year, as we knew the island, we picked the car up at the airport and drove ourselves to the villa.
Someone was there to meet us at the airport, and dealt with us straightaway, and the manager of the CBR office in Lourdas greeted us like friends and made us very welcome.
The cars are in… Read Full Review
