“Wouldn't recommend to an enemy”

Written on: 26/08/2016 by Molloy267 (1 review written)

I scoured the internet for car hire in Crete and came across Eurocar just outside Rethymnon. I wish now that I had gone with a better car hire company. The Suzuki Jimny I hired was a little cheaper than others though: Was really old and battered; Had a gearbox that was as rough as a old boot; Squealed like a stuck pig for the first 5 minutes on start-up; and Had no radio. All in all, really rubbish and made driving in a beautiful country unpleasant. I would never use them again… Read Full Review

“If I could give negative star rating I would...”

Written on: 06/07/2016

The staff at the Heraklion Europcar are rude and extremely intimidating. On arrival, the man behind the counter would not take no for an answer for additional insurance, despite me having already insured in the UK. This was an additional significant cost. The only explanation was well you hired a cheap car what do you expect. We were then presented with a very old Skoda Octavia. Certainly older than the 6year old greek legal limit! The car served its purpose, a family car for a family… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague!”

Written on: 12/08/2012

In fact given a choice between this company and the plague, take the plague. Very old car which kept overheating. Bits falling off it. Air con didn't work in temps of 37*. Price hike at the airport. Could have bought the car in the UK for what we paid to hire it.When we emailed for a replacement car we were completely ignored. We were worried it wouldnt get us back to the airport to come home. When we returned the car we felt like parking it in the sea. No redeeming features. Take heed of the… Read Full Review

“FIRST GREEK CROOKS WE'VE EVER MET!!!!!!!”

Written on: 03/09/2011 by Cretehols (1 review written)

Booked online and secured two cars a Hyundai Accent and a Fiat Punto at a price of £379 & £326 Euros. We printed off all the email confirmations and took them with us, however this proved of no use whatsoever!! Upon arriving at the airport the contact Miron, kept us waiting for well over an hour before he finally showed his face. When he did he claimed he would need 575 euros for each car dispute us having the printed confirmation. After much discussion he called his boss another Miron… Read Full Review

“SCAMMERS - DO NOT USE THEM!”

Written on: 11/07/2011

We were told that we would be met at the airport with the car. This never happened. When we called 'Miron' and he yelled directions at us. We struggled to find the location but when we got there we were told that there was no car booked (even though I had the email confirmation printed out). He then told me that they could organise a car but at a way dearer price. I explained that I had been quoted this price (had the email with me) but they refused to accept it. We (like so many others) really… Read Full Review

“Eurocar is obviously an imitation”

Written on: 26/05/2011

The Eurocar web site uses the same colours as they use in Europcar, the international company. And it seems that they also try to imitate Eurocars, the very well recommended Cretan car rental agency, because the original name was Shinarakis car rental, and they changed it to Eurocar only some years ago when Eurocars was already very successful… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2010

We have just returned from Crete and I felt that I just had to write a review about this company. On our nighttime arrival at Chania airport we were taken to the rental car which was conveniently parked in a dark spot so that we could not see what a poor condition the car was in. Having driven to our hotel it did not long to realise that the car was in very poor condition, certainly not new as advertised on their website and in fact it was dangerous to drive. The brakes were dreadful and not… Read Full Review

“Price was realy cheap but you get what you pay! ”

Written on: 15/10/2010

Price was realy cheap but you get what you pay!

You will get an old car with a lot of miles and bumps, all service indicators telling you to do service, tires which are not ok and in my case even the dynamo indicator was on and the doors were no opening.

After one week the car would not start and it took them 5 hours to
contact me by phone and in these 5 hours they were not reachable on none of the 2 numbers and not on the mobile.

Service was promised to be done in next morning (20 hours… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/05/2010

This company failed to deliver a car as scheduled, leaving my family and I wasting time in the hotel lobby. My husband called 45 minutes after the originally scheduled delivery time and was told delivery would be late due to the late return of the car we were to rent. My husband was told the car would be delivered in 30 minutes. It is now nearly two hours later and the company won't even accept any phone calls. The hotel manager was able to contact another office of this company and they… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2009 by Niam (1 review written)

I was interested in hiring a car by "Crete Car Hire - Eurocar" in the October special offer "Cheap Car Hire Offers for October 2009 - Chevrolet Matiz: 125' for 7 days"
I received an email confirmation that the Matiz is available. When we arrived at Chania's airport, there was a person from Cretecarhire-eurocar with Fiat Punto instead the Matiz and the person said this is what we have for you "yes you wanted the Matiz but nothing wrong with the Punto".
The Radio was not working, the wiper were… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/06/2009 by hoolihound (1 review written)

Eurocar Crete Car Hire website states that customers are covered by insurance in the event of an accident that isn't their fault and that this is included in the car hire price quoted on the internet. When we got to Chania, we were told that we would have to pay an additional 90euros for this cover. Being hot and tired after a long journey, I foolishly paid. It was only later that I realised I shouldn't have. On return to UK, I emailed to query this and ask for an explanation and, guess… Read Full Review
