    Outstanding Service!
    What amazing service from Simon and the team!!! Booking online was very easy and the communication that followed was fantastic. Very clear instructions on where to meet at the airport and Simon is a fountain of knowledge with so many tips and recommendations. The car was in great shape and returning it was just as easy as the collection, with the team kindly accommodating our earlier than planned arrival at the airport. I have no hesitation in recommending Simila!!
    Thank you very much for your 5 star review , we look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes from us all at Simila Cyprus Car Rentals

    Great service from beginning to end. They are fantastic.
    We have used Simila for the last 4 trips to Cyprus. What an amazing service and support from booking to drop off. Over the last 5 years we have used so many in Paphos and have to say, I will always be booking with Simila. Especially while everyone is queuing in the airport for the big brands 🤣 we have already kicked off our holiday in the pool 👍.

    Fantastic car hire, highly recommend
    Recently hired a car from Simila based on reviews on here, and so pleased we did - the service and communication were first class. Easy to set up with small deposit, and options to pay balance, and no additional credit card security. Our flight in was delayed by an hour or so but kept in touch with Simon who was there with the car as we came through and we were driving away within minutes. Simon provided excellent service which included great advice on places to go and things to see while in Cyprus. Drop off of the car was equally easy. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely recommend.

    Best car hire in Cyprus. Used many times and always dependable.
    Best car hire in Cyprus. Used many times, always reliable with no hidden extras. Also provides plenty of extra information to help make your trip even more enjoyable. Will use again. Book early as word is spreading how good the service is.

    Would definitely recommend
    We've had some unforeseeable car trouble, but were given another car with no hesitation. We also got a lot of useful tips for what to see and where to go, and the communication in general was great. Also, there were no hidden costs or anything like that, so the price you agree on in the beginning is what you pay 👍
    Thank you

    Friendly, honest easy
    We pre-booked a car for ten days, pick up and drop off at pafos airport. We were met outside straight away and the same with the drop of, there were no problems and very professional and friendly service. There were no extra costs like a lot of other companies so no nasty surprises. You also get information and places to go and things to see which if you haven't been to Cyprus before is invaluable. I will without any doubt use Simila when I return to Cyprus and will happily recommend them to anybody, excellent service.

Amazing experience. I always prefer local car rental companies with great reviews and I never regret. Simon was very nice and helpful, he gave us all important instructions about the car and driving in Cyprus. He also recommended us many places to visit, restaurants, museums, boat trips with special price only for Simila clients. The drop-off was seemless as well, Julie was very nice and kind. This is how successful business should be done. Forget about big rental companies like Avis or Sixt, support local and honest businesses.

Excellent service right from our first enquiry online and subsequent telephone conversation with Julie to confirm booking and pay deposit, through delivery of the car and easy return via leaving key with our hotel.reception desk. The use of a WhatsApp group to provide you with information about the hire and things to do/see, suggested routes and links to Google maps, plus restaurant suggestions is brilliant. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking for car hire in the Pafos area.

Second time we have used this company and excellent as always. Car delivered promptly to our Hotel and we were able to just hand back keys to hotel reception when we were done.
Their 5 star insurance is the best I have come across and there are no hidden charges or large excesses.
Although there are cheaper rates from the big companies at the airport, these have lots of extras and large excesses.
They provided 2 booster seats free of charge for my 9 year old boys.
Excellent friendly service and would wholy recommend
Company is run by British ex pats

I fully recommend this family run car rental company. The customer service though phone contacts and whattsup contacts od excellent level, Simila responsiveness, offered price, car map tours, discounts available to the other organized trips and the time speed delivery and return of car is top rated. I have had smaller car, 5 person Nissan that still with its age, had many benefits to offer. Off track not allowed that its merit, as the car are on very good condition. Car very clean at the check in. Hope, it was at the check out too. 😄

Absolutely fantastic; start to finish!! Naively, I didn’t think to actually book before I rocked up expecting to be able to get a rental car on the same day. Fortunately; they had a car returning that very same hour. I was advised the car needed to go get a battery replacement as it had just had a battery related issue but I was desperate for the car. (It was bank holiday so he couldn’t get a battery same day) Simon agreed to provide me with the car anyway and provide me with a jumper pack, just incase. On collection of the car, I was provided with a list of recommendations, places to go, places to eat etc. also a little discount to some excursions! The first day; the car was brilliant. No issues. The following morning, the battery was dead. I messaged them on WhatsApp to advise the issue had arisen; just as I got the car started Simon was already on his way to my hotel with a replacement! From problem to new car took around 30 minutes. I could not be more grateful to the team. Simply amazing. Could not rate them highly enough and will definitely be using them when we return to paphos in the future!
