Anyone ever used Odysseys car rental in Athens?
It seems so cheap... , but old cars.
Is this a reliable company?
they appear to be an online broker offering cars in various areas of Greece. With car hire you tend to get what you pay for. A cheap old car will be a cheap old car. Matter of luck whether you get a bargain or a lemon.
For a reliable company offering good cars at reasonable prices check out ACR (Athens Car Rental) - a local independent Athens company. I cannot post the link just now but if you check my recent posts on TA in last 2 days I gave a link to them. Beware of similar names - do use my link to get the right one.
Here is the link to ACR
We get a lot of sorry tales about various car hire disappointments & scams here on the forums. It is always worth paying just a little bit more to get something reliable. If something seems so cheap it is too good to be true - then it probably is. Best strategy is to research "car hire" across the Greece/Athens boards & do beware of high praise for any company when all that praise seems to come from first time posters who never contribute again to the forums. Self-promotion by dodgy companies is rife!Edited: 15 November 2013, 09:08
I agree with tsipouro, you do get what you pay for. I used Athens car rental on their advice and I was very happy with the service, so much so that I have booked with them for our next trip to Greece.
Check this topic, looks like it is the same company:
