Positively surpised to see quite a few good reviews for european car rental!!

This is the 3 year that we rent a small scooter from them! As loyal cliets we get a terrific rate of 15 eur per day (but we rent for 13 days!).

Last year and this year (we are still on Paros in the midst of our vacation), we got the same little black Aprilla. We really like it, the rear brake is a bit wore down (less sensitive) but overall so far so good. Last year we drove sth else the first days. That scooter broke midway (ignition, if i remember correctly). We were about 6 km from Parikia, called the office, they came within 15 min, attempted to fix, couldnt, so the guy let us drive off with his scooter (the Aprilla).

So yeah, I also recommend them!

Please drive careffully on the island for your and others safety!!!!

Public transport is excellent and comprehensive on Paros and the island is relatively small.I have visited many times and never considered rentiing a car or moped.Using the bus and a bit of walking I have seen virtually all the island.and visited lots of different beaches.Why be a slave to the automobile when you are on holiday ?

Richard, I wholeheartedly agree! In the many times I have visited Paros and Antiparos I have never rented a car or scooter. I do enough driving at home, so it is nice to put that aside for a few weeks and enjoy walking & using public transport. :o)

We have been in Paros many times too and i´d like to confirm too that Paroscars owner "O kirios" Vassilios is the man of the honour and I think he has the best name in Parikia rentals.

Ti consiglio di non prenotare assolutamente l'auto dal caldera Rent a Car, in Parikia, che si trova subito alla sinistra degli imbarchi (direzione Aliki), presso l'agenzia Blue Star Ferries. A noi hanno fornito una macchina in condizioni pessime e senza il clacson funzionante. Sollecitati per diversi giorni e modificarcela, ce l'ahho cambiata - dopo una settimana - con un'altra che aveva le stesse caratteristiche!!! Inoltre ci hanno dato una macchina più grande di quella che avevamo prenotato dall'Italia, obbligandoci a pagare una cauzione più alta. Il proprietario è estremamente sgarbato e pare divertirsi alquanto ad offendere i clienti e prendersi gioco di loro (a noi ci ha fatto perdere 5 giorni di vacanza, facendoci attraversare tutta l'isola, dicendo ogni volta che ci avrebbe fatto rovare una nuova auto e, ogni volta che arrivavamo da lui, diceva che non ne aveva più a disposizione). Una vergogna!!!

Public transport is excellent on Paros only in July and August. It is not too bad in June and September, OK in May and October if you do not want to journey after 1900. In the 5 winter months (Nov-Mar) the last bus from Parikia on all routes is normally 1600 or 1610. April depends a bit on when the Greek Easter is. This May there seemed to be less buses than in the previous year.

What Paros and most of the islands need is an imaginative ticketing system, such as all day tickets, even weekly ones.

Avoid agency rent a motorbike D.Kipreos across the beginning of the Livadia beach at Parikia. They are offering very low prices, but giving for rental very old motorbikes, in very bad condition, mechanically changed, with some parts doesn't work, like speedometer or fuel indicator. Also they will confirm whatever you ask even many things are not true. Except losing money and nervs, someone could be seriously injured...

We hired by Spanopoulos in mid August 2013 and was cheated to pay a higher price 50 €/day for 5 days. The mutual deal was originally 45 €. First time ever to be cheated in Greece during many years of traveling there. So a big dislike to this company.
