Samos car hire

We are travelling next month to Samos for a week or so. Can someone please recommend a reputible car rental company. I want to pick the car up from the airport. Also, should we book a car prior to going or it is possible to get a car when we arrive at the airport.

Have you tried to google "Samos, Greece, Car rental" ? You get get a few hits. I would not expect any car rental companys waiting in the airport unless pre-booked.

Hi Andrea,

we stayed last Sept near Pythagorion, and the transfer took 5 mins!

I then walked into Pyth and rented a small car very cheaply- it was 9 euros a day if you exclude the CDW/fuel/tax- cheaper than walking!!

I'd get a taxi to Pyth and check rates; in May it won't be busy- i used Europcar, Hyundai Getz.

Seat belts tight for the approach!!!

We prebooked a category B car in June 2009 with Aramis - Sixt which we picked up and dropped at the airport.. The charge for the week with full insurance was 220euros (20euros less for category A).

We are going to Balos in Samos during the last week in October. The travel company wants £260 for a catagory A car for the week. Is this good or should we book locally either in advance or when we arrive?

Thanks for any help

Hi there,

A category A car for a day should be about 25 - 30 euros a day. Try looking at Aramis car hire. We went with them and we they were the cheapest for us.

I hope this has helped. Good luck and enjoy your time in Samos.
