Car Hire, Paphos - credit card

Anyone hired a car without using a credit card - if so - where?

Is it possible to use my Switch Card on collection instead of a credit card?

We booked on line last year, did not have to pay a deposit and paid cash on delivery of the car. if you have found a company you want to use just e mail and ask about Switch card.

Hi Delmelia - We usually use Savvas Houlos for our car hire. You communicate with him by e-mail, choose your car, fix your price then pay nothing until he meets you at the airport with the car. I always pay him in cash.

He isn't the cheapest but his cars are new and in good condition with low mileage. He will meet you at the airport or he will bring your car to wherever you are staying at a time to suit you. If anything goes wrong with the car he sorts it out straight away (we had a puncture that he fixed in a couple of hours).

You can contact him on the following e-mail address:

Most companies will require a credit card. This is because they want to be able to charge any excess to your card should you be involved in an accident etc. I used www.gorentacar.com.cy I booked online, paid 10% on credit card and are paying the rest in cash when I pick it up.

Hi. I too used Savvas Houlos, booking via e-mail and paying with my Nationwide credit card. However, my vehicle, a Suzuki soft top was hardly new, unlike your previous respondent, as it had 27,000 kilometres on the clock ! Having said that, battered as it was, I didn't have any problem with it. Also, it was actually slightly cheaper paying with my Nationwide credit card rather than using cash.
