Emailed Merlis car hire a couple of days ago to confirm prices and ask could we just give them a ring next week when we are in Kalamaki as we very much wanted to play hiring a car by ear depending on how much fun my daughter was having at the kids clubs at our hotel. Received an email back telling me that they only have two cars free for the entire two weeks we are there (Jun 16-30), one for 4 days and one for 5.
In many years visiting Zante I've simply walked into car rental places and arranged one for the following day and, having been in Kalamaki last July while staying in Argassi, didn't see any obvious signs that it was overly busy then. Do Merlis have a very small fleet or am I just being given the sales tack to try and get me to book one in advance?
Also, how many other car rental places are there in Kalamaki. I know there's a Eurohire at the top of the road from the Marelen.
