Hi Gordon

Try Greekstones. He is based in Skala, lots of good reports on this forum. We found him very good value and very helpful. Also a good car. Think they have a website, try www.greekstones-rentacar.com.

Have a great time,

Yiamass, Jean

If I'm not too late........

I too would totally recommend Greekstones. Been to Skala 3 times, used them every time. Unless you want or need to splash out, no real need for anything more than a Matiz. We had one with air con and electric roof and it was perfect. Word to the wise....we found quite a few petrol stations don't accept credit cards - cash only. See the big man called Antonis - he is a real crack. And don't forget to haggle! He will do you a deal. Rent with confidence.

Anything else?

We've been to Skala 3 times & have used both Greekstones & Pefanis. Both were excellent & very similar in price. It's probably worth booking with Greekstones just to have the experience of meeting Antonis!!

However, it might be worth booking online ahead of your stay. We did this year & it was definately cheaper. You don't pay anything online you just book the car you want & for how long. Then you pay when they deliver the car to your hotel. I agree that you only need a small car. You'll be lucky to get into 4th gear!!

Greekstones everytime for us. Antonis has become a friend not only the car hire guy. Highly recommended.

I agree with Trefin. If you feel confident with the positive reports on here about Greekstones (any you really should), go to their website and ping off an e.mail reserving the car of your choice. Malis (Antonis's Brother) will e.mail you back with confirmation and the price including all discounts. Take that e.mail in to Greekstones and say "I'm not paying that!!" and Antonis will tell you he has 10 children to support and 4 ex-wives and then still do a deal.
