Car delivered on time, and no problem with drop off either. Car worked fine and was to specification, but one of us found the gear stick was a little hard to get into first gear (due to wear?). Otherwise no problems at all.

A bit of confusion where to meet up at the port that was sorted by a port officer. Car was what we expected - clean and new. Drop off was simple.

We were blown away by how easy this was. The agent met us as we got off our ferry and then they met us at the curb at the airport to pick it up. I've never had such an easy car rental experience. Honestly, I was skeptical that this would go so smoothly, but it was REMARKABLE!

While we had a breakdown with the first car on our first day, it was quick and fairly easy to get a new one to us! The new car was wonderful and we were very happy with the price and service.

Issue with luggage fitting into one car was a problem when arriving in Santorini. Rental car should of been larger. We managed by taking 2 cars to the hotel and upon returning to the port. The Mercedes van was a gem. The kids loved it and had plenty of room. We drove all over the western and southern parts of greece. We visited the horio. Returning the van at the airport was the best thing for us. The Greeks are the worst drivers in the world... arrogant and aggressive. I was scared to return the van at Athens. We spent another night in a hotel because we could not return the van one day later. We did get refunded one day...

we were 5 hours late in Heraklion and the guy from Avance stayed late so we could get a car. It was awesome. The car on Rhode was kinda junky, but painless transaction.

The car rental was interesting. We did not fully understand that we where to return the car at the Athens airport. Finally figured out that we were to wait in the no parking area for someone from the rental agency to show up. The area to return the car in Crete was not well marked. The cars were good. Just needed more communication regarding car return procedures.

There were problems with the diesel van when they handed it over to me at the Athens hotel. The representative could not get it started. During the week we had the van, there was one time when it took over 15 min to start the vehicle. I sent my agent an email and within minutes (on a Sunday I think) for her to reply and within an hour or so, the van rental people called. The drop off at the airport was very well timed.
