Car hire - Stoupa

Post by lnor1 » Wed Apr 22, 2015 1:04 pm

We are in Stoupa for a couple of weeks at the end of June & are thinking of hiring a car for a few days in each of our two weeks. Does anyone know if it is worth hiring on-line before we come out or simply to arrange, once we are in Stoupa?

I guess it depends on what you mean by 'worth'. If you want the cheapest price it will probably be achievable online before hand. If you want personal service and local knowledge then hire locally in resort. Recommended would be http://www.manicars.gr or http://napoleon-rentacar.gr/index.php/en/, both in Stoupa. If you know for certain what days you will want a car, it might be advisable to check with them first to avoid disappointment as it will be peak season. A word of warning, last year I booked a car (through a 'broker') on-line, which was an extremely good deal. Sadly everyone, or so it seemed, on our flight also had booked cars from the same desk at Kalamata airport and there was a wait of over 2 hours for some while the understaffed desk dealt with the queue!

We also use Napoleon car rentals in Stoupa. Maria is a gem and they are easy to deal with, give excellent service and any problems are quickly sorted out (much easier dealing with a local company on those issues than one in Athens for example). They are also very flexible and will go the extra mile to fit in with your requirements.
I would certainly advise pre-booking in advance to "reserve" the car you want.

Many thanks for the very quick replies. I think I've used both Mani Cars & Napoleon before (albeit a number of years ago!) so will look to book on-line before we come to Stoupa. Looking forward to our holiday very much - 3 years since the last visit! :D
