I’ve seen better looking cars at banger racing, not an undamaged panel on it. Staff were fine but think I’d go elsewhere given quality of car provided.

It was great to be able to get around Crete without always having to rely on taxis or buses (although we did take the bus a couple of times when we wanted to have a drink in town - and they were reliable, clean and cheap). The car (9 seater Peugeot minivan) we'd chosen was plenty big enough for 6 adults plus luggage. It was a bit "bashed up" when we received it - looks like someone had scraped it along a wall - but that didn't affect the driving. We visited Marathi beach, Chania town, Sarakina Gorge and a few beaches local to where we were staying. It sometimes felt a bit big on some of the smaller roads - but we knew we were getting a big old waggon!

Lovely end of season weather, warm and sunny with very few tourists. Lovely food in authentic Greek tavernas, kantinas, bakeries and Gyros sellers. Empty beaches, warm sea with clear water providing excellent visibility for snorkelling.

I was only offered an automatic and as we had booked a small car it felt underpowered. I would have preferred a manual car as we were driving over hills where additional power would have been a benefit
