Sunbird

Car Rental on Kefalonia

William M          10/10

The scooter was booked in advance from the UK and was delivered on our arrival to the hotel. Fantastic service. Would recommend to anyone.

Sunbird is in my opinion the best car renatl in the resort. Tasos was friendly, flexible on terms and the best value we could find. If you get a Matiz remember to switch of the air con when you go up steep hills, believe me it makes it easier.

Seeing as everyone has nothing but praise for Tasos I thought you might like to see him (he's the one on the right, I'm on the left).

We can only repeat the good things everyone has said about Sunbird and the friendliness of Tasos.

Hi. Question about car hire in Lourdas - is it better to hire in advance from the UK or do it when you arrive for price?  Thanks.

Steve M           

Great service.  I booked a bike in advance and it was ready for me on arrival in Lourdas.  Very reasonable rates 200 euros for a fortnight.  Tassos speaks very good english and was very helpful.  A few bigger bikes would be welcome.  Maybe a Honda Transalp or BMW F650 etc.

I don`t know about being "beautiful" I would have to ask my wife, but Tasos was very prompt delivering our car, helpful recommending places to visit, and where to avoid, and even remembered our names and shouted and waved as we drove past.

Oh, and the Suzuki Jimny open top jeep was a great choice.

Think their prices were cheaper than average, about 90 euro for 3 days with excess of 200euro.  We did not hire a car from here, but I enjoyed walking past and making enquiries, as the man who runs this place is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!  Possibly the most handsome man I have ever seen!!  Go and see!  very friendly and professional too.

We had a bike which we ordered from the Uk and was ready and waiting as per our request. This is a big Island though and I am going to say get a car if you want to get about. However these guys will give you as good as service as anywhere else, including delivery to your accommodation. If you don't order from the UK its a long walk up that hill to the offices.

    Thank you Tasos for all your help again this year.    The service was excellent as usual!  We would highly recommend Sunbird to anyone.

Stayed in Lourdas the last 2 years and cant recommend Sunbird highly enough.
 
In 2003, we hired a car for a few days but decided to keep it until the final day. Tasos was fantastic and helpful and the friendliest guy you could meet.
 
In 2004, we booked from the UK to collect the car at the airport and return it to the airport on the way home.
Got an online discount and Tasos even phoned us at home to confirm the details and for a chat.
 
Not going this year due to newborn baby but we'll be back next years and hiring a car from Tasos again.

Hired a Fiat Punto and wouldnt recommend it for those hills in Lourdas!   But Tasos was great and a good host.    I think he got sick of waving to us everytime we drove past when we were lost!!  Sorry Tasos!!  Ha Ha!! 
 
I am only saying about the car because if you are not sure what car to get when making your choice, I personally wouldnt recommend a Punto for Lourdas, I would hire something with a bit more oomph in it.  

Joanne B           

I had prebooked a fiat punto from sunbird before i left england, when i arrived they had'nt got any available, so we had a suzuki swift instead, after a few days we went back to see tasos - the guy who ran the office in lourdas, and told him we were'nt happy with it as it was really not a good car to have on those mountain bends, and within the hour he got us a brand new kia picanto for the rest of our stay, which was great, thanks tasos.

Andy            

Fantastic value and service!
Very efficient and friendly.
Many thanks Tassos!

A must.

Helen B           

We would highly recommend Sunbird Hire cars. Tasos who runs the Lourdas office is so very friendly. He advises you on the best places to visit and is always available if you have any problems. CBR car hire owned by Olympic is slightly cheaper, but seem to have the monopoly over the other Greek firms. Give them a try you won't be disappointed.

Martin N           

Published prices are negotiable. A Suzuki Swift for 5 days cost us 140 Euros. But, ideally go for something with a little more power, this is a very hilly island.

Catwoman            

I didn't actually hire a bike or a car BUT i did spend a couple of hours in this shop talking to Tasos who between serving and haggling with the customers taught me a little Greek. What an absolute diamond, from what i heard he will get you a car at short notice, give the best deal around, deliver to your hotel or apartment if necessary and make a lovely cup of frappe while you wait!!
He also gives great tips on places of interest and can help you to book excursions for a good price, bloody top bloke.

this man is a star. We hire a trail bike for the week but we had an accident after 2 days we were OK just a bit shuck up so he swapped it for a small scooter, I thought I would be fine on this but it had really knocked my confidence so we went back to see him and he swopped it for a car. He said it was against company policy to swop between cars and bikes but he did it anyway, i would totally recommend this company again they were brilliant at deally with unusual sisuations

Patrica E           

WE HIRED A CAR FOR 4 DAYS. IT WAS A FIAT BRAND NEW ONLY 6.000 KMS ON THE CLOCK. THE MAN IN THE SHOP WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.

For anyone trying to pre-book their car hire, we e-mailed three local companies in January to get a quote on a 4x4 for 14 days in July. The first response back was after just 7 days (not bad for out of season) from CBR Rent-a-car (Contact: Andreas Pefanis in Argostoli (other offices in Skala, Lassi & Lourdas) Tel: +30 (26710) 22770 Fax: +30 (26710) 24552 E-mail: cbr1@otener.gr). CBR quoted €850 for a Vitara (discounted from €950). Next in was a reply from Greekstones Rent a Car (Contact: Menalaos Antoniou in Svoronata (other office in Skala) Tel: +30671042201 Fax: +30671042202 E-mail: info@greekstones-rentacar.com). Greekstones quoted €690 for a Jimny, which we accepted. Sunbird came back a week later at €10 cheaper (Contact: Antonis Kastanas in Argostoli (other offices in Svoronata, Poros, Sami, Skala, Lassi & Lourdas) Tel: +30 2671023723 Fax: +30 2671025484 E-mail: info@sunbird.gr). All the prices seem considerably more expensive than when we paid €420 in for a 4x4 for 2 weeks in Santorini last year, whilst all the companies offered free delivery and collection to/from Lourdas. However, since booking with him, ‘Melis’ from Greekstones has telephoned us at home to thank us for our order and respond to our request to confirm that the vehicle is a soft top (excellent written and spoken English), and we have just received an unsolicited e-mail from him promising a free tank of petrol on arrival, so he wins on service.
