Sunbird - (Car Rental on Kefalonia)

John S           

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.
