Hello!


I’m living in Crete and I’m interested to rent a small and cheap car. This car could be also old, not necessarily new (could be a Fiat Punto 720 used car, for example). I’m interested in a minimum price per month. This is a very important thing, the price.

Until now I've found only agencies which rent new cars for tourists. These agencies usually rent the car for one or a few days and they have big prices. I'm not interested in such a kind of rental. Do you know companies in Crete which rent also used cars and for long term? I mean by long term, several months, up to 6 months, or maybe more.


Thank you!
Have a nice day!

Sorin

The same car rental agencies that rent cars to tourists, offer long-term rentals in lower prices, usually in the winter months. You have to contact them and see what kind of offer you will get.

Dear Yannis,

I've already contacted them but the smallest price that they can offer is about 500 EUR/month. This is for me too expensive, although for them is a significant discount - becaue they rent the same car per day with about 30 EUR, so per month could be 30x30=900 EUR! :huh:

A friend of mine bought a 15-years old Ford Escort for 1500 Euro. if you search you will find even cheaper used cars. Perhaps that will be a better option than renting a car for 6 months or longer.
