Not really up to standard May 11, 2017
Arriving in Chesonnissos, Crete I've decided to rent a car to explore the island. If you look around there are car rental companies after every corner. So enough choises. To be on the save side, I tought at that moment, I went for a company working under supervision, franchise, of Europcar. I've choosen for a small car with automatic gear. This was already a issue because they had no car ready for rent in that class so I would get an upgrade. But no a few minutes later a customer had to bring in his car and this was the class which I ordered. So please wait a few moments. The car will arrive in a few minutes. In the meanwhile the guy explained us what was interesting to visit in Crete. The car arrived, they inspected it with the previous renter and was ready for me. No cleaning, no motor checks nothing. So ok I was happy to be able to be on my way and what can happen this is Europcar. So disappointing. Not just 80km driven the breakshoes seems to be gone. So breaking was metal to metal. Knowing that Crete has a lot of mountains good breaks are essential!. So back to the rental company. They took the car and changed the brakeshoes. All done in half an hour. Nice and well but I had to intterrupt my first trip and my convidence in the car was also very low. I ask the agent if the motor should be checked to be sure. NO NO everything is OK. Nevertheless I didn't have any more breakdowns the car was making a suspicious noise at 80 km/h and putted me always on my guard. So no stressless travel. Knowing what I know now I wouldn't rent a car from this company anymore
