We were very satisfied with the Eurodollar rental service. The price, the vehicle, the insurance guarantees and the availability and friendliness of the staff won us over. We highly recommend.

If I could give more stars, I would. I chose them because of their high ratings on google and the good price. Everything was perfect from booking to the end. I was able to book very easily, although we got a car in a similar category, an almost new Opel, which took us everywhere. In a word, great! I recommend them to everyone.

We booked a VW Golf for our vacation in september ‘22 and were really impressed how fast and uncomplicated the completion of the booking was. The place where you get the car is right next to the Heraklion airport. It is easy to reach by walking a few meters. After arriving at the station we got assisted by the very nice and courteous employee. The price was good, no deposit and easy payment. The car was clean, fueled and all in all in a very good condition. We highly recommend Eurodollar!

We chose this rental company thanks to Google reviews and we were not disappointed. The rental company speaks French, it is located in front of the airport, 5 minutes away on foot, possibility of dropping off the vehicle early in the morning, and the prices are a little more attractive than the large groups of vehicle rentals. We recommend this rental company.

Very good and easy car rental available in Heraklion airport. The hire procedure of picking up the car is very easy. The price quoted is the price paid and the responsibility of the renter is the glass, tyres and wheels. The rest is covered in the price of the rental agreement. They have a fuel policy of what the car is on it goes back on also. If I return to Crete I will definitely be using EURODOLLAR again.
