I use Zest.com They are usually very reasonable with no deposit and a free extra driver. Just check that the pick up option is on airport not off airport which is a 15 minute drive away.

Zest.com is to do with shower products. Think you meant https://www.zestcarrental.com

This is a consolidator giving you deals with lots of different car hire companies.
There are many you can use for comparison such as:
Holidayautos.com or rentalcars.com etc. Most are cheaper than going direct with the rental company.

We use economycarrentals.com as they offer zero excess and free extra driver but not with all rental companies so check details. It will say if a deal is on or off airport and which freebies are offered.
They also have a loyalty discount once you have used them a few times.
Paul.

Stevenscarrentals meet you in arrivals, fill in paperwork, pay, taken up to departures and car waiting for you. Jump in and off you go. Price quoted is price you pay plus petrol. No fee for extra drivers or badgered to take extra insurance. No money blocked on cc either. Nearly new cars, always a pleasure to deal with.

As others have said they meet you at Arrivals complete paper work, then you walk outside and the car is there for you, upon return you just phone to let them know what time you will be at the airport, they will be waiting, they get the cases out and off you go to Departures. I have been using this Company for many many years now and have always had excellent Service , can't recommend them enough. Oh yes and they are competitive with no hidden extras.

Not used Stevens, always ECR for myself. Quick check on a week in April next year and Stevens 50% more, so not sure why Id pay that. Been to Cyprus multiple times over the last 15 years and never had an issues with bumps or scratches from any of the companies Ive used.

Stevens include insurance in their price, most other company's add that on after . you need to compare like for like. to get a fair comparison.

I think every time car rental comes up on here, there is a lot of recommendations for Stevens, that should tell you enough, sometimes its not just about the money.

Never had a problem with Economy Car Rentals. They give you a free extra driver and no excess and don't block any money on your Credit Card.

They are always cheaper than Stevens

Just wondered if you can get a better deal if you email them direct.

Managed to get a much better deal by email with Petsas but Steven's is getting such good reviews....

Out of curiosity I decided to check them out.

Can't quite believe the price 263.00 form 18th Sept until 9th Oct. Got to be a catch surely....

As an experiment I have just tried to book ECR for October this year and it seems to only take bookings for under 70 year olds.? Worth remembering in the years to come.

Do any car hire companies in Cyprus rent to over 70's...I thought not?
I have a few years to go yet but I have checked previously for my older brother.

I have always rented via ECR in Cyprus simply because they always had the best price and generally offered free extra driver and zero excess. They also give a frequent renter discount.

Winter rates with them, after the end of October usually, are very low.
Just did a sample booking for 3 weeks in November..... 86 with the zero excess and free extra driver. This is probably with Enterprise which is off airport, about 10 minutes in their free bus.
Cheapest on airport is 131 with zero excess but no free extra driver.

I have never rented with Stevens but from this and previous posts on here it would seem they offer a premium service but apart from comments like 'competitive' or 'good value' when it comes down to exact quotes they seem more expensive. When this has been mentioned before people say ring them for their best quote. All I can say is do that and then make your choice.
Their numbers are:
Tel: (00357) 24 656 204
Tel: (00357) 24 625 605

Mob: (00357) 9965 9809
Mob: (00357) 9942 9899

I just had a quick look at their website and their cheapest winter rate is 13 a day for 7+ days.

Paul.

A friend of ours rented a car with Avis Budget. They were the only company who would rent a car to an 82 year old
