Sixt Tips

Sixt Tips

It's not hard to see why Zakynthos is such a popular destination for tourists. Besides the brilliant beauty of this Ionian island hotspot, there's cultural attractions galore and a distinct local heritage that sets it aside from many other Greek islands. The city of Zakynthos, otherwise known as Zante, is the beating heart of the island and exemplifies everything special about this dream destination. Relax and dine at Dolomos Square, the bustling hub of the capital that sets itself apart from other town squares with its majestic maritime backdrop. The architectural DNA of the city is also one-of-a-kind, with an impressive mixture of thoroughly modern buildings sat alongside beautiful churches and market squares that have stood proud for centuries. It's a place that provides something for every preference in every respect. When dining out, take your pick from traditional taverns serving up local delicacies or indulge in something altogether more luxurious at a rooftop restaurant where the only thing better than the food is the view.

When we arrived to the island I didn't have a car reservation I called this car place after trying 2 others that were closed due to off season and to my luck the lady working said she would come pick us up (we were 10 minutes away) and drove us to get the car. Got us on our way quick it was the BEST experience with renting a car we have had! Thank you so so much!!!

Best car rental place! Very friendly and gave awesome tips for the trip! Also, you should take the recommended insurances. I had a white Renault Clio, good small car for the small streets.

I got a lift from the rental office to the departure entrance, after I dropped off the car.
