Our Story

AthensCars-Crete Car hire for Crete started in 1973 with locations in Crete. AthensCars focused its mission on providing a fun, low-cost, high-value rental experience to family and leisure travellers.

AthensCars-crete quickly became one of Crete island’s largest vacation car rental providers. In addition, the company created programs to accommodate and encourage leisure travel since 1973. To facilitate the increase in leisure travelers, AthensCars-crete constructed state-of-the art rental plazas, geared to serve hundreds of customers in a modern, ultra-spacious environment.

The first car rental station opened in Heraklion center, close to the archaeological museum, in 1973. After that, more stations followed in other major leisure destinations including Chania, Rethymnon and Agios Nikolaos cities. After that, AthensCars became Crete’s largest rental facility. In 1984 however, AthensCars introduced a new customized rental agreement. It was a program that stored a traveler’s individual rental information for instant reference.
