Online booking process:
First, select the dates and location for the pick up & drop off.
After that you will be shown all available vehicles for your rental period together with the total price (including all taxes). Remember that Scooters & ATVs can only be picked up at our agency.
All rentals are calculated on a 24-hour basis and rates vary depending on seasonality. During high season one day rentals might not be accepted.
In case the return of the vehicle is later than the time written on the contract (the 24-hour cycle), for every hour, 1/3 of the price will be charged.
A delay of more than 3 hours will cost a full days rental.
After selecting your favorite vehicle you will be redirected to a new page to confirm the reservation details. In this step you may add children/baby car seats at the bottom of the page without extra charge.
