In short, the best company I have worked with for car rental. I have been 4 consecutive years in Rethimno and comparing with internationals like Hertz for instance, Arkadi is few levels above. Professional, handy and Multilanguage speaking staff. Affordable prices and user friendly conditions .The last but, not the least friendly and smiling. Good luck, Arkadi team and see you next summer.

we booked online a quad after reading some reviews and checking prices. The contact person was friendly, informative and very professional. They picked us up from the hotel to take the quad. The service was excellent. Due to the quad, we've had the best vacation in Crete. I highly recommend to have a quad from Arkadi rental.
