Update regarding Covid-19

In order to ensure the health of our customers and staff, Kourites Car Rentals in Crete accurately follows all the health protocols issued by the Greek Ministry of Health regarding the operation of car rental companies. We are also closely monitoring the news, information and advice from the World Health Organization in order to protect, as well as to contribute to the interruption of the transmission chain.

Your safety, as well as the safety of our people, is our #1 priority!

In addition to the reinforced vehicle cleaning measures we have already implemented, with the systematic use of disinfectant agents, we are also currently deploying extra measures in our stations:

  • Systematic desk disinfection between each customer
  • “Zero contact” policy (vehicle key sealed in an envelope once disinfected).
  • Social distancing guidelines implemented
  • Much importance is being given to the cleaning of the cars, as all cars are being sterilized internally and externally at the end of each rental, for the safety of the next client.
  • All the personnel and members of the company are provided with the necessary equipment (masks, gloves, antiseptic gel). Every client will receive an antiseptic substance before renting the car to avoid contamination of car surfaces

“We are all together in a joint effort to make your stay in our country safer!”
