Hooray! I have just booked a car with Island Cars. A week from 5th August for a small car is 327 euros. Thanks for all the help.

I spoke too soon. Between getting their email and confirming they said that the car was no longer available. Looks like we are destined to fail on this one!

Perhaps someone offered more money - it wouldn't be the first time!

Keels and Wheels were recommended in another post (Slartibartfast re Boat Hire). I have 2 trips planned this year and have booked Poppy cars for the second trip, but thought I would try Keels and Wheels. Has anyone any experience of them for an airport pickup? Their quote is very competitive.

regards

We used them some years ago after they were recommended to us by the owners of the property we were renting. They both met us at the airport full of apologies as the car we'd arranged to hire had been damaged by previous hirers so it was being repaired at the beginning of our hire period. We were given their own little 4 x 4 until it was sorted which they then delivered to us.

Happy to give a :grin: and :finga: they're a very nice friendly couple.
