Shair Amiri

We hired an amazing Jeep wrangler. The staff was extremely helpful and stayed till late to accommodate our vehicle. By far the most trust worthy, cheap, and friendly car rental place I’ve even been to.

We had a fantastic experience with Sterling Rental Cars in Crete, and I want to express my gratitude to Iris and her team. Booking was easy, and Iris greeted us warmly upon arrival. The car was clean and reliable, making our trip hassle-free. Iris and her team's friendly service made us feel like valued guests. I highly recommend Sterling Rental Cars in Crete. Thanks, Iris, for making our vacation great!

We rented a Fiat Panda with Sterling Rentals for our stay in Crete. Upon arrival, a short rental agreement was completed, we got the full insurance (without excess) and we paid for the car in cash. The car was also briefly inspected with us and any scratches, bumps etc were noted. We had no issues with the car and it was perfect to get around the island. Unfortunately we added a new scratch to the car, but this was no problem at all since we got the full insurance. Before returning the car we went to a self service car wash, which was much appreciated by Sterling Rentals and we filled petrol to the same amount as when we got the car. It was our first time renting a car abroad and we had a great experience with Sterling Rentals! Highly recommended!

I have been renting my cars for 7 years from the Sterling agency, and you can trust these people who are true professionals. You will be welcomed by Yanis or his father Georges, they will be able to advise you and make you the best offers. Seriousness and good humor will be there. Have a good stay.
