    Fantastic car hire, highly recommend
    Recently hired a car from Simila based on reviews on here, and so pleased we did - the service and communication were first class. Easy to set up with small deposit, and options to pay balance, and no additional credit card security. Our flight in was delayed by an hour or so but kept in touch with Simon who was there with the car as we came through and we were driving away within minutes. Simon provided excellent service which included great advice on places to go and things to see while in Cyprus. Drop off of the car was equally easy. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely recommend.

    Would definitely recommend
    We've had some unforeseeable car trouble, but were given another car with no hesitation. We also got a lot of useful tips for what to see and where to go, and the communication in general was great. Also, there were no hidden costs or anything like that, so the price you agree on in the beginning is what you pay 👍
    Thank you

    Friendly, honest easy
    We pre-booked a car for ten days, pick up and drop off at pafos airport. We were met outside straight away and the same with the drop of, there were no problems and very professional and friendly service. There were no extra costs like a lot of other companies so no nasty surprises. You also get information and places to go and things to see which if you haven't been to Cyprus before is invaluable. I will without any doubt use Simila when I return to Cyprus and will happily recommend them to anybody, excellent service.

    Excellent service and very friendly
    We hired one of the new Kia’s for 3 days to explore Paphos. Everyone was so friendly and helpful when we went into enquire, especially Raimonda and Simon. Great set up firstly, with the car being dropped at our hotel and secondly the way they set up a WhatsApp group between us and them to communicate, share links and maps of places to visit and eat. Definitely recommend Simila and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thank you guys🙂

    Fantastic Company
    Fantastic company. Easy to work with. We hired a car for 3 days. Competitive and affordable. Lots of information provided about Cyprus with inspiration for trips and visits and lots of offers available on attractions. If in Paphos, Cyprus and need car hire definitely should be the first place you go.

    Top class
    I hired this Nissan note automatic car for me and my partner to help us travel around for our holiday sight seeing. From start to finish the service was great as handed over all money on the day of arrival which was great! from when the driver Simon picked us up from the airport and happily drove us to our hotel. Simon was very helpful with information and discounts on places to visit etc and the country itself as never been to Cyprus. sent me the company chat link, if I needed any help, To agreeing a time to drop off the car in a different town. Top class service!

Great service from Simon and the team once again, car was immaculate, communication and information right from the start was second to none, third time we have used Simila, would recommend to anyone visiting Paphos who wishes to hire a good quality vehicle from a very excellent company. See you again on our next holiday. Dale & Lydia.

Like other reviewers in these posts, I was reluctant to believe that Simila could be as good as reviews claimed. However, based on the positive reviews I took a leap of faith and can confirm the service levels were great and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Simon & Julie are great communicators and this helped to reassure me that vehicle delivery would be smooth. Furthermore, all the paperwork was a breeze with their assistance. The vehicle was clean and in good condition and the price was reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services.

Simon and his assistant Julie are from other dimension. Great service, tips and real maps gives you best of old school feeling. Nice brand new automatic smallish KIA Picanto will serve you well and it's great help if you are not used to drive on the left side of the road and seat on the right side. At the end on Simon's name you get good discounts on some places/areas you might like to visit.
All in all geat service altogether!

We visited a few car hire places before going into simila, and we are so glad we did, Simon was friendly, informative and we had a great customer service experience, he meet our needs and some, we didn't get ripped off. If your staying in paphos or surrounding area and you want to hire a car then simila for me is the only place to go.

We rented a car with Simila at the end of May-24. The car booked was a Nissan Note for 590 EUR (2 weeks). The price was on the high side versus competitors but I booked on the basis on online reviews. Pick up was easy enough - from the EKO garage outside the airport. We were met by Simon who showed us the car. Drop off was also trouble-free. The car we actually got was actually a Nissan Wingroad. It was a few years old with 65,000km on the clock and some battle scars. It was certainly older than the vast majority of cars I have rented but there are pro/cons to this in Cyprus! So overall the experience was okay. The USP of Simila is the personal service, lack of deposit and low excess (200 EUR). So to determine if they are the right choice for you depends on how much these things mean to you individually. Personally I won't be using them again since I don't appreciate the overly defensive and somewhat aggressive response from the company to my very fair and honest review (on TrustPilot - but same as this). Companies need to be able to take onboard the feedback they get - positive and negative - Simila are clearly not able to do this.

Second time using Simila and it was once again a great experience, easy to arrange, nice car, simple collection and drop off at the airport - don’t go anywhere else for car rentals, I won’t ! Thanks to the Simila team from me and Karen :)
