Review of Chris Hodges about our office at Santorini - Airport Powered by Google™
Second time I have used centauro now, best hire company I have used by far. If you book direct with them, as I did, it's very clear what prices are and what's included. I paid premium and everything was included, just pick up key and go , no deposit, just a small fuel deposit you get back if return with fuel at correct level . Price paid was very competitive. The office is 5 min away from airport and shuttle bus is regular , look for the yellow centauro van :) Thanks too all staff there, keep up the good work, your hard work is appreciated , stress free way to hire a car !
Review of John Burns about our office at Santorini - Airport Powered by Google™
On arrival at Santorini Airport the usual large rental companies had no car availability, so found centauro, at short notice a car was provided at a very competitive price, the agent who dealt with me was professional and personable and I would even say she went above and beyond to help. The daily insurance rate I found to be uncompetitive so choose to leave the large deposit for any potential damage that might occur, this was returned to me with no issue. Based on this experience I will certainly consider using centauro for future rentals. The agent who dealt with me was Styliani, I didn't get the chance to thank her when I returned the car so through this forum can I sincerely thank you for your humanity good humour and understanding, I wish you good health and contentment in your future.

Very friendly stuff with a great command of english, the car of our choice wasn't available, so we were offered an upgrade. The office is 2 mins drive away from the airport, the shuttle bus waited for our arrival and function very smoothly.
Review of Kostis about our office at Santorini - Airport Powered by Google™
all fine! new cars, great availability even in the high season, easy to book. the stuff is very kind despite the huge workload. Important: as I was reading before my booking a few negative comments regarding to credit card deposits etc, I was a bit worried. So, in my experience, my advice will be the following: please CALCULATE additionally, 20-25 euros / day for FULL insurance for the car. Then, you will not need to secure a deposit in your credit card because the car will be fully covered throughout your rental period. Otherwise, it gets complicated.. Personally, I opted at the desk for the full insurance and all was perfect. Additionally, you will also be charged a returnable FUEL surcharge (65 euros). If you return the car with the same amount if fuel, you will get the 65 euros back to your account/card within a couple of (working)days. To sum it up: 1. ADD 20-25 euros/day at the desk for FULL insurance. 2. Prepare to deposit (through card payment) 65 euros (in my case) which you will get it back after you return the car.

Santorini tourist information
Santorini is one of Greece’s most beautiful and unique islands, noted for its peculiar moon crescent shape and the wide variety of places you can visit: towns, beaches, archaeological sites and much more.
What to see in Santorini
It is the capital of the island, a town full of beauty where white houses with blue roofs stand out. It is located on the edge of a cliff facing the sea, so the views from this city are impressive, especially at sunset. Do not miss the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral and the Catholic Cathedral.
Firostefani and Imerovigli
Among the many villages that you can visit on the island, there is Firostefani, which stands out for its ancient Byzantine monastery and restaurants that literally hang over the sea. In Imerovigli you need to visit the Skaros Rock, a Venetian castle that was destroyed by an earthquake in the 19th century.
Other beautiful and well-known towns, such as Exo Gonia, Oia and Pyrgos, are also a must.
Museums and archaeological remains
If you like history, culture or art, in this Greek island you can visit many museums, where you can expand your knowledge and satisfy your curiosity. Visit, among others, the Prehistoric Museum, the Wine Museum, the Megaron Gyzi Museum and the Bellonio Cultural Center.
On the other hand, Santorini is the perfect place if you like to visit archaeological sites, since you can find sites and remains in the villages of Profitis Elias, Vlihada, Arhea Thira, Pyrgos and Thermi. Do not miss the Akrotiri site, where you can see the remains of the ancient Minoan civilization.
The Nea Kameni and Palea volcanoes
You can go on a trip to the volcano, where you can explore solidified lava trails, see small holes through which sulfur vapor comes out, bathe in hot springs and even look out to its crater. An experience that, without a doubt, will not leave you indifferent.
Three volcanic stone beaches are the most outstanding: The Red Beach (Kokkini Paralia), where huge reddish stone cliffs stand out; the White Beach, with cliffs of almost completely white rocks; Kamari Black Beach, the most famous of the island and perfect to go with family and, finally, we recommend Vlychada Beach.
Driving route through Santorini.
Now that you know the main attractions, we recommend you to first travel east, since it is where the airport is, visit cities like Perissa and Kamari and enjoy some of their many volcanic stone beaches. In the west, on the other hand, go visit Fira, Imerovigli and Oia, where we recommend you to enjoy an unforgettable sunset. In this area, you can also go on a trip to Nea Kameni and visit some nearby beaches, such as the Red Beach.
Some typical dishes must be mentioned, such as the souvlaki, a recipe similar to the famous Moorish skewer; the dolmadaia, a roll of rice wrapped with grape leaves and gyros, similar to kebab. Fish, Greek yoghurts and cheese, especially goat cheese, are also typical. If we talk about desserts, the Baklavas stand out, which are vanilla, honey and almond cakes, and the Kourabiédes, almond cakes flavored with Ouzo liqueur.
