Goldcar hire company

Postby woody » Mon Jun 04, 2018 9:28 pm

Hello all,
Has anyone here used Goldcar car rentals near Heraklion airport.
I've read on their web-site, upon arrive I need to make my way to the car park coming out of the airport to the right, then I need to wait for a shuttle bus to their office not to far away.
My question is, will there be somebody there outside the arrivals hall holding a card or similar with my name on it to escort us to said shuttle bus.

Thanks in advance

I've not used this company but my understanding of their web site is that you make your own way to where the shuttle bus stops and wait there for it. I wouldn't expect there to be anybody waiting outside arrivals but you could phone them to check +30 2811810265. There is a small video just below the picture of Heraklion harbour that shows you where to go.

Woody, are you familiar with the arrivals area at Heraklion Airport? As you emerge from the baggage collection area into the small hall where most of the car hire desks are located, there are usually loads of reps holding up cards with names/companies etc, so chances are there should be someone with a Goldcar notice waiting for you. But if not, head for the pedestrian gate on to the main road, straight in front of you, and walk to your right where you should find the bus. In the worst case scenario you can walk on down that road to the Goldcar office, as it's located near the cargo sheds opposite the end of the runway. However, as Warwick suggests, I would give them a call to confirm arrangements, especially if you are arriving at a busy time of day.

Hi I have used Gold Car in the past at Chania Airport and they were reliable and did meet in the entrance hall there like a lot of companies . Car was very good only problem we had was their credit card system was playing up as was day before Greek Good Friday and everyone was using so they couldn't get the payment through spent ages in the office when we wanted to get to a supermarket. Also and only noted when I arrived they sell you a tank of petrol rather than full return full etc which I didn't like but may have changed . Other than that a very professional company.
