Thessaloniki Car HireThessaloniki, Thessalonica, or Salonica is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of the Greek region of Macedonia. Its honorific title is literally "co-capital", a reference to its historical status as the "co-reigning" city of the Byzantine Empire, alongside Constantinople. According to the 2001 census, the municipality of Thessaloniki had a population of 363,987. The entire Thessaloniki Urban Area had a population of 763,468.

Thessaloniki is Greece's second major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre, and a major transportation hub for the rest of southeastern Europe; its commercial port is also of great importance for Greece and its southeast European hinterland.

Professional and modern

The Udrive website is very easy to use. Although there are other similar websites offering comparative prices, I found many of them difficult to read. I like the layout of this website, and found the rental conditions actually easy to read and understand, compared to most other agencies incomprehensible legal speak. This gave me the confidence to believe i knew what I was signing up for. My rental was 62 days, and I needed a large vehicle to accommodate relatives we were visiting, so it wasn't cheap. 

I did not want to get stuck with an extra $30 per day for insurance or something, when you're already at the airport and have no choice. However, the terms were clear. One of the customer service people from Udrive also have good advice on the most economical way to reduce our excess, which saved us a fortune. 

The vehicle was exactly as promised, and we had a great trip. Thanks Udrive.
