Good service with a fair price and a smilePros: The car was not the one advertised on the website and we fell into the standard trap of "similar". In fact, there was only one car of our category and it was a little Hyundai which is not as good as the Fiesta which was the promoted vehicle. Don't believe what you see in the ads! We should have known this by nowCons: The policy is NOT tank full to tank full - despite what the ads say. It's the standard is it "half full or nearly half or less than half" which is really irritating. With Enterprise, everything is done with a smile but, regardless, terms and conditions which are not there should not be advertised.
The Greek coastal city of Preveza lies with the Ambracian Gulf to the east and the Ionian Sea to the west. In the absence of strong public transportation links, the most practical and convenient way to discover the city, surrounding coastline and wider region is with car hire in Preveza. Set your own schedule to explore far-flung ancient places like Patra, 102 miles south via Ionia Odos/A5, or the country’s second city, Thessaloniki, which lies about 218 miles north-east via Egnatia Odos/A2.
Flying into Aktion National Airport (PVK) will leave you just 5 miles shy of the city centre and is a perfect location from which to get your car hire in Preveza. There is a good selection of providers such as GREEN MOTION, Thrifty and Budget, with whom you can make a reservation or pick up a car on the fly. Many of them including those listed here offer a shuttle service to their individual car hire areas. After landing, you can seek assistance at an information point or follow directions to find the shuttle collection area outside the terminal.
There are several key areas around Preveza which are vulnerable to congestion during the morning and evening rush hour periods. E55 (west) and Ioanninon/EO Philippiadas Prevezas (east), the two primary roads inbound and outbound of the city centre, are key areas, but vehicular traffic through the Aktio-Preveza Undersea Tunnel is also a serious concern in both directions during these periods. Expect high pedestrian and motorcycle traffic daily in the city centre, especially in the highly commercialised area around Foros Prevezas Park, which sees a dramatic increase at the peak of tourist season during the months of June to August.
The morning rush should peak from 07:00 to 08:00 while the critical evening period will be from 19:00 to 20:00 along the two primary roads which skirt the coastline of Preveza and run through the Aktio-Preveza Tunnel. High volumes of summer traffic can extend both rush hour periods by at least one hour and also affect afternoon patterns between 13:00 and 15:00. This will be most problematic near coastal beaches and retail centres, so plan your travel schedule to bypass or avoid heavy congestion whenever possible.
