Let us introduce ourselves!

We are Nikos & Georgia, a happy Greek couple who run Evia Rent-a-Car  – as well as other tourism related projects such as the very popular Writers’ Retreats in GreeceEvia Private Tours, Evia Private Transfers, Evia Retreats and the mighty Greek Taxi in the amazing island of Evia.

We are going to organise your transportation, host you, treat you, spoil you, cook for you, show you around and eventually, make you feel like home.

Nikos-Georgia

From April 2012 until February 2019, we travelled overland full-time, first in a Suzuki Grand Vitara 4X4 and then in a self-converted Toyota HiAce camper-van. Through the Pin Project -our visionary travel project to put pins in the global map- we have visited more than 50 countries in Africa, Europe & America. We have experienced a unique mix of kindness & hospitality from the vast majority of local people regardless of their culture, skin colour, religion, social status, education, etc.

We have stayed & worked in 5-star safari lodges in Tanzania & Zimbabwe, a fishing lodge in Canada, a mountain lodge in Ecuador, a boutique hotel/ art space in Mexico, a guesthouse in Perú, a rafting company in Canada as well as countless local houses, farmsteads and campgrounds.

In March 2019, we decided to retire from our long trip around the world, settle down in our homeland & dedicate ourselves to the tourism & hospitality sector.

To be honest, we have a good idea of what makes up great hospitality. 

Actually, we love hospitality like no other. We do love luxury as well. 

Indeed, we enjoy to deal with the concept of luxurious vacations from a whole different perspective.

For us, luxury is not a swimming pool, neither a limousine but a solid experience based on human interaction and the immersion to the local culture.

A glass of home-made wine that you can share with your other half during sunset in an untouched location where you literally feel like home is rather pure luxury.

We are crafting our personalised rental services in such a way that you will go back home full of unique, unparalleled memories. 

We have one single rule: to operate without the typical rules. No deposits, no card fees, no deadlines, not a typical car rental company!

On top of that, we organise, prepare & schedule everything with smilemeraki & filotimo

Meraki is the word that we Greeks use to describe what happens when you leave a piece of yourself -your soul, creativity & love- in whatever you do.

On the other hand, filotimo is considered to be the highest of all Greek virtues, the standards for family and social living. In its simplest form, the term means “doing good”. For a Greek, it is essentially a way of life. It includes values such as honour, justice, courage, dignity, pride, self sacrifice, respect, freedom, gratitude and hospitality!

It is the words we use as our most important “ingredients” in the creation of memorable services.

Our principal purpose is to create for you an outstanding experience beyond the typical tour stereotypes.

Our commitment is to provide the highest level of service so you can get the most out of your transfer.

Our hope & wish is to see you coming back in Greece.
