Car and staff support
We had a puncture on our holiday, which is very possible given state of Lesvos roads, and were told by Hertz we had to get it fixed ourselves - pretty disconcerting when you are on holiday and don't speak Greek! As it was a slow puncture we were able to drive back to our holiday accommodation and , thanks to excellent support from the staff there, all then went smoothly, but we shudder to think how
hard our situation would have been if the tyre had suddenly gone flat when we were on a very isolated part of the island ( perhaps where mobiles don't work). However at least the electronic system on the car did warn us of a problem in good time. Suspect the local Hertz people would not have operated some sort of 'rescue service' for tourists stranded in this way, but it would have been reassuring to know that they would!
