Spring and the cities!!!!!!!!!!

We've got to admit it! Everyone who lives in a town is very jealous of someone who lives in an island. But, every Spring something changes. You see, this beautiful season, even the cities change mood. Rent a car in Athens and visit Acropolis, Thiseio and we promise you, you will meet many local people who prefer to drink a cold ouzo after they finish work under the hot sun, instead to go back home. A rental car in Thessaloniki will drive you very close to White Tower. Many friends and families gathered together have lunch, drink their beer and the children enjoy playing by the sea. In other places, as Kavala, Volos, Patras no one stays  at home, some friends and a tasteful ice cream is the best way to spend their  evening. If you are from the lucky ones you have booked very early your Summer holidays, you will note that Greece celebrate with every way the coming of the Summer. The team of www.direct2carrentals.com   is always there hang out with you to explore any city you choose with the best mood  until the moment you are leaving!

15th of August, Greece celebrates!!!!!!!!!

If your Summer holidays starts on August, another reason to visit Greece is the celebration of Dormition of Virgin Mary .  This day is considered the biggest religious event in Greece after Easter and Christmas for Greek Orthodox Christians.
It's a tradition to return to home villages, to connect with family, visit friends, and immerse themselves in the ancient rituals, culture, and practice of being Greek Orthodox. The villages squares are overcrowded because everywhere there are traditional celebration festivals.
If you want to live this experience, rent a car in Athens and visit Tinos, which is the most famous Church of Panagia Evangelistria. Many people visit these days that church in order to offer their prayers and votive offerings , to entreat a miracle of the Virgin Mary.
Rent a car in Rhodes and visit a small church, but overvisited at the top of a hill since many people during a difficult time of their life ask help from Panagia Ekatontapyliani and go there to thank her. For reaching there, you have to climb almost 340 steps but the view you will see from up there and the peace you are gonna feel inside you, will pay your tiredness.
Rent a car in Heraklion and visit the Monastery of Kalyviani. There you will pray with all the local people and afterwards you can take part in one of many cretan traditional festivals with local dishes, drinks, songs and dances at the surrounded villages.
For the end, we recommend you the Monastery of Panagia Soumela. Rent a car in Thessaloniki and drive at this worldwide famous monastery with many visitors every year, summer and winter .
Give yourself the opportunity  to take a moment to pause and reflect. What better than starting your trip easily without stress for your carhire??
It is an experience you will always remember and an excellent service from www.direct2carrentals.com you will always choose for every next travel you will organize. And.. this is a bet we always win!

Happy Easter Monday!!

The team of www.direct2carrentals.com wishes you a happy Easter Monday! It is another occasion of great joy to the world. All of us  thank God who has carried us safely throughout the Lent Season. In the midst of all of our busy and noisy lives, these holy days afford us the precious opportunity to slow down and spend some quiet moments in prayer and reflection. Those values are at the heart not just of the Christian faith, but of all faiths. From Judaism to Islam, Hinduism to Sikhism, there echoes a powerful call to serve our brothers and sisters. To keep in our hearts a deep and abiding compassion for all. And to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves. I hope we’re all able to take a moment to pause and reflect. To embrace our loved ones. To give thanks for our blessings. May the joys of Easter Day be very bright upon your way!
