Rolandos Rent a Car was established by Rolandos Karamanidis, who was born in Corfu. At the age of 16 he joined the commercial ships as a traninee mechanic. After 9 years the idea of the rental cars was already becoming real. Two more years of running the Car hire company during summer and returning to the sea during winter were enough as he met Maria and the family plans kept him away from the sea. Rolandos and Maria have two children: Eleftheria and Anestis.
Rolandos and Maria were running the Car hire company for 35 summer seasons. In 2015, Rolandos was ready for retirement and the second generation, Anestis and Eleftheria, took over.
Since then, “Mr. Presidenet” can relax and provide help when needed.
Jolanda is working with Rolandos since 1997 and as a member of Rolandos family is always ready to give the best service to Rolandos’ customers.

Rolandos rent a car was established in Corfu town, next to the Ionian university, in 1980. It was the early years of tourism in Corfu, and Greece in general.
From Corfu town they had the chance to cooperate with hotel receptions mostly and deliver the cars literally everywhere on the island.
Rolandos first fleet was composed by the little Fiat 126, the Fiat 127 and Yugo Zastava and the Suzuki jeep LJ80.
All cars were parked on the road, as it was not so busy then. Cleaning was made by hand for the extrerior by also for the interior of the cars.
Our Corfu Town office is now located just 350 meters from Corfu Airport.
In 1991, Rolandos moved to Agios Gordios, the tourist resort located closest to Rolandos hometown, Kouramaded village. Our office is the first Car rental company based in Agios Gordios.
Our first location in the heart of the village, was next to Linda’s restaurant where Rolandos was located for 6 years. However, parking in this location was very tight and Rolandos had to move.
In 1997 Rolandos’ office moved to our own premisses opposite Agios Gordios bus stop, with private underground garage and cleaning equipment.
