Twenty-nine years ago, at the age of 19, in 1989, the founder of Drive Plus Car Rentals,® Dimitris Gkiokas, felt the need to translate his love for the car into something more creative.  He felt a desire to  both  produce quality services in the strongest industry in Greece, that of Tourism, and one in which he had a great passion.


Thus, he began working professionally at a car rental company,  He soon climbed quickly and in just 3 months, took over responsibility for the company’s branch on the island of Paros.

DRIVE Plus car rentals® – Ενοικιάσεις Αυτοκινήτων

At that time, car rental business in Athens was experiencing a transition from the old tourism theory of maximising profits into the new more customer centred business. This new idea was one in which car rental companies were beginning to see the importance of creating a level of service which would place an emphasis on maintaining repeat customers and corporate loyalty. The most prominent ambassadors of this theory in the car rental industry were primarily the new generation of forward thinking young entrepreneurs!

Thus, it was the experience gained at this time working in the car rental business, which became the springboard for the then 20-year-old to open his own company and ultimately, become the recent founder of Drive Plus ® Car Rentals .

After proposing to set up a car rental company with the participation of his then employers, he decided to try and create a completely independent company, free of old ideas common practices of the establishment and their imposed strategies by multinationals in the field. With a new, customer-centred philosophy, he created a car hire company in Athens, with his partner who was a very experienced and skilled fighter in the industry, Mr. Antonis Karapanagiotis.
