I know that used cars are dearer than in UK but does this apply to buying new as well?
I have also heard that there are ex hire sales in the winter, are these auctions or just normal sales?

Don't know about ex hire cars but new cars (although they have discounted them recently) are still more expensive than UK also the price you see is for a basic model, we looked at a Jeep Cherokee which was priced at 37,000 euro's when the extras were added it came to 42,000 euro's.

New car prices are comparable with UK prices but you have to look to Athens or Thessoloniki to find deals, not so difficult cos it's a nice away holiday.... + you have to haggle like a Greek and not stay quiet like a UK mouse to get a good deal....

As said earlier, prices vary - have a look at internet info on car buying in Greece and make sure you can fulfil the criteria if you want to be legal. There are many pitfalls here. However - price comparison - small Hyundai in Corfu - 10,000 + Euro = in England - £6,000+ .
Do the google thing and make your own mind up!
Happy exploring (maybe?????)

Many car hire companies sell their cars off after a couple of years- you can contact them direct and can see them on forecourts etc. in winter- don't think there is any auction however, all done individually.

I looked at ex-hire cars in the Spring and in the end decided that they were very expensive and bought a new Fiat as it seemed much better value. i.e. I saw a rather battered ex-rental Panda with about 48,000 klms on the clock and the interior was in bad shape for 5000 euros and my brand new one was 9000 euros (with a two year warranty). I was also offered a 1995 Renault Clio with 125,000 on the clock for 2000 euros!!
