Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Crete?

As public transportation in more remote areas isn’t widely used, car rental in Crete is definitely worthwhile. You will be able to easily get from the north coast to the south with cheap car rental options that can assist not only with providing the best car for your travel plans, but also provide add-ons such as Sat Nav to help you navigate off the beaten track. The beaches of the island are highly popular and some of them can be over-crowded. When you a hire a car in Crete you have the freedom to explore some of the less crowded, but equally beautiful beaches and surrounding villages. On the south coast of the island you can explore Frangokastello Beach or Kiani Akti – both stunning white sand beaches. On the west of the island there is Kastelli Beach which is primarily a pebbled coast, offering contrasting landscapes. Other gems to visit with your car rental in Crete include some of the remote villages such as Milatos or Bali. Take your car rental inland and explore some mountain trail roads that will offer spectacular views and relaxing scenic drives.


Crete car hire information

Car rental in Crete will give you a wonderfully free opportunity to explore this Greek Island and make the most of your time. You will need to get acclimated to driving on the right hand side of the road and be aware of a few conditions that may seem daunting at first, but will soon make the experience lots of fun. When booking cheap car hire in Crete consider a 4x4 if you plan to venture into mountain terrain as some of the roads can be very narrow and winding. The major towns will have decent road maintenance but quieter villages often have unexpected surprises, including sharp corners on roads, no signage in English or even animals crossing the road. There are many wide, newer roads to venture on with your car hire which may give you a sense of relief if traversing the coast lines. Most petrol stations will close in the early evening unless you are on a highway, so make sure you have enough fuel to get to your next destination before setting out on longer trips with your car hire.

If you are an EU citizen you will be quite familiar with many of the traffic laws in Crete. The difference is the relaxed attitude of many of the locals. Don’t let this distract you from the fact that the traffic laws are there for a reason and should be adhered to at all times. Remain buckled up in the front and rear of the car, with children under 150cm in appropriate car seats. Do not drive under the influence and stick to the speed limits and you will be fine.

When considering car rental in Crete you will actually need an International Drivers Permit. Your UK driver’s license will not be enough. This, along with your passport and a credit card three months off from expiry should be all the documentation you need. If you are paying with debit card you may be asked to show proof of residence. Take payment terms into account with car hire comparison.
