Important information about Heraklion car hire

There are nearly ten rental car locations in Heraklion, making it quite possible for you to grab a rental car at any point during your visit to the city. However, you may want the car for the duration of the trip, since securing a Heraklion car rental is a good way to ensure you have access to everything the city has to offer—as well as many sites outside city limits. With a range of city paid parking places available throughout the various neighbourhoods, adjacent to popular travel sites, you can easily park and then explore locations of interest, such as the Historical Museum of Crete and the Natural History Museum of Crete. Maybe try parking a few streets away from these popular sites, since parking near these premier locations can be tougher. What’s more, the city also boast access to major roadways like Leof. Knosou and E75, both of which are useful if you want to take cheap hired cars in Heraklion outside city limits.

With a great number of parking places available throughout the city, and a relaxed tempo of life, driving a cheap car rental in Heraklion is an easy and effective way to explore the area. In fact, the city prides itself on its lack of rush hours. So, you can either drive around the ancient metropolis, or you can park and hop out of the car to explore some walkable neighbourhoods, like the area around Loggia. When you’re ready to explore beyond Heraklion, hop on the road and check out the Cave of Zeus in Diktaion Andron, or the Plateau of Lassithi. Both locations are under a couple of hours with a people carrier rental from Heraklion.

If your plan is to grab one of the hired cars in Heraklion that are available, you’ll want to spend a little time in advance of your trip getting familiar with some of the local laws and guidelines for driving in Greece. For instance, all individuals riding in Heraklion car rentals, including the driver, are required to wear a seat belt. Additionally, if you are planning a night out at some of the local bars, you will want to be aware that individuals who have a BAC—or, blood alcohol content—that is 0.05% or higher are prohibited from operating a motor vehicle. This drops to 0.02% for drivers with fewer than a couple of years’ experience driving. You’ll also want to pay attention to the posted speed limits. Limits on the island of Crete are a little lower than what may be expected in the U.S. or in main-land Europe. These speed allowances may even change without any immediately obvious reason. That said, it is always best to check with the department of motor vehicles for the city to learn of any laws that may have changed recently.

When you’re planning to grab a rental car in Heraklion, you’ll want to be sure you have your paperwork in order. Upon check-in with the car rental company, all prospective renters must furnish a passport, a government-granted driving license and an IDP (otherwise called an International Driver’s Permit). What’s more, hired cars in Heraklion can only be secured if a major credit card has been supplied. The credit card should have an available balance that is significant. Drivers must also be 21 years old or older.
