Car hire in Crete
Hiring a car in Crete
Crete is the largest of Greece's islands and as such has a lot to offer no matter what your ideal holiday. With glorious beaches, a great nightlife, ancient ruins and stunning mountains, there is something for everyone and the typically hot and sunny weather ensure you can explore everything.
Driving will allow you to take in the beauty and history of the Greek island, as the National Road in northern Crete will take you from Ághios Nikólaos through Heraklion, Rethymnon and Chania before ending up in Kastelli. Southern Crete is very different, with roads becoming narrower and featuring blind bends, meaning extra care should be taken.

Where to pick up your car
You can pick up your hire car from a couple of different places depending on where you are staying in Crete. If you're arriving at Chania Airport (CHQ), you don't need to go further than the arrivals hall to find the car hire desks. The same goes for Heraklion Airport (HER), which is helpful as it is the second largest airport in Greece and can be very busy. Whichever airport you arrive at, collecting your car once you've picked up your luggage means you can get on with your holiday straight away.
