Car hire in Santorini
Hiring a car in Santorini
The Greek island of Santorini - also known as Thira - is absolutely beautiful, especially if you are lucky enough to arrive by boat. With stunning beaches, black lava cliffs that feature sheer drops that vanish into blue waters, and plenty of sunshine, it's no wonder Santorini is such a popular destination.
As well as the stunning views and great weather, you'll also find some truly interesting archeological sites. These will give you insight into the island's past and provide a great break away from the beach when you want a more varied holiday.
The easiest way to get around the island is by car, which means car hire is the best idea. Public transport can be a bit sporadic and infrequent, so enjoy the freedom that car hire gives you and set out on your own Santorini adventure.
What you need to know
There are a dozen different car hire companies to choose from once you arrive on Santorini. However, because the island is such a popular destination, you may find that you cannot get the vehicle you want when you arrive. This is why it is important to book before you travel, as this will secure the car of your choice and mean you get the best price.
You can book easily and quickly through Holiday Autos' booking tool, which will show you all the cars available during your trip. There are no hidden costs and you'll not be subjected to credit card fees. To ensure peace of mind, you'll also get 24/7 support and free cancellation.
Where to pick up your car
Those flying into Santorini will be able to get on with their holiday almost as soon as they land, as car hire companies operate at Santorini National Airport (JTR). You'll find the car hire desks within the arrivals hall of both terminals for most of the car rental companies at the airport. Other companies offer a meet and greet service to help you find your pick up point.
