Driving in Crete


When it comes to magnificent island vacations with the infrastructure to accommodate a comfortable tour by car rental, nothing beats the Greek island of Crete.  All of the diverse landscape of Crete, hailed by many as the most beautiful island on earth, is traversable by car rental.  Just 260 km long and 60 km wide, you can enjoy the sun and sand on Crete, as well as fertile coastal plains, rugged mountainous terrain, quiet villages, and fully modern and bustling metropolises.  Pick up your Crete car rental from Heraklion Airport.

Driving a car rental in Crete is the best way to take in all the wonderful scenery of the island.  Though driving distances between attractions can often be long and the drive time is made even longer by winding mountain roads, if you can appreciate the perspective that getting there is half the fun they you will thoroughly enjoy your stay in Crete.  

In addition to landscapes dotted with vineyards, olive groves, craggy beaches, and dramatic gorges, any tour of Crete by car rental should definitely include the island's ancient ruins.  Visit the Palace of Knossos, the ruins of Phaistos, Gortys, and the Palace of Malia, or the historic monasteries scattered across Crete.  You should also pay a visit to the amazing archaeological and historical museums of Crete.  The cities of Chania, Rethymnon, and Heraklion each have excellent museums, and there are yet more, smaller museums located outside the cities.

Get the most out of your stay on the island of Crete with a cheap car rental.  We offer the lowest rates on car rentals from Heraklion Airport, or any of several other popular pick up locations across the island.  Visit our Greece location page to view a full listing of all our available car rental pick up locations in Greece.  You can make your reservation using the booking engine at the top of any page.
