Top tips for renting a car in Heraklion

  • Located on the island of Crete, Heraklion, Greece offers many historical attractions and cultural sights to see. This includes lots of architecture that dates all the way back to the Medieval period. After touring this capital city, you might want to stay at a luxurious resort such as Agios Nikolaos in Eastern Crete. About an hour away, it will be most convenient to have a hire car to get you there.
  • Heraklion International is one of the main and busiest airports in Greece. Tourists flying into this city will find it easy to rent a car. Several hire car companies including Avis, Hertz, and National are conveniently located at the airport. The hire car desks are within close proximity of baggage claim in the arrival hall.
  • With beautiful views of the sea, you’ll enjoy driving around Heraklion. Nonetheless, some of the challenges you might face include winding roads, narrow highways, and many one-way streets with limited space for passing. Additionally, mopeds are a popular mode of transportation in and around Heraklion, so you’ll want to be on the lookout for these vehicles. Just be prepared to take your time wherever you are going.
  • One of the largest cities in Greece, Heraklion has lots of traffic, but that doesn’t mean renting a car isn’t a good idea. Typically, the heaviest traffic will be in the city, especially downtown. Times to avoid would be early morning and again in early evening. You can pretty much avoid city traffic by taking the highway, which goes around downtown and has been divided to allow the traffic to flow better.
  • Book your rental car in Heraklion at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
