Location information for Crete

Crete is probably the most popular island resort in Greece. The island is not only home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, but it is steeped in history. Car hire in Crete is a convenient way to explore this beautiful island and reach its hidden coves and beaches.

Crete attractions

Visitors can start their tour of Crete in the ancient city of Heraklion. Here, the famous Morosini Fountain, the Archaeological Museum and the Historical Museum of Crete ensure an interesting visit. One of the most popular seaside resorts is Agios Nikolaos, which is home to some of the best beaches on the island.

Crete excursions

A must-explore is the Kato Zakros, a famous archaeological site, and the drive along the Zakros Gorge is simply breathtaking. A day out on the Lasithi Plateau is a great getaway from the beach. Here, visitors will find apple orchards and almond trees along with hundreds of windmills ? an amazing sight.

Best time to visit

Crete enjoys a temperate climate. Peak tourist season is during the summer, with temperatures in July and August ranging between 25°C to 30°C. The mountains in the centre of the island are snow-capped throughout the year and provide a great contrast to the coastal areas. March through April is considered to be the rainy season, and the ocean can be too cold for swimming during these months.

Car rental in Crete

Although driving can be somewhat chaotic on Crete, the limited number of roads makes navigation easy and self-driving is better than relying on public transportation. Car rental in Crete is available at the airport or in the major cities of the island through both local and international rental agencies. Visitors should compare car hire options prior to making a booking.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
