Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Crete, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 12 July 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Crete?

    Car hire in Crete comes with the caveat that you need to be at least 21. This doesn’t mean you can hire any car, though – many Crete car hire companies charge a young driver surcharge if you’re under 25; you’ll also have to wait till you’re 25 if you want passenger van hire or luxury car hire in Crete. As part of Greece, Crete is subject to EU policy, so you can use a valid UK driver’s licence to drive here; you won’t need an International Driving Permit. You can book cheap car hire in Crete right here through Cheapflights.

  • What are the rules for driving in Crete?

    When you hire cars in Crete, you’ll have to drive on the right, so if you’re not enticed by the idea of changing gears with your right hand, better get an automatic. Also be aware of the speed limits and drink-driving laws on the island when considering car hire in Crete. The speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km per hour (about 30 mph), but on motorways you’re limited to 90 km per hour (about 56 mph) . The drink driving limit is 0.5 mg per 100 ml. Check in with the local authorities for law changes when you hire cars in Crete.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Crete?

    Crete has the stereotypical warm Mediterranean climate, and being an island, it makes for a great place to go on rural road trips. Your choice of car hire in Crete is thus very wide – anything from a compact SUV to a convertible will be suitable. However, if you’re going to spend most of your time in one of the towns, it’s perhaps better to go for economy car hire and get something small and compact, as the streets in the older districts are narrow. For motorway cruising between towns, choose a saloon or sedan. Larger tour groups can get a multi-seater or a minibus for their Crete car hire.

  • Where are the best places to park in Crete?

    You’re free to park in the streets in most Cretan cities, although they can sometimes be hard to find during peak holiday season in the downtown and beachfront areas. To grab the free spots, it’s best to arrive early, but if you can’t find any street parking, there are plenty of commercial car parks that only charge a couple of euros for 2 hours. In the smaller cities, you can also park a little way from the central district, in a quieter area, and take a leisurely walk downtown. This free parking contributes nicely to cheap car hire in Crete.

  • What is the cheapest hire car found in Crete?

  • Can I rent a car for a month in Crete?

    Typically, how long you can hire a car for depends on the inventory of the supplier. For Crete however, it is certainly possible to rent a car for an entire month.
