When considering car hire in Rhodes, there are a couple of things you need to be aware of before booking your car hire and a few requirements to meet. To start with, you generally won't be able to hire a car in Rhodes unless you're at least 21 and have had a licence for at least one year. If you're under the age of 25, you're likely to be charged an additional fee for being a young driver. If you've booked your hired car online before arriving, remember to keep your confirmation details with you, as well as the same credit card used to make the online booking; the owner of the card must be present when picking up the vehicle. If your driving licence doesn't have Latin characters, you'll need an International Driving Permit. Please also bring up-to-date photo identification, preferably a passport.
To ensure your safety even while operating a cheap car hire in Rhodes, it's important to be aware of local driving rules. Stay current with the local department of motor vehicles, so you're aware of any updates to driving laws in Rhodes. You'll drive your hired car on the right-hand side of the road in Rhodes and pass on the left, all occupants of the car must wear seatbelts at all times and if your child is under the age of 11 or shorter than 135 cm, they won't be allowed to be seated in the car without a suitable car seat. If you're planning on hitting the town and having a night out, we suggest leaving your car hire at your Rhodes accommodation. Drinking and driving is enforced heavily in Greece and anything over 0.05% could lead to time in jail and/or a heavy fine.
Rhodes is considered one of the most scenic Greek islands, and relying on a car hire to explore Rhodes is a must. You'll find the quality of driving is usually very good, but the roads can be quite narrow. With this in mind, consider opting for cheap car hire with a smaller frame; mini or compact models like a Toyota Aygo, Suzuki Celerio or Hyundai i20 would make navigating the local roads a lot simpler.
You'll be glad to know that most of the parking in Rhodes, with the exception of Old Town and in the city centre, is free. Parking in the city centre can be a challenge, rather park further away and walk or use public transport to get around the city. In Rhodes Town, you'll find road markings that are colour-coded indicating the requirements for parking. White is free, blue means you need a paid ticket and yellow lines are "no parking" zones.
