Car hires in Santorini: practical information

Where to rent a car in Santorini



Planning a holiday in Santorini? The best way to experience this beautiful island is with a car hire. Choose from a number of car hire agencies at Santorini Airport, or pick up a rental in town. Scooters are also popular to hire, especially among tourists, just be careful when driving.

Driving in Santorini: parking and other tips

Be very patient and cautious when driving with your car hire in Santorini. The roads around the island are particularly narrow, especially in Fira, to take care. Also keep in mind that some villages don’t have petrol stations, such as Oia, so always make sure to keep your tank on the full side.

Parking can be tricky so make sure that your hotel in Santorini offers complimentary parking.

Road trips from Santorini: what to do, what to see

Fira, Santorini

Fira

Fira is a pretty stunning town. It’s the centre of life in Santorini, thanks to its central location, which makes it the perfect base for making day trips to other parts of the island with your Santorini rent car. Getting around the town is half the fun, so why not leave your rental car behind and take a donkey instead!

Red Beach

Red Beach

The Red Beach is really something special. There are only a few beaches like this in the world, red in colour due to the iron-rich rocks in the nearby cliffs. During the summer, it can get quite crowded but it’s still worth going. Bring your goggles and snorkel, this place is prefect for some shallow diving.

Akrotiri

Akrotiri

Akrotiri is a must-see. Just like Pompeii, this ancient Minoan town was preserved in volcanic ash and is one of Santorini’s must-sees. The ruins are extremely well preserved, even some of the ancient floors are still visible.
