By Car

From data supplied by Eurostat, we know that the privately owned passenger vehicle or car remains the most popular transportation means for going on holiday in nearly every E.U. Member-State.

Greece is a country where four-wheel enthusiasts are given the opportunity to enjoy their travels by car, especially on the mainland, but also on the larger islands such as Crete, Rhodes, Lesbos, Corfu, etc. However, a tourist is also able to rent a car in any region in Greece, even on the smallest islands, by rental companies that you will come across wherever you go.

The car has an unbreakable relationship with the daily lives of the Greeks. And the result is that in Greece you can find almost whatever you need without much difficulty.

Traveling by car amongst other things makes it easy to travel around in any weather condition, summer or winter. The road network and road-signs in Greece are somewhat problematic and increased attention is needed, especially driving along the rural road network.

Check the vehicle that you will be using so that it will be in the best possible condition and your trip can therefore be enjoyable and above all… safe!

Schedule your trip correctly and enjoy it from the beginning!
