It happened to many of our clients before. What was supposed to be a single visit has turned into an ongoing affair with the city.

Is there a better way to discover distant cities than driving around in a reliable and comfortable car?

Who wants to be at the mercy of public transport in a foreign country? Freedom and autonomy of having a private vehicle just for you and your family can not be matched. Travel freely. Move around the island at your pace and in style. Stick to only your timetable and itinerary.

However, moving around the city by driving a car can be a daunting experience. Will the car hire agency try to sneak in extra charges or provide a poor-quality vehicle? Are there any fine-print clauses you should keep an eye on? What if the car malfunctions?

Like booking your hotel, you can now book your car from wherever you are through the online booking platform available with our car hiring business. With our "book now & pay later" option you can pick out the car of your choice, book it well in advance, and then pay for the car on the pick up date.

Car hire in Heraklion Airport

I really liked very attentive an supportive behaviour of the staff when I picked up the car. The person explained me everything and also helped to find my hotel in the navigation system. It was evening, dark, and he checked my lights. I felt very comfortable and surprised of the excellent service. I called the support service once later when my steering wheel was blocked and I could not start the engine. The call was answered immediately, and I could start the car two minutes later :-) The pick up, and return were fast and easy. Excellent price-to-quality, please keep your service on this level :-)

About Heraklion

Crete’s capital and its largest city, Heraklion is known for its astonishing scenic beauty and significant archeological findings. Situated on the eastern side of Crete, it is also a perfect jumping-off point to other places on the island.

In the ancient times, the city was known as the port of Knossos and played a prominent role in European history of that time. Nowadays, visiting the Palace of Knossos- the mythical Labyrinth of king Mins is an absolute must when you are in the city.

Birds eye view of Heraklion Crete

Throughout its turbulent past, it belonged to Venetians, Turks, and suffered significant material damage during the German invasion of Crete.

Tourists love to gather in the lively Old City, brimming with cultural and historical landmarks and grab a bite and a drink in a restaurant and bar of your choice.

Food and drink

Heraklion cuisine is a typical Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine, known for being among the healthiest in the world. Not at the expense of the taste, though. Fresh and rich with high-quality ingredients, some of its staples are Crete cheese, fresh produce, lamb, olive oil, Greek yogurt. Best served with a shot of Cretan raki on the side.
