If you plan to visit Crete for more than just a couple of day I highly recommend renting a car. The roads were all in good shape with clearly marked signage and driving is the best way to get around the island. There are so many beaches and areas with different terrain, it was a real treat to drive and check them out.

Taking a small compact car is just enough to visit: Balos, Vai Beach, Elafonisi and anything else on the island. We made 1200km in 5 days without any issue.

there is no way you could go to Crete without a car, only if you go with an agency and they plan everything and they take you everywhere. It was the best thing to rent a car, and the price was afordable.

When driving on side roads of Crete the driver should be very attentive because of sudden big holes in asphalt which could be big enough to damage the car (happend to me). There are streets in towns and villages in Crete so narrow (with parked cars on the side) that it takes lots of careful manoeuring to not scratch the car.

Loved Crete. Visited many places including mountain tavernas, beaches, ruins, olive mills, “train” trips, and did regular stuff like supermarket shopping. All were great experiences and gave insight into Crete life. Having a great car from Green Motion made it possible. Loved it all.

Loved everything about our visit to Crete. Highlights included visit to Elaphinisi Beach - probably the most beautiful, spectacular, unspoilt beach I have ever visited. Would highly recommend hiring a car - as the drives along the coast or across the higher mountain roads provides some spectacular scenery. We stayed in the Asterion Suites and Spa in the Chania region - beautiful hotel with fantastic facilities and the most friendly of staff.

Herakleion is the place to rent a car. There are so many excersion and nice place to visit around. The pariking in the center the most of the times was not a problem. Many times we parked for free and even the times we had to park in a private parking the cost was 4,00 to 5,00 euros.

Prepare yourself for driving on Greek roads, particularly in busy towns and at night. You get used to it, but it can be quite daunting at first. Be aware of potential inaccuracy on phone map navigation, particularly if journeying on mountain roads through small villages.

Crete is huge. A car is essential to get anywhere off resort, if you don’t want to pay over the odds for coach trips. There is not much to see outside the towns on the island
