Airport Car Rental
Step off the plane and get your rental car right at Heraklion Airport! The city of Heraklion, named after the mythological Greek hero Heracles, is full of history. You can drive your rental to sites like the Venetian Walls and Lions Square, visit stunning churches and basilicas, or learn about the island’s history at one of its museums. Heraklion’s most famous attraction, Knossos Palace, was the center of the ancient Minoan civilization, and it’s also said to have been home to the legendary labyrinth of Minotaur.
All the history might get a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry, there are plenty of other fun things to do! Drive your rental car to one of the beautiful nearby beaches, take a sailing lesson, or try rock climbing on the cliffs of Karteros. On your way back to Heraklion, be sure to stop your rental car at a local Crete kafeneion or coffee shop, and also try some local fruits, cheeses, and olives.
There’s so much to do in Heraklion, but the island of Crete offers a whole lot more. Mountains, gorges, caves, pristine beaches, and ancient monasteries are waiting to be explored. You can even pick up your rental car at Heraklion Airport and drop it off in a different city, like Chania. Start planning your adventure now!
Heraklion Airport is also known as “Nikos Kazantsakis”.

Popular one-way rentals
- Agios Nikolaos (62 km / 38 mi). Located on the northeastern coast of the island, Agios Nikolaos is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Crete. Thousands of travelers come here every year to enjoy its nice beaches, quaint surrounding villages, and nearby islands that can be accessed by boat.
- Chania (142 km / 88 mi). The other large city of Crete, Chania has plenty of sites to visit and things to do. Some of the highlights are the well-preserved Etz Hayyim Synagogue, the Archaeological Museum, the old Venetian port, and some of the best restaurants on Crete.
- Hersonissos (25 km / 15 mi). A small city located roughly halfway between Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos, Hersonissos is a classical coastal party town - come summer, its long and built-up coastal strip will be full of beach bars, restaurants, and impromptu celebrations.
- Ierapetra (96 km / 59 mi). Another beach city, but with a much more relaxed vibe, Ierapetra and the surrounding southeastern coast is a great day-trip destination from Heraklion. The town is often claimed to be the warmest place in Europe and is nearly equidistant from mainland Greece, Turkey in Asia, and Libya in Africa. In addition to beautiful beaches, the town is also home to a nearby donkey sanctuary.
