Autocandia is a Greek car rental company headquartered in Herkolin on the island of Crete. The company doesn’t just operate on Crete, though, it also has rental locations across Greece, both the mainland and the most popular islands including Athens, Thessaloniki, Kalamata, Rhodes, Kos, Corfu, Zante, Santorini, and Mykonos. On the island of Crete, it serves the major airports and a few other cities.

Autocandia is owned and operated by K. Badouvas S.A., a leading travel company in Greece. The group owns Createn Holidays (a travel agency), three hotels, and a hotel management company. It has been around for more than 50 years, thus having a lot of experience serving tourists visiting Greece. Autocandia, itself, started in 1980.

Autocandia provides excellent customer service and value, as the reviews of the company’s customers have left show. In fact, the company has won our Excellent Car Rental Service Award for its Crete Airport HeraklionAthens Airport (in 2023), Rhodes Airport, and Kos Airport locations. We give this award to those suppliers that have the highest ratings from our customers in every location.

Autocandia, being as old and large as it is, has an extensive fleet of vehicles for travelers to choose from. From small, mini cars great for island travel, to SUVs and vans for larger families or groups, the company can cater to almost every type of traveler. Unfortunately, the company isn’t a great choice for travelers that don’t have a credit card, as the company, like many rental companies, doesn’t accept debit card
