Worth having a car to explore the mountain roads and to get to the start point of hikes/gorges. I'd also recommend going to the World's Oldest Olive Tree

Please MAKE clear that on arrival you need to pay €1,000. This was found in small print. When i feel it should be in bold and clearly put on the front page when searching for cars. Or an alert should come up so people don’t miss this.

The car more than paid for itself with the trip to and from the airport to accommodation, rather than a taxi, and some day trips, eg, Samaria Gorge, shopping (beats walking with 12 litres of water!), exploring the local area.

Drove to Plakias for our holiday from Chania airport. Having a car was perfect as it meant we could explore the island at our leisure not restricted by bus timetables.

If in Chania you would definitely need a car to maximise your stay and visit all of the best beaches.

Crete is beautiful, natural place with many beautiful beaches and scenery. Elafonisi beach is like a paradise. Worth the drive. But do be prepared for some proper mountain roads. Loutro is a special place, as is the beach in the cover nearby. These are only reachable via a ferry from Sfakia (again a proper mountain drive) When driving, be prepared -the driving is a bit wild. There seems to be a known agreement where, if you are going slower than others, you have to move onto the hard shoulder (emergency lane) Most roads are single file with a hard shoulder. Judging by Crete's drivers the speed cameras might not be plugged in ;-)

Hired the car for 2 weeks holiday in Crete. Collected and dropped off the car at Chania airport. Drove the car along the coastline, up and into the mountains. Visited places -quiet rural villages: museums. Ancient ruined habitations, beaches, towns and cities. The car enabled us to visit many lovely, interesting places.

loved Chania and the old port area. Also the beach near Chania was Blue flag and great for swimming. We travelled from Chania , over the hills, to Paleochora a beautiful fishing village on the south coast, for five relaxing days , swimming , walking and eating is lovely tavernas. Took a boat trip to Elefonisi from Paleochora which was wonderful.

The rental processes was one of the easiest I’ve encountered. The staff were efficient and helpful and completed the pick up and drop off in a few minutes - I did even have to wait in a queue. The car itself was OK - a little shabby on the inside and with several external dents and scratches. But these were documented on collecting the vehicle and there was no further damage while I had the vehicle, so no issues on drop off. The collection point is very near the entrance to Chania airport - and the reception desk was also very easy to find. All in all - a very good experience…

During our 2 week holiday we stayed in 3 separate places: Plakias on the south coast, a nice resort with plenty of restaurants and pleasant beaches. Beware though that it is often windy! We also stayed in Chora Sfakion, a lovely little village. We did a boat trip to Gavdos island which was well worth it, but we should have stayed at the first beach which the bus stopped at - Sarakiniko beach. Ag Ioannis is the second stop but it is a 15-20 minute walk from the bus stop and taverna. Finally we stayed in Kalyves which was a busier resort with a sandy beach.
