Why hire a car in Rhodes?

The largest of the so-called Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes is also one of the most popular travel destinations in the Greek Aegean. Inhabited since antiquity, the island has a surprising amount of fascinating history to explore, though its main tourist draw naturally remains its idyllic coastline.

Rhodes

Top ways to enter Rhodes

  • Rhodes Airport: Located on the northwestern coast near Rhodes Town and easily reached from anywhere on the island, Rhodes-Diagoras Airport serves about five million travelers every year. The airport is especially active during the summer months when it has flights by more than 60 airlines. 
  • By ferry: Rhodes can be reached by ferry — during the summer months, there is an active service from a number of Greek islands, as well as destinations like Marmaris and Bodrum in nearby Turkey. No companies permit taking a vehicle to Turkey, a country outside the European Union and Schengen Area, but you might find a company that permits taking a hired car to Symi or Tilos. You’ll need to buy a separate ticket for yourself and the car, and it’s a good idea to book them in advance.

Top destinations and activities

  • Rhodes Old Town. The old town of Rhodes has been called one of the most beautiful historical centres in all of the Mediterranean region. The atmospheric quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage site, being home to well-preserved architecture and landmarks such as the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights and Suleymaniye Mosque.
  • The Acropolis of Rhodes. Another gem of Rhodes Town, the Acropolis gives visitors an insight into what the island’s life was like during the classical antiquity. Made up of a theater, as well as several temples and other worship sites, the Acropolis is located above the rest of the town and offers beautiful views of the sea below.
  • Lindos. Home to another acropolis, as well as more recent, but nonetheless notable medieval architecture, the eastern village of Lindos is one of the most popular destinations outside the island’s capital. Inhabited for 3,000 years, the settlement has a special, historic atmosphere.

Traffic and parking

  • There are no motorways on Rhodes (nor on any other Greek islands).
  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 90 km/h (55.9 mph) on roads outside populated areas and 50 km/h (31 mph) in populated and built-up areas.
  • While larger roads are in good shape, smaller roads might have poor surfacing and potholes. Be careful when driving on them, especially after dark.
  • Many petrol stations might be closed during weekends and public holidays. 
  • It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.02% for novice drivers. Exceeding these limits can lead to high fines and a licence ban. Exceeding the limit of 0.08% is a criminal offence and can lead to up to two years of imprisonment.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The general emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112. The police number is 100, the ambulance number is 166, and the fire brigade number is 199.

Ideas for day trips

  • Beaches. The beautiful coastline of Rhodes is famous in Greece and abroad, attracting thousands every year. Known for sandy beaches, the eastern coast gets the bulk of visitors, though more adventurous travelers will no doubt be glad to explore the more rocky western shore.
  • Prasonisi. Located on the southeastern coast of the island, Prasonisi is known as one of the best windsurfing spots in Greece (and arguably beyond). Even if you don’t plan on hitting the waves, it’s still worth visiting this scenic stretch of the island which is also known to throw some of the best parties in Rhodes, especially in the neighboring town of Gennadi. If windsurfing is your thing, another good spot in Fanes in the northwest.
  • Inland. Much less developed than the coast and almost completely ignored by foreign visitors, the inland part of Rhodes can feel like a different country, but if you hire a car, it’s worth traveling there as you’re likely in for one of the most authentic experiences of your trip. Driving the steep highland roads can be challenging, but will also provide you with some of the best views of Rhodes and, from some points, even neighboring islands like Halki.

I visited the Valley of the Seven Springs with the amazing walk through a 186m tunnel in the dark, coming out into a beautiful lake. I also went to Lindos castle and Acropolis, Rhodes Old Town, and the Monastery at Filerimos - lots of incredible views and fantastic history. Ate at some great restaurants in Faliraki; I especially liked the Desert Rose, Greek Spirit and Manoli's

There was a heat wave when we visited Rhodes. We stayed near Lindos and the temperature reached 40 deg +. We drove down to Presonisi, which is right at the tip of the Island and it is cooler there as the wind comes off the sea. Great place for Windsurfing/ Kite surfing or just watching!
