6.8 Good22 Mar 2019
Pros: Size of the carCons: Drop off service before opening time as the car needs to be checked for scratches etc.
2.0 Mediocre30 Jun 2018
Cons: We never picked up the car. They had the wrong car. We went to another place.
9.2 Excellent16 Apr 2018
Excellent car to rent for island drivingPros: This car was perfect size to drive the small little roads. We were able to easily turn around quickly and parking was easy. It was good on gas mileage since we spent the day driving the entire island.Cons: The pick up time was 0600 and we were limited on time, but the attendant did not open the door until almost 0630.
10.0 Excellent11 Apr 2018
Pros: The representative at the counter was nice, helpful, and spoke great English. The car was idea for our travel around the island and did nothing but continue to impress throughout our trip!
3.2 Mediocre7 Mar 2018
Terrible car for Santorini conditionsCons: The car was unfit for the roads. Driving on the road and rocks everywhere. One rock broke the plastic oil pan underneath and spilled all oil. I was stranded for 4 hours. Then told it was my fault by staff. I was just driving on the road like a normal person. The car and the roads were to blame, not me. Then the replacement vehicle had a flat battery and again I was stranded and had to find help on my own. The reason the battery was flat was because the stereo was not on but because the stereo face was left on, the staff later said oh yes, that'll do it. No mention previously. Potentially very inconvenient lucky I fixed the problem and made my way to the airport on time.

Top tips for hiring a car in Thera

  • Explore the beautiful city of Thera on Santorini, the Greek island on which the city is located. Exploring the whole island is easiest done by car, so rent your own four wheels to gain tons of flexibility during your stay and make the most out of your holiday. Whether it’s the history museum, the archeological museum, or the many scenic beaches, a hire car makes everything feel close.
  • Santorini Airport is only a 10-minute car ride from Thera and has car hire agencies on the airport grounds. Start your holiday hassle-free and pick up a vehicle upon arrival in Santorini. Simply head to the arrivals hall, where travelers will find various counters offering vehicles for every taste. Cars can also be picked up at the ferry port, in case you arrive via ferry.
  • The city of Thera is very old and therefore has many narrow one-way lanes, sometimes ones that are plastered with cobblestones. Be careful with navigating through the roads, as pedestrians tend to cross without looking, and also because there sometimes are no proper sidewalks or parking lanes, which means parked cars are partially blocking the road. Especially when venturing out to explore the island, be careful on the winding roads as oncoming traffic may use two lanes to make the hairpin turns.
  • Traditional morning and evening rush hours are uncommon in Thera; however, this holiday island is highly frequented in the summer months, which can mean increased traffic, especially around the coastlines, where sunbathers flock to the beaches to get the most out of the sun. As many winding country roads are not lit at night, it is also recommended to avoid driving there in the dark, as conditions can be treacherous.

  • Book your car hire in Thera at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Thera are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a car hire in Thera costs £817 per month (£27 per day).

  • Due to the narrow roads in the city, but also outside, it is recommended that you rent a smaller car, as you will have less problem squeezing through the narrow streets and finding a parking spot with it. For travelers who want to feel the wind in their hair for the ultimate summer experience, a convertible may be the right choice. Stick shift vehicles are still the main choice of car in Thera and an automatic one may cost extra.

  • Speed limits change quite often in Thera and the whole of Santorini, so always look at the posted signs. Within the city limits, usually 30-50 km/h (18-31 mph) is permitted and 65 km/h (40 mph) is the limit for open roads; however, it is very important to adjust your speed and slow down considerably when the streets narrow or the road is partially obstructed.

  • The average price for a liter of petrol is €1.55 in Greece ($1.75 per liter), and it is generally more expensive in Europe than in the US. In summer, petrol can be more expensive than during the winter months. Make sure to get the right fuel for your hire car and bear in mind that paying with card in Europe mostly requires the input of a 4-digit pin for verification.

  • Parking in Santorini is free in almost every area, but during the holiday season it may take some time to snatch up one of the coveted spaces. Most of the historic places have their own parking spaces outside, so finding one should be no problem. At the beaches, there are also usually free parking spots as well.
