Car hire excess insurance in Zakynthos

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Zakynthos car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Zakynthos.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Zakynthos car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Zakynthos

  • There aren’t many islands as breathtakingly beautiful as the Greek island of Zakynthos, and to make sure you can see every nook and cranny of this beloved holiday destination, get a hire car during your visit. From Shipwreck Beach, a remote and isolated beach in the northwest of the island, to the hip Laganas area in the south, there is plenty to explore on Zakynthos -- and everything is easier to reach with your own four wheels.
  • Zakynthos Airport is 3 miles from Zakynthos city, about 6 miles from Laganas beach, and approximately an hour from the northern end of the island. To reach your next destination conveniently and without expensive cab rides, as there is no public bus operating, rent a car directly from one of their onsite agencies. Follow the signs to the hire car desks upon arrival and choose from a wide array of cars which can cruise you to every hidden beach on the island.
  • There are very few road markings and traffic lights on Zakynthos, so bear that in mind and drive defensively and slowly. Apart from in Zante city, there are no traffic lights and it is down to the drivers to establish a system of how to proceed at intersections. Stay on the right at all times so that speeding locals can pass you, and do not be surprised if local drivers do not adhere to street regulations at all times.
  • As there are only small cities and villages dotting the island, rush hour is not too bad here -- but traffic can still increase between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 8 pm. Zakynthos is also a popular holiday resort and, during the summer months, traffic can increase dramatically on the island. Especially around popular beaches like Laganas Beach or Zante city, cars can be clustered and there may be lines when entering the parking zones.

  • Travelers who want to get the most out of the sunshine and summer vibes should consider renting a convertible, as the weather on Zakynthos is splendid during the summer. As the streets on the island are not pristine in all places and the villages and cities are narrow in most parts, renting a compact car is recommended.

  • All speed limits are posted in kilometers per hour on Zakynthos and general regulations permit 50 km/h (31 mph) in residential areas. On rural roads, up to 90 km/h (65 mph) is generally allowed but, due to the winding roads on Zakynthos, it is not advised to go faster than 60 km/h (37 mph).

  • Petrol in Europe is generally more expensive and is measured in liters. The average price for one liter in Zakynthos is €1.55 ($1.76, which means approximately $7.04 per gallon). Make sure to familiarize yourself with what kind of petrol is required for the hire car and refill the tank before venturing out to the remote beaches, especially on the western side of the island, as it has less infrastructure and therefore fewer petrol stations.

  • The easiest way to secure a parking spot for your hire car is by opting for an accommodation with a parking spot included. When driving into Zante city, there is a car park next to the port that may be your best bet to score a spot. The beaches usually have parking lots as well.
