All you need to know about driving and rent a car in Santorini
February 25, 2021
There aren’t many places on Earth that can really compare to the rare beauty of Greek island of Santorini. Over 2 million people every year prefer to spend their vacation time here. It is fair to say that Santorini has earned its place among the world’s most popular holiday destinations.
Why Rent a Car in Santorini?
Santorini is easily explored by car. It’s a relatively small island and is packed with amazing historical sights, intoxicating beaches and stunning sunsets.
Renting a car in Santorini is a huge advantage, because it allows you to travel at your own pace, gives the flexibility to follow your own timing schedule and means you can visit the places you really want to go.
The biggest benefit of having a rental car is that you can visit the sights and stay in hotels further away that are not crowded. This also allows you to save money as generally hotels in urban areas are more expensive and tourists can not travel too far from them without a car.
We highly recommend renting a smaller car for road-tripping in Santorini. Renting a smaller car makes navigating and parking in the villages that you will visit significantly easier.
