Heraklion Vacations

If you're planning a vacation in Heraklion, renting a car during your stay on the island will be your best companion. It's particularly convenient to pick up a car right after your arrival at Heraklion Airport, helping you avoid expensive taxi fares.

Here’s how to rent a car in Heraklion:

Heraklion—the cultural heart of Crete—is home to the famous Archaeological Museum and many other attractions including the Minoan palaces of Knossos, Malia, and Phaistos, the palace of Agia Triada, and the ancient city of Gortin. Traveling by car allows you to visit all these sites with ease and comfort.

Features of Renting in Heraklion

You can rent a car not only at the airport but also at various rental shops around the city or even directly at your hotel. Choosing a car on the spot allows you to personally assess its condition and possibly negotiate the price. However, during peak season, this approach is often more expensive, especially when availability is low.

That's why most travelers prefer to rent a car online, using services like TakeCars, which offer:

  • The ability to review all vendor reviews.
  • Information about the owner of the car.
  • Detailed filters for easy car selection.
  • Rental options with no deposit required.

By renting a car, you can not only explore Heraklion but also embark on exciting trips all over Crete. Visit places like the Lassithi Plateau, the beaches of Elafonisi, or the island of Spinalonga. With TakeCars, your journey will be even easier, thanks to our cooperation with local companies and individuals providing a wide range of cars for every budget.

Renault Duster in Crete

All is well, just not the duster that was available on the site for rent on our dates, but Suzuki vitara. After prepayment for the duster, we were told that it was not available for our dates and offered a more expensive car. But the car itself was good, in terms of car operation everything was fine, fresh, clean and vigorous.

Skoda Octavia in Crete

The car was a Skoda Octavia, produced in 2011, as for me this is an old car for rent, we do not have cars older than 2017 in Ukraine, then the level of technical fluids in the car, apparently, is not checked, because one day the indicator for the absence of antifreeze came on, I had to buy and refill, but in general I drove where I needed. But these are all little things, in general I am satisfied, since the car in Crete is a problem, so thanks for helping with the car. Honestly, if I am asked about the possibility of renting a car in Crete, I will give the coordinates of your company, as the price is much lower than that of large, international rental operators. Thanks again.
