Driving around the island allows you to move around at your own pace and go to the most remote areas of your choice. However, this comes with quite a high price compared to other options.

If you did not already come with your own car, renting one for your sightseeing excursions is a fantastic choice.

There are numerous local car agents carrying most brands that can arrange pick-up locations at the port, airport, Fira or Oia.

An ideal option for adventure seekers, scooters are also a popular way of getting around on the island on your own. Some perks are that they are slightly less expensive than hiring a car, and driving on the narrower streets of Santorini is easier. However, moving around on them exposes you to the sun for a long time and can cause sunburn.

We at Santorini Experts support small local businesses when it comes to vehicle rentals and beyond. The trustworthiness and direct communication they bring can highly benefit any potential customer. Contact us to get informed about our suggestions.

Important things to keep in mind before renting a vehicle

Remember that there is great demand for vehicle rentals, so make a reservation well in advance, especially during the peak season. The roads are also quite narrow, so they can become congested easily. Lastly, parking can be a bit of an issue, especially in Fira and Oia.
