The freedom of having a car is great on an island with many sights to see.

Crete is an amazing island...however plans need to be laid out carefully as the distances are quite large. Despite this slight inconvenience a few towns and beaches are compulsory: Chania, Rethymno, Agios Nikolaos, Malia & the beaches: Elafonissi, Prevelli, Istro, Matala, Balos etc. Have fun and keep your eyes on the road!

Easy to rent a car at airport and drop it at the port to take a ship to other island!

Crete is amazing for exploring and walking, especially the remote beaches and Gorges / Canyons such as Richti and Sarakinada. You definitely need a car to get the most out of your holiday.

The car was as promised, in good condition. However, it broke down late one evening and I was told that it could only be serviced or replaced the next morning at 9 am. As we had an early afternoon flight about 1.5 hours from our location I requested they arrive as early as possible. In the end they came a bit earlier than originally promised, and when they found out that the car could not be serviced immediately replaced it. All in all very satisfactory service.

If you are not an experienced driver, do not rent a car in Heraklion. It is very difficult to drive in the city and hard to park. If you are driving to other cities on the highway, then renting a car is highly recommended. The highway driving was very easy.
