Kos Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Kos Airport! Then drive your rental car to Kos Town, park near the center, and take a walk down the famously happening Bar Street. Make sure you visit historic sites like the Tree of Hippocrates, a plane tree under which, according to the legend, the father of medicine taught his students. Learn more about Hippocrates at Asklepieion, the ruins of an ancient medical center, only a short drive from Kos in your rental car.

One of the major attractions in Kos is the beach. Drive to the Kefalos area in the southwest of the island. The beaches there are ideal for swimming and relaxing, but also for snorkeling and other water sports. The southwest of the island is also where you’ll find the thermal spring Agios Fokas. After just the right amount of relaxation time, make sure to try delicious local foods like moussaka, grilled octopus, and fried squid. 

Kos might be small, but there’s so much to see. Why not get a longer term car rental deal and explore more? You could even pick up your rental car at Kos Airport and drop it off on a different island if your car provider allows it. Start planning your adventure today!

Kos International Airport is also called Hippocrates Airport in honor of Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician known as the “Father of Medicine” who was from the island of Kos.
