Travel on Crete

Once you have arrived in Crete there are many travel options.


The first is to hire a car. There are many companies who deal with car hire and you can offten book on line before you arrive. As well as the well known companies such as Avis, there are many local firms, if you are going to use one of these ask around first for feedback and make sure you read the small print carefully.

Taxis are pleantiful and fairly cheap.  Check the fare before you set off.


There is a very good, regular bus sevice on Crete, you will see the green KTEL buses everywhere, and this is a very good option if you do not want to drive yourself.

Mopeds and motorcycles are also avaiblable for hire. Only consider this if you are used to driving one at home and don't drive too fast as many of the small side roads are not well maintained
