Car rental:

To rent a car, we recommend two local companies, which are close to us, please tell us the dates you are interested, to give you the best quote. You have to be above 22 years old, have a credit card. Pick up can be from Chania airport or from our hotel for no extra cost.

If you plan to stay in Chania for more than 3 days and want to see places (especially remote beaches and mountain hikes), my advice is to rent a car, (45 euros per day, cheaper if you rent for longer time). Gasoline is expensive in Europe and Greece, in Crete it costs 1.85 euros per liter. Come to the hotel by car, and then we’ll give you ideas on where to go and what to do.

There are 4 car rental companies near our hotel. If you rent for 2-3 days, companies make a better price. You must be over 21 years of age and have a European or international driving license. It is better to book in advance as it is more expensive last minute. You can take the car from the airport, harbor, or bring it to our hotel at no extra cost.
