KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Karpathos

  • Car hire in Karpathos means you can explore the beautiful island at your leisure without having to abide by the timetables of public transport. You can also travel directly to your destination, without having to make changes along the way. For instance, you can drive from the capital of the island, also called Karpathos, to Dhiafanion in about 1h 15min. There are no public transport options for this journey, so you would otherwise have to travel by taxi.
  • Karpathos Airport (AOK) is in the south of the island and offers a great location to collect your hire car. Once you have landed on the island, collected your luggage and passed through immigration, you’ll find a selection of car hire companies. For example, Alamo is located in the airport terminal, whilst Thirfty is a short shuttle service away. You will need to show your Karpathos car hire provider your identification and complete some paperwork before you will be given the keys to your vehicle. In addition, you’ll be required to complete your payment.
  • Using car hire in Karpathos, you will see that it is a popular city on the Greek island of Karpathos. It gets exceptionally busy during the peak summer months, when tourists arrive by sea and air. When driving through the centre of the town, you should drive with care, as people will cross the roads in areas that aren’t designated for pedestrians. Tourists also love to hire mopeds on this island, which can make driving your hire car more hazardous. To enhance safety, it’s best to consult your mirrors regularly.
  • When driving a Karpathos hire car, you’ll see that the roads get very busy during the peak summer months.

The same goes for flight arrivals, with the roads often getting busier when tourists arrive at Karpathos Airport.

Pros:

Rental car agent was very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

We were not given the type of car we reserved. I had to return it the next day for something else. I need to contact Budget in order to request a refund for the difference between the two cars.
