Yet, that is what many travelers experience with airport transfers and the cost of their services.

Not only is it much more affordable to use a private airport transfer service, the...

Milia Is Truly Magnificent

Milia is truly magnificent.

Tens of thousands of hours have gone into this so far. I spent the day walking around, decoding the landscape and it is a wonder.

All the trees! They look like they just happened, but hundreds and hundreds of them were deliberate and are being actively loved. And the grafting...someone has a deal of skill.

What The Others Say About Our Car Rental Services

Here's what our valued guests say about Crete-Car-Rental.com and our services...

Crete Car Rental worked really well for me for my 4/day trip in Crete. The rate was really reasonable and they delivered and picked up at our hotel in Chania and Heraklion which is extremely helpful. Surprisingly our car read a full size Audi although I'd only paid for a mid-size. The car was not new, but looked and drove great nonetheless. I would certainly use Crete Car Rental again.

15 Wonderful Things To Do In Chania Crete This Summer

By Aliki Panagakou 

I have been living in Chania, Crete for the past six years, though originally from Athens, and I'm guilty as charged: I love it here!

As I stroll around the town of Chania, I admire its remarkable architecture -a magnificent lighthouse in the port, churches and houses in the Old Town, all reminding me of the city's multicultural identity; in fact, I often feel I have entered a time capsule, which takes me back to ancient times, through the Byzantine era and...
