Stretching to 160 miles long and 38 miles wide, Crete feels more like an entire country than an island. Two and a half times the size of Majorca, it’s a whopper.

While public buses might be great for short-haul pootles, you’ll need to opt for car hire in Crete if you’re hoping to cover some serious ground.

A twisty maze of mountains, vineyards, gorges, forests, beaches and remote rocky headlands, driving in Crete is an extraordinary experience in itself. The journey is just as important as the destination, so hop in a hire car and hit the open road. You won’t regret it.
