The prefecture of Rethymno has a good road network offering an easy access to all popular locations and other prefectures of Crete. KTEL buses have frequent routes serving thousands of visitors and locals throughout the year. Local buses are equally organized linking the capital with the settlements of Rethymno with routes that start from the early morning hours until late at night. For the best convenience of the visitors during the summer, the routes are more frequent.
One of the ways to transfer from one side of Rethymno to the other is with a taxi service. It is the most expensive means of transport but still destinations can be accessed faster. Taxi ranks are usually found outside the port of Agios Nikolaos and the central spots of Rethymno offering immediate assistance to all visitors upon their arrival.
Renting a car is a great way to explore Crete and particularly Rethymno which is blessed with natural beauty and breathtaking scenery. There are many car rentals at the centre of Rethymno Town and in tourist places, suggesting a wide variety of cars and motorcycles for all tastes. A private vehicle is ideal for your tours.
Excursions are organized daily from various spots of Rethymno to gorgeous islets and isolated beaches. Boats are also available for a tour around the island and short trips to the most popular sites and hidden coves that adorn the coasts of Rethymno. During the summer, it is an amazing experience to take one of these trips.
