Renting a car or motorcycle is usually the go-to option for first-timers on a holiday destination; a greatly convenient investment for returning travellers as well. It is not fun wasting time while attempting to suit your whole itinerary within the local transportation options (if there are any in the first place) and timetable.
Especially when it comes to Naxos, a car rental is strongly recommended if you plan to make the most out of your time on the island. The local bus routes do not cover the mountain roads efficiently and are not that frequent throughout the day either. A car allows you to explore the fascinating Naxian mainland on your own pace and privacy while significantly diminishing the trip duration.
Book your car rental with us easily and enjoy your holiday in Naxos to the fullest.
