Why rent a car in Santorini

Santorini is one of those islands where a vehicle (car, motorcycle, ATV) is strongly recommended and will enable a smooth exploration of the island, at your own pace. Santorini is the top tourist destination in Greece with numerous villages and beaches; thus, renting a car is the best way to enjoy a carefree holiday on this phenomenal island.

Basic public bus transportation system (KTEL buses) on the island connects the capital of Fira with other villages and the port. Although it is a considerably cheap way of transportation, it is definitely not the best way to move around. The biggest disadvantage of public buses during summer months is that they get overcrowded and timetables can be unreliable at times.
Furthermore, note that the KTEL buses connect primarily the capital town of the island, Fira with the other villages. As a result, there is no direct route from one village or a beach to another so transits in Fira central bus station are unavoidable. This might be time-consuming and confusing. Also, buses only operate until 22:30.

Taxis, on the other hand, are another option for transportation. Again, due to the big number of tourists during summer, they get booked or hired immediately so it is not considered consistent enough to count on in order to visit several places during your holiday. In any case, you can book your private transfer with us.

Note that Santorini has a moderate size and distances do not exceed 30-40’ by car. It is an island with many fascinating areas to discover. Apart from the main touristic caldera villages of Oia, Imerovigli, Fira and Firostefani, driving with your car to a volcanic beach, a remote winery, an authentic tavern in the mainland or to a village out of the beaten path will enrich your visit and insight on the island.

Therefore, it is our belief that for your transportation on the island, renting a car is an ideal, time-saving investment.

Driving in Santorini

Driving in Santorini is not considered very complicated compared to other islands. The biggest part of the island has a safe road network connecting every village and beach. Also note that due to its volcanic origin and the steep cliffs of the Caldera, there are a few zig-zag parts (namely the road from Athinios Port to the central road, or a small part from Fira to Oia) where you will need to be very careful.
You might find that there is a lack of road signs, but due to its average size, you can not get lost easily. The use of a GPS is always helpful. Also, take into consideration that during the night there is hardly any street lighting.
Last but not least, while driving you will pass by many amazing viewpoints, so have your cameras ready!

Gas stations in Santorini

Upon receiving your rental vehicle, make sure to check the fuel tank and confirm whether it uses Diesel or Unleaded. Upon returning the car you will be asked to deliver it with a full fuel tank. There are more than 15 gas stations around the island (i.e. Shell, Avin, Eko, Aegean and others). Many of them are located around Fira but there are also plenty in other places as well.

Parking in Santorini

Parking in Santorini is very convenient. Note that cars are not permitted inside the villages, so almost every village (such as Oia, Imerovigli, Firostefani and Fira) have one or more designated parking areas right before the settlement that are free of charge. These parking areas are indicated with a “P” letter in a square, blue street sign. Note that most hotels in the Caldera villages do not include a parking lot. Moreover, parking on the street is frequently permitted unless there is a no-parking sign. Make sure though that you are not blocking the traffic, especially the bus street routes.

Santorini with a car rental

Apart from the main tourist villages of Oia, Fira and Imerovigli, Santorini has many amazing places, beaches and villages to discover by car. These are three routes that combine different attractions and places to visit on the island.

Minoan Site of Akrotiri - Red beach - Lighthouse

A 15km drive from Fira will lead you to the Minoan Site of Akrotiri, one of the most significant archaeological sites in the Cyclades. The site of Akrotiri is a bronze age settlement considered by archeologists one of the most sophisticated of the ancient times that prospered for centuries before getting buried by volcanic ash. Less than a 4km ride from there, one can locate the spectacular Red Beach. A wonderful spot to dive in fresh and clear waters while being amazed by the vibrant colours of the volcanic soil blending with the azure waters of the Aegean sea. The tour excursion by car to the south part of the island would be incomplete without a visit to the Lighthouse at the very edge of the island. For the romantic souls, this is a perfect sunset spot away from the bustling Caldera.

Emporio - Perissa beach

Emporio is a traditional village on the mainland of Santorini. It is located a little less than 10km by car from the capital of Fira. The village has beautifully paved alleys for strolling around and admiring the local architecture. Churches, domes, towers and ruins of a Venetian castle are some of the attractions of this intriguing village. Furthermore, at just a 3km ride away, one of the most popular Santorinian beaches can be found. Perissa is a long sandy beach with many restaurants, cafes and facilities where you can spend an unforgettable day.

Pyrgos village - the wine roads - Profitis Ilias monastery - Metaxy mas tavern

Pyrgos village is considered a hidden gem on this spectacular island. At only a 7.5km drive south of Fira, immerse yourselves in a place of authentic Santorinian colour and lifestyle. Make sure to take your time and wander inside this picturesque village. After that, take your car and explore the broader region, famous for the production of the Assyrtiko wine. The landscape is wonderful with vineyards scattered all over the place creating the famed Santorinian wine roads. There are numerous wineries and estates that welcome visitors for a guided wine tour. Lastly, we suggest continuing your way up to Profitis Ilias Monastery where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the island. At dinner time, book a table at the “Metaxy mas” tavern, one of the most savoury and unpretentious Greek taverns on the island, serving local recipes to die for!
