Most tourists who are traveling to Chania from another country fly to the Athens Airport and then catch another flight to the airport in Chania.

It is also possible to arrive into and depart from Chania via a ferry boat. Depending on which type of ferry is boarded, the trip to or from Chania can be as little as six hours (on a fast ferry from Athens) or as much as about eleven hours.

Once arriving in Chania via ferry, a taxi cab can take tourists to their hotel or another location where they plan to stay during their vacation. 

Taxis are also available to take visitors from the Chania International Airport to their destination in Chania.

Taking a taxi is the best bet for transportation from the airport to a hotel because it is very difficult to find a bus that is going in the right direction.

Renting a car is always a possibility for visitors arriving in Chania who need transportation to their hotel. Major car rental companies such as HertzAvisThriftyEnterpriseFirefly operate in the airport.

Driving in Chania and Greece can be difficult for tourists who are not aware of the Greek rules of the road.

In Greece drivers have to be 18 years old, the speed limit 40 Kph in built up area's, 60kph on country roads, 80kph on major roads and unlike mainland Greese only 100kph (60Mph) on the Motorway, using the car’s horn in residential areas is illegal unless it’s an emergency, cars drive on the right-hand side of the road (as they do in the U.S.), and using a cell phone while driving is ILLEGAL!
