Hi there

Crete is a large island so could you give an idea as to where you will be staying?

In Hersonissos I used "Auto-Travel". For two days I paid 70 Euros. Broken down as 50E and 20E (not sure what the 20E was for). But it was all inclusive. This seemed to be the cheapest I could find.

We just got back and rented from Kosmos. We got the smallest car they had and it was Hyundai Atos and it was around 150 euro including taxes, a CDW and unlimited mileage. I think that they have booth at Iraklio airport but we had ours delivered to our hotel the day after we arrived.

The main roads are ok, but anything else is very very narrow. We rented a car for $80 a day for 2 days from the hotel all included, insurance also. We were warned about some insurance dont cover everything thats why we checked with the hotel.

Its a great place, drive carefully especially up the mountains, the roads are really narrow, the view is just great.

The roads were fine. The national road is fairly new and a quick way to get only the north side of the island. The smaller are fine as well you just need to take it easy on the windy roads or driving at night as lots of the roads don't have guard rails. We found Iraklio to be busy even in October and there was some road construction so it was slow going everytime we went there but other than that no problems. Enjoy ourself, Crete is a beautiful island.
