So we just ran into a snafu when we tried to do a rental car. the information we recieved was that we had to have a international driver's license (we are coming from the US) - which we were planning on getting from AAA here. However, Elounda car rental place said we had to have the license for one full year in order to rent a car. I tried to do some googling - but I couldn't find a for sure statement about this. Is this the law across Crete? Do we have to have the international license for one year in order to rent? Because if there is no possibility of renting a car because of that restriction we don't want to go to AAA and get the license.
I emailed Hertz (they rent through our hotel) but I have not heard back regarding this issue.
Thanks for any help!
