    Car Hire Santorini

    Compare and save on Car Hire in Santorini

    Part of the Cyclades Island group, Santorini is one of the most popular destinations for travellers in Greece and is the perfect example of the stunning scenery that one can expect when visiting the Greek Isles. Famous for vivid sunsets and unique beaches, a holiday in Santorini is guaranteed to be one that is not soon forgotten. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Santorini is both easy and economical.

    Travelling in Santorini with a Car Hire

    The main town on Santorini is Fira, located roughly halfway up the main island. Once a quiet island town, Fira comes alive each year when the weather warms up and cruise ships arrive from around the world. Fira is the perfect place to collect your rental car and be on your way to exploring this island paradise.

    To get an insight into the early days of Santorini, jump in your hire car and head towards the southern end of the island. Here you will find the ruins of Akrotiri, a 3,500-year-old town which, much like Pompeii in Italy, was destroyed by a volcanic eruption. Although only a small portion of the town has been excavated, many of the houses are intact and give an idea of ancient life on the islands. To see more of the items recovered, check out the Archaeological Museum in Fira, which houses a large collection of artefacts from Akrotiri and the surrounding area.

    Arguably the most famous feature of Santorini is the many beaches along the coast. You can visit the stunning Red Beach on the west coast of the island, and on the east is Perissa, a long beach covered in black sand. Alternatively, if you would like to avoid the crowds, simply drive your rental car along the coast, and pick a beach that suits you, with the island surrounded by crystal clear waters, it should not take you long to stumble across the perfect spot.
