EUROPCAR Car Rental Services at Heraklion Airport

Heraklion Airport is located only 5 km, or 3 miles from the city of Heraklion, and is considered to be an important gateway, as it is one of only two major international airports leading to Crete, and provides a quick connection to the largest city and financial hub of the region. Heraklion is also very popular for its wide array of tourist attractions. The best way to explore the island is in a rented car, from one of the car hire companies at Heraklion Airport, such as Europcar. Europcar is one of the world's largest providers of car rental services, and offers competitive rental prices at this location.

When arriving at Heraklion Airport, passengers will find a single terminal building reasonably equipped with facilities for all its customers. The car hire companies, and Europcar, are found in the arrivals section of the building, and the rented vehicles are parked nearby, within easy walking distance. Simply arrive at Heraklion Airport and make your way to the Europcar rental counters in order to arrange the ideal car for your holiday or business trip, or make an advanced reservation, from Europcar's website at An advanced booking is recommended during the summer months of Greece, August in particular, when car hire can be in higher demand. Another good reason for booking early is that some of the car hire companies offer better rates for a reservation a few weeks in advance, or even offer an online booking discount.

From Europcar Heraklion Airport, one-way hire may be possible. This option is most convenient for customers who will not be returning to the airport, but who would rather return their rented car to another Europcar location. One way rentals may cost a bit extra if the car is returned to another city, or country, but are usually free of charge if returned within the same city. Europcar can provide more details regarding their one way car hire services should it be required for your holiday. Disabled drivers at Heraklion Airport are also offered certain options when hiring a vehicle, as hand controls may be available. Hand controls are used by drivers with a lower limb deficiency, and operate the brake and accelerator pedals of certain automatic vehicles. They do not however operate the blinkers, car lights or windshield wipers. Along with hand controls, there may also be a steering wheel knob for easier control of the vehicle. At Heraklion Airport, hand controls should be reserved a few days in advance of your arrival.

Additional items of equipment that should be reserved in advance may include baby or booster seats, satellite navigation systems and roof racks, as these items are subject to availability. All children younger than ten years of age travelling in Greece must be seated in the rear of the vehicle, and it is advisable to have a separate and secure car seat for young babies or children. Motorists unfamiliar with the road networks of Crete Island will find a satellite navigation system most useful, as some of the roads and highways are not clearly marked, and sometimes signage in English can be scarce.

Vehicles from Europcar Heraklion Airport car rental are arranged into various vehicle categories, and are therefore booked accordingly. A couple of the smaller vehicles available at this rental location include the Fiat Panda 1.1, Hyundai Atos 1.0 and the Hyundai Getz 1.2. These are all practical vehicles ideal for city driving, single drivers, couples or smaller families, as well as for driving to the nearby towns surrounding Heraklion. They are often chosen for their lower rental rates and fuel efficiency. The smaller cars are found in the Mini and Economy categories, and have a minimum age requirement of just 21 years of age. They also come with air conditioning (great for the hotter summer months!) and unlimited mileage. The Suzuki Jimny is also found in one of the Economy categories, but comes with a higher price tag. However, customers who are fond of a compact SUV will find this car ideal.

Vehicles of an average size can be found in the categories of Compact and Standard, such as the Ford Focus 1.4, Volvo S40 1.6 and Hyundai Accent 1.4. Families of four or five will find these vehicles suitable, as they have sufficient interior space and some room for luggage as well. Age restrictions of 25 apply to these types of vehicles, and some of these vehicles have an automatic transmission, which is a popular feature for many renters. Customers interested in vehicles similar to the Volvo should book early, as they are subject to low availability. Europcar will confirm bookings for this vehicle within 48 hours. If concerned that these cars will still be a little small, a Full-size vehicle, such as the Audi A4 2.0 can be hired, or even the Renault Espace 2.0, with room for seven passengers. Full-size vehicles should also be booked well in advance. Other larger vehicles rented from Europcar include the LR Freelander 1.8, Suzuki Vitara 1.6 and Fiat Scudo 2.0.
