HERTZ Car Rental Services at Heraklion Airport

Heraklion Airport is also commonly referred to as Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, after a Greek writer and philosopher, and is located on the island of Crete. The airport is only 5 km from the island's capital city of Heraklion, also known as Iraklion, or Iraklio, and is the second largest airport in Greece. Seven million passengers pass through this Crete Airport every year. Although the airport's building is small, and does not offer a huge variety of facilities, there are a number of quality car hire companies present, including Hertz. Hertz Car Hire is the largest provider of car rental services in the world, and are popular for their competitive prices, unique services and wide range of vehicles for hire.

The desk of Hertz Heraklion Airport car hire is open from 08:00 to 21:00, and is found in the arrivals hall. Once passengers have collected their baggage, they can head for the rental counters of Hertz in order to arrange their vehicle. Cars can also be booked in advance, from Hertz's website at www.hertz.com. An advanced reservation is especially recommended during the busier summer season of Crete, and if the customer requires a special size or style of vehicle. The range of vehicles available from Hertz, at this location, can be viewed on their website, as well as information regarding the Hertz rental terms and conditions which need to be followed.

The Heraklion Airport rental cars are parked nearby the terminal building; therefore no additional shuttle services are required. The airport's exit is on the Makariou, which leads to the road known as the ‘National Highway’. This highway heads west for the city of Heraklion, and east along the northern coast of the island, and generally connects all the popular tourist areas. Passengers driving a rental car from Hertz will find that the island of Crete has numerous fuel stations along the main roads, but that the majority of them may close at 19:00. The fuel stations also only take cash, but are serviced by petrol attendants. Always ensure that you know which type of fuel your rented car should use, as it may take petrol or diesel. If the wrong type is used, costs for having the engine cleaned could be added to your rental.

At this Hertz rental location, customers can hire baby seats for their children and luggage racks at a small additional cost per day of car rental. It is recommended to request these items as early as possible, as they are subject to availability, on a ‘first come first served’ basis. A service popular from this rental company are the Hertz one-way rentals, which are commonly used by customers who will not be returning to Heraklion Airport. For a one way car rental, customers will be able to collect their vehicle from the airport, but may return it to a different Hertz rental location. If the car is returned to a nearby location, there are not usually any additional costs for the service; however, it is best to confirm the details with Hertz.

Hertz offers many unique services for their customers, and caters for the needs of each individual. Disabled drivers can use the Hertz hand controls for their assistance on certain automatic vehicles. Hand controls are ideal for those with lower limb disabilities, as they control the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, and may even include a steering wheel knob for extra help with driving the vehicle. Although Hertz does not charge a fee for the use of hand controls, they should be booked in advance, at least 48 hours before arriving at Heraklion Airport to collect the vehicle.

Customers have a good selection of vehicles from which to choose at Hertz Heraklion Airport. The vehicles at this rental location are arranged by category, rather than by specific make and model, which is the case at certain other Hertz rental locations. A practical and economical car available in the Car/Convertible category is the Hyundai i10, as well as the Opel Corsa and Fiat Grande Punto. These are smaller cars, but ideal for four or five passengers. They are a popular choice for their low rental prices and fuel efficiency. There is also the even smaller MCC Smart 0.6 available, which is ideal for just two passengers, and two small luggage items. Although small, it comes with air conditioning and an automatic transmission, and is enjoyed by many customers who simply need a town car for running errands. Other popular vehicles include the Ford Focus 1.4, Hyundai Accent 1.3 and Ford Focus C-Max, which is a larger car seating five passengers.

Hertz Heraklion Airport car hire also offers the Estate vehicle category, featuring the Opel Astra Wagon or other vehicles similar, and the 4WD/SUV/Minivan category, with larger vehicles ideal for families or groups of travelers. The Seat Alhambra is available, seating seven people, as well as the Fiat Scudo and VW Transporter, with space for up to nine passengers. SUV's for hire are similar to the Suzuki Vitara 1.6 and Saab 9-7 4.2.

Customers can contact Hertz, at their Heraklion Airport car rental location for all further details.
