Review of Ali Hodgetts about our office at Heraklion Airport - Crete Powered by Google™
We had an all included quote for car and no excess charges if the car was returned damaged. A deposit was held for petrol and was returned very quickly. Great car, great service
Review of Kristaps Mi about our office at Heraklion Airport - Crete Powered by Google™
Free pickup from airport. We had some confusion with debit/credit cards, so there was an 30min wait to sort things out. But besides that, all is great! Not sure why everyone leaves bad reviews. We purchased the premium plan and everything went smooth. So i suggest to pay the premium and have peace of mind - no deposit and full insurance that could get useful in tight Crete roads :)

Centauro provided a friendly transfer to and from the airport. Our upgraded Fiat Panda proved to be a capable little car which made all the difference to our holiday to Crete. They were easy to get hold of and gave us a couple of hours of welcome flexibility when returning the car.
Review of Francesc Tarrús about our office at Heraklion Airport - Crete Powered by Google™
We rented a car (Nissan Qashqai or similar) for one week hours before our arrival to Crete. When we landed they gave us a Renault Kadjar that was very new (still had that new car smell) and the renting process was very fast and agile, also the staff was very nice. One thing I do recommend is that whatever fare you go for, add the SMART policy which is only 100€ more and you avoid leaving any kind of deposit (insurance comprised) and also includes the assistance in case of any struggle, definitely great value for money! Last but not least, note that when you arrive to the airport you need to look for a shuttle that will bring you to the offices, they are not in the same airport!

Heraklion tourist information
What to see in Heraklion
From the port you can go on a route through its narrow streets and its secrets. There you will see the Koules fortress, known as the Venetian Harbor, which dates back to the 13th century. As you go down one of the city center streets, you will enjoy other ancient monuments, each belonging to a different civilization. The Agios Titos Cathedral belongs to the Byzantine Empire, the Agios Minas Cathedral is one of the largest in Greece and the Loggia (today the cityâ€™s town hall) has a Venetian style.
In the heart of its historic center you will find a curious fountain, also of Venetian style. It is the Morosini Fountain, which is more than 400 years old. And if you want to visit museums, we recommend the Archaeological Museum, one of the best in the whole country. Also, try taking a walk through the bazaar and browsing among its stalls.
Driving route through Heraklion
By choosing your car hire in Heraklion you open a world of possibilities for you to move easily around the city. A visit to the Palace of Knossos is decidedly essential. About 5 kilometers from the city, it is the most important Minoan palace on the island and the most representative of Crete.
We recommend you to drive to the beaches in the north of the city and also make a contrast visiting the most mountainous part of Crete. The village of Agia Varvara is very beautiful and representative of this type of Cretan landscape.
Based on vegetables and olive oil, you canâ€™t miss dishes such as gemista (vegetables like tomatoes or zucchini stuffed with rice), agria xorta (boiled vegetables served with oil and lemon) and one of their most emblematic desserts, the koulourakia (quaintly snake-shaped butter cookies with sesame).

The weather throughout Crete is temperate all year round, due to its privileged situation in the Mediterranean. If you visit Heraklion in summer, you will find temperatures below 30 degrees on average. On the other hand, winter temperatures do not go far below 15 degrees and it rains moderately. Adjust your suitcase to these temperatures and remember that any time is good to visit Crete.
