There is no better way to see everything Santorini Island has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your National rental car. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own car, you can go wherever you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Greece even better with a National car rental.
With all there is to do in and around , you'll want to explore more than the area surrounding your hotel during your visit. Whether you have to have dinner at the bistro that has gotten great reviews across town or try some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own car to see and do as much as possible while on your vacation. Wherever you drive to in , if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having your own vehicle is key.
Founded by twenty-four independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 international locations. National offers everything economy to SUVs, allowing you to pick the best ride for your upcoming holiday.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Most suppliers in Santorini Island require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santorini Island. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Greece you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
National requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to National.
Santorini Island certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Santorini Island, having your own automobile lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Greece, you can leave when you like, without trying to signal for a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
