Our car rental in Naxos is situated in the capital, Chora, a brief journey by bus or taxi from the airport, and a short drive from many of the island's most popular beaches and other attractions. We're also well-positioned if you'd like to take a scenic tour of Naxos's rugged topography and historic sites. Just jump into your car hire and follow the main roads out of town to take a trip around the coast or into the island's mountainous interior.

However, if you plan on spending your time on Naxo you can hire a car from us that's attuned to your requirements. If you're enjoying a long weekend in the sun, then a compact car like the Renault Clio can get you from your hotel to the beach or nearby water park. At the other extreme, our fleet of rental cars includes luxury mini-van like the VW Caddy, perfect for accommodating larger groups and coping with steep hill roads. While we can't guarantee a specific make, we're confident you'll be pleased with the quality of your rental vehicle, and the straightforward layout of our website makes it easy to do a price comparison so you can find the very best deal online.
When you book with us, a car hire in Naxos usually comes with unlimited free mileage and free cancellation. In addition, we're pleased to offer a selection of other affordable extras. For instance, if you're keen to explore the island's tangle of mountain passes, then you should certainly consider a Sat-Nav. Additional driver insurance will let you share driving duties on long road trips through hilly terrain, and we also have several child seat options for customers with young families. We'd also like to draw your attention to our smartphone app, which allows to you reserve a specific vehicle at short notice.
As with many of the Greek islands, you can see a lot of the sights by sticking to the coastal roads. From Chora (the most common starting point for most visitors), you can turn north-east on the Leoforos Naxou-Engaron, which will eventually take you to the pretty fishing village of Apollon. In the opposite direction, Papandreou Andrea leads to the airport and the busy beaches of the island's western shore. Alternatively, the Paparrigopoulou Ioanni strikes inland, inviting you to explore a seemingly unchanging scene of olive groves and whitewashed rural dwellings. Due to the winding nature of the roads, distances can be deceptive, so leave generous amounts of time for your itinerary. It's also a good idea to set out with a full tank as petrol stations can be few and far between in some parts of the island. Nor should you be surprised if you find your car hire sharing the road with the occasional donkey or goat.
The island of Naxos is notable for its rocky, sunbleached landscape, which reaches heights of 3,294 feet above sea level. It makes a striking backdrop to an impressive selection of classical ruins like the Temple of Demeter, with its collection of ancient columns, and historic buildings like the lofty hilltop Monastery of Christi Fotodotis. The main town, Chora, boasts several museums devoted to archaeology and to the centuries when the island was under Venetian sway. Meanwhile to the east and west stretch a string of crowd-pleasing beaches - Saint George and Agios Prokopios to name but two - plus amusement parks such as Aqua Fun. It's not all about the gorgeous coastline, however. Many tourists take to their rental cars and head inland to explore Filotti, Halki and other picturesque hill villages.
