Driving around in Rhodes
What to see around the island

The stunning island of Rhodes has many places to visit and explore and there aren’t many better ways of doing this than hiring a car and discovering all the hidden gems of this beautiful island for yourself. Hiring a car on a Rhodes holiday can serve many purposes, whether you’re looking to spend the day at the Acropolis of Rhodes taking in the sights of the ancient Greek ruins or to merely spend the day relaxing on the beaches soaking up the sun in peace and quiet, you will never be too far away when you have the luxury of a rented car.

A great advantage of hiring a car in Rhodes is the freedom it allows you, getaway from the hustle and bustle of the main town and visit one of the smaller villages and experience some culture on your Rhodes holiday. A trip to Rhodes Town to explore the old town is a must but it is worth keeping in mind that finding a parking spot can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, if it happens to be a busy day, leave your hired car outside of town and take the bus in. Drive to the coastal towns of Faliraki and Pefkos for a night of wining and dining by the seafront, with spectacular views and delicious local delicacies it is well worth the short drive to these resorts.

Another huge advantage of hiring a car in Rhodes on your holiday is that activities can be done at your own pace, you don’t have to worry about speaking to groups and tour organisers trying to negotiate a price to be taken around the ancient sites or have to meet at a certain time. By hiring a car you don’t have to wait for others, just your own family (and friends) to roll out of bed.

So the next time you plan to go on a holiday in Rhodes, don’t forget to rent a car to make your Rhodes trip that much more enjoyable.
