Plakias Car Rental is served both by local offices as well as car hire agencies in Heraklion, Rethymnon and Chania.
If you come to Crete by plane to the Airport of Heraklion or the Airport of Chania, you should better hire a car, requesting delivery to the airport. This way you will reach Plakias easier and faster, without delaying waiting for a bus, and avoiding the high taxi rates.
Same rules apply if you come from Piraeus to Souda port in Chania, to Rethymnon port or to the Heraklion port. Both the car rental agencies in Plakias and the rest of the companies based in bigger towns can deliver the rental cars free of charge to all ports of Crete.
Given the fact that this region is limitedly served by local buses, Car Rental in Plakias offers you the best way to explore South Crete from Hora Sfakion and Frangokastello to the west, to Preveli, Agios Pavlos, Agia Galini, Phaistos and Matala to the East.
Roads around Plakias are well maintained, thus you can travel easily regardless of the rental car you choose, smaller or bigger, unless you enjoy driving off road. You will find dirt roads from Preveli to Agios Pavlos where you will feel more confident and secure driving a 4x4 Jeep.
