Karlovassi Guide

Karlovassi, which can also be spelled Karlovasi, is the second largest community on the Greek island of Samos, the southernmost island in the Aegean Sea and situated within swimming distance of nearby Turkey. The largest community on the island, also named Samos, is only a 30km drive by car hire in Karlovassi.

The car rental desk at the Samaina Inn Hotel Samos is the easiest place to find cheap car hire in Karlovassi, but renting a vehicle at Samos International Airport Aristarchos or the Samos Auto Centre before driving to Karlovassi is another option.

The community of Karlovassi is actually divided into three smaller villages named New Karlovassi, Middle Karlovassi, and Old Karlovassi. Old Karlovassi is situated behind the port on a forested hill and filled with small traditional Greek homes. This part of town also offers a wonderful view from the Chapel of the Holy Trinity.

New Karlovassi, just a short drive by car rental in Karlovassi, is the location of most of Karlovassi's shops and other modern attractions. One of Karlovassi's most popular attractions is its small beach.

Although the beach sand may be too pebbly for comfortable sunbathing, the waters are clear and blue, and the olive groves and dark green hills of the surrounding area provide spectacular scenery. Just behind the beach lie several small tavernas and restaurants, as well as the vibrant nightlife provided by the University of the Aegean student population.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
