Karpathos Guide

The Dodecanese Islands are renowned for retaining rich traditions and boasting spectacularly diverse scenery. Nestled between busy Rhodes and Crete, the small island of Karpathos is famous for its friendly atmosphere and authentic flavour.

Karpathos’ foremost attraction is its diverse environment. Rough and wild in the north, tamed and beautiful in the south, the island is home to many artists and photographers. Karpathos township, located in the southeast, boasts the islands busiest beach (Pigadia), with long golden sands ideal for windsurfers and sun seekers alike.

The city centre merges ancient and modern Greece and is packed with reminders of ancient times. The town’s original site, Vounos, is located just east of the harbour and nearer the entrance stand ruins of an ancient acropolis. This area is home to many traditional Greek houses whilst the town’s business and shopping district is located closer to Pigadia Beach.

Karpathos offers great shopping with an abundance of traditional stores selling hand-woven textiles and painted ceramics. In the evenings Karpathos’ many tavernas and restaurants offer a combination of good food, live music, and atmosphere although the fare is predominantly traditional Greek. Sampling the local pasta specialty, makarounes, is highly recommended.

Well worth exploring is Karpathos' mountainous centre. Menetes village is particularly pretty, with its many small churches and interesting archaeological museum. Built during the Middle Ages, the town offers breathtaking views. Similarly, Olympos is a hidden delight. Retaining many local customs not to be found anywhere else in Greece, this village is particularly renowned for its traditional costumes, still worn daily by the women, and elaborate wedding ceremonies.

Athens International Airport is the most convenient for arrivals by air. Karpathos has a small airport which is serviced by charter flights from Athens, Rhodes and Kassos weekly. Karpathos Port is serviced by a direct boat service from Athens’ Piraeus Port, as well as fast ferries from Rhodes, Kassos and Crete. On the island a good network of buses connects Karpathos town with the many beaches and villages.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
