The small town of Plakias on Crete has grown over the last few decades into a quiet and friendly tourist resort town. Only 50 years ago it was home to just a handful of fishermen that plied their trade in the Libyan Sea. Today it is still serene with ample amount of amenities.
Car hire in Plakias can take you along the single road that takes you along with beach on one side and hotels, bars and restaurants on the other. There is small harbour and from here visitors can charter a boat to ferry them to more secluded beach that are hard to reach by land.
The town is backed by rolling hills and is popular among walkers in the cooler months of April and May, this also the time when the countryside is full of colour. Many trekking sites can be reached by car rental in Plakias so there is an alternative to getting back if it gets to hot.
For a small town there are no shortage of restaurants to choose from most serving international dishes and local food. For a more authentic head to Myrthios in a cheap car hire in Plakias. It is only a few short miles away and has some local tavernas offering traditional dishes.
There are many great things to do on the island of Crete and it is a large island to travel around. The roads are largely well maintained and safe to travel but some routes do go onto unsealed roads that can be dangerous during bad weather.

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.
