Rethymno Guide

Nestled on the north coast of Crete, Rethymno is a picturesque harbour town surrounded by high rocky mountains. With a Venetian history dating back centuries, Rethymno today is an eccentric blend of traditional and modern elements.

Rethymno is renowned for its many ancient monuments, and Arkadi Monastery is the town’s most famous attraction. Consisting of large fortress-like buildings and an impressive church, its elaborate central entrance is particularly stunning. The imposing 15th century Fortezza fortress is famous for its unusual star shape and is similarly popular.

Built around the busy harbour, Rethymno’s picturesque streets maintain an air of the Venetian period, with many arched doorways, stone staircases and churches. Arabatzoglou Street is the main commercial strip and from here on foot the visitor can venture to Loggia district, home to the Archaeological Museum and Historic Folklore Museum exhibiting various examples of Cretan art. Centrally located, Rethymno’s municipal gardens are ideal for those in search of shade and tranquillity.

As well as great shopping, Rethymno offers a varied nightlife, from vibrant pubs around the harbour and old city to relaxed beach bars and restaurants famous for their fresh seafood specialties. Rethynmo also hosts many festivals - the annual Crete Wine and Renaissance Festival is particularly popular.

There is much to see in the surrounding region. Argiroupolis village on the river Mousselas is the site of the ancient Roman city of Lapa. The village is pleasant to stroll around and is located near Crete’s natural springs. On the coast, the seashore settlement of Adelianos Kambos boasts a beautiful beach and is perfect for swimming and water sports.

Rethymno doesn’t have an airport and is served by the nearby Chania International Airport. Flights from Athens (one hour) and other major European cities arrive daily and regular public buses ply the route to Rethymno. A direct ferry connects Athens’ Piraeus Port and Rethymno daily.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
