Samothraki Guide

Located 32kms from the mainland, Samothraki is a Greek Northern Aegean Island. The island is very remote and undeveloped in comparison to other Greek islands, and offers scenes of outstanding natural beauty. Most visitors book cheap car hire in Samothraki.

Visitors arrive by boat to the island, docking in Kamariotissa, on the north-west coast. Booking car hire in Samothraki is a great way to get around the island. Most visitors to this island seek adventure and exploration, as opposed to the sun-seeking masses that frequent other islands.

Hora is the island capital, and is located five kilometres from the port. The town is very picturesque, with cobbled streets, pine trees and a Genoese Castle as a backdrop. It is possible to explore the town on foot, but having car rental in Samothraki is more convenient.

The island's top resort is Loutra, 14kms east from the main town. Hot springs and verdant scenery attract many tourists, while Mount Fengari is popular with hikers. Having car rental in Samothraki means you can visit the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, which is situated half way up the mountain.

All visitors arrive by boat as there is no airport on the island. Public transport is very limited so having your own vehicle means you can see more of the island. Most of the island's accommodation is close to the pier, along with a host of other tourist amenities.

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?
