Chania - Platanias Guide


Chania is the 2nd largest city on the beautiful island of Crete and Platanias is a suburb on the outskirts of Chania. Located on the central northern coast, Platanias is a perfect gateway to explore the rest of Crete.

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and 5th largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a popular vacation spot for Greeks, as well as international visitors. Crete is home to not only some amazing beaches, but also incredible ancient ruins. Booking a hire car is the perfect way to explore this beautiful island and recommended by many tourists.

Chania is made up the old town and modern town. Both of these are worth exploring during your visit. The old town is characterised by its narrow and cobble-stoned streets and the modern town is characterised by the numerous aristocratic houses and the Court House Square.

Crete is also home to natural beauty as well. The island is extremely mountainous and for those tired of the beach life, should head to the mountains. The most famous are the Psiloritis and Asterousia Mountains.

Crete has three airports including Nikos Kazantzakis (Heraklion), Daskalgiannis (Chania) and Sitia. Heraklion Airport and Chania Airport operate international flights and Sitia Airport operates domestic flights.

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).
