Rhodes Airport Guide

Car Hire

Rhodes Airport, known locally as Diagoras Airport, is the third-busiest airport in Greece. Located in the northern part of the island of Rhodes, the airport is located just outside the town of Paradisi and nine miles from the capital city of Rhodes. Rhodes is a beautiful island which is well worth exploring with car hire in Rhodes Airport. Other transportation options at the airport include taxis and buses.

Who to Book With
Self-drive is a popular transportation option for those visiting Rhodes. At the airport, visitors will find leading international companies, such as Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt. Car hire desks are located in the Arrivals hall, next to the exit doors.

Need to Know Essentials
Passengers will need at least the below documents to pick up their rental car at Reus Airport:

- UK driver’s licence (both parts), a EU licence or an International Driving Permit
- Credit card used to make the reservation
- Passport or photo ID
- Reservation number or confirmation of booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

Proper documentation is important in Greece and drivers should always keep to hand their driver’s licence and car hire and insurance documents. The inability to present these documents when stopped by police can lead to incarceration. Radar detectors are illegal in Greece and drivers may be fined for using one. Children under the age of five must use a child seat and children under the age of 10 may not sit in the front seat. Many roads on Rhodes are narrow and overtaking vehicles can be dangerous and should be avoided. 24-hour petrol stations are few and visitors should check petrol requirements before heading out of the urban areas. Carrying a warning triangle is a must.

See our guide to Greece for more information on driving here.


Rhodes is a great island to explore by self-driving, providing visitors with access to coastal areas that might be difficult to reach otherwise. Public transportation can be unreliable so using a car to get to and from the airport is a good choice. However, buses and taxis also serve the city centre from the airport. Traffic on Rhodes can be heavy so travellers should leave ample time to get to the airport.

Taxis are a cheap and convenient option on Rhodes. There is a taxi stand right outside the Arrivals area of the terminal building. All taxis are metered, but travellers should make sure the meter is re-set when getting in. The meter fare should start at around £2.70. There are extra charges levied for trips to the airport as well as luggage charges. Meter rates are double between 00:00 and 05:00. Visitors should note that most taxi drivers do not speak English, so they should have their hotel name and address written in Greek to show the driver. The journey time from the airport to the city centre of Rhodes is about 25 minutes. Taxis are provided by Rhodes Taxi and Transportation Services.

Taxi prices:
Rhodes Airport to Rhodes city centre is about £12
Rhodes Airport to Kremasti is about £10
Rhodes Airport to Lardos is about £55
Rhodes Airport to Tholos is about £10

Buses with connections to Rhodes city centre depart from the bus stop located about 300 metres from the terminal building. The journey takes about 20 minutes and buses leave every 40 minutes. Tickets can be purchased directly from the driver and cost about £3. The buses are operated by DES Roda and cover routes from the airport to Rhodes as well to places on the western side of the island. Long distance routes along the eastern coast of the island are on offer with KTEL Rodos. Olympic Airways also has shuttle buses to the city centre that coincide with its flight arrivals. Visitors should note that buses run less frequently on weekends.

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.
