Thassos Skala Prinos Guide

Thassos lies just off the north-eastern coast of mainland Greece, and is the most northerly of the Aegean group of islands. It is an immensely green island, filled with thick pine forests and wooded hills. Fortunately, Thassos has been spared from the commercialized mass tourism that has affected many of the other Greek islands. With its archaeological sites and numerous beaches, it is the ideal holiday destination for the discerning visitor who wants to avoid big crowds.

Skala Potamia is one of the more popular beaches on the island, with its large triangle of white sand. It does not lack in tavernas and bars, and it can get quite busy in the summer months. Paradiso Beach is exceptionally beautiful, with its long stretch of white sand sheltered by high cliffs. If you walk a short distance to the south, you will find a number of dreamlike secluded coves.

Thassos Town has a charming, old fishing harbour filled with restaurants and cafes. Above the town, you will find an old Roman amphitheatre where performances are held in the summer. Nearby, there are the well-preserved city walls as well as the ruins of the Acropolis and its Temples of Apollo and Athena. There are also a number of old churches and monasteries that you can visit. The most visited one is probably the Monastery of Vatopediou, which is considered to be the symbol of Thassos Town.

It is recommended that you rent a car if you want to explore some of the scenic hillside villages on the eastern coast of the island. The closest airport to Thassos is the International Airport of Kavala, near the town of Keramoti on the mainland. From Keramoti, there are daily ferryboats that bring you directly into Thassos Town.

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).
