Important information about Chania car hire

Can I cross country borders with a rental car from Chania?

If you wanted to take out car hire in Chania and are hoping to cross the border into neighbouring countries, please consult your rental company first to avoid complications. You'll typically find that several Chania car hire companies will allow cross-border travel, including Alamo, National, and Enterprise, though these may not be the only ones. When choosing a car rental that allows for border crossing, you'll come across three types of policies. The first one is where cross-border travel is free of charge, with no additional insurance costs or border fees. The second is a conditional crossing, meaning you can cross into certain countries and generally have to pay additional insurance. The third is a charge option where you'll pay a fee for crossing the border and are also likely to incur additional insurance costs. We suggest arranging a cross-border rental with the company in advance to ensure all documents are prepared for you when you pick up the vehicle.

Can you hire a car in Chania without a credit card?

Looking for cheap car rentals in Chania, Greece? You're more than likely going to need a credit card to pay for your Chania car hire. Please note that the owner of the credit card used for hiring the car needs to be present. Shop around on momondo, and you may find car rental locations in Chania that will allow you to hire a car with a debit card. You will need a card of some sort to hire a car in Chania as rental companies will not accept cash payments for security reasons. In addition, the rental company will need to put a holding charge on your card as a deposit for the car hire.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Chania?

Having arranged your car hire in Chania, you need to be aware of the traffic laws in the country to avoid getting into trouble with the law or getting fined. Firstly, the speed limits are generally enforced, so make sure you know what they are and stick to them. When travelling through built-up areas, the speed limit is 50 km/h. On e motorways, it's 120 km/h, and on most major roads, it fluctuates between 90 km/h and 110 km/h. Keep an eye out for road signs, as these limits may change as you're driving. Remember that all cars drive on the right-hand side of the road, so if you're from the UK, you may want to spend some time getting used to the car controls before driving. Also, using the horn is illegal in suburbs and towns in Greece unless there's an emergency, so keep that in mind. Yellow lines on the road indicate that parking is prohibited. We recommend finding a public car park or parking at your hotel. On-street parking in Chania can be difficult to find.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Chania?

Firstly, if you're looking for cheap car hire in Chania, you will need to be at least 21 years old and have held your driving licence for 12 months or more. Many rental companies impose a surcharge for drivers under 25 and limit their choice of car to smaller models. You will need to produce a valid credit card issued in the driver's name, a valid EU or British licence, and your passport. If you don't have an EU driving licence, you will need to present your home country's driving licence, as well as an international driving licence.
