Mykonos extends for 86 square kilometers, and its highest point reaches 341 meters above sea level. It offers so much, both to those who want to enjoy the sea and to those who are looking for fun and nightlife: an enchanting island, for adult couples, young romantics or friends looking for entertainment.
Although many of the islands of Greece, including Mykonos, have an adequate public transportation system, there are always some secluded areas that are only accessible by private car. This is especially true on islands like Mykonos, where there are many hidden areas and coves with gorgeous beaches ready to be explored that are simply unreachable any other way.
To visit Mykonos in complete autonomy and freedom, without depending on the schedules of public transport and to reach the most secluded beaches, the advice we give you is to rent a car, because it is undoubtedly the cheapest way to see as much as possible, especially when the only alternative is to shell out money for cabs or wait for buses often overcrowded.
Even if gasoline is not particularly cheap on the island, renting a car in Mykonos is the best way to explore and not be subjected to the uncertain and fickle buses, especially on Sundays or holidays; in this way you will always have complete autonomy that will make your vacation a pleasure.
The roads in Mykonos are on average in excellent condition, and the panoramic views will leave even the most seasoned travelers breathless. Gas stations can be very far from each other, so it is advisable to fill up right away.
As soon as you land at the Mykonos airport, you can pick up your car from the car rental offices at the airport and drive to your hotel, your vacation home or your rented apartment.
Remember that especially during the months of July and August many tourists choose Mykonos as their summer destination and the availability of rental cars ends weeks in advance, so book your car online and when you arrive at the airport you only have to pick up the keys.
Car rental companies that have an office at the island’s international airport, such as Europecar, Avis, Sixt, Budget or Hertz, offer a wide range of vehicles of various categories, with options that can be adapted to suit your vacation needs: free delivery and pickup, child seats, additional driver, unlimited mileage, full insurance and much more.
Some tips for car rental: first of all, given the high tourist demand in Mykonos, look for the perfect car a few months in advance, direct. When booking be sure that the credit card belongs to the driver, or at least to one of the travelers. You can choose to insure the vehicle with or without a deductible, depending on your requirements and level of experience.
As for the fuel policy, there are finally two options. You can choose between full/full, which means that you will receive the rental car with a full tank and you will have to return it with a full tank, or full/empty, which means that you will receive the car with a full tank and you will have to return it as dry as possible, because you will not be reimbursed for the excess fuel.
