It is possible to rent a car in Skiathos with the aim of reaching its more than 60 beaches and coves, from the most famous and crowded to the most remote and isolated ones. The best thing to do, to avoid a scarce availability of cars and to get the best deal, is to book the car in advance via internet well before departure.

The island is not large, but a rental car will allow you to venture off the beaten path to find some of the most beautiful and peaceful bays and coves. As for payment, when booking make sure that the credit card is in the name of the driver, or one of the travelers.

Frequently asked questions about car rental in Skiathos

Here are some quick answers to the most common doubts about car rental in Skiathos.

More and more people are choosing to rent a car to reduce contacts and increase social distancing, avoiding the often crowded public transport.

Car rental companies are committed to higher hygiene standards to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus.

All the safety measures we are accustomed to are taken at the rental desks and the cars are disinfected after each rental, especially the areas most at risk, such as seats, gearboxes, handles and steering wheel.

Undoubtedly yes. During the pandemic, almost all car rental companies in Skiathos were forced to reduce their car fleet to reduce operating costs.

When tourism in Skiathos has restarted, due to the crisis in raw materials and electronic components, they have not managed to buy back enough cars.

The consequence is that today every company has far fewer cars than in 2019 and cannot cope with the high demand. This leads to higher prices and less availability, especially during the high season.

The advice we give you is therefore to book the car well in advance, both to get the best prices but above all to be sure of having a rental car.

To reserve a car in Skiathos a credit card or debit card is sufficient. However, when you go to collect the car, you will need:

  • a credit card in the name of the driver. Debit and ATM cards are not accepted;
  • copy of the reservation;
  • a driving license valid for at least 12 months;
  • an identity document.

The car rental companies in Skiathos allow to rent a car to all those who are between 21 and 70 years old. However, there is an additional cost for under 25 and for those over 70.

A car rental in Skiathos always includes:

  • theft insurance;
