Are you planning your next summer trip to the beautiful island of Karpathos? You will surely have many questions about how to best organize your trip and what you need to know before renting a car to save hassle and time. Below we give you some tips that will help you make the best choice in car rental.
Karpathos is the second largest island of the Dodecanese, rich in activities and places to relax. So, if you want to visit most of the mountainous locations and swim in the cool, blue waters of most of the island's beaches, then car rental is a must.
If you know the dates you will be on the island, then book your tickets immediately. Don't forget that early booking will ensure you a better price and the vehicle of your choice.
Ammopi Car Rental serves with car rental services all areas of the island. Whether you land at the airport or anchor at the port, all you have to do is inform us of your arrival time and place. The same applies to the delivery of your car.
No matter how experienced a driver you are, you are human. At some point you may feel unwell or experience fatigue from constant driving. We therefore advise you to register a second driver in case of an emergency. Registering a second driver is free of charge.
At Ammopi Car Rental we care about the safety of both large and small travelers. Our agency provides you with child seats at no extra charge, so that the whole family can always travel safely.
This choice depends mainly on your experience as a driver and your final destination. If you have no experience in a car with a gearbox, then we definitely recommend choosing a car with an automatic gearbox. Also, the automatic transmission is more practical for your city commute. However, if you choose to move around the island, then we definitely recommend renting a car with a gearbox because of the ease when accelerating on open roads.
No matter how experienced a driver you are, driving in a foreign country and a place you don't know has its challenges. The unique character of Karpathos' landscapes, the mountainous and rural network makes driving difficult in many cases. We therefore recommend that the driver is experienced in both years of driving and the more demanding provincial networks.
To rent a car you must be at least 21 years old and your license must be valid for one year from the day of rental.
You need a valid driver's license, passport or ID card and a credit card in the name of the registered driver.
Car rental does not include any mileage restrictions. You can drive as many kilometers as you wish every day.
Yes, upon notification, you can leave the car at a different destination from the one you picked it up.
You can cancel your reservation free of charge up to 7 days before the scheduled pick-up date.
Inform our company immediately and follow carefully the instructions we will give you. Please do not leave the scene of the accident unless there is an injury.
Of course! For our agency the safety of young travelers is a priority.
Loss of keys is not included in the insurance coverage package. If you lose the car keys, you will be charged the cost of new keys.
