Top Driving Tips
  1. You need to be slightly careful whilst driving as, like many small islands, the locals have a certain way of driving. They aren't bad drivers but can be inpatient and something's lack manners. Do your research and follow every sign you see and you should be fine.

At the Airport
  1. The island has two international airport with the main being the Heraklion. This will change in 2015 with the opening of a new airport which will see the end of Heraklion. As you can imagine, the current airport is rather small and has the simplest needs but still an efficient airport.

Airport Location  
  1. Heraklion airport is only half an hour away from Heraklion city. Crete is pretty small so you can get to the East and the West in just over a couple of hours and the most Southerly point in an hour and a half.

Car Hire at the Airport
  1. Car Hire is pretty well represented at the airport with multiple companies having desks in terminal or several options close by which will require a shuttle service of pre-arranged car drop off.
