Santorini is an island on which you can get around pretty well on a quad (ATV) or scooter, but as it is slowly getting a bit rainier here this time of the year, it is a good idea to have a look what the Santorini car rent companies have to offer. Don’t be scared, the fact that I mentioned rain does not mean it will be super cold and raining all the time — take a look at my article on the Santorini weather in Autumn. In short, you have nothing to worry about; the super warm weather will be interrupted by light showers sometimes, that’s all.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s get back to renting a car. There are several things to consider when looking for your car rent company. First of all, ask where should you leave your car after using it — the island of Santorini is such a small place that most car rent companies allow you to park and leave your car pretty much anywhere after you’re done using it. Of course, you have to take into account the place where you have to pick up the actual car, sometimes it’s easier to pick a car rent closer to your hotel, even if they ask you to bring the car back to their shop. It’s worth calling a few of the car rents and asking if they offer to deliver the rental car to your doorstep — it really saves time you would otherwise spend going to pick the car up. One last thing to remember is that Santorini has all sorts of narrow streets and parking is really a pain sometimes, so it’s probably wiser to go with a smaller rental car.
Well, that’s it in short. Happy driving!
