KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Karpathos

  • Karpathos car rentals are the best way to get around the city with flexibility and ease. While there is public transport available on this island, it runs on fixed schedules and can often take a long time to get to the destination as buses often make several stops along the way. Car rentals in Karpathos allow you to explore the island at your own pace and get to far corners of the island, such as Olympos in the north, that you may have taken a long time to get to otherwise.
  • If you are flying into Karpathos Island National Airport (AOK), you can pick up your rental car directly from an airport rental location. There are more than five agencies providing car rentals in Karpathos here, including big names like National, Alamo, Budget, and Thrifty. You will find desks for all these agencies directly in the arrivals terminal near baggage claim, so there’s no need for ground transport to an off-airport location. If the airport rental locations do not have what you are looking for, there are also a few rental agencies within a few miles of the airport, including the Arkasa area.
  • Driving around Karpathos can be moderately challenging depending on what part of the island you are exploring. Karpathos is characterized by mountain landscapes, which means you will encounter many steep, winding, and narrow roads. Drive on the right-hand side of the road. In Karpathos, it is illegal to have your mobile phone in your hand while driving, so be sure to use a hands-free navigation device when you are behind the wheel.
  • Luckily, Karpathos is off the beaten path for the tourist market, so most of the other cars you will encounter on the roads will be locals. This means that you will not encounter too much traffic while you are driving car rentals in Karpathos. However, like most other places, you may experience a morning rush from 7 am until 9 am and an evening rush around 6 pm.
  • Book your rental car in Karpathos at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Karpathos are around 10% cheaper than other car types, on average

Mini sedans and other compact vehicles are quite popular here. If you are not used to driving a manual vehicle, you may want to opt for an automatic as manual vehicles require a lot of gear changes on this type of terrain.

  • What’s the speed limit in Karpathos?

    There are no highways or toll roads in or around Karpathos, so the speed limits you’ll encounter won’t vary too much from place to place. The standard speed limit in Karpathos is 35 mph on city roads and in the surrounding areas. Sometimes it may be lower, especially on school roads or around natural attractions like beaches, so always follow all posted signage and adjust your speed accordingly.

  • Where are the best places to park in Karpathos?

    Parking is not difficult to find in Karpathos. Usually at attractions like beaches, there will be a small parking lot and you will find parking along the road once the lot is full. These spaces are typically free. You can also find parking at major attractions and monuments such as Alexandros Papagos Square and Captain Konstantinos Iliakis Monument. Keep in mind that parking spaces here are narrow, so this is another advantage to renting a compact car. If you are staying at a hotel in the city, these will also often offer free parking onsite to their guests. There are no paid parking lots in Karpathos, so no need to worry about parking fees.

Pros:

Rental car agent was very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

We were not given the type of car we reserved. I had to return it the next day for something else. I need to contact Budget in order to request a refund for the difference between the two cars.
