KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ios

  • Booking a car hire in Los is highly recommended for exploring the island at your own pace. Go where you want to, when you want to, and be the master of your destiny! The public transport system is fairly good on the island but who wants to waste time waiting for a bus, or have to cut your relaxing beach day short due to public transport schedules that end way before the sun sets? Head to a beach like Manganari Beach or drive to the top of the Chora at your own speed and spend as much time taking selfies as you like.
  • The closest airport to Los is Santorini International Airport (JTR). You'll need to take a ferry to Los from the airport, which can be an issue when looking at taking your cheap car hire in Los on the ferry. You'll need to get permission in advance from the car hire company you book with, and some don't allow it. If you are allowed to take the vehicle on the ferry, just be careful about the tight parking, which could be hard to get in and out of, if the ferry is full.
  • Driving your car hire in Los is much more relaxed than driving on some of the larger islands in Greece, as soon as you get used to the sometimes narrow and turning roads. The road quality can also be bad in some areas so watch out for that, but other than that it's pretty easy. One thing that might be alarming at times, is when a driver pulls up behind you and flashes their lights. This mostly happens when locals are trying to pass behind you. Don't panic, it's just a way for them to ask you to move over, so if you can do so without any hassle, go ahead.
  • The difficult driving in Los comes into play when driving on the hilly roads along the coastal routes. The roads can reach great heights and often don't have protective barriers boarding them, which can be a bit scary for inexperienced drivers, especially when the roads get narrow and windy. When driving in the centre of the island you'll see that there are not many traffic lights, so heading through intersections with caution is recommended.
  • Book your car hire in Ios at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Ios are around 0% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Los?

    When considering the best car hire in Los, the first thing to think about is horsepower. Smaller cars are best for navigating the narrow roads, but you'll need a fair amount of power for getting up and down the hills. An automatic transmission is also recommended to make the climbs and descents easier. The mini is a great choice of car, with a good balance of power and size. It has a solid output and a 2L engine, which is more than enough power to manoeuvre the light-bodied car with minimal effort.

  • What’s the speed limit in Los?

    It's easy to see what the speed limit is when driving as the whole island is well signposted. When driving on most roads on the island you'll be allowed to drive between 100 km/ph and 120 km/ph while on highways. Smaller secondary roads have a limit of 90 km/ph. The speed limit drops to 50 km/ph in residential areas and is 30 km/ph on most single-lane hilly roads. If you are a first-time driver on the island, the best bet is to go slow, let local drivers overtake you when you can and reduce your speed to 30 km/ph on gravel roads.

  • Where are the best places to park in Los?

    When looking for parking for your car hire in Los it's best to check that your hotel has parking, because finding a parking spot on the sometimes crowded streets can be hard at times. There are parking lots, but they are often full especially from May to September, which is considered the high tourist times. There are a few paid parking lots but generally, you won't be able to park there for longer than 3 hours at a time.
