    Car hire in Zakynthos at the best prices

    Discover the panoramic beauty of the Ionian islands with a car hire in Zakynthos. The stunning island is famous for its crystal clear waters, brilliant seaside, secluded coves, as well as the iconic Navagio Beach. Navagio Beach is also known as Shipwreck beach due to the events on October 2, 1980. A freightliner ran aground in the waters around Navagio Beach after stormy weather and the ship was abandoned. It still rests buried in the white sandy dunes of the beach. Another place to visit whilst on the island is the National Marine Park of Zakynthos. Here you will encounter surreal surroundings and have a chance to view the marine life, as Zakynthos is a preferred habitat of oceanic animals, such as the loggerhead sea turtle.

    Traffic

    Driving is not too difficult on the island but be careful to pay attention to the Zakynthian traffic as some smaller roads are not in the same condition as the main roads are. The surface of these roads may become slippery from oil, sand and salt from the ocean, so be sure to take care. The west side of the island is more mountainous, whereas the east is much flatter. Remember when driving your car hire in Zakynthos to keep well over to the right to let the locals pass you, as some drivers may be more lenient on the road.

    Auto Europe has also put together a guide to driving in Greece. Please take a look at it before your journey.

    Parking

    There are less restrictions with parking on Zakynthos when compared to other destinations in Greece but be sure to look out for the odd parking sign. The main town, and some tourist resorts, have areas where parking is only allowed on one side, depending on odd or even months.

    Geographic Information

    Zakynthos lies in the eastern part of the Ionian sea, around twelve miles west of the Greek mainland. The island is located just south of the islands Kefalonia and Lefkada. The climate of Zakynthos is Mediterranean, with mild and rainy winters, and hot and sunny summers.

    Zakynthos Airport

    Zakynthos Airport is located five miles south from the city centre and is easily accessible with a rental car. There is no direct bus between the town and the airport, so a car hire in Zakynthos is a wise choice.

    Public Transportation

    Getting around Zakynthos is quite easy. A public bus is available and connects the most popular resorts across the island. In high season the buses start early in the morning and run into the evening. Bus timetables are found at the stops. It is also possible to catch a ferry to mainland Greece, where you can visit cities such as Athens.
