Heraklion Airport (HER)

Heraklion 716 01, Greece

Serving the island of Crete, Heraklion Airport is the second-busiest airport in Greece. Many visitors pick up a hire car at the airport, so they have the freedom to explore the picturesque island at their leisure, and drive to the popular tourist resorts of Elounda, Stalis, Hersonissos and Agios Nikolaos.

Around 8.5 million passengers use the airport each year, and at, we help many of those holidaymakers find their ideal hire car at a great price.

Finding a great deal

We help you compare prices on a number of car hire companies at Heraklion Airport (including major brands like Hertz, Avis and Budget, as well as local firms such as Caldera) and bring you exclusive deals on a wide range of car groups.

With such a lot of companies to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one offers the best rental experience and overall value for money. To help you get a better understanding of each company, we ask each customer to provide feedback when they rent with us — so you get access to impartial advice. You can see their ratings and reviews next to each car listing.

We explain everything that’s included in your rental upfront, meaning you won’t face any nasty surprises when you go to pick up your car at the counter.

Don’t forget: by booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy, you will avoid hidden fuel charges (as long as you drop the car off with a full tank). You will find a fantastic choice of cars with this fuel policy at Heraklion Airport.

Choice of cars

Whether you want a spacious people carrier, a stylish convertible or something small and practical (like the mini and economy cars), you can quickly find the perfect hire car for you. You can filter the search results to show cars with specific features (like air conditioning), suppliers, ratings, pick-up locations and fuel policies — to make finding your ideal car even simpler.

Most of the car hire companies have their counter in the terminal itself, giving you the simplest possible start to your holiday.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    The airport is close to the E75, which takes you to all the major tourist resorts along Crete’s northern coast. When leaving the airport, follow the wide road which runs from the airport to the E75. The first exit onto the E75 will take you towards Rethymnon and Chania, while the second will take you towards Agios Nikolaos.
  • 2
    If you’re happy to take a shuttle bus or use a ‘meet & greet’ service to get to the pick-up location, hiring with a company based away from the airport can be a great way of saving money.
  • 3
    The airport can get busy during the summer months. To get your rental off to a rapid start, you may wish to leave one person waiting for your suitcases at the carousel — while the driver heads to the rental counter.
  • 4
    Make sure your hire car has air conditioning to keep you comfortable in the heat. Crete is at its hottest between May and September.
  • 5
    Book your car hire as far in advance as possible if you want to secure the best price as well as the type of car you want.
