While many travelers prefer to rely on public transportation to get around, renting a car offers many benefits that simply aren’t available with other modes of transport. Depending on what you want to get out of your trip, there are many reasons why choosing to rent a car in Mykonos might be the best decision for you.
Rent a car for speed and ease
When vacationing abroad, we have a limited amount of time to experience. A near-limitless number of sights and activities often end up cutting things we really want to do out of our itineraries. If you rent a car when traveling, however, you will have the time and convenience needed to get the most out of your adventures. (Read our guide on how to explore Mykonos by yourself)
With public transportation, you lose a great deal of time. Planning, organizing, waiting in line and making stops along the way to your different destinations. Not to mention that public transport can not take you everywhere in Mykonos. Some beaches and sights are only accessible if you hire a vehicle.
Renting a vehicle lets you travel at your own leisure and get to the spots you want to visit quickly and hassle-free. The freedom this brings will allow you to make the most of your travels without all the added stress of having to find your way around.
Rent a car for on-the-fly exploration
When exploring a new country, it can sometimes be fun to explore outside of the common tourist-trap areas. Our rental services include the option of a GPS system, providing you with the perfect opportunity for exploration off the beaten track without getting lost. We will also recommend the best vehicle depending on your needs.
Exploring can give you a unique perspective of Mykonos that you might not find if you stay in the most popular areas.
Rent a car to save money as a group
Solo travelers understandably have less financial apprehension with using public transportation on vacation. Families and groups, on the other hand, can quickly rack up hefty bills using taxis.
Renting a car is usually the more economical choice when traveling in a group. And yes, it’s generally cost-efficient, even with car rental insurance and gas factored into the equation. Parents with small children, like us, know that public transit can sometimes be a headache and make your vacation more stressful.
Rent a car for comfort
Last but not least, having your own car gives you a certain level of comfort that just simply isn’t there with public transport. Especially if you’re with the family. Plus, you get to control the radio!
