Car rental

Renting a car is a less expensive option if you want to discover the Peloponnese and don't like spending time in one place. Many beaches or smaller resorts are not accessible by bus at all, or only 1-2 times a day.

Expect prices in the summer season from 380 eur. In the off-season, rental prices on the Peloponnese peninsula drop to less than half. Where is the best place to book a car? Use the comparison engine to find offers from all car rental companies and you can make your reservation right there.
