Top tips for hiring a car in Rhodes

  • Hiring a car in Rhodes is a great way to explore the island at your own pace. You will find the roads across the island are good quality and safe to drive on. You can enjoy cruising around the island in any two-wheel-drive car, so it isn’t necessary for a 4X4. However, you might find hiring a smaller car is more convenient for you when it comes to the narrow roads on the island and also parking in the towns.
  • It is important that you follow the laws of the road when you are driving in Rhodes, or you risk being prosecuted by local authorities. For example, drink-driving is a very serious crime on the island and there is zero-tolerance for it. The limit is 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood, which is strictly enforced. It is also the responsibility of the adult to ensure that children under 12 years old or shorter than 135cm are in a child seat that is the correct size for them. All passengers in the car must also wear a seat belt or risk being fined.
  • When you are driving in Rhodes, you will find that there is a lot of free parking across the island. However, in Rhodes City itself, a lot of the parking is paid parking only. In the old town, it is almost unheard of to find free street parking. When you want to park, be aware of the road markings, which will act as a guide to where you can and can’t park. White lines mean you can park for free for 24h. Blue lines mean you need a ticket unless it’s a Sunday. Whilst yellow lines mean no parking under any conditions.
  • Book your rental car in Rhodes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Rhodes are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Rhodes

  • Should I hire a car in Rhodes?

    You should hire a car in Rhodes, as it gives you an opportunity to explore every corner of the island at your own pace, rather than following the schedule of public transport. For example, if you were staying in Rhodes City, then you could drive to Prasonisi Lighthouse on the south part of the island in about 1h 30min. To opt for a bus would take longer to reach this tourist hotspot, whilst a taxi there and back would be quite expensive.

  • What is driving like in Rhodes?

    When you are driving in Rhodes, it might take you a bit of time to acclimatise, as it is different to driving in the United Kingdom. Firstly, you will notice that you are driving on the right side of the road rather than the left, which may take some getting used to, and you will notice that the wheel of the vehicle is on the opposite side as well. The speed limits are quite similar to that of the UK, so you will know not to speed around the island. There are two motorways on the island, which have a limit of 80kmh (50mph). For urban areas, the maximum speed is 50kmh (31mph), so you will need to keep an eye out for the signs.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Rhodes?

    When you are hiring a car in Rhodes, you will have to be a minimum of 21 years of age, with some car hire branches requiring you to be even older. It is worth checking the policy of each one before you arrive to ensure you meet the criteria. Many car agencies will also require you to have held your license for at least one year. Those younger than a certain age, often 23, will have to pay a surcharge in addition to the standard hire price. There will also be less selection available to younger drivers, with many companies reserving cars with more powerful engines for more experienced drivers.
