Santorini Car Rental: What to watch when travelling with children
Are you planning a holiday on Santorini island with your family? Fortunately, there are many islands in Greece that are suitable for a holiday with children, such as Santorini.
The problem is that islands are far from Athens and Thessaloniki, so travelling with your own car aboard so many hours is not always the best option. You should prefer to rent a car from Santorini Car Rental.
If you finally decide to travel by plane, since all these islands have an airport, car rental is the most economic way, since Santorini is a big island with many interesting sights to visit.
So what do you have to look for when you rent a car in Greece with your children?
Renting the car you want online has many advantages, such as major discounts, offers and variety in models. In addition, it is particularly helpful for large groups and families, since you have done all the preparation from your computer and you will not waste any time. Once you have landed at the airport, the car you rented will be waiting for you at no extra cost and you will immediately start for your first destination.
On the other hand, if you do not book in advance you will have to wait a long time at the airport until you choose the right car and your children with the fatigue of the flight probably will not appreciate it much…
If you are over 23 years old and drive for over two years then you can rent any car you want. Small cars are, of course, the cheapest, but when travelling with children and having a lot of things and suitcases, we suggest you choose an SUV that will allow you to go anywhere you want.
When travelling with children and renting a car, it is preferable to choose your mixed insurance coverage for each damage with a small deduction from the final amount and an extra charge per day, which is by no means prohibitive. Security should be our first obligation!
Very useful will be the GPS in case you rent a car with your family. The last thing you want is to get lost searching for the beach with the kids crying eagerly. The advantage of a GPS in the car in contrast to the one on the mobile is that the one in the car does not need internet signal, which in some areas on many islands is not always feasible.
In addition, many car rental companies store within the GPS the most popular sightseeings, so you have a two-in-one device: navigation system along with a travel guide!
