Are you thinking of rent a car On Crete? You can rent a car and drive all around island from east to the west in 5 hours . The Crete highway is often referred to as the “national road” and if you rent car crete you have to follow that road and reach from one end to the other . The drive along the easily cleared two-path national expressway is fine generally. In the Greek Islands, there’s less traffic, but you have to be alert for goats and sheep wandering in the middle of highways, especially on sharp corners, or locals riding donkeys down country roads. But there are some particular perils to beware of. Greeks seem to drive very fast, and tend to drive closely behind other vehicles.Their tailgating isn’t much of an issue if you’re driving a vehicle with automatic transmission, but since those are few and far between on the islands, chances are good that you’ll be driving a standard — so when you’re forced to stop on a steep slope with another car just inches behind, it’s a big challenge to avoid a bumper bump.
