    Rental Cars in Rhodes

    by jhonnebier Written May 21, 2013

    To really "live" the island you would need at least 3 full days and nights. Monolithos and Lachania (try find condo on the beach, it's worth it!) were perfect sleeping stops.

    We asked the owner of our Rhodos city hotel for a reliable car rental and she sent us to "Margaritis" rent a car. Actually, we called Margaritis and they came to pick us up from the taxi stand in the old city. We found Margaritis not to be the most inexpensive (30 euros with full insurance) but their service was incredibly friendly and fast, the car was perfect. They even waited for us to bring the car back fár too late in the evening, well after closing time ánd they brought us to the front door of our hotel! Ask for Dimitri. their number is 22410 37420

    Renting a Car...

    by hungariangirl896 Written Feb 2, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Rhodes, probably the best (and most comfortable) way to get around is renting a car. It's really easy to navigate there (especially in the countryside), and you can drive around the entire island in 1 day. It's nice to drive along the ocean and leisurely stop whenever you find a point of interest to see. The best place to rent a car in Rhodes is at Zeus cars. You can get "full" insurance and don't have to pay for extra kilometers. I stopped and looked at many rental car places, and Zeus offered the best prices by far. I think it's the cheapest rental car place in Rhodes Town. You can also rent motorbikes there.

    Ferry between Rhodes & Marmaris(Turkey)

    by Arkeolog Written Mar 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also you can go to Marmaris(Turkey) from Rhodes by ferry or hydrofoil. It takes aprox. 1,5 hours.

    More about Marmaris:Once a little fishing port, Marmaris has developed into one of Turkey’s busiest and most Anglicized resorts. Its port welcomes luxury cruise liners, which disgorge passengers keen to sample the town’s extensive facilities and visit the ancient sites nearby - the biblical city of Efes where the stories in the Bible come alive, (the second biggest city of Roman Empire, after Rome); another sightseeing place not to be missed is Pamukkale&Hierapolis, that is considered to be the 8th world wonder (And added into UNESCO's World Heritage List).

    Bus stop blues

    by gilabrand Updated Mar 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Based on my experience, I wouldn’t count on the public buses in Rhodes. None of the bus stops had any numbers on them, and practically the only ones I saw during my stay were tourist coaches. The buses did not seem to keep to any schedule. I waited at the bus stop for a bus to the airport, which was supposed to run every half hour. After a while, it sunk in that no bus was coming and we hailed a taxi. Lucky we did. We almost missed our plane.

    Apparently, the schedules change every week. So if you insist on getting around by bus, pick up a timetable at the kiosk behind the New Market building – and remember: None of this is etched in stone.

    Renting a car in Rhodes is a much better option for travel - at least outside the city. The whole experience of car rental here was amazingly quick and headache-free (and I say this as someone who rarely rents a car overseas).

    Nice bus stop, no bus

    Boat to Lindos

    by SallyM Written Aug 30, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We thought it would be nice to take a boat trip from Rhodes Town to Lindos, rather than go by bus. It was, but on arrival in Lindos, the boat moored in the bay, and we had to disembark by means of an upturned milk crate.

    If you do this, I recommend wearing sandals or flip flops!

    The "Taxis" of Lindos

    by Fam.Rauca Written Jun 8, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The “Taxis” of Lindos are the donkeys.

    The tourists have the possibility to drive on the back of the donkeys, and to enjoy the beautiful way, trough the town.

    You can make the distance from the main square to the Acropolis Castle, only for a price of 5 Euro.

    The owners of the donkeys protect you and make your trip safely.

    Cheapest and most cosy way to really get around

    by akoufou Written Apr 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Leaving in Rhodes, the cheapest way to get around the island (as in all Greece) is to rent a car in a bargainable deal through single family businesses (not big firms that require prebooking and give a fixed price).
    This way you can
    1. Get a small car for as low as 15-20 Euro per day full insurance (u do not need a big one either).
    2. Go to places undiscovered by all popular travel guides through asking the locals (like me).
    3. Discover gem beaches
    4. Avoid many walking hours in the sun from/to the busses/stops
    5. Be on your OWN schedule
    6. Avoid waiting in a siesta manner bus stop!
    7. Parking is free and safe everywhere but in the historic centre.
    p.s. motorcycle is as good but not so safeplus the SUN!

    Local Bus Service

    by doodybee Written Nov 14, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Use the local buses around the island whereever possible - it can save having an accident - especially for us Brits who are not used to driving on that side of the road.
    They are plentiful in high season and can get you more or less anywhere on the island while you take in the scenery( added bonus).

    Also used the sightseeing tour around Rhodes Town which comes included with a 24hr bus ticket price ( we bought one for Ancient Kamiros & the Acropolis ).
