Location information for Chalkidiki

Introduction

Chalkidiki is a peninsula in the north east of Greece. It has a remarkable shape that looks like a hand with three fingers. The three fingers that stick out into the Aegean Sea are the peninsulas Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos. The southern part of this last peninsula is the domain of 1,800 Greek Orthodox monks who live there in twenty monasteries. That entire part is listed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO and is only reachable by boat and women are not allowed.

Population

Chalkidki has about 110,000 inhabitants, mainly concentrated in the capital Polygyros and on the far western peninsula Kassandra.

Location

Chalkidiki lies in the north-east of Greece and forms part of Greek Macedonia. The second city of Greece, Thessaloniki, lies approximately 100 kilometers north of Chalkidiki.

Economy

Chalkidiki is known for its wine production. The conditions are perfect with mild winters and warm and dry summers. Especially around Neos Marmaras on the peninsula Sithonia there are many vineyards. Furthermore olives are cultivated, of which a large part is processed into olive oil. Near the towns Nikiti and Arnea they produce excellent honey.

All three fingers have excellent beaches and tourism is of great importance to the local economy. Not only the beaches, but also the relics from the Greek ancient times attract visitors.

Airports

Chalkidiki itself does not have an airport. Most foreign tourists arrive at the airport of Thessaloniki and continue their journey over land.

Public transport

The larger towns on the peninsulas have regular bus connections. However, do take into account that the frequency is much lower in winter than in summer.

Traffic and parking

Driving in Chalkidiki is not that much different than in the rest of Greece. Greeks tend to pay less attention to the traffic rules, but if you drive safely and defensively it is unlikely that you will have a problem. In the tourist centers it can become very crowded, especially in summer.

To explore the three peninsulas a rental car is essential. Driving to the north is also one of the best ways to get to know the region. It is more mountainous and sometimes with narrow and curvy roads.

Hotels

In Chalkidiki you have a large choice of different accommodations. Whether you are looking for a basic guesthouse, a camping site, an apartment or a five-star hotel: you can find it all in Chalkidiki. However, we do recommend that you reserve your accommodation if you want to visit Chalkidiki in the summer.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
