Location information for Santorini

Introduction

Santorini is not just one island, but it is an archipelago of volcanic islands, created after a massive volcano eruption about 3600 years ago. The largest island Thira and the smaller island Thirasia together, make up the rim of the crater of the volcano. In between these islands you will notice lower islands where the smoke still indicates that there is volcanic activity. The towns on Thira and Thirasia are mostly located on the crater rim, high above the sea. The sunsets in Santorini are legendary, some say they are the most beautiful in the world.
In the south you can see the ruins of Akrotiri, a city from the Minoan period, which was buried under lava. Old-Thira is the former capital of the island (founded in the 9th century BC.). You will not only be able to see the ruins, but - at almost 400 meters above sea level - you will have a spectacular view of the surroundings.

Population

On the islands live over 7,000 people.

Location

Santorini is located in the Aegean Sea. Thira is the southernmost island of the Cyclades island group and is located 110 kilometers north of Crete. The capital on the island of Thira is called Fira but is also referred to as Thira city. It is situated in a picturesque location high above sea level and its houses have bright blue roofs.

Economy

Tourism is Santorini's main source of income. Furthermore, the island produces wine and – on a modest scale – vegetables (cherry tomatoes, eggplants and katsoúni, a kind of cucumber).

Airports

The airport is located six kilometers southwest of the capital Fira. Santorini National Airport is easily accessible by rental car.

Public Transport

There is good public transport on the main island of Thira. From the main bus station in Fira buses depart regularly (every thirty or sixty minutes) to different locations on the island. There are also smaller buses that do not stop at bus stops, but you can just stop them by waving your hand. Between the main coastal towns there are ferry connections.

Traffic and Parking

You can explore Santorini excellently by rental car. Keep in mind that the roads on the crater rim are steep and curvy. Like anywhere in Greece, you can encounter herds of sheep or goats. You should also be aware of cars that are parked in unexpected places.

Hotels

There is a wide range of accommodations on Santorini. Even though the main island Thira is very small, there is a difference between the west side (the crater rim) and the east side (the lower part) Hotel prices are higher on the west side than on the east side. Furthermore the east side (with better beaches) is more suitable for families with children. If you would like to visit Santorini in summer, we recommend you to book your hotel room well in advance. In winter this usually isn't necessary. Although many hotels are closed during that time, there are still plenty of options left.

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). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
