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.

With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs. Can I rent a car at Heraklion Airport without a credit card? In general, you always need a credit card to rent a car from EasyTerra.

You pay a deposit when you pick up the car. You need a credit card in the name of the main driver to pay this deposit. The rental company will then put a temporary hold on your credit card for the amount of the deposit so they can recover the costs of any damage or other extra costs.

When you return the rental car, it will be checked for damage or other defects. If no damage is found, the amount of the temporary hold on your credit card will be released. You can read more about the deposit on this page: Car rental deposit

Location information for Heraklion Airport

Heraklion Airport in a nutshell

The airport of Heraklion on the island of Crete is officially called 'Nikos Kazantzakis', after a writer and philosopher. Annually, some 5 million people use this airport. The terminal building is fairly small, and as a result the airport is very busy during peak times. Often, people who are departing have to wait outside - sometimes for quite a while - because flights to and from this airport are often delayed. This is why work has begun on expanding the airport, but it will take years before this work will be finished. The airport is also used by the Greek airforce, which is why people are not allowed to take pictures.

The airport, which lies on the edge of Heraklion, is easy to reach by bus and car. There are no hotels at the airport.

There is a limited number of shops and places to eat and drink. There is one restaurants and there are five cafés, and prices are high. There are no offices or meeting rooms for rent at the airport, nor are there many other facilities. There is a bank and there are a few ATM's.

In the aviation industry Heraklion Airport is indicated with the abbreviations HER (IATA airport code) and LGIR (ICAO airport code).
