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).

Frequently asked questions
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.
