Car Travel

You will want to rent a car if you are staying in a private villa, but if you are staying in a hotel on the beach, you can usually get by with taxis, though getting a taxi every day can be expensive. If you are a family or group of four, then a car can be a more cost-effective solution since taxi rates are per person.

Car Rentals

Major car-rental companies, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz have locations at the airport; Avis and Budget also have branch offices. Local rental companies include Dependable Car Rental and Discount Car Rental.
