Scooter, ATV or car, what is the best means of transport to meet the Greek Islands?September 11, 2017
The Greek Islands is the dream destination of many people around the world, because besides the spectacular natural landscapes has a lot of ancient history, about Gods, mythology among other attractions, but what is the best means of transport to make the most of Islands? Scooter, ATV or car?
First important information is the scooter can only be rented by people who have specific driver's license for motorcycle, there they are very restricted for rent for people who do not have that kind of qualification, something that is allowed and within the law in other countries like Spain and Italy, because those who have a car to driver's license is also entitled to drive Scooter up to 125cc.
But the ATV can be rented even only having the car driver's license.
To the car, the Brazilian driver's license goes for rent within a period of 90 day trip, if you are in Europe more than that you may have more difficulty, in this case it would be necessary to international driver's license we did before we left the Brazil in 2015, see how to do here, but nowadays already we change the portfolio of Brazilian driver for the Spanish , but we made it because we live here and this exchange is required to drive in Spain after 90 days in the country.
Now that we have written this information, let's do a little evaluation to demonstrate which we find the best transportation for rent.
In our opinion the best transportation for rent in the Greek Islands is the ATV, as well as scooter / bike could go to any part of the Island, the car has seats that would be much more difficult to find a parking space or parking that are rare, so the car is at a disadvantage in this regard.
Another point that favors the ATV and scooter in relation to the car is the cost of fuel for those two spend very little compare to the car's fuel consumption.
The rental price per day of the three transport is very similar, of 25 a 40 Euro per day, more day rental car starts to get cheaper, but it has the highest cost of fuel.
Some of the Islands, such as Crete, There are dirt roads with loose stones, it is not very good for those on scooter as this may be more difficult to drive, Now the ATV or the car you no longer have this problem.
One of the few advantages of the car is that in large islands such as Crete, you have to drive more than 45 minutes (50Km) to go to a beach, with the ATV or the 125cc scooter path would be very time consuming and more dangerous. This Island was the only place of 5 Greek islands we visited we rented a car, in all other rented the ATV. So if you see that will walk more than 50km to go to one beach or some other specific place, maybe the car is the best option for you.
For all these reasons we have the belief that ATV, no doubt, It was the best option to visit the beautiful Greek beaches and tourist attractions of each island
