A Guide to Car Rental on the Greek Island of Kos 

Book a rental car for collection at the Airport or if your prefer from other locations throughout the Island.  If you have never driven in Greece before, remember that you drive on the right and speed limits are in KPH. Kos is part of the Greek Dodecanese Islands and is a popular holiday retreat with Europeans. This small island is located not far away from the Turkish coast and sits in the Aegean Sea surrounded by beautiful blue waters.

Many people use the island as a hopping off point to the resort of Bodrum, sometimes staying overnight to enjoy the nightlife. Whatever you want to do there, you’ll find a hire car will make doing it a lot easier.  We have put together here some useful information regarding driving on Kos:

Traffic:

Traffic on the island can vary depending on the time of year. During the summer months, especially in July and August, there may be heavier traffic in popular tourist areas and around the main town, Kos Town. Traffic is generally less congested during the off-peak season.

Road Signs:

Road signs in Kos are typically clear and follow European conventions. Most signs include both Greek and Latin characters, making navigation easier for international visitors.

Local Driving Habits:

In Kos, driving is on the right-hand side of the road. Overtaking on the right is illegal. Be aware of local driving habits and adhere to road rules.

Fuel and Services:

Gas stations are readily available in towns and along major roads. However, in more remote areas, they may be less frequent. Make sure you have enough fuel for your journeys.

Island Exploration:

Kos is known for its historic sites, beautiful beaches, and scenic landscapes. Consider exploring the island's interior and coastal areas to discover charming villages, archaeological sites, and natural wonders.

Rural and Coastal Roads:

Some of Kos's most beautiful sites are accessible via narrower coastal or rural roads. Drive carefully, especially on winding roads, and be prepared for steep passages and potentially narrow streets in some villages.
