Mini Guide for Kos

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.

If you've never driven in Greece before, remember that you drive on the right and speed limits are in KPH.
