Mini Guide Santorini Airport
Many people take the ferry from Athens
but, at over five hours, it can be a trial. Much better is to fly into Santorini Airport from an extensive number of European airports. Budget carrier easyJet fly from Gatwick to Santorini and there are many seasonal charters from the UK
. The airport is around three miles from the main town. First time renters can use our Greece guide
before you travel to learn the rules of the road and hit the ground running!
If you have pre-booked a hire car, the desks are easy to find in the arrival’s hall. Most companies supply you with a map so finding your way to your accommodation should be simple.
Santorini is one of the most famous islands in history having been blown apart by the eruption of the volcano Thira in antiquity. Today it is a picture-perfect holiday destination thoroughly deserving of exploration. Hire a car and visit the tiny villages perched on the ridge.
