Car Hire  Zakynthos Airport Useful Information

Hire cars are available at the airport but as vehicles are limited and passenger numbers high you would be advised to pre-book. The car rental desks are easily spotted at the back of the arrivals hall.  Zakynthos Airport (also known as Zante Airport) is one and the same airport.  Zante is the commonly used Italian spelling of the island’s name. The island is most famous for being the nesting ground of the endangered loggerhead turtles and tourism there, especially on the south of the island where the turtles nest, has to take second place to the needs of the turtles. As a whole, the island makes a great holiday spot with its plentiful rain making the island green and verdant.
