Mini Guide for Zante

The Greek island of Zante (or Zakynthos) has something for everyone with great beaches, beautiful weather and busy towns. Because of all these qualities and more, the island of Zante has a buzzing tourist industry.

You can arrive at Zante by collecting your Rhino rental car on the Greek mainland, or one of the other islands, and taking it there on the ferry.  The island’s main road is known as the Greece national road 35 which goes to Porto Roma and Volimes. You may well want to choose to rent a 4x4 vehicle in Zante as some of the island’s best sights are off road. Book one well ahead of time to be sure of having your request met.

Zante also has its own airport. Mainly the flights arrive from Athens  but during the popular summer months there are charter flights from several European destinations.
