Would like to rent a car at Thira Airport and return to same location. Is it okay to ferry the vehicle to other islands?
To view the CROSS BORDER or FERRY terms and conditions. At STEP2 of our 3 step online booking process, alongside the car photo of your choice, there is a link entitled “IMPORTANT INFORMATION”. Clicking on this link will open an additional smaller window, with the terms and conditions appertaining to that particular car/supplier. Choose then the CAR tab and look under TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS Try a few different suppliers as each supplier/vehicle type may have a different cross border rule.
So “cross border” could mean different Greek islands?
For example Europcar say this about ¨Travelling with the Ferry¨.
