Should I rent a car in Santorini?
I’m heading to Santorini for a little solo travel over the summer. I’m trying to keep everything cheap, so I was hoping to skip the car rental and just use public transportation. Is that a good way to get around the island? Or should I rent a car in Santorini?

- Most cars have standard (manual) transmissions: If you don’t know how to drive a stick shift, be sure to indicate that you need an automatic transmission when you reserve your car.
- You’ll need a valid U.S. license: U.S. and U.K. drivers do not need an international driver’s permit to drive in Greece.
- Reserve your car in advance: Especially if you’ll be traveling during the high season or need to ensure you have an automatic, you should reserve your vehicle in advance.
