With respect to the National Road's winding character, transfer durations from and to the airports must not be underestimated.

A list of airlines and charter companies is shown here.

For the transfer from the airport to Melidoni as well as for the drive back, the best solution is to hire a car which then will also be available when you go shopping, and mainly for trips to West Crete's beautiful sandy beaches and sights.
According to our guests' experience, the car rental agency Eurocars Crete is to be recommended not only for their reliable service but also because of the intensive customer care per e-mail during the reservation process.
