We are flying to Chania and staying for a week and are staying at Cretan Dream Royal Hotel in Kato Stalos. We want to have a car for 2-3 days for sure to drive around but won't necessarily want a car for the whole stay. We are wondering if we should book a car at airport to get to hotel and then return or just get a taxi from airport and then book the car later from the hotel or locally? If taxi is expensive then we would prefer to keep the car for the whole week of course.
Different websites mention that the airport is 23 km away and around 35 min drive. My questions for anyone who may be able to help:
1- Does anyone know how much the taxi from Chania airport to hotel will approximately cost?
2- Any other options beside taxi to get to the hotel (e.g. public transfers)?
3- What would you suggest? Car for the week or car for half of the week + one leg of transport to airport?
4- Any car rental company that you would recommend in that area or in Chania airport?
5- Any other suggestions?
Many thanks in advance for your help!
