Hi, everybody !
We are torn between renting a car and taking public transport after taking in all the valuable advices here. Renting a car probably will allow us more convenience to see different parts of the islands but it seems expensive (we have enquired about some car renting companies on the web and it takes around 40 euro a day). On the other hand, public buses seem running on an irregular basis. We would like to know the average daily rate of hiring a car and if the rate also includes fuel and insurance. Will anyone recommend any car hiring company on Santorini and Mykonos ? Will the fuel be sufficient to last for a day of exploration on the 2 islands ? If not, do we have to pay for a refill ? In case that happens, how much will the fuel cost ? By the way, we also wonder if we can rent the cars just for 1.5 days on the islands respectively. For buses, do they run irregularly ? Can they reach all the attractions (e.g. churches, monasteries, scenic spots, shopping and catering areas) on the islands ? How much is the fare roughly speaking ? Thanks for anybody's help !
