Amount of the deposit at the car hire in Kos

Generally, when hiring a car in Kos, a deposit is also required by each car hire company, but the amount depends primarily on the type of vehicle, not the currency. Provided that you return your hired car without any damage, this will be debited from your credit card beforehand and, of course, credited again.

Include additional driver for the hired car

Straße auf Kos

Exploring Kos

Constantly sitting alone behind the wheel can be very exhausting, especially abroad. Should you wish to include an additional driver for the hired car with the car hire company, then a small additional fee is usually required, which in most cases is billed per day. However, since offers are also available that already include an additional driver, an online comparison is worthwhile in advance. By specifying an additional driver, all concluded insurances are automatically transferred for a small extra charge per day, but you can take turns driving without any problems.

When is a trip to Kos worthwhile?

Strand in Kos

Beautiful Kos

The Mediterranean climate of the island off the Turkish coast, with its long summers and mild winters, has something to offer almost every season. Nature-loving travelers particularly appreciate the splendor of the flowers in spring, while sun-seeking travelers get their money's worth in the summer months. On the other hand, those who don't like it quite so hot and would like to soak up a few warming rays of sun before winter will feel very much at home on Kos in autumn.

What does Kos have to offer?

Kos is about thirty times smaller than the island of Crete, but it is still the third largest of all the Dodecanese islands in Greece. It is located only about 3.5 km from Bodrum in Turkey, making it an ideal place to spend a varied holiday. From there, you can even see as far as Asia as you look across the strait. Kos is narrow, but very long. Therefore, all the highlights and sights are located near the coast. The beaches of the island are also gorgeous. In total, the beach on Kos is about 20 km long. As on all other Greek islands, temperatures on Kos are around 40°C. So you can spend wonderful days at the beach or pool. Between May and October it hardly rains on the island. Only a light wind brings cooling. Moreover, Kos scores with a lot of nature, so you can really spend a wonderful holiday here.
