SIXT Car Rental Services at Chania Airport

Chania is also known as Hania, or Khania, and the city's airport is commonly referred to as the Ioannis Daskalogiannis Airport, after a famous Cretan rebel in the 18th century. A rented car is the best form of transport on the island, and Sixt Car Hire offers their services from Chania Airport. Sixt features many unique car rental services, and a wide range of vehicles for hire.

Sixt is just one of a number of car hire companies at Chania Airport.

The rental desk of Sixt at Chania Airport, is open daily from 07:00 to 22:00, and can be found in the arrivals hall of the single terminal building. Chania Airport is not very large, only handling around three million passengers per year, therefore its facilities are easy to navigate. However, during the summer months of Greece, the terminal can be very busy, and it is wise to reserve your rented car in advance at this time. An advanced reservation will ensure that Sixt has the car that you need, ready and waiting for your arrival. This is especially recommended if you require a special size or type of vehicle, and if you will need additional items of equipment, such as a baby seat or satellite navigation system. Rented cars, along with all other accessories needed, can be arranged using the form above.

Equipment for your vehicle, such as luggage racks, GPS units or baby seats will cost a few extra Euro per day of rental, but are vital in ensuring the ease and safety of your journey. All young children are required by law in Greece to sit at the back of the vehicle, and to be safely secured for the drive. Since that Sixt cannot guarantee the availability of the items you need without a reservation, booking early is essential. The additional items for hire can be viewed on Sixt's website. For disabled drivers, Sixt may also offer the use of hand controls. Hand controls are usually offered free of charge, and operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. The device may also come fitted with a steering wheel knob for better control of the vehicle. At Chania Airport, hand controls will need to be booked as early as possible, or at least 48 hours in advance of your arrival at the airport, as a specific type of automatic vehicle is needed.

From Sixt Chania Airport one-way hires are a good choice for customers who will need to return their rented car to another Sixt location. Perhaps because they will be leaving from another airport, or will only need a car for a few days, but will not be leaving the island just yet. One-way rentals can be collected from Chania Airport, but then returned to a different Sixt location in another town or city. There may be charges for a one-way hire which is returned to a further location, but it is often free of charge if the vehicle is returned within the same city as it was collected. Customers can make enquiries from Sixt about their one-way rental services, and if this is possible at their Chania Airport rental location.

Customers at Sixt have a very good selection of vehicles from which to choose. There are smaller cars similar to the Chevrolet Matiz, Peugeot 107, Nissan Micra and Opel Corsa, as well as larger vehicles, which are able to accommodate a greater number of passengers. Larger vans are an ideal option for groups of travelers who would rather hire one vehicle instead of two or three. Up to seven people are ideal for the Peugeot 807, while the Nissan Primaster and Peugeot Xpert have room for up to nine passengers. They are both manually driven vehicles, with air conditioning and a minimum age requirement of 25. For these vehicles, the drivers license must have been held for at least three years in the renter's country of residence prior to the rental date.

Vehicles seating five, and which make suitable choices for averaged sized families, are the Peugeot 307 STW and Peugeot 407 STW, which are both estate vehicles with some room for luggage items. They have a manual (stick shift) transmission as well, and the same age and drivers license requirements as the larger van-type vehicles. Customers who prefer an automatic vehicle can hire a car similar to the Peugeot 307, and corporate clients in need of a more elegant vehicle can drive the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or BMW 523, which can have a manual or automatic transmission. All smaller vehicles from Sixt can be driven by persons 21 years of age or older, with a driver's license that has been held for at least one year before the rental date.

Customers who are fond of renting their vehicles from Sixt can apply for the Sixt Express Card, and enjoy a range of exclusive benefits and services. With the Sixt Express Card, customers are even able to bypass the rental counters if they have an existing reservation, by using the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals to create their own rental contract and to select their vehicle. Express Card holders can also more easily hire a vehicle over the phone, from as little as four hours in advance, and will have access to their details and saved rental preferences online.

Further details regarding Sixt's unique car rental services can be found online, at, or customers can contact Sixt directly, at Chania Airport.
