Good to know before renting a car in Karpathos:

The prices of the car rent are higher, than in other Greek islands. Renting a car in Crete or in Rhodes are cheaper.

The smallest car category is ideal for parking, but driving the smallest and weakest cars in the mountains, through winding and steep roads are not the best option. If you can, choose a more powerful car!

The asphalted roads of Karpthos are usually in good condition, but most of the roads are narrow and winding. Don't drive in Karpathos without a mountain driving experience. If you are unsure of your driving skills, just catch a boat in the ports of Karpathos and enjoy the boat excursions, or discover the island with the local bus transport.

Never park and leave your car in narrow bends, which may obstruct the traffic of other vehicles.
