Who Is Kalyves Travel Car Hire And What Kind Of Services Do They Offer?


Kalives Travel is a car hire business based in the village of Kalyves, and they give car hire services at the Chania airport and even Heraklion Airport. They will also deliver the car at your hotel/apartment or at the port. You just need to inform them where you want the car delivered. Kalives Travel is a family business and it prides itself on having over 23 years of experience. And by being in business for that long, Kalyves Travel has established itself as one of the leading rental car companies in Crete.

It has earned the trust and confidence of many travelers and residents of this beautiful island. Their flexibility and willingness to help sets them apart from other car rental companies in Crete and that is why many people keep coming back to them because of their excellent, efficient and professional service.

But Does Kalives Travel Only Serve Tourists?

No Kalives Travel caters to the needs of anyone who needs a car hire service. If for whatever reason you need a car, they will hook you up. I remember a time when we needed a car because our car had problems and when we took it to the garage, the mechanic said that he will need at least three days to fix it.

We rang Kalives travel and explained our situation and they told us not to worry and to just wait at the garage and they will bring us a car. They even went further to tell us that when our car is ready for collection, we should just leave the rental car at the garage and they will come and pick it up. That’s just the kind of business they are, super helpful.

Another incident that I recall is when some friends were visiting us and they had two small children with them, they needed a car and they also needed car seats for the little ones. They thought that they will have to pay extra for the baby seats but they did not. The car seats were included free of charge.

OK, All That Is Good But What Kinds Of Cars Do Kalives Travel Provide?


I am glad you asked. Their Fleet of cars ranges from Family cars, minibusses, luxury cars, automatic and manual, Petrol and diesel. Click here to see the cars

All the cars come with a map of Crete, 24-hour road support, unlimited mileage. Free baby seats and boosters, free cancellation and many more. You will be able to find all the information about their rental terms and conditions on their official website.

Because Kalives Travel does not want you to get in trouble with the law, they have included a lot of helpful information, about things you need to keep in mind when you are driving in Crete. They have talked about things like illegal parking and the consequences of the same.

The fines of illegal parking are very high and the Police will make sure you have paid the fines before you leave the island so be very careful.

Other things you need to consider are the speed limit and of course, observe the traffic rules. Remember the roads are narrow especially when you are going through the villages so drive slowly. Let the locals overtake you, they are used to driving on these roads and they are familiar with the bends and the narrow roads. Please read my post about safety when driving in Crete Here.


As you can see Kalives Travel is the place you need to be if you need/want a stress free hire car experience in Crete. I understand that a review should include the pros and cons list. But To be honest, based on our friends and family that we have taken to Kalives Travel to hire a car, I can not find any negative thing to say.

I only have good things to say, and all our friends and family that I spoke to before writing this review say they had a pleasant experience. And that is why I did not include a pros and cons list.

Anyway, I hope you have found the information I have shared in this review helpful, if so, then please put a smile on my face by sharing this post on your social media so I can get more readers and my blog can grow 🙂
