Top tips for renting a car in Lesbos

  • Mytilene International Airport (MJT) is the main airport serving the island of Lesbos in Greece. Major car rental companies typically have their counters in a designated section within the airport's main terminal, making it convenient for passengers to arrange for their rental cars upon arrival. You can look for signs directing you to the car rental counters. Still, agencies such as Budget, Alamo, Europcar, and Thrifty offer pickup and shuttle services to and from the airport.
  • Lesbos doesn't experience intense rush hour traffic like big cities. However, there are times when traffic may be slightly busier, especially in and around the capital city of Mytilene and popular tourist areas, making driving a challenge. Usually, roads are congested from around 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and between 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Also, during the peak tourist season, which is usually in the summer months, popular tourist destinations and coastal areas might experience increased traffic.
  • When driving in Lesbos, compact or midsize cars are often suitable for most travelers. Still, if you have a larger group or need extra space, you might opt for a larger vehicle like a minivan or SUV, as they have ample space for passengers and luggage. Some rural roads in Lesbos can be narrow or winding. If you plan to explore less-traveled areas, a car with good handling and maneuverability can be beneficial.
  • Children up to 4 feet 5 inches tall must use appropriate child restraints while traveling in a vehicle. The child restraint system can be a child safety seat or booster seat, depending on the child's age, weight, and height. The specific type of child restraint system required depends on the age and weight of the child. For instance, infants and toddlers weighing up to 29 pounds must use rear-facing child safety seats. Children weighing approximately 20 to 40 pounds should use forward-facing child safety seats, and those weighing about 33 to 79 pounds should use booster seats.

Usually, those under 25 may be subject to a young driver surcharge, an additional fee added to the rental cost. Most importantly, you must have a valid driver's license from your home country or an International Driving Permit (IDP) if your driver's license is not in English or the Greek alphabet.
