Chania is the second largest city of Crete and the capital of the Chania regional unit. It lies along the north coast of the island, about 70 km (43 mi) west of Rethymno and 145 km (90 mi) west of Heraklion.

AUTOFUN, with over 30 years of experience in car rental services in this area, we recommend you rent a car in Chania if you are interested in site-seeing or if you want to discover Crete in all its beauty.


In the summer season (from April to early November) there are many direct charter flights to Chania from the UK, Germany, Scandinavia and other European countries.

The CHQ Airport is only 13 kms away from the city centre of Chania. It is one of the two main international Airports on the Cretan Island, alongside the Heraklion Airport.

Chania is linked with all cities of the Crete Island (Heraklion, Kissamos, Falassarna, Kampos or Rethymno) and it is an ideal place to collect your rental. You tell us when arrive and we will provide the car you want to rent at the Chania Airport.



The old town is centred around the harbour, a maze of alleys and houses that stood for hundreds of years, were rebuilt, ruined and rebuilt again with details from different epochs. Old Town is full of souvenir, art and crafts shops. The new quarters house the regular span of shops, where you can find most of your needs for hiking and other adventures. The beaches begin not far from Old Town, the nearest one being Nea Hora, a 1 km walk from the west end of Old Town.
