Frequently Asked Questions

Summers in Crete are hot and dry, so this is the perfect time to visit if you’re looking to sunbathe, swim, or sightsee. For balmy weather without the crowds, you’ll want to fly over in the late spring (April–May) or early autumn (September–October). Hotels and flights tend to be cheaper then too!
Stunning beaches, gorgeous weather, and lashings of history – Crete is an amazing place for a holiday.
Crete has two international airports: Heraklion (HER) and Chania (CHQ). You can fly direct to both of these from a handful of cities across the UK.
Crete has a great public bus network that connects nearly all major towns and cities in the north. But if you’re looking to venture off the beaten path, or head down south, renting a car is the easiest way to do it. Some of the smaller villages and beaches along the southern coast can be quite tricky to reach without your own wheels.
