As it is an island, smaller vehicles such as sedans, compacts, and hatchbacks are all ideal choices for rental car drivers. This is the case because many of the island’s roads are fairly narrow since the roads go back to long before automobiles had even been invented. Additionally, parking spaces on the island are often small and it may be harder to fit in them with a large vehicle.
Drivers will find that the speed limit starts out at 50 km/h (31 mph) in residential areas and built-up areas. Outside of built-up areas, the speed limit can get all the way up to 90 km/h (56 mph), particularly on larger roads. Additionally, visitors should note there are no highways on Greek islands.
The average price per liter of gas in Kos is around €1.67 ($1.91), which is roughly €6.32 ($7.23) per gallon. This is fairly expensive even for Europe, but the positive side is that distances are quite small on the island so your gas expenditures will still be low.
On-street parking is by far the most common option throughout the island, whether you are in residential areas or in the town proper. There are a few private parking lots in Kos, but for the most part on-street parking will suffice. Aside from these two options, many businesses also offer parking to guests and clients so drivers can count on that.
