The Greek island of Kos sits within the Dodecanese complex in the southeastern Aegean Sea. It's the third largest island of the complex, just after Rhodes and Karpathos. With miles of beautiful sandy beaches and a host of historic Greek and Roman monuments, including the Asclepeion, Neratzia Castle, and Casa Romana villa, it’s an ideal holiday location for those who want to combine relaxing in the sun with spectacular sightseeing adventures. Enterprise Rent-A-Car has a branch conveniently located in lively Kos Town, situated closely to many of the island’s resorts and hotels, and it's within a short 30-minute drive from the airport. With fairly quiet roads, limited public transport, and attractions spread out in different areas, it makes perfect sense to explore Kos by car. If you want to discover hidden beaches, gorgeous countrysides, and ancient ruins scattered across the island, visit the local Enterprise branch there and explore the city in a quality rental car.
Enterprise has many great modern and reliable vehicles for touring Kos, with all the features one would expect, such as air conditioning. For visiting the Asclepeion or driving to the seaside town of Kefalos, hiring a car makes exploring far easier and more comfortable. Most vehicles are compact class cars, as these are the easiest to navigate through some of the smaller island roads, and they're also very fuel-efficient. They can accommodate up to five passengers and two large pieces of luggage, so they can easily fit a couple or small family. Enterprise also offers child safety seats, but you should enquire in advance to ensure availability.

Whether visiting Kos for cultural sightseeing, sun-soaked beaches, relaxed explorations, or more adventurous hiking or watersports, this stunning island has so much to offer. With a car rental in Kos, you can discover all the island’s best beaches, from the long expanse of Kefalos in the south to the exotic white sands of Mastichari, as well as the popular beaches of Marmari, Lambi, and Kardamena, and not to mention the small coves of Thermes and Psalidi. The Asclepeion is situated on top of a hill, approximately two miles from Kos Town and it's easily accessible by car.
Driving on Kos roads is generally easy. There is one main road that connects the north and south ends of the island, with other smaller roads thay shoot off from this main thoroughfare. Overtaking is fairly common and drivers can simply move over to the right to allow others to pass. Parking is available at or near most of the beaches. The streets in Kos Town are quite narrow and parking is not allowed near the harbour. When entering Kos Town from the south, there is a large car park available on the right, which is very convenient for those visiting attractions in Kos Town.
