If you want to experience Thassos in the right way you need to have a car for at least two days. It would be ideal if everybody came in their own car but also coming by bus has its own advantages, especially if the bus is new and comfortable.
This year bus to Thassos costs 80e per person if you buy the ticket through some travel agency, which is a bit expensive. If you don’t travel alone it is more affordable to come with the car.
On the island, there are a lot of rent-a-car agencies. The prices are different and they depend on the demand.
Agency Speedy in Limenaria is a bit more affordable than the others. When renting a car it is important to have insurance. The cars in the agency Speedy do not have ensured tires. The extra charge is 1e per day and it is not obligatory. Most of the other agencies have cars with ensured tires.
There are also some agencies that have just the basic insurance that doesn’t cover the damage in case you cause the accident. You have to be very careful when you rent the car and you have to try to get the confirmation that the car is insured in total because some times the employees in the offices try to avoid that question and tend to tell you all the information after the accident happens.
If you take the car for one day then you have a limitation of 100km per day. The road around the island has about 93km so you will not exceed more kilometers than it is allowed and if you do the extra charge is not too high.
The price of the fuel is a bit more expensive on the island compare to the mainland.
International driving license is not necessary. You need only a green card for Macedonia.
