Why book car hire with James?

Put yourself in the driving seat with our unbeatable car hire options. Forget trying to decipher public transport timetables or squeezing into crowded coaches - you're free to come and go as you please.

Whether you're holidaying in a villa that's tucked away from the hustle and bustle, or are staying right at the centre of a resort, our car options have got you covered.

Car Optional

Our car optional villas are more centrally located. There's plenty of amenities and facilities nearby, so hiring a car isn't a must. But to explore further afield, a hire car gives you all the freedom you'll need to discover the destination. From hideaway towns to secluded coves, you can pick any point on the map, hop in the car and go. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? No matter where you've chosen for your holiday, hiring a car opens up unlimited possibilities for adventure.

Car Advised

Near to our car advised villas you'll find a small selection of amenities. But you're on holiday – and variety is the spice of life! So we advise hiring a car for more choice when it comes to days out, dining out and ease of getting around. Hop in the car to find those hidden spots, far from the typical tourist trails. After all, it's not easy to get a taxi to the bucket list places that are off the beaten path! Those four wheels will blow your ideal itinerary wide open – so dream big and see the sights in style.

Car Essential

Car essential villas are found in the some of the most peaceful settings, hidden away from the world on hilltops, or blissfully positioned by beautiful bays. These villas enjoy truly being away from it all, so restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities are not usually walkable. There's no better feeling than getting away from it all, surrounded by luscious landscapes and serene countryside. So hiring a car means you can retreat to your villa for peace and quiet, with the option to reconnect with the outside world when it suits you.

Add a hire car when you book – it couldn't be easier!
