That being said, there are plenty of taxis available as well as other efficient ways of moving around the island such as coach tours, renting a car or quad bike and sea excursions.

Renting a car is one of the the best ways to explore the island of Zakynthos.

Zakynthos is quite large – if you decide to rent a car for the duration of your trip, you’ll have the ability to go wherever you want whenever you want.

Another great way to explore the island is by bicycle, scooter or Quad bike.
Scooters and quad bikes are much easier to maneuver on the narrow roads and you’ll also be able to explore more parts of the island which you wouldn’t be able to access by car. Finding parking is also significantly easier too.

Uber and Lyft don’t operate in Zante but thankfully, taxis are plentiful and are one of the most used forms of transportation on the island. Day tours and excursions are also offered by various taxi services.

Zakynthos offers a large variety of fun and interesting day trips and excursions.
