We try our best to make the pick-up and return of your vehicle as easy as possible whether you arrive at our office or need to be collected from your hotel and you can be sure of a punctual and personal service. Your clean and fully maintained vehicle will be waiting for you and returning your vehicle is also easy, we will even take you back to your hotel if needs be. 

At the pick-up please remember to have your documents, driving license and passport/ ID card with you. For those travelling with children we offer baby/child seats and boosters, please make sure that you tell us your needs at the time of booking.

We strongly recommend our customers to pre-book their vehicle at least 2-4 days before arrival especially during high season July/August when the availability can be very limited due to high demand.

When picking up your hire vehicle from Skala Prinos why not take the time to check out the second largest ferry port on the island. There are numerous tavernas and souvenir shops to explore and a couple of small supermarkets selling day to day groceries including fresh produce. Skala Prinos also offers two beautiful sandy beaches and to the south of the port there is a boat builders yard which still works in a traditional style. Following on there is also another long stretch of beach called Dasilio, here you can find a picnic area under the shade of tall pine trees and there are a few tavernas in close proximity. Scuba diving is also available in the area. It is worth noting that you may have to park a little way out to the south of the harbour as parking is premium nearer to the busy port. There is no bank in Skala Prinos but a cash machine can be found to the right of the ferry port close to the ticket offices.

From Skala Prinos you can also board a ferry, either as a foot passenger or with your vehicle which will take you to the mainland city of Kavala with its many places of interest to explore. The timetables for the ferries are updated on a weekly basis. Click here for latest timetables and information about Ferry boats to Thassos. It is always worthwhile checking to see if there are any last minute changes to the itineraries. Tickets cannot be purchased in advance or online. You must buy your tickets at the kiosks in the ports. Please also note (at present) tickets can only be paid for in cash, credit and debit cards are not accepted. Last but not least, please remember if you are using a car from Potos Car Rentals you will need our written (on the Rental Agreement) permission to travel with the car on any ferry boats. If possible please let us know in advance if you plan a trip to the mainland in our cars.

When leaving Skala Prinos whether you choose to travel north or south, there are petrol stations in easy access. In May, June and September the roads are generally not too busy in this area but in the height of the season, July and August, traffic can be heavy.

Once on the islands main road there are a few places which may be of interest to visit. Travelling north heading towards Limenas (Thassos Town) there is a large supermarket and then you will enter Skala Rachoni, it has a petrol station, small fishing harbour, pharmacy, tavernas, and a few hotels dotted along a lovely sandy beach with shallow water offering very safe bathing. There is also a tennis club and water sports available for the adventurous. 

Heading back to the islands main road past Skala Rachoni you will enter Pachis, Pachis has a wonderful sandy beach, complete with a few tavernas and a couple of hotels. There are water sports available or if you would prefer to relax there are sun beds and parasols offering a little welcome shade

Heading on towards Limenas (Thassos Town) your journey will provide you with wonderful sea views hidden coves, beaches and tavernas to explore.

Travelling south on the islands main road out of Skala Prinos heading towards Limenaria, you will find a petrol station and then Prinos. Prinos is a busy little village offering numerous village shops and it is here that you will find the islands medical centre, there is also a pharmacy and a couple of dentists. Every Monday a market is held on the village car park, please note parking on the main road is not allowed. Moreover parking close by can be difficult due to the narrow road and volume of traffic. Better park a few meters away from the entrance of the village and walk to the market. If you want to avoid crowds, it is also a good idea to get there as early as possible in the morning! The market starts around 08:00 am and the last sellers leave at 13:00-14:00 pm.

Behind Prinos you will find Kazaviti which is divided into Mikros and Megalos Kazaviti (also known as Mikros and Megalos Prinos), the villages consist of beautiful restored stone houses and are well worth a visit if you have the time. Higher above Kazaviti is the Monastery of Saint Panteleimon, the views as you travel to the Monastery are spectacular.
