Hiring a car in Leros is a good idea, as it will help you to explore the island easier. Leros Airport is located in Partheni, 9 km north of the Island center, Platanos. For that reason, walking is not an option and transportation by car would be needed. Please note that there are no car hire rental kiosks located inside the airport of Leros. Therefore, we advise you to pre-book your car from the car hire companies located in Platanos and around.
Taking a taxi is also a possibility. Just outside the airport, there is an organized taxi rank with local taxi drivers. During the summer months, they are always there waiting to serve you. They also know most secrets of Leros, something that you can always take advantage of! It is always a good idea to ask for the ride cost beforehand, to avoid any surprises at the end. A taxi ride from Leros airport to Platanos should take you around 10-15 minutes by car.
