I should like to visit many places in the island in the beginning of August. Can You advise me a little on possibility of rental bike, motobike or car?
Never seen any bike hire; the island is pretty hilly anyway. There is a car and scooter hire company at the end of the ferry pier
We hired a bike last year from Coralli just up from where the ferry docks. They were great. It is best to book ahead as they were pretty busy. You will need your own transport to do this wonderful island justice. Enjoy ...
Just returned from Serifos and used Bluebird car rental, on the road that runs parallel behind the port. Very reasonables prices and a friendly owner. You can pre-book via their website. Have fun driving - beautiful place!
I'd second the pre-booking advice. We were there last August and hadn't done so, only to find all the places were fully booked out. Fantastic island, by the way. Very much hope to return.
Can you rent a car with automatic transmission on Serifos?
There are four rental offices. Two of them only have cars so that leaves only two for scooters. The roads on the island island are in poor condition and there are many dirt roads too so small motorcycles would be very useful but unfortunately there aren't any. There are only few scooters and they are in terrible condition. The staff in all the offices are friendly but quite indifferent towards any problems you may have with the scooters.
It's a shame you seem to have had a bad experience with bike hire on Serifos. We found the roads surprisingly good. And also they were pretty empty of traffic. There is basically only the Hora and the Port that are of any size on the island so get away from these and there is basically ome simple road that goes around the island near all the beaches with no traffic.
