We are getting ready for our trip to Crete in about 6 weeks. We’ll be driving a rental car much of the time, but due to flight connections we’ll be flying into Heraklion and then taking a bus to Chania a few days later where we will pick up our rental car.
My question relates to the K-Tel buses running from Heraklion to Chania. It looks like they run every hour from the Central Bus station located near the port, cost about 15 euro and take about 3 hours. Does anyone know if it is necessary to reserve the bus tickets a day or so in advance, or is it typically ok to show up and buy the ticket 30 min or so before departure? In case it matters, we plan to make the trip on Saturday May 6. Not sure if Saturdays might be one of the busier days of the week.
Thanks for the insights!
