Car Hire FAQs
Frequently asked questions about our car hire for your Peligoni holiday.
DO I NEED TO BOOK A CAR OR A TAXI?
We strongly recommend that you hire a car, especially if you have smaller children as there is no protection from the sun and during the summer the Peligoni hill can be quite uncomfortable to walk. Please note that although we do offer a driver service, this should not be looked at as an alternative to hiring a car. At busy times of the day and night, there might be a long wait until a driver is available.
HOW DO I BOOK A CAR AND PICK IT UP?
Using our online Guest Hub, just fill in the form and we will confirm the car for you. You can either pick up the car from the airport or for a small charge, we can have the car delivered to the club for you.
HOW CAN I GET HOME IF I HAVE HAD A LONG LUNCH/NIGHT AND ON PARTY NIGHTS?
We offer a complimentary driver service between 7am – 11am and 4pm – 12am. To provide freedom from driving and the flexibility to enjoy your holiday as you wish. After hours lifts are available from 12am – 1am or 2am on party nights however, there is a charge of 25€ (35€ after 2am) per villa drop off in this period.
DO I NEED TO HIRE A CAR IF I CAN USE THE DRIVER SERVICE?
We’re afraid the driver service is not to be relied on as an alternative to car hire.

Frequently asked questions about our weekly Membership
DO I HAVE TO GET MEMBERSHIP TO USE THE CLUB?
Yes, each person in the booking needs to get membership to the club. Watersports, paddlesports and motorised watersports are optional and at an additional cost. Please note that memberships are only offered to guests that have booked a Peligoni holiday via our London office. We limit the number of memberships that are sold for any given week and these must be purchased in advance.
WHAT DOES MEMBERSHIP INCLUDE?
Your membership includes entry to the club and the use of all the land-based facilities. These facilities include (but are not limited to) use of the tennis court, sunbeds, the pool, towels, group yoga and fitness lessons, bike rides, children’s activities with Sharky & George, our concierge and our driver service at allocated times and some events. Various additional services such as the spa, food and drink, tennis lessons, some motorised watersports* and excursions are an additional cost.

HOW DO THE WATERSPORTS PACKAGES WORK?
At the time of booking you will be asked if you want to get a sailing or paddlesport upgrade on top of your membership. A paddlesport upgrade allows you to use all the kayaks and paddleboards. The full watersports upgrade allows you to use the kayaks, paddleboards, windsurf boards and sailing boats all week. These packages also include all instruction and safety equipment. These packages can only be purchased on a weekly basis. Daily packages are not available at any time. You can also purchase a motorised watersports membership upgrade known as The Ski Pass. This allows you to spend as much time on the water as possible, for as little as possible.
CAN I UPGRADE WHEN I GET TO THE CLUB?

CAN I HAVE A BALLPARK FIGURE OF WHAT THIS HOLIDAY MIGHT COST ME?
You can, however this is dependent on many factors both prior and during your holiday. Every accommodation page has an individual quote calculator which combines the cost of the accommodation, dates of stay, and adult memberships based of the size of your party. This will alter depending on the ages of your guests and we advise speaking to a member of our team about when you’d like to come and what you are looking for. They will send detailed quotes to you.
