Car hire in Greece

Book cheap car hire in Greece here with CompareCarhire.co.uk. A hire car is most definitely the best way to get around each of the 150 jewels of this Mediterranean nation. The bedrock of philosophy and the cradle of history, literature, sports and culture, Greece is also famous for its pristine beaches and fun nightlife. Greeks know how to party, and a pub crawl around any of the nation's holiday resorts proves this undoubtedly.

Major airports and ports

Athens, Mykonos and Santorini international airports, plus 12 other international hubs, receive more than 17 million visitors per year. There are 25 domestic or regional airports in the country, such as Ikaria, Ioannina and Kalamata, which service domestic travellers. Many ferries to the Greek islands go from Piraeus Port in southwest Athens. It is the country's largest and busiest port, managing a huge amount of passenger and vehicle ferry services as well as cruise ships. Rafina and Lavrion ports serve the northeast and southeast Greek coasts respectively.

Transport

Car rental in Greece is offered by international and local agencies such as Greeka, Budget and Europcar. Bus and ferry schedules do not always complement each other for smooth passenger transfer, so this is the recommended form of transport. The modern and complex metro service is efficient but still an ongoing project. You can locate Greece car hire depots in many of the country's towns and cities.

Driving tips

EU and International driving licences are recognised in Greece. The minimum age for drivers is 18, and road signs are displayed in English as well as Greek. Traffic laws are the same as those in continental Europe; however, drivers should always use caution and patience when dealing with local motorists. Compare car hire on this site to find the best deals on the market.

Places to visit

Antipaxoi Voutimi is a great beach to drive to for those seeking sun, sand sea and sailing. Athens offers thousands of cafés and tavernas catering to every traveller's taste and style. Ios, Mykonos and Santorini transform into party islands over the holidays, while the meaning of life may be discovered between the columns at Parthenon.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by CompareCarHire.co.uk? at this location
