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.

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.
