Tips for renting a car in Greece

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Greece including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 20 February 2024.
  • When renting a car in Greece and planning a drive to one of its neighbors, like Turkey, Albania, or North Macedonia, it's vital to notify the rental company ahead of time. While many prominent rental agencies permit cross-border trips, they often requiretravellerss to purchase additional insurance for these journeys. Also, a cross-border fee typically applies. It's worth noting that most Greek rental companies might not allow you to settle this fee online. Instead, you’ll have to handle it directly at their office upon collecting your vehicle. Be prepared for this process to ensure a smooth transition between countries.
  • While renting a car in Greece and traveling with young children, it's important to ensure their safety on the road. Greek law mandates that children between the ages of 3 and 11 must use an appropriate car seat or booster. Many reputable car rental agencies in Greece offer child safety seats as an add-on, but we recommend confirming availability and the type when booking. If you're particular about a specific brand or model, consider bringing one from home. Prioritizing this aspect of your trip will ensure that your family enjoys Greece without compromising on safety.
  • In Greece, driving becomes an experience unto itself, woven through the rich tapestry of the country's landscapes and cities. As in many parts of Europe, when driving in Greece you'll be navigating on the right-hand side of the road. Navigating roundabouts, a common feature, requires giving way to those already making their journey inside the circle. Amidst the ancient backdrop, modern sensibilities reign. Greece's commitment to road safety is evident in its stringent blood alcohol limits and its prohibition against mobile phone usage without a hands-free setup.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Greece, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 20 February 2024.

Should I rent a car in Greece?

Yes, renting a car in Greece is highly recommended. While cities like Athens and Thessaloniki have efficient public transportation, much of Greece's beauty lies outside these urban centers. A rented car offers you the convenience of visiting smaller villages, exploring lesser-known archaeological sites, and accessing remote beaches with ease. On the islands, public transport can be limited, making a car essential for thorough exploration. With a car, you also have the flexibility to set your own schedule, avoid waiting times, and cover more ground effectively. It's a practical choice if you want to make the most of your trip to Greece.

What is driving like in Greece?

Driving in Greece presents an opportunity to experience the nation's varied landscapes, from coastal roads to historic city streets. The country's road infrastructure is commendable, with roads being generally well-maintained and signposts clear, often provided in both Greek and English. In bustling cities like Athens and Thessaloniki, it's not uncommon to encounter traffic congestion during peak hours, requiring some patience while driving. Beyond the cities, you'll discover charming villages with olive groves, and hidden gems that only become accessible with a car. The mountainous terrains, particularly in regions like the Peloponnese or Epirus, provide captivating views but can also challenge drivers with winding roads. Overall, with a bit of preparation and an understanding of local driving nuances, touring Greece by car will become an enriching experience.

How old should I be to rent a car in Greece?

The basic requirement to rent a car in Greece is you must be at least 21 years old. However, this age stipulation can differ among rental companies, and certain premium or larger vehicles might have a higher age minimum. Additionally, drivers aged between 21 and 25 are sometimes subject to young driver surcharges, which can vary in amount depending on the rental agency. While your primary driving license is essential, it's important to investigate whether the rental agency mandates an international driving permit, especially for those coming from outside the European Union. Some companies might also ask for a credit card to secure a deposit before handing over the vehicle. Always remember to read through and understand the insurance policies offered. While some might come as standard, others might be optional add-ons that can provide extra peace of mind.
