Athens Airport

Airport Car Rental

The capital of not just Greece, but, in some sense, Western civilization as a whole, Athens is as historic a destination as they come. From ancient landmarks to medieval gems and the modern art scene, the city has something for every visitor to enjoy. These are three of the city’s most notable landmarks:

  • The Acropolis. The heart of old Athens, the Acropolis is naturally the most visited place in the city. In addition to landmarks like Parthenon, many notable sites are also located around the Acropolis and can be conveniently visited during the same visit. The Acropolis is in the center of town, just a ten-minute walk or a five-minute drive away from Syntagma Square.
  • The Museum of Ancient Greek Technology. As could be expected, Athens is home to a number of museums dedicated to the ancient Hellenic world. While not as large and immediately impressive as some others, this little cultural institution dedicated to the inventive genius of the ancient inhabitants of the area is one of the most interesting. Divided into three sections, the museum explores Ancient Greek technology, as well as the unusual musical instruments that were popular at the time.
  • Kaisariani Monastery. Another historically important place, but dating to significantly more recent times, this monastery was built at the turn of the 11th and 12th centuries when the area was ruled by the Byzantines. Despite being more than 900 years old, it continues to perform its original function and is open for worshippers and visitors alike. The monastery is located in a beautiful place on the foothills of Mount Hymettus and is surrounded by a vast green area that is a popular destination for walks. The drive from the city center takes 30 to 40 minutes.
  • The Ancient Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus. The Ancient Agora was the main civic center in Ancient Greece. Philosophers like Socrates and Plato would walk through the streets and markets, sharing wisdom with everyone they encountered. Look out for the Stoa of Attalos, a colonnaded marketplace once home to over 40 stores that today houses the Agora Museum. The Temple of Hephaestus was built around the same time as the Parthenon (450 BC) and had a similar design. It is dedicated to Hephaestus, God of Fire, and Athena Ergane, Goddess of Pottery and Crafts.

FAQ

Are there any charges for collecting a car at midnight or outside of business hours?
Yes, most of the companies charge an out of hours fee for picking up or dropping off the car outside of their normal business hours. This fee varies from 30-50 EUR. When choosing a vehicle on our website, make sure to adjust the correct times and any out of hours fee will be automatically added to the total price.
Is it possible to have the car delivered to our hotel?
Yes, it is possible to have a rental car delivered to your hotel in Athens. Some car rental companies provide hotel delivery if it is within a 30 kilometer of the car rental office. You will likely be cha
Does Full Coverage waive or reduce the deposit?
Full Coverage is provided by DiscoverCars.com. The full deposit will still need to be made when picking up the vehicle.
Can I take the car on a ferry?
Yes, most, but certainly not all, rental companies allow their cars to be taken on ferries. However, you must receive permission ahead of time and will likely be charged an extra fee. Be absolutely sure the rental company allows this in order to avoid potentially large charges.
Do I need an International Driving Permit in Greece?
If you driver's license was issued in the European Union, you do not need an IDP. If your driver's license was issued in another country, you must have an IDP in addition to your license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car at Athens Airport?
Most companies require drivers to be at least 21 years old. Centauro, though, will rent to drivers that are at least 19. Keep in mind that almost all companies charge an additional fee for drivers under 25.

We drove to Nafplio and used that as a base to visit Mycene and Epidaurus. There are lost of other great sites nearby. Drove to Ermioni and caught a ferry to Ydra (Hydra). A gem of an island with almost no motorized traffic. Lastly we stayed in Delphi. The temple of Apollo and Athene are worth a visit, but it is also a great area for hiking (and skiing in the winter on nearby Mt Parnassos).

Having only 2.5 days, going to the Peloponese peninsula was really a waste of time, bad choice by me. I spent most time driving and that made me sad. It would be much better going to the Cape Sounion, seeing the Temple of Poseidon, and relax from driving.

We visited many archeological sites, kayaked in the Saronic Gulf, and enjoyed Kiveri. Our trip started in Athens, North to Delphi, then to Patras, Olympia, Marothopoli and then spent 7 days based in Kiveri. The people are warm and friendly but get used to cray drivers and random parking.

Avance at Athens are pick up from the Airport. While you can get a cheaper deal if you go off site with a shuttle bus, this adds time waiting for shuttle buses and the cars are usually in poorer condition and there's much more of a chance you'll be asked to pay for damage already on the car.

We did everything from mountain roads, centre of Athens and temples. The car was perfect for all situations, maybe struggled with steep hills.

Pros: Good value. Low price for a decent rental in overall good condition that made my trip possible without problems. Friendly and efficient rental staff. Cons: Rental was advertised as full-to-full but ended up same-to-same with 2/8 fuel on pick-up (gas is expensive in Greece!). Rental car was also a little outdated and not in pristine conditions (but clean interior). There was also just water instead of windshield wiper fluid. Rental location is also a little far away from airport, although the shuttle was easy to catch and got me to and from the airport without problems. Overall: You get what you pay for. I had a very good price and got a car that 100% got the job done, even if it wasn't the nicest rental car ever, with some corners cut on the overall rental experience. Friendly and efficient staff helped overlook the cut corners. Good rental agency for anyone who doesn't need anything fancy from the rental experience.

Travellers should visit Acropolis and the new history museum before climbing up to Acropolis. Also the Niarchos national gallery next to Hilton Hotel. Finally walk from Syntagma square to Ermou Street, see the Monastiraki fleet market and proceed to Psyri area and sit in one of its beautiful Cafes. For food return back to Monastiraki area and sit in one of the many restaurants serving kebabs and souvlaki preceded by Greek salad with fetta and olives and of course tomatoes and cucambers and with Greek with extra virgin oil for dressing. Plaka area is also very interesting.

Had a great trip to Greece where I was doing a half Ironman on the Costa Navarino. Hiring a car was perfect as I had lots of stuff including a big bike box, and it gave me flexibility and independence. Greek people are just so friendly, from hotel staff to local restaurants. I will definitely be doing a more substantial trip there in the not too distant future.

I wouldn't rent a car to visit the city of Athens, since public transport is convenient and affordable (and much less hassle than driving in traffic). On the other hand, we rented a car to drive around Greece, and it was well worth it: long distance trains or coaches are a real pain and a difficult maze to navigate (especially if you don't speak Greek).

Athens itself, of course, doesn't need advertisement. Regarding car rentals, I've always found it very easy and a good option if you want to explore less well-known places outside the cities (For inside the city or travelling from one city to another, public transport is fine).

Don't rent a car if you are only visiting Athens, but if you are going further afield it is almost essential. We toured the Peloponnese and had a wonderful trip.

Athens is the first place due to the Monastiraki, acropolis/Parthenon the museum, Syntagma, Pireaus, Loutraki, Peloponese. than worth take a drive to Loutraki, Peloponese, islands. It is hard to do everything at once, however Greece ids Greece and you love it to what it is.

If you're going to vacation on a Greek island, as we do, consider using Discover and renting from Avance or another car rental company for pickup at the airport. Yes, it costs extra to take the car on the ferry boat to your island or islands, but you'll save over the often higher rental charges from rental companies on the islands.
