    Thessaloniki Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Rent a car at Thessaloniki Airport! Then drive into the city, find a good parking spot, and walk along the Walls of Thessaloniki, heading towards the symbol of the city, the White Tower. See beautiful Byzantine churches like the Agia Sophia and Agios Demetrios, and visit museums such as the Archeological Museum and the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art. And if you only check out one museum, make it the Museum of Ancient Greek, Byzantine, and Post-Byzantine Musical Instruments—it’s a definite must-see.

    The suburbs of Thessaloniki are home to the popular Perea Beach and Epanomi Beach, but you’ll find pristine beaches along all three “fingers” of the nearby Chalkidiki Peninsula. Getting around with your own rental car is the best way to explore them. Axios Loudias National Park and Olympus National Park are nearby too and perfect for a day trip.

    Thessaloniki’s a great destination, but the region has so much more to offer. Why not get a longer term car rental deal and see more of northern Greece, or visit neighboring Albania, Bulgaria, or Macedonia? You can even pick up your rental car at Thessaloniki Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today! 

    Thessaloniki Airport is also known as “Makedonia,” Ratikós Aeroliménas Thessaloníkis "Makedonía," and Mikra Airport.
