Hiring a car in Athens

Road signs are poor, traffic is terrible, road rage is prevalent, and parking is practically impossible. So I wouldn’t really recommend driving in Athens. However a car will come in very handy if you plan to hit the beaches, most of which aren’t accessible by public transport. All the major car rental companies have offices in Athens. Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Auto Europe, Sixt, Alamo and Budget all have offices at Athens Airport. You can use the booking form above to find the best available rates.
