Important information about Athens car rentals

There are over ten rental car locations in Athens and the surrounding area, which makes it easy to secure a vehicle. Car rentals in Athens are a great way to explore everything the metropolis has to offer, including the National Archaeological Museum and the Hellenic Motor Museum. They’re also a great way to access sites of interest outside of the city, especially since there are several major freeways that provide regional service, including Greek National Roads 1, 54, 56 and 91. While driving, you may notice that motorcycles operate at a reduced speed, so if you need to pass them, wait for a designated passing area to do so safely. When staying within city limits, parking fees are reasonable, but you’ll want to make sure you’re paying any meters on time since the spots are monitored closely.

Securing a cheap car rental in Athens is a great way to explore the vast metropolis and the rich history that lies in and around the area. And with a great number of available parking garages that offer reasonable fees, it can be an economical way to explore, too. When staying within the city limits, you’ll find that the capital of Greece is quite walkable—the historic center of the city is favorable to pedestrians and there are also several modes of public transportation that allow visitors to quickly access the various neighborhoods. However, when you’re ready to explore other seaside or ancient sites, such as the port city of Pireas and Corinth—both of which are within an hour’s drive—an Athens car rental will be the best way to reach these sites. There are even passenger van rentals available, so you can bring a whole group with you. That said, you’ll want to be careful to avoid rush hours in Athens, which are typically around mid-morning and around mid-afternoon to early evening.

If you’ve chosen an Athens car rental for your trip, you’ll want to be aware of the local traffic laws. For instance, the guidelines around drinking and driving in Greece are quite strict; individuals who have a BAC—or blood alcohol content—that is 0.05% or higher are prohibited from operating a motor vehicle. Additionally, all individuals within a vehicle are required to keep their seatbelts fastened at all times. Like most European countries, the Greeks drive on the right side of the road and there are variant speed limits that are dictated by the utility of the roadway, with major freeways operating at speeds that are more than twice the limits posted on urban streets. All travelers who have chosen car rentals in Athens are encouraged to check with the city’s department of motor vehicles for recent law changes ahead of their trip.

Visitors who want to get rental cars in Athens will need to ensure that they have obtained an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) ahead of their trip, which is the standard policy in the EU. Upon arriving in the country, you will need to present both the IDP and a valid government-issued driver’s license from your home country. To secure the rental, you’ll also need to show your passport. Additionally, to get a car rental in Athens you will need to supply a major credit card that has a high available credit limit.
