Location information for Greece

Greece is best explored by rental car. CarhireSaving has over 68 pick-up locations in Greece. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Located in southeastern Europe on the bottom of the Balkan Peninsula, Greece is a popular holiday destination with over 1,400 islands. The country is steeped with history and heritage dating back thousands of years. The main cities are filled with modern attractions and historic cultural activities. One of the best ways to explore Greece is by hire car.

The capital city of Athens is a sprawling metropolis that has a wealth of historic sites to visit including the famous Acropolis, which is a popular tourist attraction. There are countless museums and galleries to visit throughout the city's streets although if you're in need of a break from the history, there are plenty of alfresco cafés, fine restaurants and terraced bars to enjoy.

During the winter months Greece has a number of ski fields to enjoy, some of which are located close to Athens. Mount Parnassos is the largest ski resort in the country and boasts over 20 runs with a vertical drop of 620 metres. Mount Helmos, reachable by car rental, is another resort near to Athens and provides some more challenging runs and breathtaking views of the surrounding region.

Thessaloniki is Greece's second largest city and is home to beautiful cobblestone streets, street side fountains and historic buildings and monuments. There are some interesting museums to visit including the Jewish History Museum, which explains the history of the local Jewish community. Thessaloniki is approximately 500kms from Athens and takes around seven hours to reach by car hire.

With a cheap hire car in Greece there is much to see in the top end of Greece. From Thessaloniki you can drive around 100kms to the famous Mount Olympus, which is the country's and one of Europe's highest mountains at 2,929 metres. An array of beautiful scenery can be seen along the drive here.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CarhireSaving the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
