Location information for Greece

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

Positioned at the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe, Greece is a country which changed modern civilization with such contributions as the Olympic Games, political science and drama and literature. The vast landscape is made of high mountains, open farmlands and stunning beaches. One of the best ways to explore Greece is by cheap hire car.

The capital city of Athens is centrally located on the southern tip of the mainland and has a wealth of historic and cultural attractions such as the Acropolis. Athens is also home to charming city streets with fine restaurants, alfresco cafés and trendy nightclubs.

For fun in the sun, Greece is spoilt for choice with over 1,400 islands, many of which are set up with hotels, resorts and entertainment activities. Crete is one of the largest islands and has a bustling town centre with shopping, busy pubs and interesting museums.

In the winter, starting from December, Greece has some fantastic ski resorts to visit by car rental. Mount Parnassos located just a short distance from Athens is the biggest resort with an extensive ski complex, over 20 runs and a host of hotels. Mount Vermio in the north of Greece has some more challenging slopes and intense cross county skiing opportunities.

The northwest of Greece is home to a varied landscape with interesting cultural sites as well as open farmlands growing olives and grapes. Using a hire car in Greece to explore the countryside is a great way to discover the real soul of Greece. The roads are well laid out and easy to navigate, making for a comfortable journey.

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 HireCars.co.uk 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. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by HireCars.co.uk? at this location
