Location information for Athens

If you are a great lover of history, a visit to the ancient city of Athens will make your holiday worthwhile. The city today may be just as congested as any other modern city but its historical importance makes it a crowd favourite among travellers. To easily get around the city, you might want to arrange for cheap car hire in Athens.

Take your car rental for a drive to the Acropolis, the most famous tourist attraction and landmark in the city. It is centrally located and is elevated above modern Athens so it wouldn't be hard to miss. The Acropolis boasts of excellent views of the entire city and the remains of the Ancient Theatre of Dionysus. Within the Acropolis, you will find architectural masterpieces from the pre-Christian era including the Parthenon and the Propylaia.

From the Acropolis, drive to the National Archaeological Museum where you will find an extensive collection of gold relics from the ancient towns of Mycenae and interesting Minoan frescoes from Santorini. The Goulandris Museum of Cycladic and Ancient Greek Art is also a must-see.

While you're in Athens, make sure to sample some of the city's best Greek specialties such as the moussaka. You will find a number of traditional restaurants and food outlets to satisfy your discerning palate. The marketplace is the perfect place to go for retail therapy as it features a wide assortment of souvenirs and locally made items.

From there, take your cheap car hire in Athens for day trips outside the city. A good two-hour drive to the outskirts will take you to the Peleponnese peninsula where you will find the ancient sites of Corinth, Mycenae and Epidaurus.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
