Top tips for renting a car in Athens

  • Need to pick up a rental car after landing in Athens? Fortunately for visitors, the rental car counters are right within the main terminal building. Simply follow the signs to the rental car center located on the arrivals level of the main terminal, after baggage claim.
  • Drivers in Athens should be careful of pedestrians crossing the street at random times, as jaywalking is extremely common in the city, especially on the smaller streets in the downtown area.
  • Rush hour in any major city can be an inconvenience and, unfortunately, Athens is no exception. Morning rush hour typically lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour lasts from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. However, on a positive note, traffic is not much of a problem outside of Athens’ downtown core. So, if you plan on checking out the nearby sites, then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem as long as you avoid the tourist buses.
  • Looking forward to exploring Athens? Well, renting a car is definitely one of the best ways to get around. For instance, if you want to go from the Acropolis and Parthenon to a seaside stroll by the Bay of Zea, you could spend an hour on public transport, or you could drive there in twenty minutes. If you plan on visiting the countryside, there simply is no better way than at your own pace in your own vehicle.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Athens for C$ 48 or less
  • Book your rental car in Athens at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Athens are around 39% cheaper than airport locations on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Athens?

Due to the mostly narrow, winding streets in Athens, smaller vehicles are highly recommended. Small cars are the norm in Greece anyway, so even outside of Athens it is highly recommended that you stick to a compact car.

What's the speed limit in Athens?

Speed limits, unless otherwise specified, are 50 km/h (31 mph) on residential roads and in cities, 90 km/h (56 mph) on country roads, and 110 - 130 km/h (68 - 81 mph) on highways.

How are gas prices in Athens?

Unfortunately for drivers, average gas prices in Athens, like in many European cities, are quite high. On average, drivers can expect to pay about €1.62 ($1.84) per liter of gas in Athens. In gallons, that means you will be paying roughly €6.12 ($6.95) per gallon.

Where are the best places to park in Athens?

Finding an ideal streetside parking spot in Athens is a bit of a Sisyphean task. Double parking is the norm and the roads are cramped and full of cars duking it out for any available space. So save yourself the hassle and stick to parking garages. They are by far the best option because you can simply park and then hop on public transport to get to your final destination. Parking garages are particularly recommended for those who plan on visiting the city center, as traffic jams are the norm.
