KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Thessaloniki

  • Every designated driver of cheap car rentals in Thessaloniki should know the seatbelt laws that exist in this country before driving through the Greece countryside. Driving rules state that every passenger in the vehicle, whether riding in the front or the rear of the car, must wear a seatbelt while the vehicle is in motion. Any children that are 11 years old or less than 4 feet 5 inches tall must ride in an approved child safety seat or booster seat while in the vehicle.
  • While most of us take it for granted that we have our phones with us all the time, it is crucial to know the laws in Greece regarding using a mobile device while driving in cheap car rentals in Thessaloniki. You must not be texting, emailing, browsing social media, or the internet while operating a vehicle. You can use a mobile device to make and receive phone calls or utilize your phone's built-in GPS, but you can only do this when you use the mobile device in a hands-free manner.
  • Beyond the cultural and scenic reasons to visit cities in Greece, there are plenty of annual events that take place in Thessaloniki. One of these events, known as Agios Dimitrios takes place in late October when all schools and various public services are closed. On this day, you can expect to see hordes of people running throughout the city center causing roads blocks and even disrupting public transport schedules. Another great event that occurs every autumn is the International Film Festival in Thessaloniki. Unless you plan to stay at the celebrations until the road blocks clear, leaving your vehicle at the hotel is advisable because it would be a near-impossible task to maneuver your rental through a parade of partygoers.
  • Make the most out of your trip to the ancient city of Thessaloniki and access archaeological sites like the Triumphal Arch of Galerius, the Galerius Maximianus Palace, or some of the Byzantine constructions conveniently with a rental car. With a car, travelers can also explore adjoining areas like Halkidiki and the scenic beaches or the Edessa Waterfall, both of which are a bit over one hour and 15 minutes of driving away.
  • Get your rental car directly at Thessaloniki airport and be in the city center in under half an hour. Cars can be rented at the service desks located at the terminals and companies like Sixt, Europcar, and Hertz offer their vehicles for travelers to enjoy during their trip to Thessaloniki. For travelers arriving at Thessaloniki Port, there are car rental facilities there, too, and drivers can take the 26is Oktovriou to be in the heart of the city in less than 10 minutes.
  • Thessaloniki is well connected, as some of the bigger highways meet in the city and lead to the Inner Ring Road, which goes directly into the city. However, the streets are not always in a good condition and in Greece, adhering to the rules can be seen as a weakness, so driving defensively and extra carefully is a good idea. Changing lanes can also be challenging, as it is sometimes not clear where the two lanes are, so observing where the rest of the cars divide can be helpful.
  • During morning and evening rush hours, the streets in Thessaloniki can clog up. Try to avoid driving between 9-10 am during mornings and 6-7 pm in the evenings, as workers go in and out of the city. Generally, congestion is not very bad in Thessaloniki and usually traffic is pretty fluid, so exploring the city and surroundings should not cost too much extra time.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Thessaloniki for C$ 46 or less
  • Book your rental car in Thessaloniki at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Thessaloniki 
juanJul. 2023
Driving around Thessaloniki is very is and straight forward. Like all countries, always stick to the middle or right lane and only use the far left lane for passing or driving fast. Carry cash for the tolls as well (very cheap tolls)
Verified travelerMay 2023
No issues. Lots of tolls driving south.

FAQs about renting a car in Thessaloniki

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Thessaloniki?

    As parking can be difficult in the city, opting for a compact car can be advantageous. For families who need a little extra space, a minivan is a spacious yet somewhat compact option. As the roads can be bumpy and riddled with potholes in Greece, make sure the insurance covers every scratch and document whether the car had any such scratches beforehand.

  • What’s the speed limit in Thessaloniki?

    All speed regulations are given in kilometers per hour in Greece, but, as the speedometer in the rental car is also set in km/h, that should be not a problem -- even for travelers not used to the metric system. Inside the city and residential areas, unless otherwise indicated, 50 km/h (31 mph) are permitted, 90 km/h (55 mph) on country roads and up to 130 km/h (80 mph) on highways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Thessaloniki?

    Parking in Thessaloniki can be a challenge, so parking in a paid parking lot and taking public transport into the city is likely a better option.

  • If I plan on doing some surfing in Greece and I'm going to bring my surfboard, will I be able to fit it in my rental vehicle?

    One of the best ways to make sure you can take your surfboard with you is to rent an SUV or a pickup truck. It is also a good idea to add a navigation system to your rental to ensure you find your favorite surf spots quickly.

I went for the economy option, and that’s what I got. It wasn’t a luxurious ride, but it got me where I needed to go, and that was just fine. Most importantly, the process was east and they didn’t pull any nasty surprises on me. I would use them again.

Experience was great. Easy pickup and accommodating drop off for a little extra but no problems at all. Customer service was great as well. Rental car office is located 2 minutes down the road from the airport. Only thing would be better instructions for where the pickup shuttle is when outside the airport.
