Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and its location in the southeast of Europe makes it easy to reach from both the east and west. With exotic food, a rich history, ancient monuments, great weather and exciting nightlife, Greece looks set to remain a favourite holiday spot for years to come.
There is a rail system on the Peloponnese peninsula, but no rail connections on the Greek islands. The main Greek rail stations are Athens and Larissa. Greece's main towns have bus services. However, buses often run according to demand, so are not always reliable. The most convenient and most reliable way to get around is with car hire in Greece. Most flights land at Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport in Athens, but many of the islands, including Corfu and Rhodes, have their own airports and frequent ferry services.
Car rental in Greece is readily available at major airports and rail stations as well as in the city centres of popular tourist destinations such as Heraklion. Alamo, Budget, Sixt, Thrifty and Avis all operate from the airports in Athens, Corfu, Rhodes and Crete. There are also many affordable local car hire companies. Driving in Greece is the best way to explore. It enables visitors to have their own exciting adventures without relying on public transport.
Drivers should be wary when driving on narrow mountain roads, but most roads in Greece are paved and in good condition. Easy links can be made from Athens to other major mainland cities via tolled motorways. Travellers should be sure to keep an up-to-date map with them and to compare car hire rates before arrival.
Greece has a wealth of things to see and do, and with over 100,000 kilometres of paved roads around the country, most attractions are within reach by car. One of the most popular sights and perhaps the most famous Greek landmark is the Acropolis in Athens. From the capital, visitors can drive to Olympia and learn about the history and origins of the Olympic Games, visit towns in the Peloponnese or venture to northern Greece. Car ferries operate from the Piraeus to many of the Greek islands.
Greece sees around 300 days of sunshine per year, so the weather is almost always good. Those looking to avoid big tourist crowds would do well to visit at the end of the peak season, which is between September and October. The average temperature is 18°C, but temperatures can drop to 6°C or lower in the winter.

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.
