Transport

[transport]

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 Hire Greece

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.

Driving

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.

Things To See and Do

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.

Best Time To Visit

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.

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 121CarHire.com 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 121CarHire.com? at this location
