Important information about Athens car hire

You can cross the border with your car hire in Athens, Greece, but you need to be informed about all that is required. The requirements differ by each hire company, but there are always extra charges associated with crossing the border with an Athens car hire. When you select the country you want to visit during your booking through momondo, the extra charge will come up. You will need to have a valid identification card and your international driving permit with you. Ensure you have the legal papers required to enter the country of your choice. You might also be requested to present the car papers and the agreement you have with the hire car company. Driving to non-Schengen countries like Bulgaria, Turkey, Albania and North Macedonia would require your passport and evidence that you have paid the required road tax.

It is good to pay with your credit card for your car hire in Athens, but there are other flexible payment options with cheap car rentals in Athens. The next best option is your debit card; your bank will be charged when making payments with your debit card. When you are making the car booking through momondo, the name on the debit card needn’t match your name (if you are the driver) at this stage. Rather, at the point of pick-up, valid identification would be required. Still, you need to read through the payment terms and conditions to ensure you are doing the right thing for your car hire in Athens. Some more flexible hire companies allow payment with PayPal through their website. There might be some restrictions on using your PayPal for payment, but once that is rectified, you can make your payment with the account.

Your driving licence must be valid, and you must be at least 18 years old to be allowed to drive in Athens. A driving licence issued in any of the EU or EEA countries is acceptable. If you have an international driving licence, it is also accepted in Athens. Your driving papers and form of identification must also be valid, including insurance papers and your V5 registration document. While driving in Athens, remember that cars on the right have the right of way, and you can't just overtake when approaching a level crossing. Sound your horn only when necessary or in cases of emergency. Ensure you understand the different speed limits for different roads, and any children travelling with you must wear their seat belts as required. Be sure to go through all the terms and conditions, as the agencies provide more information regarding driving rules in Athens.

An international traveller in need of car hire in Athens should have an international driving permit. They should also have a valid national driving licence; there is a penalty for both the driver and the hire company in Athens if these requirements are not met. In addition, your passport must be valid as well as the car insurance (although, that is the responsibility of the hire company). A valid form of identification is needed before you can hire a car in Athens, and, of course, you should be within the required age limit to have access to the car. It is worthy to note the type of car you are driving because you might only be used to automatic gear cars as an international driver. Most cars in Athens have manual gear transmission, so this is vital information you need to have as an international traveller hiring one of the cars in Athens.
