Important information about Zakynthos car hire

Can I leave Greece with a rental car from Zakynthos?

The Greece authority allows locals and foreigners to cross the border into a permitted country with a hired car at a fee. However, the cross-border fee fluctuates with changes in cross-border policies, business strategies between Greece and neighbouring countries and local insurance companies. Therefore, it is pretty hard to determine an accurate cross-border fee estimate. Some car hire in Zakynthos requires that a hirer purchase additional insurance coverage before crossing a border with their hired car. Some Zakynthos car hire companies have luxurious cars; thus, they impose strict restrictions for fear of damage. Greece prohibits travelling with hired cars into countries facing foreign policy restrictions and political instability. Zakynthos is an island, and its car hire policies may differ. For example, you will likely be charged an extra fee to take a hired car on a ferry.

Can you hire a car in Zakynthos without a credit card?

Most agents for car hire in Zakynthos prefer people to pay with a credit card, and car hire companies in the city especially only accept bank issued Mastercard or Visa cards with embossed numbers. However, some cheap car rentals in Zakynthos also offer the option for hiring a car with just a debit card, so there’s no need to worry if you don’t have a credit card. When you hire a car with a debit card in Zakynthos, the hire car company will likely charge you an insurance excess deposit. It refers to the amount charged on a credit card in case a vehicle gets stolen or damaged. The amount tends to vary based on the location and type of the vehicle. The amount will be held on your card until you return the vehicle. Those who wish to pay for a car hire with a debit card will have the same deposit deducted from their bank account and refunded once they return the car. Car hire in Zakynthos often requires hirers to leave a deposit worth a full tank of fuel before picking up a car.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Zakynthos?

Greece records quite a high number of accidents. The standard of roads is one of the contributors to this problem. For example, a smooth stretch of road could have an unnoticeable pothole. Unlike locals, foreigners may not be able to spot all these potholes and, as much, may swerve to avoid them. Drink driving is also a major cause of accidents in Zakynthos. Always drive in the right lane and beware of scooters and motorcyclists. Always check your left side before turning because it is quite usual for cars in Zakynthos to overtake from the left side. Also, avoid running a red light, as it can attract a hefty penalty. It is also illegal to use a mobile phone while driving in the streets of Zakynthos.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Zakynthos?

All hirers must present a valid passport or identity card and full, valid driving licence before picking up a hire car in Zakynthos. The driver must have held their driving licence for at least one year to be eligible for a car hire in Zakynthos. Hirers with a Switzerland or EU member state driving licence don’t require an International Driving Permit before hiring a hire car in Zakynthos, and UK drivers can also drive with their government-issued driving licence without applying for an IDP. However, foreigners from other countries must present a valid state-issued driver’s licence plus an International Driving Permit before operating a vehicle in Zakynthos. You must also be 21 years old or above to hire a car in Greece. Drivers under 25 years of age may incur a young driver surcharge.
