Car Hire FAQs

When looking for hired cars in Greece, you will need to be over the age of 21 and have had a valid driving license for at least one year, to be considered liable for car hires in Greece. The required age might vary depending on the car category, for example, luxury car hires in Greece usually require the driver to be at least 25 years old. You are required to show a valid EU Driving License or an International Driving License to book hire cars in Greece. They are a must-have requirement if you get into an accident or get pulled over by police.

What are the rules for driving in Greece?

Before you book your hire car in Greece, be sure to take note of the speed limits. Urban areas are 50 kph (30 mph) and 90 kph (55 mph) in rural areas. On the expressways, you can reach 110 kph (70 mph) and on the motorway, the limit is 130 kph (80 mph). When driving your car hire in Greece, you will drive on the right-hand side of the road. There are a few illegal actions when driving in Greece, not wearing a seatbelt is one of them, drinking and driving is another and talking on the phone while driving will result in a heavy fine or imprisonment in some cases. To make sure you are 100% up to date with the driving rules before you book your car hires in Greece, we recommend you check with The Hellenic Police department of motor vehicles online for any recent law changes.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Greece?

Driving in Greece will mean driving on narrow roads inland and windy mountainous roads at times. Some roads in the villages surrounding the valleys have sharp bends and quickly changing speed limits. For these driving conditions, we would recommend a smaller mini, or a compact SUV. If you don't usually drive a manual car, definitely don't start now in Greece, especially during the late autumn and winter months when the roads will be wet and harder to navigate. With this in mind, your best option for touring Greece by hire car is to hire a mini, as they are light on fuel and when driven with care are great for sharp turns and winding roads. If you are planning on an adventure holiday to explore coastlines and mountains such as the famous Mount Olympus then you need a 4WD vehicle. Most of the roads are not well paved and can require more advanced driving on the mountains. While cruising on the coastline, an automatic 4WD is fuel-efficient and effortless.
