Currently, the cheapest month to rent a car in Thessaloniki is January. The most expensive time to rent a car is August. The cheapest prices for each month are shown above, but prices will vary based on availability, how far out you book your rental car, and of course, car type.
In order to be able to use car hire in Thessaloniki, you will need to present the Thessaloniki car hire company with your valid driving licence and an International Driver’s Permit. It is quite common that the Thessaloniki car hire company also asks you for proof of your identity, and we recommend using your passport and a visa if you need it to enter the country. Generally, you need to be at least 21 years old, but if you are younger than 25, the company will probably apply a young driver’s fee. Most cheap car hire in Thessaloniki requires you to pay the deposit with a credit card; although, you can check with individual companies if they accept cash or debit cards as well.
When using car hire in Thessaloniki, you will drive on the right-hand side of the road and overtake on the left. All passengers must always wear their seatbelt, and no children under the age of 10 can sit in the front, even in hire cars in Thessaloniki. Child seats are required for children under the age of four, and if you have held your driving licence for less than two years, then the blood-alcohol limit is 0.02%, and rises to 0.05% after those two years. You cannot use your mobile phone while driving hire cars in Thessaloniki, unless you are using a hands-free device.
If you plan on driving around the city of Thessaloniki, then you will probably want to find cheap car hire in Thessaloniki that offers compact or economy cars, as this is all you need to navigate the tight lanes and busy traffic. It will also be easier to park. However, if you would like to travel outside the city, then we recommend an SUV, to be better equipped for any potholes or washouts that you may encounter on the national roads. Either way, we recommend that you use a car with air conditioning, to offer some relief from the intense heat.
Parking in Thessaloniki is very difficult and can get quite competitive as you approach the city centre. Most public car parks are paid, and it is typical to pay on site when parking at a popular tourist destination or archaeological site. If you see a blue board on the street, then parking is reserved for locals to the city, and instead you must park at spaces that have a white board for tourists and visitors. Parking is generally free from 16:00 on Saturday through to Monday morning.
