Greece car hire information

Does Greece have any unique traffic laws?

If you plan to rent a car in Greece, then you need to know that all foreigners are required to have and carry an International Driver’s License. All passengers sitting in the front seat must be over 10 years old, and it is illegal to use your mobile phone while driving in Greece, so you run the risk of being stopped and fined by the traffic police if you do. You should be aware when you drive your rental car that beeping the horn is illegal in urban areas, such as cities and towns, but is very common in rural areas as a way to communicate with other drivers. Drivers often beep while going around tight corners, especially on single-lane roads in the mountainous or coastal regions, as a way to notify oncoming traffic of their presence. A lot of local drivers also tend to drive in the centre of the road to give themselves a better view of the road ahead, so beeping will give them time to move over or to stop and let you pass.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Greece?

Most car hire companies require drivers to be 21 or older, and up until you are 25 years old, most car rental companies will apply a daily surcharge due to your age. Some car hire companies may require you to be older than 21 years old, but this depends on the company policy, while others have a limit of 70 years old for renting a car. You are required to have held your original driving license for at least one year as well as an international driver’s license to be able to rent a car. Fire and third-party insurance is always included in the deal, but if you want to, you can opt for more comprehensive insurance. Most car hire companies require you to pay with a credit card and do not accept debit cards, but this will depend on the rental car company policy.

Which areas of Greece have the most traffic?

The area of Greece that has the most traffic is the capital city of Athens. In general, driving in Athens is deemed necessary by the locals as they don't view their public transport system as adequate, reliable, or frequent enough, and so a lot of the locals choose to drive even short distances. This makes Athens one of the most congested cities in the world, so we recommend when choosing to drive a rental car in Athens, that you keep the traffic situation in mind, or consider walking and using public transport to get across the city centre, especially because parking is not easy. Outside of Athens, renting a car is the perfect way to see a magnificent country that is famous for its beautiful sights, especially on the islands where it is easy to drive around traffic-free.

What are the best scenic roads in Greece?

One scenic route that we highly recommend is the drive from Ioannina to Meteora, in Epirus, western Greece. The route is not so long, and if you were to drive without making stops it would take about two hours, but we recommend stopping off and visiting some of the wonderful sights along the way, such as the lakeside towns Ioannina and Kastoria. The road will take you through the Pindus Mountains and crosses into Thessaly where you can finish up by visiting the world-famous monasteries of Meteora.
