    Frequent Questions On the Subject of Greece Car Hires

    Is it possible to book a car hire without a credit card in Greece?

    The majority of car hire companies do mandate that travellers have a credit card to book their auto hire. But if there is a local company that allows you to book a car hire in Greece with a debit card, Auto Europe can help you locate that company and arrange the booking. Contact Auto Europe for assistance.

    Do I need an international driver's permit (IDP) to drive in Greece?

    11 Countries require foreign drivers to carry an IDP in their car hire vehicle. These countries include Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Iceland, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Serbia, the UAE (United Arab Emirates), South Africa, Argentina, and Australia. Auto Europe recommends that all travellers driving internationally carry an IDP. It's cheap, easy to obtain, and having one with you can be incredibly useful if you have a fender-bender while driving in Greece.

    Driving in Greece

    Discover the captivating and richly historical country of Greece. Greece boasts a mix of old and new culture and much to do throughout the year. If you are planning to visit Greece in the summer, be prepared to lie on the beach and relax. Swim for days on end in the crystal blue water, enjoy a fresh ice cream or head to the shops and get out of the heat.

    Explore Greece on your next self-drive holiday and visit famous sites such as the Acropolis and Parthenon in the city centre of Athens, after picking up your car hire at top destinations such as the Athens International Airport. Drive to the beaches and swim in the Mediterranean sea or travel to the famous Greek islands such as Mykonos and Santorini to see the infamous white and blue buildings that are picture perfect. Travel through the country and try local delicacies including feta, olives, Greek salad and of course the local wine.

    Country Essentials

    Traffic in Greece flows on the right side of the road, similar to many other European countries. Speed limits in Greece range from 50km/hour in the city to 100km/hour on highways and freeways. Child seats are mandatory for children up to age 4 and seatbelts must be worn at all times by the driver and passengers.

    Standard Inclusions

    In Greece, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection are included in our Auto Europe rates. The CDW and theft protection reduces the deductible (responsibility of the client) to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in your car hire. Super CDW is usually offered locally to reduce the deductible of your auto hire to as low as zero.

    Personal Effects Protection ensures select items if stolen from the car hire and is available with select suppliers. Personal Accident Insurance is also available locally with select suppliers. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only, rates subject to change without notice.

    Excess Refund Insurance can be purchased from Auto Europe when you make your booking. This insurance refunds your excess costs up to $5000 should any damage occur to the vehicles during your car hire.Economy Car Hire

    Licence Requirements

    It's a requirement that all motorists hiring a vehicle are aged 21 years or older. Some suppliers may charge a young driver's fee for drivers aged under age 25, or a senior driver's fee for those aged 75 and over. Drivers must also carry their New Zealand Drivers licence on them at all times, as well as an international driving permit.

    Tolls and Freeways

    There are two toll roads in Greece, one goes from Athens to the Peloponnesus and the other goes from Athens to Thessaloniki. If you use these toll roads there are three payment options which include an electronic tag, cash or a special account card.

    Border Crossings

    Travel outside of Greece is generally restricted unless pre-approved by the supplier. Vehicles hired in Greece may be driven outside of the country by special arrangement. An additional fee will be charged for this service for green card insurance, which is not available for all car categories. Not all suppliers will allow travel to other countries and this is on a strictly request basis only. Domestic one-way hires are available between select locations within Greece and additional fees and minimum car hire durations may apply. International one-way hires are not permitted from Greece.
