Car Rental Greece - FAQs

How it works

Once you've made your booking for your car hire in Greece, we will send you an email confirmation. This will contain your booking reference, as well as details of your car hire provider. Your confirmation will also detail the location of the car hire desk/office.

Insurance - we've got you covered

Our Greece car hire agreements all include a collision damage waiver. This means that, in the event of theft or damage you won't be charged any more than your excess.

Here at Holiday Extras, our mission is to make your Greece car hire as hassle-free as possible. Our total protection insurance will give you that extra peace of mind should you be involved in an accident or damage the rental car while you're away. We regularly compare and price-check all our policies to ensure we're giving you the best cover. All our policies include the following:

  • Damage and theft excess
  • Damage protection for all mechanical and exterior of the car
  • Cover for any immobilisation, admin and towing charges
  • Free cancellation up to 48 hours before travel

On arrival - collecting your hire car in Greece

When you collect your rental vehicle in Greece - whether you've opted for car hire in Rhodes, Corfu or Athens Airports, head to the appropriate car hire desk. Here, a member of the team will go through the paperwork of the car rental agreement with you. You will need to complete some paperwork before the keys to the car are handed over. They will also go through the fuel policy with you - namely whether the car is being supplied with a full tank of fuel and how it should be returned, as well as if there is any mileage limit.

You need to ensure you have the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code

Driving in Greece**

There are few local laws that you may find useful when driving in Greece. This is a rough guide and should be used in conjunction with the terms and conditions stipulated by your car hire company, as well as your own research about driving laws in Greece.

  • Left hand drive - Drive on the right-hand side of the road, and overtake on the left.
  • Minimum age to hire - Be at least 18. Under 25's may have to pay a young driver surcharge.
  • Seatbelt - Greek law requires all car occupants to wear a seatbelt front and back. If a driver/passenger is exempt from wearing a seatbelt on medical grounds, they must provide a medical exemption certificate, translated into Greek as proof.
  • Children - Children under 3 years must be place in a suitable child restraint. Children between 3 and 11 years old, less that 1.35m in height must be seated in the appropriate restraint for their size.
  • Mobile phones - it is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving, unless using a handsfree kit or earphones.

Drinking and driving

It is prohibited to drive if the levels of alcohol in the blood or breath are above the admissible limit. The admissible limit in the blood is 0.25mg per litre of breath. If you amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds 0.05% or more, this is deemed a criminal offence and penalties will be exacted.

It is important to note that drinking alcohol and then driving may invalidate your car rental insurance, irrespective of local drink driving laws. Check your policy for full details.

Driving licence

Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence

A UK driving licence will allow you to drive in Greece, and you will not need an IDP - International Driving Permit.

Passport - You may also be required to carry another form of personal ID with you while driving.

**This information should be considered as a broad overview of things to remember when hiring a car. It is therefore very important that you read the rental terms and conditions and associated policies for your own specific policy as well as doing your own research into the motoring laws of the country in which you will be driving.
