Driving Licence Requirements
For those from within the EU looking to rent a car in Greece you will need either a valid licence from an EU country or a Greek one. If your driving licence isn't printed in the Roman alphabet we will also need you to provide a valid International driving licence. Drivers from countries that are not part of the Geneva/ Vienna Convention on Road Traffic will need to provide an official English translation of their licence along with the original. You'll also need to show us a valid passport or ID card.
The minimum age for drivers here is 21. Drivers aged 21 and 22 can hire a car, but will have to pay a small daily surcharge. For many categories of car hire in Greece, you have to be aged 25 or over, and have held a valid licence for at least three years.
If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident in your rental car, you can reach the emergency services in Greece by calling 112 from any telephone including mobile. You can also call the police on 100, ambulance on 166 or the fire brigade by dialling 199. All calls to the emergency services are free.
