What to see and do while in Athens

Athens is home to world-renowned landmarks of great historical significance, the pinnacle being the Parthenon, but also make sure you visit the Erechtheion, the Propylaea and the Temple of Athena Nike. Visit Filopappou Hill at sunset and enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Athens, afterwards relax in one of the many restaurants and enjoy traditional Greek food. Athens car hire is a great option for taking a day trip to Delphi, the town is about 100 miles from Athens and best reached by car.    

Athens in summer 2021

Athens enjoys hot and sunny summers, wander the streets of Plaka and visit the many family-run shops to bring back something special from your trip. Visit Psiri in the evenings for an endless choice of bars, restaurants and cafés. The National Garden is a peaceful break from the city and beautiful in the summer months.

Great experience overall.

We rented an Opel Corsa for two days in the Athens office.

The people in the office were super nice and quite fast.

We had to make a 100 euro deposit and received it back within two days.

Honestly, the best experience that I have had renting a car.

Really good service experience. Very accommodating and helpful.

The car was in a very good condition. Again next time in Athens.

I went to Greece last week with 3 children and we rent a BMW X1. Very happy with client servicing: check in was ok at airport but people make a strong case to add insurance policies, adding significant amounts so frankly, for me, this is a bit negative as they try to frighten you so that you take insurance but this is useless in my view (your credit card insures you in most of the cases) . The only snag is how to find the parking when you need to bring back the car, this is the case for all rental companies but it's not easy with no indication at all (except on the right just after motorway entrance), a plan should be a good idea for drivers as if you have a plane, better to schedule 30 minutes to find the parking...

And no surprise on the bill.

What a company, mrs. Zafiria was amazing with everything, can not ask for anything more, 10 stars from me.

January, the manager, was lovely in distress. She helped me get thru the busy line and was very accommodating. The systems were lagging and she did everything she could to make everyone at ease.
