Athens International Airport car hire 

Arranging your car hire at Athens International Airport is so easy with SIXT. Greece is a country of sunshine and outdoor living, so our models are tailored for that, with bookable extras like sat nav and child seats. We have MPVs to explore Athens and further afield, and 4x4s if you want to get off the beaten track. For efficient business visits, choose a saloon, or perhaps a compact car – perfect for negotiating the narrower streets in the city's older parts. Economy models are available to suit your budget, or you can splash out on a sports model or convertible to take advantage of the climate.

SIXT's location at Athens International Airport 

Our car hire branch at Athens International Airport is easy to find once you've landed. We're right there in the arrivals hall, between exits three and four. The airport has two main arrival gates – if you arrive at Gate A, turn right and you'll see our bright orange signage. From Gate B, you just turn left instead. To pick up your car, our agents will direct you to our parking office and car park, about 150 yards outside the airport building. These are open 24/7. To return your vehicle, follow the Car Rental signs and you'll see our parking lot on your right. 

Explore Athens with your car hire 

It's nigh impossible to cover all the main tourist sites in this ancient city, but there are some that stand out above the rest. A visit to the Acropolis is essential, where you'll also find the mythological icon of the Parthenon. The other big one is the Olympieion, the temple of Zeus. Hadrian's arch is also nearby, as are the National Gardens with its walking trails. Then take advantage of your hire car and explore outside the city. Drive out to Philopappou Hill, and visit the Church of Demetrius Loumbardiaris, a wonderfully quaint little Byzantine chapel.

Excellent customer experience!!

Galit D.

Highly recommended!

The agency is inside the arrival hall and the car is walking distance from there. The car was brand new and the agent at the desk was very professional and kind.

The return process was 3 min.

Great service. All the staff is very nice and speaking English, renting a car took us half an hour and returning – only 10 minutes. No international driving license was needed (heard that it can be a problem if you have russian national license, but it was enough). The car itself was completely okay and the price is great for overall quality and service.


It isn't easy to find the parking when you renting a car, but returning it was really easy, Google maps directly leads you to the "car rental parking".

Very easy, very helpful nice staff 🌞

Very long waiting time to collect the car:only one employee available for more than five pick-up on a night shift.

Friendly staff, new car (and a choice offered between different models), clear explanations for insurance, no hidden fee.
