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.

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.

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.
