Athens Car Rental Reviews

Take to the mountains surrounding Loutraki and visit remote places that tourists seldom see. Easy drive to lake Vouliagmeni, Corinth, Athens. Be careful when driving into city of Athens, roads are very narrow and heavy traffic.

it was a very good trip and renting a car made access to many places, possible, any time of the day.i definitely recommend it.though you have to be extra careful with the way they drive.

If you're going to vacation on a Greek island, as we do, consider using Discover and renting from Avance or another car rental company for pickup at the airport. Yes, it costs extra to take the car on the ferry boat to your island or islands, but you'll save over the often higher rental charges from rental companies on the islands.

Driving in downtown athens was a little tricky as the some roads were quite narrow. But would definitely recommend driving up north to Meteora instead of taking the train.

Athens was beautiful and the best way to see it is via car. The beautiful coast and city is all nearby and day time activities can be done with the ease of renting a car.

If you know the Greeks’ mentality of driving , then could you adapt in the flow of traffic.

Try to avoid driving in Athens. Be prepared for narrow, rough, steep roads but always take the time to visit the remote spots, they are definitely worth it.
