4.0 Okay15 Sep. 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpfulCons: I booked automatic car but got a manual car with different price when I went to pick up my car so I did not rent it
8.0 Excellent8 Jan. 2020
Pros: Staff helpfulCons: Include Excess/Loss Damage waiver in cost.
10.0 Excellent10 Oct. 2019
Pros: Staff very friendly, car in great condition, check in was easy
2.0 Mediocre10 Oct. 2019
Cons: Two big surprises. First, I have been traveling to Europe for years and renting cars. This is the first time I was told I must have an international drivers license. Something I could have easily addressed if the website had ANY indication it was required. Second, Sixt tells you on the website that insurance is covered, but when you arrive, you learn that comprehensive insurance costs more than the car rental. I won't be back.
2.0 Mediocre9 Oct. 2019
Cons: If they rented me a car. They would not rent a car to me by telling its Greek law to have international drivers Licence. Went to Avis next door and was rented a car. But because I needed right away it was triple the price . Will never rent fro sixty again. Horrible
2.0 Mediocre1 Oct. 2019
Cons: They refused to rent the vehicle to me although I had prepaid for the rental. Apparently they require an international drivers license which was not disclosed to me when I made the reservation. I have been renting vehicles at Athens and this is by far the worst experience EVER!!!
7.2 Good10 Sep. 2019
Pros: The pickup was great, easy and fast. The car was in great condition and I had a wonderful experience until the dropoff.Cons: The dropoff was absolutely horrid. Upon arrival at the Athens airport, I was informed by a member another car rental company that the Sixt employee had "left to pick up his laundry" and would be back in a few minutes. Upon return, the employee was unapologetic and showed no remorse for the delay.
2.0 Mediocre10 Sep. 2019
Cons: Didn’t get the type of vehicle I requested
7.6 Good3 Sep. 2019
Cons: They have charged me 2 bonds when it should of been one and now they say there is no record of it but it has come out of my credit card
2.0 Mediocre1 Sep. 2019
Cons: Sixt requires you to have an international driver's license if coming from outside EU. Nowhere in the rental confirmation that is mentioned. Kayak and Sixt can both tell where you are coming from when making a reservation. Sixt canceled booking on arrival. Weak customer care.

3.6 Mediocre22 Aug. 2018
I reserved a 7 seater and after confirmation was given a 9 seaterPros: Enterprise rep at the airport was informed and quick. Simply pulled out of the airport lot with no need to stop for paperwork etc.Cons: I clearly reserved a 7 seater and was given a 9 seater and then told that was all they had. The van was too big for us. Quite frustrated that no one took responsibility for that error. The Enterprise rep on the phone was not at all interested in helpinf.
9.6 Excellent21 Jul. 2018
on airport economy rentalPros: car was ready on arrival. easy to locate, and prior damage was already noted.Cons: 1. windows could have been cleaner. 2. signage for return location was poor. Drove past it and luckily this was very early in the morning so i drove in the open exit to avoid backing up or circling the airport again which would have put us in a time bind.
6.0 Good1 Aug. 2017
Pros: Vans have reasonably strong engines.Cons: They didn't tell us that we needed to acquire and fill ADD BLUE to the diesel engines of the vans. The vans were fairly new but the ADD BLUE lights came on immediately after leaving the airport and much concern about what was needed, etc.
10.0 Excellent10 Feb. 2017
Great rental experiencePros: Everything went super smoothly. The office provided me with a USB car adapter since I needed one, and gave me a free upgrade due to availability
10.0 Excellent14 Jan. 2017

Pros: We picked up the car at midnight on a weekday. Great attitude by the counter staff, provided me with all the options for the class I selected, and offered us bottled water when we told them we have a long drive ahead of us. Also, the car was in great shape despite the high mileage (high mileage is typical for most car rentals in Greece so I was not surprised). Overall, a great experience. I will rent again from Budget in ATH.Cons: The walk from the terminal to the rental car area out in the cold. Nothing to do with Budget. Also, the drop off signs at the airport need improvement; it is very easy to miss them.

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staffCons: Car accelerated slowly
2.0 Mediocre4 Sep. 2017
Horrible experienceCons: I rented a car two days -- it was supposed to be ready at 9am and when I showed up at 2pm to pick it up I had to wait 45 min until I made other plans and had to cancel the rental with Avis. 10 people working in that office and being told every 5 minutes "it's coming" - it is just unacceptable! Never again.
2.0 Mediocre9 Jul. 2017
Pros: Kayak follow up on customer satisfactionCons: I reserved a car which can hold specific number of passengers (8) Kayak reservation was clearly stated number of passengers 8 but Avis rep said Kayak made a mistake and I need to pay an additional$99 euros for this 4 day rental over and above the agreement. Even if there is discrepancy Avis should pick this up with Kayak and not put a gun on customer's head when he/she has no other choice. Additionally car has multiple scratches and dents, over all renting a car in 3rd. World countries is always risky and unpredictable.
5.2 Okay23 Jun. 2017
Given faulty gpsPros: We were given a new car with a broken cigarette lighter port. As a consequence about 1/2 hour into our trip the gps lost power and we spent 3 hours lost in the suberbs of Athens lost
8.0 Excellent28 Nov. 2016
Great customer service, but should have sprung forPros: The customer service was excellent, and they even give you free coffee from a fancy Illy machine while you wait.Cons: The wait while they pulled up the car was a little long (about 15 minutes). The office on Siggrou is a little tricky to access since you have to drive up onto the sidewalk and then out into oncoming traffic. The car was pretty touchy and it would stick between gears, but I suppose that is what I get for renting the cheapest option.

Cons: Checking in and checking out was fast and no problem
6.4 Good15 Jun. 2019

4.8 Okay25 Jul. 2017
The car was terribke.bad bad driving expiriencePros: The stuff eas very nice.we didnr wait much for the cerviseCons: We ordered passat so we expected to get a similiar car.comfort for a family to drive and to be in. The car that we got was not comfortable at all.Additionaly there was no place for c.d. When we got the car we told the stuff that we are not satisfied with the car.he told us that we will be surprised from the quallity. But at the natter of fact we suffered from the driving in the car..after few days we drive especiallt to KALAMATA to Herts office to change to another kind of car and there was no family car avalable for us.

A bad place to rent a carPros: NothingCons: The car was in a bad shape and maintained very poor. They had to replace the car three times till they found a car that could go. There were "hidden costs" that we had to pay in the agency and it was even more expensive than the leading rental agency.

Top tips for hiring a car in Athens

  • Need to pick up a hire car after landing in Athens? Fortunately for visitors, the hire car counters are right within the main terminal building. Simply follow the signs to the hire car center located on the arrivals level of the main terminal, after baggage claim.
  • Drivers in Athens should be careful of pedestrians crossing the street at random times, as jaywalking is extremely common in the city, especially on the smaller streets in the downtown area.
  • Rush hour in any major city can be an inconvenience and, unfortunately, Athens is no exception. Morning rush hour typically lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour lasts from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. However, on a positive note, traffic is not much of a problem outside of Athens’ downtown core. So, if you plan on checking out the nearby sites, then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem as long as you avoid the tourist buses.
  • Looking forward to exploring Athens? Well, renting a car is definitely one of the best ways to get around. For instance, if you want to go from the Acropolis and Parthenon to a seaside stroll by the Bay of Zea, you could spend an hour on public transport, or you could drive there in twenty minutes. If you plan on visiting the countryside, there simply is no better way than at your own pace in your own vehicle.

  • Finding an ideal streetside parking spot in Athens is a bit of a Sisyphean task. Double parking is the norm and the roads are cramped and full of cars duking it out for any available space. So save yourself the hassle and stick to parking garages. They are by far the best option because you can simply park and then hop on public transport to get to your final destination. Parking garages are particularly recommended for those who plan on visiting the city center, as traffic jams are the norm.
