KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Thessaloniki

  • Make the most out of your trip to the ancient city of Thessaloniki and access archaeological sites like the Triumphal Arch of Galerius, the Galerius Maximianus Palace, or some of the Byzantine constructions conveniently with a hire car. With a car, travelers can also explore adjoining areas like Halkidiki and the scenic beaches or the Edessa Waterfall, both of which are a bit over one hour and 15 minutes of driving away.
  • Get your hire car directly at Thessaloniki airport and be in the city center in under half an hour. Cars can be rented at the service desks located at the terminals and companies like Sixt, Europcar, and Hertz offer their vehicles for travelers to enjoy during their trip to Thessaloniki. For travelers arriving at Thessaloniki Port, there are car hire facilities there, too, and drivers can take the 26is Oktovriou to be in the heart of the city in less than 10 minutes.
  • Thessaloniki is well connected, as some of the bigger highways meet in the city and lead to the Inner Ring Road, which goes directly into the city. However, the streets are not always in a good condition and in Greece, adhering to the rules can be seen as a weakness, so driving defensively and extra carefully is a good idea. Changing lanes can also be challenging, as it is sometimes not clear where the two lanes are, so observing where the rest of the cars divide can be helpful.
  • During morning and evening rush hours, the streets in Thessaloniki can clog up. Try to avoid driving between 9-10 am during mornings and 6-7 pm in the evenings, as workers go in and out of the city. Generally, congestion is not very bad in Thessaloniki and usually traffic is pretty fluid, so exploring the city and surroundings should not cost too much extra time.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Thessaloniki for $60 or less
  • Book your car hire in Thessaloniki at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Thessaloniki 
juanJuly 2023
Driving around Thessaloniki is very is and straight forward. Like all countries, always stick to the middle or right lane and only use the far left lane for passing or driving fast. Carry cash for the tolls as well (very cheap tolls)
Verified travelerMay 2023
No issues. Lots of tolls driving south.

FAQs about hiring a car in Thessaloniki

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Thessaloniki?

    As parking can be difficult in the city, opting for a compact car can be advantageous. For families who need a little extra space, a minivan is a spacious yet somewhat compact option. As the roads can be bumpy and riddled with potholes in Greece, make sure the insurance covers every scratch and document whether the car had any such scratches beforehand.

  • What’s the speed limit in Thessaloniki?

    All speed regulations are given in kilometers per hour in Greece, but, as the speedometer in the hire car is also set in km/h, that should be not a problem -- even for travelers not used to the metric system. Inside the city and residential areas, unless otherwise indicated, 50 km/h (31 mph) are permitted, 90 km/h (55 mph) on country roads and up to 130 km/h (80 mph) on highways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Thessaloniki?

    Parking in Thessaloniki can be a challenge, so parking in a paid parking lot and taking public transport into the city is likely a better option.

I went for the economy option, and that’s what I got. It wasn’t a luxurious ride, but it got me where I needed to go, and that was just fine. Most importantly, the process was east and they didn’t pull any nasty surprises on me. I would use them again.

Experience was great. Easy pickup and accommodating drop off for a little extra but no problems at all. Customer service was great as well. Rental car office is located 2 minutes down the road from the airport. Only thing would be better instructions for where the pickup shuttle is when outside the airport.

The person that gave me the car told the me fuel was full. I took my friends and family o the beach but the car run out of gas as soon as we got out of the city. The gas tank was empty. I refueled it to the maximum so it would not happen again and they did not pay me back the difference... It is outrageous
