Top tips for hiring a car in Greece

  • When you drive in Greece, you will need to know that you give way to traffic when entering a roundabout and that changing lanes at a junction is prohibited. You are also not allowed to overtake cars while on bends, at bottlenecks, on road bumps, and at pedestrian crossings.
  • If you need to park your rental car in Greece, you may only do so in designated spaces using the pay and display system. Parking spaces marked in blue are for short stay periods, and you can park in them for up to three hours at a time.
  • In Greece, child car seats are mandatory for children up to the age of four years old. If a child measures less than 1.35 m (4ft) and is between the ages of three and 11, then they must travel in an appropriate child seat. In addition, children younger than 10 are not allowed to travel in the front seat of a car. These laws apply to all traveling to and from the airport as well, so you may want to rent a car seat from your car hire agency, which will cost you around 7,95 € ($8.90) and up per day.
  • If you want to travel to the capital, Athens, or to the cities of Piraeus, Evzoni, and Thessaloniki, you can take the A1 highway. If you fancy a road trip from Athens to Chalcis, take the A11 and drive for 48 mi. To discover northern Greece, including the Bulgarian and Turkish borders, you should take the A2 road.
