Review of Nikolaos Paximadakis about our office at Athens Airport Powered by Google™
Excellent service and, importantly, vehicles in great condition are what set them apart. They also provide round-the-clock service—a significant advantage. I've had a disappointing experience with another rental service due to a flight delay that resulted in my arrival outside of their operating hours. My only concern is the noticeable price difference when booking directly through their website compared to using travel agents. Logically, one would anticipate lower prices for direct bookings. The staff explained that booking through their site includes special insurance. However, this explanation is partially satisfying. It would seem more logical to offer both insured and uninsured rates directly on their website. Regardless, this company stands out as one of the finest, if not the absolute best, choice for car rentals in Athens.

These folks were awesome! Booked with a great rate, no hassle pick up and drop off, friendly and knowledgeable staff, shuttle from the airport, they hit all the peaks. Greece was a wonderful experience, and this company set us up and closed us out in the best fashion! Would definitely rent here again, and recommend them highly!
Review of Varun Mathur about our office at Athens Airport Powered by Google™
I hired the car online at very reasonable price & it was easy to make the reservations , only issue I had was to find them at the airport as the guy who met us was not very professional and same guy drove us back to the airport as he was not interested in the job . Once I arrived at the reception the lady who served was amazing and 100% brilliant customer service from her and very helpful in telling where to go and places to visit brilliant service she is an asset to the company. The insurance was 27 € per day and not to worry about anything . The car was clean and they refunded our fuel deposit of 152€ when I returned the car in the same condition. Will definitely use the services again.
Review of John Garefalakis about our office at Athens Airport Powered by Google™
Great experience once more. First time was in Chania (Crete) which to be honest they were very helpful, attentive and delivered the right car from the category I chose from. I mention this cause previous experiences from different rental companies was not what expected. On top of that I made a foolish thing by booking different dates from the ones I had as a flight. I reached the company's HQ and to be honest (I'm sorry for the lady I can't recall her name cause it's worth mentioning) she ensured me that she will short it out either with a coupon for a future usage or a 'FULLY' refundable amount in case I have changed my mind. Either way is definitely something to mention. I kept the coupon in that case and just proceeded with the correct dates. I mean, thank you for the customer service and the overall experience.
Review of Nikolaos Nikolaou about our office at Athens Airport Powered by Google™
Great experience! We had a smooth pickup from the airport for our 4 member family. At the office the check-in was also quite fast. No hidden costs and we even got an upgrade for a great Renault Arkana which made our driving experience in Athens and Peloponnese unforgettable... Totally recommended. :)

What to see, do, and visit in Athens and its surroundings with your rental car.
The Athens airport, whose official name is Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, is located 34 kilometers from the center of the capital. Athens is connected by air with major European cities such as Rome, Milan, Madrid and Barcelona and has connections to other parts of the country such as Heraklion, Rhodes, Thessaloniki, Corfu and Kos.
Before you visit Athens it is most convenient to find out about the transportation options; in view of the road network and road accesses, driving your own car seems the best option. Choosing a car hire at the Athens airport will allow you to get to the city center in half hour, driving through Attiki Odos/A6/E94 and A/D PAThE A1/E75, exiting from the latter through the Peristeri exit.
Car hire in Athens
Driving on this journey allows us to take in what of ancient Greece is preserved in Athens, one of the most important cities in history. We will see monuments and beauties of ancient civilizations, and traveling by car will allow us to move freely so as not to miss any of its charming corners.
What to see in Athens
The Acropolis is undoubtedly the most iconic and indispensable place in Athens. Located at the top of the hill, there are buildings as relevant as the Temple of Athena, the Erechtheion and, of course, the Parthenon. We also have the Acropolis Museum and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, 500 meters away.
Other places to visit are the Roman Agora and the Ancient Agora. The first constituted a power center of the Roman Empire; the second was at the time a place where commercial and social activity brought citizens together.
Highly recommended are also the neighborhoods of Monastikiri, Psiri (the hip neighborhood) and Plaka, the oldest in Athens at the feet of the Acropolis. All of them will help us to tune into the life of the city.
The 4 hills of Athens, the four cardinal points to visit:
- Philopappos or formerly hill of the Muses, with the monument of the same name, is the highest hill of Athens, with a good view of the acropolis, where you can get a good view of the city.
- Ares or Areopagus Rock, from here you can contemplate the Olympic stadium, the Sintagma and Omonia squares, the ancient agora or the temple of Zeus.
- Mount Lycabettus allows you to enjoy the views of the port of Piraeus and the Acropolis.
- Acropolis, the most iconic highlight of the city, gives you a 360Âº panorama of Athens.
Driving route around Athens and surroundings
Through the cities of Corinth, Mycenae and Epidaurus you can drive on a beautiful one-day route. Following the A75 motorway heading north, you will reach Corinto in less than an hour, whose canal is a great work of engineering. Then, along the Peloponnesian Peninsula we will arrive in about 31 kilometers to Mycenae, you can enjoy its acropolis and the magnificent tomb of King Agamemnon. About 35 kilometers further by car we find Epidaurus, whose main attraction is a theater of the 4th century BC.
The two most important dishes are the moussaka, a type of lasagna made with eggplant, and the gyros, pita bread with roasted meat, onion, tomato and sauce. On the other hand, one of the most popular desserts that we recommend trying is the bougatsa cake, made of filo pastry and filled with cheese, custard or meat.
