Review of Stefan about our office at Thessaloniki Airport Powered by Google™
I checked the reviews here after I booked a rental car with them, which made me doubt that decision. I am happy that I didn't cancel it, because everything went very smoothly and we were more then happy with them. We were picked up from the airport by a shuttle bus driver who brought us to the rent-a-car building where we were welcomed by two desk clerks, one of which took my info, asked me ONCE if I wanted an additional insurance, which I kindly declined and she gave me the key to a brand new Peugeot 3008 without a single scratch on it. All of them were friendly and accommodating and spoke very good English. We waited around 20 minutes to return the car, as there were a lot of us customers at the same time, but the check itself was very quick and I received the refund of the deposit and the reservation for the gas money the same day. 5/5, would definitely recommend and use their service again

Alex, Maria and the lady who drove the shuttle are a great face for the company. The Peugeot 3008 SUV was immaculately clean, great car to drive. Shuttle was on time, check in and out was painless and fast. I'll use this company again

The best car rental company I've been to. Great employees. Fast pick-up and nice service without charging anything extra as other companies do. Just the normal price that you booked the car for. The company is a 3Minute ride from the airport which was easy as the pick you up. Thank you so much. That was great

What to see, do, and visit in Thessaloniki and its surroundings with your rental car.
South of the city of Thessaloniki is the Thessaloniki Airport (SKG), also known as the International Airport of Macedonia. It was opened in 1930 and today is one of the most important airports in Greece, since it has connections with cities such as Athens, Rhodes, Corfu, Samos or Lemnos, among others. In addition, from this airport there are also flights to different cities in Italy and Spain such as Milan, Girona, Rome, Naples. To get from the airport to the city of Thessaloniki you can use public transport or rent a car at the Thessaloniki-Macedonia airport and get a vehicle that allows you to reach the city in approximately 25 minutes.
Car hire in Thessaloniki
Car hire in Thessaloniki is the most recommended option to tour the capital of the Macedonia region with total autonomy and freedom, without depending on bus schedules and routes. Plan a personalized route to explore the city at your leisure and visit some of the most representative places in the city, such as the Aristotle Square, the Nikis promenade, the Kapani market, the Arch of Galerius, the White Tower or the Church of Saint Sophia, among others.
Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city, is full of culture, history and art, where you can enjoy beautiful views and monuments that will leave you speechless.
What to see in Thessaloniki
- Church of Saint Sophia: Built in the 8th century, it is one of the oldest churches in the city and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the thirteenth century it became a cathedral, later it was a mosque for five centuries and is now a Greek Orthodox church. The entrance to the church is free of charge and the building is a model example of Byzantine architecture.
- Rotonda of Galerius: Also declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO , this Byzantine church is believed to have been originally a temple dedicated to the god Zeus or a funerary site for Emperor Galerius. Its interior is very beautiful, full of mosaics and decorated with marble. Nearby, we find the Arch of Galerius, known as Kamara.
- Waterfront (Nikis): Nikis Avenue is a seaport that is worth strolling and relaxing, the views are wonderful. In addition, the promenade is decorated with many sculptures and monuments that do not go unnoticed. It is a part of the city full of life and very active, especially at sunset, which is also when you can admire the best views.
- White Tower: It is a defensive tower facing the sea, it is also known as Lefkos Pyrgos. It is one of the main monuments of the city and many see it as the symbol of Thessaloniki.
- Panaghia Chalkeon: Like the two churches mentioned above, it was declared a World Heritage Site and was converted into a mosque, although later it became an Orthodox church.
