4.0 OkaySep 15 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 ExcellentJan 8 2020
Pros: Staff helpfulCons: Include Excess/Loss Damage waiver in cost.
10.0 ExcellentOct 10 2019
Pros: Staff very friendly, car in great condition, check in was easy
2.0 MediocreOct 10 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 MediocreOct 9 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 MediocreOct 1 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 GoodSep 10 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 MediocreSep 10 2019
Cons: Didn’t get the type of vehicle I requested
7.6 GoodSep 3 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 MediocreSep 1 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.

Pros: Got upgraded, drop off was easy. Friendly staff.Cons: When we arrived the baby seat wasn’t installed and we needed to walk around to find one and install it in the car. Took almost an hour.

3.6 MediocreAug 22 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 ExcellentJul 21 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 GoodAug 1 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 ExcellentFeb 10 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

scam, rip off and bad carCons: The car made terrible noises from the second day we had it and staff were uninterested and said is was unlikely as quite new. I received a parking ticket on the street, paid it, but the police took the number plates as they do in Greece. Budget were completely unhelpful in trying to get them back and said they could take a month - but locals and hotel said all it requires is someone to collect from central police station. They are now charging me triple the rental rate, keeping the contract open, not answering the phone, not contacting me and not collecting the number plates. Total scam and dishonest.
9.6 ExcellentAug 16 2017

10.0 ExcellentMay 7 2018
Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staffCons: Car accelerated slowly
2.0 MediocreSep 4 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 MediocreJul 9 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 OkayJun 23 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 ExcellentNov 28 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.

10.0 ExcellentOct 9 2019
Cons: Checking in and checking out was fast and no problem
6.4 GoodJun 15 2019
Cons: The staff at both pickup and drop of location are very good. The problem we have is that the air conditioning is not working and we have spend long time to drive it back to get the car replaced.
2.0 MediocreJul 23 2018
Cons: I didn’t get a car cause reservation was not confirmed by Hertz
4.8 OkayJul 25 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.
2.0 MediocreAug 19 2016
Pros: Ok car.Cons: Very poor customer service. I received my car 30 min late and was told that it's acceptable for car to be LATE 3 HOURS. Unbelievable that businesses like this exist. Got charged 40 euros for the car have 7/8 tank full NOT full. Thanks for the value....

Payless sucksPros: It was kinda cheapCons: Booked a ford mondeo got an old run down skoda fabia
9.2 ExcellentMay 12 2017
Cons: Payless was also officed with Budget and Avis at the airport, but there was no signage and nothing in my paperwork that indicated that. I ended up having to call the number given while standing literally in front of the counter.

2.0 MediocreJun 11 2021
Pros: There was hardly anything to like at Greenmotion.Cons: The cars are in terrible state: not clean, AC making a was very loud noise (making it hard to use), and malfunctioning light were on on the dashboard when we picked up the car. Due to all these problems, we were delayed by one hour and a half trying to change the car, only to find out that there are no cars without a problem. Poor costumer service, too. We were quite shocked—not sure it is safe to drive cars that are not maintained like the Green Motion ones.
2.0 MediocreMay 19 2020
Cons: They were terrible at communicating, gave false information and would not respond to questions or inquiries. Then, I tried to cancel and they were impossible to work with.

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 renting a car in Athens

  • Need to pick up a rental car after landing in Athens? Fortunately for visitors, the rental car counters are right within the main terminal building. Simply follow the signs to the rental 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.

  • Speed limits, unless otherwise specified, are 50 km/h (31 mph) on residential roads and in cities, 90 km/h (56 mph) on country roads, and 110 - 130 km/h (68 - 81 mph) on highways.

  • Unfortunately for drivers, average gas prices in Athens, like in many European cities, are quite high. On average, drivers can expect to pay about €1.62 ($1.84) per liter of gas in Athens. In gallons, that means you will be paying roughly €6.12 ($6.95) per gallon.

  • 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.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
