Renting a Car in Greece
One of the most convenient and fun ways to explore all that Greece and the Greek islands has to offer is by renting a car. You are able to travel all around Greece at your own pace, and make stops whenever you feel like it. There is much more freedom in being behind the wheel of your own vehicle, rather than having to rely on coaches or local transport to travel around.
Greece is a country that really needs to be explored to be fully appreciated. There are so many beautiful destinations and places that one can visit - from the archaeological sites such as Delphi and Olympia, to some wonderful coastline, mountainous regions and forests. You can even take a self-drive car tour of Athens and see all of the beautiful sights and attractions. However, it would probably be best to do this in non-rush hour traffic, as you wouldn’t really want to be sat in traffic for hours.
Whether you are travelling to Greece to simply unwind and relax on a beach, or to enjoy different activities or sports, then there are so many great destinations that you can head to. From the mountainous regions of Central Greece and beyond, to the beautiful coastline that the country is so famous Greece, there will be something for everyone to enjoy and experience.
There are many car hire companies operating all over Greece, and they can be found at airports, ports and city centers. All of the main Greek islands will have car rental services, apart from islands such as Hydra, where cars are prohibited, and maybe some of the smaller islands, where you could easily get around the island by foot, and not need any form of transport.
You will find that renting a car in Greece is a very affordable option for transport and there are many places that offer great deals, especially out of season. If you are planning on travelling around various Greek islands, you will find that it is probably cheaper to rent a car on each island, rather than rent one and travel with that on board the ferry boats as you hop from island to island.
If you are planning on visiting one of the popular destinations in Greece during the peak summer months of July and August, you would probably be best served by making a reservation in advance, so that you can guarantee the specific type of vehicle that you want to rent.
