When you hire a car in Athens through with us, you also have the option of car insurance provided by our partner Car Hire Insurance. This product provides great piece of mind and can be added in stage 3 of the car hire booking process. This covers you for all the rental car excess and extras such as keys and tyres.
You may of course feel it is not necessary. I have hired cars myself on certain occasions without using it. If you are a good driver and familiarize yourself with the road rules in Greece then you may feel that you can take your chances.
When you pick up your Athens rental car be sure to check that there is no damage on the hire car which has not been already recorded by the rental car agent. If you find something then bring it to the attention of staff.
Always be aware of what areas of Greece you are in when it comes to parking. Park in official car parks if possible. Put in your wing mirrors as an extra precaution in case it’s a tight fit.
Read up on speed limits in Greece and try stick to the best roads possible rather than using short cuts with bad roads where you may end up with a chip flying at your windscreen or worse.
Of course you can not account for other drivers so you can never be fully risk free. CarHireInsurance.ie offer a good product and is something certainly worth considering for your own piece of mind.
