Best places to visit in Greece

  • Santorini: Famous for its white architecture, beautiful beaches, and the popular villages of Fira and Oia, Santorini is a popular island for visitors to explore. Discover the Ancient Thera, where you can visit the ruins of a former mountaintop city.  
  • Thessaloniki: To discover some of the country’s most historic buildings, head to Thessaloniki, a port city that is known for its churches and Roman archeology. The White Tower is an impressive landmark in the middle of the city, while Aristotelous Square is a great place to go to a cafe.  

Summer in Greece

If you will be spending your summer in Greece, you won’t want to miss out on going to some of its beautiful islands, including Mykonos and Corfu. The summer weather can be hot, but you can cool off at one of the beaches. Consider booking a convertible for your car rental in Greece, as you can take advantage of the stunning weather and add GPS to help you find your way during your trip.

We booked a last-minute rental car with Sixt Rent a Car Paros and are satisfied with our experience with the company. The staff (especially the manager from Athens) was helpful and professional. The car itself was clean and reliable. Transportation to and from the location is complimentary.

They were very very nice, efficient, very informative, thorough, helpful, and went out of their way to give us recommendations on where to go sightseeing.

We rented an Audi A4 because that's all they had available when we walked in looking for a rental car. They gave us such a sweet deal on it that we did NOT have to pay 01 cent on any damage to our because it a fully insured, and we did hit a curb while parking and the car did have some damage. So we were very very happy with the results.

I DO HIGHLY recommend this car rental.

I’ve rented from Sixt Corfu a couple of times. The desk is inside the terminal building. The desk staff are friendly and helpful. You collect your car 100 metres from the terminal doors. No shuttle bus!!! Process is very simple and quick. The cars are in good condition and I would say the team are fair in recording the car’s condition at the start of the rental. I’ve only had a positive experience with Sixt. I’ll use them again

Very positive experience, all was good, nice service at the desk, we got a free upgrade to SUV since we had a lot of luggage, we had full coverage so Sixt just blocked 100EUR for fuel and it was returned the same day as we gave back the car.

Tigz V.

Brilliant service from the guys at Sixt rent a car. Including finding us a car a day early, because we made a mistake with our booking, and driving the vehicle in the torrential rain from the car park to a drier spot. Would definitely recommend. 5 stars.

Yannis A.

Great service, great personnel, great car!!

Staff extremely helpful both by car pickup and drop off. I picked up the car at night with my boyfriend and we didn’t see a massive scratch on the bottom of the car and neither did the Sixt employee, but when we went to hand it Over, it was very visible and the guy went inside to check if it was already there even though we didn’t tell him it wasn’t us because we couldn’t prove

Visiting from the US and had the best car rental experience - Stratos was extremely helpful even before I got to Paros, and arranged for us to be picked up at the port as soon as the ferry docked. Smooth process at the branch and very quick return. Highly recommend.
