Good to know when you’re visiting Athens

What to do while in Athens

If you enjoy history and architecture, you surely won’t want to miss out on visiting the famous Acropolis of Athens during your stay in the city. You can also learn more about the sight by heading to the Acropolis Museum that contains a variety of historical artifacts. Consider treating yourself to a day trip by going to the city of Delphi, which can be reached by car in around 2 hours.  

Summer in Athens

Athens is known for having particularly beautiful, albeit hot, weather during the summer, so consider heading to some of the many outdoor attractions in the city, like the iconic Parthenon that dates to 447 BC. There is also the scenic Temple of Olympian Zeus, which can be found in the city center and was constructed in the 6th century BC.

Great experience overall.

We rented an Opel Corsa for two days in the Athens office.

The people in the office were super nice and quite fast.

We had to make a 100 euro deposit and received it back within two days.

Honestly, the best experience that I have had renting a car.

Really good service experience. Very accommodating and helpful.

The car was in a very good condition. Again next time in Athens.

I went to Greece last week with 3 children and we rent a BMW X1. Very happy with client servicing: check in was ok at airport but people make a strong case to add insurance policies, adding significant amounts so frankly, for me, this is a bit negative as they try to frighten you so that you take insurance but this is useless in my view (your credit card insures you in most of the cases) . The only snag is how to find the parking when you need to bring back the car, this is the case for all rental companies but it's not easy with no indication at all (except on the right just after motorway entrance), a plan should be a good idea for drivers as if you have a plane, better to schedule 30 minutes to find the parking...

And no surprise on the bill.

Great staff, great service.

What a company, mrs. Zafiria was amazing with everything, can not ask for anything more, 10 stars from me.

January, the manager, was lovely in distress. She helped me get thru the busy line and was very accommodating. The systems were lagging and she did everything she could to make everyone at ease.
