Rent a Car at the Athens Airport and discover Athens

For large families or groups of friends, Sixt offers SUVs and minivans to make your trip comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone and their luggage. For couples on a romantic holiday, Sixt offers luxury rentals and fun convertible sports cars, like the BMW Roadster, to tour Athens and the curvy, mountainous roads of Greece in style. If you are looking for off-road adventure, Sixt's Jeep Liberty or Ford Explorer are ideal for visiting Greece's more remote and isolated ancient ruins.After arriving at the Athens Airport, you will want to start your vacation is soon as possible since Athens contains a wealth of attractions that cannot be seen in just a few hours. With a rental car, you can immediately head into the city without waiting for public transportation or a taxi, check in to your hotel and start your adventure. To get in visits to the National Art Galley, the Technopolis, Acropolis and all of the other landmarks and museums of Athens, you need your own private transportation. Set your own schedule and see the attractions you came to Athens for, without depending on pre-arranged tours that limit you to the most popular venues.

I like Sixt, I rent a lot from them, and am a Sixt platinum card holder. And I would probably use this branch again. But be aware that this isn't like a Sixt branch in Western Europe. Firstly, the Audi I rented was clean and in good condition - but old (64000 km) and didn't, for example, have a USB port to charge a phone. Secondly, the check in process is slow, despite me having booked via the app. They still require lots of paperwork which they have to photocopy and you need to sign. It also took them thirty minutes to find a working credit card terminal to take my deposit. Finally, you get a very hard sell about taking out full insurance. You're told how bad Greek drivers are, how parked cars are often scratched etc etc. In the end, I took out fully comp insurance for everything not because I thought I would do anything to the car (I didn't) but because I felt I didn't trust the branch to not make damage up.


So, my advice would be to take out fully comp insurance, just factor that into the price even if you don't need it, and pay everything in advance to reduce the time taken at the counter. And bring a spare charge pack for your phone!

Very helpful and understanding staff despite the pressure and the crowd speciallyduring the peak seasons.., I had a rental car last August and I can say it was good experience and their prices are very reasonable.... it may take a little longer to drop the car during rush hour however the didn't charge me extra when I told them I was waiting for a while.... the employee who took the car was so helpful and fast during the inspection and sorting out the paper work once I told him I'm in a hurry to catch my flight , so based on my personal experience they are recommended.
