Wherever you drive to in Athens, if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your auto is key.

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Athens. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Athens vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Greece you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Athens definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Athens.
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
