A road trip is calling your name, and Piraeus is an awesome base to kick-start your journey. Located 5 miles from downtown, the first thing you ought to pick up is the key to one of our impressive rental cars. A full-size car will bring you around Athens in comfort and safety — or you might want to venture off the beaten track and explore lesser-known areas with a robust four-wheel drive. If you want to effortlessly zip around the city, we'd recommend an economy car. They might not be as roomy, but they'll be wonderful at slipping into those tiny parking spaces.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a broad range of both economy and high-end rental vehicles in Piraeus. What you end up opting for depends on how much you want to spend and what you're planning to do. Prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not grab a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps an upmarket mid-sized sedan? Alternatively, if you're just after a set of wheels to get you around town at the cheapest price possible, go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
