Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Athens Avis rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Athens?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Athens's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Athens is 19. Make sure to review Avis's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Athens?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Athens. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and be 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 Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Greece?
In Greece you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Athens. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Athens. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Avis.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Athens?
Athens certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Athens.
Does Athens Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
