Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Athens Sixt car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Athens?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Athens?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Athens is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Sixt's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Athens?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Athens. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Athens vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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 from Sixt. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Athens. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Athens. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Athens?
Athens definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in Athens?
Sixt usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
