How old do you have to be to rent a car in Kos?

Normally, to rent a car in Kos you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read the terms to figure out any additional fees will be before you rent your car.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Kos?

When cruising through Kos or the rest of Greece, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance with the rental agency.

Many major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

You will need to find a gas station close to your car rental supplier
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullYou'll have a full tank when you get your car. Use as much gas as you want and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental dealer. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling costYou only need to replace the fuel you used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for fuel you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only be charged refueling fees if you don't fill up the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Many suppliers provide a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehandYou won't need to find a petrol station near your rental drop-off locationYou might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou won't have a full tank when you collect your vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you bring the car backYou refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump pricesYou'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

Most suppliers provide you a full tank policy. We encourage bringing your car back filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you drive off

Be sure you check a few items before you leave the rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Look over the vehicle and make certain there is no damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
