Car Rental Mini Guide for Athens

You can  fly into the Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport and collect your pre booked rental car, the airport has many connections with the Greek Islands and other domestic flights to places such as Thessaloniki.  Athens is difficult to negotiate unless you have a hire car. Some of the sights are on such steep rises, you will really struggle without transportation.

Athens International is an extremely modern and efficient airport complete with a useful tourist information office which is a good port of call before you pick up your Rhino rental car. A good starting point for your adventure is to Piraeus, the harbour of Athens. From there you can take a ferry to islands such as Rhodes and Mykonos.

If you are departing from Eleftherios Venizelos there are flights to destinations all over the world including Europe, Africa, America and the Middle East.
