Just over 20 miles from the airport, the capital is bursting with ancient history and culture. Hiring a car at the airport puts you within easy reach of this awe-inspiring city and means you can get to see what you want, when you want, in the comfort of your own vehicle.
Whether it’s a small car you’re after, or something for the whole family, we’ve got the vehicle for you.
The airport is easily accessible from Athens via the Attiki Odos highway.
Follow Attiki Odos E94 out of the city and take Exit 20.
Merge into Attiki Odos 62 and follow signs, which are written in both Greek and English, into the airport.
Car rental services and optional extras
Why not also take advantage of one or more of the following services and additional options?
Avis Preferred: Members of our Customer Loyalty Programme can take advantage of upgrades, free additional drivers, car hire vouchers and many other benefits.
Out-of-hours return: Flying home in the middle of the night? Not to worry, this Avis branch is open 24 hours a day, so you can return your vehicle whenever you need to.
Breakdown assistance: We hope you won’t need to use it, but if you do there’s a toll-free number included in your rental agreement or displayed in your vehicle for 24/7 emergency roadside assistance. If necessary, we’ll give you a replacement so you can get back to enjoying your trip as soon as possible.
Satellite navigation: Negotiating unfamiliar routes, especially on the “wrong” side of the road, can be a fraught business. A car rental with GPS navigation can take the hassle out of getting from A(cropolis) to B(each), leaving you free to enjoy the drive.
Snow chains: Remember, it’s not always hot and sunny in Greece. If you’re driving between November and March, particularly in the mountains, we recommend hiring some snow chains to take with you, just in case.
