Renting a car in Greece – Tips and advices

- To be able to rent a car in Greece you should have a valid driving permit of any EU country or the International Driving Permit (IDP), have at least 23 years old and also have at least 2 years of driving experience.

- While driving in Greece you should keep a defensive driving, since many Greek drivers tend to be impatient and aggressive.

- On heavy traffic roads, you will experience passing in places where normally you wouldn’t, also on blind curves and mountain roads. 

- Keep your arms always in the car since a motorcycle can strike you.

- Unless you speak Greek or you bring with you a GRP, it will be quite impossible to find your destination. Signposts are sketchy at most; so better use a GPS to facilitate the navigation. 

- Like other southern Europe countries, a lot of people use motorcycles in Greece, also being as aggressive as car drivers. Be especially careful with them!
