Renting a car from the port as soon as you arrive at your destination offers many benefits. First of all you can avoid crowded public transportation and having to switch trains and busses to get where you want to go. Taxi rides can be time efficient but tariffs from the port can be overly expensive, especially in the bigger Greek cities. Booking a car rental in advance can save you time and money, not to mention minimize the risk of Covid-19. Rental cars are cleaned and disinfected between rentals for your protection and allow you to start your trip stress free.

Choose your car: The majority of rental companies will offer you a wide selection of vehicles (such as SUVs, minivans, economy or even luxury cars), to meet your needs, budget and standards. Additional services: Most of the rental companies will offer you additional services (i.e. extra equipment, door to door delivery, transfers, extra coverage etc.) in order to make your car rental experience even better. Greener: Hiring a vehicle can be better for the environment as many newer models have reduced CO2 emissions, and many rental companies now offer low emission cars to customers.
Absolutely. Unless you are fully acquainted with the routes you are planning to take, adding a GPS system to your rental is highly recommended.
