AVIS Car Rental Services at Athens Airport

Athens International Airport (ATH), is also known as the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport in honour of the Cretan political figure and Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos. The airport is found approximately 20 km from the center of Athens, and since its passenger traffic totals over 24 million per annum, it is regarded as the 27th busiest airport in Europe. Upon arriving at the airport, passengers will find car rental companies available, such as Avis at Athens International Airport. The airport’s car hire companies all offer competitive rental rates, a wide selection of quality vehicles for hire and many other services useful to expedite the car rental process.

The current airport of Athens, which was built to replace the older Athens Ellinikon International Airport, consists of a main terminal building and satellite buildings. The satellite building of the airport is linked to the main terminal by an underground foot tunnel, that has moving walkways. A more recent development is also the new above-ground link that connects the main terminal to the mid-field satellite building, that is now used for all Schengen flight operations. The majority of the airport’s facilities are found in the main terminal, and here arriving passengers will also find the Athens International Airport car rental companies. They are on the arrivals level, and within easy walking distance of the baggage claim halls.

Avis is open at this airport from Monday to Sunday, twenty-four hours a day, and may allow their Avis Preferred members special benefits. The Avis Preferred membership is available to all renters, frequent and occasional, and has a free application. The applicant should just be 23 years of age or older, hold a valid drivers license and be the owner of a major credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard or Visa. The membership will not have any costs, and is not a contract of any form, but payment cards are required for car hire and the card’s details will need to be noted on the member’s profile. At most Avis rental locations, Avis Preferred members will enjoy priority counter service, will have their paperwork pre-prepared and their vehicles will be parked in the most convenient spaces. Certain locations are also equipped with a dedicated cabin in the car park, and allow their customers to bypass the rental counters as the keys will be waiting in the car.

A young driver fee will also be applicable to persons younger than 25 which could amount to 10 Euro per day per underage driver. The young driver surcharges will not add up to more than 100 Euro per rental per driver. The car categories available to younger drivers include Mini, Economy and Compact, with vehicles similar to the Citroen C1, Lancia Y 1.2, Citroen C3 1.4, Opel Astra 1.4 and Toyota Prius 1.5. These cars are all easy to drive, provided that you have experience with a manual transmission, and come with low rental rates. Only the Toyota Prius is available with an automatic transmission.

From Athens International Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but all other items of equipment will cost a few extra Euro.

Full-size vehicles from Avis are similar to the Mercedes A160 1.5 and Audi A4 Turbo 1.8, while Luxury and Premium cars may include the Mercedes C 180 1.8 and Mercedes E200 2.0. These cars are often chosen by business professionals who need a more elegant vehicle.

Travel into other countries may be permitted in your Avis vehicle, however, additional charges may be applicable to cross-border rentals. Avis one way hires are an option for renters who would prefer not to return their vehicle to Athens Airport. One way hires may also be permitted only for certain vehicle categories and could have extra charges. Further details will need to be acquired from Avis. Regardless of the return location, always bring the vehicle back in good time, and in good condition, although reasonable wear and tear is accepted.
