BUDGET Car Rental Services at Athens Airport

Athens International Airport serves the famous city of Athens in Greece, and is a hub for several airline companies, such as Olympic Air. This airport is quite new, as it has recently replaced the activities of Athens Ellinikon International Airport, which is now closed. The new airport of Athens has the IATA code of ATH, and is also named after a Prime Minister of the country, Eleftherios Venizelos. The airport is very modern, with all facilities that are required by its passengers, and there are several options for ground transport available. These options include a rented car from a variety of companies such as Budget at Athens International Airport, who are famous around the world for their very low car rental rates.

The airport of Athens consists of several buildings, of which one is the main terminal housing the majority of airport facilities, such as all the check-in counters. The satellite terminals are linked to this main building by an underground tunnel and an above-ground walkway, which is one of the latest developments of the airport. The above-ground walkway leads to the terminal from where all Schengen flights are handled. There are also many future plans to expand the airport’s capacity, and by the time they are complete, the airport should handle up to fifty million per annum. Currently, its passenger traffic stands at around 24 million per annum. The facilities in the main building include the car rental counters of Budget and several other car hire companies. They are on the arrivals level, and are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Budget also has no exception hours, which means that they are even available on public holidays.

Budget’s customers at Athens International Airport have access to many services, including the Fastbreak rental services. Fastbreak is Budget’s frequent renter program that is recommended for anyone who is fond of this car rental company. Fastbreak customers enjoy quicker reservations, rentals and returns, and may even receive discounted car rental rates. The membership for Fastbreak is free of charge, and available to persons who have hired a car from any Budget location three or more times. Three rental contracts may be required as proof when applying for the service. Renters who do not belong to Fastbreak will still receive excellent service from Budget, and will still enjoy some of the lowest available car rental rates.

Customers have various choices from Budget. They can request the use of satellite navigation systems or child seats, and persons with a lower limb disability can even hire Budget’s hand control equipment, which is free of charge from the rental location of Athens International Airport. Hand controls, as well as all other items of additional equipment required, are recommended to be reserved in advance. The majority of the other Athens International Airport car hire companies hire these items as well, but their prices may differ.

It is very important to understand the terms and conditions of renting a vehicle, however, from Budget they are quite simple and straight forward. The primary renter, and all additional drivers should meet the same requirements, which include having a valid drivers license and major payment card, and being at least 21 years of age. Local and international driving licenses may be accepted, and the cards of American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard/Eurocard/Access and Visa may be used. Renters may also use a Budget Charge Card at this location. Insurance such as Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection is recommended, and may be an additional cost to the rental agreement, and cross border traffic is not allowed. Budget one way hires, however, are possible to arrange, and allow the vehicle to be returned to a different rental location, should the customer not be returning to Athens Airport. One way hires may incur extra charges, but could be more convenient for certain travel itineraries.

All the Athens International Airport car rental companies will charge higher rates when the customer/driver is under the age of 25, and younger drivers may also not hire vehicles from all categories. The car groups of A, B and C have a minimum age requirement of 23. Customers should also keep in mind that their driving licenses should have been held for a minimum of one year prior to the rental date. This location also has a maximum age limitation of 75.

A large selection of cars are available from Budget. They could be smaller models, such as the Chevy Matiz, Fiat Panda, Opel Corsa 1.2, Citroen C3 or Hyundai Accent 1.3, or they could be larger vehicle models, similar to the Hyundai Matrix and Toyota Corolla 1.6. These cars can usually seat five passengers quite comfortably, and have adequate room for luggage. Passenger Vans can also be hired from Budget, at reasonable rental rates, and they are often similar to the VW Caddy Van, which is in the Standard Passenger Van Category, and to the VW Transporter, in the Full-size Passenger Van category. Many of Budget’s vehicles come with air conditioning, air bags and other attractive features.
