EUROPCAR Car Rental Services at Athens Airport

Athens International Airport is nearby to the city of Athens, in Greece, and is an important airport serving approximately 24 million passengers per annum. It’s passenger numbers are also expected to increase considerably in the years to come. The airport is recognised as ATH (its IATA code) and as the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, a name in honour of a Greek Prime Minister. Although arriving passengers can take a bus or train into the city, rented cars are often chosen, as they are a more private and convenient form of transport. Europcar Athens International Airport is one of the popular car hire companies available, and always provides their customers with the most competitive car rental rates available.

The airport’s car rental companies are found on the arrivals level of the main terminal building, just nearby to the baggage claim area. They are often open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, but it is best to confirm the hours of operation presented by your chosen car hire company. Those that are not open all day may offer out-of-office hour collections and returns, possibly with extra charges. The facilities of the airport are all within walking distance of one another, and your rented vehicle will also be found nearby to the airport terminal. However, Europcar customers will need to use a ‘meet and greet’ service at this airport, as the rental offices of the company are located a short distance from the terminal buildings. Free shuttle services will be available at the time of your arrival, and will take you to the offices of Europcar from where you can arrange a vehicle, or collect a pre-arranged vehicle.

Europcar’s vehicles are very popular, and are therefore best reserved in advance. The smaller cars for hire include the Nissan Pixo, Fiat Panda and Volkswagen Polo, and are often the cars that are available with the most affordable rental rates. They can also be hired by anyone who is just 21 years of age or older, while many other vehicles are only available to persons of 25 years of age or older. Younger renters will, however, pay additional charges for young drivers insurance. This is a mandatory fee that is applicable to each young driver registered on the rental contract and each day of car hire. All renters will be required to produce a valid drivers license and a major credit card upon collection of the vehicle. All drivers should also be present at the time of collection.

Slightly larger cars available from Europcar include the Nissan Notte, Nissan Tida, Hyundai Accent, Volvo S40 and the Audi A4, which are found in the vehicle categories of Compact, Standard and Fullsize. They are ideal cars for families, as they have more space for luggage items. Keep in mind that all cars are hired by category, rather than by their specific makes and models. The majority of vehicles hired come with manual transmissions, and features such as air conditioning. The Fiat Doblo is one of Europcar’s largest vehicles, with room for seven passengers and three luggage items. Larger or specialty cars for hire, for example the Nissan Qashqai, have a low availability, and their reservations will be confirmed by email within 48 hours of their request.

The Athens International Airport car hire companies hire their vehicles with optional equipment that may include child seats, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems. These items are not free of charge, and should be reserved early to ensure their availability. Although they are an additional expense, they are often worth the few extra Euro for safety and ease of navigation in Athens. Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers could also be available, and this device is free of charge, as it is a service provided for those with a mobility challenge. The device is ideally used by someone with a lower limb disability, as it operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. From Athens Airport, hand control equipment will require at least a forty-eight hour advanced reservation.

Europcar one way hires could be possible to arrange from Athens Airport. One way hires are when the vehicle is collected from one location but then returned to another. The service may be limited to a few vehicle categories, and could have extra charges, depending on the length of the rental and the return location selected. Many of the Athens International Airport car rental companies do not allow cross-border rentals, when the vehicle is driven out of the country. Always confirm the details of one way hires or cross-border rentals with Europcar before finalizing your travel itinerary.

Driving a rented car in central Athens is not really recommended, however, a private vehicle is ideal for travelling the outer areas of the city, and for travelling to towns and cities nearby. There are large roads that lead away from the city, such as the E94 to the west and the E75 to the north. A couple of the city’s major attractions are found a few kilometers from the central areas, and are therefore most easily reached in a rented car. Your rented car will be received in a good and clean condition, and with a full tank of fuel. It should be returned the same, and before the rental contract expires. Late returns will incur extra charges.

Europcar at Athens International Airport will be glad to assist with any further enquiry regarding their car rental services.
