HERTZ Car Rental Services at Athens Airport

Athens International Airport is located approximately 20 km, or 12 miles east of central Athens, and it is a large European airport handling over fourteen million passengers per annum. The airport is named after a Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos, and is known by the IATA code of ATH. It is also a hub location for several airlines, such as Aegean Airlines, Cyprus Airways, Hellenic Imperial Airways and Olympic Air. At the airport passengers have access to many facilities, including the Athens International Airport car hire companies, such as Hertz.

Rented car is a very popular way to travel to the towns and cities that surround Athens. Rafina and Artmida are found along the eastern coastline, and Koropi and Glifada are to the west of the airport. To the south there are several areas of interest as well. Most of the roads in and around Athens are in good condition, only within the center of the city the roads and traffic may be a bit chaotic. Since that many passengers rent a car, it is recommended to make an advanced reservation from Hertz, in order to ensure that the best vehicle for your holiday or business trip is available. Hertz online car rental reservations are considered as most convenient.

The rental counters of Hertz are found on the arrivals level of the main terminal building of Athens Airport, and they are open from 06:00 in the morning to 23:00 at night. Vehicles can be hired seven days a week, and often on public holidays as well. Even though Hertz is closed from 23:00, out of office hour pickups and returns are possible, but there may be an additional fee for this service. At this rental location, luggage racks and child seats can be hired with the vehicle, and a satellite navigation system may also be available. These are extra items of equipment that will cost a certain amount per day of hire, or per rental contract. A child seat is essential if you will be travelling with the younger members of your family, and most drivers find a GPS unit to be very helpful.

Gold Counter service is available at Hertz Athens International Airport as well, which means that all customers who belong to the Hertz #1 Club Gold will receive priority counter service and a wide range of other benefits that go along with their membership. The club can be joined by frequent renters (persons who have rented a car from Hertz three or more times in a twelve month period) and generally helps a customer to save time and money, by providing access to services that are not usually available. Less frequent renters are also rewarded by Hertz for being a customer, as they can join the Hertz #1 Club, and enjoy a number of services as well. These memberships are free of charge, and are not a signed contract.

Hertz hand controls are used by persons with a lower limb disability, as they operate the accelerator and brake pedals of the vehicle. They do not, however, control any other vehicle functions, such as the car’s lights and windshield wipers. Since this is a service offered only to persons who suffer from a physical disability, hand controls are free of charge. From the rental location of Athens Airport, hand controls should be reserved in advance, allowing at least forty-eight hours for fitment before your arrival. The notice period is also required as the device can only be used on certain types of vehicles with automatic transmissions.

If a car has been hired from one of the Athens International Airport car rental companies, it should be returned to the same location, unless a one-way hire service has been arranged. Hertz one way hires can also be referred to as the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, and allows the vehicle to be returned to a location other than Athens Airport. One way hires could be more expensive than an ordinary rental, and are sometimes not available for every vehicle category.

Vehicles hired from Hertz are in good condition, and are regularly checked for safety. They are arranged into various categories, for example, those from the Standard Car category include the Hyundai i10, MCC Smart, Opel Corsa, VW Polo, VW Golf, Ford Focus, VW Passat, Ford Focus C-Max or similar. In the Estate category, customers will find cars similar to the Seat Altea XL, while the 4WD/SUV/Minivan category contains larger vehicles, such as the Daihatsu Terios, Toyota RAV, Saab 9-7X and VW Transporter, with room for up to nine passengers. This VW is ideal for transporting groups of sight-seers or business partners.

In most cases, the smaller cars hired come with cheaper rental rates, while larger vehicles are more expensive. The majority of vehicles can be hired by persons just 21 years of age or older, provided that the renter has a valid driving license and a major payment card in their own name. The card must be one of the accepted major credit cards, and the customer should have a good credit record, as no debit cards may be used at this location. Further details are available from Hertz at Athens International Airport.
