SIXT Car Rental Services at Athens Airport

Athens International Airport is an important European airport located just to the east of central Athens. It is a new airport, as it was built to replace the older Athens Ellinikon International Airport, and is known by its official IATA code of ATH. It is also known as the Eleftherios Venizelos Airport, in honour of a Prime Minister of Greece. The airport has many facilities for its arriving and departing passengers, and there are options for ground transportation as well. These options including the Athens International Airport car rental companies, that are convenient for arriving passengers who would like to drive a private vehicle. Sixt is available at Athens Airport, and always strives to provide high quality vehicles at affordable car hire rates.

In the airport’s main terminal building there are banking services, shops and restaurants, restrooms, information centers and many other facilities for passengers. This building is also the location of the airport’s car rental companies, that include Sixt. Passengers who are coming from Gate A will find the car rental counters to the right, and those who are coming from Gate B should turn left, and will find the car rental counters between exits thee and four. Sixt is open at this airport location twenty-four hours a day, and seven days a week, and is therefore a convenient choice for passengers on all arrival flights. They are even open all day on bank holidays. Advanced reservations are recommended in order to receive the ideal car for your holiday or business trip in Athens.

To collect a vehicle from Sixt, passengers will need to be at least 21 years of age, and should be in possession of a valid drivers license and major credit card. Any license that has been issued in the European Union will be accepted, however, those travelling from other destinations may need to arrange an International Driving Permit before leaving their home country. This document should accompany, rather than replace, their local license. Major credit cards that are usually accepted at all the Athens International Airport car hire companies are Visa, MasterCard/Access/Eurocard, American Express and Diners Club. Take note that additional drivers may be registered on the rental contract, but they should also meet the same requirements as the primary renter.

A number of vehicles can be hired by persons under the age of 25, but certain categories may also be unavailable. They are often the ones that contain luxury or premium vehicles, or larger SUV's and passenger vans. Persons younger than 25 will also be subject to higher rental rates, for young drivers insurance. This amount is applicable per day of car hire, and per underage driver listed on the rental contract. Extra charges are also applicable should you wish to hire a satellite navigation system with your vehicle, or a child seat. These items of equipment are available over the rental counter, but unless reserved, their availability cannot be guaranteed.

Athens Airport is completely accessible to persons with mobility challenges, and the car hire companies may offer various services that assist persons with a lower limb disability or a visual impairment. Sixt hand controls can be hired free of charge, and are used to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of certain types of automatic vehicles. From Athens Airport, hand control devices should be reserved at least forty-eight hours prior to your arrival. A person who does not hold a driving license due to a visual impairment may still be the primary renter of a vehicle, provided that he/she is accompanied by an able driver with a license. This second-driver is free of charge.

Sixt Athens has an assortment of vehicles for their customers, and all of which are in very good condition. They are checked regularly for safety, and are all of the latest models possible. Recommended by Sixt is the Peugeot 308 at a very reasonable rental price, while if more space is required, the Peugeot 307 STW is ideal. The Peugeot 307 STW is a station wagon, the type of vehicle that often has more room for luggage items, but the Peugeot 307 is a sedan available that has an automatic transmission. Additional cars available that have low rental rates include the Chevrolet Matiz, Peugeot 107 and Peugeot 207. They all come with unlimited free mileage, which means that you will not pay extra if longer road trips are planned. Only your fuel costs will need to be considered.

SUV's from Sixt may be similar to the Suzuki Jimny and Nissan Xtrail, while Vans available include the Peugeot 807 and Nissan Primaster, both with room for a larger group of passengers. Sixt one-way hires are available for vehicles from most categories, however, they could be more expensive than an ordinary rental from Athens International Airport. One way services are when the vehicle is collected from one location but is then returned to another. Although rented cars may usually be driven to any town or city in Greece, they may often not cross over into any other country.

The process of returning a rented vehicle could take a few minutes, therefore always arriving back at the airport in good time for your departure flight. When returning to Athens Airport, simply follow the signs for ‘Car Rental’, without turning off towards departures or arrivals. Go past a parking garage and turn to the right. The parking offices for Sixt rented cars is then at the end of the road. Contact Sixt at Athens International Airport for all further information required.
