    Frequently Asked Questions About Car Hire in Greece

    How old do you need to be to hire a car in Greece?

    To hire a car in Greece, drivers must be at least 21 years of age. Drivers in the range of 21 - 25 should be aware that they will most likely be subject to an additional "young driver surcharge," which is typically a daily charge that will vary depending on the supplier.

    Can I use my licence to drive in Greece?

    Most countries and car hire suppliers, allow travellers to drive simply with their domestic licence. While you can drive your car off the lot without an international driver's permit (IDP), Auto Europe recommends an IDP as some local police officers may issue a ticket to international drivers without an IDP, in the event that you are pulled over.

    Country Essentials

    Greek motorists drive on the right-hand side of the road. As you travel, each country may have slightly different driving rules, so be sure to familiarise yourself with the legal driving requirements and road symbols. Stay within the legal speed limits, which can change during poor weather.

    Standard Inclusions

    All of our car hire bookings include Value Added Tax (VAT) and third-party liability insurance. You can also have peace of mind with 24-hour emergency roadside assistance and 24/7 phone support.

    Licence Requirements

    It is a requirement that visiting motorists carry their valid Australian State or Territory driving licence, which must be valid for at least one year. Australian drivers must also carry a valid International Driving Licence in addition to their Australian licence, which must be obtained before leaving Australia. The minimum age to hire a car in Greece is 21 years, though some suppliers may charge a fee for young drivers (25 and under) or senior drivers (75 and over).

    Border Crossings

    If you plan on visiting more of Europe than simply Greece, there are a few things to bear in mind. You will need to inform us of the countries you intend to visit at the time of booking and when you pick up your car hire. In general, travel across borders is permitted between west and central European nations.

    Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel in to certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place. Fees may also be payable to the supplier to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area to which you are travelling.
