Athens is a Greek capital with unique history, culture, and of course architecture. It is Athens and its outskirts, which associate all over the world with antiquity. Here you can see both ancient and modern Greece. The city is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Visiting Greece is just impossible without visiting Athens.

Speed limitation

It's rather easy to memorize the speed limitations in Greece:

  • The driving speed within inhabited areas must not exceed 50 km/h.
  • Leaving these areas, you can drive up to 90 km/h.
  • There are also roads in Greece where one can drive up to 110 km/h and highways with authorized speed 130 km/h.

We recommend you to pay close attention to traffic signs, as there are special speed limits in some road's sections.

Parking

In the center of Athens to find a park, even the charge, almost unreal. In Athens, there is such a practice: on even days of the week from entering the central part of the city allowed cars that have even numbers and the odd - on the contrary.

There is also a division between locals and visitors alike. Parking spaces designated for the Athenians blue markings, and for visitors to Athens - white. Maximum parking time - 3 hours, and the cost of it is 6 EUR.

Driving regulations

Greece is rather strict country concerning observance of the driving regulations, that's why you should be attentive to traffic signs and try not to violate these regulations as it can lead to serious fines.

Athens is the city with lots of sharp turns and a great number of crossings. Pay close attention to the road to avoid unpleasant situations (for example, do not start on green light at once as local citizens often try to cross on red).

All passengers in a car must be buckled up in their own seatbelts. Children can go in a car if only a child car seat is available. Also, children up to 11 years old must not go in a forward seat.

Use of radar detectors is strictly penalized (2000 EUR fine and confiscation of driver's license). It is prohibited to use hand-held cell phones while driving and also drive in daylight hours with dimmed headlights on.

Use the toll roads renting a car in Athens

You can travel around the country by two autobahns. One of them goes between Athens and Thessaloniki, and another one connects Athens with Peloponnesus. Driving the autobahn, watch the speed as its exceeding leads to serious fines. Entering the autobahn a fee must be paid. Fees depend on the type of vehicle and autobahn length (1-3 EUR). Payment is done with cash. Watch the fuel as the filling stations are opened till 7 pm. The exceptions are some huge cities and highways.

I love to visit unfamiliar places with my wife. Not so long ago, we returned from Greece. We traveled on a rented car and the price for the week was quite low. We found the car, reserved it and paid for it via this car aggregator. Upon the arrival in Athens, we got the clean car with a full tank without any problems. We drove out and looked at a large number of attractions without haste. We liked to travel by car.

We went to conquer the desert and flew to Dakar. We felt like real riders at the rally. We reserved the cars via this site in advance in order to get the necessary number of cars. We were pleased with a wide choice of cars, so each of us selected the car he liked. We paid for the cars directly and without fees via this resource as well. Everything was very good. In the future I'll use this portal with great pleasure.

Together with friends we traveled along the roads of the Netherlands. Since there were 7 of us, we rented a minivan for 7 seats and went to have fun. We rented the van via this resource and it was convenient for us, as all options were already included in the cost, and there was no need to pay extra charges. In general, the cost was ridiculous for 7 people. The site is simple, understandable and reliable.

I used the services of a wide variety of car rental sites, and also rented a car at the destination place for many times. For some time past I use only this resource. For me, the advantages are obvious. It's easy rent and possibility to pay immediately via the site. By the way, you can forget about the situation when there is no suitable car for you, as it's often happened when renting a car at the destination place. I constantly recommend it to my friends.

We had a great time on the roads of Germany. We tested the famous avtobahns. For this purpose we rented quite prestigious cars. Moreover, we paid for the rental a very low price due to this resource. There were no problems at all.
