Athens Airport. Special offer for car rental

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

Car prices may change daily. To get a fixed price, book in advance. In the case of cancellation of the trip, you may cancel your car rental free of charge, what is most important is to do it no later than 24 hours before the trip.

Available payment options

Pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, or an American Express card.
BE CAREFUL. When you receive a car, you may need a credit card, and you will not be able to use a debit card. You can find further information about details in advance in the Payment Methods section.


If such a requirement does exist, and you are the holder of a debit card, it is not a problem. Many banks issue debit cards, which are listed as credit cards in the system and have zero limit. Check your card type on www.bindb.com by entering the first 6 digits.

Insurance options

When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.

You may find the exact size of the franchise and insurance features under the terms and conditions of rent of a specific car selected in the search results. Information on this issue is displayed in the Insurance Cover section.

Speed limits in Greece

Do you like fast driving? Try not to do this in the city and its surroundings; proceedings with local road patrol service will not add charm to your vacation. Speed limits specified in Athens Airport:

If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.

Be careful on the road. Fines in Greece are quite high.

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

Extra payments at the rental office and possible taxes

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

During the booking process, you will be offered to choose equipment that is not included in the standard package, for example, sports equipment storage. You will know the price immediately, but you should pay for it to the rental company upon receipt of a car.

Conditions for cancellation/modification of booking

You may cancel your order via a special form on the website. Standard cancellation conditions are as follows: free cancellation of order 24 hours before the start of booking. Upon cancellation less than 24 hours, the fine of 50 EUR will be charged. After the date of receipt of a car, the order cannot be cancelled. If a customer does not arrive at the place for renting a car and does not inform Cars-scanner.co.uk about cancellation of the booking, 100% of the order value is withheld. Additionally, in some proposals, cancellation charges may be changed. Be sure to pay attention to the relevant clause in the rental terms.

I have already visited countries of Eastern Europe several times. I find variants of cars to rent on very favorable terms via this aggregator.

Once I didn't use the services of this resource and I felt sorry for it. I missed the offer to rent a car, which was cheaper than mine by 40%.

Our flight was delayed by about 5 hours and we had no way of contacting the company of our late arrival. Naturally we were a bit worried whether our booking would still be in place when we eventually arrive. It was. The paperwork was ready to go and we were in our rented car and on our way within 15 minutes of arrival. The quality of the car was much better than we expected as well. Very clean.
