What documents will I need to collect my rental car?
Please be aware that to be able to drive a car in Greece you must have either an international license that accompanies your valid licence, or a valid European Union issued driving license. The law is very strict and you are unable to drive a car in Greece without one. Failure to have this document will result in you not being permitted to rent a car from us. To be eligible for vehicle rental you must present a valid driving licence for each registered driver. The driving licence must have been issued at least one year before the rental date. The minimum age for car rental is 21. We also require credit card details so we can take a security deposit.
