Rent a car?

6 Replies



We are in the process of booking a holiday in Greece in July. The question is: should we rent a car? I understand traffic in Athens is a bit chaotic.Or should we stick to public transport (we have a 5 year old girl)?

It depends what your plans are?

Public transportation is very good in Athens. If you want to visit the city, there is no need for a car. You can easily use the metro or buses. And don't forget that taxi's are also very cheap.

I do advise you to take the metro from the airport to the city centre. Taxi drivers are known to overcharge foreigners.

I agree with Marianne. Unless you are planning on travelling around Greece, you won't need a car. Athens has a very good public transportation network.

You can find more detailed information on the following page:

Thanks, I think we'll just rent a car for a couple of days if we plan to go out of town.
