KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Piraeus

  • Car hire in Piraeus offers more flexibility than if you were to travel using an alternative mode of transport, such as a bus, taxi or train. This is because you can travel at a time that’s suitable for you, rather than waiting for public transport or taxis. For instance, if you were to drive to the nearby town of Glyfada, this would take around 20min. To make the same journey via public transport would take about 1h 10min, and you’d also have to abide by the timetable for departures.
  • Athens Airport (ATH) offers a range of car hire companies that you can choose from. The branches are easy to find too, so it won’t take long for you to get your journey underway. For example, you can find the SIXT office in the arrivals hall of the airport. If you are coming from Gate A, you would need to turn right, whereas if you’re coming from Gate B, you will need to turn left. The branch is between Exits 3 and 4.
  • When you get a car hire in Piraeus, you will see that it’s a popular port city in the Athens area. It attracts lots of visitors from all over the world who are interested in its history and architecture. For this reason, you should expect tourists to cross roads at places that aren’t designated pedestrian crossings, so drive carefully. Cycle hire is also a popular way to discover Piraeus and Athens, so you should regularly check your mirror for cyclists, especially when you turn.
  • When you get a Piraeus car hire, you will notice that there is a lot of traffic, with roads getting very busy during rush hour. The busier times on the roads tend to be from 07:00 to 10:00 and 16:00 to 19:00, so if possible, avoid driving during these hours. Mikras Asias is one road that is very busy during this time, as it connects the city to other coastal resorts as well as Athens. So, if you can avoid travelling on this road, it’s advisable to do so.
  • Book your car hire in Piraeus at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Piraeus are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Carlos at Piraeaus upgraded us to a Mercedes and the largest in the small car class, very helpful!

Cons:

He (and I) didn't check the fuel gauge during check-in, and once we set off I realized about 1/16 of a tank was missing. Upon return, we returned it full as to not incur any costs, though they refused to refund us the amount.
