Car rental in Greece

Jump to last reply

We will be in Greece May 21 to June 5 and will need to rent vehicles in 3 different locations (Crete, Paros and Piraeus). We have always used AutoEurope for car rental and been satisfied so I began my search with them.

I noticed a thread here on rentals with Budget in Athens and checked with them. Their rate seems to be significantly lower than AutoEurope's for a pick-up in Piraeus and drop off in Athens. I have not yet called AE to ask if they will match the rate.....not sure if I'm comparing the same vehicles.

On our last trip to Greece, we only needed cars for a day or two at a time and just asked our hotels to make arrangements. This trip we need them for 4 days at a time.

We are wondering if using local vendors (which I know AutoEurope does) is better than using the consolidator. Can anyone comment on using AutoEurope in Greece vs local vendors? If local rental agencies are best, any recommendations for Crete and Paros?

Thanks for any advice.
