AutoEurope Pick Up in Athens

We are spending a few days in Athens, after which we will be picking up a rental car through AutoEurope and heading to Messina. I don't want to have to back-track to the airport to pick up the car (or pay the airport pick-up surcharge). Can anyone tell me which of AutoEurope's Athens pick-up locations would be the most convenient?

Thanks

Our hotel is in central Athens, near the Plaka. Here are our choices:

58 - 60 Spirou Patsi &

46 - 48 Queen Amalias Avenue

12 Syngrou Ave.

71 Vassilissis Sofias Avenue

Kifissias Avenue 286

381 Messogion Avenue

Piraeus - Nicolaou St

2nd Km Peanias - Markopoulo

1 Karaiskaki M. Alexandrou St

45-47 Mela J Bostari

I'm more interested in which location will make our exit from Athens easier, rather than finding the one closest to our hotel.

Many thanks

This website is good for pinpointing addresses in Athens:

You want a location close to either E75 or the National Hwy E94.

Somebody asked me about that before. the SPirou Patsi address is National Car rental, and it is 2-3 blocks off E-94, which heads straight west toward the Peloponnese. To pinpoint it, go to this website: http://www.greece4real.com/greece4.html
There's a map on there called "Wider Athens" to download. ON it, you will see, to the West of Central Athens, a Magenta legend "BUS TERMINAL A" that is right off the E-94 ...the big yellow road. Spirou Patsi is right around there, and the car people will direct you the 2-3 block to get on the big highway. YOU will take a taxi to get to Spirou Patsi ... probably about 8€ from Plaka district. I think that is a very good plan, if you get a good rate from Auto Europe.

BTW... First time we rented I kept looking for a sign like N-94 ..i.e. National. Silly me. National is a LATIN word. E = Ethnos = National. We're in GReece!
