Important information about Thessaloniki car hire

Can I cross the border with a rental car from Thessaloniki?

No matter if you are searching for standard or cheap car rental in Thessaloniki, they will commonly abide by the same rules. It is usually ok for passengers to have intentions of crossing the border with their Thessaloniki car hire. Providers usually request that you advise them of any border crossing before you book your car hire, so they can determine whether this is a suitable option of choice. If you plan to cross borders, then always plan your journey appropriately and within the parameters of your hire company. You should also always check with your travel provider about returning your hire vehicle, as they usually request that you return the car to the same branch that you picked it up from. Those who intend to cross the border should also plan their return.

Can you hire a car in Thessaloniki without a credit card?

Requirements of not using a credit card with car hire in Thessaloniki can differ depending on which provider you choose to hire your vehicle from. Credit cards are commonly used to pay a deposit for your hire vehicle in the possible circumstance that your vehicle faces accidental damage whilst it is in your possession. Most providers request that you use a credit card, but some will instead allow other options of choice like a Visa debit card or a Mastercard debit card. If this is a necessity for you, make sure to always advise your provider before you are due to travel, to make sure that they accept other forms of payment.

When you are approaching a roundabout, you should always make sure that you proceed with caution and give way to drivers approaching from the left. All drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts (in both the front and back seats), and children under the age of 10 will not be able to travel in the front.

Some companies might also only hire to those younger than the age of 70. When you pick up your hire vehicle, you will need to show your full and valid driving licence that has been valid for at least 12 months. In addition, you will need to show your passport; this must be valid at the time of your booking as well as throughout the entire duration of your stay in Thessaloniki.
