To get your rental car, follow these simple steps upon arrival at our offices:

  • You will need to present two documents: a valid driving license and proof of identity (either a National ID or passport).

With Ride & Drive, you’re granted unlimited mileage without any extra charges, allowing you to travel across Greece freely in your rental car. However, it’s important to be aware of the key restrictions in place:

  • Traveling Outside Greece: It’s against our rental agreement terms to take the rented car outside of Greece. No insurance coverage will be provided if the car is taken across the country’s borders.
  • Ferry Travel: You are allowed to board a ferry to travel to an island with your rental car, but this requires Ride & Drive’s prior consent. Be aware that our insurance coverage does not extend to ferry travel.

There is an additional charge of €20 for picking up or returning the rental car outside regular hours, specifically from 21:00 in the evening to 08:00 in the morning.
