    You can find many such companies in Athens, at the airport or in the centre, at the beginning of Syngrou avenue, anyone can tell you how to get there.

    But there are many offices renting cars wherever you go, cities and islands mainly though, not mainland villages. Prices are similar everywhere I guess.

    I have been satisfied with Sixt Rent-A-Car, www.sixt.gr but it was for a period of 40 days mid-April-end May; the price was extremely low and the car in perfect condition!
