Car rental Athens

Athens is a 3,5 hour drive from Hakuna Matata Holidays by car.

By far the best thing is to arrange the car rental well in advance from UK. Our own experience is that booking directly to the rental company is more easy than via an intermediate. We have very good experiences with ‘Sunny Cars’ as well.

Car rental is arranged at the terminal of the airport or in the way of ‘meet and greet’, where the location of the car rental company is outside the airport, often in Markopoulo. There will be a shuttle service to the rental office.

Tip!

On your way from Athens / Kalamata, between the airport of Kalamata and the town of Rizómilo, you will find stalls where sweet oranges (and other local, delicious fresh fruit and vegetables) are sold; take a big bag with you! These oranges are delicious, also for pressing. An electric citrus press belongs to the kitchen inventory at Hakuna Matata Holidays!
