In view of the recent measures applied and already in effect by the Greek ministry of transport regarding driving documentation required for hiring a car in Greece. All drivers that dont have a EU driving licences and US American-Canadian-Australian driver’s license holders are obliged to have an international driving license in order to drive a rented car in Greece, without this necessary documentation the fine is €1.000 for the rent a car company and €1.000 for the client. We therefore request all non-European Community customers to ensure that they have a valid International driver’s license prior to their arrival in Greece.
