Fira rules state drivers must be at least 21 to be able to rent a vehicle. However, young drivers can expect an extra cost and some restrictions. Most suppliers impose a young renter fee on top of the standard rental rate. This covers the higher risk of damage or accident. While many car classes (like compact and economy) are available to young motorists, restrictions generally apply to specialty and premium cars.
While rules may differ between car rental outlets, the two main things you’ll need are a current driver’s license and a credit card. You don’t need to take out the company’s auto insurance. However, proof of your own coverage may be required.
Cars drive on the right and pass on the left in Greece — the same side as in the States. Traveling around Fira won’t be exactly like home, though. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the local traffic rules.
