Best places to visit in Greece

  • Athens: A historical hub with impressive buildings and monuments that date back over two-thousand years, you’ll find yourself immersed within this vibrant city. The pièce de résistance of the city is the Acropolis, however Athens has many other fabulous areas for tourists to visit too, such as Monastriraki. 
  • Thessaloniki: What is known as Greece’s second city, Thessaloniki is a thriving place popular with tourists, students and locals. With fantastic sites to visit, such as the White Tower, or the wonderful waterfront, you with love the energy this city gives off.  
  • Chania: Located on the Greek island of Crete, Chania’s charm lures visitors year after year. The narrow, quaint streets and little restaurants are akin to a film set, whilst the impressive lighthouse helps Chania shine brighter than other cities.

Great service! The car they gave us looked like a new car, it was in a great condition.

The staff is very friendly and nice. Also, they came and pick up us at the port when we arrived and then they gave us a lift to the port when we got the car back.

Strongly recommended

Had an excellent experience with Sixt at Rhodes Airport.


We arrived at Rhodes on Friday 17th June, perfectly on time for our reservation to collect our car at 1pm. Anna on the Sixt desk welcomed and helped us through the booking confirmation and paperwork.


The car we originally booked, VW Polo, wasn’t available so Anna kindly upgraded us to a VW T-Roc. Lovely car, spacious and spotlessly clean.


We had the car for 3 days and returned the car with a full tank of fuel.


This was my first experience ever renting a car, as well as my first experiencing driving in another country. Sixt made the experience very smooth from start to finish. Will definitely use this service again.


Thank-you :)

By far the best experience I have ever had renting a car. The day before I arrived Stratos emailed to confirm our flight details so he could be at the airport for our arrival. Our flight was 45 minutes late and Stratos tracked our flight and was patiently waiting when we arrived. He got us situated quickly and Spyros got us a great clean car! Having a car on Paros makes your tip so much better and we even put our “Panda” on the ferry to Antiparos. When we returned the vehicle Stratos was kind enough to drive us to the ferry terminal for our departure. These guys set our honeymoon off to the perfect start! Bravo Stratos & Spyros, thank you!!

I had a very good experience with Sixt at the airport. I had already paid for my reservation and picking the car up procedure was very smooth and pleasant. Also dropping the car off at the airport was easy. Would use this service again.

Keep up the good work team!!!

Everything was fine, car was clean, the service is nice, we rented a VW up, we got a renault Clio of a higher standard, the return of the car went without complications, we were worried about the deposit due to Google reviews, but after 3 days the entire amount was returned to the account, so there is nothing to worry about , I can personally recommend this rental company

Mihail M.

Speedy service and friendly staff. Only a minute walk from the terminal building. Airport signage for driving into the car rental car park is not very clear but at least it's obvious where you need to get to.

Great service, free upgrade, frequent shuttle bus

Very service minded, helpful and positive. My second Sixt-experience, first at SKG. The other was in Zagreb two years ago. Both were close to perfect.
