We will be in Greece in early October.
We are going to rent a car for 3 days and drive to Nafplio.
I was thinking about renting the car in Athens, at the Port (after returning from Hydra by hydrofoil) and returning it to the car rental company at the Athens airport, 3 days later.
I have 3 concerns that I could use your help with.
1- I want to pick a reliable company with a good reputation. On other vacations (not Greece) I have shown up for car rentals before and been told that there is no car for me even though I have had a reservation. It ruined the vacation. I want to avoid that.
Any recommendations for a great dependable car rental company?
2-Should I rent the car through a travel agency in Canada, and prepay in advance?
I worry about showing up at the car rental company with just a prepaid coupon and being turned away, with no recourse.
3- Is returning a car rental, at 2 p.m., at the airport a challenge.??
I am unsure about how busy cross-town traffic is, and easy-to-read signs????
Your thoughts and/or suggestions would be appreciated.
