The latter is often the more affordable option. For holders of Australian licenses DriveNow offers pre-purchased rental insurance for Greece through our partner Hiccup Insurance who specialise in car rental insurance and whose rates are often cheaper than those offered by the rental companies.

Whichever option you elect to take remember that in the event of an accident secure copies of all documentation, police reports and if possible take photos.
