2. Driver's Licence

Drivers must have a valid EU or International Drivers' license issued at least one year before.

3. Traffic Fines - Violations - Accessories - Car Keys

All traffic fines resulting from any violation of the Greek Traffic law during the rental period are strictly the renter's responsibility and must be paid by the renter. Losing or destroying any kind of car accessories is not covered by the insurance. Losing or breaking the car key is not covered by the insurance.
In both of the above cases, the renter is surcharged by the cost of replacement.

4. Fuel

The car must be returned with the same level of fuel as when it was delivered.

5. Rental Period

Minimum rental period is 3 days. The first hour of delay in returning the car is not charged. Over 2 hours delay will be charged as one extra day of rental. For rentals of longer than 28 days, please contact us by email or phone.

6. Insurance coverage in case of accidents

In case of an accident, especially if another car or individual is involved, our company, as well as the nearest police station must be informed and a police accident report must be filled out (please read the brochure you are given on the pickup day that has all this helpful information). If we are not notified, and without the police report, or the insurance expert's report, the renter is responsible for the full amount of the repairs of the car.

The renter will also be responsible for the full amount of the repairs of the car in the following cases: driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving on non-asphalt paved roads or unauthorized roads and driving in prohibited areas. All these show the customer's disregard to our vehicle.

The company reserves the right to  retain the renter's credit card information as a guarantee for our cars. In case of an accident caused by the renter's own fault (careless driving, violation of traffic rules), there will be a charge on the renter's card accordingly (this excess amount will be advised beforehand).


The amount of 50 Euros is required upon reservation. You will have to confirm your booking by either charging your credit card through our SSL server, by Paypal, or by bank transfer. Only after the payment is completed, will your request be considered as a booking.                  
The rest of the amount will be paid off upon delivery of the car.

Methods of payment
• On line
• Bank transfer
• Paypal
We accept the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, Diners, Discover or Masterpass 


Upon pick-up of your rental car, Artemis S.A. will pre-authorise an amount from the driver's credit/debit card, as a guarantee (excess) for our car. At the end of your rental period, this amount will be fully refunded, provided no harm / damage has been done to our car. The refund procedure may take up to 2-3 weeks, depending on the issuing bank of the renter's card. The excess / pre-authorization amount varies as follows:
Car groups A, B, C (smaller categories): 300 Euros
Car groups E, F, V (bigger categories): 400 Euros


Car models will be provided according to the original agreement. In the extreme case of no such availability, we reserve the right to provide another similar model, or if this is not possible, decline the booking and inform you immediately.
