Alexandroupolis sits alongside the Leoforos Dimokratias highway, an important artery that follows portions of the coastline and then quickly connects with Egnatia Odos (E90), a major highway that connects cities in western Greece with Turkey. Visitors with car hire at Alexandroupolis Airport quickly find that this transport hub has enough cultural attractions to warrant staying on a day or two.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
