There are several local car hire companies and a few internationally recognised car hire providers at Ermoupoli Syros Island Airport. A popular one is Alma Car Hire. Alma and the other car hire companies can be found right at the end of the arrival hall, in the main terminal building. The car park to collect and return your Ermoupoli Syros Island Airport car hire is Car Park A, on the ground floor as you enter the airport building.
On Syros Island, you'll be driving on the right-hand side of the road. Everyone in the car must be wearing a seat belt at all times, and children under 10 years old are not allowed in the front seat. You may not use a mobile phone for any reason while driving. The legal blood alcohol level is 0.05%, and you are not allowed to use beam headlights in towns at any time of day.
In order to qualify for car hire, you must be at least 21 years old. This might change depending on the category of car you wish to hire. Higher calibre cars require you to be older; for example, to hire a luxury car you'll need to be at least 23 years old. To qualify for car hire at any age, you will need to have held a valid driver's licence for at least one year.
Firstly, you cannot collect your car hire with a debit card; you'll need a credit card. Next, you need a valid ID or passport and an international driver's licence if you are not a local passport holder to the Greek Islands. Copies of these documents are not allowed; you'll need to have the originals on hand.
