I see you already suggested ACR yesterday athanasios!

Hoffit - I doubt anyone will cover you totally for tyres, glass, underside etc. Not sure why you are so worried about this unless you are planning to go off road, in which case you should have a 4WD to lessen the risk. Automatic cars are not so widely available in Greece, so you will have to contact maybe several companies for availability on the dates you plan to travel.

Pelion is around 4 to 5 hours drive from Athens Airport mainly on good highway so stopping part way is hardly worth it. If you arrive late in the day to Athens it may be better to stay there & pick up a car next day.

tsipouro was the same question asked yesterday?after 2.000 posts they all seem the same,,

as tsipouro said,i would too just go all the way..

all the villages scattered in plio mountain have opportunities for hiking..do you mean organized hiking by some tour group? for accomodation you can go to http://www.booking.com/ ,click on ''additional search options'' and customize your search according to your preferances

Hey and welcome Tiptop2014:-) You'll find a number of car rental agencies at the airport at the airport's site at www.aia.gr/ It's a nice, predominantly coastal run to Pelion of about 5 hours once you hit Volos.. if you want to stop somewhere somewhat midway, take a look at Kammena Vourla and check out the Galiini Spa hotel;-) Regardless, you'll find lots of places to stay en route.. from signs with rooms to rent (domatia) to hotels:-) Best.. and EnJOY!

Have you contacted the company you were given a link to in post #1 or the companies in the link from post #4? No-one can do this for you I'm afraid. You need to contact hire companies, tell them you requirements & see what they can offer.

We rented many years with ACR but they didn't have a small category car this year (?). We booked with Odysseys Car Rental, well NEVER do that because you pay money in advance and they just don't show!! We had a good offer from SIXT at the airport and even better in their office downtown, insured everything.
