Welcome to Thessaloniki International Airport Macedonia (SKG)

 

When you arrive at the airport you will be met by a member of our staff who you’ll find near to the exit doors and who’ll be holding a sign with your name. From here you will be escorted to your clean and fully-maintained hire vehicle. It’s not far away and from here you’ll be able to continue on to your final destination without any fuss or problems.

We are open 7 days a week from 08:00 am to 22:00 pm. After hours services are subject to a 15 euro charge and a pre-booking is required to collect your vehicle. In case of emergency, we provide 24/7 assistance on our emergency number 0030 698 301 48 99.

At the pick-up our staff member will complete a rental agreement with you so please remember to have your documents, driving license, passport/ ID card and payment. For those travelling with children we offer baby/child seats and boosters, please make sure that you tell us your needs at the time of booking.

We strongly recommend our customers to pre-book their vehicle at least 2-4 days before arrival especially during high season July/August when the availability can be very limited due to high demand.

Thessaloniki International Airport is well situated to offer easy access to the ‘Egnatia Odos’ (European Motorway route E90), which is the fastest and safest way across the north of Greece, especially to the ports of Kavala and Keramoti from where there are frequent ferries to Thassos.

When picking up your hire vehicle from Thessaloniki International Airport why not take the time to check out Greece’s second city, Thessaloniki, you will be amazed just how much it has to offer. From museums, churches, archaeological sites and the famous White Tower to its numerous hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and fashionable shops which flow through the city streets.

Kavala ferry port can be easily reached off the E90 motorway and this route is well signposted, the ferries from here land at Prinos on Thassos and the crossing takes approximately 1¼ hours. Kavala city is well worth a visit, it is built amphitheatrically offering magnificent views over the coast and the crystal blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Kavala has a cosmopolitan feel with its many hotels, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and fashionable shops. The old town ‘Panagia’ offers a chance to discover its long and complex history; there is a Turkish quarter surrounded by Byzantine walls and a castle offering stunning views over the city and the Aegean sea, something for everyone. On the opposite side of the E90 near to Kavala is Philippi, which also boasts a very rich history including a major Roman battle and is well worth a visit.

Driving further on the E90 motorway past Kavala you will reach the exit for the port of Keramoti. On your journey to the port you will pass through the small village of Agiasma, which is famous for a pair of storks that return to breed at the same nesting site built on the church’s clock tower every year. Keramoti is a small but busy fishing port and is the most popular route to Thassos; the ferry lands at Limenas – Thassos Town and the crossing takes approximately 45 minutes. Keramoti has several hotels, restaurants and tavernas and a very popular long sandy beach.

The timetables for the ferries are updated on a weekly basis. Click here for latest timetables and information about Ferry boats to Thassos. It is always worthwhile checking to see if there are any last minute changes to the itineraries. Tickets cannot be purchased in advance or online. You must buy your tickets at the kiosks in the ports. Please also note (at present) tickets can only be paid for in cash, credit and debit cards are not accepted. Last but not least, please remember if you are using a car from Potos Car Rentals you will need our written (on the Rental Agreement) permission to travel with the car on any ferry. Once on Thassos please let us know in advance if you plan a trip to the mainland in one of our cars.
