Our rental office is perfectly placed for you to pick up your vehicle and continue on to your final destination without any fuss or problems. In addition to the vehicles in our standard fleet, our office in Skala Potamia also hires out ATV/Quad Bikes.

We are open 7 days a week from 09:00 to 13:00 and from 17:00 to 21:00. 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.

We try our best to make the pick-up and return of your vehicle as easy as possible whether you arrive at our office or need to be collected from your hotel and you can be sure of a punctual and personal service. Your clean and fully-maintained vehicle will be waiting for you when you arrive and returning your vehicle is a simple process too. We’ll even take you back to your hotel if required! 

When collecting your vehicle please remember to have your documents, driving license and passport/ ID card with you. 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.

When picking up your hire vehicle from Skala Potamia why not take the time to check out the town’s beautiful long sandy beach with its abundance of restaurants, tavernas and beach bars which line its pedestrian-friendly promenade.

The town also has a small harbour with a traditional picturesque old building  or “Tarsana”, which is still used today to host cultural events. You will also find numerous souvenir shops and small friendly supermarkets selling traditional Greek products behind the promenade. 

There is a cash machine a few minutes walk away situated on the main coastal road not far from the main resort entrance as it turns to the right; there is also a petrol station, which is easy to reach a little further on. 

Heading south on the main coastal road out of Skala Potamia your journey will take you to the resort of Kinira with its two sandy/pebble beaches, hotels and tavernas which overlook the pretty island of Kinira. Your next port of call is Paradise Beach which has a beautiful long sandy beach with tavernas. Please bear in mind that both roads down to the beach are only accessible by a Jeep 4 x 4. 

Next is Aliki with its astounding surroundings, archaeological ruins and picturesque small bay surrounded by restaurants and tavernas. This is a very busy beauty spot and parking here can be difficult. If you want to see more, then the Monastery of Archangelos is well worth a visit.

Heading inland from Skala Potamia is the village of Potamia with its traditional houses made of stone, here you can visit the Polygnotos Vagis Museum, which houses many of his sculptures.

Adjoining Skala Potamia is Golden Beach with its many restaurants, tavernas and beach bars and of course golden sandy beach. Behind is the picturesque mountain village of Panagia with its very narrow streets filled with restaurants, tavernas and shops. In high season the journey through Panagia can be very problematic due to the narrow road and volume of traffic so drive carefully. After a mountain climb, the main town of Thassos (Limenas) stretches out below with its large harbour, hotels, restaurants, tavernas, shops and beaches. There is also a museum and numerous archaeological sites to visit.
