In Athens, traffic drives on the right and the minimum age for driving is 18 years. Speed limits are 110kph to 130kph (68mph to 81mph) on motorways, 90kph (56mph) outside built-up areas and 50kph (31mph) in built-up areas. It is illegal to carry spare petrol (benzina) in the vehicle. A national driving licence is acceptable for EU nationals but nationals of other countries may need an International Driving Permit. EU nationals in possession of a Green Card, which provides international third-party insurance, are permitted to import a foreign-registered car, caravan, motorcycle, boat or trailer for a maximum of six months (or up to 15 months for a fee). A Green Card is no longer a legal requirement in Greece for visits of less than three months; however, without it, insurance is limited to the minimum legal cover. You must carry car registration documents at all times. The Greek Automobile and Touring Club - ELPA (tel: +30 210 606 8800; www.elpa.gr) provides members of associated national automobile clubs with 24-hour assistance on main roads.
