We found that trying to book car hire via Expedia or Ryanair is more expensive but then we always leave it late??
I think you'll find that Insurance4carhire don't provide cover for hirers everywhere in the EU but restrict it to "What's not covered.......Policyholders who are not residents of the UK, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Republic of Ireland or Germany". It's a double negative which made me think a bit about what they mean.
I had a policy with them for several years but last year I was informed that my then 'any EU resident can have one policy' would be valid for the remainder of the policy term but I wouldn't be able to renew it.
I think there are other companies offering policies to any EU resident but haven't checked as, currently, I don't plan any more trips needing a rental.
P.S. Just had a quick look at Google and other companies I know used to offer 'Excess' cover to any EU resident (Questor is one example) but now restrict availability to residents of specific EU countries. Greece is one of many that are no longer included. I also found a site that purports to list insurers that do provide cover for all EU residents. I gave up after the 4 I looked at (of eight listed) don't cover rentals by residents outside the UK or for a very short list of qualifying countries, none of which includes Greece.
