Salzburg - Car models and reference cost of rent

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

An important detail! Please note that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on the car rental point.

Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

Additional fees and taxes

Planning your trip budget with cars-scanner is easy; when booking, you see the final price of renting a car. No additional fees are charged.

However, you may choose options that are not included in the basic rental package, for example, a child seat or additional ski equipment storage. You will find out their price in advance and will be able to pay on website, at the rental company office.

Conditions for cancellation/modification of booking

If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.

We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.

Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.

Age restrictions

Cheap car rental in Salzburg is possible for drivers 25 years old and over. Young drivers under 25 may be subject to an extra charge on the spot. Some car rental companies charge an additional fee for drivers aged 71-75 years. Age restrictions of a provider and the amount of an extra charge may be found out when booking a car in Salzburg on our website by going to the Age Restrictions section.

Salzburg. Special offer for car rental

We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of the city of Salzburg, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.

Our customers may use current discounts and special offers. We constantly conduct joint deals with many rental companies in Vienna. You can get the best conditions when booking a car in advance (2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods, and 3-6 months before the high season). Discounts in such cases may reach up to 80%. In some cases, it is possible to rent a car at a super price of £ 1 per day.


Toll highways

There are several toll roads in Salzburg. It is convenient and inexpensive to use them. Pay by cash or card.

Speed limits

All the rumours that travelling across Salzburg by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Available payment options

You may pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.



You have read the terms and found out that the credit card is really needed, but you do not have it? Before you do anything, check the type of your current debit card on www.bindb.com. Some banks issue credit cards as debit cards with zero limit. If your card is one on them, you are very lucky. It is also suitable for booking.

When we went to visit sunny Spain, we decided to do it by the car to see more sights and not to spend time sitting in the hotel. We searched for cars via several car aggregators, until we found this one. The most complete sample and very profitable offers. Despite our worries, everything was fine.
