If you go to Vienna with a group of several people, with your family and friends, we recommend hiring a car. Therefore, you will save on services of tour companies and get your own unforgettable impressions. Only with a car you will see Vienna the way it is open to locals and you will become a part of it without any restrictions. You may take long stops in places you like, or pass by those ones that are uninteresting to you, even if thousands of tour guides think otherwise. It is exclusively your trip; make it unforgettable.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.
Try to avoid trips to the city centre with an almost empty tank; it is extremely difficult to find a petrol station in the city centre; they are all based on the outskirts.
Approximate prices for fuel:
There may be toll roads on your way; you may move around them quickly and without traffic jams. You can pay to use them using cash or card.
For your convenience, we've pinpointed all rental points on the map. In order to see more/less options, adjust the scale of the map.
When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.
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.
Yes, it is possible, but not in all cases. You may find border crossing conditions in the Border Crossing section of the booking terms. To do this, click on the "price details" button.
To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.
All the rumours that travelling across Vienna 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:
If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.
The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Vienna, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:
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.
Cheap car rental in Vienna 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 Vienna on our website by going to the Age Restrictions section.
Local rental companies of Vienna may require you to provide an international driving licence.
By booking a car in advance, you are guaranteed to get the car at the fixed current price. In this case, you may cancel/alternate the order free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, without any penalties.
When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.
To ensure your rental is the most comfortable, we always recommend a full insurance policy. You may do this either on our website or directly at the rental company office.
Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises. Example:

|Mini / Economy||200-400 £|
|Compact / Standard||400-800 £|
