Car hires in Vienna: practical information

Where to rent a car in Vienna

Vienna is one of the most popular cities in Europe. It’s famous for its coffee houses and the waltz. Whether you visit during Christmas or the summer months, Vienna will not disappoint. If you’re interested in seeing more than the city centre, consider a rent car in Vienna.

A Vienna car hire city centre will do the trick. Europcar, Hertz, Avis, Denzeldrive and LaudaMotion are all located in the city centre. Make sure you compare rates before departure to find the best deals.

Driving in Vienna: parking and other tips

It’s pretty rare to find free parking in Vienna’s city centre so best to keep your rental car parked in a lot either near your hotel in Vienna or outside the tourist area. Be careful when parking on the street: a yellow zig-zag line on the side of the road means no parking.

Lake Neusiedl

Lake Neusiedl

In the summertime, there’s nothing better than a day out at the lake. You can cross the lake by ferry or take a bike tour around it. You can also easily enjoy a drive around the lake, so you have more time to swim and windsurf. Don’t miss the small historic towns nearby, Rust in particular is popular for its storks!
