Car hires in Warsaw: practical information

Where to rent a car in Warsaw

Planning a visit to Poland? Start by searching for cheap flights to Warsaw, the country’s buzzing capital city. While you’re comparing flight offers, don’t forget to also arrange a Warsaw car hire for your trip. You can pick up a rent car from Warsaw Airport, choosing from Avis, Budget, Thrifty, Europcar, Express, Hertz, Panek and Sixt.

It’s also possible to rent a car from Warsaw city centre. Polish companies will almost always offer cheaper rates but may have fewer English-speaking staff members and options. Check out Gromada Rent at Hotel Gromada or Local Rent-A-Car.

Driving in Warsaw: parking and other tips

Warsaw’s streets aren’t as well maintained as in Western Europe so be wary of potholes as you’re driving. It would be wise to get some sort of insurance against damage on your rental car, even if you’re just driving around the city!

Parking on Warsaw’s streets is paid using coins at ticket machines. They’ll spit out a receipt that you’ll need to display on your dashboard. It’s ideal however to park your rental car in a guarded car park, for security reasons, or at your Warsaw hotel overnight.
