Top tips for renting a car in Austria

  • If you rent a car in Austria, you can drive across international boundaries, but you are not allowed to drive a rental car into Eastern Europe. You can hop across the border into Germany, and while most rental car agencies will charge you for doing so, there are a few that do not charge extra.
  • Parking areas in Austria are called Blue Zones and are designated by marked blue lines on the road. Each of these Blue Zones has a three-hour parking limit, and you must purchase a parking disc and display it while you are away. These discs are available at convenience stores, banks or from the electronic machine that dispenses discs (if there is a machine in the area).
  • In Austria, "one-way car rental" is permitted, which means that you do not have to return the rental car to the place where you picked it up. But there may be restrictions on the certain types of vehicles that are allowed (e.g., luxury cars); so, if you intend to use this option, be sure to check with your rental agency before making any selections.
  • Many picturesque sights in Austria, such as the Krimml Waterfalls and the Hohensalzburg Castle, are found high in the mountains. For this reason, it’s not a bad idea to rent an SUV if these attractions are on your itinerary, especially when traveling during the winter months, when snow and ice can impact the journey. The law also requires snow chains on at least two tires during the cold season.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Austria for $55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Austria at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Austria are around 36% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Mini rental cars in Austria are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average
