Top tips for renting a car in Estonia

  • During the day, you must drive with dipped lights (the lights between your sidelights and the main beams). If you are visiting Estonia between the months of December and March, you will need to fit your rental car with winter tires. You must also take care on inter-city highways during the night, as they can be a popular spot for wandering moose.
  • Estonia has strict rules about car seats. Any child younger than 12 years old or not tall enough to use a seat belt must use a suitable child safety seat. A child under the age of 12 cannot sit in the front seat unless they are using a child seat. When you book your rental car in Estonia, it is a good idea to also rent a child restraint. These will be required once you leave the airport.
  • In the event that you want to see neighboring European countries, you may want to cross Estonia’s borders. You will need to check with your car rental company for the specific conditions for your vehicle and crossing borders. You will be able to drive into Latvia, Russia, and Lithuania for an additional fee. Certain countries require a permit for foreign cars crossing into their country.
  • Estonia has an extensive road network, although there are few major highways. If you take the "Via Baltica", you will travel southwest from the capital of Tallin through Parnu to Riga, Latvia, while the "Via Estonia" will take you southeast from Tallin to the Russian border. Drive along the "Via Hansa" highway that runs parallel to the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland; this highway leads to St. Petersburg and Narva.
