Top tips for renting a car in Latvia

  • One of the benefits of Latvia car rentals is that you enjoy more flexibility when traveling around the country because you don’t have to abide by public transport schedules or wait for cabs. A rental car in Latvia can also be more cost effective than a cab, especially if you are planning on doing a lot of ground travel during your visit.
  • If you are traveling with young children, know that kids under 150 centimeters in height must be in suitable child booster seats for the duration of the journey. You can contact your rental car company to inquire about the availability of booster seats, although there shouldn’t be an issue getting one as an add-on for your journey.
  • While many of the roads in Latvia are paved, there are still some that are gravel roads and not in the best condition. Driving conditions tend to be more precarious the farther you are from populated areas. When you get Latvia car rentals, we therefore suggest you use an SUV if you’re heading into the countryside because it is suitable for a range of surfaces and offers all-wheel-drive capabilities.
  • If you want to get a rental car in Latvia, you may want to use it to cross the border into neighboring Lithuania or Estonia. You will need to pay a surcharge for a cross-border policy to be added to your booking. This will ensure you are permitted to drive in both countries. It’s important you familiarize yourself with the rules of the road and any required documents you might need, as this is likely to vary from country to country.

  • What is driving like in Latvia?

    You should be careful when driving in Latvia, as there is a very high traffic collision rate in the country. You will drive on the right side of the road, which is the same as the U.S. If you are driving during the winter, be careful as roads can get icy and conditions foggy. You should also ask locals about any well-known black ice spots. Drivers are required to have headlights on at all times, even during daylight hours as visibility can deteriorate quickly.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Latvia?

    You need to be at least 21 years of age at most rental car companies; however, some agencies will allow you to rent a car as young as 18. If you are under the age of 25, you will normally face a young driver surcharge and also be restricted on the model and type of the car you can get.

  • How are gas prices in Latvia?

    A gallon of gas is likely to cost around €6.70 ($7) in Latvia, with a liter costing around €1.8 ($1.90). The currency in Latvia is the Euro, which is valued at about the same as the U.S. dollar. One thing that’s worth remembering is that many of the petrol stations are located in the capital city, Riga, so if you’re heading into the countryside, you should ensure that you have enough fuel to complete the journey.

  • What are the speed limits in Latvia?

    The speed limits in Latvia are in kilometers per hour, which is different from the U.S. On urban roads, the maximum speed limit is 50 km/h (31 mph). On rural roads, it’s 90 km/h (56 mph). On a motorway it’s 80 km/h (50 mph). There are mobile and fixed-speed cameras in Latvia. If you’re caught speeding, the car hire agency will automatically charge you for the fine and an administrative fee. It will also pass your information on to the local law enforcement.
