Austria car hire information

Driving laws in Austria are quite similar to those of other EU countries and are similar to many driving laws in the UK. However, you should be aware of a few unique driving rules and regulations if you plan to rent a car in Austria. If you're visiting Vienna with your car hire, you should avoid using your horn in the city. Horn use is forbidden in many parts of Vienna and is always illegal if you are in the vicinity of a hospital. It is also very important that you wear your seat belt while driving in Austria. There is an on-the-spot fine for anyone caught without their seat belt on while the vehicle is in motion. This rule also applies to passengers in your vehicle, so you should make sure that anyone travelling with you also wears their seat belts at all times.

Car rentals are legally available to anyone over the age of 18 in Austria. However, many car rental companies operate a minimum age policy and will not hire cars to anyone below 25. To hire car rentals in Austria, you must have a British photocard driving licence, not a paper licence. If you still have a British paper licence, you will need an International Driver’s Permit to drive legally in Austria. However, it is possible to upgrade your paper licence to a photocard licence in the UK before you travel. When you collect your car rental, you should also make sure that you take a valid form of government-issued ID with you, such as a passport. You should also check with your car hire agency in advance to ensure that they do not require an International Driver’s Permit.

If you plan to drive in major cities in Austria, such as Vienna or Salzburg, you will generally find a lot of traffic on the roads. You may also face some heavy congestion, especially during the morninghours and the evening rush hours. Try to avoid driving at these times if you are in a hurry or don’t want to get stuck in traffic. Parking is also limited in Austrian cities. If you plan to use car rentals to explore Vienna, it is a good idea to park in District one, as this has a high number of underground car parks. Rural and mountain roads in Austria are generally quieter. If you plan to drive your car hire into the mountain regions, be aware that many of the roads are single lanes. There is also no right-of-way in operation on these routes, so it is up to drivers to decide who will have to reverse or pull over to let the other one pass.

Austria has some stunning mountain roads with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. If you want to make the most of these views, why not take a drive up the Grossglockner High Alpine Road? This route is the highest mountain road in Austria and reaches heights above sea level. From here you can take in the amazing views of nearby mountains and lakes. You can also stop at the Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Höhe information point and visitor’s centre along the way. Visitors should be aware that this road is a toll road and often gets very busy during tourist season. We recommend that you set out early if you want to drive this route, as this will help you avoid traffic. Another scenic spot popular with visitors is the Nockalm Road through Austria’s largest pine forest. This winding route offers spectacular scenery and is only open to visitors from May through to October to protect against adverse weather conditions.
