Important information about Krakow car hire

Can I drive out of Poland with a rental car from Krakow?

Car hire in Krakow will allow you to travel to many European countries in your hired car. Some of the car hire companies that allow you to travel outside of Poland, are Avis, Thrifty, Budget, Hertz, National, Alamo, Sixt, Enterprise and Europcar. Most companies in Krakow will not allow you to take your hire car into Russia; however, if you do want to take your hire car into Russia, you can ask for special permission from your car hire company. It is good to remember that you might need to pay a border crossing fee; however, there are some companies that would not require you to pay a fee. This does, however, depend on the country. Electric car hire and luxury car hire in Krakow may not allow for travel across the border with these vehicles; there are, however, many other car types that you can choose from to travel across Europe.

Can you hire a car in Krakow without a credit card?

Car hire in Krakow allows you to pay with a debit card or with a cash payment. Not all car hire companies allow for this, so it is best to search for information before you arrive. You may need to fill in special documents to hire a car this way, and an additional payment may also be needed. This is money that the car hire company will keep until you return the hire car. Some car hire companies may only allow you to hire out certain cars when choosing this option. This will most likely be in the form of cheap car rentals in Krakow. There might also be an extra insurance amount you may have to pay, and this amount will differ depending on the type of car that you hire.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Krakow?

Krakow follows the same driving laws as the rest of Poland and most EU countries. In Krakow, you will drive your car on the right-hand side of the road; all passengers must wear their seat belts, this is in both the back and the front seats; and if you have a child that is under the age of four, they will require a child seat. Small cars are allowed to park half on the sidewalk and half on the road, but if you are in a bigger car, this is not allowed. There are a couple of tolls throughout the country, these are mainly on the biggest highways. Drinking and driving laws in Krakow are very strict, with only 0.02 milligrams of alcohol per millilitre of blood being the highest you can legally drive with. Due to this strict limit, it is advised to not have a drink before getting behind the wheel. If you are caught drinking and driving, you will either get a fine or have points put on your licence; if it is well over the limit, there is the possibility of jail time.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Krakow?

Car hire in Krakow requires that you have three main documents: your passport, your driver’s licence and your debit/credit card or cash payment. It is also important to have some form of insurance (and proof of this with you) while you are driving. There is a possibility that you may need an international driver’s permit or licence; this is something you will almost certainly need if you are from a country that drives on the left-hand side of the road. If you are unsure about whether you need this document, you can check with your car hire company. You need to be at least 21 to hire a car in Krakow, and you will generally have to pay an extra amount if you are under 25, as this will cover the young driver’s insurance. Krakow car hire often allows for only specific types of cars to be driven by young drivers.
