Latvia car hire information

Not many of Latvia’s traffic laws are unique, but it is worth reading the rules of the road before setting off in your rental car to explore the beautiful beaches and forests of Latvia. Speeds limits in Latvia are relatively low in urban areas, and increase a bit on gravel roads outside an urban area. They are increasing more on rural tarmacked roads, and on designated highways. It is better to keep the speed a bit below the maximum limit unless a road sign expressly permits it. Latvia has summer and winter speed limits on its designated highways, where the speed limit rises on highways between March and November. Talk to your hire car provider about the priority from the right rule, i.e. yielding to traffic joining the road from your right as you drive along on the right-hand side of the road. Please pay attention to traffic approaching from the right as it may have the right of way. Be aware that you cannot park your hire car on any street with tramlines as you will be issued a parking fine. Always call your car hire company to let them know if you are issued with a ticket.

Latvian car rental agencies will demand a full driving licence and a valid passport as an absolute minimum. Some of them may ask for an international driving licence for residents of countries outside the EU, although that is not a legal requirement for UK nationals who want to rent a car in Latvia. Some companies also require a printout of your car hire booking confirmation (describing it as a ‘voucher’). They will want to take a fully refundable deposit, and you can only use a credit card, but they do accept debit cards for the payment of hiring rental cars.  When you rent a car, you will find T&Cs differ between car hire agencies, so click through and read them carefully. One example is the driver’s age. Most hire car agencies specify an age range of 21 to 75, but some will provide rental cars to drivers as young as 19. While some car rental companies are flexible, they charge supplements for young or elderly drivers.

Latvia is sparsely populated but has relatively few roads, and some of them are ‘unmaintained’ and therefore often impassable, meaning that traffic density can be higher than you might expect. The busiest road is the A2 highway heading east out of Riga towards the Estonian border. It splits just before the town of Sigulda, and both routes to the border crossing points are busy. The A8 highway is a direct route for traffic coming from Lithuania and heading to Riga and so is also busy. Both roads are just highways, not three-lane motorways and so traffic jams and queues are common. Logistics is an important industry in Latvia so expect to see a lot of heavy lorries crossing the country to and from Poland, Russia, Belarus, Estonia and Lithuania.

Once you leave Riga, you will see why rental cars are an important part of any visit to Latvia, starting with the two coastal roads leading to the Cape of Kolka. Approach Kolka from the West by driving along the P124 from trendy Ventspils. Follow the Baltic Sea coast with its endless sandy beaches and ice-blue waters along gravelly roads through forests of birch and pine, or approach Kolka from the East along the Gulf of Riga coast, passing through a necklace of little seaside towns. The A13, also marked as the E262, passes right by Raznas National Park in the South of the country, taking you through forest clearings, open heathland and stands of pine trees. Break your hire car journey with a visit to unspoilt Lake Raznas at the centre of the park.
