This section will provide you will the piece of advice on car rental Vienna, the capital of Austria. Take it into account in order not to face up with difficulties when hiring a car in this city.

Vienna is the capital of Austria. This city is famous far beyond the country. Vienna amazes everyone with its history and architecture. That is why the city is always full of travelers from all continents. Visiting and seeing not the official but real Vienna is a dream of millions. For your convenience and freedom of moving around the city and around the country on the whole, you are recommended to hire a car.

One of the best variants is to choose a car rental company among those ones which rent out cars at the Schwechat airport located not far from Vienna. This is the main gateway of the country. The airport has just three terminals. They are enormous. Terminal 1A was opened not long ago. It serves the flights arranged by low-cost companies. That is why the passenger flow has increased. It is better to start looking for a necessary car within two months before the start of the planned trip and sometimes even earlier. If you have decided which car you wish to hire beforehand, you can find a car of any class starting from mini cars and ending by luxury ones.

In order to hire a car, you need to have the international driving license, a bank card with a sum of money sufficient to be frozen as a deposit and written car rental agreement. You will be provided with the car keys together with the documents. It would not be odd to get acquainted with these documents. The following nuances take place:

  • If the driver is younger than 25 years old and his driving experience is from 1 till 2 years, the company can increase the rental cost by adding the ‘young driver charge’ to it.
  • The question of the necessity to install additional equipment and child seats should be discussed beforehand so that you will not lose precious holiday time when receiving the car.

As a rule, the rental cost includes the basic insurance packages from the possible car theft, from the damage to third parties and from the damage caused to the rental car. In Vienna, people drive cars carefully. That is why you can form an insurance policy with a franchise which can be from 800 till 1500 Euro. Another variant lies in purchasing a full insurance package with a franchise. This will let you not think about anything.

In Vienna, cars, which are different by their small sizes and low fuel consumption, are the most popular ones. However, if you wish, you can rent a beautiful BMW, luxurious Mercedes, Porsche and other car brands.

Road traffic regulations and fines for their violation

Traffic in Vienna is rather difficult. This can be explained by the sizes of the city itself as well as by the number of travelers who wish to visit it every day. According to the regulations in force on the whole territory of Austria, it is forbidden to drive a car with a speed of more than 50 km/h in the city. Other limitations are established by the restrictive signs installed at some places. You must not make more than 100 km/h outside the city. The maximum speed allowed on expressways is 130 km/h.

Important! If you see a school bus standing at the bus stop with the turned on direction lights, you are not allowed to overtake it. You will have to wait until the driver lets the children get off the bus and then lets other children get on the bus.

 

The fines for the violations of road traffic and parking regulations are significant. That is why you had better not violate these regulations. The fact that a decree and citation can be issued directly by the policeman is considered to be one of the main peculiarities of this country. In this case, a discount from the sum of the fine is stipulated. If everything mentioned above is translated into the language of figures, it is possible to say like this: the sums of fines depend on the magnitude of the committed offence. It can make up from 21 till 5900 Euro.

Important issues of parking a rental car and filling it with fuel

The price for fuel in Vienna is standard like in the whole country. You needn’t choose where to fill a full tank. There is a chain of fuel stations in the city. There are also small old fuel stations. You are recommended to choose a fuel station using the principle of your own convenience.

  1. The districts, whose numbers are from 1 till 9, offer car parks, where it is possible to park a car on work days. The parking time is limited by two hours. Cars can be parked at these parking lots from 09:00 till 22:00.
  2. The districts, whose numbers are from 12 till 14, as well as district number 17 will offer you to park your car on work days from 09:00 till 19:00. The maximum duration of car park is 3 hours.

All zones where short time parking is allowed are marked with guide arrows and road signs. It is necessary to have a special parking ticket. The cost of parking a car at the garages of Park&Ride format is 3.40 Euro per day. This is extremely convenient. You may not worry about the safety of your car when walking around the city.
