Car Rental in Austria

The renter must provide a credit card and driving license. You can rent a car for around 25 Euros a day. These are just guidelines, so do check with the car hire company to clarify the cost and documentation needed.

Speed limits are in kilometres per hour, and are as follows:

  • Motorways: 130kph/80mph
  • Open roads:100kph/62mph
  • Urban areas: 50kph/31mph

Austrians drive on the right-hand side of the road.

Be wary in the winter months as roads can be icy and even blocked with snow. Traffic is fairly mild, but can be heavy if crossing the border towards Hungary, Slovakia or the Czech Republic. Car use is sometimes restricted when air pollution is high.

Passing on the right is allowed only on one-way streets or when passing trams or when passing a vehicle that is indicating/turning left. You are not allowed to cross a solid yellow centre line.

If travelling by road to Vienna, drivers should be aware that motorway vignettes are required, on all Austrian motorways. They are available at all border crossings and petrol stations. Furthermore there is legal requirement to have snow tyres fitted to all vehicles from 1 November to 15 April.

Travelling in Austria:

Vienna has very efficient trams, buses, underground and suburban trains. Tickets can be bought on buses and trams and at underground stations. 24 hour tickets, 3 day tickets and period tickets are available.

For further information, please contact

• The national rail network: ÖBB Austrian Federal Railways

• Westbahn: For train tickets to Salzburg and bus tickets to Graz and Klagenfurt

• Wiener Linien (public transport within Vienna)
