KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Warsaw

  • Discover everything the capital of Poland has to offer and rent a car to obtain ultimate flexibility and time management. Whether whizzing through the city or venturing out into the magnificent landscape of Poland, with a car, every destination can be reached in your own time, whenever and wherever you need.
  • For travelers landing at Warsaw’s International Chopin airport, renting a car will get them to the city center in about half an hour. The car hire services are located in Terminal A in the arrivals hall and include companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz. Signs show the way out of the airport to the city center and the easiest route is via the DW634.
  • The roads in Warsaw are somewhat well-maintained but can still have cracks and potholes, also due to the cold winters. Especially within the city center, streets can be narrow, and navigating them can be a challenge for drivers used to broad and well-lit streets. Despite the rather poor road conditions, Polish drivers have a reputation for driving very fast and accidents are not so uncommon, so, regardless of how other people drive, travelers should simply adhere to the speed limit and adapt to road and weather conditions.
  • Speaking of weather, Poland has very cold winters that can bring lots of snow, sleet, and ice. When visiting Warsaw in winter, it is pivotal to ensure the hire car is appropriately equipped and to add snow chains, if necessary (note, however, they can only be put on when there is snow on the street). Travelers should also note that headlights are compulsory, even during the daytime, and failing to have them on can result in a fine.
  • Book your car hire in Warsaw at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Warsaw are around 27% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Warsaw

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Warsaw?

    Travelers intending to mainly explore the city of Warsaw should opt for a compact car that can fit through the narrow lanes and into parking spots easily. If venturing out into the landscape, an SUV or minivan are also good choices. A 4-wheel drive car is a good option in the winter or when planning to drive mainly through the countryside.

  • What’s the speed limit in Warsaw?

    Always adhere to the speed limits posted on street signs. General regulations allow 50 kph (31 mph) in residential areas, but only 20 (12 mph) in school areas and zones with lots of pedestrian traffic. On express roads (which usually have one to two lanes going in one direction), 100 to 110 kph is allowed (62-68 mph) and highways allow up to 130 kph (80 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Warsaw?

    Despite having narrow lanes, some streets in Warsaw have very broad sidewalks on which smaller cars can be parked half on the sidewalk, half on the road. These parking lots, however, are always indicated with a sign, so check beforehand if this is really a designated parking spot. Parking is usually metered and coins or cards can be used to feed the machine. Alternatively, there are parking lots or P+Rs like the Park and Ride Car Park Metro Ursynów in the suburbs of Warsaw, where cars can be parked for a longer period of time.

  • How much is the price of fuel in Warsaw?

    The average price of fuel in Warsaw is R110,20 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between R1 322 and R1 763, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Warsaw?

Cons:

HORRIBLE experience. showed up and they wouldn't give me a car without an international drivers license. said it was clearly stated in the rental agreement. it was not. also lied and said it was illegal to drive in Poland as an American without an int. license. That said, they still offered to let me (illegally?) have the car if I paid the full insurance rate through sixt of $42 per day which would raise the price of my rental $600. screw off. total scam. had to pay cancellation fee and first three days of rental. criminal. went across to helpful gentlemen at Europcar and rented a car at the onsite, no reservation, inevitably high price that was still cheaper than what Sixt wanted to charge me. they laughed and said they didn't know about any requirement for international drivers license in Poland but wished us a pleasant stay. Poland was delightful. Sixt was garbage. I will never rent from them anywhere, ever. Also will dissuade anyone from using them.

Pros:

Nothing, I did not get the BMW. Car without insurance, cost $480. They offered me insurance for another $650. I did not want to pay the insurance. If I see the car , it has more damages then was reported. I did not take the car and I lost my $480, in 20 minutes.If you want to loose money go to Sixt

Cons:

Take a look closely to your competitors. Next door I got a similar car for $400 with insurance. I was responsibility only up to $800. Not 100% like at Sixt. Sixt trying sell me the same insurance for another $650. At competition I got it included in the car price!!!!

Had a great experience with renting a car from them. Wonderful staff who offered to pick me up, served coffee, and were quick to respond if I had any questions. When I first booked the car I was very hesitant since the international brand "Economy car" has some terrible operating staff in other countries, but those here in Warsaw Poland are amazing, so don't hesitate renting a car from them.

Convenient location. Clean and well maintained car. Friendly service. Only suggestion is to make its precise location clearer: during off hours, you need to use the security phone to call the security personnel so they will open the door, and then you proceed up one flight of stairs toward the back; there are no signs.

Pick up was a bit weird , the employee told me that they have no office at the airport. So we had to drive about 10 minutes . Then we did the paperwork inside the car and he left. So we did not need to leave the airport where my family was waiting. It took us about 35 minutes at all.. Car was almost new, that was nice . But it jad all season tires, so it was very noisy and we could not hear each other

The Enterprise staff member in Bydgoszcz did not know I was returning the car at the specified place and time. (I called in advance.) He stated that this was a last minute reservation (which it was not) and tried to obfuscate and justify his lack of preparedness. My suggestion is for the company actually to train their people in dealing with public and to incentivize staff members to look at IT systems showing drop offs and pick ups well in advance.

They are asking deposit in the counter before taking the keys of car. There is 2 options, 8000 PLN deposit, or you have to buy 400 PLN insurance, and then 500 deposit. It is another way to take people's money. Company is basically forcing you to pay another 400 PLN in that way. Pathetic.

Like the effort agent was putting forth to get cars but it also took about 30 minutes to get the car because she was the only one there. After pick up car was not washed outside or cleaned inside. Before departure found washing fluid leaking from the car. I was told the manager would call me to find a replacement but never did. After leaving with the car AdBlue (some liquid you need for diesel engine) tank was empty and I had to pay to get it added at a gas station. Still waiting for a refund. Car worked great for the road trip.

Cons:

I paid for automatic; got a manual transmission car. The front desk - uniquely unfriendly - lacking serious customer service, basic communication skills, required International Drivers license. We did not have it, so they charged us additional 25o dollars for the duration of the rental. This is just beyond awful. I have never had this kind of negative experience.
