Top tips for hiring a car in Poland

  • When you drive in Poland, you must always wear your seatbelts in the front and back seats of your car. You must also have your driving documents with you, as well as your passport, a first-aid kit, a hazard warning reflective triangle, and a fire extinguisher whenever you’re driving.
  • The law in Poland requires that children under the age of 12 or shorter than 1.5 m (5 ft) require child car seats. A child seat must be used for infants and children between the ages of nine months and four years old. Children four to 12 must use a booster seat. Therefore, you will either need to bring your own car seat with you or rent one from your car hire agency, as your child will need to be seated in a safety restraint once you leave the airport.
  • On your travels around Poland, you will notice white and bronze signs that indicate tourist attractions and interesting places to visit. You could rent a four-wheel drive and head to Stolowe Gory to experience its mountains and picturesque terrain, 119 km (74 mi) outside of Wroclaw. If you would prefer to drive around Krakow and see Poland’s oldest Wawel Cathedral, you should opt for a compact vehicle.
  • If you want to explore Poland’s neighboring countries, you may be able to cross the border with your rental car. Provided that you have permission from your car hire agency, you will be able to cross the borders of most Western European countries; however, you cannot take your rental car to some non-EU countries, including Albania, Bosnia, and Russia. You will need to have your ‘green card’ insurance before crossing the border, which costs about 26,36 zł ($7).
  • Book your car hire in Poland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Poland are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average
