Currently, the cheapest month to rent a car at Kaunas Airport is February. The most expensive time to rent a car is August. The cheapest prices for each month are shown above, but prices will vary based on availability, how far out you book your rental car, and of course, car type.
For car hire in Kaunas, you’ll need to be at least 21 and have a full valid UK driving licence, as part of EU policy. An International Driving Permit is not required. Most companies also require a second form of photo ID, so bring your passport with you. Also check with the individual company whether you need to have held your licence for a minimum period to book hire cars in Kaunas. You may also need to be 25 or older to book passenger van hire or luxury car hire in Kaunas, which again depends on individual hire car company policies.
Some tips on traffic laws for car hire in Kaunas can be useful to know in advance. You’ll drive on the right in Lithuania, which is the main difference compared to the UK. The speed limits are higher than those in the UK, too. You can drive in built-up areas at 50 km/h (about 31 mph) and from 70-90 km/h (roughly 43-56 mph) on non-urban roads. On the larger motorways, the speed limit is 130 km/h (about 81 mph). However, this is reduced to 110 km/h (about 68 mph) if you hire cars in Kaunas during winter. The alcohol limit for driving is quite strict, at 0.04%; however, if you have less than two years’ driving experience, it’s 0.02%.
You want something versatile for car hire in Kaunas, as Lithuania offers a great mix of historic cities and towns and scenic countryside – it’s not known as "the pearl of the Baltic" without reason. Consequently, a compact SUV will be a great choice for Kaunas car hire, allowing you to deal with country roads and urban streets with equal aplomb. Some of the towns have narrow, old streets, though, so if you’re based in one, rather take advantage of economy car hire and get a compact city car hire in Kaunas. Tour groups can book a passenger van hire or get a large MPV.
If you’ve opted for Kaunas car hire, be aware that it can sometimes be challenging to find parking in the city centre, so you’ll find a space quicker if you park a bit on the outskirts. It’s also cheaper, as on-street parking here comes with a price tag. It costs about Lt3 (£0.75) per hour in the downtown area and roughly Lt1-2 (£0.25-0.50) outside of it. This makes it even easier to enjoy cheap car hire in Kaunas overall. The city is also very walkable, so if you’re only going a short distance, you can leave your hire car in the hotel car park, too.
