Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Poland, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 12 July 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Poland?

    When considering car hire in Poland, keep in mind that most car companies require you to be at least 21 and have held your driving licence for at least one year. If you're younger than 25, you'll typically incur an additional young driver surcharge on top of the hire fee. You may also be limited to compact or mini cars. If you're not carrying a full EU driving licence, you will need to apply for an International Driving Permit and produce that as well as your home country driving licence. If you're planning on crossing the border with one of the car hires in Poland, you will need to purchase Green Card Insurance. You cannot travel to Albania, Belarus, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Russia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine or Yugoslavia with your hired car.

  • What are the rules for driving in Poland?

    Driving a car hire in Poland means you need to be aware of current road regulations. To start with, traffic travels on the right-hand side of the road in Poland and passes on the left, unless you need to pass a tram, which is always done on the right. Keep in mind when driving a car hire in Poland that you must give way to public transport vehicles. If you have a child under the age of 12 or shorter than 150 cm, it's obligatory for them to be in a car seat in the rear of the car. Poland has strict rules when it comes to drinking and driving, with a legal blood alcohol limit of 0.025% that is heavily enforced. Polish speed limits generally depend on the weight or type of vehicle you're driving, although the speed limit in built-up areas is 50 kph (31 mph) for all vehicles. If you're on the highway/motorway, the speed limit is 140 kph (87 mph) for cars and motorbikes, while bigger vehicles must stay under 80 kph (50 mph). If you're on a dual carriageway expressway, the speed limit will be 120 kph (75 mph) for cars and bikes, while 80 kph (50 mph) is the speed limit for everybody else. Roads outside built-up areas other than these will usually be 90 kph (56 mph) for bikes and cars and 70 kph (43 mph) for other vehicles.

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

    Choosing the right car hire in Poland depends on your needs. If you're planning on travelling with the family and going on long journeys, consider SUV or 4x4 hire cars. Most of the roads in Poland are wide compared to other EU countries, so bigger vehicles work. If you're under 25, you may be limited in the type of car you can access; consider a cheap car hire in Poland like the Volkswagen Polo or Golf. If you're only planning on driving within the city with your car hire in Poland, you can get away with almost anything. It’s worth checking out some of the mini or compact models.

  • Which car hire company is considered to be the best in Poland?
