Car hire in Serbia is a great way to see the landlocked country in Central and Southeast Europe. It gives you all the flexibility you need to get around at your own pace with your itinerary. Before you get your hire car in Serbia, you must familiarise yourself with the licensing requirements to ensure you meet the criteria. When looking to hire a car in Serbia, you will be required to have a full, valid driving licence from your country of origin and accompanying valid passport. These two documents will only be valid if you also have an international driving permit. You must have held your licence for at least two years, for it to be acceptable. If you are under 25 years of age, some car hire companies may charge you for being a young driver. This means your car hire rate will be higher and can be even more so if you are looking at a luxury car hire.
When driving your Serbia car hire, take note of the speed limits. In the cities, it is 50 kph, outside of the city, the limit is 80 kph. On the highways, the limit is 120 kph. You must have your headlights turned on during all hours of the day and night. If you are travelling with passengers or alone, seatbelts must be worn at all times. The use of cell phones is not permitted unless the vehicle is fitted with a hands-free car kit. Serbia has one of the strictest alcohol consumption laws in the world. In Serbia, a blood alcohol level of 0.02% constitutes drunk driving. Children must be over 12 years old to be allowed to sit in the front seat of a vehicle. A child under this age must be safely buckled up in an age-appropriate car seat in the back of the vehicle.
Most people interested in car hire in Serbia will want to avoid driving in Belgrade, as the area is known for high volumes of traffic and can be hard to navigate. However, if you do have to drive in the region, you should look at a small or compact automatic vehicle that is easy to handle and light on fuel. Even better would be an electric car hire, which will be cost-efficient for you and beneficial to reducing your carbon footprint, which is notably higher in traffic-heavy areas. Vehicles such as the Skoda Octavia tick these boxes. Exploring outside of the city is best done by rental car, as public transport can be unreliable. Having a car opens up the possibility of visiting destinations like Novi Sad, or the beautiful churches in Sremski Karlovci. For this type of touring, you will be satisfied with something a bit more luxurious and comfortable such as the Audi A6.
