COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Riga Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Riga Airport! Then drive to the city center, find a parking spot, and start walking. Head to Old Town to see the House of the Blackheads, Dome Cathedral, and so much more. Check out the Art Nouveau buildings around Alberta Street. And visit museums like the Latvian National Museum of Art and the Museum of Riga’s History and Navigation. 

Explore the Central Market; then head southeast to the Moscow District. This part of town used to have a bad rap, but it’s up and coming now; full of beautiful old buildings and parks, it’s a great place to learn about Riga’s Jewish and Old Believer communities. On the other side of the Daugava River, the Āgenskalns neighborhood is another gem with its wooden architecture, markets, and active cultural scene. 

Riga’s a great destination, but Latvia has even more to offer, so why not extend your stay? With a longer term car rental deal you can visit the countryside in Vidzeme and Latgale, head to beautiful Kuldīga and the windy beaches in Liepāja, or explore nature in the Gauja and Slītere national parks. You can even drive to nearby Lithuania or Estonia, or all the way to St. Petersburg. Picking up your rental car at Riga Airport and dropping it off in a different city is easy. Start planning your adventure today!

Riga Airport is also known as Starptautiskā lidosta Rīga.
