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.

We hired the car to drive from Riga to Kuldiga and the surrounding area. Roads were generally quiet with very little traffic, a pleasure to drive.
