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.

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). Our flexible cancellation policy also remains exactly the same.

Krakow Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Krakow Airport and then drive to the city center! Unlike Warsaw and many other European cities, Krakow suffered relatively little damage during World War II. So make sure you visit its beautiful and well-preserved Old Town—and impressive buildings like St. Florian’s Gate and Wawel Castle, too. Go for a leisurely stroll through Planty Park (it encircles the old town) or take a boat ride on the Vistula River and enjoy the cityscapes from onboard.

Drive your rental to the Kazimierz district to learn about the city’s Jewish history and see its beautiful old synagogues. Then head to a restaurant for a meal of oscypek cheese made in the Tatra Mountains, żurek soup, and pierogi dumplings. Don’t miss out on delicious Krakow street foods like zapiekanka, either!

Krakow’s a great destination, but the surrounding area has even more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can drive to the nearby mountains and into Slovakia, head north to Warsaw and coastal Gdansk, or even visit the neighboring Czech Republic or Ukraine. Picking up your rental car at Krakow Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your vacation today!

Krakow Airport is also known as John Paul II International Airport Kraków–Balice and Międzynarodowy Port Lotniczy im. Jana Pawła II Kraków–Balice.
