Warsaw Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital of Poland, Warsaw is mostly known as a busy and modern metropolis with an active cultural life. But while its historical charms might not be as immediately recognizable as those of, say, Krakow or Wroclaw, it also has plenty in that department that can impress one. Whichever side of this fascinating city you decide to explore, you’re likely to have a good time. Here are three suggestions for your trip:

  • Royal Castle. One of the most famous buildings in Poland, the 400-year-old Royal Castle was completely destroyed during the Second World War but was rebuilt in the 1980s and as such is one of the main symbols of Polish history and resilience. A large palatial complex with a beautiful interior and large collection of art, it is one of the most impressive places to visit in the city.
  • Palace of Culture and Science. While it continues to split opinion at home and abroad, the massive Palace of Culture and Science is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable buildings in Warsaw. Whether you love it or hate it, the 237 m (778 ft) high example of socialist architecture is a notable relic of its era. Nowadays, the palace provides home to a multiplex cinema and a number of theaters and museums. And needless to say, the views from the top platform are breathtaking.
  • Museums. As any large European capital should, Warsaw is also home to a diverse array of high-quality museums. While it would not be possible to mention all of them, some of the highlights include the Warsaw Uprising Museum, Museum of the History of Polish Jews, Marie Curie Museum, National Museum, and Heritage Interpretation Center. Visit the homepage of Warsaw's official tourism board to learn more.

FAQ

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Poland?
You must be at least 19 years old to rent a car in Poland. Note that many companies at Warsaw Airport do not rent to those under 23 and those that do charge an additional fee to younger drivers. Make sure to use your age when searching to see what the total price would be for you.
Can I travel with the car outside to Belarus or Ukraine?
No, it is not possible to take any car rented in Poland to Belarus or Ukraine.
Can I travel with the car to Poland's European Union neighbors?
Yes, you can travel to Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Lithuania with a rental car. There is usually an additional fee and you must let the rental company know before your rental or at the rental desk.
Do I need an International Driving Permit in Poland?
If your driver's license is not from the European Union, you will likely need to have an International Driving Permit in addition to your driver's license. Though you may see reports of companies not checking this, it is better to be on the safe side rather than being denied the car due to not having one.
If I rent a car at Warsaw Airport during winter, will it have winter tires?
As winter or all-season tires are required in Poland during winter, all companies equip their cars with one or the other. You can use the winter tires filter to be absolutely sure. Snow chains are also usually available, for an additional cost, if you plan to travel into the mountains.
Will I have to pay for mileage or does the rental include unlimited mileage?
Almost all of the rental cars at Warsaw Airport include unlimited kilometers, though you should keep in mind that "unlimited" is usually limited to some reasonable number (if you don't plan to be behind the while ever hour that you have the car, you will not have to worry at all).

Warsaw itself is not a very car friendly city and it is very hard to drive around and park. Outside of Warsaw is much better and quieter, but a lot of roads are heavily rutted and long sections of roadworks on main arterial roads.

Warsaw like most other cities Warsaw can be fast paced, busy and fairly spread out. There is plenty to do and see from historical sites to amazing shopping centers. The food is amazing. Be certain to understand the road laws and signs. Use a sat nav or google maps. It is an amazing city with plenty to offer. I highly recommend visiting any of the old towns across Poland. My fiancee is Polish so we visit quite often. We drive across to Lublin and the surrounding areas. Look for ski slopes in winter. We go to Stok Chrzanów, the staff are amazing and the amenities are second to none.

I used the car as a quick mean of transportation to another city called Poznan. For a tourist I don't recommend getting a car as the public transportation is more efficient in Warsaw specifically unless you are in the surrounding areas. Traffic in the city is pretty bad and parking not readily available. Poznań where I travelled to, a car makes more sense but most touristic areas are conglomerated and within walking distance of each other.
