Top tips for hiring a car in Albania

  • When traveling to Albania, it is always advisable to rent a car, especially if you intend to enjoy long drives outsides of the major cities. It is a mountainous Balkan country, and many of the roads are better suited for a four-wheel drive than for a standard model. This is particularly true if you travel along the Llogara Pass that connects the Albanian southern coast with the northern part of the country.
  • Reservations to rent a car in Albania must be made at least one day in advance, and the vehicle must be held for at least 24h. You are also allowed an hour after the expiration of the rental agreement for returns; otherwise, you will be charged for an extra day, and all insurances and services will be included in the rental price.
  • If you are traveling with young children and require a car seat, the cost is anywhere from 10 € (about $11.50) per day to a maximum of 40 € (about $45) per rental. You can get a GPS system for an additional 10 € ($11) per day or up to 60 € ($70) per rental. Roadside assistance is free 24h a day, 7 days a week in Albania.
  • A valid credit card is required to rent a car in Albania because debit cards are not accepted for security deposits. The card must have sufficient funds to cover the cost of the rental period. Drivers are responsible for any traffic fines, and you will be subject to further surcharges from the rental agency. Special charges may also be levied for any dirty interiors, so you should perform some housekeeping before you return it.
  • Book your rental car in Albania at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Albania are around 12% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy rental cars in Albania are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Albania?

    Like in most European countries, Albanians drive on the right side of the road, which is the same as the United States. Road conditions will vary, especially outside the city limits, where elevation gets higher. The use of mobile phones while driving is strictly forbidden, and as always, make sure you have all your documents before you set out on the road.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Albania?

    You must be at least 21 and no older than 70 to rent a car in Albania. Drivers under the age of 21 and over 70 will incur a daily surcharge of approximately 3 € ($3.50). Additionally, you must hold either a valid European Union license, an international license or a local license for at least one year at the time you make your reservation.

  • How much does petrol cost in Albania?

    The average price for one liter of petrol across 42 European countries was about 1.48 € ($1.68) in early June, 2019, compared to 1.63 € ($1.85) in Albania, making the country above average in Europe. However, European cars are smaller and more fuel-efficient in general, so you can get great mileage from a single fill-up.

  • What are the speed limits in Albania?

    Speed limits vary according to the type of road, from 110 km/h (68 mph) on freeways and 90 km/h (56 mph) on expressways to between 40 and 80 km/h (25-50 mph) within various city limits. There are usually signs posted regarding speed limits, and these should be observed. Mopeds, caravans and other vehicles may have different regulations or standards, so it’s a good idea to check with your rental agency about vehicle-specific laws.
