KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Linz

  • Driving a car rental in Linz provides you with the freedom to create your itinerary and travel at your own pace. You can visit multiple attractions in a day, make spontaneous stops, and venture off the beaten path to discover hidden gems. Also, having a car hire allows you to conveniently travel to various destinations, including remote areas and smaller towns that might not be easily accessible by public transportation. With a car, you can easily visit places like the nearby Salzkammergut region, Hallstatt, Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic, and more.
  • The closest airport to Linz, Austria, is Linz Airport (LNZ), also known as Blue Danube Airport. It is located approximately 12 km southwest of the city centre of Linz. Opposite the main airport terminal in car park K1, you will find the airport’s car hire area where you can choose between six major Linz car hire companies, including Avis, Hertz, and Budget.
  • When driving your car rental in Linz, keep in mind that Linz is a major city in Austria, and its roads can experience heavy traffic, especially during peak hours of 7:00 to 8:00 and 16:00 to 17:00. Congestion and traffic jams may occur, leading to potential delays and frustration. Moreover, like any other place, weather conditions can affect driving. During winter, road surfaces may be icy or snowy, and visibility may be reduced.
  • Linz is a pedestrian and cyclist-friendly city, so it is advised to be cautious of pedestrians and cyclists sharing the roads when driving your car hire in Linz. Therefore, always be aware of designated bike lanes and pedestrian crossings. Linz also has a well-developed tram network, and drivers should be attentive to tram lines and signals to avoid accidents with trams, especially if you aren’t used to sharing the roads with trams.
  • Book your rental car in Linz at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

One must be very careful with damages to the auto. You must know it every minor detailed scratch or mark on the car. Upon return they check it with a fine tooth comb and you will be charged for any little scratch not previously noted.

Pros:

Fine car, no issues

Cons:

I ended up making the reservation at a place that was closed when I wanted to pick up the car. I had to then continue with the cab to the airport where the rental location was open. This cost me an extra 20 euros. Update your information on the site correctly so travelers don't have to go through the same frustration and costs as I did.
