In Poland, cars drive on the right side of the road and pass on the left. Speed limits in Poland are a little bit complex. In the city, you're allowed to drive 50km/h and 60km/h from 11 pm to 5 am. Outside the city the maximum speed is 90km/h, but 100km/h if the lanes are separated. Speed limits are between 120km/h and 140km/h on the highway so overall you're best of keeping an eye out on the round signs with a red circle on the side of the road. Dipped headlights or daytime running lights are compulsory for all vehicles at all times
All of Auto Europe's hire vehicles in Poland include Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Insurance. Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Insurance releases the client from full financial responsibility for the vehicle in case of an accident or theft. In most cases, the client will still be responsible for an insurance excess of some sort when collision and theft are purchased. Most car rental suppliers will offer insurance locally which can reduce the collision and theft excess if the client wishes to do so.
The capital and also the largest city in Poland is Warsaw, located on the Vistula River in the central east part of the country. Dating back to the 9th century, the city was almost completely destroyed in World War II yet managed a rapid recovery and has kept much of its original history and charm. To experience the charm of the city, park your rental car in the area known as Old Town, and head off to see the sights. Follow the Royal Route from Old Town, through to Wilanow Palace, which is now a museum.
From Warsaw, head south and visit Krakow, which was the capital of Poland until the end of the 16th century. A city rich in historic sites and amazing architecture, Krakow is a must for anyone visiting the country. To get a great view of the city, drive to the Town Hall Tower. Built in the 13th century, the tower has an observation deck on the top floor which is open to the public and provides an amazing view of the area.
Apart from the historical value, many visitors come to Poland for the vast nature and amazing scenery throughout the country. Drive to the south-east corner of the country, and visit Bieszczady National Park. Home to many rare animals such as European bison and lynx, the park has amazing forests to explore, particularly scenic during winter when they are covered in snow.
During summer months in Poland, both tourists and locals alike head to the lakes and beaches to swim and unwind. Head north from Bieszczady in your car hire, towards the towns of Olsztyn, Elk and Mikolajki. These towns are located in the Masuria Lakeland region of the country, where you can find over 1000 lakes. Fishing, boating, swimming and kayaking are all popular here, definitely worth checking out during summer.
You must be at least 18 years old to rent a car in Poland, although the age may vary by car category. You must have held your licence for a minimum of 1 year. A Young Drivers Surcharge may be required for drivers under the age of 25. Some suppliers may have a maximum age limit.
Autostradas A1, A2 and A4 are toll highways. You can pay the toll due at the toll gates where the local currency, U.S. dollars and Euros are accepted. Some places accept credit cards as well. You can also choose the option to prepay toll with ViaToll. Your supplier might have an electronic toll tag, talk to your supplier when you pick up your hire car.

There are a few things to keep in mind, if you plan on visiting more countries than just Poland. You will need to inform us of the countries you intend to visit at the time of booking and when you pick up your rental car. In general, travel across borders is permitted to west European nations. Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel in to certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place, especially if you're travelling to east European nations. Fees may also be payable to the supplier, the main reason for this is to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area you are travelling to, and locally at border crossings.
