Has anybody any helpful advice or insights about hiring cars locally in Krakow city centre or vicinity? I will be hiring one fairly frequently over the next few months, and would appreciate any recommendations about reliable, tried and trusted companies, or useful contacts.

I can recommend Avis (got a discount customer number there).
There are other ones, but it matters if you will rent for longer period or a few cars for e.g. 2-5 days each...

Yes, I agree.

I rent with Avis when I need a bigger car for visiting friends and I have never had a problem. They will try to offer you add-ons and you should choose them at your discretion. I personally never bother.

Their Site: w w w (You can select English if you don't speak Polish)

Many thanks for that Olaf and Brit-Pol. I was beginning to think that nobody ever hires cars here! Cheers!

Or try Express, a Polish rental company. Good prices, well-maintained cars (

Thanks for that Stu. I looked on their website, which looks very good indeed, and whilst the prices are really low....their online booking system seems to be trying to charge the daily advertised rate for the collection, and again for the return. So for a 24 hour period it is charging 2 x advertised daily rate, plus a 50 pln car preparation charge. I have e-mailed them to question this, so will await their explanation. Many thanks.

They may be chipper but they always find something to charge you extra

I have never heard something like that, I also drive my own car here in Krakow- I do not think that there is such thing as parking permit. Just when you park in the city center you should be careful and check for parkomat.

I used a company called "Rentis" once, they had good prices and the guy who works there was very friendly. They have comparatively good prices and you can leave the car in another city. (you will need to leave deposit) rentis. pl
