hi if i hire a car in krakow will i or do i need a parking permit ?
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
