Costs of travelling outside of Austria
If you intend on taking your rental car to a different country, you must notify the rental company in advance, at the time of booking. This will incur additional fees, on average from EUR 10 to Eur 35 or more.
There may be some restrictions on travelling to certain countries or crossing the border in certain brands of cars. The company will have a list of countries that are forbidden to enter with a rented car. For premium class cars, this list is even more encompassing.
For example, Sixt has divided the countries into two zones:
- Zone 1 — Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, etc.,
- Zone 2 — Hungary, Latvia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, etc.
