Car hire in Austria
Hiring a car in Austria
Austria is nestled at the eastern end of the Alps, offering spectacular views of majestic mountain ranges and the opportunity to do your best impression of Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music.
The Von Trapps aren’t Austria’s only famous export, as it has also produced action-film phenomenon and California's ex-Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. The country has a rich musical history, as it is the birthplace of some of the world’s most renowned composers, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert and Heinz Karl Gruber.
Austria offers tourists the perfect balance of urban life and the charm of the countryside. Bustling towns and cities are just minutes away from luscious green forests, meadows of wildflowers and crystal-clear lakes.
To truly take in all that the country has to offer, you need to hit the open road and experience Austria first hand. Just make sure you have change ready, as toll charges apply on all motorways.

Hiring a car in Austria is the key to discovering the hidden gems spotted across the country, such as the stunning architecture in the Wachau Valley and the Horizon Field landscape installation.
Where to pick up your car
You can collect your car from any of Austria’s airports, including Vienna (VIE), Linz (LNZ), Salzburg (SZG) and Innsbruck (INN). You are also able to collect your car from several train stations if you’ve chosen to travel by rail rather than plane.
Once you’ve landed and claimed your baggage, you’ll see a number of car hire supplier desks. If you’ve booked in advance, collecting your vehicle couldn’t be easier. You just sign the paperwork, collect your keys, and then you’re free to drive off and start your Austrian adventure.
You can also arrange your hire car once you land, but this is likely to much more expensive and involve more hassle. By using Holiday Autos to arrange your car in advance, you’ll save time, money and experience an award-winning service.
