Albania Car Rental Mini Guide

Big car hire names like Alamo, Enterprise and Sixt are all present in Albania and for first time renters in Albania, these international brands will likely be appealing and for good reason, they offer a great service and one that many are used to. You are unlikely to go far wrong by renting a car from any of these via our booking system, but prepare to pay a premium for the privilege. For many, that’s a price worth paying, but it needn’t be a given.

Local agents like OptimoRent and Surprise offer a compelling argument against the big 3, expect to pay as much as 20% less and don’t assume the standard of car or service will be any less.

We all have different views on what constitutes the best deal, for some it’s the lowest price, others it’s the car and to many best service outweighs both. With no less than 10 rental agents across Albania and over 100 model / agent configurations, it’s no wonder that you might find yourself a little confused about what car / agent combination is best for you.

Across all rental agents in Albania, the most popular rental cars by class are;  
  • Volkswagen Up (mini)
  • Hyundai i20 (economy)
  • Ford Focus (compact)
  • Suzuki Vitara (SUV)
  • Volkswagen PAssat (standard)
  • Volkswagen Caddy (minivan)
  • Mercedes Vito (9 seater)
