Guide to picking the perfect rental car at Tirana Airport
There are lots of factors that will determine what rental car is best for you when hiring a car in Tirana Airport including;
- How many passengers
- How much luggage
- Duration of rental
- Type of driving planned
- Reputation of rental agent
- Convenience of rental agent
Most rental cars will accommodate 5 passengers, however mini / economy cars whilst may legally carry 5 passengers (have 5 seat belts), they are classified as 4 passenger cars as the middle seat in the bench may only be suitable for the smallest. Not all minivans are 9 seaters, some only accommodate 7, check before you book.
Consider how much luggage you need to carry and remember you’ll likely have all of your luggage driving to and from the airport, so whilst you won’t necessarily use the space for the rest of your trip, you do need to fit it into the car. You might need to rent a larger car (estate or SUV) just carry the luggage.
You’ll probably be ok to rent a smaller car (cheaper) for shorter rentals as likely have less luggage and generally spend less time in the car, so if it’s a bit of a squeeze, it’s not the end of the world.
Type of driving
If you’re planning long distance, or mainly motorway driving, we’d recommend renting the largest car within your budget. Smaller, economy cars are unlikely to be suitable or comfortable for long distance motorway driving.
If service is high on your priority list, check our recent customer ratings for all of the rental agents listed in our search results, you’ll soon get a feel for what other customer think of the rental agents and can select accordingly.
If your time is more precious than a few Euro, check the location of the rental agent. An off-airport rental agent is likely to take longer to process as you have to factor in the shuttle service to and from the terminal (both ways).
By answering all of the above questions and factoring in your budget, you’ll narrow down your choice of rental car, then all you have to decide is what colour!
