Customer questions about Vienna Airport car hire

Hi, I would like to book a mercedes van for 6 pax, arrival at Vienna airport on 29th dec

Hi, I am sorry but we do not offer transfers/drivers. Only self drive minivan hire. Is that still of interest?

I am visiting Austria from 11th to 30th June, in between i am going to Prague on 14th June just for a day from 11th 15th , we are just two people. from 15th to 19th, we are 5 adults and 19th to 30th we are six adults, there are 2 people aged 75+ in the family so I need a comfortable SUV. which should be ideal one ? can u suggest !

Hi, sounds like a great trip you have planned. We have a range of SUV's available in Vienna including the Nissan Qashqai, Honda CRV, BMW X3 and Toyota Rav4, personally I would favour the BMW, but the Qashqai is a very good option and very good value.

Vienna Airport Mini Guide

Vienna Airport
Since humble beginnings as a military airport in 1938, Vienna International Airport (VIE) has metamorphosed into the largest and busiest airport in Austria.  In 2018 it welcomed in excess of 30 million passengers. Also known as "Schwechat" after the county in which it is located, the airport has a colourful history of growth and success.  Today it offers excellent facilities and services for travelling in comfort and style.  Visiting after dark offers a treat courtesy of the 109 metre control tower, which entertains with a funky laser show.  Whether you are visiting for business or for pleasure, Vienna International Airport has something for everyone.
Vienna Airport

Getting There
The phrase “access all areas” springs to mind when reviewing the abundance of routes to and from numerous worldwide destinations.  The airport hosts more than 65 passenger and 10 cargo airlines.  It provides a hub for national Austrian Airlines and budget airline Niki. 
Making Your Onward Journey
If it’s all about "Location, Location, Location" then this airport definitely has a prime spot.  The site is not too far from central Vienna, with good transportation links.  Vienna’s central position makes it an important hub for Central and Eastern Europe and the airport facilitates easy access to further flung destinations such as Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
For a hassle-free start to your onward journey, car hire is a great option.  Whether staying within the city limits or wishing to go further, why not enjoy the freedom and convenience of your own car?  Getting into central Vienna is straightforward.  Take a 25 minute journey on the Schnellbahn (S-Bahn) train to Wien Mitte station, close to central Vienna.  There are regional buses heading into the city and onto other Austrian towns, along with international buses to neighbouring countries.

The CAT (City Airport Train) offers a direct route to the city centre and hence costs more.  It takes about 16 minutes to travel between the airport and City Air Terminal, located 10 minutes from Wien Mitte.  Onward routes from there are plentiful, including the new CAT-CAB which offers limousine travel into Vienna.

Business travellers will like the convenience of an on-site hotel, offices, meeting rooms and conferencing facilities.  Even more comfort and mod-cons courtesy of the new VIE-Skylink terminal, (Now named Austrian star alliance terminal 3) came as of 2012
