Lithuania Car Rental Mini Guide

Driving in Lithuania offers travelers a convenient way to explore the country's diverse landscapes, historical sites, and charming towns. One of the primary advantages is the flexibility it provides, allowing you to customize your itinerary and visit both well-known attractions and hidden gems. Lithuania boasts beautiful national parks, such as Curonian Spit National Park and Aukštaitija National Park, which are easily accessible by car. Additionally, you can explore the picturesque Baltic coastline, visit medieval castles like Trakai Castle, and wander through the historic streets of Vilnius, the capital city. With well-maintained roads and clear signage, driving in Lithuania is relatively straightforward, and English-language maps and GPS are readily available for navigation.

Road Rules and Distances from Main Airports:

Lithuania follows European road rules, with right-hand driving and seat belts mandatory for all passengers. Speed limits are clearly marked, with a typical maximum of 50-70 km/h (31-43 mph) in urban areas and 90-110 km/h (56-68 mph) on highways. Blood alcohol content limits are strict, with a zero-tolerance policy for drivers under 21 years old and a low limit for all other drivers.

  • Vilnius Airport (VNO) to Vilnius City Center: Approximately 5 kilometers (3 miles), taking around 15-20 minutes.

  • Vilnius to Trakai: Approximately 28 kilometers (17 miles), taking around 30-40 minutes to reach this historic town with a picturesque castle.

  • Vilnius to Kaunas: Approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles), taking around 1.5 to 2 hours to reach the second-largest city in Lithuania.

  • Vilnius to Klaipėda: Approximately 315 kilometers (196 miles), taking around 4 to 4.5 hours to reach this coastal city.

Lithuania's compact size allows you to explore various regions in a relatively short time. Driving provides the freedom to visit multiple destinations in a single day, making it an ideal way to experience the country's culture, history, and natural beauty.
