Car Hire Mini Guide for Poland

When you book your car hire in Poland there are numerous pick up points where you can collect your vehicle such as at Gdansk, Katowice, Warsaw and Krakow among other locations. It is possible to drive to Poland from Belarus, Lithuania, The Czech Republic,  Germany and Slovakia if you wish and these are all countries from which you can collect Rhino car rental. All of our vehicles come with the choice of a manual or automatic gearbox depending on your preference and air conditioning as well if you want it. You can also customise your car rental booking to suit your needs by adding on one or more of the optional extras available, such as luggage racks, snow tyres, sat nav, child seats and booster seats. If you plan to share some of the driving with somebody else, you can add them on as an additional driver so you can relax knowing you are both covered to drive the car.

The speed limits in Poland are 50 kilometres per hour in a city, 90 kilometres outside the city, 100 kilometres on car-only roads (which is designated by a white car on a blue sign) and 130 kilometres on highways. Two things to watch out for when driving through Poland are slow moving vehicles and aggressive drivers. There are a number of large trucks on the roads in Poland which you may need to overtake. It is worth bearing in mind that many Polish people drive quite aggressively and so will overtake hurriedly and unsafely.
