 Slovakia Car Rental Mini Guide

Slovakia is a great place to have a holiday on a budget as it is not an expensive country and hiring a car is relatively cheap. If you plan to enter Slovakia by air get a visa before you travel as it is impossible to do so at the border. However, Slovakia is part of the Schengen agreement so that means you can drive from neighbouring EU countries such as the Czech Republic and Hungary without having to show ID.

If you plan to take a rental car cross-border either to or out of Slovakia you should check the terms and conditions per rental / agent as these vary. Where cross border travel is permitted, an additional fee / surcharge will be applicable. If in doubt, please contact us before hand for further information.
