You may or may not need a rental car in Poland. When I visit my country, I often use my family’s car or public transportation. However, there are times when having a car is just what yo need! There’s a lot to see in Poland – whether you’re visiting Warsaw, Kraków or any of Poland’s historic cities, and whether you’re retracing your family’s roots, are traveling for business or simply love authentic Polish cuisine, a rental car in Poland will allow you to do and see more during your trip.
To rent a car in Poland, you must be at least 21 years old and have held your license for 1 year. A few car classes have a maximum rental age of 70 years. Drivers renting a car under the age of 25 may incur a young driver surcharge. An International Drivers License is required (If you have an EU driving license you can drive in Poland without issue. If you are from outside the European Union you must obtain an international drivers license to drive in Poland.)
