Bratislava, the pearl on the Danube, is the capital of Slovakia and a great starting point for the journey by rental car . Its eventful history is reflected today in many historical sights. At the same time, the city inspires visitors with its lively culture, numerous green spaces and modern architecture. Discover Bratislava on your own by booking a cheap rental car. Via our portal you can get a list of all offers of the different car rental companies. Compare services and prices to find the right rental car for your stay. If you rent a car, you can reach the most interesting sights in no time at all.
With a rental car you can reach Bratislava Castle quickly and cheaply. The city's landmark, which was designed in the Renaissance style with four towers, sits enthroned on a rock on the Danube. During a visit to the castle you can not only admire the magnificent interiors of the building, but also visit the Historical Museum . Thanks to its elevated location, the recently renovated building also offers an impressive view over Bratislava.
Enjoy a great view also from the bridge of the Slovak National Uprising. It has a viewing platform at a height of almost 100 metres. Here you can look down on the city and the Danube. A restaurant can also be found on the closed observation deck.
One of the most unusual buildings in the Slovak capital is the Church of St. Elizabeth. The roof, façade and church interior are designed in various shades of blue, which is why the sacral building is nicknamed the "Blue Church". Park your rental car and visit the unusual building with its artistic mosaics.
You can pick up your rental car in Bratislava as you can at Letisko Airport Bratislava. It is about nine kilometres outside the city centre. If you rent your car directly at the airport, you can drive cheaply and independently to your hotel or another destination.
The following speed limits apply on the roads:
|Road category||highest speed|
|Inner cities||50 km/h|
To be covered for damage, you need liability insurance for your rental car. This is already included with all cars that you can book on our portal. The insurance conditions vary from provider to provider. Make sure that the liability insurance covers a damage sum of at least one million euros. If you wish, you can take out further insurance policies. We offer our customers the possibility to protect themselves against theft and loss of their car keys. In addition, we have an insurance policy for damage to glass, tyres, roof and underbody ready for you.
If you rent a car, we recommend comprehensive insurance without excessg. This insurance already covers potential claims, so that you do not have to pay anything in the event of damage. If damage occurs, you first pay the excess when renting a car. You will receive an invoice, which you can present to your car rental broker in due time. The excess will then be refunded to you.
When renting a car deposit a deposit when renting a car. This is a sign that the provider is serious, because the deposit serves as security. A few landlords allow a cash payment, but usually the deposit is debited from your credit card.
If you want to make your trip flexible, take advantage of one-way rental. This allows you to pick up the rental car at one station of the car rental company and return it to another station. Use one-way rentals to explore Slovakia, for example. From Bratislava you can take a road trip to Koice or commute between the airport and the city centre. Although the Slovak capital is located directly on the border with Austria and Hungary, not every car rental company allows international journeys. If you would like to travel by rental car in the border triangle, please inform the local car rental company beforehand.
Would you like to take turns with your travel companion while driving? Then register this person with the car rental as additional driver for your rental car. Then the insurance applies to you both and you can take turns at the wheel. You are particularly cheap when you rent a car with an additional driver already included. Then there are no further fees. We will show you in our price comparison which offers already include an additional driver.
