Austria is a historical treasure; a gem that serves a link to different eras in the past.  History may be most appealing to geeks donning thick-rimmed glasses, but you have every reason to believe that Austria is an exciting country to bring out your inner geek.  Rent a sleek Austria car rental and see Mozart’s neighborhood, Roman archeological wonders, Stone Age habitats and the Alps, don’t forget the Alps.  While most people go out of their way for a taste of foreign culture and history, Austria is quite the contrary.  You are surrounded by heritage and history that you can’t escape from it even if you tried.  

Going around Austria

Trains and buses are the Austrians’ mode of transportation within the city.  This is understandable because these two modes of transportation are well-interspersed.  If you’re traveling from one city to another, however, these two cannot be well counted on.  You might have to rent a car in Austria to be able to reach the other cities.  This is not a problem however because reliable car rental in Austria is not hard to find are modestly priced as well. 

From the Airport

Austria has 6 airports that service airlines from major countries.  Where you should land would depend on what comes first in your itinerary, whether it be skiing on the Alps, getting warm by the lakes or going on a history trip.  Commuting in Austria may not be a good try if you are on your first Austria vacation.  It is better to arrange an airport transfer with your hotel or pick up your rental car at the airport.  Of course, an Austria travel guide and map should be picked up at the airport as well. 

Places to See

Skiing the Alps is among most travelers’ number one spot Austria car rental holiday itinerary.  The Alps are simply astounding, a stark contrast of white against the blueness of the sky.  After an exciting day of skiing, you may drive your car hire to Innsbruck where the Alps interestingly complement the artistic medieval structures.  Museum-hopping in Innsbruck lets you in on thousand years old annals that shaped the country’s identity.  If you hail from the city, it would be fun to drive your rental car to Bregenzerwald, which is as “country” as it can get.  Imagine alpine milk and cheeses amidst the clanks of cowbells, where locals treat you with utmost welcome and hospitality.  Of course, what is a car rental holiday in Austria without a trip to Salzburg, the birthplace of Baroque, the birthplace of the most renowned Mozart?

Nearby Countries
