You're finally planning a road trip to Albania. Good news! Today, with many car rental companies present on the national territory, Albania offers a wide choice of rental cars among the best prices. To assist you with your trip, here is an overview of what you need.
The first thing you need to consider when you rent a car is whether you are old enough. Car hire in Albania is allowed for drivers from 21 years old with at least two years of driving license. Plus, if you are not Albanian, you will need an International Driving Permit and a valid ID.
As we said earlier, you have a wide choice of cars to rent in Albania, from low-end vehicles to luxury and many SUVs. However, here are some tips to take into account when making your choice.
Manual or automatic? Choosing between automatic or manual depends, of course, on your preferences. However, remember that Albania is a very mountainous country, and the roads require many gear changes. So if you are planning a trip to the south of the country, prefer automatic to manual for more comfort. Do you want to find a car that fits your budget?

Although there are many car rental services in Albania, it should not be forgotten that the demand is also very high. You can easily find a car at a reasonable price if you do it in time. If you delay too much, the ideal car can quickly leave, and your costs will be higher. Another thing you should consider is that many car rental companies use cash rather than credit cards.
On average you will find prices between 25€ and 60€ per day. If you plan to come after summer, you can find it even cheaper. Also, consider the guarantee for a basic model between 200€ and 300€.
If you plan to drive across Albania for one week, the total cost of rent per day and guarantee is between 410€ and 510€.
On average rent, a car for a month costs 1200€.
