Austria tourist information and car rental tips

Austria is a great country with plenty of tourist attractions. If you are planning a vacation in this country, you will not get disappointed. Whether you are going to stay in the capital city Vienna, or any other city, satisfaction is guaranteed as far as exploration is concerned.

How to get to Austria?

Austria has a state of the art international airport known as Vienna International airport. It is situated 18km southeast of Vienna’s center, in a place known as Schwechat. It is the biggest and the busiest in Austria, being able to handle wide-body aircraft.

What Forms Of Ground Transport and car Rental are Available in Austria?

There are plenty of ground transport means to choose from. Your choice will depend on your budget, tastes and preferences, and your destination too. They include;

  • Shuttle buses
  • Hotel shuttles
  • Trains
  • Private limousines
  • Taxi cabs

Car rental is another option, and perhaps the best of all. This is because cheap car hire companies are available in large numbers across the country. Additionally it would be the wisest decision to rent a car, because it gives you the freedom to tour the country as you like.

Taxis are good, and while they might take you to your exact destination, they are more expensive. Compared to car rental, taxis do not give you the freedom to tour at your own pace, and if they might, you will pay stiff fees for it. Private limousines belong to private companies, and you need to make an arrangement beforehand. They are very expensive too.

What is the official language in Austria?

Austria uses German as the official language. It is critical you familiarize yourself with a few German words and phrases especially if you would like to rent a car and tour the country. Although other languages like English might be spoken in big cities, it is no guarantee that you are going to find English speakers in the native villages you might want to tour.

Can I exchange cash at the airport in Austria?

Austria uses the Euro. It is possible to change your currency at the airport, but the rates are likely to be much higher. If possible, make a point of exchanging your currency online if you must use it at the airport when paying for services like car rental or taxis. Alternatively, pay for these services online and exchange you currency in banks and exchange bureaus at the city.

Do I expect to have any unique experiences in Austria?

Austria is a magnificent country as far as tourism is concerned. It all depends on what type of tourist you are. If you have a passion for tourism, there are numerous Rustic farm house museums that will be waiting for you. Vienna also boasts of plenty of opera and concerts that are certain to give you an experience of a lifetime. If you love nature, make a point of visiting national parks like the Seewinkel National Park or visit Lake Neusiedl, or you can visit Mohndorf, a village with a dedication for the poppy seed.

Excellent Service. One Remark:

After a car drop off, i never know the final charge for the car; invoice is seldom sent after return... maybe a good practice will be to make sure that the customer gets the final detailed invoice, by mail, after return...
