Top tips for renting a car in Salzburg

  • While you can easily navigate the hometown of Mozart on foot or with the help of public transportation, a rental car is essential to explore the Austrian countryside or other picturesque villages near Salzburg. Take the scenic ride to Austria’s Lake Region, or check out the world’s largest ice caves in Werfen. Salzburg is also conveniently located near the German border.
  • All the major rental car companies can be found at Salzburg Airport W. A. Mozart (SZG), the second largest international airport in Austria. The car rental counters are located opposite the main terminal, on the ground floor of the car park, which is accessed via a covered walkway. Make sure to obtain the Highway Toll Sticker (Vignette) from your car rental agency to avoid fines.
  • While traffic in the city center is a little busy at times, drivers in Salzburg are typically well-behaved. Avoid taking the car to the Old Town area, as it features many narrow roads, one-way streets, restricted areas, and unpredictable pedestrians. Outside of that area, Salzburg is very easy to navigate, and the roads in and around the city are in great condition.
  • Just like any busy central European city, Salzburg experiences some heavy traffic during peak hour, particularly between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and then again between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. On Fridays the roads get busier starting at 3 p.m. However, both the city’s roads and surrounding highways move constantly, even in peak hour. The A1 between Vienna and Salzburg also gets busier on weekends.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Salzburg for C$ 67 or less
  • Book your rental car in Salzburg at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Salzburg are around 53% cheaper than other car types, on average

The closest gas station to the airport is the OMV one located right at the Wilhelm-Spazier-Straße intersection.

  • All of the parking spaces downtown are time-restricted, but the city offers several parking garages and public car parks. Street parking is enforced between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can also leave the car at one of the Park and Ride lots on the outskirts, such as the P+R Salzburg South on route 150 or at the Messezentrum conference center.
