KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Zakopane

  • Zakopane is a popular mountain resort town that attracts tourists throughout the year, meaning that public transport, like buses and taxis, can be crowded, especially during the peak seasons. Having your own Zakopane car hire gives you the freedom to explore Zakopane and its surrounding areas at your own pace. By hiring a cheap car hire in Zakopane, you can easily access remote areas and hiking trails that may not be accessible by public transport. Some of the places that are worth visiting with a hire car in or around Zakopane include Tatra National Park, Morskie Oko, and Chochołów.
  • You can pick up Zakopane car hire at Kraków J. Paul II Balice Airport (KRK), which is 55 miles (88 km) from Zakopane. The car hire offices at KRK are located in the car hire centre, which is situated next to the multi-level car park P1. The centre can be accessed by a covered walkway from the terminal building, and it takes only a few minutes to get there. A shuttle bus is not necessary, but it can be requested if needed. At Katowice Pyrzowice Airport (KTW), the car hire centre is situated right next to the airport's terminal building.
  • Driving in Zakopane, Poland, is generally quite safe and straightforward, with well-maintained roads and signs in both Polish and English. However, there are a few things to keep in mind if you are planning to drive in the area. Drivers in Zakopane are generally calm and relaxed, with little aggression or impatience on the roads. The roads in Zakopane are generally well-maintained, but it is important to be aware of any changes in road conditions, particularly in the mountains where the roads may become narrow and winding.
  • Rush hour generally starts in the early morning, around 07:00 to 09:00, and in the evening, from 17:00 to 19:00. During these times, traffic can be heavy, and roads, particularly those leading into the city centre, can become congested. Winter can also be a particularly challenging time to drive a cheap car hire in Zakopane due to the heavy snowfall that is common in the area. Snow and ice can make roads slippery, reducing visibility and making it difficult to control a vehicle. It is important to ensure that hired vehicles have appropriate tyres and other equipment, such as snow chains, when driving in the winter.
