If you live in Central Canada or Southern Canada, facing hours and hours of travel to go to Vienna is really prohibitive. Car rental during your holiday in Vienna will allow you to explore not only the most attractive places in the Austrian capital but also other nearby cities such as Innsbruck, Linz, Graz, and Salzburg.
Driving a car in Vienna is like driving in Canada. The Austrian traffic rules are almost identical to the Canadian ones. The Viennese, like all Austrians, are very attentive to the rules, so you will have to pay attention to their rigidity and one-way streets in the downtown area with pedestrianized streets and timed parking. Tickets can be purchased at automatic ticket machines, tobacconists, banks, railway stations, or from newspaper dealers. The ideal is to leave your car parked in the large paid parking lots in peripheral areas near the subway stops and from there move by public transport to the center.
If you intend to leave in the winter period (from November to March) remember that by law the car must have winter tires or snow chains ready when needed.
Vienna today is a veritable center of culture, music, and science. On the places to visit, I recommend the museum houses of Schubert and Beethoven, the cafes of Vienna, the Grinzing and the wine taverns, the Monastery of the Augustinian canons, and the various houses of Mozart. Also not to be missed: the St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Imperial Hofburg Palace of the Habsburgs, and the Landstrasse district. If you love driving, the Grossglocker panoramic road will show you the beautiful landscape of the Austrian Alps.
Renting a car in Vienna, for those with family or traveling with couples of friends, is economically more convenient considering also the great advantage of being able to move whenever you want without having to follow the rigid scheme of guided tours.
The advice is to book the car a few months before departure (3/4 months) and compare the most convenient offers on carflexi. It is an online service, with a booking engine, where you can compare more than 1200 rental car suppliers, including leading brands, at very low prices (starting from 9 euros per day on weekly rental).

Car Rental Rates include: insurance, taxes, roadside assistance, airport commission, and unlimited mileage. There are also no credit card fees and no surprise costs. You will have customer service available 24 hours a day for 7 days and a wide availability of vehicles.
The most convenient solution for a trip to Vienna is to rent a car at Vienna United National Airport, 16 km from the city center. By picking up your car at the airport you will avoid wasting time looking for the car rental office in the city and get prices that include all necessary insurance and unlimited kilometers.
