Albania is changing rapidly, not least its roads. An influx of EU cash and a domestic road-building program has meant that hundreds of kilometres of brand-new asphalt has been laid in the past few years (and some Swiss-standard tunnels, too) slashing journey times across Albania.
This means that self-drive itineraries have never been easier. One issue, though, is that the international car hire companies such as Hertz and Sixt charge a lot more than they do elsewhere in Europe.
We can offer you some of the best and most reasonably priced cars, as well as some of the safest and most friendly drivers around the country, too (a great way to know more about Albanians – drivers have so many genuine stories to tell!) Just get in touch to find out more. Some of the smaller cars that we can offer at 29.9 euros/day would be:
Ford Focus Estate (Station Wagon)
Ford Focus C-Max, etc.
*Includes insurance, unlimited mileage, second driver free of charge and taxes. No credit card required.
Hire a 4×4 in Albania
If you’re after a little adventure and want to reach Albania’s more remote regions, then you’ll need a 4×4. Hiring one from the international firms can be eye-wateringly expensive, so instead contact us. We have our own trusty fleet of great 4wd cars including Land Rover Defenders, Land Rover Discoveries, Mitsubishi Pajeros, etc.
Hire an experienced Albanian driver
If you manage to drive through a Tirana roundabout, nothing will really scare you anymore in life. While we’re probably dramatizing a bit too much, you’ll be amused to see how Albanian drivers try to make their way through very chaotic Tirana traffic. We truly believe that you’ll have no problems driving yourself around the country (Place de l’Etoile in Paris is much worse and let’s not talk of driving around Rome!) but it will be much more comfortable and enjoyable for you to hire one of our really experienced drivers. We promise that they will not give you an English language lecture on nuclear chemistry, but will see to your every need and tell you a little anecdote or story.
