Nuances of Car Rental in Slovakia
To save on your rental, we advise to book your car in advance. You will save the most if you do this several weeks or even several months prior to your trip. Rental offices in Slovakia usually raise rental prices over time, based on the number of cars left available for the accounting period. When looking for an exotic car (cabriolet, minivan or limousine), we advise to check in the rental offices located at airports, as they usually provide much wider choice compared to offices in urban areas.
Upon receipt of invoices, bills and documents for your car at the rental location, please compare the obtained data with your voucher. Quite often, employees of rental offices in Slovakia try to add optional charges or services without informing customers.
It is very important to pick up your car at the rental office in Slovakia in the correct way. Prior to leaving the office, carefully inspect the car for various defects, and ensure that all the discovered defects are mentioned in your rental documents. In case of a non-compliance found, place a demand for correction to the rental officer.

Hire Car Driving Tips
U.S. citizens arriving in Slovakia as tourists for stays up to 90 days may use their U.S. state drivers’ licenses (DL) along with an International driving license, which can be obtained by mail from AAA. The International Driver’s License/ International Driving Permit helps to interpret your domestic government issued driver license and could be useful for car rental and car insurance in many countries. It became a useful advantage for motorists who are traveling overseas and can drive in different territory without experiencing difficulties with various language barriers.
U.S. citizens who obtain temporary or permanent residency permits in Slovakia must apply to exchange their state driver license for a Slovak driving license of an E.U. type which will be valid for driving in Slovakia as well as in other countries of the EU.
