Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Recent years have seen a vast expansion of Poland's motorway and major road network, creating a more relaxed and enjoyable driving experience than in the past. A side effect of this expansion, however, means that roadworks are common. Expect some aggressive driving especially on rural roads while major cities become very congested during the evening peak hours of 7 to 8 p.m.

More tips for enjoying driving in Poland:

  • Note that Kilometres are used for distances and speed limits, and that driving is on the right in Poland.
  • Unless otherwise indicated always give way to the right
  • Expect to pay tolls on the A2 and A4 motorways. These can be paid either electronically if your vehicle has a tag or by cash.
  • Children under 12 or less than 1.5m in height require appropriate child restraints.
  • City parking across Poland is generally by pay and display meters in clearly marked areas.
  • If you damage a rental car by driving off paved surfaces you will be charged for any repair costs.

Speed limits in Poland

  • Residential areas: 20 to 60 km/h depending on the time of day
  • National roads: 100 - 120 km/h
  • Motorways: 140 km/h

Traffic Infractions and on-the-spot fines:

Polish police are able to issue on-the-spot fines to non-residents. In an effort to reduce road casualty rates strict penalties are enforced for speeding and drink driving.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of Poland's most popular tourist attractions. Part of the UNESCO World Cultural and Heritage List it documents the underworld lives of miners and their families going back centuries. It also provides a venue for underground concerts. Also on the UNESCO list are the Wooden Tserkvas or churches found in the Carpathian region. Built between the 16th and 19th-centuries these ornate churches each have their own distinctive outline. The stately Centennial Hall in Wroclaw is a concert and exhibition venue and an early example of reinforced concrete architecture. Measured by land area Malbork Castle is the largest in the world. It was built by the Teutonic Knights in the 15th-century.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • Wollin Island
  • Ojcowski National Park
  • Bialowieza National Park
  • Hohe Tatra

Wollin Island in the Baltic Sea off the North coast of Poland is known for its beech forests and bison reserve. Also home to herds of bison is the Bialowieza National Park, the largest remaining stretch of primaeval forest in Europe. Poland's smallest national park is Ojcowski near Krakow. Featuring caves and canyons this biodiverse area is home to thousands of species of insects, birds and mammals. Hohe Tatra or the High Tatras make up part of Poland's border with Slovakia.

Important Film locations

The moving 1993 epic Schindler's List was shot mainly in and around Krakow although a replica of Auschwitz was used as it was considered disrespectful to film within the actual camp. The Pianist (2002) is also a poignant reminder of the Second World War, parts of which were filmed at the National Defence University in Warsaw. Zero Dark Thirty the American political thriller that charts the search for Osama Bin Laden used the city of Gdansk as a location for the CIA's clandestine operations.

P.

Nice staff. Easy process to pick up cad. Some extra charges for insurance and unlimited km. Expensive but a really nice upgrade car and friendly staff. 3.5, but I’m rounding up.

Marc R.

Very quick and competent handling, friendly and motivated staff, very good customer experience. Thanks to the team. I will be back at Sixt in Poznan soon for a new car location.

Denis P.

Great service, very helpful team!

J D.

Wonderful experience! Very lucky to get a car from Sixt, given another provider cancelled my car rental last minute subject to a return flight delay. Pawel from Sixt was very helpful and professional. Also, stayed after closing time to help me after being turned down by the other car dealer. Having rented cars from many places before, I found Sixt to be the most solid! I have been offered a brand new shiny Nissan Kuga with 6k on a clock. No problems with a car return - dropped keys in a box just before my flight. I made sure to fill the tank, so as expected didn't have to pay any extra cost. P.S. Pawel offered me his phone charger as well (hope you found it in a box together with the car keys and registration documents).

Inez N.

I received great service from Mateusz. I showed up earlier than expected, and he helped me with ensuring my reservation was correct with the right insurance package. He warned me of the new traffic laws that came into effect recently also. I have always been satisfied with Sixt. They have good, clean cars and great service.

Rudnei Klein W.

I've been renting cars for a while now and from numerous companies out there, with that said I can state that I find Sixt to be the best company so far, consistently delivering great service with a word-class staff and great options of cars with an extra touch of a great clean smell in the car.

Dennis S.

Everything worked out perfect. Nice and helpful staff, easy pickup and return, nice car.

Erik Z.

After having tried worldwide car rental services for many years, I can definitely say that Sixt is among the best you can find! Wroclaw airport booth is indeed one of their best, professional and relaxed staff together with a pleasing upgrade, what can you ask more? Suggested!

Thomas B.

I rented a car for business, great service

H.

I actually had a good rental experience with this company.

Of course I was very worried because of all the bad reviews on Google.

 

My main reason for booking with Sixt, despite the reviews, was because I needed to take the car to Ostrava, 25 km into neighboring Czech Republic. ALL other rental companies charge €25-60 for crossing borders, but it was included in Sixt.

 

BOOKING

I booked directly on the Sixt website as I got a better deal than going through any price comparison sites like RyanAir, Booking.com and Wizz.

 

INSURANCE

Because of all the bad reviews and reports about made up damages, I bought their own CDW for an extra €16/day. I also bought an extra full coverage car rental insurance on the internet that covered everything and also the things not included by Sixt's CDW.

 

CAR

The car was nice and fresh with some 15 000 km on the meter, although not the Citroen C-4 as ordered but a Toyota Avensis Hybrid. It felt a bit weak to keep up with the 140 km/h speed limit on Polish high ways.

 

TAKE PHOTOS

Before leaving and returning, I parked the car in a well-lighted area of the parking garage to take pictures/videos of any existing damages. Fortunately I never needed the photos/videos. Bring a clean micro fiber cloth to remove any dirt and a flashlight (use the torch on another phone) might come in handy.

 

DOCUMENTS AND PARKING TICKET

Don't forget to return the vehicle's registration documents and the NEW garage ticket you get when entering the garage upon returning the car.

 

REFILL GAS

There is an Orlen petrol station just 500 m from the parking house. it can be a bit confusing how enter the gas station as you have to make a full circle and go back the way you came from in the roundabout. I made sure to fill the tank completely by filling some extra after the gas pump auto stops. So for me a good experience.

Kacper S.

Extremely helpful! I made a few errors in the booking process but Paweł at the service desk was very accomadating and ensured we were all set. Amazing service!

Tomasz B.

This is the second time I used Sixt, once in Warsaw and the second time in Rzeszow airport. Compared to Warsaw, I highly recommend Sixt in Jasionka because their staff is professional and knowledgeable. Folks that work there took the time to explain every detail of the contract and happily answered any questions I had at the time.

Ryan D.

Life saver, you do what you could do to help passengers out! She was the only one willing to say yes. I did not get your agent’s name but whoever was working Wednesday afternoon, she deserves a raise and a promotion!

Miłosz B.

Very friendly, helpful and professional service

Andrew K.

Except a little confusion around a booked car (model/type) and its availability everything was perfect.

Even this confusion was resolved professionally by the company representatives.

 

Worth to mention that it was not an easy task, since due to a bad booking experience with another rental company, I had only one day to arrange everything.

But, Sixt did a good job and when we arrived to the airport, it takes a moment and we were ready to go on a brand new VW Tiguan!

Car return also was pretty easy and comfortable.

 

Thanks Sixt for a good service!

Dave N.

Great staff and vehicles. If you come at a right time and they have luxury cars available you can get a tremendous upgrade deal.

Patrick Y.

They ALWAYS take amazing care of my rental needs.

Orkhan S.

My favourite rental. Excellent service!
