Car rental Albania

Albania is a country located in Southern Europe. It haves a population of 2,831,741 people and it is using the Albanian lek (Lek). In Albania you have to drive on the right direction of the road.

Driving in Albania is easy since the roads between the important destinations have been recently repaved and fixed, and offer all the security measures one would expect on a highway. Specially if you rent a car, you need to know that there are no fees for using the highways. Minor road surfaces can be poor, deeply pitted or non-existent, and sometimes a decent paving can suddenly disappear. Highways have frequent changes in speed limit and there are frequent police mobile speed checks. Expect pedestrians, horses or donkeys cross highways or walk on them. Be aware that especially Tirana suffers from great traffic congestion during mornings and midday. Gypsy and beggar children may approach your car at major stop lights. Nudge slightly forward to get them off your car and if necessary go into the traffic intersection to get rid of them. The rainy season, usually between December and February, can cause severe flooding, particularly in the north of Albania. Expect queues at all border crossings, especially at weekends and during the summer months. Some Albanian drivers can be aggressive and erratic, and minor traffic disputes can get out of hand. If you're involved in an accident, you must wait until the police arrive.
