KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Balice

  • Choosing to hire a car in Balice is a good option if you’re travelling to Krakow or exploring the surrounding area. You can reach Krakow city centre in around 30min with your car hire in Balice, compared with roughly 45min via public transport. Hiring your own car will also give you easy access to nearby attractions, like Krakow Zoo, which is just under a 20min drive from Balice, compared with roughly over 1 hour on public transport. Balice is also a very small village, so public transport may be quite limited.
  • Balice is home to Krakow John Paul II International Airport (KRK). Passengers arriving in Balice via Krakow Airport will find a wide range of car hire branches available at the terminals. You can find some Balice car hire desks inside the main Arrivals terminal, while others are accessed via an airport shuttle.
  • Choosing car hire in Balice is one of the best ways to experience all that the area has to offer. If you’re driving into Krakow, be aware that there are several pedestrianised areas in the city centre. This might mean that it is easier to park slightly further out and then explore central areas on foot, rather than driving all the way up to popular attractions. Krakow also has an extensive tram network and trams have right of way, so be sure that you pay attention to traffic signs and tram stops when driving in the city. You should also watch out for pedestrian crossings when driving in Poland; these are quite common, even on busy roads and dual carriageways, and do not always have traffic lights.
  • If you are driving around Balice village itself or exploring nearby rural areas with your Balice car hire, you are unlikely to encounter too much traffic. However, main roads heading into Krakow may be busy during rush hour, which generally falls between 8 am and 9:30 am and 4 pm and 6:30 pm. Busier roads include the A4, 7 and 79. Poland is also known for experiencing harsh winters, with lots of snow and ice on the roads. If you’re choosing to hire a car in Balice during winter, you may want to ask your car hire company about snow chains for your tyres. You should also drive slowly and carefully on rural roads in cold conditions and keep your phone and some warm clothing in the car with you.
  • Book your car hire in Balice at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Balice are around 81% cheaper than other car types, on average

    Poland’s rural roads are generally well maintained; although, you may encounter some rougher stretches in more remote areas.

An SUV also gives you more storage space than smaller vehicles, making them perfect for carrying picnic or camping supplies in summer or warm clothing in winter.

    If you’re driving in built-up areas in Balice, the speed limit is 50 kph during sociable hours (5 am to 11 pm) and 60 kph at all other times. On rural roads, speed limits sit at 90-120 kph, while the speed limit on motorways is 140 kph.

    There are around four official car parks in Balice, aside from airport car parks, which are usually reserved for airport passengers and for those collecting and dropping off passengers.

On the other side of Balice, there are two car parks on Krakowska Street. Parking in Balice is usually cheap; however, if you park in Krakow, you will usually pay more for central spots.

I didn’t get the car because tegu said I wasn’t allowed to drive in Poland with Canadian driving license and I didn’t get the refund too . Worse experience ever !

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was easy, car was clean and basically brand new.

Cons:

The cost of the insurance was outrageous. We have rented from Sixt in other countries and the cost of insurance (for full coverage) was more than half as much. Not sure what the deal was but the insurance costs 2.5 times the cost of the car itself!

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Pros:

The site is misleading and does not show all complete data. After arriving at the counter we realized that we were being cheated and we had to pay an extra of over 2 times what we paid. Nothing that was listed anywhere on the site.

Cons:

KAYAK

Pros:

I did not like how the employee treated me.. nothing to like...

Cons:

Basically, this company Sixt treats its clients as prays, wants to make money as much as possible .. they refuse to rent me the car bcs I don't have international driver's license.. I have Canadian driver's license that I use anywhere in Europe every time I travel ... They asked me to pay almost € 100 per day just avoid not having DL.. and they also refused to give me the car without insurance even though I told them that I have my own insurance. and of course they asked to pay more for that... I ended up canceling my reservation with them and renting from a company next to them.. the new company gave me no hard time at all.. no international driver's license and no insurance..Thanks Sixt.. no more dealing with you...

6.0 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was great and I got an excellent price from your website for it.

Cons:

Upon picking up my rental from Krakow the Sixt staff proceeded to up sell me additional insurance and explained the insurance I purchased through your website, which was sponsored on the rental confirmation I recieved; Allianz Global Assistance did not mean anything to them. Sixt explained if I did not buy insurance through them I would be personally liable for any damages to my rental and would have to separately/privately file a claim with Allianz. I do not appreciate this not being explained when I booked my car on priceline. I also do not appreciate being sold a $200 insurance only to pickup my car and be sold more insurance. You should train the companies your partner with such as Sixt to have an actual understanding of what you communicate to customers internationally. Terrible overall customer experience.

I had my car pickup scheduled for 5pm. It took few minutes longer to get the luggage. I came to the Avis counter at 5:10pm and it was closed. The airport security guard told me that he saw Avis people close at 4:30pm that day. What?!? I called all phone numbers I was able to find and no answer. I travelled for 36 hours from Sacramento, California to Krakow. I was tored and had to pay extra to take taxi to my final destination and the next day to look for car rental in the city I headed to. Discovery Cars (agent through whom I was connected with Avis) and the Avis counter at the Krakow Balice airport are a pure joke. I will never use their services and I recommend that you don’t use them either.

Car hire insurance in Balice

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Balice car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Balice.
