Cons: Bilen gikk ikke, tok sin tid før den begynte å kjøre. Det var en eco lampe på bilen som ikke kunne slukkes . Vi var for å spise mat det var en litte bake der bilen gikk så vid opp den baken. Tok kontakt med six å fikk beskjed at det var p.g.a motor var for liten. Vi har kjørt biler med liten motor her også men aldrig hatt det probleme. Vi måte betale 120 euro i tilleg for å få en annet bil toyota corola med 1.3 motor.

Never againPros: Pick up = speedCons: bad staff We have to pay 175e when we take the car for the insurance ...
I would think twice before bookingPros: Location is convenient.Cons: Not one car listed on Kayak is available for rent. If you rent a Tahoe they try to give you a Hyndai something something and they explain to you how its better than the Tahoe. The cars are super old and twice now they give them to you on empty.

The capital of Kosovo has both historical and natural attractions, so to get the most out of your visit, it’s a good idea to choose a car hire in Pristina to get around. There is a city-wide transport network, but you’ll want to explore further and more independently. This is a wonderful place for road trips. One of the most popular is a drive out to Peja and the Rugova Gorge, a round trip of about 5h. Inside the city limits itself is the Mother Theresa Cathedral and the even older Fatih Mosque of Xhamia e Mbretit.
You can fly directly into the city to Pristina International Airport Adem Jashari, where you’ll find a large selection of car hire companies, including regional ones and the world’s most popular brands. Once you exit the arrival’s hall in the main terminal, keep walking straight towards the terminal exit and just before you reach it you’ll arrive at the airport’s information desk. Look to your right and you’ll see the car hire section. Then you simply walk through the exit and you’ll see the airport parking lot in front of you, where you’ll be able to complete your Pristina car hire process.
The first thing to be aware of about driving in Pristina is that it’s a city that offers two very different experiences, depending on whether you visit in summer or winter. In summer, the city actually gets emptier rather than busier. However, the centre of town is very much a pedestrian area during the warmer weather, so keep an eye out for them when driving around. If you visit in winter, however, it’s a very different story. The temperatures plummet as low as more than -20°C so you’ll have to be very careful on the roads, especially as they aren’t as well maintained in winter.
Traffic conditions can be quite stern in Pristina, so despite the weather conditions you’re always likely to get snarled up at some point, most usually during the city’s rush hours, which peak at around 08:30 in the mornings and can last from 16:00 till 18:00 in the afternoons. The main arterials are the ones to avoid at these times, especially at their large junctions, such as where the M9 Bulevardi Bill Klinton and the M2 Lidhja e Pejes come together. The same can be said for where Vellezerit Fazliu and Bakram Bahtiri merge with each other.

Your choice of car hire in Pristina once again depends on the time of year that you’re visiting the city. During the summer months you can hire a saloon or, if you’re going to be spending most of your time in the centre of the city, a compact model for dealing with the traffic. In winter, it’s a case of having as much grip on the roads as you can, in which case you should preferably opt for a four-wheel drive or at least a 2x4. Look for an SUV, and also check with your car hire operator whether snow chains are included or not.
The speed limits in Pristina are determined by the density of housing, so in inhabited zones you’re limited to 50km/h (roughly 30mph). On roads outside of the areas that aren’t motorways, you can travel at 80km/h (about 50mph). On the motorways you’ll have some zones that are set at 110km/h (around 68mph) and others at 130km/h (roughly 80mph).
Petrol is very well priced in Pristina, costing an average of €1.05 (roughly £0.90) per litre. Some of the easiest petrol stations you can find on the main motorways are the Shell on HQ Veternik Prishtina, the Ex Fis on Blvd Bill Klinton and the IP on Hamez Jashari.
Your other concern with car hire in Pristina will be parking. Rest assured that there are plenty of parking lots and car parks, most of which are free for the first 30min. You’ll pay as little as €1 (about £0.86) for 8h at the parking lot located outside the Youth Palace. Other car parks are on Zeki Shulemaka and the Parking Bazaar on Lidhja e Prizrenit.
