Driving in Albania
Keep in mind every country has different laws concerning vehicle behavior and registration. This is an important consideration when you rent a car in Albania, or anywhere abroad. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your driving time in Albania:
- >Be wary of minor roads. They are often in poor condition, and sometimes disappear completely. Locals will tell you whether it is safe to travel away from the highway.
- >Frequently you will encounter changes in speed limits and police will be monitoring your speed. For that reason, make sure you have all necessary insurance paperwork. (Sixt will help with that, of course.)
- >Though major highways are well-paved and free, you can expect erratic behavior from other vehicles. Pedestrians and livestock cross or walk alongside the roads in Albania.
- >Greek holiday seasons greatly increase traffic, particularly Orthodox Easter.
What to see with your car rental in the Albania
Car rental is the preferred method of seeing the countryside in Albania. We recommend taking a leisurely drive along the Vlorė-Saranda mountain road. Considered the gateway to southern Albania, this scenic route offers beautiful views of both mountains and the Ionian sea! There are many opportunities to stop as well. You could visit one of the many villages nestled along this road or stop by Castle of Lekures. Butrint, an ancient Greek city and UNISCO world heritage site, is also on the Vlorė-Saranda. All of this and more is waiting for you when you rent a car with Sixt.
