Salzburg Airport W. A. Mozart (SZG)
Car Hire / Rental
Although there are excellent public transport options from Salzburg Airport WA Mozart (SZG) to the city and its outlying ski resorts, hiring a car gives you the freedom to explore more of the countryside.
With superb roads, many people find driving in Austria a real pleasure. The six car rental companies available are all listed at the bottom of the page.
Car rental desks can be found in the Arrivals areas on the ground floors of both terminals at Salzburg Airport. We recommend that you pre-book your hire car, especially during the busy ski season.
Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Salzburg
Motorways around Austria have all become toll roads since 1997 and those intending to drive along these autobahns are required to display a 'Vignette' tax sticker on their windscreen. Vignettes can be purchased at all of the border crossing points in Austria. The city of Salzburg is close to the German border and many people choose one-way car rental packages from the airport, driving to nearby Munich and other popular German cities.
Parking spaces in the city of Salzburg can be hard to locate and you should be extremely careful where you park, particularly around the Old Town (Alstradt) area. Any cars found parked in the bus lane will be quickly towed away to nearby parking compounds, with harsh fines to pay. Therefore, be sure to check signposts and pay at nearby meters when parking along the streets in Salzburg city centre.
