Top tips for renting a car in Latvia

  • With a hire car, you have the freedom to create your itinerary and explore Latvia at your own pace, visiting off-the-beaten-path destinations and adjusting your plans as you wish. Latvia has many beautiful rural areas and natural landscapes that may not be easily accessible by public transportation. In addition to exploring the vibrant capital, Riga, you can organise daily trips to Sidulga, which is known for its stunning scenery and mediaeval castles. There’s also Kuldīga, which is known for its charming old wooden buildings, and the Venta Rapid, Europe's widest waterfall.
  • The majority of roads in Latvia are paved, offering smooth driving experiences on most routes. Major roads and highways connecting cities and towns are usually in good condition, with well-marked lanes and clear signage. Some rural roads may be narrower and less maintained compared to major highways, but they are generally passable with caution. During the winter months, especially from November to March, Latvia experiences cold temperatures, snow and icy conditions. Winter tyres are recommended during this period, and some roads may require extra care and attention due to snow and ice.
  • Children below 1.5 metres in height are required to utilise an appropriate restraint system based on their size and weight, or they may use the lap strap of an adult seat belt. The maximum allowable blood alcohol content is 0.05%. However, for drivers with less than 2 years of experience, it’s 0.02%. Exceeding these limits results in severe penalties.
  • Some major car hire companies, including Sixt, do not apply an extra charge for cross-border travel to Estonia and Lithuania. However, for use in other European countries, it depends on the car category. An additional foreign-use fee is applicable, and prior approval is necessary. It is always important to check with the car hire company about the requirements.

  • What is driving like in Latvia?

    It is important to know that while Latvia has a network of well-maintained roads, especially in major cities and between towns, some rural and secondary roads may have potholes and uneven surfaces. Drivers should exercise caution, especially during winter when road conditions can be more challenging due to snow and ice. Moreover, major cities in Latvia, such as Riga, may experience traffic congestion during peak hours (07:00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 19:00), especially on main routes and in the city centre.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Latvia?

    The minimum age for hiring a car in Latvia depends on the car hire company you are booking with, but typically you can expect it to be around 19 to 21 years old. Some car hire companies may require you to have had your driver’s licence for at least one year, and there may be extra insurance costs for drivers under the age of 25. It is recommended to verify with your car hire company whether you are able to hire a car in Latvia and what their policies are.

  • How are petrol prices in Latvia?

    When driving in Latvia you can expect to pay around €1.50 (£1.30) per litre of petrol and approximately €6 (£5.14) for a gallon. However, it is also advisable to check the petrol prices on an official government website before your trip to Latvia, as the prices may have changed slightly; it is common for the prices to fluctuate due to several factors.

  • What are the speed limits in Latvia?

    The speed limit within built-up areas, which includes residential areas and city streets, is typically 50 km/h unless otherwise indicated by signs. On roads outside built-up areas, the default speed limit is usually 90 km/h. However, on some roads, particularly those with more challenging conditions or other factors, the speed limit may be 70 km/h or lower, so it's important to pay attention to posted speed limit signs. On dual carriageways or roads with more than one lane per direction, the speed limit is usually 100 km/h unless otherwise indicated.
