Top tips for hiring a car in Lithuania

  • In Lithuania, it is not always mandatory to have a credit card to hire a car. While most car hire companies prefer credit cards for payment and as a security deposit, some may accept debit cards or cash as well. It is advisable to check with the specific hire agency beforehand regarding their payment options and requirements to ensure a smooth car hire process in Lithuania.
  • In Lithuania, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for drivers is 0.04%. This means that drivers are not allowed to have more than 0.04 grams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. It is important for those looking to hire a car to adhere to this limit strictly. Driving under the influence of alcohol can result in severe penalties, including fines, licence suspension and even imprisonment. It is best to avoid drinking and driving altogether.
  • In Lithuania, driving is done on the right-hand side of the road. It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving, unless in hands-free mode. Seat belts are mandatory for all passengers, and children under 150 cm (4.9 ft) in height must be secured in appropriate child seats. Speed limits generally range from 50 km/h (31 mph) in urban areas to 130 km/h (80 mph) on major highways. It is important to follow these laws and regulations for a safe driving experience in Lithuania.
  • Hiring a car offers several advantages over relying solely on public transport in Lithuania. It provides flexibility and convenience, allowing travellers to explore remote areas and attractions at their own pace. Public transport networks might have limitations, especially in rural areas. Additionally, hire cars allow for privacy, comfort and the ability to easily carry luggage. With a car, one can avoid crowded buses or trains and have the freedom to choose their own routes and itinerary.
