Top tips for hiring a car in Riga

  • The beautiful city of Riga, located right on the Baltic Coast, is the perfect place to explore with a hire car. With your own four wheels you can freely navigate through the city’s main points of interest, such as the Latvian National Opera and Town Hall Square. You can also head to other worthy destinations, including the seaside town of Jūrmala, which is only a 40-minute drive away.
  • Many of the major hire car agencies, including Avis, Budget, and Enterprise, operate at Riga International Airport (RIX), which is about 8 miles from the city center. The hire car companies can be found in the Sector E of the Arrivals Hall in the airport’s main terminal. You don’t need an International Driving Permit to rent a car in Riga.
  • The Old Town area is reserved for pedestrians only, so make sure to park the car in the surroundings before heading there. You must drive with the lights dipped at all times in Riga, and winter tires are enforced between December 1st and March 1st every year. For a more pleasant driving experience, visit Riga between June and September.
  • Rush hour traffic is at its worst between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and then between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., so avoid driving within this window of time if you want to skip the long lines of traffic. Traffic jams get worse close to and on the several bridges that cross the Daugava River and provide access into and out of the city.
  • Book your car hire in Riga at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Riga are around 75% cheaper than other car types, on average
