Car hire excess insurance in Riga

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Riga car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Riga.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Riga car rental.

2.0 Mediocre11 Oct. 2017
ProblemCons: We didnt rent the car from AVİS. Because the car that we have rented was given to another, and there wasnt any car similar car to drive. I have been all over the world and havent seen anything like this. We have rented from another car company. I will never use AVİS again... Thank you.

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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Riga for $47 or less
  • 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 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • For driving around Riga, a mid-size sedan is a good option. An economy car will also help cut the costs of driving in Latvia, and a spacious SUV is great when road tripping across the country. But if you’re visiting in the winter, a four-wheel drive provides more safety when driving through snow, and when winter tires are required.

  • The speed limit on urban areas is typically 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour), unless otherwise posted. The speed limit on public roads is usually 90 km/h (55 mph), and drivers on high-speed roads are allowed to drive at a maximum speed of 100 km/h (62 mph).

Some petrol stations may offer lower prices of about €4.62 ($5.26 USD) per gallon, but some also charge rates as high as €5.11 ($5.82 USD) per gallon. Latvia generally offers cheaper petrol prices than the surrounding countries, so take that into consideration if you’re planning on a European road trip.

  • On-street parking in Riga is paid between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday to Friday, and between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday. Parking on Sundays and public holidays is free. There are several different parking zones, with each charging different rates. There are many parking lots in Old Riga, with a rate of €1.50 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and €1 until 11 p.m.
