Innsbruck (Austria)

Innsbruck, is a small town in the western part of Austria, located at the banks of the Inn River. The city's name means literally "bridge over the Inn River". The city is famous for its winter sports and the Winter Olympics have been held here in 1964 and 1976. Innsbruck's sights include also a few medieval churches, the Renaissance-style palace, a few museums and parks, as well as, of course, the surrounding mountains. In addition to a ski resort, the area hosts also Europe's most difficult mountain bike trail (opened 2004 to the North Park), as well as numerous fitness and walking trails in the mountains, from where you have a fantastic view."

Car Rental

Things which affect the renting of the car:

  • Driver’s license: In the European Union / Schengen a driver's license from an EU country is sufficient, although for North Americans it is recommended to carry a separate international driving license, in addition to the American driving license.
  • Direction of traffic: In Europe the traffic is mainly right-handed. The exception is Great Britain, which is left-handed traffic.
  • Insurance: In Western Europe, all rental cars include some kind of insurance, so additional insurance policies are often unnecessary (unless you are going to Russia or Eastern Europe).
  • Driving abroad: You can drive a rental car almost everywhere within all countries of the European Union / Schengen territory without additional fees. Eastern European countries and Russia are the exceptions and you should always ask the car rental company in advance about the rules.
