The permissible blood alcohol content allowed when driving within Austria is 0.05% and it is mandatory to wear seatbelts. Children are only allowed to sit in the front seat of any vehicle if they are aged 12 years or over.

    Standard Inclusions

    In Austria Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection is included in our Auto Europe rates. The CDW and theft protection reduces the deductible (responsibility of the customer) to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in your car hire.
