Krakow Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Krakow Airport and then drive to the city center! Unlike Warsaw and many other European cities, Krakow suffered relatively little damage during World War II. So make sure you visit its beautiful and well-preserved Old Town—and impressive buildings like St. Florian’s Gate and Wawel Castle, too. Go for a leisurely stroll through Planty Park (it encircles the old town) or take a boat ride on the Vistula River and enjoy the cityscapes from onboard.

Drive your rental to the Kazimierz district to learn about the city’s Jewish history and see its beautiful old synagogues. Then head to a restaurant for a meal of oscypek cheese made in the Tatra Mountains, żurek soup, and pierogi dumplings. Don’t miss out on delicious Krakow street foods like zapiekanka, either!

Krakow’s a great destination, but the surrounding area has even more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can drive to the nearby mountains and into Slovakia, head north to Warsaw and coastal Gdansk, or even visit the neighboring Czech Republic or Ukraine. Picking up your rental car at Krakow Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your vacation today!

Krakow Airport is also known as John Paul II International Airport Kraków–Balice and Międzynarodowy Port Lotniczy im. Jana Pawła II Kraków–Balice.
