Flights to Austria are inexpensive and frequent and all of our developments are within an easy drive of Salzburg, Innsbruck, Munich or Zurich airports. It is also possible to fly to Klagenfurt or Memmingen airports as an alternative.

Car Hire

Hiring a car is the best way to see your chosen properties as it gives you the freedom to explore the surrounding area and get a true feel for the region.

If you hire a car from Germany or Switzerland to drive to Austria, be sure to buy a vignette from a petrol station as you approach the Austrian border. The vignette is a little sticker which costs around 8 euros and needs to be stuck on your windscreen like a tax disc. If your car does not display one you could be given a fine.

During the winter season it is compulsory for car hire companies to provide winter-tyres in Austria, Switzerland, and Bavaria, but other countries such as Italy do not have these same rules. Please make sure if you pick up your car from Italy that you specify winter-tyres. They safer and a legal requirement for driving in Austria.

Useful Tips

Children under 12 or 150cm tall must sit in a child seat. Car headlights must always be on, regardless of the weather. Speed limits in Austria are 130kph on motorways, 100kph on normal roads and 50kph in villages. Watch out for speed cameras!

Don’t Forget!

If you are visiting the Austrian Alps to view properties, make sure you have sensible footwear. In winter you will need waterproof shoes with good grip and a rubber sole. In summertime, bring a pair of flat shoes, as stilettos are not great for walking across plots of land. Winter temperatures in the Austrian Alps can get very chilly so bring warm clothes to ensure that you won’t be cold. It is also useful to bring sunglasses and spf as the sun is strong at high-altitude.
