Tips for driving in Austria

Before you pick up your Sixt car hire in Austria it is a good idea to research the rules of the road.
- The driving laws are similar to those in other countries - you must observe speed limits, obey traffic signs and wear seat belts at all times.
- Children under 14 who are less than 150 cm tall must sit in an appropriate child seat - Sixt can provide this for you if necessary.
- It's compulsory for all drivers in Austria to carry a reflective jacket in their car in case of an accident or breakdown - this will be included with your car hire.

The speed limit for cars in built-up areas is 31 mph, on dual carriageways it's 62 mph, and on motorways it's 80 mph.

If you are headed to Weiz or any of the surrounding areas, this is the place to rent a bigger better vehicle. I was staying in small town where rental options are very limited and needed a large SUV. Rather than paying excessive airport pickup convenience fees (several hundred €/$) at VIE, I hopped on the train to Weiz Zentrum to pickup same lux SUV (BMW X5) for half the price. FYI... The SIXT agency is located inside the Opal dealership and the sign is not easily visible from the road. My SIXT agent, Winklebauer, was awesome! He made sure everything was tip top before letting me take off in my big "American dream car". I will definitely be renting from here every time I'm in SW Austria.

The service was really good, a surprise after other feedbacks I've received recently (although from other Sixt stores, not this one from Dornbirn). The clerk was nice, explained everything I needed and with something really important nowadays: patience!!! He actually called me explaining the direction where the office was situated (it was located inside a hotel sometime ago and changed to an "external" office from this same hotel building). In summary, well paid, great service, I will return whenever I need.
