Lithuania Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving In Lithuania
You can drive using an EU Photo licence. Roads are generally in quite good condition though expect severe weather in winter. Winter tyres are a legal requirement in Lithuania between 10 November and 1 April. Dipped Headlights are also compulsory all year round. The legal blood-alcohol limit is 0.04{7f4422d59222ef42e86be9359b1bf1dbe011d48d1cfdf8d1c820b409fb7ac6f1} compared to the UK limit of 0.08{7f4422d59222ef42e86be9359b1bf1dbe011d48d1cfdf8d1c820b409fb7ac6f1} and the police are keen on vehicle checks which could result in a big fine or jail sentence of you’re over the limit. In my experience there tend to be a lot of police officers even on quiet roads in the country and they’re very good at concealing themselves!

Lithuania Car Rental –
Sixt , Hertz, Europcar, Alamo, National,Avis, Budget,Dollar,Thrifty, have outlets here.Also usually features on Car rental broker sites such as Argus Car Hire and Web discount sites such as or Expedia

These are local companies-

This company can arrange car rental as well as B+B stays though there seemed to be a problem with the car rental element of the website when I checked.

Lithuania Self Drive Rules –
You’ll generally be able to take the car to most mainland European countries including UK. There may be restrictions on taking the car to some Eastern European locations. One way rentals should be available to Estonia and Latvia for an additional charge.
