Car Hire in Belgrade
This information is correct as of August 2015.
Renting a car to explore Belgrade and beyond can be a highly rewarding experience. Even though the city has an extensive public transport system, nothing beats being able to get around independently, with every decision on which road to take and which destination to go to entirely yours. Car rental agencies have locations throughout the city, but make sure to do your research online first. Try using Skyscanner which providers are out there and what deals they are currently offering.

What to expect when hiring a car from Belgrade
Traffic in Belgrade runs on the right hand side of the road. Rush hours are between 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. Driving in the core is discouraged. If you really need to, planning your route is essential. Finding parking on the streets is difficult in the city centre on Friday and Saturday evenings, so you might want to try a parking garage instead. Under the old palace in the centre is a large parking garage with a capacity of 500 cars. Drinking and driving is illegal: if you had more than one drink, it would be better to use a Safe Driver service wherein a safe driver will come to you in a small folding motorcycle, put it in the trunk, and drive you to your accommodation. A modest fee applies.
