Krakow John Paul II Intl Airport Car Hire


Located some 11km west of Krakow, in the town of Balice, Krakow John Paul II International Airport is Poland’s second busiest airport, serving southern Poland. In 2019, the airport handled more than 8 million passengers on both domestic and international routes.

Krakow itself is a stunning city - often cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe - which dates back to the 7th century. Formerly the capital city of Poland, Krakow is brimming with cultural and historical significance, as well as being a haven for artistic and academic life. The Wawel Castle, Pieskowa SkaBa Castle, and Tyniec Abbey are absolute must-see attractions for their incredible architecture and surroundings.

What things should I consider when selecting my Krakow Car Hire?

How many people are in your party and how much luggage do you have? A larger party with more luggage will need a larger vehicle than a single person or couple with just a few pieces of luggage. Knowing how much space you need is key in selecting the right vehicle.

Another thing to consider is which fuel policy is best for you. A ‘full to full’ policy is most common, where you’ll be expected to return the car at the same fuel level it was when you picked it up, i.e. with a full tank. However, other fuel policies may be available.

Lastly, where do you want to collect and return your vehicle? Airport pickup and drop-off is the most convenient but not the most cost-effective option, so you’ll need to decide whether the cash or the convenience is most important for you.
