Renting a car in Budva airport

Many tourists ask us about renting a car at the airport of Budva.
For this reason, we have to inform you that there is no airport in Budva. There are only two airports in Montenegro — in Podgorica, and in Tivat.
Budva is located 65 km from the Podgorica airport, and 21 km from the Tivat airport.

Car hire in Budva at a small cost – car rental prices

We offer the lowest prices on rental cars. You can make sure of this yourself using a rental calculator online. At the same time, we do not hide any nuances. Everything is honest, understandable, and transparent. With this in mind, rent a car in Budva cheap and without problems!

However, cheap car rental in Budva is also good marketing for tourists. These words are used everywhere by local companies that provide car rental services. If you want to rent a car from one of these companies, it is highly recommended to pay attention to details:

  • For example, car hire in Budva is really cheap, but the mileage is limited to 50 km per day. This is enough only for the drive from Budva to Kotor and back. You will have to pay additional fees if you exceed the limit. Considering that the road to Durmitor National Park and back is approximately 500 km long, it would be cheaper to take a taxi instead of a rented car.
  • There is insurance, but with a €300 or €500 deductible. This means that you will pay for any damage below this sum.
  • Paid car delivery. They often tell you only the price for renting a car in Budva, but there is also a price for the paid transportation of the car.
  • Extra charge for the second driver.
  • A huge sum of compensation for low fuel level. According to the lease terms, you pick up the car with the full tank of fuel, and you have to return it with the same amount of fuel. But anything can happen. For example, you were in a hurry to catch a flight – in such cases, you can pay for the gas on the spot, but at what price?
  • The cost of accessories is higher. Then again, €40 or €50 is the price for car rental in Budva, but the prices for all the accessories (child seat, GPS, phone charger) are shown separately, so you need to check them immediately.

As a result, a “special offer” car in Budva will not cost €40, but at least 60 – 65 euros per day or even more.

Car rental in Montenegro is business, and each rental company sets its own prices. For this reason, you need to be very careful so as not to ruin your vacation dealing with unscrupulous companies.

Useful little things for your safety and comfort!

You can take care of your comfort and safety while traveling in a rented car in advance. The basic rental cost includes only third-party liability cover (some companies also offer fully comprehensive insurance).

  • Third-party liability (TPL) cover is mandatory for cars in Montenegro. If the damage to the car occurred through no fault of the renter, the insurance will cover all expenses for repair of the rented car, and will also recompense the expenses of third parties who got into the accident. If the renter is the culprit, then he will have to reimburse all the expenses out of his own pocket.
  • Collison Damage Waiver (CDW) also covers all the costs of repairing the rented car and cars of third parties that got into the accident. The main difference between third-party liability and fully comprehensive insurance is that the latter covers all expenses regardless of whether the renter is guilty. But if the amount of the deductible (deposit) is being specified, the renter is responsible for the car repair within the deposit. If the repair cost is higher than the deductible, the insurance company will pay the rest of the cost. If the repair cost is lower, the repair cost will be deducted from the deposit, and the remaining funds will be returned to the renter.
  • But there is one very important aspect – neither the first nor the second insurance does not cover damage to windows, wheels, and under-body. You can insure them for an additional fee. To that end, there is a so-called super Collison Damage Waiver (SCDW).
  • Besides, in Montenegro, you can get car theft insurance, passenger insurance, etc. However, almost no one uses them because this beautiful country has quite a low crime rate. Therefore, many drivers leave their cars in yards and parking lots with the windows down for ventilation.

You can also choose additional equipment and services:

Child safety seat
Baby seat
Tire chains
Wi-Fi modem
Ski racks

The cost of additional equipment depends on the class of a car and the company. In most cars, the second driver in the contract is free of charge. But this option might be chargeable in some luxury cars and SUVs.

Car rental and booking conditions in Budva

Car booking conditions are different in each country. In many European countries, a security deposit, which is frozen on the card account, is a must. Also, two credit cards are often required as a deposit for luxury cars. Any fines and arrears are deducted from the reserved account. If you have unpaid fines, the next time, you may be denied a visa to the country. As for Budva, car rental conditions are very simple and convenient here.

Who can hire a car in Budva

Every citizen above the age of 22 who has a driving license and driving experience of more than 2 years can rent a car in Montenegro. Please note that there is no need to get an international driving license, a home country driver’s license is enough. So, to rent the car, you need:

  • Driver’s license.
  • International passport.
  • The voucher confirming the rent (an electronic format is acceptable).
  • Credit card or cash for payment (minus the advance payment).
  • Security deposit, if specified in the terms of the lease. The security deposit is returned at the time of return of the car if the car is in good condition.

You must arrive at the specified time and place, produce the documents, carefully inspect the car (you can make additional photos on all sides, take readings of the fuel and speedometer). If you find any dents or scratches on the car, we recommend you to mention them in the car inspection form. Most often car rental companies don’t even pay attention to minor scratches and damage, but if the car is new and expensive, it is better to protect yourself. The car must contain: first aid kit, warning triangle, reflective vest, spare bulbs, tire chains (if you rent the car in the period from December 15th to April 3rd). Also, make sure to check the type of insurance and the amount of the returnable deposit.
If everything is fine, all that’s left is to sign the contract and pick up the car.

Now, you can have a good time traveling! To make your stay in the foreign country pleasant, we will give you some details that you must know and remember.

Can you travel outside of Montenegro in a rented car?

Yes, of course. A lot of attractions and truly enchanting places are waiting for you in Albania, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. To enjoy all these sights, you must have:

  • Green Card. It is an international insurance that may be issued even at the stage of booking. You can’t leave Montenegro without a Green Card.
  • An indication in the contract. If during your visit to Montenegro you are planning to visit a number of other states, make sure to indicate it when signing the contract.
  • Visa. Planning a visit to a particular country, make sure to check whether citizens of your home state need a visa. To avoid unnecessary problems and not to spoil your vacation, obtain information about the visa regime between your home country and the country you plan to visit in advance.
  • Nowadays, online registration of travelers is carried out automatically, and all data is stored in a single database available to all border guards on duty. Therefore, you don’t have to present any other supporting documents.

On the road, you may need to know the location of gas stations and free parking lots. The average cost of parking in the paid parking lot is €1 per hour. Additionally, we recommend you to prepare a list of parking lots and gas stations in advance or to save useful links and applications on your mobile phone, as mobile Internet in Montenegro is very cheap.
