Tourism plays an important role in Latvia. In the north, Latvia borders the Baltic Sea and has much more to offer than just untouched nature. Since Latvia is only about 65,000 square kilometers, you can easily discover Latvia by rental car. We advice you to book your rental car as early as possible. Doing so, you can save easily money when renting a car on Latvia.
Also the neighboring countries Estonia, Russia and Lithuania offer themselves for a side trip with the rented car. When booking, however, please note whether a trip abroad is included in the rental conditions. When booking with Driveboo, you should also write in the comment field to the service team that you are planning a trip abroad.
The best way to get to the capital Riga from your holiday home is by rental car. Almost one third of Latvia's population lives there. If you are arriving by plane from Germany, you can rent a car at Riga Airport.
About 73,000 km of roads run through the country, making it easy to explore the whole of Latvia by rental car. Latvia is flat and hilly. With a rental car you should respect the different speed limits in Latvia.
Out of town the limit is 90 km/h and on the motorways 110 km/h. Also with the traffic lights one must be careful with the rented car in Latvia, because there are four traffic light signs. In contrast to Germany, the yellow traffic light may no longer be crossed. The yellow sign in Germany corresponds to a flashing green in Latvia.
Worth seeing is the Statue of Liberty in Riga, which is the largest in Europe, as well as the restored old town.
