Top Driving Tips
  1. Driving in Austria is a pleasant experience despite throwing the odd curve ball. Being one of the world's top skiing locations, it comes as no surprise to learn about the tricky conditions during the winter months. From 1st Nov to the 15 April each and every car will require winter tyres but this is more of percussion more than anything else as the major roads (Superhighways & Byways) will always be highly maintained. The smaller roads or when the snow gets intense, that’s when driving can become challenging but the local authorities are well equipped to deal with anything.

At the Airport
  1. The Salzburg Airport in Austria bills itself as a regional airport but it truly is international. With almost 2 million passengers yearly from all over the world, it has become the favourable airport to land in to gain access to the Alps for winter skiing adventures. In fact, a separate terminal is now in use to help handle the influx of winter tourists who come in to ski. For many travellers arriving to Salzburg Airport, also known as the W.A. Mozart Airport, they’ll find a unique terminal that has shopping for domestic and international passengers including boutiques with jewellery, designer handbags and more. Food options include a bakery, grab and go foods as well as a beer garden as well as a world-class restaurant situated inside the airport.

Airport Location  
  1. Salzburg Airport is located a brief 4km distance from downtown Salzburg making getting from door to door quite easy for tourists and locals alike. With its own exit off the motorways close it is typically a quick shot from downtown to the airport.

Car Hire at the Airport
  1. With the majority of tourists arriving in Salzburg wanting to experience both the city and the surrounding landscapes or on their way to one of many ski resorts nearby, car hire is a great tool to get to either an attraction or to transport ski equipment. All car hire is located on the ground level of the multi-storey car park which can be reached by a covered walkway after leaving each terminal. Enterprise, Buchbinder and Alamo all have a desk in terminal with the addition of Europcar, Megadrive and SIXT found at the car rental section.
