Ostrava Poruba Guide

Car Hire

Poruba, an area of the Czech Republic’s third-largest city of Ostrava, grew up from humble beginnings as a government-built estate for city workers. Today, this bustling district is mostly known for its shopping options. Visitors with their own transportation can split their time between the eastern city of Ostrava, other places of interest in the Czech Republic and the highlights of neighbouring countries, such as Poland, Austria and Slovakia.

Who to Book With
For such a large city, surprisingly Ostrava is only home to a single car hire company, Autopujcovna Ostrava, which can be found on Jindrichova. The nearest alternative option of note is Carmad, located across the border in Poland.

Best Time to Go
If considering the climate, February, July and November are considered to be the best months to visit Ostrava. During July, the Czech Republic enjoys its summer, which is when car hire and hotel rates may increase, with vehicles and vacant rooms hard to come by if not booked in advance.

Need to Know Essentials
When collecting a rental vehicle in the Czech Republic, it is essential to have the following documents on your person:

- An International Driving Permit
- A valid passport
- The same credit card that was used for the reservation
- A printed copy of the reservation

Driving
Traffic in Ostrava Poruba is nowhere near as prevalent as it is in many larger cities, such as Prague. Due to the age of the city, some roads are only accessible on foot. The Poruba district is more modern than many other areas, however, meaning it can be driven around with ease. As the area is popular with shoppers, traffic can be an obstacle at weekends.

Krakow – Get on the E40 and travel east over the Polish-Czech border for access to Krakow. Poland’s second-largest city is known for its historical attractions, especially those related to the Second World War, and is emerging as one of eastern Europe’s most vibrant tourist destinations.

Prague - The Czech capital takes around 3 hours to reach from Ostrava Poruba and the journey is regarded as one of the best ways to enjoy the country’s scenery. Although Prague is mainly known for its party atmosphere, while being a particularly popular choice for 'stag' and 'hen' parties, the city is laden with art galleries and shopping options for those who prefer a quieter break.

Tourists can take their pick from a plethora of attractions around the historic centre, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Other cities include Salzburg and Graz, with St. Anton being one of Europe's most popular ski resorts.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
