    Driving information Serbia

    General Information

    Serbia is divided into two distinct geographic segments. In the north you will find flat farmland as far as the eye can see. If you travel south you will see impressive mountains and green forests. Keep an eye on your gas tank, as there are not many petrol stations located outside of the larger cities. The roads are often in bad condition and we recommend you to drive carefully and defensively.

    Requirements
    To be able to drive a car hire in Serbia, you must be at least 21 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 2 years. For drivers under the age of 25 an additional young driver surcharge may apply locally.

    Speed Limits
    Speed limits in Serbia are:

    • Town and city: 60 km/h
    • Open Roads: 100 km/h
    • Motorways: 120 km/h

    Traffic restrictions
    In Serbia you drive on the right side of the road. Trams always have the right of way. Dipped headlights should be used at all times. Talking in a hand held mobile phone is banned. Children under the age of 12 must be seated in the back seat. Small children travel in car safety seats.

    Petrol
    Petrol stations are open between 08:00 to 18:00 and closed during the weekend. Petrol stations in larger towns such as Novi Sad and along the motorway are open also during weekends.

    Tolls
    In Serbia there is a toll for driving on motorways. You pay the toll when passing through the toll gates. Make sure you have cash, either in local currency or in Euros.

    Parking
    In the capital Belgrade you can park in different zones. Red zone means parking for 1 hour is allowed, yellow zone is for 2 hours parking and green zone is for 3 hours parking. If you wish to park longer you can use the public parking lots. It is more expensive, but keep in mind that cars are often towed and you will be fined if overstaying the limit.

Please note that you may not take your rental car on a ferry. Due to insurance regulations, there are restrictions on luxury car categories and on travel in certain countries. Please take a moment to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to book.
