Car rental Tirana Airport

You can find counters of car rental companies near the exit of the Arrivals Hall. Four international rental companies are present at Tirana Airport: Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt.


Taxis can be found outside the Arrivals Hall. Some have a meter, but this doesn't mean the driver is going to use it. Make sure to agree on a price before you get in. A taxi ride to Tirana's center costs between 2,000 and 2,500 lek (the Albanian currency), and takes about half an hour. The official ATEX taxis (Tel. +355(0)68 204 598) are grey with a red logo.
