Car hire for few days in Albania

Hi everyone! I will be in Albania in November for few days with 2 friends and we would like to travel around the country a bit (lakes and seaside mainly). Do you know is it easy to hire a car with a driver at a daily rate? What is the fair price per day? Maybe you can recommend some drivers (rather from Tirana, as we will start and finish there).

Or is it better to simply use Hertz/Avis?

Thank you in advance!

Hi there. Iam albanian from Tirana and i would strongly recommend that you hire a driver. First you have to be a pro to drive in Albania {lol}. People drive like crazy and only the once that live there know how to handle the situations. I dont exactly know the daily rate but if you want I can find out. And maybe even recommend someone that can be trust worthy and safe. I did use someone to take me places and maybe he can do the same thing for you.

let me know.

Hi! Thnak you for your reply. I am a good driver, but simply thought it would be more convenient if someone else who knows the roads and directions drives instead of us.

Can you please find out and i.e. send me an e-mail of that person?

Thanks!!!

Hey there, it is true that people are driving as crazy here but I have been here for almost a year and do drive sometimes and it is OK. Just you need to be careful and not to drive in hte evenings, it is more dangerous, people drive sometimes with no lights.

I do know few drivers with their own cars that we hire from time to time, they are all good. I might ask them for a daily rate if you'd like. However, I personally I would drive since I always feel obliged to talk to the drivers and to entertain them.

Hi Rozafa! Can you tell me what would be the price to hire a driver? I would assume a daily rate + price per km?

I asked around and it will be 60 Euros per day for car and a driver plus all the expenses (accommodation and food) and petrol.

Let me know if you need anything else,
