Preparing for Graz: Tips & Hints

1. You will find many car rental offices in Graz.

Travellers are recommended to use the services of firms that are located near the railway station and airport.
2. All the taxis work in accordance with a unified tariff system, so taxi rates can only be changed depending on the time of day. Some firms charge an additional fee for luggage. Travellers who expect to make taxi rides outside the city should negotiate the cost of a ride with taxi drivers in advance.
