The most important thing is to choose the right company and the right size of van. In Brno, there are many moving truck rentals (23 actually, would you believe it?) and for someone who doesn’t do this daily, it might be quite a challenge to pick the most suitable van. Prices are pretty much the same all over Czech Republic.
All you need to know to get out of here
All you need to know before renting a car
- The best vehicle size for you
- How many kilometers you want to drive
- How much time you need it for (date and time of pickup and return)
- Renting a truck on your own is the cheapest way to move to another country
- Renting a van and leaving it in another country is possible, but so expensive that it does not really make sense
You might as well chose the rental company closest to you, because you can get a good rate for ½ day. Renting a van for less than 2.5 hours is waste of money, as any moving company in Brno can do all the moving for you for cheaper. We don’t recommend hiring a new car if you have never driven a van before, as any minor collision might seriously affect your financial well-being all over car is 100% insured
For long distance moving, the right size van and a good company are the most important aspects. Note that some companies do not let you use their car outside of Czech Republic (or used special rate for it). Most of them don’t allow you drive outside EU. Most companies have mileage limitation and you pay extra for extra kilometers; other companies offer unlimited mileage. Unlimited mileage is not always cheaper that limited mileage.
You might wonder what those cryptic letters next to vans mean. Well, wonder no more: L stands for length and H for height. So L1H1 is the smallest and L4H3 is the largest. Check out the figures: Always look at the actual dimensions, not just the number of m3, as some companies like to make their cars seem bigger (oh no, would you believe that?). If you are moving a short distance, it is cheaper to use a smaller car and make more trips.
If you are not an experienced van driver, go for a smaller car a make more trips if needed. Big vehicles might be too much fun for a newbie to operate, especially in narrow city streets.

Ideally, make your reservation by e-mail or online, so you are sure your reservation is valid. If you want to rent a van for the last days of a month (when most people move) it is a good idea to book the vehicle about two weeks beforehand. Feel free to contact us, we can help with it.
Highway vignettes and fees
Most European countries have the policy of paying for highways. All vans in car rentals have highway vignette for the Czech Republic.(from 2021 is electronic vignette)
For example in Hungary, you can buy the vignette online. In Slovakia, you can choose to purchase it online or buying the traditional one for the windshield. In Austria, there is only the windshield option. In Italy, France and Serbia, Spain there are toll gates. (France road map with free and paid roads)
In Norway or Sweden you shall register in advance into their system.
You can use the trip planning tool from Google to compare both options and choose the one that works best for you. Especially in heavy populated areas it isn’t worth it.
Dont forget to fill in this document when going over/to Germany.

Highway fees in individual European countries
Highways in these countries are free of charge: Denmark, Estonia, Netherlands, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Sweden, Ukraine, Germany will change soon to pay. Not that you don’t actually save any money by avoiding paid roads in mountain or urban areas.
Cost of fuel
You can save the most by choosing the most suitable car. You can also cut the costs by sticking to reasonable speed and a smart tank policy. In most countries it is cheaper to refuel away from the highway, in some countries it is cheaper on the highway and in some countries it doesn’t really matter.
In the Czech Republic the highways are always more expensive than smaller roads. You can find prices in individual countries here:
Vans have tanks of 60 to 120 litres. So, for example, filling your tank in Austria or in Italy might mean a difference of 50 E.
What to do in the van
What to do in the van while driving
Not many activities can be done while driving. You can ponder about your life in your amazing home. But that usually doesn’t last as long as the trip. We highly recommend saving a lot of your favorite music into your smart phone, or downloading some audio-books to keep yourself entertained.
It can be a bit complicated to connect to an audio system. Audio systems in rental cars are like a box chocolate: you never know what you gonna get.
You might find the following things useful and they cost almost nothing. Car radio transmitter turns your phone into a car radio, you can then tune into the radio station of your phone. Simple and efficient. You can buy them in specialized electro shops or e-shops:
Be sure they will find their way to you. Especially from France, Italy, Germany or Austria, they arrive at the car rental that then the rental company extorts the money from you. Not pleasant. Basic information on regulations can be found here.
For example: in Austria, you need to have as many reflective vests as there are persons in the car. In Slovakia, vans are weighted (you can find your permitted load in your logbook).
Weighting is rather frequent and fines are high, especially if the weight is over 3.5t.
Navigations are no longer needed as you can easily manage with just your smartphone.
We recommend download the map of the trip in your phone and not rely on having always good Internet connection when abroad. Our pick:
When you plan or navigate it is better not to use just Google Maps, but also check out Waze or some other navigation tool as mentioned above. Both of them are in online mode. Date cunsmption cca 0,05MB per 1km
It’s handy to use a car phone holder.
When you plan your trip with Google Maps, remember to count with longer times than estimated as vans travel slower than the car it is calculated for.
