What are the best road trip destinations near Riga?
The best part about having your own car is that you can travel anywhere, anytime. Make full use of your newfound freedom by checking out all that there is to do in Jurmala. It’s just 18 miles away. Kemeri National Park, Kmeri Forest house and Sulphur Water Spring Lizzard alone justify the drive. The locals will also likely point you toward Jelgava, 25 miles away. If you can only find time for one attraction here, let it be Jelgava Palace. (But we’d also recommend St. Simeon and St. Anna Orthodox Church and Academica Petrina.)

  • Riga Congress Centre (0.5 miles away).

What kind of rental car should I get for Riga?
Riga is big. You could chill out for a week or two here and barely scratch the surface. If you’d like to take in as much as possible in this busy metropolis, you’ll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving around big cities often goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. Don’t worry though, because a small, economical car can make this much easier to manage. If you’re in the mood to venture out of the city and see the sandy shores that Riga is known for, you’ll probably prefer a car with more room. A full-size or mid-size SUV will get you around comfortably.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Riga?
For some of us, owning a prestige vehicle is the stuff of fairy tales. But renting your dream ride is well within your grasp! Imagine the joy of tearing down the open road in a high-end sports car, even if it’s only for a day or two. Or maybe all you want is a reliable set of wheels to bring you safely from point A to point B. Flashy or thrifty? Whatever you decide, there’s a rental car to suit your style in Riga.
Is it difficult to park in Riga?
Being a city on the smaller side, finding a place to park the car in Riga is relatively stress-free. Once you’ve scored one, carefully check the signs nearby. You may be hit with a fine if you ignore the rules and regulations.
Does Riga have peak-hour traffic?
One of the great things about road tripping around a smaller city is less traffic, so don’t stress too much about peak-hour gridlock. With a population of around 742,600, you can look forward to a smooth Riga driving experience.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in Latvia?
Generally, your rental company will bill the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact details to local authorities so they can issue a fine to you directly.
