Further information to help with your car rental from Katowice Downtown
After you’ve safely landed in Poland and collected your hire car from Green Motion Katowice Downtown, we know that you will be eager to get your car on the road and start exploring the passionate and historical country of Poland.
If you are unfamiliar with driving in Poland, it is important to remember that you must drive on the right hand side of the road. We also recommend that you consider hiring a GPS / SatNav to ensure that you arrive at your chosen destination with speed and accuracy.
Enjoy your car hire in Poland
If this is your first time driving a car in Poland, our advice is to stay calm and take your time. As already mentioned, remember that you must drive on the right-hand side of the road and overtake on the left (however noting that trams must be overtaken on the right). We also recommend for your own peace of mind to consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can navigate around Katowice with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).
Poland is a major transit route for larger vehicles (ie lorry's). The road network is constantly being upgraded and therefore be mindful that roadworks are frequent, particularly in the summer months.
When travelling on the motorways, the speed limit is 140 km/h, 120 km/h on 2 lane express roads and 100 km/h on single lane express roads. The speed limit outside the city and in built-up areas is indicated by signs. For your own safety it is important that you obey the local traffic and speed restrictions.
Should you require any assistance while in Poland, Polish emergency services can be contacted by calling 997 for police, 998 for fire fighters and 999 for medical services.

Mandatory documentation will include:
There is no restriction on who can pay for the rental however on arrival at the rental station the credit card used for the deposit must be in the name of the main driver. The credit card used for the deposit will not be accepted if it is in the additional driver’s name.
Yes, this is possible. If you booked through our website please contact our reservations team on [email protected] however there is no guarantee that we will be able to amend your booking but we will try our best to help.
Yes, you can enter your booking requirements (location, dates, vehicle type etc.) on our website here and you will be automatically directed to our booking options and rates. However, please be advised that our rates may change.
No, Green Motion only guarantees the vehicle category however for an additional fee you can select the make and model by choosing our ‘Guarantee Make and Model’ option during the booking process.
Yes, you can book additional extras or equipment through our online booking process. You can reserve a child seat, baby seat, additional driver and GPS (SatNav). Some additional options can also be booked at the Green Motion rental branch. These additional options will be pay on arrival.
Yes, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.
We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.
Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from £150 GBP to £1500 GBP dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.
Green Motion Katowice Downtown offers their rental customers the opportunity to reduce their excess by purchasing one of our excess reduction packages. Each package provides different benefits ranging from reduction in excess to zero excess. Please ask at the rental counter for more information.
In most cases, each Green Motion location will accept most major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard and in some cases, American Express may be accepted.
In relation to debit cards (Visa), these are typically accepted for the payment of rentals but unfortunately we cannot secure a deposit / pre-authorisation using a debit card and as such require a valid credit card for the pre-authorisation of the deposit. In addition we are unable to accept cash either for the payment of the rental or for the security deposit.
We would ask you to note that in the event that we are unable to guarantee funds relating to the security deposit on your credit card we will be unable to rent a vehicle to you.
Green Motion Katowice Downtown does not hold the pre-authorisation / deposit in our bank accounts. The pre-authorisation is a block of the agreed amount held against the credit card presented by the issuing bank. As soon as the vehicle has returned and we are happy with the condition of the vehicle, we action a release of the pre-authorisation.
The time taken by the issuing bank to release the pre-authorisation on the credit card varies immensely dependent on the bank and the country of issue. Typically, most pre-authorisations / deposits are released within 5 – 14 days from the return of the rental car.
In the event that you feel a pre-authorisation has not been released with the prescribed time frame it will be necessary for you to make direct contact with the issuing bank as Green Motion Katowice Downtown has no jurisdiction in this matter.
In most cases, Green Motion Katowice Downtown offers full roadside assistance and recovery within the cost of renting a vehicle. Further information on roadside assistance is available at the counter prior to renting.
In the event that your journey is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Katowice Downtown. We will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 2 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 2 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.
Green Motion takes customer service extremely seriously and we want you to get the best out of your car hire experience. In the event of our service has proven unsatisfactory, in the first instance you can contact our location directly at [email protected]. Alternatively if we have been unable to satisfy you, you have the opportunity to take your complaint directly with Green Motion at [email protected].
In the heart of Europe, Poland is a country where vibrant cities, beautiful landscapes, rich culture and historical heritage blend into an unforgettable experience.
Poland is divided into 16 administrative subdivisions, covering an area of 312,679 square kilometres (120,726 sq mi) with, for the most part, a temperate climate with average temperatures between 18 and 30 °C (64.4 and 86.0 °F) in the summer.
If you get away from the big cities, much of Poland feels remote and unspoiled. While large swathes of the country are flat, the southern border is lined with lovely mountains where you can spend days, if not weeks, in splendid solitude.
And if you are a lover of home cooked food, then you’ve come to the right place. Polish food is based largely on local ingredients, combined simply and honed to perfection and you must try the regional specialities like duck, goose and trout.
