Best time to visit Albania

With its hot Mediterranean summers and mild coastal winters, Albania is no different from Croatia or Italy. Unless you venture into the snow-capped mountains that do get a fair share of cold weather even in summer months. We recommend visiting Albania between Spring and Autumn for the best experience.

Getting around Albania

Did anyone say road trip? In our opinion, there really isn’t anything that could top the self-drive experience. The sense of adventure combined with the absolute freedom adds a lot of points to what already looks like an epic holiday. Driving in Albania is quite different to driving in the UK, but very little traffic and stunning views make it worth stepping out of your comfort zone! Find out more about our car hire options.
