Road rules of Luxembourg

We have put together some key Luxembourgish road rules to help awareness of different driving laws in foreign countries.

These rules are to be used as a guide, please be aware that rules are subject to change and are correct as of November 2014. Please ask your Avis representative if any queries arise.

Please ask your Avis representative about toll charges and road charges before leaving the Avis car hire location and whether snow tyres or chains are needed.

Take a look at our Luxembourg location page for ideas, travelling tips and booking information.
