The official language of Austria is Austrian German. Be sure you know the language if you wish to visit, or have a translator with you that can help you talk with the locals. Like many other European countries, the official currency of Austria is the Euro. The capital city is Vienna. It is a beautiful city with a population of about 1.9 million, and was ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the world’s most liveable city, tied with Vancouver and San Francisco. It’s one of the world’s premier destinations for international congresses and conventions, attracts over 6.8 million tourists a year, and is regularly praised for its culture and economy. If you plan to ship your car to Austria, whether it’s for business or pleasure, we are certain that Vienna is definitely going to be on the top of your list of places to visit.
So, what are the logistics of shipping your car to Austria? For one, it is a landlocked country. Visit our information page for more hints. You will not be able to directly ship your car to Austria by sea. If it is an international shipment, your best bet would be to have your vehicle arrive at a port in either Germany or Italy. Having it arrive through Italy would have a shorter travel distance on land, but getting to a port in Germany may be more complicated. If your starting point is not a country that borders either the Mediterranean Sea or the Tyrrhenian Sea, you will have to have your car shipped through the Gibraltar Strait that is between Spain and Morocco. The strait is what connects the North Atlantic Ocean to the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is a very important international shipping channel. If you decide to have your car shipped to Germany and then transported to Austria, it will be ferried across either the Baltic Sea or the North Sea. The Baltic Sea borders many European countries including Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, and Russia. The North Sea, on the other hand, connects to Norway, the Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom via the English Channel. This sea is your link to the North Atlantic Ocean, so it is your best option for shipping your car to Austria internationally from across the ocean. If you live anywhere in Canada, the United States of America, or any other country in North or South America.
How exactly do you ship your car by sea to another country, including Austria? Well the most popular method is RoRo Shipping, or Roll On Roll Off shipping. Your car is driven onto a boat, taken across the sea, and driven off the boat at your destination. It can then be loaded onto a truck or driven to its final destination, after it arrives in either Italy or Germany. It is the quickest and most reliable option, and we at Cargoux will be glad to help you get your vehicle shipped to where it needs to go. Do not worry about the details, clearing customs, or figuring out the quickest and least expensive route – let us handle that for you! We wish you the best of luck on your trip to Austria, and hope you have a great time.
