We’re The Lada Guys…

…and we have a small fleet of Lada Niva 4x4s available for hire.

Unlike many Albania 4×4 rentals agencies, we don’t try to stop you taking our 4x4s off-road. In fact, we encourage you to! If you want to truly discover Albania, there’s no avoiding unpaved and often badly maintained dirt tracks. And there’s no better car for this kind of terrain than the legendary Lada Niva 4×4.

Lada Nivas are small, light, simple and permanent four-wheel drive. They have a low range transfer case and diff lock – both operated by good old-fashioned levers, not tricksy computers. Even a driver who’s not used to such challenging conditions as Albanian mountain tracks can easily understand the basic principles, and drive these little machines with confidence.

Having a serious 4×4 to explore Albania, rather than a standard road car, will be the difference between a normal road trip and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. 

We were chosen by the Dutch TV show “3 op Reis” to make possible their adventure in Albania. Click the link below to view the full episode.

Drive the Legend

This iconic Russian off-roader has been produced since 1977 with only minor visual changes, and is the ideal 4×4 to tackle Albania’s mountain tracks.


For full peace-of-mind, you can purchase 100% cover for an additional €80 when you hire one of our Ladas. Find out more

4X4 Overland Rent

If you are looking for a wild camping adventure then Albania is the perfect country for it, and a 4×4 Overland vehicle is a must! 

Cross-Border Travel

Our Lada Nivas have full insurance for Albania & Kosovo – you do not have to buy additional insurance if you take the car into Kosovo. If you want to visit neighbouring countries, you have to buy Green Card insurance as you leave Albania. We also apply a CBF “Cross Border Fee” of an additional €40 for the countries where Green Card insurance is required.


“Renting with The Lada Guys has been a great experience! Perfect support, fast replies to questions and gorgeous 4×4 cars. Thx to Henry! We will definitely see each other again!”

Pick-up and drop-off

Our cars and equipment need an introduction, that’s why the pick-up and drop-off are done at our office in Tirana close to the city center easily reachable by taxi in 30 minutes from the airport.


We offer a wide range of camping options with ground tents and full camping kits, all the necessary gear for a night in the wild!

Damage Policy

Because we assume you are going to take our cars off road, we ask for a cash damage deposit of €300. This will be returned in full assuming you don’t return with a bag of Lada parts. 

Minor scratches to the paintwork come with the territory and we don’t sweat about them. We do take suspension, underbody damage and flooded engines seriously, though!
