Car hire

Driving a car is one of the best ways to experience Norway at your own pace.

Cars may be rented in every town and larger built-up area as well as airports in Norway. Most models and types can be rented.

You can book your car with a car rental company online, in person at their offices or through a travel agent. We strongly recommend you to book in advance, especially during the summer season.

What documents do I need?

You need a full, valid driving licence issued in your country of residence. Please note that many car hire companies require that you have held the licence for at least one year. If your licence is not issued by an EC/ECA country, an International Driver's Permit (IDP) may be required.

Read more about the documents you need to drive in Norway on the Norwegian Public Roads Administration's website.

Regulations

The minimum car hire age is 19, but car hire companies may stipulate individual limits up to 25 years, depending on the category of the car you want to hire. If you are younger than 25, most companies will require you to pay a young driver's fee of approximately NOK 100 a day (varies from car hire company to car hire company).

Car hire cost

Approximate car hire charge for seven days:

Small car: NOK 2,800
Medium-sized car: NOK 3,000
Large car: NOK 3,700

The hire company may also provide extras such as child car seats and storage racks, which will cost extra.

You should not drive a car without insurance, so check whether this is included in the final cost or if you need to buy it separately.

Payment

Most car hire companies only take credit or debit cards as payment.
