Getting here and around the Norway could be just as fun and easy. There is a vast selection of flights and ferries, whether it be domestic or international. There are also several modes of transportation to get around upon arrival in Norway. However, driving a car can be one of the best ways for you to enjoy the beauty of the country at your own pace.
Just book your chosen model and type of car in many ways such as online, through a travel agent, or in person at their office with your chosen rental car in Norway town or in the airports.
During the summer season, travelers or tourists from around the world can be seen flocking Norway. Therefore, booking a car in advance is of great advantage. You will just be required a full and valid driving license issued in the country where you are residing. The license you are holding should also be issued by an EC or ECA country. However, if you don’t have one, you will be required to present an IDP or an International Driver’s Permit.
You should also keep in mind that most of the car hire or bilutleie companies in Norway require every driver to have the license held for at least one year. Another one is that you should be at least 19 years of age or 25 years old depending on the category of the car you want to rent. If you are under 25 years old, you need to pay a young driver’s fee of about NOK 100 per day to the car company.
Aside from those requirements, you also need to know the estimated cost of hiring a car in Norway. Some companies project their seven-day charge depending on the type of car. For small cars, it would cost around NOK 2,800; for medium sized cars, you need a budget of around NOK 3,000; and for the larger car, prepare at least NOK 3,700. If you are traveling with an infant or toddler, of course you need to have a child car seat and the storage racks. The car hire company will also require extra charges for such add-ons.
In selecting the car company that you are going to hire, check with them about the car insurance. Some companies would require you to buy it or just pay an additional charge. Keep your travel safe by not driving a car without an insurance. Most of the car hire companies in Norway take payments through credit or debit cards.
