What do I need to hire a car in Denmark?

To book your car, all you need is a credit or debit card. When you pick the car up, you’ll need:

  • Your voucher / eVoucher, to show that you’ve paid for the car.
  • The main driver’s credit / debit card, with enough available funds for the car’s deposit.
  • Each driver’s full, valid driving licence, which they’ve held for at least 12 months (often 24).
  • Your passport and any other ID the car hire company needs to see.

 
Different car hire companies have different requirements, so please make sure you check the car’s terms and conditions as well.
 

How old do I have to be to rent a car?

For most car hire companies in Denmark, the age requirement is between 21 and 70 years old. If you’re under 25 or over 70, you might have to pay an additional fee.
 

What should I look for when I’m choosing a car?

  • Space: You’ll enjoy your rental far more if you choose a car with plenty of room for your passengers and luggage.
  • Fuel policy: Not planning on driving much? A Full to Full fuel policy can save you a lot of money.
  • Location: You can’t beat an ‘on-airport’ pick-up for convenience, but an ‘off-airport’ pick-up with a shuttle bus can be much cheaper.

 

Are all fees included in the rental price?

The vast majority of Rentalcars.com rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees.

You’ll pay for any ‘extras’ when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we’ll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs).

For more details on what’s included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you’re looking at.

Danish cities including Odense, Aalborg, and Copenhagen are all served by trains.
 
Cityscape
In Copenhagen, visit the 17th-century Round Tower and Tivoli’s 19th-century pleasure gardens. Head north to Dutch renaissance Aalborg, taking Denmark’s DSB train to eclectic Aarhus’s half-timbered cottages and contemporary architecture. Between the main landmasses, Jutland and Zealand are Fyn island and Odense’s Gothic Saint Knud’s Cathedral.
 
Landscape
Travel by train through Denmark’s countryside. In the north, cycle across Skagen’s flat landscape and see the waves of the two seas Skagerak and Kattegat meet at a sandbar. Play golf on Jutland’s rolling greens or kayak along Zealand’s Susåen river or Gudenåen in Jutland.
