WELCOME TO NORWAY
Welcome to Norway, home of elusive trolls and fierce Vikings, breathtaking sceneries and magnificent fjords, country powered by nature and nature by endless beauty.
From the very moment you set foot on Norwegian soil you will feel it. That sense of something unique. That feeling of unscaled pride in every one of us. Pride of our country, rich in so many ways, but richer like no other when it comes to beauty: the spectacular view from mythical North Cape towards the freezing Arctic ocean illuminated by the midnight sun; the awe-inspiring 604m drop from the Pulpit Rock towering above the Lysefjord in the South; the old stave-churches found along the scenic roads which carve their insisting way through mountains and glaciers; the particular timeless calm that coats the isle of Lofoten.
Come with us on the boat from Hellesylt to Geiranger and marvel at the cascading waterfalls in this UNESCO World Heritage sight. Take the mini cruise to the village of Flåm, hiding in the deepest fjord of them all, the mighty Sognefjord, and continue onwards to Myrdal with the Flåmsbana, manifestation of the most daring and skillful engineering in Scandinavian railway history. Taste the freshness of the ever-near ocean at Bergen’s flourishing fish market and learn about the profound connection with nature that is an innate quality in every Norwegian child. At the end of your journey please bring this serene spirit with you back home – this is our gift to you.

What do I need to hire a car in Norway?
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 Norway, 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.

Eat & Drink
