Car hires in Oslo: practical information

Where to rent a car in Oslo

Planning a visit to Norway? Then you should also make sure you visit Oslo. The capital of Norway is one of the most expensive cities in the world but it’s always worth a visit. Oslo is home to a number of historic landmarks, museums and if you’re not careful the city can give your purse a run for its money… literally!

If you want to explore beyond Oslo then you should probably pick up an Oslo rent car. Oslo is the perfect jumping off point for trips around Norway’s stunning landscapes. Oslo Airport offers plenty in terms of cars and prices. Make sure you compare prices before leaving!

Driving in Oslo: parking and other tips

A hotel with free parking will help you save a lot of money on your holiday in Oslo. Keep in mind that Norway and Oslo have a blood alcohol level of 0.01 so better not to drink at all if you plan on driving.

Most all major cities, bridges and tunnels in Norway require a toll to be paid upon entering so make sure you keep spare change available to pay these. In Oslo, keep your hands-free headset handy if you need to use your mobile phone.

Oslo

Oslo

When you visit Olso for the first time, it’s good to keep at least two days to discover the city. Enjoy fantastic views of Oslo’s harbour from the top of Akershus Fortress and don’t forget a stop at the Royal Palace. If you get peckish, then the Aker Brygge will certainly please.

Fredrikstad

Fredrikstad

The city is home to probably the best preserved fortress and moat in Northern Europe. The city sits on the banks of the River Glommas and is the perfect day trip while on holidays in Oslo. Its old town charms and historic buildings, galleries and cafes are simply stunning.
