In Norway, cars drive on the right side of the road and pass on the left. Speed limits in Norway range from: 50km per hour in town centres to 90km or 100km per hour on the highway. It is mandatory for all vehicles on the roads in Norway to drive with dipped headlights at all times and winter tyres are required from the end of the European autumn to the beginning of spring. Seatbelts are mandatory for both the driver and passengers. Children under 4 years of age must sit in a child seat.
In Norway, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection are included in our Auto Europe rates. The CDW and theft protection reduces the deductible (responsibility of the client) to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in your car rental. Personal Effects Protection ensures select items if stolen from the rental car and is available with select suppliers. Personal Accident Insurance is also available locally with select suppliers. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only, rates subject to change without notice.
Oslo is the capital of Norway, and also the centre for most of the economy and education in the country. The city is a mixture of old and new with modern architecture found alongside exquisite examples of 18th and 19th-century buildings. Drive your rental car to the Bygdov Peninsula, just outside the city, where you will find a wide range of museums. To find out a little about the nation, visit the Museum of Cultural History, an outdoor museum with many replicas of early settlements. Also, check out the Viking Ship Museum which houses 3 of the best preserved Viking ships in existence and offers a great insight into the early days of Scandinavia.
The main attraction for visitors to Norway is the vast natural beauty that is found across the country. West of Oslo you will find the Voringsfossen Waterfall, the largest in Norway. At over 180 metres tall, it is a spectacular sight and highly recommended. In the north of Norway, you will find the Jostedal Glacier National Park, set around the largest glacier in continental Europe. Stop off at Briksdal Glacier, which is an arm of the larger ice mass, and here you can see the magnificent formation up close.
Further north of Briksdal Glacier is Trollstigen Mountain Road, a magnificent scenic route which winds its way up to towards the summit of the mountains. Enjoy the spectacular views, before reaching the parking area near the peak. From here you can walk to a lookout area, offering amazing panoramic views of the mountains and valleys below. With such an abundance of dramatic natural beauty, your holiday in Norway will lead you to visit places unlike anywhere else in the world. From the famous fjords along the coast to the vast plains of the east, your rental car will take you to places you have only seen before on postcards.
You must be at least 18 years old to rent a car in Norway, although the age may vary by car category. You must have held your licence for a minimum of 1 year. A Young Drivers Surcharge may be required for drivers under the age of 25. Some suppliers may have a maximum age limit.
Norway has around 50 toll roads. You can obtain an AutoPASS for automatic payment of toll. When you drive through automatic toll plazas without a toll tag, a photograph is taken of your vehicle registration plate and an invoice will be sent to the owner of the car - in this case the supplier - by post and with no additional charge. This applies to Norwegian as well as foreign registered vehicles. Ask your supplier about the different options for paying a toll when you pick up your vehicle.

There are a few things to bear in mind, if you plan on visiting more countries than just Norway. You will need to inform us of the countries you intend to visit at the time of booking and when you pick up your rental car. In general, travel across borders is permitted between west and central European nations. Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel in to certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place. Fees may also be payable to the supplier, the main reason for this is to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area you are travelling to, and locally at border crossings.
