    Country Essentials

    Keep in mind that you drive on the right-hand side of the road in Sweden. The speed limits in Sweden range from: City 50km per hour to highways which go up to 110km per hour. Make sure to always keep a lookout for the road signs and remember that each the road rules can change from country to country. Make sure all of your passengers always wear a seat belt, like in Australia it is illegal to have anyone in the car not wearing a seatbelt. Children up to the age of 7 years old must wear an age-appropriate restraint. As always we strongly advise against drinking and driving, police in Sweden are very strict on people who have alcohol in their system while driving (0.2) and it is advised that you stay away from drinking if you plan to drive later.

    Driving in Sweden

    Begin your Sweden holiday by visiting Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, as well as the largest city. Stockholm is sometimes nicknamed "the Venice of the North" and is built mainly on a network of islands connected by bridges, creating quite a spectacular sight. If you are after a great view of the city make sure to take your Auto Europe hire car a short distance east of the city centre to Kaknastornet, a TV tower built in the 1960's which was the tallest building in Scandinavia for many years. The tower has both indoor and outdoor observation decks and gives it's visitors stunning views.

    While in Stockholm make sure to stop in at one of the city's most popular attractions, the Vasa Museum. The museum houses the Vasa a warship from 1628 which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. Another amazing museum to visit is just a short drive north where you can visit the Swedish Museum of Natural history, the museum displays many of the flora and fauna that is so popular in the region.

    After a visit to the tower make sure to jump in your hire car and head north of Stockholm to Uppsala, here you will find Sweden's oldest national symbol. On the site of the old town, you will find 3 large mounds containing the remains of unidentified royals. The mounds were built in the 5th and 6th centuries and are now seen as an important part of Sweden's national history.

    Licence Requirements

    It is a requirement that visiting motorists carry their valid Australian State or Territory driving licence in addition toa valid International Driving Permit which must be obtained before leaving Australia.

    Border Crossings

    If you plan on visiting more of Europe than simply Sweden, there are a few things to bear in mind. 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.
