Bergen is best suited for small to medium-sized vehicles such as coupes, sedans, compacts, and mid-sized SUVs. This is because many of the streets in Bergen are on the narrower side. Having a smaller car is also an advantage when it comes to parking, as many of the parking spaces will be on the smaller side. Hatchbacks are one of the more common choices for Norwegian drivers, meaning it is also something to keep in mind.
Built-up areas and residential areas in Bergen typically feature speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph), while in less populated areas they go up to 80 km/h (50 mph). Additionally, on major motorways the speed limit goes up to 110 km/h (68 mph).
Parking is a very simple affair in Bergen, thanks to the abundant parking spaces in the town. Streetside parking, parking garages, and lots are all readily available for drivers. In general, streetside parking is the most common choice, especially in residential areas. In the central business district, however, parking garages reign supreme and are often the best choice.

8.4 Very Good
Pros:Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Cons:They were unable to give us the size car I had reserved and it was hard to find the drop-off point at Oslo Airport. That may not be Hertz's fault!
Pros:At least they had different car.
Cons:Even though we attached flight they ignored the time we land and gave our car away. We were forced to take 210% more expensive car.
Pros:The pick-up was simple and efficient. The car was brand new and operated well. The drop-off was quick and easy.
Pros:Easy to pick the car up from the Bergen airport and drop off was easy as well. Highly recommend.
Pros:AVIS in Bergen was extremely helpful. Due to the bicycle race we could not return the car as planned. The local AVIS people were very accommodating in agreeing to pick up the car and allowing us to catch our flight back to Stockholm. They could not have been more helpful. The poor rating is solely due to the excessive one-way fees and the failure to explain these to us.
Cons:Nobody unexplained costs for a one-way rental and fact that they could change this fee at their discretion. The Bergen AVIS office increased the one-way fee by 3x (from 4000 SEK to 12000 SEK) without any notice that they were doing that. We did not discover this until we returned from our trip and I checked our credit card statement. The total cost of the 3-day rental was over $2300.00. We feel cheated and taken advantage of and will likely not rent from AVIS again! When I called AVIS customer service I was told there was nothing that could be done....in essence it was our fault for not asking in advance. extremely disappointed.
8.8 Very Good
Pros:Excellent car for driving the Fjords
Cons:Confusing drop off -- directions or signage would have been helpful
Pros:The car itself was fine.
Cons:When I arrived in Bergen, Norway, to get the car, I was charged an additional $167 for "mandatory" insurance, despite the fact that I had selected insurance when I made the original rental agreement. I agreed only because I could not rent the car without agreeing, and my itinerary depended on having a car from that day. Immediately after returning to the US, I researched the "mandatory" insurance, but even Avis was unable to tell me. I am currently in a dispute with Avis through my credit card company. I also received an additional charge of $25.43 with no explanation. When I requested on, Avis sent documents in Norwegian rather than sending docs in a language I can understand.
Pros:Staff were helpful and easy to work with. Dropping off was quick with no problems. Vehicle was in excellent condition and price was very competitive.
Pros:We were assigned a manual transmission car which neither of us knew how to drive and asked for a different car which we were given. The customer service was great and we loved the car we were given
Cons:The address given to us to return the car was incorrect and had us show up at a location that was incorrect. When we dropped the car off at the correct location (which took a while to find), there was a sign on the door telling us to drop the keys off in another location. The other location took us over 30 minutes to find and involved us carrying around all of our luggage all over the street in the rain. It was absolutely the worst experience I've ever had renting a car. I tried calling the 1800 number multiple times and was never able to be connected to someone who could help. I will not be renting from Avis or budget again.
