Best service ever
Pros: I booked my rental for the correct day, wrong month. Pre-paid through Kayak. They laughed with us and said not to worry about it - they had a car and it was fine. Didn't charge us a thing, gave us great driving advice (red always means stop, for example) and gave us a discounted way to cross bridges. And the car was new, clean, and fun to drive.
Cons: What's not to like? Best car rental experience of my life!

19 Sep 2017
Cons: Never received my e-mail receipt for the rental as promised. They couldn't issue one at the counter when the car was returned. I did have them go to the car, review check it out for any issues which they did and and got a clean bill on the returned car. I had them sign the agreement stating so....but still no e-mail of final bill.

21 Aug 2018
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful, and very friendly. It seems like they did everything they could to help us get into an available car that they had.
Cons: I had rented a large seven person van through the kayak website, unfortunately they did not have a large seven passenger van. We had to cram every piece of luggage that we had into a five person station wagon. It was a bit tight. I don’t know if I blame kayak, or the Hertz rental place.

Cons: The new carrental facility at cPH airport has been moved further away from the terminals and can only be reached by the circulating airport bus which seems to be vey irregular. I almost missed my rental a Sunday evening because the bus was not coming.

One would expect more in Copenhagen
Cons: The drop off of car rentals is less than third world. Out in elements. Rain or shine.and lots of rain in Denmark. They just changed a few months ago from not so good system to incredibly stupid and consumer unfriendly. Having lived in Denmark and being married t a Dane, I am stunned by the stupidity of the current drop off, both for those returning cars and those poor souls who work there all day. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

Pros: Gas mileage, size of car, power.
Cons: Damage to windshield, more damage than usual to the exterior of the car (they did note this when I picked it up), no windshield wiper fluid, the electronics set to Spanish, uncomfortable seating in front seats. Drop off was a joke: I had to hand over the key to a guy in an Avis minibus, in the parking lot. I was worried I was handing it over to a thief. No receipt or anything either.

Excellent car for traveling around Europe
Pros: I liked the gas mileage; the comfort from the driver's seat and the passenger seat
Cons: The overall size was somewhat of an issue. The car was advertised as a mini-van, yet was really not much bigger than a Prius or a mid-size hatchback. The advertisement also said that it would hold 7 passengers and 3-4 bags, but that was nearly impossible. Luckily we only had five passengers, otherwise our luggage would not have fit the car.
4.0 Okay

Expensive and not serious staff
Pros: None
Cons: Waited for almost 3hours at the car rental. At some point they almost rented me a basic car for 300 euros
5.6 Okay
1 Aug 2019
Pros: That another employee stepped in after a long wait
Cons: That the number system would have worked. It was my turn but a customer who had taken a number after me stepped in front because he said he was a long time customer. After a long overseas trip and a long wait in line this is not what I expected from Avis.

Amazingly upgrade!
Pros: We got an unepxpected upgrade which made the whole rental amazing! Pick up was a breeze and the staff were very nice.
Cons: Dropping off after hours was a bit confusing, but I was thankful they offered a key drop, considering their office closed at 2pm.

Kayak service very very poor
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: I booked a car using KAYAK website, providing all required information, including where I live. When I went to pick up the car, I discovered that different conditions are applied if you reside in the same country where you are renting the car. E.g.: 100 km/day instead of unlimited, higher price than agreed, etc. Ok, It was written in the terms and condition (a very long document....). But kayak site, AFTER collecting my data (including where I live), showed me a specific price and specific condition, different from the real ones. Kayak took my money but didn't provide me the service !!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Copenhagen

  • Copenhagen has a plethora of sights to offer, from the port, the aquarium, and the Museum of Zoology to the iconic Little Mermaid positioned on a rock. Having your own hire car during your stay in Copenhagen will not only provide ultimate flexibility and your own timeframe to explore the city, but also allow you to venture out into the scenic Danish landscape and find out why it is here where the happiest people on Earth live.
  • Start your journey to Copenhagen hassle-free and pick up a hire car conveniently upon landing at Copenhagen Airport. There is a car hire center located on-site and signs will indicate the way from the respective terminal. Companies like Avis, Europcar, or Sixt provide their vehicles for a smooth 20-minute ride into the city center. Upon driving out of the airport, look for the E20, which will bring you to the heart of Copenhagen.
  • Denmark and Copenhagen are very flat, so there is no uphill challenge when it comes to driving through the city. Public transport is also very well-structured within the city boundaries, so, when exploring Copenhagen, the hire car can also be left at the hotel or at a P+R to avoid driving through the city. When venturing out of the city into the countryside, the roads are broad and in good conditions, providing for a smooth driving experience.
  • Copenhagen can get lots of snow during the winter months, and it only has about 7 hours of daylight. Having on the headlights is a must, so that other drivers can see you, and adapting the speed to road and weather conditions is pivotal as snow and ice can cover the streets. Watch out especially in the morning hours, as plows may not have reached all corners of the city yet.
  • Book your rental car in Copenhagen at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Copenhagen are around 10% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Copenhagen?

For travelers who mainly want to cruise through the city, an economic compact car is the best choice. Business travelers may also want to opt for a compact sports car to add some style to their driving experience. When leaving the city and exploring the Danish countryside, an SUV is the car of choice, as it provides the much-needed road traction. Bear in mind that manual gear shift cars are most common in Denmark and opting for an automatic car may cost extra.

What's the speed limit in Copenhagen?

All speed limits are given in kilometers per hour, as is usual in Europe. Inside the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed, unless indicated otherwise or when weather conditions don’t allow drivers to go as fast. 80 km/h (50 mph) can be driven on rural country roads and freeways allow up to 130 km/h (81 mph).

How are gas prices in Copenhagen?

Petrol is generally more expensive in Europe, and Denmark is no exception. A refill will cost around 10.79 Danish Kroner per liter, which is about $6.56 per gallon and $1.64 per liter. As it is with many European petrol stations, some of them close at 10pm, especially within the city area. 24/7 stations can usually be found around airports and the freeways.

Where are the best places to park in Copenhagen?

Copenhagen is divided into four parking zones: red, green, blue, and yellow. The closer you get to the city center, the more expensive parking becomes. On-street parking is generally pretty expensive in Copenhagen, so opting for accommodation with an included parking spot or choosing a parking garage are good alternatives. Public parking lots and garages include Jeudan Parking Dronningens Tværgade or Q-Park Adelgade.
