KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gothenburg

  • If you want the unrestricted freedom of travelling wherever the road takes you plus the unlimited convenience of setting your own travel schedule in personalised comfort, then car hire in Gothenburg is incomparable. The city of Gothenburg may be your primary destination, but adventures further afield await you on roadtrips to major cities such as Oslo (181 miles north via E6) or to the Swedish capital Stockholm (292 miles north-east via E4).
  • Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport (GOT) is about a 13-mile drive from the city centre, making it a choice location for picking up a hire car in Gothenburg after your flight arrives. Thrifty, Enterprise and local provider MABI are just a few of the companies you can find at the airport’s Car Hire Centre. Whether you arrive from the North or South Terminals, once you are Landside, follow the directions to Parking and Ground Transportation. The centre is located between the taxi rank and the bus station. If you are unsure of where to go, there’s an Information Desk where you can get assistance.
  • Sweden’s second-largest metropolis is an important maritime, trade and banking hub, so rush hour traffic in the morning and evening will be significant in certain sectors. It also boasts a large student population, ensuring a significant amount of foot and cycle activity in addition to vehicular traffic throughout the year. The influx of major tourist numbers during the months of June–September will further complicate traffic patterns as well.
  • Morning rush hours from 07:00–09:00 and evening rush hours from 18:00–20:30 will create congestion along sections of Gothenburg’s three major roadways, the E6, E20 and E45, which move traffic inbound and outbound. Expect major delays at the four interchanges east (E6) and west (E45) of the River Gota, as well as through the two tunnels (Tinstadtunneln and Marieholmstunneln) passing under it during these periods. Another area of concern is the huge E45 loop near the Walckesbron Bridge.
  • Book your rental car in Gothenburg at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Gothenburg

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Gothenburg?

    Larger vehicles such as estate cars and intermediate SUVs have the advantages of increased passenger and storage capacity, which are great for long roadtrips. With a small economy car or compact you have less of both, but these vehicles have the advantages of affordability and manoeuvrability.

  • What’s the speed limit in Gothenburg?

    Speed limits in the city of Gothenburg are dependent on the type of road and its location. On urban roads and streets, the accepted limit is about 30mph, except near hospitals and schools where speeds can be reduced to as low as 18mph. Along rural roads, the speed limit increases to about 55mph, and along primary roads and highways, you can drive up to 75mph. Traffic and static cameras are active on Gothenburg streets, so be careful near restricted areas and road junctions.

  • Where are the best places to park in Gothenburg?

    On-street parking spaces in the city of Gothenburg are indicated by a TAXA meter with a numeral from 1-7, 22 or the letter A to indicate what time limits and tariffs apply. Hours of operation are from 08:00-18:00 Monday-Friday and from 08:00-15:00 on weekends in most places. During the week, TAXA A spots carry a maximum limit of 30min for around 20kr (1.62£), while TAXA 22 spots have a max limit of 2h for around 30kr (2.43£). The tariffs at zones 1-7 vary from a low of 5kr (0.40£) to a high of 30kr(2.43£) per hour.

  • How much is the price of fuel in Gothenburg?

    The average price of fuel in Gothenburg is $11.04 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of uel costs between $132 and $177, depending on the car size.

Wish they gave an option to rent a few more hours without being charged a whole day.

6.4 Okay

Jul 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

No line when picking up the vehicle, and staff at the desk were efficient.

Cons:

The day after I parked the car in the garage and returned it after hours in exactly the same condition that I'd found it, I received an email ordering me to fill out an accident report for a 5cm long scratch on the rear bumper...that wasn't there during my rental. In the photos that they sent the "damage" couldn't even be seen on the overall shot of the back of the car, so I'm not convinced that everything matched up here. To give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe someone backed into the car in the tiny clearance of the garage, who knows. My insurance covers damage, but no one wants the hassle of filing a claim while on vacation, and this one in particular seems petty and opportunistic. I wouldn't recommend renting here.

Pros:

The car. Very comfortable, fun to drive, great features

Cons:

Returning the car after hours was very confusing. We didn't have a code for the garage and had to wait until someone else came along with the code. Also the self serve kiosk was behind a gate so we couldn't access it. The after hours phone number was no help either.

Pros:

The car rental itself was great!

Cons:

I showed up to the location I chose from the map (Gothenburg central station) however somehow my reservation had been made for the airport, which I didn't check at the time. So I had to get a taxi to the airport at 11pm and called the hertz employee to stay past her hours.

The car documents at the pick-up reported only partially the existing scratches and damages … and it took me almost one hour to report it in full (it was impossible to get someone on the line…)
