KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kalmar

  • Car hires in Kalmar offer freedom to explore the city and its surrounding without relying on schedule by public transport systems. Hiring a car for movement in Kalamar provides convenience, especially when travelling with luggage. If you seek to explore the rural regions of Kalmar, finding public transport to those locations may be challenging; therefore, hiring a car will be convenient for transit across the city. You can drive to various attractions, including Kalmar Castle, Kalmar Art Museum, Ekertorp Fortress, Stensö Nature Reserve, Grönhögen Golf Course, and Öland Island, easily accessible by car. You can also drive to the outskirts of Kalmar, including the Granso Castle and the Kingdom of Crystal.
  • Kalmar Airport (KLR) has several car hire companies, including Avis, Europcar, and Hertz. To hire a car, go to the Arrivals area in the terminal building. The car hires in Kalmar Airport desks are close together for easy identification. Ensure you have a valid driving licence, a national identification card or passport, a credit card, and other necessary documents for hiring a car at KLR. You must be 21 years old and above to hire a vehicle from the car hires in Kalmar Airport. The pick-up location for the vehicles is in the car park outside the terminal building.
  • Kalmar is pedestrian and cyclist friendly; therefore, be prepared to encounter many pedestrians and cyclists on the roads, especially near central Kalmar. Be cautious when approaching crosswalks and yield to pedestrians. Also, watch for cyclists, especially on the shared paths and the designated bike lanes. During winter, from December to February, driving may be challenging as the roads get icy and slippery, consider hiring a car with winter tyres to navigate the slippery surfaces easily.
  • Rush hours in Kalmar, Sweden, run from around 07:30 to 08:30 and 16:00 to 17:30 during work commute periods. Navigating most streets may be challenging during rush hours, and you will encounter delays. Avoid major routes, including E22, the main highway passing through Kalmar, and streets, including Norra vägen, Storgatan, and Ölandsgatan, as they experience heavier traffic during rush hours. When visiting Kalmar during summer, you will encounter many road-construction works, which may cause traffic and temporary diversions. Ensure you check out for construction signs when driving.

Pros:

Good price, good car. Location was within walking distance of the University.

Cons:

Paid for Allianz insurance on Kayak but couldn't document it, so had to pay Hertz for their insurance as well. Price was not bad, but it seemed silly. Long wait to pick up and drop off. Maintenance light was on.
