KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Svolvær

  • Booking a Svolvaer car hire is a wise option for travellers who want to explore the region at their own pace, on their itinerary. Pack your bags and be on your way without delays. Head to a remote place like Lofoten Islands, which is only about a 25-minute car ride away, and enjoy one of the most scenic places in Norway. Or take a day trip to Akvakultur i Vesteralen and have a relaxed boat ride while tasting famous local salmon.
  • A nearby airport to Svolvaer is Svolvaer Airport (SVJ), which is roughly 4.4 km away. Collecting your car hire in Svolvaer is easy directly from the airport, and eliminates waiting for public transport. The car hire companies are located right outside, in their dedicated building. Leave the main terminal building and cross the car park. You'll then see signs for the car hire desks. You'll be dropping off and collecting your cheap Svolvaer car hire from the car park you just crossed.
  • You'll find driving in your Svolvaer car hire is a relaxing and scenic experience that will have you stopping to take pictures all over the place. If you are someone who loves the open road, then you are in for a treat. You'll have strips of road that go on for ages without anything to slow you down. The one thing to be aware of is driving in winter. The temperature can drop to freezing and below pretty quickly, which can make driving uncomfortable in the wrong car.
  • A big challenge for driving a car hire in Svolvaer is the winter weather; it can be challenging and is not recommended for inexperienced drivers. Handling a vehicle in snowy weather, especially while driving on rising and falling mountain roads, requires careful attention. You'll find that the most snowfall happens in December, but the city is no stranger to snow and frost all year round, especially as you reach higher altitudes over the mountain passes.
  • Book your rental car in Svolvær at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Svolvær are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average

With cars like the Toyota RAV4, you'll have enough power to easily handle the mountain roads while having the safety features needed to drive in bad weather at the ready.

  • What’s the speed limit in Svolvaer?

    The speed limit for most roads in Svolvaer is 80 km/h. Driving in built-up areas means a reduced speed of 50 km/h in most cases.

In high pedestrian areas and residential areas, the speed limit can drop to 30 km/h. When driving on the highway, maximum speeds of 110 km/h are allowed. You'll be expected to reduce your driving speed drastically in bad weather. Driving above 40 km/h in bad weather is not recommended.

  • Where are the best places to park in Svolvaer?

    You'll find plenty of on-street parking for your car hire in Svolvaer. It is recommended that you check if your hotel offers a car park as well, as sometimes it gets pretty busy trying to park outside popular hotels, restaurants and shopping areas. It might be easier to park in a car park; if the weather gets really bad, you'll find a covered parking garage is a good option. Some car parks around the city include Offentlig parkering, Postgarden on Sivert Nilsens street and Parkering for Sherpasti, Djevelporten.

3.6 Poor

Jun 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Hertz at this location (or in Norway) has terrible cars. I got a Suzuki that had been recalled, which was never fixed and was not safe to drive. It had erratic braking, warning lights for the malfunctioning radar and brakes went off every 15 mins, no cruise control, no arm rest. Go with Budget/Avis!

8.0 Very Good

May 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Be aware that the car rental desk is across the parking lot from the airport (a very short walk). My reservation indicated that an airport shuttle was necessary. This caused some confusion when an airport worker confirmed that a shuttle "would be right along" to pick me up.
