Couldn't even get the rental car.
Cons: I went to pick up the car, which Budget/Kayak informed me would be $110 for my visit. I budgeted that much and maybe a little more for fuel and such. When I arrived I was told the third party insurance I had purchased through Budget with this rental was basically useless because the country I was renting in required full insurance coverage at the rental office. I couldn't afford this now over double the cost, and cancelled my rental. I was pissed. My whole trip was screwed up because of the lack of information Budget/Kayak gave me about the country I was renting in and I won't rent from you again.

Another bad experience renting a car...
Pros: The only good point was that as I spotted a rock between the tire and the wheel on the car they wanted to give us, they have been obliged to change us for another car which was really well equipped (4x4 and spikes tires) but we felt it hurt them and after how they treated us, it was quite good.
Cons: Upon arrival, they told us that we had no choice than taking an insurance for the rent. We booked without insurance because we have it through our credit card but they didn't wanted to consider this. They just said "it's doesn't work like that in Norway". Our only other alternative proposed was to allow them to book the full price of the car on my card which is obviously not an option. The attitude of this guy was just unacceptable with this little smile just saying that he was cheating us but as they are alone in town, they know that we have no choice. After being obliged to pay for this insurance which was nearly half of the price of our rent, they bring the car and here it continues: 3 damages not mentionned on the contract and regular winter tires... for information, the road where full of pure Ice and everyone was driving with tires with spikes. Hopefully, I spotted a dangerous rock between the tire and the wheel and they were obliged to change us the car... however, this isn't acceptable neither as they would have give me the car like this which was really dangerous if I didn't checked in details myself. I am of course gone a claim also at Budget directly.

Top tips for renting a car in Tromsø

  • Many tourists visit Tromso to see the spectacular Northern Lights. Other activities you can enjoy here include whale watching, reindeer sledding, and touring the Polar Museum. Many attractions are on the outskirts of Tromso and not in the heart of the city, so you’ll need a car to get there. Additionally, Norway is known for its scenic highways and roads, so you’ll enjoy your trip more if you rent a car.
  • Tromso Airport serves the Northern region of Norway. It is also the largest airport in Norway and offers numerous domestic and international flights. When flying into this airport, you’ll have access to duty-free shops, restaurants, and bars. For added convenience, there are also several hire car agencies located right inside the terminal building.
  • With their tolls, most of the roads around Tromso are in excellent condition. Note that when driving anywhere in Norway, you must keep your low beamed lights on at all times for safety. Tromso is also a pedestrian friendly town, so be prepared to stop or slow down to allow pedestrians to cross at corners giving them the right of way.
  • There is really no rush hour traffic to be concerned about in Tromso. Inclement weather during the long winter season, however, can cause traffic backups and slow downs, so give yourself ample time for travel and drive cautiously. You’ll also want to make sure that you have an ice scraper, brush and a blanket in your hire car in case of emergency.
  • Book your rental car in Tromsø at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
