Top tips for hiring a car in Lofoten & Vesterålen

  • When collecting your Lofoten and Vesteralen car hire vehicle, you may want to add some additional features to the package. If you need any special seats or ramps to help passengers get in and out of the vehicle, then we recommend that you get in touch with the car hire company directly to see how they can help you. If you want to try and stay cool in Norway during summer, then you may want to make sure that your vehicle has air conditioning. Also, a GPS system may help you get around when driving from island to island in the local archipelago.
  • Most car hire companies will allow you to pick up your Lofoten and Vesteralen car hire vehicle in one place, and drop it off in another, but you will need to confirm these locations with the company. This can be a really convenient way for you and any other passengers to explore the local area, but it may cost a little more if the final destination is far away from the original pick-up point.
  • The roads in this area are generally well managed, but of course, the weather conditions may affect them more. In winter, the area is susceptible to snow, and you should make sure that your vehicle is legally prepared to drive in these conditions, where ice and snow drifts can cause accidents. For this reason, we recommend hiring an SUV or 4x4 in the winter months, and consider a smaller car, such as a compact or economy car, in other months when the weather is better.
  • If you think that you will arrive late to pick up your Lofoten and Vesteralen car hire vehicle, we encourage you to get in touch with your local car hire company, to see if they can hold on to the car for you. By picking up the vehicle when you arrive, you can immediately begin your adventure around the coast of Norway.
  • Book your rental car in Lofoten & Vesterålen at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Lofoten & Vesterålen are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Should I hire a car in Lofoten and Vesteralen?

    Choosing to hire a car in Lofoten and Vesteralen is a great way to explore the local land. The archipelago is home to a number of beautiful natural landscapes that are best explored in the car. You could try and use public transport to get around, but it is more convenient and more comfortable to drive a car from place to place. You can go when and where you want, sticking to your own routine without the restrictions of public transport.

  • What is driving like in Lofoten and Vesteralen?

    Generally, driving in this area is relatively straight forward as the roads are in good condition and the streets are well signposted. The biggest complication can be the weather, as it affects how fast you can and should travel, and you will need to make sure that your vehicle is equipped with the right tyres, and other winter-dependent features, to get around safely. Drivers in the local area are relaxed and generally follow the rules, but still, we recommend that you follow the signposted instructions instead of copying the driving behaviour of the locals, just in case.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Lofoten and Vesteralen?

    While the legal driving age in Norway is set at 18, to hire a car you will need to be at least 19 and have held the driving licence for a minimum of a year. Many car hire companies will also apply a surcharge to young drivers if you are under the age of 25. If you are staying for less than 90 days in Norway, then you do not need to have an International Driver’s Permit and you can show them your British driving licence and passport to pick up the car. However, if you plan on staying longer as a tourist, then you will need to get your International Driver’s Permit.
