Top tips for hiring a car at Sørvágur Vágar airport

  • Given the Faroe Islands’ remote location, public transport from Sørvágur Vágar Airport (FAE) can be limited. You may also find that parts of the islands are not accessible via public transport or that there are long gaps between transport links in rural spots. This makes car hire at Sørvágur Vágar Airport the ideal option for exploring the Faroes, as it will allow you to discover remote locations and explore the islands in your own time.
  • Despite the remote situation, Sørvágur Vágar Airport car hire has plenty of options for after-hours pick-up and returns. When you hire a car with companies such as Avis and SIXT, you can make use of their 24h returns option. SIXT also offers out-of-hours pick-up on request, for a small additional fee.
  • When returning your car to Vágar Airport, you will need to drop your vehicle off at the airport’s Car Rental Centre. This centre is located just outside the main terminal and to the left. If you are travelling towards the airport from the east, along the number 11 road, you should turn left opposite the Krigssavnio Museum. From here, drive straight until the road forks and then take the left again, travelling away from the signs for airport parking. This will lead you to the car rental drop-off zone. If you are travelling from the west, along the 45, you should join the 22 just beyond the Visit Vagar tourist office and follow this road along until you reach the Krigssavnio Museum.
  • Car hire at Sørvágur Vágar Airport is highly convenient because of the airport’s roadside location. Leaving FAE by road gives you access to the number 11 route, which connects Vágar with nearby islands via a traffic bridge network. Following this route, you can drive right across the Faroe Islands to Vidoy, the most northerly Faroe Island that is accessible by car. Perfect if you want to take your time and enjoy soaking up the local sites.
  • Book your car hire at Sørvágur Vágar airport at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Great staff, great car and great experience all in all. But I want to went some of my frustrations about car rental companies in general: I do though think it is unfair to charge drivers under a certain age an extra fee, it makes no sense. Shouldn’t it rather be based on when you got your driving licence? A 24 year old person who has been driving for 7 years is certainly a better driver than a 27 year old who got their licence a week ago. If you’re basing it on statistics, that younger drivers are more likely to be reckless - then you should also charge all male drivers an extra fee because they are statistically much more likely to cause accidents than women.

Good location at the airport

Cons:

We got a ticket at the harbor in Tórshavn. I called Budget and was told they would take care of it when we returned the car. They DID NOT tell us they would charge double for the service. Not good,

KAYAK

Pros:

Rental center is right next to terminal, easy process to pick up car.

Cons:

Rental car segment said passenger van and had a picture of a large van. We arrived and were told we had a small hatchback with 5 seats. We would not have booked with Avis at the price given if they communicated the vehicle class properly. Very disappointed, we felt tricked by Avis.

Cons:

We were told tank was full and return it the same, however when we got to the vehicle it was 3/4 full. Overall not a huge issue

KAYAK

Pros:

staff was nice but scared me into buying daily insurance even though had purchased my own, which made the rate jump higher than I had budgeted for.

Cons:

They should honor other car insurances. And be more up front with the billing process. Basically I signed a contract that was not filled out with proper numbers. This was at this airport. I had just landed from a 13 hour trip and did not want to deal with this.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was comfortable and drove well, although there was no clock, and I tried every option!

Cons:

The oil was so dangerously low on the car, it took two containers to get it to a safe amount. It took my morning of finding a gas station, then a car shop because the gas station did not have the correct oil, etc. Had I ignored the warning, they said I would have burned out the engine and been stranded. They should not assign the car without running it through basic maintenance checks after each use based on mileage or something of the sort. The oil was so low this should not have been missed. I was in a foreign country with no cell service, and this could have been very dangerous, and even more expensive. Not happy.

My experience with Avis on the Faroe Islands was fantastic. Despite the remote location and the small airport, the Avis experience was as it should be. The representatives were kind, thorough, and helpful during pick-up and return. I would rent from Avis in the Faroe Islands again.

Could not believe how expensive rental cars have gotten but that's not the agency fault. Avis in the Faroe islands was typical of most places but staff seemed like they just did not want to be there.
