Good location at the airportWe 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,

Easy to pick up drop off, clean, full tank of gas.Was an old car, had been poorly maintained. One headlight was out, and the brakes made a horrible grinding noise. I was worried about safely driving- I tried to contact the local budget office about switching cars but they never returned my call/email.

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.
4.8 Okay1 Sep 2019
Rental center is right next to terminal, easy process to pick up car.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.

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
5.6 Okay23 May 2019
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.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.
7.6 Good27 Nov 2018
The car was comfortable and drove well, although there was no clock, and I tried every option!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.

Pick-up and drop-off were simple and easy. Car was clean. All marks/dents were accurately captured on the pickup form.Car was very small - we had booked a Kia Rio, whereas we received a Kia Picanto (Rio has much more space than the Picanto).

  • 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.
