Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Bergen car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Bergen.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bergen car rental.

Bergen is best suited for small to medium-sized vehicles such as coupes, sedans, compacts, and mid-sized SUVs. This is because many of the streets in Bergen are on the narrower side. Having a smaller car is also an advantage when it comes to parking, as many of the parking spaces will be on the smaller side. Hatchbacks are one of the more common choices for Norwegian drivers, meaning it is also something to keep in mind.
Built-up areas and residential areas in Bergen typically feature speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph), while in less populated areas they go up to 80 km/h (50 mph). Additionally, on major motorways the speed limit goes up to 110 km/h (68 mph).
Petrol prices in Bergen are somewhat high, with the average price per liter at 16 NOK ($1.87), or 60.56 NOK ($7.06) per gallon of gas. Compared to petrol prices seen elsewhere in Europe, such as Cork, where petrol is €4.73 ($5.36) per gallon, and Brindisi, where petrol is €6.39 ($7.23), Bergen’s petrol is expensive but not abnormally so.
Parking is a very simple affair in Bergen, thanks to the abundant parking spaces in the town. Streetside parking, parking garages, and lots are all readily available for drivers. In general, streetside parking is the most common choice, especially in residential areas. In the central business district, however, parking garages reign supreme and are often the best choice.
