KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gothenburg

  • To rent a cheap car hire in Gothenburg, you will typically need to meet the minimum age limit of 18 years, although various rental agencies will require you to be at least 21 or 25 years old, depending on the car category. You will also need a valid driver's licence from your home country or an International Driving Permit (IDP) and an active credit card to issue a deposit when you pick up the car. Additionally, you will need to have car insurance, which may be included in the rental price or you may need to purchase it separately.
  • It is important to note that there is a congestion tax in Gothenburg that is used to promote sustainable transportation and improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to the city. In addition to the exemptions for emergency vehicles and those with disabilities, there are also exemptions for certain types of vehicles used for public transportation, such as buses and taxis. The congestion tax in Gothenburg is similar to other congestion pricing systems used in cities around the world, such as London's Congestion Charge and Stockholm's Congestion Tax, so always be prepared to pay this charge as you ride in your Gothenburg car hire.
  • The law requires children under 135 cm in height to use a car seat appropriate for their age, height and weight while riding in a cheap car hire in Gothenburg. Children weighing up to 13 kg are required to use a rear-facing car seat, while children between 9 to 18 kg may use a forward-facing car seat. Booster seats are required for children over 3 years old who are between 15 kg to 25 kg and up to 135 cm tall. It is important to note that different car seat designs have different specifications so it is best to read the manufacturer's guidelines.
  • If you want the unrestricted freedom of travelling wherever the road takes you plus the unlimited convenience of setting your own travel schedule in personalised comfort, then car hire in Gothenburg is incomparable. The city of Gothenburg may be your primary destination, but adventures further afield await you on roadtrips to major cities such as Oslo (181 miles north via E6) or to the Swedish capital Stockholm (292 miles north-east via E4).
  • Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport (GOT) is about a 13-mile drive from the city centre, making it a choice location for picking up a hire car in Gothenburg after your flight arrives. Thrifty, Enterprise and local provider MABI are just a few of the companies you can find at the airport’s Car Hire Centre. Whether you arrive from the North or South Terminals, once you are Landside, follow the directions to Parking and Ground Transportation. The centre is located between the taxi rank and the bus station. If you are unsure of where to go, there’s an Information Desk where you can get assistance.
  • Sweden’s second-largest metropolis is an important maritime, trade and banking hub, so rush hour traffic in the morning and evening will be significant in certain sectors. It also boasts a large student population, ensuring a significant amount of foot and cycle activity in addition to vehicular traffic throughout the year. The influx of major tourist numbers during the months of June–September will further complicate traffic patterns as well.
  • Morning rush hours from 07:00–09:00 and evening rush hours from 18:00–20:30 will create congestion along sections of Gothenburg’s three major roadways, the E6, E20 and E45, which move traffic inbound and outbound. Expect major delays at the four interchanges east (E6) and west (E45) of the River Gota, as well as through the two tunnels (Tinstadtunneln and Marieholmstunneln) passing under it during these periods. Another area of concern is the huge E45 loop near the Walckesbron Bridge.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Gothenburg for £28 or less

FAQs about car hire in Gothenburg

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Gothenburg?

Wish they gave an option to rent a few more hours without being charged a whole day.

6.4 Okay

Jul 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

No line when picking up the vehicle, and staff at the desk were efficient.

Cons:

The day after I parked the car in the garage and returned it after hours in exactly the same condition that I'd found it, I received an email ordering me to fill out an accident report for a 5cm long scratch on the rear bumper...that wasn't there during my rental. In the photos that they sent the "damage" couldn't even be seen on the overall shot of the back of the car, so I'm not convinced that everything matched up here. To give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe someone backed into the car in the tiny clearance of the garage, who knows. My insurance covers damage, but no one wants the hassle of filing a claim while on vacation, and this one in particular seems petty and opportunistic. I wouldn't recommend renting here.

Pros:

The car. Very comfortable, fun to drive, great features

Cons:

Returning the car after hours was very confusing. We didn't have a code for the garage and had to wait until someone else came along with the code. Also the self serve kiosk was behind a gate so we couldn't access it. The after hours phone number was no help either.

Pros:

The car rental itself was great!

Cons:

I showed up to the location I chose from the map (Gothenburg central station) however somehow my reservation had been made for the airport, which I didn't check at the time. So I had to get a taxi to the airport at 11pm and called the hertz employee to stay past her hours.

The car documents at the pick-up reported only partially the existing scratches and damages … and it took me almost one hour to report it in full (it was impossible to get someone on the line…)

Car hire insurance in Gothenburg

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Gothenburg car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Gothenburg.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Gothenburg car hire.
