KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Oslo

  • Historically, Norway has predominantly used cars with manual transmissions and most of the locals are taught to drive with them. If you are looking for an automatic gear shift with your cheap car hire in Oslo, these days the rental companies have plenty in stock, as opposed to other cities in Europe where they are considered slightly more rare. However, it is still advisable to book in advance and double check there is an automatic transmission for your vehicle choice.
  • Take your Oslo car hire out for a spin on the E18 and visit the town of Vinterbro for the day in just about 30min. Here you can find the TusenFryd Family Park filled with adrenalin-spiking fairground rides. There is also the wild Badefryd Water Park to enjoy if you are visiting in warmer months.
  • If you are driving with small children in your cheap car hire in Oslo, you will find that the road rules are very strict when it comes to their safety. If your child is under 36 kgs or 135 cm in height they will have to be restrained in one of three types of car seats. Babies under 9 kgs need to be backwards-facing in a small baby car seat, larger babies under 18 kgs can be forward facing in a baby car seat and thereafter the child will be in a restrained booster seat. At no stage can the child sit in the passenger seat.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car during your time in Oslo is that it allows you to be free to pop between all of the city’s wonderful sites. For instance, the Oslo Fjord is just outside of the city and is within quick and easy reach if you have car. With a car you can even explore the area by yourself instead of being stuck on a planned group tour.
  • Planning on driving during your time in Oslo? Then your first step is to pick up a hire car after your flight lands at Oslo Airport. Travelers will find the hire car desks located in the P10 parking lot on level U2.
  • If you are arriving in the winter, make sure then that you are prepared for snowy roads. Though the roads are very well-maintained throughout Norway, snow can still pile up quickly at times. Drivers are recommended to check the weather ahead of time before embarking on any major journeys and to be prepared for the weather to turn if there is snow in the forecast.
  • Rush hour traffic in Oslo is not the most severe but it can certainly put a damper on your day. For travelers looking to avoid the congestion, they are best off avoiding the road between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, if you must hit the road during those times, make sure to avoid E6 and E18 since they are two of the most congested roads in Oslo.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Oslo for £41 or less
  • Book your car hire in Oslo at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Oslo are around 26% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hire in Oslo are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Oslo

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

    Smaller vehicles such as compacts, sedans, and coupes are by far the best options for travelers looking to drive in Oslo. The city is designed for smaller vehicles, so drivers of large cars will find the downtown core to be ill-suited for them. However, in the outer areas of the city, large cars become a bit more common. So, if your plan is to go on a broader Norwegian adventure, then perhaps a medium-sized car would be more appropriate.

  • What’s the speed limit in Oslo?

    For densely populated residential areas in Oslo speed limits are typically 50 km/h (31 mph), while in less populated areas they go up to 80 km/h (50 mph). On major motorways the speed limit will get up to 110 km/h (68 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Oslo?

    Streetside parking and parking garages are the most common forms of parking available in Oslo. In the central districts of the city, however, parking garages are by far the best option for travelers as they can easily park downtown and then take public transport to get around the popular tourist areas.

  • How much does it cost to hire a car in Oslo?

    On average a car hire in Oslo costs £55 per day.

  • What is the cheapest car hire company in Oslo?

    In the past 72 hours, the cheapest car hires were found at Thrifty (£33/day).

  • How much is the price of fuel in Oslo?

    The average price of fuel in Oslo is £6.26 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between £75 and £100, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Oslo?

    Economy (Toyota Yaris or similar) is the most frequently booked car hire type in Oslo.

  • Which car hire agencies are at Oslo Gardermoen airport (OSL)?

    The only car hire company onsite at Oslo Gardermoen airport is Thrifty.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Oslo Gardermoen airport (OSL)?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Oslo Gardermoen airport to off-airport locations include Budget, Hertz, Sixt, Europcar, Avis and Thrifty.

  • Should I get insurance when hiring a car in Oslo?

    Most car hire providers in Oslo offer insurance but the level of protection can differ substantially. If you're unsure whether to get extra protection for your car hire in Oslo, check out KAYAK's car hire insurance guide.

  • Is it worth hiring any add-ons with my car hire in Oslo?

    While Oslo doesn’t suffer from the worst congestion, navigation in a foreign city is always daunting, For a small daily fee you can hire a GPS from your car rental company that will help you find your way around, decipher the shortest routes to destinations and even avoid congested areas. It is also worth checking that your car hire in Oslo comes with a spare tyre and a tool kit. Snow chains should be considered if you are planning on going up the mountains in winter.

  • How old must I be to hire a car in Oslo?

    Oslo has one of the youngest car hire age allowances at 19 years of age. You must have had your driver’s licence for over a year and you will need to show them a valid licence, credit card and passport if you are not local. Many companies do, however, charge a young driver surcharge fee to anyone under 25 and most agencies will not allow you to hire a luxury car if you are under 25 years of age either.

4.8 Mediocre

Aug 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

We drove a Volvo V70 in great condition.

Cons:

I was an hour late for pick up and they had given away my car claiming this standard practice and comparing it to a hotel giving away your room if your are late (which has never happened to me). The only option they offered was an upgrade from a compact car to a luxury station wagon at 300NOK extra a day. They agreed on reducing the additional charge to 100NOK a day because they had made no attempt to contact me before giving away my car, but the whole experience was very negative. Between the upgrade, extra mileage, and the unexpected daily toll system fee, our rental cost double the price quoted on kayak.

Pros:

The Ford Galaxy was great for my group of 5 adults. The diesel motor is quiet,powerful and quite economic despite the large load.We drove through the mountains to Bergen and it performed well. The service at the Sixt outlet in Oslo was good although some explanation on the navigation system would have been helpful.

Cons:

The Sixt outlet at the Bergen airport was a bit confusing to find but the personal were very nice to deal with once found.

2.0 Poor

May 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

I reserved an "economy" car, but was given a Mercedes Benz with less than 5,000 km on it. Awesome car - but then was charged additional insurance for it.

Cons:

I called a week before rental to confirm deposit amount so that I would have enough room available on credit card. Also inquired about any additional fees/deposits required at check-in (this was a rental abroad). When I showed up, the safety deposit was nearly 2x as much as was quoted, and 4x the rental price. Also, a deposit was required for toll roads - an additional $100 had to be reserved. Luckily, a friend had an extra card for emergencies and we were able to get the car. We returned the car outside office hours without a problem, but freaked when the final charge came in a week later. The "itemized" receipt was a list of codes that I couldn't decipher. I emailed the billing department (and heard back a week later), the codes were for insurances we had declined (but were applied because we were given a Mercedes), tolls, a parking ticket we never got, and the administrative fees for ticket. THE ADMINISTRATIVE FEES WERE THE SAME COST AS THE ALLEGED PARKING TICKET. I'm still trying to get proof of this parking ticket but haven't heard back. Currently disputing charges with credit card. I'LL NEVER RENT WITH SIXT AGAIN.

Pros:

I had some problems with my reservation and the staff member there (I think her name was Gri )?)) went above and beyond to help fix them. Ultimately it didn't work but her excellent effort is what I remember.

Cons:

The rest of the staff appeared busy but I'm not sure if they were as helpful to the waiting customers - yes there was a line. Also the location is not so easy to get to unless you're aware of the metro lines.

Cons:

The drop-off was a nightmare. The drop-off location was extremely difficult to find, no signage telling us where to park, where to drop the keys, etc. We had to do a lot of guessing and walking around asking and looking for help. In the end, we weren't sure we had done the right thing or that we had left the car or the keys in the right spot. The support phone number had no answer.

It was just a little confusing after checking in at Oslo Central Station finding the car. The Volvo XC60 worked out okay for 4 adults and luggage. (A little more room would have been nice but it was the biggest car that I could find to rent in Oslo.)

Truly some of the most woeful customer experience I have experienced. Upon pick up - the single staff member was beyond rude and unhelpful about all aspects of his job. He could not explain the rental agreement, point me to the car, or walk the car with me for damages. Upon drop off in Bergen, there was not staff to drop the car off too, and days after the drop off, they tried to charge me for a ding that was already on the car despite never walking the car with me. I would never use Hertz again after this experience.

Awful. I was charged multiple additional fees. Hertz charged me a one-way fee that was not in the original contract, as well as a recharging fee that was never communicated on the front end. The gas tank was at 7/8 when I received it, filled it to 7/8 and was charged a gas filling fee. I was also charged an extra $45 administration fee a week later. I will never use Hertz again.

Dollar Car rentals is just a non existing company in Oslo central station, nobody knows about it (station information, even Hertz employees from which I was supposed to get the car, the reservation was not in their system). So I lost one day and never get the car, then had to go to the airport to get a car from another company. I don't know if it's a scam or just a bad synchronization between dollar and kayak systems, but NEVER RENT FROM DOLLAR IN OSLO.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Oslo 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 Oslo.

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 Oslo car hire.
