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 Oslo 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 Oslo.
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 Oslo car rental.

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.
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).
Though Norway is one of the major petrol exporters in the world, the petrol prices are still somewhat high. On average drivers can expect to pay about 17 NOK ($1.98) per liter of gas. In gallons, that is 64.35 NOK ($7.49) per gallon of gas, which is certainly on the higher side of petrol prices in both Europe and the United States.
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.
