Hertz in Denmark

Denmark provides the motorist with a superb driving experience. Hertz Car Rental operates across Denmark and allows you the convenience and comfort that self-drive affords. Offering excellent value and quality cars, it’s the best way to get around this magical landscape.

From half-timbered villages straight of Hans Christian Andersen to its dramatic countryside of lakes, sandy beaches and important Viking sites, Denmark is drenched in history and beauty. Copenhagen itself was founded as a grim medieval fortress but is now one of the most charming and cosmopolitan cities in Europe, attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Rules and regulations for Driving in Denmark

Hertz has more than 27 car rental branches across Denmark at key hubs and locations, including airports, mainline railway stations and smart hotels, making hiring a car here quick and convenient.

Speed limits throughout Denmark can vary considerably depending on road conditions and proximity to towns and cities, and there are various regulations that are often vigorously enforced. You will need to have a full driving licence which was issued in your country of origin, and must also be at least 18 years old to rent a car in Denmark. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is also required if you’re coming to Denmark from outside of the EU.

Although there are no toll motorways in Denmark you must pay a toll to cross certain bridges.

Denmark has an excellent road infrastructure and its highways and secondary roads alike have good signage and markings. It’s easy to reach even the remoter settlements from the major cities like Copenhagen, and driving is a real pleasure on the mostly flat landscapes of the country. If you have never driven here before, bear in mind some of the more important driving regulations:

• The motorways in Denmark do not carry any toll, but when you cross the Storebaelt and Oresund bridges you will be charged.
• Committing a driving offence in Denmark will not only get you a fine on the spot but the offence may be reported to the authorities in your own country too.
• You must use dipped headlights throughout the day.
• In Danish towns and cities as well as in rural areas buses always have the right of way.
• Cycling is a popular mode of transport in Denmark, as well as being a hobby for much of the population, and cyclists normally have right of way over vehicular traffic, so keep a lookout for them.

 

Driving in and around Denmark

Special attractions

The small and picturesque town of Gjern in central Denmark is famous amongst motoring enthusiasts for its JYSK Automobile Museum. This boasts a unique and important collection of over 160 vintage and classic cars. These include famous brands as well as rare makes and models from the US and Europe. The Egeskov Veteran Car Museum in Kvaerndrup is also well worth a visit. This old castle has a collection of motor vehicles and aircraft spanning 50 years and is set in beautiful countryside surroundings.

If you’re looking for a scenic route through Denmark then look no farther than the famous Marguerite Route, which has official royal approval. It even has its own daisy-shaped road signs and is easy to follow as it winds through some of the most scenic countryside in Denmark, taking in many of the country’s prettiest villages and towns. It’s named after Queen Margrethe II, known to her friends as Daisy.
