Hertz in Norway

Norway is a wonderful country for exploring by car, the grandeur of its diverse scenery making any road trip a pure joy. Hertz Car Rental operates across Norway, offering a range of premium quality cars from our branches that make renting in Norway convenient and affordable.

From the famous fjords that dent the coastline to the deep forests, mighty glaciers and great mountain ranges that make up much of the rest of the country, Norway is a region of spectacular contrasts and an altogether fascinating destination.

Rules and regulations for Driving in Norway

Hertz has more than 120 car rental branches in Norway, all at key locations or hubs such as airports, railway stations and big hotels, so that renting a car here when you need one is a simple and quick process.

Norway has excellent roads and as they are all carefully policed and monitored. You’ll need a full driving licence that was issued in your own country, and you must be at least 18 years old to rent a car in Norway. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is also recommended if you live outside the country.

As in other Scandinavian countries where the daylight hours are unusually short throughout the year, you’ll need to drive with dipped headlights during the day, including in towns and other residential areas.

Norway has a number of good motorways and a comprehensive network of minor roads, so it will be easy to get around by car. However, if you have never driven in Norway before you will do well to remember a few regulations:

• Vehicles approaching from the right have priority on Norwegian roads.
• There are lots of narrow, winding roads away from the main conurbations, and the vehicle on the side of the road with a passing place must stop and give way.
• You may overtake moving trams in cities like Oslo on the right only, but if it’s a one-way street you are allowed to overtake on the left.
• Use deflector stickers or adjust your headlight beams manually when travelling by day anywhere in the country.
• All private vehicles must carry a warning triangle and a reflective jacket.

Driving in and around Norway

Special attractions

The Oslo Transport Museum has the biggest collection of veteran buses and trams in Norway. At Horten on the Oslofjord you can drop in to see a display of beautifully restored veteran cars from the 1920s and 1930s in the Horten Automobile Museum. The 45 motor vehicles on display here cover the period from 1900 to 1970, and the model town which showcases miniature cars and railways is the biggest and best in Norway. The Norwegian Museum of Technology in Oslo is also worth seeing for its restored veteran fire engine and antique car collection.

If you’re interested in heading out and finding a scenic drive while you’re here, Norway has some of the most spectacular routes in Europe. The famous Aurlandsfjellet Route is one of the best of them, taking in the stunning Naeroyfjord, the Aurland mountain and a landscape of waterfalls, rivers and sheer river valleys. Much of the route is a World Heritage Site, and on the way you’ll pass through the charming traditional village of Flam next to the fjord.

Quick Information:

• Minimum car rental age: Minimum car rental age is 18 years old for cars in the Peugeot V-Clic class. Cars such as the VW Golf require an age of 25 years, although this is reduced to 19 years on payment of a young driver surcharge of NOK 130 (including tax) to a maximum of NOK 1300 (including tax) per rental.
• Average speed limits: the average speed limit in Norway is 100 km/h on motorways, and 50 km/h in built-up areas, though this can reduce to 30 km/h in some areas.
• Toll roads and costs: Tolls in Norway only apply to some ring roads, and disabled drivers are exempt.
• Required documents:
Renting a car and driving it in Norway requires the following documents: Valid driving licence valid for at least 1 year, or an equivalent driving license issued in the European Union.
- For anyone who lives outside of Norway an International Driving Permit is recommended but not compulsory. The IDP is not sufficient without the full licence.
- You will also need to show a valid passport, and a credit or debit card is accepted for making payments.

• Refuelling at petrol stations: Fuel is available throughout Norway, even in the more remote areas. Normal opening hours are between 7.00am and 10.00pm (Monday – Saturday) or 11.00pm (Sunday), although in cities like Bergen and Oslo they’re often open 24/7.
• Travelling with children: Children younger than 3 years need to be in child restraints, and if travelling in front the child should face backwaters and the airbag should be deactivated.
