Driving and Parking in Gothenburg

To rent a car in Gothenburg, you’ll need to be aged between 25 and 70 and have the full UK driving license. In addition, you’ll need your passport and an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Gothenburg, take a look at our page about renting a car in the Sweden.

With a small population, Gothenburg’s roads are relatively clear and easy to navigate. For those who’ve never driven in Sweden before, the golden rule is that you drive on the right and overtake on the left. In addition, you must keep your headlights on and dipped throughout the hours of daylight. You’ll also find that the city is home to a network of trams; these can be overtaken on the right if the position of the tracks allows it.

There are plenty of parking meters in Gothenburg, making finding a spot to leave your car fairly simple. The meters’ hours of operation tend to be between 08.00am and 6.00pm. During some holidays and on Sundays the hours of operation change, so it’s worth looking at any signs before you pay.

When renting a car in Gothenburg, you’ll see that parking is on the right-hand side of the road. Meters are labeled ’TAXA’, followed by a number from one to seven or the number 22. The number of your chosen TAXA designates the fee for the length of time you wish to park. The majority of parking meters in Gothenburg accept Swedish Krona and a few will accept debit and credit cards too.

The city operates a congestion charge, which comes into effect between 6.00am and 4.29pm. This charge does not apply at weekends or during the month of July.

Driving in and around Gothenburg

Key Routes

Gothenburg’s road system is uncomplicated and well signposted. The main shopping area and central attractions are served by larger roads, including Vastra Sjöfarten, Odinsgatan and Aschebergsgatan. You’ll quickly discover that these roads feed into smaller roads, which are arranged in blocks, making finding where you’re going relatively simple. If you’re looking to get out of the city and explore the countryside then Vastra Sjöfarten, Ullevigatan, Friggagatan, Orgrytevägen, and Djurgärdsgarten will take you to the main highways.

Major Highways

The E6 highway loops around Gothenburg and gives you access to both the north and south of the country. The beautiful, medieval town of Kungälv is less than half an hour’s drive away. To the south you’ll find Kungsbacka – also less than 30 minutes’ drive. Close to Kungsbacka there’s the grandeur of Tjolöholm Castle to explore and, to the west you’ll find Särö, which is home to some of Sweden’s best and most secluded beaches.

The E20 highway serves the north-east of the country, which will take you through some spectacular scenery, from dense forests to snow-capped mountains.
