For some unbeatable views of the majestic fjords, and a selection of UNESCO World Heritage sites to admire, car hire in Norway is a great way to cover some serious ground and enjoy a real scenic treat. Lying on the western part of Scandinavia with its northernmost reaches well within the Arctic Circle, Norway has some fascinating places to explore and is well worth the rather cold climate! Hiring a car in Norway means you can explore just about everywhere its cosmopolitan capital Oslo and its deep forests to lose yourself in reflect two completely different but equally exhilarating reasons to go.
With as much as 20 hours of daylight during the summer season, hiring a car in Norway seems to give you even more time to see the sights! The abundance of Norwegian forestry has led to the expansive use of timber in the country's architecture to this day, and buildings like the Sami Parliament of Norway in K'r'johka are just one shining example of what the country's leading architects have dreamed up. Renting a car in Norway means you can enjoy these sights and many more as you make your way around the country. The beautiful Nobel Peace Building in Oslo for example gathers the world's most important people each year to award the eponymous Prize annually.
The unique landscape and geographical location of Norway brings with it some road rules which drives must take into account. As the country experiences unusually long or short 'days' depending on the season, dipped headlights must be on at all times. Ensure your car is equipped with the correct tyres; in the autumn and winter months you can use studded tyres for extra grip on the roads but these must not be used during the warmer months to save damage to the roads in busier areas. As petrol stations can be far apart in the more remote parts, make sure to keep a good eye on your fuel levels.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
