Sweden car hire information

As you embark upon a road trip with car hire in Sweden, you will find this Nordic country filled with adventure, beautiful scenery and enjoyable driving experiences. Get cheap rental cars in Sweden and prepare for the time of your life. Before you set off in your car rental, familiarise yourself with Sweden’s traffic laws. Swedes take pride in their calm and well-disciplined driving style, and you will find that your fellow road mates are courteous and kind. You will be driving on the right-hand side of the road and overtaking on the left, and it is important to always give way to traffic coming from the left at all intersections. During winter, with the vastly different weather, your car hire will need to get winter tyres before you set off. Having the incorrect tyres is an offence you could be fined heavily for, as is talking on your phone, not being buckled up and not having children under seven years old in the correct car seat. An interesting traffic rule is headlights need to be on at all times, day or night. So remember to turn them on before you set off in your car rental. Speed limits are moderate, with urban roads allowing 30 mph, rural roads allowing 55 mph and highways set between 70 and 75 mph. Sweden pays close attention to environmental issues, and it’s illegal to stay static with the engine running in the cities, even for a few minutes. Be prepared to drive carefully when you rent a car in Sweden, and you will be comfortable on the roads.

Car rental companies will allow British citizens to hire a car with their home country licence, as long as it has been valid for over a year. You will need to provide your passport and a credit card to complete your car hire transaction.

You could visit Sweden and possibly never see a traffic jam. Like most countries, you will encounter a certain amount of congestion when you rent a car, particularly in the cities such as Stockholm and Gothenburg, but it's mostly well controlled. The country has made huge strides to try and minimise congestion in cities by charging a congestion tax on drivers who enter particular parts of the cities, keeping cars to a minimum. You will find the roads in Sweden are in impeccable condition, well-marked and pleasant to drive on. When you leave the cities, you will be surprised by the number of animals that may cross your path. This can be hazardous to you and your car hire. Badgers, foxes and moose are especially common and rental cars have been highly damaged by unexpected moose in the springtime. Be very aware around the edge of forests and at sunset or sunrise.

You can enjoy Sweden’s scenic driving routes in small bursts or take week-long adventures – either way, there are some stunning routes to enjoy in your rental car. The Express Sweden Route is a well-known 7-day driving tour that begins in Stockholm and travels alongside breath-taking forests, mountains, rivers and lakes through Örebro and eventually Dalarna. Another great choice for a cheap rental car road trip is Road 535, which travels over the mountain pass Flatruet, the highest road in the country. This road trip can take about a day, and you should check the weather before you embark upon the journey. The Blue Road, which starts in Norway, has a wonderful stretch through Sweden, from west to east, travelling through unpopulated forests. It's a well-known favourite for Swedish road trips. The Northern Lights Road is a must-see adventure that starts on the Swedish-Finnish border and travels into Norway. Check with your car rental company to guarantee cross-border privileges.
