Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, especially for those who love the great outdoors. You will find plenty of great things to see and do such as skiing at Tryvann Vinterpark, or Jostedal Glacier. You can visit the beaches in Bygdoy, or visit the Tusenfryd theme park. Visit the cultural capital of the country, Bergen, the Ringve Museum, and the Botanical Gardens. Using a rental vehicle will help you have the best vacation ever since you can visit all of the areas you want to see.

Renting a vehicle in Norway

While the minimum age to drive in Norway is 17 years old, you have to be at least 19 years old to rent a vehicle. However, some of the rental companies require that the renters be even older, up to 25 years old in some cases. Customers who are younger than 25 years old will generally have to pay a young driver fee when they rent.

You are required to have at least one visibility vest and headlamp converter in the vehicle. Make sure the rental agency provides these items. You may also want to see if they have some of the recommended items that you should be carrying in the vehicle including the following.

  • First aid kit
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Warning triangle

When you rent a vehicle, you need to have your national driver’s license as well as an international driving permit. Make sure that you have the phone number and the emergency contact information for the rental agency before you leave the rental office.

Road conditions and safety

The roads in Norway are in good shape, and they are easy for drivers to navigate. Most of the roads are smooth and paved, and you will find that the traffic is actually calm in the country for the most part. Most of the drivers in the country are courteous and they follow the rules of the road. In fact, Norway has some of the safest traffic in the world.

When traveling with children who are under four years old, they need to be in car seats. The driver and the passengers need to wear their seatbelts. You need to have your headlights on low, or dipped, even during the day in Norway. Even when the road is clear, drivers cannot cross a red light or turn on a red light.

The speed limits

It is important to abide by the posted speed limits for the roadways when you are driving in Norway. The following are the common speed limits in the country for different types of roads.

  • Motorways – 90 km/h
  • Open roads – 80 km/h
  • Towns and villages – 50 km/h

The road has radar and cameras to help catch speeders. The police are often in unmarked vehicles and will follow speeding vehicles for a while to track their speed and behaviors before they pull over the driver and issue a fine.

Having a rental car will make it easy to travel to all of the interesting places you want to visit in Norway. You could travel from one tip of the country to the other if you would like.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
