What fuel policy do you recommend?

We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Norway?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for anyone who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.

Know before you go

Before you begin on your Norway trip, check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
