If your trip to Tinn is all sorted out but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Head out into the wider area and reconnect with nature with some activities like shore fishing. If you'd like more, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding as well.
If you're looking for a day-trip destination, we've got some suggestions. Sitting 40 miles away, Krodsherad is worth getting in the car for. See the best sights beginning with Norefjell Ski Resort, Norefjell Golfklubb and Norefjellheisen. The locals will also probably point you toward Bø, 40 miles away. If you only have time for one thing here, let it be Sommarland. (But we're also huge fans of Bo Museum and Bo Prestegard.)
Here are our recommendations on how to get behind the wheel of a rental car with extra cash in your pocket:
Sure, you can go and explore Tinn without a car. But with so much to see and do, having one will definitely make your trip all the more memorable. If you're hoping to venture out into some nature, choose a vehicle with some extra oomph. A full-size car or an SUV could be just the ticket. A smaller car, like a mini or a compact, is an excellent choice for travelers heading off on shorter trips.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice important. If you're about to head off on an epic road trip around Tinn, a spacious SUV could be the best solution. If you're looking for the best possible deal and plan on sticking mostly to the city, a budget compact is a clever pick. All you need to do is choose what'll suit you best, throw your bags in the trunk, and start clocking up those miles.
Before you pick up your rental car in Tinn, read up on the local traffic laws. From blood alcohol limits to cell phone regulations, here's what you should know:
In Tinn, you'll have to stick to the right side. When road-tripping someplace new, it's a good idea to select a car with automatic transmission. That way, you can focus on the road and not stress about gear changes.
It's relatively easy to find somewhere to park in Tinn, although you might find it hard to get a spot in the busiest areas. Staying at a hotel that has on-site parking will make things more convenient.
The residential zones in the city of Tinn have a 30 km/h speed limit. Outside these built-up areas, the speed limits generally range between 80 km/h and 110 km/h.
In most cases, your car rental company will charge the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may supply your contact details to the relevant local law enforcement agency so they can send a fine to you directly.
As with many places, normal cell phone usage is not allowed while cruising around Tinn. There is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth functions. Just ensure you maintain focus on the road.
When behind the wheel in Tinn, it's illegal to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) in excess of 0.02%. Thinking of having a couple of drinks with lunch or dinner? Consider grabbing a taxi or using a ride-sharing service.
No, so don't risk a fine by doing it. In Tinn, red means stop, with no exceptions. When approaching traffic lights, always drive at a safe speed so you can easily stop if you need to.
Seat belts have to be worn in Vestfold og Telemark. However, the rules may vary for some vehicles, such as those operated by public transportation systems.
