Important information about Gothenburg car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Gothenburg?

When getting around in your Gothenburg car rental, it’s possible to cross into other regions in Sweden without any issues, as long as you make sure to choose a vehicle with enough or unlimited mileage. As for crossing borders into other countries with your economy car rental, it’s generally possible, for example when renting with Hertz or AVIS, as long as you let the car rental agency know beforehand, although you can be charged a fee. There may be specific countries the car rental companies do not allow driving into or it’s permitted but the car must be returned in Sweden. Nonetheless, check with your agency, before picking up your car rental in Gothenburg, that crossing borders is possible. When crossing the Swedish border as a US citizen, make sure to have your passport and driver’s license with you, and an IDP is recommended.

Can you rent a rental car in Gothenburg without a credit card?

It’s possible to get cheap car rentals in Gothenburg with a debit card instead of a credit card. However, this is not available at all car rental locations in Gothenburg. AVIS is the location with the most flexible payment options. AVIS allows VISA and MasterCard debit cards, as well as Diners Cards and Discover Cards. Hertz, for example, allows some debit cards to make the payment as long as it’s either VISA or MasterCard, has both the issue and expiration date on it, as well as the name on the card being embossed. Some Hertz locations require presenting a credit card at the time of pick-up even if the payment is made with the debit card. Sunnycars, on the other hand, is one of the car rental locations that only allows payment by credit card. Nonetheless, we recommend checking with your car rental in Gothenburg beforehand, to confirm the accepted methods of payment.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Gothenburg?

Before driving around in your car or passenger van rental, make sure you know the basic rules of the road in Sweden. The main thing is that they drive on the right-hand side of the road and use the metric system. The signs and speed limits will be indicated in kilometers. It’s possible to get a standard car rental in Gothenburg if you are over the age of 18. However, between ages 18 and 25 you will be charged a young driver fee. All passengers of the car must be wearing their seatbelts at all times. Of course, do not drink and drive. Sweden has zero tolerance for driving under the influence and it’s illegal to be behind the wheel with 0.02% BAC or more. Check with the local department of motor vehicles to get more info and road tips.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Gothenburg?

If you’re renting a car in Gothenburg as a US citizen, make sure you have the correct documentation before going to pick up your vehicle. You will be required to present a valid US driver’s license and possibly your passport as well. If you’re renting the vehicle with a US driver’s license you most likely won’t need an International Driver’s Permit, since it’s in English, to accompany your original document. Nonetheless, confirm with your car rental agency beforehand to make sure you don’t need any specific documentation. Many agencies require the name on your credit card to coincide with the name of the main driver and their driver’s license.
