KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Trondheim

  • Car rentals in Trondheim provide several advantages over public transportation. A rental car will allow you to explore Trondheim and its surroundings within your own trip schedule without being bound by fixed schedules or routes. Trondheim's accessible attractions include Nidaros Cathedral, the Old Town Bridge, and Kristiansten Fortress. In addition, a Trondheim car rental offers a hassle-free way to transport luggage, making it suitable if you are traveling with heavy bags or equipment. Moreover, a rental car provides a comfortable and private mode of transportation, as you get to enjoy the privacy and personal space of your own vehicle, avoiding crowded buses or trains. Having a rental car eliminates the need to navigate multiple bus or tram lines, simplifying the transportation process and saving time.
  • Trondheim Airport (TRD) is the main international airport serving Trondheim and surrounding regions. For those planning flights to Trondheim, Norway, TRD will be your destination airport. Upon arrival at TRD, you'll access many Trondheim car rental options at the operating desks in the arrivals area. The car rentals in Trondheim available at TRD include Budget, Hertz, Europcar, Avis, Sunnycars, Keddy by Europcar, and SIXT. The car rental desks are easily accessible upon exiting the baggage claim area. The desks have professional personnel who will help you with the rental process, answer questions, and provide guidance on vehicle selection.
  • In Trondheim, driving features a strong adherence to traffic rules, contributing to safety on the roads. Drivers in Trondheim always follow the traffic rules, including adherence to speed limits, yielding right of way, and using indicators while changing lanes. The city's traffic flow is generally smooth and orderly, with minimal instances of aggressive driving. Everyone expects Trondheim car rentals to follow these same rules. Pedestrians and cyclists are also respected on the roads, and drivers demonstrate a high level of awareness and concern for their safety. Trondheim's comprehensive signage system and distinct road markings facilitate an easy navigation experience for your car rental in Trondheim.
  • Rush hour in Trondheim occurs during the morning and afternoon peak commute times, when people are heading to and from work or school. In the morning, rush hour starts around 7:30 am and lasts until around 9:00 am. During this period, the roads leading into the city center, including E6 and Ring 3, encounter heavy traffic congestion, especially at major intersections. In the afternoon, the evening rush hour begins around 3:30 pm and lasts until around 6:00 pm, as people leave work and schools, increasing traffic volume significantly and resulting in congestion on major routes. Consider driving your car rental in Trondheim during off-peak hours to avoid the rush hour traffic.

Pick-up staff in Trondheim were efficient; process went smoothly. No pressure to buy liability insurance that I already had from credit card. Car was excellent; I have looked into buying the same plug-in hybrid SUV model upon return, liked it that much. Drop-off at the airport in Alesund was easy because I had read online in advance what the procedure was. Otherwise it could have been confusing as not a lot of signage. But all the car rental companies suffered equally from this.

Would like to have actual address on the receipt and rental agreement. Had to go through many emails to find original confirmation to find address to return the car to.
