Top tips for renting a car in Lofoten & Vesterålen

  • Driving in Lofoten & Vesterålen is fun, but only if you operate within the stipulated speed limits. Like other towns in Norway, you will be required to maintain a speed of 50 mph (80 kph) except for in town centers and built-up areas where it is 30 mph (48 kph). However, you gas press your pedal to as high as 70 mph (113 kph) on dual carriageways and motorways. The speed limit reduces drastically in residential areas to 20 mph (32 mph).
  • As you drive through rural areas in Lofoten & Vesterålen, remember that narrow roads can be meandering. You are thus likely to encounter single-track roads or bridges only wide enough to permit passage for one vehicle. As such, be cautious when navigating narrow streets, and look for any signs indicating winding roads before overtaking. Consider giving way to cars closest to the bridge and vehicles going uphill.
  • The Norwegian traffic laws require everyone in the car to wear their seat belts, regardless of whether they occupy the front or back seats. Still, every child in the vehicle must sit in a restraint device like a booster seat, which you can get from the rental company at a small fee. In addition, kids under four must be fitted in a rear-facing child seat, which should match their size and weight.
  • The choice of your Lofoten & Vesterålen car rentals will likely depend on your needs, particularly the regions you want to explore and your budget. For instance, you will find a compact car ideal if you only drive within the town center and neighboring streets. However, a 4X4 SUV or a pickup truck is an excellent choice if you are here to venture outdoors.

First is the convenience and flexibility a car offers when touring iconic attractions on your to-do list.

Moreover, car hire agencies have a wide range of cars in their fleets, and you are sure of getting a vehicle that serves your needs. Lastly, with a rental car, you enjoy comfort and privacy not found in public transportation.
