KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Aarhus

  • Getting around Aarhus using public means is quite possible, given that the city is served by Letbanen light rail trains and city buses. Although these transportation means are cheap, you may find moving from one destination to another using one tiring. For instance, if the two destinations aren’t linked directly, you will have to switch trains/buses and wait for fellow passengers to alight and board at the stops you’ll encounter. In comparison, with a rental car from one of the reliable car rentals in Aarhus, you can travel from one destination to another without encountering stops or switching vehicles. You can also quickly get to attractions in towns 33 miles away, like Grena, Juelsminde, Stouby, and Vibor, in an hour.
  • At Aarhus Airport (AAR), you can easily rent a car. This air transit hub features locations for reliable Aarhus car rentals like Hertz, Sixt, Europcar, Budget, Enterprise, National, Alamo, and Avis. You won’t need any ground transportation to get to the counters for the agencies, given that the counters are less than 50 meters to the right of the Arrival Hall. The pickup lot for the vehicles is a short walk from the counters.
  • To achieve a smooth experience when driving in Aarhus, be careful and aware of how cyclists move around. Cyclists are everywhere. You should also note that Aarhus has a low emission zone. If you intend to drive in this zone, ensure you ask for a sticker from your agency showing your vehicle meets the required standards. Also, note that most inner streets are pedestrian streets.
  • Like most other cities with significant populations, Aarhus experiences heavy traffic during rush hours. In this city, the morning rush hour usually lasts from 7:00 am to 9:30 am, while the afternoon wave usually runs from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The roads in Midtbyen, Aarhus’ city center, and the E45 Motorway, which connects Aarhus and Skanderborg, are the most affected. Thus, during rush hour periods, avoid them at all costs.

Staff at Eurocar were friendly and competent. Their English was excellent, which was helpful because I speak no Danish. Everything went as expected. Plus, they upgraded the car from manual to automatic transmission at no additional cost.

It is SO hard to recharge the car in Aarhus for the return as there is a severe lack of ChaDemo charging stations in the city. I tried for 3-4 hours to find a fast charger in the city but there were none available and I had to return the car with less than 50% charge. I understand that when hiring a petrol car the fuel can be filled up easily before returning but when there are only slow chargers available for EVs in the city. This makes it hard to return the car charges and then there are extra fees for the car being undercharged.

I rented a Nissan Leaf, assuming that I could easily recharge the car. No one in the Avis dealership advised me otherwise. However, when it came time to recharge, I was unable to download the appropriate apps through the App store because I was not in North America. I had to call a trouble number for Clever (a charging company) who overroad the system so I could at least drive the car to my hotel. I then had to drive back to an Avis rental outlet at the Billund Airport and they let me exchange the car for the ONLY one they had. I asked what they would have done if they had no cars at all and they said, "We will call you a taxi." Thankfully an exchange was possible. People renting electric cars in Europe who come from North America ought to know that charging might not be possible if you expect to download an app for various charging companies.
