KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Ålesund

  • Car rentals in Ålesund, Norway will allow you to tour Ålesund and its attractions at your own pace, without being limited by fixed schedules or limited routes. A rental car will give you the freedom to customize your itinerary and make spontaneous stops along the way as you explore the region's attractions, including Atlantic Sea-Park, Sunnmøre Museum, and Alnes Fyr. Additionally, renting a car in Ålesund allows you to access remote areas that may not be easily accessible by buses or trains. A rental car also provides you with a personalized and comfortable trip. With a rental car, you will also have spacious storage for your bulky luggage.
  • Ålesund Airport (AES) is the main international airport serving the town of Ålesund and its metropolitan areas. If you are flying into the city, you will find several Ålesund car rentals at AES. The airport features desks for a variety of car rentals in the arrivals area. The car rental providers available at AES include Budget, Hertz, Europcar, SIXT, Avis, Keddy by Europcar, and Sunnycars.

2.0 Poor

Sep 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

There was one individual that was very helpful and did her best to turn a bad situation into a good one. Based on my experience, without her smoothing things over, I would never rent from hertz again.

Cons:

No one was at the location when I arrived, they didn't have my reservation, and I had to replan my entire trip having to wait for someone to show up. I ended up missing one of the few reasons I went to Norway.

7.6 Good

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

We were able to pick up in one city and drop off in another city in Norway.

Cons:

We were charged extra (over $50) for the late arrival even though our flight was delayed, so it wasn't our fault also we had called them earlier to let them know.
