5.6 OkaySep 24 2019
Pros: Car was newCons: They charged me 477 DKK without any inform after 3 months!
8.0 ExcellentAug 21 2018
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful, and very friendly. It seems like they did everything they could to help us get into an available car that they had.Cons: I had rented a large seven person van through the kayak website, unfortunately they did not have a large seven passenger van. We had to cram every piece of luggage that we had into a five person station wagon. It was a bit tight. I don’t know if I blame kayak, or the Hertz rental place.
10.0 ExcellentAug 13 2018
Easy to Book, Great Car, Great ExperiencePros: Easy and quick checkout
9.2 ExcellentJul 30 2018

10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2018
Friendly and informative service at pick up.Pros: We received an upgrade. The car was big, comfortable, and yet it was economic to drive.Cons: Cannot come up with a single negative thing. Sorry:-)
8.0 ExcellentJul 20 2018
No key dropoffPros: The price and the car were great.Cons: Hertz was the only rental company at the rental car center without a key drop, so after my family hoofed our luggage to the bus stop, I still had to run back to the car rental center office and drop off the key. Even there, they didn’t have a key drop, so I wasn’t sure if I had to wait in line or if I could just hand them the key over the counter, while other customers were checking in. When I got back to the bus, the shuttle was gone. A small, unnecessary hassle.
5.6 OkayJun 27 2018
no refund of deposit after 9 daysCons: Refund not given after 9 days
9.6 ExcellentJun 1 2018
Got a bigger carPros: I have booked the Mini category abut Hertz run out of them so I have received a very nice Volvo v60 which was phenomenal. This was obviously a lucky scenario, however the friendliness of the staff and the fast service was excellent - even without the fancy car.Cons: That I have to return it.

Confusion at pickupPros: Car that we got at the end was great. Return was smooth and quick.Cons: Confusion, misinformation first day and no car for winter conditions in Sweden, no money back. I had to call Sixt headquarter to sort it out. Car was provided next day. Maybe I should inform to get car with winter tires, although all other rentals I asked had them as standard. My problem is the communication at the branch. Next time I will go with a different car rental.
2.0 MediocreOct 11 2018
Cons: If y heave only debit card whit money for guarantie mie give me the car. Last years Avis give me stiu seame card.
5.6 OkayAug 27 2018
Cons: We’ve rented cars for over 40 years. When dropping off this car the agent insisted on charging us for a scratch that we could barely detect. It was under the rear door, not even visible when the door was closed. It looked like dirt. We’ve never been charged for damage like this before. It felt like an assault. I still can’t believe the agent insisted we be charged
6.4 GoodAug 14 2018
Good customer service but outrageously strict return policyPros: The car I received was as expected. The young man ts the check-out counter was exceptionally helpful when I had problems with my American credit card. (Unfortunately, I didn't catch his name, but he appeared to be of immigrant background, and I hope the company knows what a great employee they have!) .Cons: When I returned the car, the employee in charge of returns was exceptionally diligent in going over the car which had a number of minor scratches when I received it. I ought to have checked these more carefully before departing with the car, but after 20+ years of renting cars during visits to Denmark, I have never had any issues, so I didn't do so. When I returned the car, I was informed that the car had two additional minor scratches that I would be held responsible for. I honestly do not believe that these scratches happened while I was using the car, but of course I have no proof. Given the fact that a number of other scratches remained on the car, the company obviously do not fix these, so it seems extravagant that my insurance company will be charged for repairing these. Besides, the windshield wipers were not working correctly (which I only discovered in a rain storm), but when I mentioned this to the employee upon return, I was given not even an apology. Next time around, I will llok for another car rental company.
8.0 ExcellentJul 30 2017

2.0 MediocreMay 2 2021
Cons: We signed up for a deal through KAYAK that specified a certain price and that there is unlimited milage included. After the booking confirmation we got a call from Avis saying the deal is not possible and brought up different terms and conditions that we agreed on.
10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2019
Pros: The staff at rental counter and the return lot were friendly and very helpful. The rate was unbelievably low.
5.6 OkayAug 1 2019
Pros: That another employee stepped in after a long waitCons: That the number system would have worked. It was my turn but a customer who had taken a number after me stepped in front because he said he was a long time customer. After a long overseas trip and a long wait in line this is not what I expected from Avis.
8.8 ExcellentAug 5 2018
Pros: Good car Citroën C4 Picasso, roomy and a good drive.Cons: Picking up the car took much too long.
8.0 ExcellentJul 24 2018

4.0 OkayOct 14 2017
Expensive and not serious staffPros: NoneCons: Waited for almost 3hours at the car rental. At some point they almost rented me a basic car for 300 euros
6.8 GoodSep 28 2017
One would expect more in CopenhagenCons: The drop off of car rentals is less than third world. Out in elements. Rain or shine.and lots of rain in Denmark. They just changed a few months ago from not so good system to incredibly stupid and consumer unfriendly. Having lived in Denmark and being married t a Dane, I am stunned by the stupidity of the current drop off, both for those returning cars and those poor souls who work there all day. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.
8.8 ExcellentSep 24 2017
Cons: The new carrental facility at cPH airport has been moved further away from the terminals and can only be reached by the circulating airport bus which seems to be vey irregular. I almost missed my rental a Sunday evening because the bus was not coming.
8.0 ExcellentAug 16 2017
Pros: Fast serviceCons: NA
9.6 ExcellentJul 16 2017
Excellent car for traveling around EuropePros: I liked the gas mileage; the comfort from the driver's seat and the passenger seatCons: The overall size was somewhat of an issue. The car was advertised as a mini-van, yet was really not much bigger than a Prius or a mid-size hatchback. The advertisement also said that it would hold 7 passengers and 3-4 bags, but that was nearly impossible. Luckily we only had five passengers, otherwise our luggage would not have fit the car.

Kayak service very very poorPros: Nothing.Cons: I booked a car using KAYAK website, providing all required information, including where I live. When I went to pick up the car, I discovered that different conditions are applied if you reside in the same country where you are renting the car. E.g.: 100 km/day instead of unlimited, higher price than agreed, etc. Ok, It was written in the terms and condition (a very long document....). But kayak site, AFTER collecting my data (including where I live), showed me a specific price and specific condition, different from the real ones. Kayak took my money but didn't provide me the service !!!!
9.6 ExcellentApr 3 2017

Top tips for renting a car in Copenhagen

  • Copenhagen has a plethora of sights to offer, from the port, the aquarium, and the Museum of Zoology to the iconic Little Mermaid positioned on a rock. Having your own rental car during your stay in Copenhagen will not only provide ultimate flexibility and your own timeframe to explore the city, but also allow you to venture out into the scenic Danish landscape and find out why it is here where the happiest people on Earth live.
  • Start your journey to Copenhagen hassle-free and pick up a rental car conveniently upon landing at Copenhagen Airport. There is a car rental center located on-site and signs will indicate the way from the respective terminal. Companies like Avis, Europcar, or Sixt provide their vehicles for a smooth 20-minute ride into the city center. Upon driving out of the airport, look for the E20, which will bring you to the heart of Copenhagen.
  • Denmark and Copenhagen are very flat, so there is no uphill challenge when it comes to driving through the city. Public transport is also very well-structured within the city boundaries, so, when exploring Copenhagen, the rental car can also be left at the hotel or at a P+R to avoid driving through the city. When venturing out of the city into the countryside, the roads are broad and in good conditions, providing for a smooth driving experience.
  • Copenhagen can get lots of snow during the winter months, and it only has about 7 hours of daylight. Having on the headlights is a must, so that other drivers can see you, and adapting the speed to road and weather conditions is pivotal as snow and ice can cover the streets. Watch out especially in the morning hours, as plows may not have reached all corners of the city yet.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Copenhagen for $27 or less
  • Book your rental car in Copenhagen at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Copenhagen are around 19% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Economy rental cars in Copenhagen are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Copenhagen

  • On average a rental car in Copenhagen costs $42 per day.

  • In the past 72 hours, the cheapest rental cars were found at Enterprise ($22/day), Sixt ($23/day) and Hertz ($23/day). In the last 72 hours the cheapest rental car price was found at Hertz Ved Vesterport 3 1620 (1 miles from city center).

  • Yes, automatic cars are available in most car renting companies in Copenhagen. As cars with manual transmission are more common in many countries, you might have to pay an additional charge for renting an automatic car.

  • The average gas price in Copenhagen is $7.33 per gallon over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between $88 and $117, depending on the car size.

  • Compact (Ford Focus or similar) is the most frequently booked rental car type in Copenhagen.

  • On average a rental car in Copenhagen costs $294 per week ($42 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Copenhagen costs $1,262 per month ($42 per day).

  • For travelers who mainly want to cruise through the city, an economic compact car is the best choice. Business travelers may also want to opt for a compact sports car to add some style to their driving experience. When leaving the city and exploring the Danish countryside, an SUV is the car of choice, as it provides the much-needed road traction. Bear in mind that manual gear shift cars are most common in Denmark and opting for an automatic car may cost extra.

  • All speed limits are given in kilometers per hour, as is usual in Europe. Inside the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed, unless indicated otherwise or when weather conditions don’t allow drivers to go as fast. 80 km/h (50 mph) can be driven on rural country roads and freeways allow up to 130 km/h (81 mph).

  • Gas is generally more expensive in Europe, and Denmark is no exception. A refill will cost around 10.79 Danish Kroner per liter, which is about $6.56 per gallon and $1.64 per liter. As it is with many European gas stations, some of them close at 10pm, especially within the city area. 24/7 stations can usually be found around airports and the freeways.

  • Copenhagen is divided into four parking zones: red, green, blue, and yellow. The closer you get to the city center, the more expensive parking becomes. On-street parking is generally pretty expensive in Copenhagen, so opting for accommodation with an included parking spot or choosing a parking garage are good alternatives. Public parking lots and garages include Jeudan Parking Dronningens Tværgade or Q-Park Adelgade.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
