KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kristiansund

  • Kristiansund is known for its scenic beauty, and many of the best sights and attractions are located outside the city centre. Having a cheap car hire in Kristiansund will give you easy access to these locations and will save you time. For example, if you plan to visit the nearby island of Grip, which is only accessible by ferry, having a Kristiansund car hire will allow you to drive directly to the ferry terminal and avoid waiting for public transport. Some other places you can visit are the Sunndalsfjella National Park and the Norwegian Klippfisk Museum.
  • If you want to hire a Kristiansund car hire at Molde Aro Airport (MOL), you will find the car hire offices located in the airport terminal, making it easy to pick up and drop off the car. Molde Aro Airport is located approximately 44 miles (71 km) from Kristiansund. At Kristiansund Kvernberget Airport (KSU), the car hire offices are also located in the airport terminal building, making it convenient for travellers to pick up and return their hire cars. KSU is located approximately 7 miles (11 km) from the centre of Kristiansund. At Volda Hovden Airport (HOV), the car hire offices are located nearby the airport, within walking distance from the terminal. Volda Hovden Airport is located approximately 72 miles (116 km) from Kristiansund.
  • Driving in Kristiansund, Norway, is relatively easy and safe. The roads in Kristiansund are generally well-maintained, and there are several signs and indicators to guide you. It is important to note that many of the signs will be in Norwegian, so it is important to learn some basic phrases. One of the unique rules you need to know about when driving a cheap car hire in Kristiansund is the concept of "kollektivfelt", which translates to "carpool lanes". These lanes are reserved for vehicles with two or more passengers, and they can be found on many major highways. Driving on these lanes when you are not supposed to can result in fines.
  • Driving cheap car hire in Kristiansund can be challenging during rush hour, which typically occurs in the morning from 07:00-09:00 and in the evening from 15:30-17:30. During rush hour, traffic on the E39 Highway and city streets, such as Fylkesvei 70 and Storgata, can become congested, leading to longer travel times. In winter, driving in Kristiansund and the surrounding areas can be challenging due to snow and icy road conditions. The snowfall can be heavy at times, particularly in the mountainous areas, which can cause some roads to close.

Pros:

the car was good.

Cons:

The info I got from the International Hertz operator was wrong. I couldn't pick up my car the night I landed at Molde airport. I even paid extra fee to have the workers stay open, but my car was at another airport. The operator said I could take a shuttle between Molde and Kristiansund airports to get my car, but no. I had to have a friend pick me up that night, then had to take a bus for a couple hours the next day. I didn't get it till 3:30pm. Then I had to pay another fee to drop it off at another airport, the one I landed and took off from, Molde.
