KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tromsø

  • To rent a car from one of the companies offering cheap car rentals in Tromsø, you must be at least 19 years old. The documents you need include a full driver’s license from your home country and a credit card. For your driver’s license to be considered valid, you must have had it for at least a full year. For your credit card to be accepted, it must be in your name. You do not need an international driving permit to drive your Tromsø car rental, provided your license has a picture and is written in the Roman alphabet. Note that if you’re under 25 years of age, you can only rent certain types of cars, and you may pay more than older drivers for your rental, since companies with cheap car rentals in Tromsø charge young drivers a caution fee.
  • In case you want to travel with your child in the Tromsø rental you hire, ensure that they sit in an approved child seat. This is because Norway, where Tromsø’s is located, has strict child seat laws. In this country, all children under 4 feet 11 inches tall (150 cm) and 80 lbs (36 kg) in weight must use approved child seats. All children under 10 years must ride in the back of the vehicle. If a child is above 10 years but below the noted height and weight, they must still sit in the back. However, if they’re between 10 and 13 years old and above the noted height and weight, they can use the front seat, provided they’re seated in a seat with a harness.
  • When driving your Tromsø car rental, you must have your headlights on at all times, even during daylight hours. Generally, Norway roads face low-visibility challenges. While driving, keep an eye out for other drivers. If you happen to forget to turn your headlights on, they likely will flash their lights to remind you to turn them on.
  • Many tourists visit Tromso to see the spectacular Northern Lights. Other activities you can enjoy here include whale watching, reindeer sledding, and touring the Polar Museum. Many attractions are on the outskirts of Tromso and not in the heart of the city, so you’ll need a car to get there. Additionally, Norway is known for its scenic highways and roads, so you’ll enjoy your trip more if you rent a car.
  • Tromso Airport serves the Northern region of Norway. It is also the largest airport in Norway and offers numerous domestic and international flights. When flying into this airport, you’ll have access to duty-free shops, restaurants, and bars. For added convenience, there are also several rental car agencies located right inside the terminal building.
  • With their tolls, most of the roads around Tromso are in excellent condition. Note that when driving anywhere in Norway, you must keep your low beamed lights on at all times for safety. Tromso is also a pedestrian friendly town, so be prepared to stop or slow down to allow pedestrians to cross at corners giving them the right of way.
  • There is really no rush hour traffic to be concerned about in Tromso. Inclement weather during the long winter season, however, can cause traffic backups and slow downs, so give yourself ample time for travel and drive cautiously. You’ll also want to make sure that you have an ice scraper, brush and a blanket in your rental car in case of emergency.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Tromsø for $87 or less
  • Book your rental car in Tromsø at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Tromsø are around 9% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Economy rental cars in Tromsø are around -6% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Tromsø

The staff at Tromso Airport was great. However, while travelling to Tromso by bus, we had an accident and I contacted Alamo's online chat for cancellation, because we won't be able to reach Tromso on time and we won't be able to use the car as much as we would like to. The person at the chat told me that the booking is cancelled, but we didn't receive any notification regarding cancellation. And we were able to check the car's readiness next day and the car was waiting for pickup as stated on the instructions, this is why we picked up the car 1 day later. Even so, we paid complete booking cost, and 1 day is paid for nothing. If possible, we would like to receive a refund for 1 day, because we didn't use the car. If required, we can send the pictures and videos of the accident we have been through to prove.

Pickup took almost 90 minutes because a person in front of us was having issues and held up the line for at least 70 minutes (I'm not sure when they actually arrived) and the agent wouldn't assist other people. Car return area was not clearly marked like other rental services, and was not communicated to us. Office was closed on the day we returned the car.

Pros:

The car. It was nice and clean and easy to drive.

Cons:

The fact that we were limited to only 300km which really restricted where we could go and what we could see. Also what really annoyed me was that I arrived late due to flights delayed so I asked weather I could return the car later and was told no because it was booked out at 13:00 that day which is fair enough. But to my disbelief I walked past where I had dropped the car off at 14:00 and the car was still there. I really don't appreciate being lied to by the customer facing staff and would never use them again because of this.

Pros:

help @ rental counter - provided useful information.

Cons:

No one available at drop off. For a city the size of Tromso and an airport with heavy traffic, not having an office open on Sunday is unusual. It was unclear why there was a large advertisement for a company or something on the doors of the car - should have gotten a discount for double use of the car!

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Disclaimer: we did not get the car so we are only reviewing the agency behavior and policy. We initially scheduled the car pickup at 3PM since our next flight was delayed we called the agency to let them know we wouldn’t be able to pick it up on the same day but would come the next day. We did not ask for any price discount or anything, just to inform them. The person we spoke to enquired about the time we would come in on the next day, I asked whether any time was better, he simply replied no, was just to have an idea. We left it there. On the next day, we show up at half past noon, the person at the counter (Seemed to be the agency manager) tells us that he’d given the car to someone else. We then go on to explain the misunderstanding, there was no misunderstanding at all, he was aware of the full situation, just that the price for that rental had doubled up on time. Lame attitude all along, did not try to give us a call, nor produce any apologies or offer a discount on the last available car, which turns out was the same category as the one we booked. Overall really bad experience, I do not recommend because of this incompetent manager.

Hello, dear customer support, I am writting to you hoping to resolve an issue with my recent booking with Hertz in Tromso Norway. When I was on the way to Tromso, my personal belongings were stolen along with my drivers license and credit card, which I used to book a car (I’ve already reported the issue to the local police and I am waiting for an official statement). When I arrived to pick up car and explain the situation, your norweigen collegues managed to change a driver and attempted to chrage another credit card but due to a technical issue with their system (this is what they claimed happened), we were unable to pick up our car. Subsequently the reservation were cancel as a no show and we were told to report the issue directly with your customer support. I would like to kindly ask you for a refund as you are a benefactor of the payment (I am able to provide account statement, that shows Hertz.com as a recipient of the payment). Also I have written statement from your norweigen collegues aligning the issue, that I am able to provide as a screen shot or pdf as they recommended to acompany my claim with this statement to help resolve the issue. If you could, please, let me know, what the next steps are, that would be very helpfull. Thank you for your time and I appreciate your help. Kind regards Irina Kondratova

Jan 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The only good point was that as I spotted a rock between the tire and the wheel on the car they wanted to give us, they have been obliged to change us for another car which was really well equipped (4x4 and spikes tires) but we felt it hurt them and after how they treated us, it was quite good.

Cons:

Upon arrival, they told us that we had no choice than taking an insurance for the rent. We booked without insurance because we have it through our credit card but they didn't wanted to consider this. They just said "it's doesn't work like that in Norway". Our only other alternative proposed was to allow them to book the full price of the car on my card which is obviously not an option. The attitude of this guy was just unacceptable with this little smile just saying that he was cheating us but as they are alone in town, they know that we have no choice. After being obliged to pay for this insurance which was nearly half of the price of our rent, they bring the car and here it continues: 3 damages not mentionned on the contract and regular winter tires... for information, the road where full of pure Ice and everyone was driving with tires with spikes. Hopefully, I spotted a dangerous rock between the tire and the wheel and they were obliged to change us the car... however, this isn't acceptable neither as they would have give me the car like this which was really dangerous if I didn't checked in details myself. I am of course gone a claim also at Budget directly.

Cons:

I went to pick up the car, which Budget/Kayak informed me would be $110 for my visit. I budgeted that much and maybe a little more for fuel and such. When I arrived I was told the third party insurance I had purchased through Budget with this rental was basically useless because the country I was renting in required full insurance coverage at the rental office. I couldn't afford this now over double the cost, and cancelled my rental. I was pissed. My whole trip was screwed up because of the lack of information Budget/Kayak gave me about the country I was renting in and I won't rent from you again.
