Car rental

The best way to learn and feel the city is to walk on foot. But this rule cannot be always applied. In bad, rainy, windy or winter weather it may turn out to be hard. And then a car can help you. It will also be a good idea, if you want to organize individual trips to far places in Denmark: Legoland, Skagen, the old town of Ribe, the island of Møn, Park of Labyrinths, Royal castles etc. will become much closer and more available provided you have a car.

Car rentals may differ from 260 DKK per day to 1000 DKK or even more. Here everything depends on your preferences. If you want to get a car with no frills, go to the company called Byensbilleje. Their fleet includes some 100 extensively used cars, but at the same time it is cheap and easy. Here you will get a car from 260 DKK, 100 km/day (depreciation) are included into the price, if you are going to drive a lot, you can additionally buy required mileage. Their cars are used but reliable.

If you want newer cars, but not very expensive, contact company Dyt - Dyt, Here 3-4-year-old cars cost about 400 DKK per day, including 100 km mileage per day. When you take the car you will need to leave the deposit of 2000 DKK, which you will get back upon returning the automobile.

Having tried a dozen of different car rent companies, we have come to the conclusion that the most suitable option, from our point of view, is Avis or Hertz. It will be somewhat more expensive, but you will get more service as well. The longer the rental period is – the lower the price. Cars here are nearly all new, and that is a rarity to see a car with over 50 000 km mileage on the speedometer. Be careful with automatic gear car rentals, since extra mileage will be very expensive, some 3.5 DKK per extra kilometre.

You should also bear in mind that if you rent a car in Denmark, but you are going to Sweden, e.g. to Malmo, you will need special insurance "International forsikring". People under 25 are normally required to pay an extra insurance at 1 000 DKK. In some companies, e.g. One2move you will not be able to rent a car, if you are under 25 and your driving licence experience is less than 3 years.

As a rule a car can be taken at 08:00 a.m., and returned not later than 9:00 a.m. Children under 3 years old must sit in a special seat, children shorter than 135 cm must seat on a special pad, a pillow type, otherwise the police may take your driving licence.
