Where is the best place to rent a car in Stockholm?

There are many car rental companies both in the city and at the two airports in Stockholm. Decide which pick-up location best matches your plans. If you arrive by plane at Arlanda Airport (ARN) and want to start your holiday with a rental car from the very first moment, rent a car directly at the airport. Thanks to the large selection of different providers, you can obtain vehicles in any category at the airport. Check on Driveboo and get a detailed overview of the providers and available vehicles!

Advantages of renting a car at the airport
  • cheap offers for rental cars
  • longer opening hours
  • higher availability of vehicles

Car rental Stockholm: Is there a toll in Sweden?

The good news is: generally there is no motorway toll in Sweden. The bad news is: for both Stockholm and Gothenburg there is a city toll, which is due between 6:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. Exceptions are public holidays, the day before a public holiday and the whole month of July. When entering the corresponding zones via control stations (called "Betalstation"), the license plate is recorded by cameras and the price, which varies depending on the time of day, is displayed on digital boards. The maximum amount for one day is 105 SEK.

Do I need a vignette for the Stockholm rental car?

No, you do not need to buy a vignette for your rental car. Sweden is one of the so-called Eurovignette countries, but this only applies to trucks. There is no motorway toll for normal cars.

Where can I park my rental car free of charge in Stockholm?

There is a charge for parking in Stockholm almost everywhere. The cheapest option is to park outside of the city centre and then use public transport.

  • Green zones: parking costs SEK 41 per hour
  • Red zones: comprises most of the city centre and costs SEK 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and SEK 15 outside these hours.
  • Blue zones: between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. parking costs SEK 15 and is free on weekends

Parking offenders will be fined up to 1000 SEK in Stockholm!

Do I have to pay a higher deposit in Stockholm?

A deposit must be paid to all car rental providers. The amount of the deposit varies from car rental to car rental. However, it does not primarily depend on the currency but on the type of vehicle. If you are going to rent a convertible you have to allow for a higher deposit than for a small car. If the rental car is returned without damage, the previously debited amount will be credited to your credit card.

How to include an additional driver for the rental car

If you do not want to spend the whole time in Stockholm and Sweden driving alone, you can include an additional driver for the rental car at the car rental company. As a rule, a small additional fee is charged for this, a price that is often charged per rented day. However, there are also offers that include an additional driver free of charge. Here it is worth making an online comparison in advance.

Refueling in Stockholm: All about fuel!

Sooner or later you will need to find a petrol station. Basically there are many petrol stations in Sweden. However, the number decreases drastically in the north. If you`re planning to go on excursions in this part of the country with the rented car, always keep an eye on the fuel gauge. You can carry up to 30 litres in a spare canister.

What is the right time for my trip to Stockholm?

As one of the most beautiful cities in Scandinavia, Stockholm has a lot to offer all year round. The metropolis was built on 14 islands, one prettier than the other. The nickname "Venice of the North" is due to the fact that Stockholm is surrounded by water. The contrast between old and new becomes especially clear between the old city Gamla Stan and the neighbouring islands.

Discover Stockholm and its surroundings by rental car
