Car Rental

While Denmark is not always the quickest country to navigate, a lot of travel time can be shaved off if you are seeing the country by car. If you want a budget car rental Denmark is probably not the place for you, as most companies will be charging somewhere around $75 a day for their services, but it may be worth it to you – freedom to go where you want, and to avoid the Danish rail system that is both convenient and extensive, but notoriously slow. Thus, a Denmark car rental will allow you can take off along the motorways at your leisure, avoiding Copenhagen’s Central Station, cruising between the capital and the rest of the country with ease.

The freeways and roads have the benefit of good upkeep and are usually quite clearly marked. Navigating the country on a budget car rental, Denmark flies by your window in a colorful mélange of green and yellow, blue and pink. Because a large portion of the Danish population get around by bicycle, traffic rarely reaches unpleasant levels, though some city streets are closed off to car travel. Everywhere else, you have to keep an eye out for the swarms of bicyclists that can be found just about anywhere.  Whether you require a rental car is, of course, dependent on your own itinerary.  Most casual visitors to Denmark stick around the largely populated areas - but if you want to really spread out and see the natural splendors that Denmark travel offers, you"ll want to head to the fjord-intensive northern coasts.  In the summer, the blond beaches of Skagen are immensely popular, while the winter involves all kinds of hiking and outdoor fun.  If you are interested in either of these options, a Denmark car rental is not only advised, it"s almost a prerequisite.

The price of gas, as always, is another serious consideration when deciding whether to rent a car. Heavily taxed throughout the country (and most of the rest of the continent), it is far more expensive to fill your tank in Denmark than America. To really cut costs, make sure your Denmark car rental gets good gas mileage – you’ll need it. Along with many others, Avis, Hertz, Dollar, Alamo and Budget car rental Denmark all have offices across the country, in main cities such as Odense or Roskilde, and each feature a convenient location inside the Copenhagen airport. The best way to get a better rate on a Denmark car rental, though, is to plan ahead. Booking a car service in a package deal through an agent or internet site almost invariably ensures you of getting a discount rate, assuming you pass the age requirement (20) and have a valid driver’s license in your country of origin.

As with most car rentals, Denmark companies require you to be liable for all damages that happen to your car during the rental period. Collision insurance is usually available, but the rates fluctuate wildly between companies, so careful consideration must be paid if you choose this optional coverage.
