KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Ålesund

  • Booking a car hire in Alesund gives you an advantage over using the public transport in the local area, not only because it gives you the freedom to go exactly where you want to, but also the fact that you can go whenever you want and don’t have to follow the public transport timetables. With an area of about 99 km squared to explore, you can take your Alesund car hire and explore the archipelago, visiting sites such as Mount Aksla and Atlantic Sea Park.
  • You can find a few hire car companies at Alesund Vigra Airport (AES), including Hertz, Eurostar and Sixt. The opening hours of the different companies vary, so we recommend that you investigate this before booking, to make sure that you can collect your vehicle upon arrival. They are mostly open throughout the day Monday to Friday, but times may change on the weekend. You can find their branches within the main terminal building.
  • When driving in the town of Alesund, you will need to drive on the right-hand side of the road and be aware that you cannot turn right at a red light. In general, the drivers of Norway are patient and calm, and we encourage you to adopt this manner during your visit, to make the most of your driving experience. It is typical to jaywalk in Alesund, and the pedestrians' eyesight may be impaired by wearing hats and hoods due to the weather, so take care when using your car hire in Alesund.
  • The weather can make driving your car hire in Alesund more difficult, as it is situated on the western shore of Norway and is prone to receiving strong winds, rain and snow. Visibility can be reduced and the roads can be slippery, so we recommend that you take care and check that your care hire in Alesund has all of the required safety features, such as snow tyres and tyre studs. Rush hour is when the city has its most traffic, and it is generally from 08:00 to 09:00 and then 17:00 to 18:00.
  • Book your rental car in Ålesund at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Alesund?

    If you plan on simply staying in the local Alesund area, then you may be happy to hire an economy or compact car; these will offer you easy navigation of the town and parking in the city. If you would like to explore the archipelago and further from the city, then you may want to consider hiring an SUV or a 4x4 vehicle, as the roads tend to be a little wilder. An SUV is a good option if you travel in winter, as it is better suited for adapting to snow and bad weather.

Certain dual carriageways and motorways have a maximum speed limit of 110 kph.

  • What are the best places to park in Alesund?

    Alesund Parking is a company that offers car parks across the town, with the vast majority of them being outdoor car parks. You can also find plenty of on-street parking spaces, but you must check to see if you are required to pay at one of the nearby meters, so as to avoid receiving a fine. Most parking spaces allow you to park between 09:00 and 16:00 but with a maximum stay of 2 hours before you are required to move the vehicle. The price can vary from kr 15 ($A 2) to kr 150 (A$ 20) per hour, and some are free on Saturdays.

Sep 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

There was one individual that was very helpful and did her best to turn a bad situation into a good one. Based on my experience, without her smoothing things over, I would never rent from hertz again.

Cons:

No one was at the location when I arrived, they didn't have my reservation, and I had to replan my entire trip having to wait for someone to show up. I ended up missing one of the few reasons I went to Norway.

7.6 Good

KAYAK

Pros:

We were able to pick up in one city and drop off in another city in Norway.

Cons:

We were charged extra (over $50) for the late arrival even though our flight was delayed, so it wasn't our fault also we had called them earlier to let them know.
