KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kristiansand

  • When you choose car hire in Kristiansand, you can enjoy exploring Norway’s beautiful coastal region on your own schedule. While Kristiansand does have a robust public transport system linking the city to nearby attractions, trains and buses are often very busy with tourists during the summer months. Besides this, public transport to famous sites, like the Gjengesti bru historical bridge or the Merkestrengen lakes, generally takes at least 1h longer than travelling by car. Hiring a car in Kristiansand will also give you the option to take leisurely drives along the E39 coastal road and enjoy stopping wherever you feel like it, to soak in the amazing views and visit hidden beaches.
  • If you are flying into Kristiansand via Kristiansand Kjevik Airport (KRS), you can collect your hire car from one of the on-site airport branches. Kristiansand city centre is located just a 15min drive from the airport, compared with around a 30min journey on public transport. When you land at the terminals, you will find car hire desks located inside the main Arrivals Hall and directly outside the airport, at the north end of Car Park 1.
  • Choosing car hire in Kristiansand will give you the chance to explore some of Norway’s most stunning coastline by road and enjoy the city in your own time. When you’re setting out on your Norwegian road trips, it's important to look at the route you will be taking and plan ahead to make sure you have everything you need. If you are driving outside the city into rural Norway, it is a good idea to take some water and snacks in the car with you, as the roads are quite winding, and journeys may take slightly longer than anticipated, especially if you stop at beauty spots along the way. The winding roads also mean that you should take care driving around bends and keep your speed low in case you encounter cyclists or other vehicles.
  • Norwegian roads are generally quite clear, and the motorways do not experience heavy traffic congestion. However, you may experience traffic delays on main roads leading in and out of Kristiansand itself, especially during rush hour, which generally lasts from 06:00 to 08:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00. If you want to miss the traffic during these times, it is best to avoid central motorway routes, like the E18 and the E39.
  • Book your rental car in Kristiansand at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Kristiansand are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

This will give you the ability to drive in snowy conditions and give you plenty of storage space for carrying blankets and warm clothes with you on days out. A large vehicle, like an SUV, is also a good choice for visiting Kristiansand in the summer, as the off-road capability will let you explore remote areas off the beaten track. The height from the road will also give you a spectacular view of the scenery.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kristiansand?

    Speed limit signs in Norway are displayed in km/h. It’s important to remember this, especially if you are used to driving on UK roads with mph signage. Speed limits may also change and vary throughout different parts of the country. As a general rule, the speed limit in Norwegian towns and built-up areas is 50 km/h (30 mph). This increases to 80 km/h (50 mph) on rural roads and 100 km/h (65 mph) on motorways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kristiansand?

    When you choose car hire in Kristiansand, you will need to inform yourself about where you can safely park your vehicle. Fortunately for motorists, Kristiansand has numerous secure car parks located in and around the city centre. If you want to use an official car park in Kristiansand, you can usually expect to pay around 15 NOK (2-3 GBP) for a 2h stay and around 220 NOK (16 GBP) for a full day. You can also find some central car parks that offer free parking at weekends.
