Malmö Airport (MMX), Sweden's fourth busiest airport, is located in the Svedala Municipality, and serves Malmö, 17 miles to the west; Lund, 16 miles northwest; as well as Copenhagen in Denmark, 34 miles across the Öresund Bridge. As such, car hire at Malmö Airport makes perfect sense for those wanting to explore Sweden or even Denmark with a road trip. The airport is connected to the E65 motorway which will take you to Malmö or Copenhagen, as well as road 108 which leads to Lund or Trelleborg.
Driving is a great way to experience Sweden and its natural wonders, with forests, lakes and miles of coastline. With a hire car, you will have the freedom to explore wherever you want, on your own timetable. On top of that, Sweden has excellent quality roads, with slow and smooth curves on motorways, as well as abundant signage of warnings and speed limits. Similarly to other wintery nations, your car’s headlights have to be on at all times, no matter how much the sun is shining; snow tyres are mandatory between the 1st of December and the 31st of March.
Car hire at Malmö Airport is very easy and straightforward. The offices of the car hire agencies are conveniently located on-site next to the multi-storey car park. Here you can find a wide range of international and local providers, as well as helpful and friendly English-speaking staff who will be there to help you organise the collection of your car and answer any questions you may have.
The various car hire companies will have different policies and prices, and with KAYAK you can easily compare them and find the best priced car for your needs. Be sure to carefully read what each agency includes as standard as part of the rental, and with which vehicle. For example, Avis offers free cancellation up to 24h before pickup time, but not on every vehicle, and Budget includes theft and liability insurance coverage on some cars but not others.

FAQs about renting a car at Malmö Airport
Since the car hire agencies have their offices on site, all the same amenities of the airport will be available to you. This means comfortable seating, baby care facilities and toilets, children’s play areas, vending machines, and duty-free shopping.
Drivers must be at least 18 years old to hire a car, as well as have held a full, valid driving licence for at least two years by the date of your rental. Some agencies may require the driver to be 20 years old instead, and even older for certain categories of cars. Additionally, a surcharge may apply for drivers under the age of 25. A credit card or debit card might be needed for a temporary hold, in case of potential fees.
When it’s time to return your car hire at Malmö Airport, you will be required to either park the car in one of the parking spots from your provider where the car was picked up, or a designated returns area. A staff member will collect the keys and check the car to make sure it is in the same condition as it was when picked up. Make sure that the fuel tank is full to avoid being charged extra (and make sure it was full to begin with when first picking it up). If returning the car after hours, a drop box will be available for the keys to be deposited into.
Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Malmö Airport to off-airport locations include Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, keddy by Europcar, and Sixt.
