Should you rent a car in the Faroe Islands

If you're arriving by air into Vagar Airport, renting a car to get to Tórshavn and around the Faroe Islands is the best means of transport. Unless you have pre-arranged transfers or have arranged to be picked up from the airport, whilst public transport to the main towns is possible, hiring a car is by far the most convenient means of independent transport around the Faroe Islands. With class leading rental agents such as Avis and Budget based at the airport, car rental standards are very high. Rental cars are new or nearly new models and due to short driving distances are little used with low mileage. The roads are generally quiet and very well-maintained making driving and renting a car in the Faro Islands a joy.

Where to go in a rental car in the Faroe Islands

Once collected from Vagar Airport or Tórshavn, your hire car is the key to seeing parts of the Faroe Island simply inaccessible by any other means. From north to south, east the west, the group of islands hide a plethora of villages, lighthouses and farmhouses that'll take your breath away. A day at the wheel can uncover a weeks-worth of memories all from the comfort of a reliable rental car from a trusted car rental company in the Faroe Islands.

From the largest city, Tórshavn in the southwest of the archipelago to Vidoy in the far north east, accessible only by a trio of road bridges, take the route less trodden and enjoy stunning scenery along every mile of road in the Faroe Islands. If you are looking to explore to the far reaches of the Faroe Islands, we recommend an SUV or 4x4 rentals in the Faroe Islands, both capable of tackling terrain an ordinary rental car might struggle with.

Driving in the Faroe Islands

Driving in the Faroe Islands shouldn't be something to be worried about. The roads are among the quietest in the world and don't suffer from high seasonal traffic.

That's the real risk, losing concentration whilst taking in the views! Many rural and mountain roads are single track with limited passing space so take care and be prepared to stop, local drivers are very accommodating and rushing around just isn't the way of life in the Faroe Islands.
