Customer questions about Vagar Airport car hire

Hello Fiona, thanks. I'm looking at renting a car from Rhino at the Vagar airport in the Faroe Islands and I have a couple of questions, The first is about the under 25 fee as I'm 24. The site says to look for details of that in the rate details section specifically, but I can't find any mention of what the rate is. Would you know or be able to find out?

Hi, no problem, I have checked this for you and there is a young driver fee for under 25's, this is stated as 21 EUR per day. We do offer a young driver discount to help mitigate this extra charge that I would be more than happy to apply for you.

Vagar Airport Mini Guide

Who Flies Into Vagar Airport?
The Faroe Islands are almost a land that time forgot, the close knit communities rarely see any crime and life is simple there. Tourists are drawn by these factors and the dramatic scenery of the islands. The weather may not always be perfect but when it is, there are few more beautiful places on earth.

How can I get to Vagar Airport?
There are a number of ways with international flights from Scandinavian airports but of most interest to UK travellers is the seasonal flight from London Gatwick each day with Atlantic Airways. There’s also an infrequent helicopter flight with the same company to Aberdeen Airport. The flight time from London is around three hours.

Vagar Airport

What is Vagar Airport Like?
It’s small but currently undergoing expansion work that is due for completion next year. The aim of the airport expansion is to allow bigger aircraft from wider flung destinations to encourage the growth of tourism in the islands. A longer runway has been completed and the terminal expansion will allow for more passenger facilities and speedier transit should larger numbers of visitors transpire. At the moment facilities are limited in the airport with a small café serving snacks and hot drinks plus a kiosk selling newspaper and sweets together with a range of Faroese souvenirs. There’s a post box and an ATM but no banking facilities. You’ll find two car hire company desks in the arrivals hall where you should collect your hire car and there’s a small airport and tourist information desk.
