Sweden Car Rental Mini Guide

If you are visiting Sweden you can use your rental car to drive to the neighbouring countries of Norway, Denmark and Finland if you wish. Sweden has some impressive ski resorts and hiring a 4x4 is a popular choice with travellers. Conforming to safety requirements is of course important so we are able to pre-book snow tyres and snow chains should you need them.

Whilst public transport in Sweden is generally excellent, it can never offer the same freedom that self-drive car rental offers.
