In Norway, all EU driving licences are accepted. If your licence is printed with a non-Roman alphabet, you will also need an International Driver's Permit (IDP). Valid ID needs to be shown when rental cars are collected.

Age Restrictions

Norway's minimum driving age is 19 and for a rental vehicle, a valid driving licence must have been held for a year. Further age requirements may apply for different car models. There are young driver surcharges for those under 23.

Credit Card Payment

Car hire payment in Norway is by credit card only and not by prepaid or debit cards. All major credit cards and AirPlus are accepted. The card used must be presented at vehicle collection and be in the driver's name. Extra costs will be charged to this card.
