Rep who checked in was horrible. 8 times I told him that I had Ins coverage with my credit card benefits. Each time he refused and charged me anyway. At one time he said the res wasn’t theirs, other time he said I could leave. Unbelievably poor service and misleading info. Please report this guy to execs... he needs to go or be retrained. I would go with a different co.

Confusion at pickupCar that we got at the end was great. Return was smooth and quick.Confusion, misinformation first day and no car for winter conditions in Sweden, no money back. I had to call Sixt headquarter to sort it out. Car was provided next day. Maybe I should inform to get car with winter tires, although all other rentals I asked had them as standard. My problem is the communication at the branch. Next time I will go with a different car rental.

We’ve rented cars for over 40 years. When dropping off this car the agent insisted on charging us for a scratch that we could barely detect. It was under the rear door, not even visible when the door was closed. It looked like dirt. We’ve never been charged for damage like this before. It felt like an assault. I still can’t believe the agent insisted we be charged

Good customer service but outrageously strict return policyThe car I received was as expected. The young man ts the check-out counter was exceptionally helpful when I had problems with my American credit card. (Unfortunately, I didn't catch his name, but he appeared to be of immigrant background, and I hope the company knows what a great employee they have!) .When I returned the car, the employee in charge of returns was exceptionally diligent in going over the car which had a number of minor scratches when I received it. I ought to have checked these more carefully before departing with the car, but after 20+ years of renting cars during visits to Denmark, I have never had any issues, so I didn't do so. When I returned the car, I was informed that the car had two additional minor scratches that I would be held responsible for. I honestly do not believe that these scratches happened while I was using the car, but of course I have no proof. Given the fact that a number of other scratches remained on the car, the company obviously do not fix these, so it seems extravagant that my insurance company will be charged for repairing these. Besides, the windshield wipers were not working correctly (which I only discovered in a rain storm), but when I mentioned this to the employee upon return, I was given not even an apology. Next time around, I will llok for another car rental company.

The staff was extremely helpful, and very friendly. It seems like they did everything they could to help us get into an available car that they had.I had rented a large seven person van through the kayak website, unfortunately they did not have a large seven passenger van. We had to cram every piece of luggage that we had into a five person station wagon. It was a bit tight. I don’t know if I blame kayak, or the Hertz rental place.

No key dropoffThe price and the car were great.Hertz was the only rental company at the rental car center without a key drop, so after my family hoofed our luggage to the bus stop, I still had to run back to the car rental center office and drop off the key. Even there, they didn’t have a key drop, so I wasn’t sure if I had to wait in line or if I could just hand them the key over the counter, while other customers were checking in. When I got back to the bus, the shuttle was gone. A small, unnecessary hassle.

Kayak service very very poorNothing.I booked a car using KAYAK website, providing all required information, including where I live. When I went to pick up the car, I discovered that different conditions are applied if you reside in the same country where you are renting the car. E.g.: 100 km/day instead of unlimited, higher price than agreed, etc. Ok, It was written in the terms and condition (a very long document....). But kayak site, AFTER collecting my data (including where I live), showed me a specific price and specific condition, different from the real ones. Kayak took my money but didn't provide me the service !!!!

Amazingly upgrade!We got an unepxpected upgrade which made the whole rental amazing! Pick up was a breeze and the staff were very nice.Dropping off after hours was a bit confusing, but I was thankful they offered a key drop, considering their office closed at 2pm.

Pick up was easy, given good advice on tolls, nice car.The Audi A4 nav system was a bit too complex and the engine shut off feature is annoying in traffic. The one problem was we were not provided proper paperwork such as insurance, so it was fortunate that the car did not impounded as Belgium is very strict on this.

Staff was helpful at pickup but gave no instructions on drop off.They failed to inform us that if you dropped off after 5 o’clock you had to pay for overnight parking and there is no where to drop off. You have to pay for public parking. That made the rental extremely expensive for what we got. Very disappointing.

Top tips for hiring a car in Copenhagen

  • Copenhagen has a plethora of sights to offer, from the port, the aquarium, and the Museum of Zoology to the iconic Little Mermaid positioned on a rock. Having your own hire car during your stay in Copenhagen will not only provide ultimate flexibility and your own timeframe to explore the city, but also allow you to venture out into the scenic Danish landscape and find out why it is here where the happiest people on Earth live.
  • Start your journey to Copenhagen hassle-free and pick up a hire car conveniently upon landing at Copenhagen Airport. There is a car hire center located on-site and signs will indicate the way from the respective terminal. Companies like Avis, Europcar, or Sixt provide their vehicles for a smooth 20-minute ride into the city center. Upon driving out of the airport, look for the E20, which will bring you to the heart of Copenhagen.
  • Denmark and Copenhagen are very flat, so there is no uphill challenge when it comes to driving through the city. Public transport is also very well-structured within the city boundaries, so, when exploring Copenhagen, the hire car can also be left at the hotel or at a P+R to avoid driving through the city. When venturing out of the city into the countryside, the roads are broad and in good conditions, providing for a smooth driving experience.
  • Copenhagen can get lots of snow during the winter months, and it only has about 7 hours of daylight. Having on the headlights is a must, so that other drivers can see you, and adapting the speed to road and weather conditions is pivotal as snow and ice can cover the streets. Watch out especially in the morning hours, as plows may not have reached all corners of the city yet.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Copenhagen for €26 or less
  • Book your car hire in Copenhagen at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Copenhagen are around 9% more expensive than airport locations on average

  • For travelers who mainly want to cruise through the city, an economic compact car is the best choice. Business travelers may also want to opt for a compact sports car to add some style to their driving experience. When leaving the city and exploring the Danish countryside, an SUV is the car of choice, as it provides the much-needed road traction. Bear in mind that manual gear shift cars are most common in Denmark and opting for an automatic car may cost extra.

  • All speed limits are given in kilometers per hour, as is usual in Europe. Inside the city, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed, unless indicated otherwise or when weather conditions don’t allow drivers to go as fast. 80 km/h (50 mph) can be driven on rural country roads and freeways allow up to 130 km/h (81 mph).

  • Petrol is generally more expensive in Europe, and Denmark is no exception. A refill will cost around 10.79 Danish Kroner per liter, which is about $6.56 per gallon and $1.64 per liter. As it is with many European petrol stations, some of them close at 10pm, especially within the city area. 24/7 stations can usually be found around airports and the freeways.

  • Copenhagen is divided into four parking zones: red, green, blue, and yellow. The closer you get to the city center, the more expensive parking becomes. On-street parking is generally pretty expensive in Copenhagen, so opting for accommodation with an included parking spot or choosing a parking garage are good alternatives. Public parking lots and garages include Jeudan Parking Dronningens Tværgade or Q-Park Adelgade.
