KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Umeå

  • When visiting the stunning educational hub of Umea in Sweden, use a car hire company to enjoy not just one of the cultural centres of the country, but will find yourself a stone’s throw away from the beautiful natural wilderness. Cheap car hire in Umea will give you the opportunity to take in museums, art galleries, cultural centres and so much more, as well as put you 22min away from Lake Bäcksjön, the popular spot that is used to view the Northern Lights. Meander down the banks of the Ume River surrounding the city, and if you visit Umea during the spring you will find an array of festivals, including the popular music festival, Umea Open.
  • If arriving in Umea by plane, you will land at the Umea Airport (UME). The airport has a Budget car hire in the Arrivals terminal, from which you can pre-book with KAYAK. Once you have collected your hired car, hop on the Blå Vägen Road and E4 and find yourself in downtown Umea in about 10min.
  • Cheap car hire in Umea will make exploring a breeze. This well-maintained, modern city has roads that are tarred and easy to navigate in the main city, with the odd dirt road in the countryside areas. The city has many roundabouts, which are important to understand as a driver, as this is the primary way of controlling traffic flow. You will find the road signs are mostly in Swedish, so understanding the basics of the language will be a good help when navigating. You will drive on the right side of the road and keep your headlights on, even during the daytime.
  • The most challenging aspect of driving a cheap car hire in Umea will be in the winter months, when snowfall can be quite heavy. While it's likely your car hire company will provide snow chains for tyres in winter, ensure you also have a scraper and will be parked underground overnight to stop the hired car from freezing. The city itself has relatively calm traffic except in the city centre where you can expect congestion not just at rush hour, but most of the day. Book a GPS navigation system with your hired car and spot traffic build-up beforehand.
  • Book your car hire in Umeå at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury car hire in Umeå are around -54% cheaper than other car types, on average

5.2 Fair

Cons:

I booked a car for 3 days at a good rate. On the second day I phoned Budget to extend for one day at the same rate. I was told "no problem". It turned out that extra day cost me as much as the other 3 days, but this was not mentioned on the phone. When I queried it they said it was because "no cars were available"! Why not tell me the true rate when I phoned, then I would not have extended?

Pros:

Everything in the car was very clean and really nice car for driving. In advance though it would be good to let you know if it is automatic or not.

Cons:

The only problem was that I could not pay with Maestro and could not pay cash as well.

Car hire insurance in Umeå

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Umeå car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Umeå.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Umeå car hire.
