Top tips for hiring a car in Denmark

  • In Denmark, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for drivers is 0.05%. This means that if you are found driving with a higher BAC, you may face severe penalties, including fines, licence suspension, and even imprisonment. It is highly recommended to avoid drinking and driving altogether. Consider taxi services if you plan on consuming alcohol while in Denmark, ensuring your safety and compliance with the law.
  • In Denmark, vehicles drive on the right-hand side of the road. It is mandatory for children under 135 cm in height to use a child seat while travelling in a car. Using a handheld mobile phone while driving is strictly prohibited, with fines and penalties for offenders. It is advisable to familiarise yourself with these basic laws before driving in Denmark to ensure compliance and a safe journey.
  • When hiring a car in Denmark, it is recommended to opt for a compact or mid-size vehicle. The country has well-maintained roads and cities with limited parking spaces. Smaller cars are more manoeuvrable and easier to park in crowded areas. Additionally, smaller cars tend to be more fuel-efficient, which can help save costs on fuel expenses. However, it ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences for your trip to Denmark.
  • In Denmark, most car rental companies require a credit card for car hire. The credit card is typically used for the deposit and any additional charges. It is important to have a valid credit card in the primary driver's name when picking up the rental vehicle. Some companies may accept debit cards, but it is best to check with the specific rental company in advance to confirm their payment requirements.
