Car Rentals in Scandinavia
Driving through Scandinavia is delightful. You’ll notice that drivers keep their headlights on even during the day. It is required by law in most of Scandinavia. Take a good pair of sunglasses. The sunlight creates a lot of glare when you drive.

Picking Up, Leaving The Cars, Collision, and Loss-damage
If you pick up a car in one city and leave it in another city, you be charged for this which is considered to be one-way services fee. The cost of collision or loss-damage waiver can be quite expensive. Generally, if you have an accident, you are responsible for the automobile. Some of the rental companies offer a collision-damage waiver (CDW) which ranges from $6-$20 a day. It is wise to confirm all the charges mentioned above. Make sure you fill the tank just before you turn in the vehicle to avoid being highly charged for this.
