Car Rentals in Scandinavia

Car Rentals in Scandinavia

Well-maintained roads make driving through Scandinavia exciting and enjoyable. However, there are rules and good practices you should learn before doing so. Firstly, you must keep your headlights on even during  the  day. In addition, vehicles in Scandinavia disembark passengers on the right of the way. Bear in mind, fines for speeding are quite high. Avoid driving over the limit, even a little. Other than that, to overcome the glare from the sun, you should also take a good pair of sunglasses.  On top of that,  several countries require drivers to be over 20 years old, but some car rentals in Scandinavia require that drivers be at least 25, so make sure you ask about this matter.  See the following car rentals you might be need.
