KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Aarhus

  • There are many advantages to car rental in Aarhus, and it is a wise bet if you want to have the freedom to explore the city and surrounds on your own. Aarhus is the second biggest city in Denmark, filled with hundreds of things to do, but you are also very close to the lake district of Sohojlandet, with its breathtaking lakes and gorgeous forests. There are many options for cheap Aarhus car rental if you book in advance.
  • Getting your car rental in Aarhus is best booked and picked up at Aarhus Airport (AAR). Here you can select an appropriate car rental company in advance through KAYAK and then simply fill out the paperwork at the airport car counters. You can choose from a selection of major car rental companies like Hertz, Sixt, Europcar, Avis, Budget, Alamo, Enterprise and National. Depending on what car rental you need, filter your choices and pre-book, so you guarantee you get the car you desire.
  • Driving in Aarhus is like driving in any city; it comes with a little getting used to. If you obey the road rules, you will find the drive pleasant. The roads are paved and well marked. Keep an eye out for city bikes. Bicycles have right of way, so you must make sure you stop for them. There are bicycle paths all over the city to look out for, and you have to always drive with your headlights on, even in the daytime.
  • Driving in the city comes with its difficulties. As this is the second largest city in Denmark, the roads can be very busy. You not only have to watch out for other cars but also be very aware of other vehicles, like buses, trams and cyclists. The majority of people use bicycles as transport, so you need to have your eyes peeled and check your mirrors regularly. Avoid peak-hour traffic, like at around 5 pm after work, when everybody is anxious to get home.
  • Book your car hire in Aarhus at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Aarhus?

    For your car rental in Aarhus, what type of car you choose really depends on what sort of trip you are planning. If you are coming to the city for a business trip, then you need a compact or intermediate car to get around the streets easily. If you want to take your car on a journey around the lake district, you might find the option of an SUV a bit more attractive; you will have more luggage space, safer technologies, air-conditioned comfort, large interior space and comfortable seats for longer distance travel. If you want to take the less-beaten track, make sure you get an SUV with high clearance.

  • What’s the speed limit in Aarhus?

    Get to know the speed limits or be prepared to pay a fine. Speed limits in Aarhus are 50 kph in the city, 80 kph outside the city and 110-130 kph on the motorway. These are general, so watch out for road signs indicating the limit. The signs do not display the speed but rather have lines dictating whether it is a city road or a motorway, so this can be confusing. Try familiarising yourself with the signs beforehand, to avoid any traffic offences.

  • Where are the best places to park in Aarhus?

    Parking in Aarhus city centre can be difficult and very pricey. There are options for free street parking, but it is going to be difficult to find these easily. Rather, park your car in a car park for the day if you plan to explore the city centre. There are paid meters in town, but they are known to be quite pricey. Some of the car parks in Aarhus can be found at Navitas at the Harbour, Bruuns Gallery, ARoS Aarhus Museum, Dokk1 Aarhus City and Salling Department Store. Do some research beforehand and make your way to the car parks to enjoy the day with your car safe and secure.

Staff at Eurocar were friendly and competent. Their English was excellent, which was helpful because I speak no Danish. Everything went as expected. Plus, they upgraded the car from manual to automatic transmission at no additional cost.

It is SO hard to recharge the car in Aarhus for the return as there is a severe lack of ChaDemo charging stations in the city. I tried for 3-4 hours to find a fast charger in the city but there were none available and I had to return the car with less than 50% charge. I understand that when hiring a petrol car the fuel can be filled up easily before returning but when there are only slow chargers available for EVs in the city. This makes it hard to return the car charges and then there are extra fees for the car being undercharged.

I rented a Nissan Leaf, assuming that I could easily recharge the car. No one in the Avis dealership advised me otherwise. However, when it came time to recharge, I was unable to download the appropriate apps through the App store because I was not in North America. I had to call a trouble number for Clever (a charging company) who overroad the system so I could at least drive the car to my hotel. I then had to drive back to an Avis rental outlet at the Billund Airport and they let me exchange the car for the ONLY one they had. I asked what they would have done if they had no cars at all and they said, "We will call you a taxi." Thankfully an exchange was possible. People renting electric cars in Europe who come from North America ought to know that charging might not be possible if you expect to download an app for various charging companies.
