  • Visitors to Bergen who are arriving by air and are flying into Bergen Airport will find the hire car offices located in the main terminal’s arrivals area. hire car companies operating here include Budget, Europcar, and Sixt, among others.
  • If you are visiting Bergen during the winter months, make sure you are prepared for snowy roads. Though the streets and roads are very well maintained in Bergen, the roads can still get snowed over during inclimate weather. Drivers are recommended to check the weather conditions ahead of time before embarking on any long drives and to be prepared for sudden changes in the weather if there is snow in the forecast.
  • Nobody loves rush hour but, fortunately for drivers in Bergen, there isn’t much congestion to worry about here. The limited rush hour in Bergen typically runs from 6:30 a.m. and finishes up at around 9:00 a.m. The afternoon rush hour starts up a bit earlier than in most cities at 2:30 p.m. but it also finishes up early, with rush hour normally cooling down by around 4:30 p.m.

Their kiosk was broken for self check so I had to commute quite far to another location for car, pay for bus tickets with no compensation. Then, when I there to drop off the car, the staff was incredibly rude. I simply asked to use the restroom that was for employees only and they said absolutely not, that I could walk to the nearest gas station 1 mile away.

I tried to request a refund because the location did not exist. I tried many times to find it, had several people (locals) help me, and no one knew where it was. So, I had to use another agency, since I don't think the address listed was correct. I would really love a refund since I was unable to get my car.

Oct 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

AVIS in Bergen was extremely helpful. Due to the bicycle race we could not return the car as planned. The local AVIS people were very accommodating in agreeing to pick up the car and allowing us to catch our flight back to Stockholm. They could not have been more helpful. The poor rating is solely due to the excessive one-way fees and the failure to explain these to us.

Cons:

Nobody unexplained costs for a one-way rental and fact that they could change this fee at their discretion. The Bergen AVIS office increased the one-way fee by 3x (from 4000 SEK to 12000 SEK) without any notice that they were doing that. We did not discover this until we returned from our trip and I checked our credit card statement. The total cost of the 3-day rental was over $2300.00. We feel cheated and taken advantage of and will likely not rent from AVIS again! When I called AVIS customer service I was told there was nothing that could be done....in essence it was our fault for not asking in advance. extremely disappointed.

Pros:

The car itself was fine.

Cons:

When I arrived in Bergen, Norway, to get the car, I was charged an additional $167 for "mandatory" insurance, despite the fact that I had selected insurance when I made the original rental agreement. I agreed only because I could not rent the car without agreeing, and my itinerary depended on having a car from that day. Immediately after returning to the US, I researched the "mandatory" insurance, but even Avis was unable to tell me. I am currently in a dispute with Avis through my credit card company. I also received an additional charge of $25.43 with no explanation. When I requested on, Avis sent documents in Norwegian rather than sending docs in a language I can understand.

Cons:

The address given to us to return the car was incorrect and had us show up at a location that was incorrect. When we dropped the car off at the correct location (which took a while to find), there was a sign on the door telling us to drop the keys off in another location. The other location took us over 30 minutes to find and involved us carrying around all of our luggage all over the street in the rain. It was absolutely the worst experience I've ever had renting a car. I tried calling the 1800 number multiple times and was never able to be connected to someone who could help. I will not be renting from Avis or budget again.

Great car for a great price. Only tricky part was finding the rental counter (we went all the way to the garage where the other companies are, only to have to walk back into the airport). Some direction in an email about where to find the counter would have been great, since it isn't well marked in the airport.

We got charged over $1000 US dollars for minor scratch marks that we probably didn’t even charge. It’s pure robbery to charge us for scratches on the inside floor by the door. Who looks there and takes pictures. And the tire rims? We didn’t hit anything. I am floored a company will flat out be a crook and charge $1000 for scratches we didn’t cause. Unreal. And they won’t communicate with us. Such poor service.
