KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lillehammer

  • Book car hire in Lillehammer for more freedom during your trip. You'll be able to travel on your own schedule and make any detours to interesting sights you spot along the way. There are a number of scenic drives you can take, such as Bjørnson's Road, which leads you through the lowlands and beautiful farms. You can also reach Espedalan in around an hour. In this region, around 500 moose migrate in October and November each year. Lillehammer is also considered the gateway to Gudbrandsdalen, and you can drive along the Gudbrandsdalen Food Trail and experience some of the region's best cuisine.
  • Lillehammer doesn't have its own airport. Most of the time, people visiting Lillehammer will arrive at Oslo Airport (OSL), which is roughly just 1h 45min away by car. The car hire desks are on Level U2 of the P10 car park. You'll find a range of international companies to choose from. Alternatively, you can take a direct bus from Oslo to Lillehammer. You'll find most of the companies in town near the corner of Industrigata and Rosenlundvegen.
  • When using car hire in Lillehammer, be mindful of pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians will expect cars to slow to a stop at street crossings and their right of way at pedestrian crossings is strictly enforced. You should also factor in extra travel time when planning long trips. With so much beautiful countryside, it's always worth taking detours or the scenic route, and you'll likely find yourself stopping along the way to take it all in.
  • Many people visit Lillehammer during the winter months. This means you'll need to have winter tyres equipped. They will be provided by your Lillehammer car hire company. Legally, these can be with or without studs, but in Lillehammer, you will likely encounter ice and hard-packed snow, which can be easier to navigate if you get tyres with studs. Bear in mind that some mountain passes may be inaccessible during the winter months (and the highest roads can remain closed until summer).
  • Book your car hire in Lillehammer at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Lillehammer are around -120% cheaper than other car types, on average
