Top tips for hiring a car in Faroe Islands

The biggest advantage of renting a car in the Faroe Islands is the freedom to explore the beautiful islands. The archipelago has various scenic routes, known as "Buttercup routes," which are indicated by a small green sign with a yellow flower. As there are no highways on the islands, you will find yourself driving on winding mountain roads that cross from island to island via bridges and tunnels under the sea.
The Faroe Islands have laws for children traveling in child seats. Any child under the age of four years is required to sit in a child safety seat. No child under the age of 12 is allowed to sit in the front of a vehicle, but must sit in the rear seats. You must endeavour to bring your own child car seat or rent one from your car hire agency, as you are required to have one for your child on car trips from the airport.
You will find that traffic is much heavier around Torshavn and bigger towns, but generally the other islands have quieter roads. Only in Torshavn will you find traffic lights in operation. You should also watch out for sheep in the roads and grazing on the sides of roads; drive slowly in rural areas.
As public transportation is limited, the best way to discover the Faroe Islands is to rent a car. There are hundreds of miles of well-maintained roads, highways, and tunnels, as well as ferries, bridges, and sub-sea tunnels that connect the 18 islands. On a single road trip, you will be able to drive from one end of one individual island to the opposite end in a matter of hours.
