All the major providers at Svolvaer Helle Airport are dedicated to providing you with fast and efficient service. Having advanced reservations is important at small airports with limited inventory, increasing the likelihood of obtaining a suitable vehicle for your needs. Corporate and personal account holders usually receive preferential treatment with major providers like Hertz and Avis, which significantly reduces wait times.

Cons:Hertz at this location (or in Norway) has terrible cars. I got a Suzuki that had been recalled, which was never fixed and was not safe to drive. It had erratic braking, warning lights for the malfunctioning radar and brakes went off every 15 mins, no cruise control, no arm rest. Go with Budget/Avis!
8,0 Very Good
Cons:Be aware that the car rental desk is across the parking lot from the airport (a very short walk). My reservation indicated that an airport shuttle was necessary. This caused some confusion when an airport worker confirmed that a shuttle "would be right along" to pick me up.
