Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Although Sweden's roads are generally well-maintained and well-signposted caution must be taken when driving your rental car at night and during the long Winter months. It is not unusual for moose, deer and other wild animals to be on the road. Sweden has two main motorways, the E6 runs from Trelleborg to Oslo in Norway while the E4 stretches from Helsingborg to the Finnish border.

More tips for enjoying driving in Sweden:

  • Drive on the right in Sweden.
  • Kilometres are used for distances and speed limits.
  • Dipped headlights are required at all times.
  • From 1st December to 31st March Winter tyres must be fitted and snow chains are allowed. It is compulsory to have antifreeze in windscreen fluid and snow shovels must be carried.
  • A daily congestion charge of 20 SEK applies in the cities of Gothenburg and Stockholm while the bridges of Sundsvall and Motala have toll stations. Sundsvall is 15 SEK a day while Motala is 10 SEK a day.
  • Children under 1.35m in height need appropriate child seats and if children under 1.40 are in the front of a vehicle the passenger airbag must be disabled.
  • In the Swedish countryside and smaller towns parking is widely available and often free. In the major cities, parking is metered and may be harder to find in the peak Summer months. Roadside parking must be in the direction of traffic.
  • If you cause damage to rental vehicles by driving off paved surfaces you will be charged for any repairs.

Speed limits in Sweden

Speed limits in Sweden vary according to season and road conditions but are always clearly marked:

  • Residential areas: 30 to 70 km/h
  • National roads: 70 - 90 km/h
  • Motorways: 90 - 120 km/h

Traffic Infractions and on-the-spot fines:

Non-residents are required to pay any fines on-the-spot in cash. Speeding fines range from 1500 to 4000 SEK. In cases of drink driving foreign licences may be marked as not valid in Sweden.

Top 4 architectural sites

  • Moderna Museet
  • Icehotel Jukkasjarvi
  • Turning Torso, Malmo
  • Feskekorka, Gothenburg

Collections of contemporary art are housed in the Moderna Museet on the Stockholm island of Skeppsholmen. The Icehotel at Jukkasjarvi was the world's first hotel made entirely of ice and snow when it opened in 1989. Not surprisingly, it is rebuilt every Winter. The Turning Torso in Malmo is the tallest building in Scandinavia. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava this Neo-futuristic skyscraper was inspired by his own white marble sculpture, the Twisting Torso. Feskekorka literally translates as the fish church and this large Gothenburg market is the best place to sample some of Sweden's delicious seafood.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • Botanical Garden, Gothenburg
  • Wanas Sculpture Park
  • Sarek National Park, Jokkmokk
  • Hoga Kusten

Gothenburg's Botanical Garden displays an impressive 16,000 species of plants set in different habitats. In the Wanas Sculpture Park at Ostra Goinge art, history and nature all come together. The park also has a white medieval castle. The long-established Sarek National Park has everything outdoor enthusiasts can want along with six mountain peaks and over 100 glaciers. Magnificent glacial scenery is also a feature of the beautiful Hoga Kusten coastline.

Important Film locations

Two of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series of Swedish thrillers have been turned into films. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl who Played with Fire (2009) were both filmed in Sweden at locations such as Stockholm, Uppsala and Solleftea. In the Russian thriller Gorky Park (1983) Helsinki and Stockholm stood in for Moscow. The avant-garde staging of the drama Dogville (2003) was filmed entirely in a Trollhättan studio despite being set in Colorado, USA.

Cristian Dan N.

They were friendly. Everything was fine, they give me a bonus (I rented a car class and they give me an upgrade to a SUV, modern, hybrid, what can I say?). Very helpful and receptive at my needs. I’ll recommend.

steven m.

Great service.

We had accidentally booked at a different office, but they managed to help us out anyways and solve the problem. Fantastic staff and I will definitely go again.

Vehicle is in amazing condition too.

A.R R.

Sixt is one of the most convenient Car rentals in Sweden. Easy pickup and easy drop of. A huge selection of cars to choose from.

Niklāvs P.

Was renting a car for a weekend travels nearby Stockholm. As usual, I book something from entry level class rental cars, so that price is not to high. My arrival was quite late at evening, but all went fine and someone was still at rental, even at 22.00 to 23.00 o'clock. Also, this time Sixt rental gave a level up higher car, than in my original booking (this might be due to theire computer system issues that weekend, since all things had to be done only on paper).

All togather, had a really positive first experiance with Sixt rental Sweden.

Thnks for great weekend, cheers :)

Mikro G.

Many choices with very good cars

Aariz R.

We have been renting cars from here since the last 6 years and every time we have a great experience with their cars. Their entire fleet has new cars, sometimes I got even brand new (just 300 kms driven)

 

The cars are neat and tidy, the pick and drop process is seamless

 

I wish we had a choice of cars though. You can choose a segment of cars to rent but you cannot particularly choose which car you want to rent.

Tiger C.

good service, friendly staff. When returning the car, an emplyee was bringing me to the the station free of charge!

Jan V.

After hours car pickup possible for fee.

Erik de R.

It is fine, just a regular place nothing special.

Staff seems friendly and helpful.

 

All the rental companys in one building.

Piotr B.

I've rented twice in this station during the last year.

The first time - they gave us the exact model we booked - BMW 1. It was all OK, no problems during pick-up nor return.

The second time - we got a bit smaller car than we expected but we haven''t complained. It was Mercedes GLC hybrid, a great car for winter driving conditions.

All in all - the service was great. We topped up AdBlue (without prior notice) and got refunded after the return when we showed the receipt.

They are answering the phone (I wanted to return the car late at night the day before). 5/5

Christer B.

Always a great experience with Sixt. Friendly and fast service, and a great car (Audi Q3) this time.

Janet D.

Rented cars a couple of times. We were spoilt for choice with a wide range of cars available in good condition. The staff were flexible to accomodate timings and choice of pickup/drop spots. They upgraded our car without additional fee even. Would recommend.

Maria K.

FANTASTIC! I arrived too late and the office had just closed. The employee Ali offered to drive me to my hotel although his shift had already ended. How kind is that? Thanks so much!
