There are many occasions when a rental car comes in handy. Are you on a business trip and need a car to get around the city after landing at Arlanda Airport? Maybe you want to take your partner on a nice weekend trip or the family on a Sunday picnic? Or is it time to do some major shopping or even move to a new house?
Then renting a car is ideal. With rental cars, you can avoid all the headaches of owning a vehicle (including depreciation and costly garage and residential parking) but still have convenient transportation when needed.
Find the right car rental in Stockholm
If you want to rent a car in Stockholm, you don’t have to look far to find a station. The city is full of car rentals – from large international chains to smaller companies. Whether you need to rent a car for a day or want a long-term deal, are looking for a cheap rental vehicle or an exclusive premium car, you’re sure to find something that suits you.
All you need is a valid driving license (sometimes also a passport) and a credit or debit card. And remember that Stockholm has a congestion charge, which you, as a driver, must pay in most cases.
To help you navigate the car hire jungle, we’ve put together a guide for those who need to rent a car in Stockholm. Once you’ve found the right vehicle, which can accommodate both passengers and luggage, it’s time to hit the road. And when you have a car, it’s the perfect time to explore the beautiful Swedish capital and all the gems in its surroundings – the stunning archipelago, for example. Have a nice drive!
The Sixt vehicle fleet has everything you could possibly need, regardless of the size of the car or your wallet. There are inexpensive economy cars for those who want to keep costs down, luxury cars for those looking for a VIP feeling (a sports car perhaps?), eco-friendly electric cars, and spacious minibuses for larger groups. In addition, Sixt offers vans, trucks, and pickups for those who need to transport goods and bulky luggage. BMW, Mercedes Benz, and Audi dominate among the brands. Both short-term and long-term rentals (up to 6 months) are available.
