Last updated: September 12, 2023

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!
