Anyone planning to visit the lovely city of Copenhagen in the foreseeable future, regardless of whether the visit is for reasons of business or pleasure, will find its much easier to get around if they have their own means of transport. There’s an abundance of attractions to see in Copenhagen itself, and the surrounding area offer even more to view and enjoy. Luckily Copenhagen car hire companies are plentiful, so you will be spoilt for choice.
The cheapest option you’re most likely going to find is an entry level vehicle with an engine capacity of between 800cc and 1000cc. These nippy little fuel-savers are a pleasure to drive in city traffic, they use virtually no fuel and to park them is the easiest thing in the world.
A step up from these entry level models you will find the 1200cc to 1600cc models. With significant improvements in engine power and space, they are ideal for both city trips and trips to towns in the vicinity. Their fuel consumption should still be excellent.
At the top of the range you have vehicles with large engines – 2000cc and more – and lots of space for both luggage and passengers. SUVs are good examples of what you will find in this category. These are excellent for small groups of people or families. Space and driving comfort are very important in this type of vehicle, while fuel consumption plays a secondary role.
Before making your final choice of rental company, first find out what their insurance excess amount is. A few of the companies providing rock-bottom daily rates have very high insurance excess amounts. In the end it might be better to pay a little bit more per day, but get a more reasonable excess amount.
If you are going to rent a car for a period of more than 1 week, you should qualify for a substantial discount on their normal daily rates. Unless you really only intend to drive within the boundaries of the city, also make sure you choose a package that provides unlimited daily miles/kilometers. If possible, compare the various packages of the Copenhagen car hire companies on the Internet before you arrive – it will make it much easier to choose the best deal.
