Car rental

Any suggestions for vehicle rental to use in Norway? We will need a mini van due to number of people. Will be renting at and returning to Oslo. We need to have 2 drivers on the vehicle.

We used Autoeurope when we went to Norway (and actually have used them for almost all our trips to Europe) When you need specialized help, I recommend Gemut. They are experts at how to check everything and come up with the most cost effective way to get what you need. We used them in 2008 when we wanted 2 drivers. We were picking up in Munich. He arranged our rental from downtown Munich (cheaper than at the airport), and with a rental company that allowed a second driver. When we were in Norway, we enjoyed Oslo for 4 days, then picked up our car in the downtown area to head out to the fjords. They allowed us to return it at the Oslo airport for no extra cost. (Gemut uses Autoeurope but can help with the details. You could also just call autoeurope instead of booking online to be sure you get what you need. I have alway found them to be super helpful. )

We love Autoeurope...great and reputable broker that lists al of their terms and conditions, has awesome telephone support, and lets you easily cancel. You have a couple of options with them. Use the U.S site, or check prices on their other European sites. Both sites are very easy to navigate. Don't forget......most times you get a better rate if you DO NOT pick up your car at the airport or train station. Go to their web sites and ply with the options. There can be huge differences in prices. For our June rental in Bergen we found the best prices, and insurance options! by using the AutoeuropeEU site. Go to their site and read about the "refundable excess" insurance option.

For our auto rental in Denmark we found the best prices by going to Danish Sixt web site.
