Driving In Norway

We're headed to Norway in May and plan to rent a car for part of our journey.

Has anyone had any experience with Norwegian Rental Car agencies or driving in Norway?

Norway has a very non-intuitive toll system. It works kind of like EZ Pass, except there's no toll barrier. The plates get read electronically as you pass, and you may not even notice the camera. You have to register and pre-pay for the car in the system, otherwise, you must leave the road at the next exit and pay at a gas station.

I'm going to assume, however, that if you rent the car in Norway, there's a good chance that the car has already been registered and paid. Ask the rental agency for clarification.

Other than that, driving in Norway is like anywhere else in Europe, except for the much lower population density.
