Danes are notably anti-car. The government does what it can to encourage citizens to use other modes of transportation. We join many guidebooks in recommending against car rental within Copenhagen itself. Street parking is expensive and the city is built for humans, not cars. In a city this pedestrian-friendly, cars seem like a mistake. (If you ignore our sage advice and decide to rent a car, one traffic rule to keep in mind is that bicyclists have right turn right-of-way.)
All this clarified, car rentals can helpfully facilitate travel to other parts of Denmark, either to other cities or to the countryside. To get the best price for your car rental, reserve a car before leaving home. Ask for an all-inclusive rate with full insurance and unlimited kilometers. Many of the less expensive rental cars in Europe will have neither air conditioning nor roll-down windows. To get the best deal, shop around, reserve ahead of time and pay in advance.
A good rate for a three-day rental in Copenhagen is 1570DKK (€210.50).
To find the cheapest price on rental cars in Copenhagen, we recommend Auto Europe. EuroCheapo has partnered with Auto Europe to offer the guaranteed best prices on rental cars throughout Europe.
Some car rental packages include unlimited kilometers, others don't. Some have insurance against theft or collision. Others don't. Generally, be sure to ask details about insurance and accidents, as plans vary. Sometimes paying cash makes a difference in insurance coverage. Check with your credit card company to see if purchasing your rental with your credit card will provide you with insurance automatically. Most agencies only require a valid driver license and one year of driving experience. The minimum age to rent is 21. However, many agencies will not rent to anyone under 23. Renters under 25 often pay a daily surcharge.
