It has never been easier to rent a rental car directly at Bergen Airport (BGO), to pick it up after arrival and drive off with it. The reason for this is the simplicity of Driveboo. With our platform you can compare all offers of all car rental stations located at bergen Airport, select your desired vehicle and reserve it immediately. This saves you the time and nerves of not having to rent a car until you arrive at Bergen Airport. And you also have the full selection and the best prices.
Although the airport is the second largest in Norway, it is quite clearly arranged. All providers are gathered in the same place. In the arrivals building, adjacent to car park P1, you don't need to travel long distances to get to the offices. From there you will be taken to the car park where the car is waiting for you.
Bergen is not a metropolis in this sense. Nor is Norway the most densely populated country par excellence. Nevertheless, the standard of living is very high and all arriving travellers are offered modern travel with all kinds of cars. That's why all prominent car rental companies are on site:
It is also common in Norway to return a rental car with a full tank of fuel. Otherwise you will be charged an additional amount. It is therefore worthwhile to visit a petrol station in the immediate vicinity before returning the car. First of all, you should be aware that it will take some time to refuel and return the car. You should schedule this time so that you do not miss your flight. The nearest petrol station is the "Circle K Flesland", at the roundabout, which is located directly next to the airport car parks. The exact address would be Flypassvegen 425 in 5258 Blomsterdalen, Norway. It is open from 6am to 11pm.
Bergen Airport is located about 18 km south-east of Bergen. The route to Bergen leads through Flesland, Nesttun and takes about 25 minutes. Because not everyone has their accommodation directly in Bergen, we list some surrounding communities so that you can better estimate your arrival time.
|Place name||Distance to Bergen Airport BGO||Travel time|
|Bergen||11 miles||25 minutes|
|Nesttun||5.5 miles||15 minutes|
|Laksevag||8 miles||16 minutes|
|Straume||12.5 miles||21 minutes|
|Sotra||13.5 miles||23 minutes|
Of course, air traffic is sometimes delayed. For example, if the weather does not play along it can lead to problems that are not on the bill. If the landing is delayed to such an extent that the rental car offices are no longer occupied, you will need public transport or taxis to get to your accommodation. Taxis are no problem anyway and are everywhere present. In Bergen there are also several bus connections (after Hurtigruten, Flesland or Loddefjord, Stroravatenet or Sotra and of course to Bergen) and a train connection (Light Rail).
Most of the flights to and from Bergen depart and land in Oslo, the country's hub. Bergen is located near the coast and is therefore the destination airport for many travellers who want to explore the west coast. However, the airport is not too big. As already written at the beginning, it is even relatively manageable. Nevertheless, WiFi is available to the guests. You can shop in the duty-free shop (cosmetic articles of all kinds), clothing, books or food. Fresh coffee and other catering to bridge waiting times is also available.
Norway is different. The country is wild, romantic, quiet and offers the highest standard of living in Europe. It is worth exploring the vastness of the country in peace and quiet and booking a round trip.
Forests, lakes, fjords, romantic cliffs, idyllic villages - everything is offered here. Those who only book a hotel in a city and do not undertake any major excursions are to blame for this.
To be on the safe side, take a translation of your driver's license with you and always carry your identity card with you. If you want to travel to a city by rental car, you will have to expect toll payments. Norway wants to become "green" and to ban high-emission traffic slowly but surely. Because there are no vignettes that are valid all year round and nationwide, there will always be situations where you will be asked to pay. You should also pay attention to speed limits. Penalties in Norway are very high. 20 km/h speeding can - to give just one example - cost 300 euros and more. So leave the lead foot at home.
