Top tips for hiring a car at Svolvær Helle airport

  • There are few, if any, public transport options available at the airport, so a car hire at Svolvaer Helle Airport (SVJ) is a highly convenient way to travel the 5.7 km to the town centre. An airport car hire also offers the flexibility and convenience to explore the town and the broader Lofoten region. Lofoten War Memorial Museum and Magic Ice Lofoten are popular spots in the southern part of town, while Austenfjorden and Punto Panoramico are spectacular viewing points about 14 km north along the E10.
  • You can get a variety of attractive options for a Svolvaer Helle Airport car hire from local suppliers like Rent a Car-Lofoten or major ones like Hertz, SIXT and Avis. Available inventory includes economy/compact cars, like the Mini or Volkswagen Polo, and SUV vehicles, such as the Mazda CX-3. Jaguar and BMW models represent the luxury car category, while a Peugeot 5008 is ideal as a people mover. Budget and SIXT have offices in the main terminal building, but if you wish to obtain a car hire at Svolvaer Helle Airport from Avis and Hertz, they are only a short walk away. Svolvaer Helle Airport is a small regional facility that makes navigation relatively easy and straightforward.
  • Providers may use return locations that differ from those used for pick-ups, so be sure to get the relevant details at the time of booking or from your provider’s website. For example, SIXT provides return parking spaces directly in front of the airport’s entrance, but Avis has three locations in Svolvaer, so returning to a location other than the airport may be possible. Many offer 24-hour return service, so you can either leave the keys with an employee during regular hours or leave them in the secured box for after-hour returns.
  • A difficult time to pick up a car hire at Svolvaer Helle Airport is outside of business hours, so it’s generally recommended that you do so from 07:00-23:00. You should also note Svolvaer Helle Airport’s hours of operation, which can affect your ability to drop-off vehicles. You might also experience setbacks in cases where flights have been delayed or if you arrive before your vehicle is ready. Plan ahead to ensure a smooth pick-up and drop-off experience.
  • Book your car hire at Svolvær Helle airport at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Which car hire companies are straightforward at Svolvaer Helle Airport?

    All the major providers at Svolvaer Helle Airport are dedicated to providing you with fast and efficient service. Having advanced reservations is important at small airports with limited inventory, increasing the likelihood of obtaining a suitable vehicle for your needs. Corporate and personal account holders usually receive preferential treatment with major providers like Hertz and Avis, which significantly reduces wait times.

  • What road rules does one need to know when driving a car hire from Svolvaer Helle Airport?

    Be aware of the following road rules when driving your Svolvaer Airport car hire to town and elsewhere around Lofoten.

The legal speed limit within town boundaries is 50 km/h, while it’s about 80 km/h along rural roads and a maximum of 100 km/h along highways such as the E10.

3.6 Poor

Jun 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Hertz at this location (or in Norway) has terrible cars. I got a Suzuki that had been recalled, which was never fixed and was not safe to drive. It had erratic braking, warning lights for the malfunctioning radar and brakes went off every 15 mins, no cruise control, no arm rest. Go with Budget/Avis!

8.0 Very Good

May 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Be aware that the car rental desk is across the parking lot from the airport (a very short walk). My reservation indicated that an airport shuttle was necessary. This caused some confusion when an airport worker confirmed that a shuttle "would be right along" to pick me up.
