Vagar Airport Guide

Car Hire

The unbelievable beauty of nature is what many people come to the Faroe Islands for. Countless windswept islands, precipitous seaside cliffs, the deep blue ocean, the verdant valleys and the fresh clean air are the strong selling points for the islands' tourism. To get here, you can fly to the only airport in the Faroe Islands—Vagar Airport. From here, you can drive to the capital Tórshavn and begin exploring the remote picturesque areas and small fishing villages with your car rental.

Who to Book With
Three car hire suppliers are present in the small airport at Vágar. Upon arrival, you can head to the desks of Unicar, Avis and Hertz. There are a couple more car rental companies with offices in Tórshavn: Rentacar and BVK. You can also choose to pick up you rented vehicle here. It is best to compare rates for rental vehicles before you travel.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- International Driving Permit or UK driver's licence
- Document to prove your identity such as a passport or a utility bill
- Credit card of the renter (the one used to book the vehicle)
- Confirmation of the car hire booking

Driving
The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, but it is a territory of Denmark. Generally, Danish rules of the road apply here. Drivers will be glad to know that the main islands in the Faroese archipelago are connected by a series of tunnels, causeways and vehicle ferries. Thus, getting around will be easy. When driving to a port to use a vehicle ferry, make sure to arrive at least 20 minutes before. Driving is a popular way of getting around here and you need to reserve a place in the ferry to make your journey run smoothly. Parking rules in the main cities of Tórshavn, Runavík and Klaksvík is strict. Your vehicle needs to have a parking disc, which you can acquire at any bank or tourist office. The disks show your allowed parking time.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
