Explore Gothenburg

There is no shortage of museums in Gothenburg. The Stadtsmuseum is located in the former site of the headquarters of the Swedish East India Company and includes an extensive collection of porcelain and the famous Askekarr Viking ship. Visit the nearby Maritima Centrum where you can roam aboard the destroyer and even the moored submarine.

Gotaplatsen is the modern cultural center of Gothenburg and a nexus between the city’s past and future. An afternoon stroll at the Konstmuseet (Art Museum) will reveal the gamut of art styles, ranging from impressionist paintings, Pop Art and most impressively superb Swedish work.

Visit the Liseberg Amusement Park, with it's famous Spaceport at 150m high, as the park is considered as Sweden's most popular attraction. After Liseberg the collected museums are the most popular attractions.

Nearby is the Gothenburg archipelago, consisting of Vrango, Branno, Styrso, Vargo and a few smaller islands each of these has a unique character. The islands located in the south have no traffic on them, and there are many quaint paths passing the fishing cottages and bathing rocks.

East of Gothenburg is the beautiful Vadstena, positioned next to Lake Vattern. Visit the beautifully, imposing Renaissance castle of Vadstena slott, which has beautiful views of the harbour as well as the stunning Lake in the far distance. Originally designed by the Vasa kings, it houses items of period furniture and paintings, including a Van Dyck.


Gothenburg receives flights from many European cities. Most flights from North American and Asian centers fly through Copenhagen where you may have to change planes with links to most major cities in Sweden.

Car rental companies available at Gothenburg Airport include Europcar, Budget, Avis, Sixt and Hertz. Compare quotes from over fifty companies using our comparison website and we will find you the best deals online.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
