Umeå Guide

Umea is the largest town in the north of Sweden. Here, shopping and entertainment opportunities as well as unspoilt countryside are within easy reach. Hotels are of a high standard and the region offers many exciting outdoor activities along with pleasant beaches.

Visitors come here for adventure on the beautiful canoe waterways. White-water rafting and hiking in the wilderness are just a couple of the activities that make the Umea region so attractive. Fishing on the coast, in running waters and on the serene lakes, is also a favourite pastime; the tranquillity of the area is especially ideal for anglers.

A wander around the town reveals birch-lined boulevards and red-brick architecture, which is best admired in the 19th century neo-Gothic church lying to the west of Döbelns Park. The district known as the Östra Kyrkogatan contains a rich concentration of antique houses. Also worth visiting, the sprawling museum complex, known as the Gamlia, lies to the northeast of the centre.

Umea is a university town and the large student presence along with the theatre, opera, concerts and other cultural attractions, keeps the city vibrant. Apart from fishing and adventure sports, there is also a choice of five different golf courses, offering between 9 and 27 holes. Alternatively, a truly magical way to explore the countryside is on horseback.

If you have a car, the other towns in the region make up for the things the city lacks, such as the rushing waters of an unexploited national river and several elk farms. Nearby sunny Holmön Island is a gem of a place to explore; while Norrbyskär is famous for its magnificent cultural history.

The E4 motorway runs through Umea and route 92 connects with the interior of the country. There is an overnight train from Stockholm, but the most convenient way to get here is to fly to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport, then on to Umea Airport, which is five kilometres south of town. Ferries from Finland arrive at Holmsund Port to the south.

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).
