Stockholm Arlanda Airport Guide

Car Hire

Stockholm Airport is the main gateway into Sweden, servicing nearly 20 million passengers a year. It sits outside of Stockholm, about 23 miles to the north of the city. There is a high-speed rail service operating between the airport and the city centre, and several bus links run into downtown Stockholm. Taxis are available, but the relatively long distance to the centre of Stockholm means car rental in Stockholm Airport is a great option for travellers.

Who to Book With
Several car rental suppliers are found at the airport including Hertz, Sixt, Avis and Budget. Their central offices are all found within the airport’s Car Rental Office area, with the exception of Sixt. This rental agency is located at the long-term car park at Arlanda Langtid Alfa.

Need to Know Essentials
Tourists need to provide the below documents before renting a car in Stockholm Airport:

- A foreign driver’s licence or an International Driving Permit
- The credit card used for completing the car rental booking
- Passport identification

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Stockholm is a relatively friendly city when it comes to motoring. There is a congestion toll in the centre. This means vehicles driving into the Central Business District between 06:30 and 18:29, Monday to Friday, must pay a fee. Some car rental companies charge drivers for these tolls, but others wave the fees. The roads are in good condition and traffic issues have been reduced since the implementation of the downtown congestion tax in 2006. Tourists need to be careful when driving in the winter as roads can be slippery and dangerous. Parking is difficult to find in the heart of Stockholm as it is restricted, not to mention expensive.

Our guide to Sweden provides more details about driving here.

Transport

Several train services are found at Stockholm Airport. The Arlanda Express, SL Commuter Trains and Long Distance services are available. Flygbussarna and Swebus are the main bus services operating between downtown Stockholm and the airport. So-called ecotaxis make up most of the cabs provided at the airport. However, there are also plenty of car hire suppliers serving the terminals.

Trains
The Arlanda Express Train departs the airport every 15 minutes and reaches downtown Stockholm in about 20 minutes. Tickets can be purchased from machines and the information counters in the terminals. One-way journeys cost about £24, but children and concession travellers receive discounts on this price. Arlanda Central Station is found beneath the airport’s Sky City and offers regular commuter trains to downtown Stockholm. One-way journeys take about 40 minutes, but tickets are only about £11.

Taxis
Airport Cab and Taxi Solna are among the reliable cab companies operating at the airport. Taxi ranks are found outside each of the terminals. Pricing is deregulated so passengers should take care not to get ripped-off. Prices into downtown Stockholm are higher at night.

Taxi prices:
Stockholm Airport to Central Stockholm is about £45

Buses
Flygbussarna is an airport-operated shuttle bus that travels from all terminals to the heart of Stockholm. During the airport’s peak hours, this shuttle service picks passengers up every 10 minutes. Ticket machines, online tickets and onboard payments can be made. Prices into downtown Stockholm are usually about £9, which is relatively cheap compared to taxis and trains. Swebus is another reliable bus service which provides more than 40 departures daily. Prices for Swebus are similar to those for Fygbussarna services.

Facilities

Terminals
Stockholm Airport has four convenient terminals. Terminals 2 and 5 handle mostly international flights, including all Star Alliance and SAS international routes. Domestic flights are serviced at Terminal 3 and Terminal 4. Terminal 5, which is housed in the Arlanda North building, is the largest zone at the facility. More than 14 million passengers pass through the international terminals each year, while the domestic terminals stay busy with about five million patrons annually.

Parking
There are more than 10 parking sites and garages located at the airport. It is possible to pre-book parking spots. Some zones, like P25 and P46, are outdoor, open-air car parks. However, there are several multi-storey indoor zones. These zones include the P22 and P21 garages near Terminal 2. All parking sites charge the same hourly rate. Motorists pay £8 per hour. However, the multi-storey car parks cost more, with daily maximum fees of around £30.

Wi-Fi
The terminals at the airport provide wireless internet to passengers. However, internet access is only free for the first three hours. Following this period, the Swedavia Airport internet service is £4 per hour or £12 for a 24-hour period. Payment can be made using a credit or debit card.

Information Services
Information services are found at Terminal 2, Terminal 4 and Terminal 5. Here, passengers can speak with airport staff about flights, hotel operators, tour agencies, terminal facilities, check-in details and more. It is possible to call the airport information counters in advance.

Clear information monitors and loud speaker information points are located within the airport terminals, too.

Restaurants and Bars
More than 40 bars, cafés and restaurants operate throughout the four terminals of Stockholm Airport. Some are located before security checks and others are found in the secure zones of the terminals.

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). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
