Car rental location Trollhättan Airport

Trollhättan Airport Guide

Car Hire

The closest airport to the town of Uddevalla rests about 15 miles to the east, on the doorstep of Trollhattan. Officially known as Trollhattan-Vanersborg Airport, the facility currently serves domestic flights to the capital of Sweden, Stockholm. The airport is the quickest gateway to Uddevalla. This former ship-building hub may not be as industrially famous as it once was, but plenty of interesting landmarks are still thriving, like the 10,000 year old shell banks and Uddevalla’s outdoor marvels. Visitors can reach the town of Uddevalla via car rental at Trollhattan-Vanersborg Airport.

Who to Book With
Even though there are no car hire suppliers inside the airport, there are still several major rental agencies providing car hire pickup close to its premises. Budget, Avis and Europcar are some of the largest rental firms operating near Uddevalla. Pre-booking vehicles online is recommended to reduce wait time.

Need to Know Essentials
Visitors must present the following documents to pick up rental cars near Uddevalla Airport:

- An International Driving Permit or national licence
- Passport
- A credit card
- A confirmation receipt of booking

For further information read our FAQs guide.

Driving
Driving in and around Uddevalla is reasonably convenient for travellers. Traffic doesn’t get all that hectic, except for peak hour times during the work week. Street-side parking in the downtown area is available, but many businesses, hotels, restaurants and other services provide on-site parking. The E45 connects Uddevalla with European Route 6 to the west and Trollhattan to the east, passing through the centre of town in the process. Be careful when driving in the winter months. Ice and snow can blanket the streets, creating havoc if motorists are not cautious.

Visit our Sweden Guide for more driving information.

Transport

Once tourists arrive into the airport, it is possible to reach the heart of Uddevalla in less than 30 minutes. Several transportation options are available, including taxis, public buses and the ever-present car rental services. Trollhattan Central Train Station is linked to the airport via the public bus network.

Trains
Trains do not go directly to the airport near Uddevalla. Nevertheless, tourists in Uddevalla will be able to travel by train to the heart of Trollhattan, then take a convenient taxi or bus ride to the airport, which is just three miles to the north of the station.

Buses
Passengers who choose to catch a bus from the airport will need to walk some 500 metres to the nearest bus stop; known as the Maloga stop. If visitors need to view schedules and routes, they should simply visit the Vasttraffik website. Buses do reach the town of Uddevalla, not to mention dozens of other settlements near the main airport. Bus tours can also be arranged before and after arriving at the airport. Choose Karl Everts Buses for longer distance journeys.

Taxis
Taxis are certainly the most expensive option when it comes to the airport’s transportation choices. Flygtaxi is a safe option, as most airports around Sweden are serviced by this reputable taxi company. Of course, tourists can also opt for local companies, including Taxi Uddevalla and Taxi Trollhattan. Taxis generally cost between £25 and £30 between the airport and Uddevalla.

Facilities

Terminals
Only the one terminal caters for all flights into and out of the airport. It’s operated by Fyrstadsflyget, offering flights to Stockholm Bromma Airport, Sweden. Golden Air, which has its headquarters at the terminal, is the only carrier serving Trollhattan-Vanersborg Airport.

Wi-Fi
Wireless internet is not available at the airport.

Information Services
Due to its small size, the terminal doesn’t staff an information desk. Nevertheless, passengers in need of assistance can enquire at Golden Air’s check-in counters, as staff are not only friendly, but always willing to answer questions about the airport or surrounding area.

Accessibility
Any passenger with mobility limitations needs to inform Golden Air at the time of booking. This will allow the airline to arrange necessary assistance for arriving passengers. The terminal is only one storey, so patrons don’t need to worry about lifts and stairs.

Restaurants and Bars
The airport is only small, so refreshments and beverage outlets are rather limited. Nevertheless, the terminal is home to a small café, which boasts a great menu, complete with sandwiches, ice-creams, desserts and drinks. The café also provides excellent views of the runway.

VIP Lounges
There are no VIP lounges found within the terminal building.

Money and ATMs
Automatic teller machines are found inside the terminal. However, it is best to exchange money prior to flying from Stockholm. Monetary exchange booths are limited around Uddevalla and at the airport.

Shopping
The facilities at the airport are limited, and visitors will find very little in the way of shops. There are several gift and knick-knack stalls selling souvenirs and other local items.

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).
