Driving tips for your Kastrup rental car
Kastrup is cycle-friendly, much like the rest of Copenhagen. Be aware of multiple bike paths, crossings and cyclists whilst driving in the region.
● Drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left.
● Always give way to buses, pedestrians and cyclists.
● Speed limits are as follows: 50 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h in rural areas and up to 130 km/h on motorways.
● Stick to the speed limit - speed cameras are placed throughout the country.
● All passengers must wear a seatbelt.
● Use a GPS if you are unfamiliar with the local language, as road names can be confusing.
Parking in Kastrup and around Copenhagen
To park in Denmark, a parking disc is required for all vehicles and is given with rental cars. It is used for free parking spots as a clock to time your length of stay as a time restriction will be enforced. Display it on the dashboard for the duration of your rental. On-street parking can be difficult to find during weekdays in downtown Copenhagen, but there are many parking garages in the area. Be sure to abide by posted signs regarding time limits and hourly rates. Another option is to leave the car hire at your accommodation provider and use public transportation to visit the city.
