Driving Tips

Owing to its clean, simple aesthetic and thoroughly modern infrastructure you can easily navigate the compact cities of Denmark. Road trips are also easy thanks to a mostly flat landscape and with no part of the country more than 32 miles from the sea. With your vehicle you can decide how much of the 1,000 miles of motorways and more than 40,000 miles of roads stretching from Copenhagen to the spectacular view of two seas colliding in North Jutland you want to cover. Here are some things to keep in mind while driving your rental car in Denmark.
