    Road Rules and Petrol Stations

    • Vehicles drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. If you are a slower vehicle, move towards the shoulder so that faster cars may pass you.
    • It is compulsory for all passengers to wear a seatbelt.
    • Drinking and driving laws are quite strict in Sweden. It is best to avoid alcohol consumption if you are planning to operate a motor vehicle.
    • 50 km/h (31mph) in cities, 70 km/h (43mph) on small roads, and 110 km/h (65mph) on highways are the average speed.
    • Petrol stations are primarily self-service with automated machines and open 7 days a week. They typically accept SEK notes in denominations of 20, 50, 100 and 500, as well as major credit cards.

    Tolls

    The motorways (Motorvag) and roads of Sweden are toll-free, however, the Oresund Bridge and Svinesudsbron Bridge both apply tolls. Congestion fees are applicable for entering central Stockholm and Gothenburg. The congestion fee is based on both the day of travel and the time.

    Age Requirements

    To rent a car in Sweden you must be of at least 20 years of age (subject to car category), and have held you licence for at least 2 years. If you are under the age of 25, a daily young driver surcharge will most likely be applicable. The "young driver fee" can be found on our booking engine as well as your voucher issued from Auto Europe.

    Currency

    The Scandinavian country of Sweden's currency is the SEK (Swedish Krona, singular or Kronor, plural). Coins come in increments of 1, 5 and 10 while bank notes come in values of 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000 kronor.

    Time difference

    Sweden is in the CET (Central European Time zone). When calculating the time difference it is UTC/GMT + 1 hr. The last weekend in March and the last weekend in October are when DST (Daylight Savings Time) is applied. Other popular destination countries within the CET are France, Germany, Italy, and Spain to name a few.

    Electricity

    The electric current in Sweden is 220 volts AC in 50 cycles. The Europlug, which has two prongs, is utilized in Sweden. Depending on the age of your small electronics, you may be able to get away with just using an adapter, but with power cords that show 100-240v/50-60 Hz you will want to get a converter/transformer.

    Visa & Embassy Information

    British citizens who reside in the EU do not require a visa, regardless of the length of their stay. It is recommended however, that if you plan to stay longer than 90 days in Sweden, that they still provide residence documents.
