Stockholm Arlanda Airport Car Rental

Stockholm Arlanda Airport Car Rental.....
 

The Arlanda Airport in Sweden is the biggest airport in the Stockholm area.  The airport itself sits about 40-45 km to the North of the city of Stockholm, and about 35 km to the South of the Uppsala region.  2010 was a busy year for the airport as international travel to and from the airport totaled almost 13 million international travelers.  Domestic travelers within the region totaled about 4 million passengers, making a total of nearly 17 million folks to and from the facility.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport Car Rental.....
 

There are currently five car rental companies situated at the Stockholm Arlanda Airport.  These include Sixt, Hertz, Europcar, Budget and Avis.  Shuttles are available (and run almost consistently - especially during peak hours) to the parking lots where the vehicles are actually located.  The car rental parking lot is a few km's from the airport.


Directions to Stockholm...


After getting off the shuttle bus and locating your car, most likely you are headed to the city of Stockholm.  To get there, you will drive out of the car rental parking area and turn left to get onto Route 273.  Drive for about 1.5 km then take the first exit right at the traffic circle.  Watch for blue signs overhead and next to the road directing you.  Take the ramp onto E4-Stockholm, and continue to watch overhead signs directing you to Stockholm.  Drive about 35 km on this main road (E4/E18), then exit towards Stockholm.


Filling Stations Near the Arlanda Stockholm Airport...


When returning your vehicle, you might want to re-fuel somewhere before returning.  As far as we know, there isn't a gas (petrol) station to choose from close to the car rental return center.

So, here is a Statoil location that we recommend.  
After going underneath an overpass, and about 10 km from the airport (about 25-30 km from Stockholm traveling in your rental car back to the airport) you will have an opportunity to exit after a blue sign that says "eurostop".  Follow the exit about 1 km to a Statoil petrol service station.

Stockholm Arlanda Airport Car Rental Return...

After re-fueling, simply drive back to the car rental return center.  If you are with GPS, then you will need to know that the return address is
Benstocksvagen 1, Sigtuna.

If you don't have a GPS, then when returning via A4, you will need to take the exit that says "
273 toward Flygplats/​Arlanda/​Arlandastad N".  This road will get you back to 273, and eventually the rental car return area.  Rental car company signs are well-posted once you get close to the area.    


Stockholm Arlanda Airport Amenities.....
 

A decent variety of shopping awaits you at the Arlanda.  There's quite a bit of duty free, and many people feel like they are funneled into these shops, but all in all shopping here is better than at most.  Unfortunately, Wi-Fi isn't free at the Arlanda, but outside of that this is a pretty good place to get lost in for a couple of hours.  There is a pretty neat food market you might want to check out.

Hotels Near the Stockholm Arlanda Airport.....
 

Radisson SAS SkyCity Hotel - This one is about as convenient as it gets.  Sitting inside the airport itself, it couldn't be any closer!  Most folks say that it's pretty expensive, but after running thru a couple of mock bookings it didn't seem too bad to us.  Maybe the time of the year (or week) makes a big difference.  Also, reviewers say that you shouldn't worry about airport/airplane noise.  You'll not even know that you're sitting in an airport once you check in.

Radisson SAS Arlandia Hotel - Don't get this one confused with the SkyCity Hotel that sits inside the terminal.  Instead this hotel is situated right near the car rental park a couple of km's away from the actual terminal itself.  It is accessible via rental car, or via a free airport shuttle too (look for yellow bus #14).  The shuttle runs about every fifteen minutes from about 5 am to about 12 am - midnight.  There is a free Wi-Fi connection at the hotel and by most accounts, the food isn't bad at all.  Prices at this hotel versus the SkyCity Hotel that sits inside the terminal is a little cheaper.  We have calculated that you will save around 20% is staying outside the terminal at this hotel.


Car Rental Types at the Arlanda Airport.....
 

Economy cars, SUV's, minivans, luxury cars and regular sedans are all typically available for hire at the Arlanda Airport.  However, that's not always the case.  One thing is for certain, if you book online your chances of getting the type of vehicle that you want are much better.  Not only will you have more options from which to choose, your car rental prices will also be better online than securing the booking at the airline.  

Also, remember that you have options to add on if you desire.  GPS's, additional drivers and children's seats are all generally available to be added on to the booking as well.  Use our booking engine above to determine the cost of these add-ons at the airport.

Finally, we want you to know that we appreciate your business very much, and we hope that you learned a little about Stockholm Arlanda Airport car rental.
